Favre injuried, the Cowboys on top of the NFC.

An epic match of this 2007 season was presented yesterday at the Texas stadium as the Green Bay Packers and the Dallas Coyboys, the two top teams of the NFC faced each other.

Brett Favre was injuried to an elbow during the second quarter and was forced to the sidelines for the rest of the match. Coyboys' quarterback Tony Romo grabbed the opportunity and registered a 309 yards passing evening. The Coyboys finally won the contest by 37-27.

Favre was only able to gain 56 yards before being hurt. Aaron Rodgers came in to replace Favre and tried the best he could to keep the Pack in the game. Rodgers passed for 202 yards and he registered his very first NFL touchdown pass to Greg Jennings, keeping the Packers in the game for a while. But the Coybows won that leg and all the Packers can hope now is to take their revenge during the NFC championship game, giving access to the Super Bowl.

The Coyboys now have an impressive 11-1 record while the Packers only suffer their second loss of the season as they now stand at 10-2. Brett Favre now has 10 days to recover from his injury and keep his NFL record of 249 consecutive start alive next week.

A new opponent for Jean Pascal.

The fight scheduled for next December 7th at the Bell cnetre in Montreal between Jean Pascal (18-0-0) and Emiliano Cayetano will not take place. Instead of Cayetano, Pascal will face Brian "Tha Assassin" Norman (15-5-0, 4 KO).

The reason for the change is pretty simple. Cayetano has visa problems in his own country and GYM (Groupe Yvon Michel) decided to make the change to keep Jean Pascal active.

Sean Taylor dies at 24.

The Washington Redskins free safety Sean Taylor passed away at the age of 24 yesterday at the Jackson Memorial hospital after being shot in a leg during a home invasion on monday.

An intruder, who is still at large, invaded Taylor's home and shot Taylor in a leg damaging the very important femoral artery. Taylor have lost an important quantity of blood and was transported to the hospital where the medical personnel tried to stabilize their patient.

Taylor passed away yesterday morning and was said to have never regained conciousness after his arrival at the hospital.

Sean Taylor was at his 4th NFL season after playing his college football with the Miami University. The Redskins will honor Taylor by displaying his number 21 outside the stadium and on his teammates helmets this weekend. Head coach Joe Gibbs said that he never faced such a situation before and said that he ignored how they will go thru the situation. But one thing is sure, they will try to find a collective way to carry on.

The Redskins will face the Buffalo Bills on sunday. Our sincere condoleances goes to the Taylor family.

Shaky win.

The Montreal Canadiens have ended their two game losing streak as they edged the Toronto Maple Leafs 4-3 yesterday evening.

Once again, Montreal got away with the win because of their power play production. Alex Kovalev scored twice during the man advantage while Guillaume Latendresse scored the other one for Montreal. Latendresse was replacing Michael Ryder on the first offensive line along with Saku Koivu and Chris Higgins. Andrei Kostitsyn registered the winning goal during the shootout session.

As they were leading 3-2 late in the game, the Habs have seen Mats Sundin tie the game up at 3-3 with only 18 seconds to go to the match. Nobody scored during the overtime period. Carey Price did very well in net once again especially during the first period. The Leafs registered a total of 18 shots on Price during the first period alone. Price made 46 saves during the game.

The Habs will travel to New-Jersey friday to face the Devils.

Jean Pascal and Joachim Alcine on the same card.

The next fight scheduled for Jean Pascal (18-0-0) has been announced this week. His next opponent will be Emiliano Cayetano (16-1-0). The fight will take place at the Bell centre in Montreal on December 7th.

Jean Pascal's undefeated streak has been built on ordinary fighters during the last 2 years. Some of them couldn't even last 3 or 4 rounds. Jean Pascal's punching power has been impressive until now. The quality of his opponents will be greatly improoved now that he is ranked in the top 10 of every boxing association. His quest for a world title will be an interesting one to watch.

Joachim Alcine will defend his title for the first time during the main event on December 7th. The challenger for Alcine's title will be Alfonso Mosquera.

Habs can't beat Buffalo.

Tonight at the Bell centre, the Montreal Canadiens had every reason to be intense and avenge that doubtful penalty awarded to Mike Komisarek costing the Habs yesterday's game.

But nothing worked as planned for the Habs as they looked very disorganized and fell once again in front of the Buffalo Sabres, this time by the score of 3-0.

Jaroslav Spacek and Thomas Vanek gave the lead to the Sabres who then stayed back and defended Jocelyn Thibault's shutout. Thibault was in to relieve Ryan Miller for that second game in two nights. Jochen Hecht added another goal into an empty net during the last minute of the game.

This is already the fifth time those two teams play each other this season and the Sabres have won the last three games. After having a hard time to get a rythm, the Sabres now show a .500 record this season. After losing Daniel Briere and Chris Drury, the Sabres now need more contribution from different players and need a constant effort in order to win. That is exactly what we are seeing now from the Sabres. Night in and night out they put their honest effort during each and every shift, we are now seeing the results of such stubborn work. Winning games.

That is the single reason why the Sabres have beaten the Habs four times in a row this season. They outworked the Habs in each games. Because there is no doubt in my mind that between those two teams, the Montreal Canadiens has more talent in it's roster. But the work ethic isn't there night in and night out. The Habs are on the cruise control way too often for them to produce decent winning streaks. Some seriousness in their work will be needed for them if they ever wish to get into the playoffs. This is Guy Carbonneau's task, get the whip out and make this team get what they really deserve. Winning more games.

Habs fought back in a losing cause.

The Montreal Canadiens were facing the Buffalo Sabres yesterday and forgot to play with intensity during the first period. The Sabres took advantage of the situation to take a 2-0 lead, en route to a 4-2 victory.

Montreal played better as the match went on, Chris Higgins gave the first spark to Montreal as he scored during the second period to reduce the score to 2-1. Then Tomas Plekanec tied the game at 2-2 on a nice play that gave hope to the Montreal fans. Despite playing a poor game, the Habs were back in the game.

The turning point of the game came late in the third period as Mike Komisarek made a diving play to push the puck out of his defensive zone. While diving for the play, Komisarek touched his opponent's skates who fell in a theatrical fashion. The referee fell for his comedy and awarded a penalty to Komisarek. The Sabres took advantage of the bad call to score the winning goal during the power play. The Sabres eventually scored a fourth goal into the empty net during the last minute of the game.

Carey Price did well in net for Montreal but it wasn't enough for the win. Both teams square off once again tonight, this time at the Bell centre in Montreal. This is the opportunity for the Habs to avenge yesterday's loss. Christobal Huet will be in net for Montreal.

Favre: new club record.

The Green Bay Packers were facing the Detroit Lions at the Thanksgiving classic yesterday. Brett Favre and the Packers looked impressive once again as they finally defeated the Lions by 37-26. And for the first time since 1929, the Pack show a 10-1 record after 11 games.

Favre also completed 20 passes in a row during yesterday's game, a new club record. The 38 year old quarterback found a fountain of youth this season. Once again, Favre played a solid game and registered 381 passing yards yesterday.

With only 5 games to go to the season, the Pack has a 4 game lead in first place of the NFC central division. With another win, the Pack will clicnch the division title.

Next week, the Packers will face the Dallas Cowboys who are also showing a 10-1 record after 11 games. The winner of this high profile match will more than likely win home field advantage for the playoffs.

So who is the best NFC team? The Packers or the Cowboys?

Begin takes care of the Islanders.

The Montreal Canadiens played a very solid road game yesterday as they dominated the New-York Islanders from start to finish to finally defeat them by 4-1.

Steve Begin sounded the charge as he scored 2 goals during the game. His first goal came only 56 seconds into the game and gave the tempo to the match. Chris Higgins and Tomas Plekanec also scored for the Habs.

Christobal Huet was once again in net for Montreal. Even after losing many games in a row, head coach Guy Carbonneau did not fold under the mediatic pressure of sending Carey Price in. So Huet stopped his losing streak and only allowed a single goal the the Islanders late into the game.

The Habs will travel to Buffalo on friday to face the Sabres. Carey Price will be in net for the Habs for this one.

Sens spoil Larry's evening.

The Ottawa Senators looked like they were inspired by Larry Robinson's jersey retirement yesterday as they took care of the Montreal Canadiens rather easily, defeating them 4-2.

Dany Heatley and Jason Spezza were firing on all cylinders as they both registered a 3 point night. Patrick Eaves and Chris Neil also scored for Ottawa. They still stand on top of the Eastern conference.

The only cheers for Montreal fans came when Guillaume Latendresse and Chris Higgins scored but it was clearly insufficent. As for Montreal's goaltender Christobal Huet, he is now facing a serious losing streak as he has now lost his last 3 starts.

Montreal will now visit the New-York Islanders next wednesday and we should see Carey Price in net for the Habs.

Larry Robinson immortalized tonight.

Tonight, Larry Robinson, one of the greatest defensemen to ever wear the Montreal Canadiens jersey was honored as his famous number 19 was raised to the Bell centre ceiling.

Looking at his past accomplishments as a part of the Montreal Canadiens, this jersey retirement ceremony is really deserved. Robinson played 1384 games during his glorious career and wrote his name on the scoring sheet a total of 958 times. He also won the Stanley cup a total of 6 times as a member of the Montreal Canadiens, has won the Conn Smythe trophy in 1978 and has won the Norris trophy 2 times.

Larry was one of my first favorite player as I was just a kid. The 1986 Stanley Cup championship, the last of his career as a player, is still very fresh to my memory. And from that very moment, my love for this hockey club has never faded.

But beyond statistical numbers, Robinson had a strong presence whenever he was on the ice. His tall stature was often needed to defend his teammates and check his opponents into the boards. The Montreal fans reserved a warm cheer for one of their favorite players. Larry Robinson will never forget this very night...the night he became a legend himself.

Thank you and congratulations Big Bird.

Habs KO's the Bruins.

The Montreal Canadiens were back in town after a four game road trip that produced 2 wins and 2 losses. Yesterday the Habs completely dominated the Boston Bruins and registered the KO punch during the third period of a 7-4 victory.

The Habs assaulted the Bruins net and registered a total of 52 shots on Tim Thomas' net. Michael Ryder registered 13 shots himself, snapping out of his lethargic streak. Saku Koivu, Tom Kostopoulos, Andrei Kostitsyn, Guillaume Latendresse, Roman Hamrlik, Mike Komisarek and Alex Kovalev registered the Montreal goals yesterday.

As for rookie goaltender Carey Price, he registered a third win at his last three starts. Head coach Guy Carbonneau will now have a choice to make. Will he continue to alternate his goalies or will he begin to give more starts to his rookie goaltender?

We will have an answer to this on monday as the first place Ottawa Senators will be in town on monday evening.

Fatal first period.

The Montreal Canadiens were concluding a four game road trip yesterday as they faced the Buffalo Sabres at the HSBC center in Buffalo.

Montreal played very poorly during the first period and allowed the Sabres to score 3 unanswered goals. The Habs played a little better for the rest of the game but the damage had already been done. Final score: Buffalo 4 Montreal 1.

Habs head coach Guy Carbonneau had moved Michael Ryder on the third offensive line and replaced him by Tom Kostopoulos. The results were awful as the first line didn't produce anything good all game long. So Carbonneau decided to put Ryder back on the first line during the second period.

The Canadiens have to forget this poor game and focus on tonight's game. The Boston Bruins are at the Bell centre tonight and Guy Carbonneau have selected Carey Price, his rookie, to face the Bruins tonight. Some reprters in Montreal are now speculating on when Carey Price will take the No1 goalie spot away from Christobal Huet. Carey Price has won his last 2 starts while Christobal Huet has lost his last 2 starts...

The Bell centre lost value.

The home of the Montreal Canadiens, the Bell centre has lost near to the three quarter of his value according to an expert evaluator from the hockey club.

According to Benoit Egan, an expert evaluator for the Montreal Canadiens, the Bell centre opened on march 1996 at the cost of $240 Millions is now evaluated at as low as $60 Millions. That low evaluation is in cause in a trial between the city of Montreal and the club itself over the amount of taxes paid by the club to the city of Montreal.

The city of Montreal evaluated the building at $150 Millions between 2004 and 2006. The city asked the club the amount of $29.2 Millions in taxes during this period. The club is contesting this amount with their own building evaluation. Should the club win the pending cause, a tax return of around $12.2 Millions would be given back by the city.

A lot of money is involved so lets see how this story will devellop in the coming weeks.

Habs wins one at the ACC.

The Montreal Canadiens and the Toronto Maple Leafs played a very entertaining game yesterday at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. This time, Montreal managed to win at the Air Canada Centre.

Montreal had sent Carey Price in net for a change as Christobal Huet had his share of problems as he had never registered a victory in career in Toronto. The young goaltender did well once again and allowed Montreal to win by 4-3 in overtime.

Kyle Wellwood has made Montreal suffer once again as he scored his first two gols of the season. Boyd Devereaux then gave the 3-2 lead to the Leafs during the third period. But with just 7 minutes to go to the game, Alex Kovalev tied the score at 3-3. And at the beginning of the overtime period, Mike Komisarek intercepted a pass and went one-on-one with Leafs goaltender Andrew Raycroft. The defensemen chose a shot between Raycroft's legs and scored to end the contest.

The final game of this 4 games road trip will take place in Buffalo next friday.

The 2007 HHOF inductees.

Yesterday in Toronto was held the ceremony to induct Mark Messier, Ron Francis, Al MacInnis and Scott Stevens into the Hockey Hall of Fame. They were awarded their commemorative ring yesterday evening.

The event was announced a few months ago already and the choice of the players inducted made the unanimity among everyone. All of those players were hockey elite superstars.

One thing that came out of the evening is the fact that every new inductee has expressed the wish to continue to be involved in hockey. All of them wish to have either a coaching or a manager position in a near future. MacInnis is currently vice-president of hockey operations with the St-Louis Blues.

The passion for the game and the wish to give back what was given to him is the main motivation for Al MacInnis.

Everything I have, I owe it to hockey. Said Ron Francis.

Their passion has lifted them to the highest honors in hockey and the passion for the game is still intact. Their contributions to the next generation of players will feel like giving back what was given to them.

Congratulations to all of them for a great career.

Habs-Leafs tonight.

The Toronto Maple Leafs and the Montreal Canadiens will square off once again tonight this time at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. Habs head coach, Guy Carbonneau has selected his rookie goaltender to start the game.

Carey Price has been selected to be in net for Montreal tonight. Thus far, Price has a 3-1-1 record and a 2.33 goal against average. The decision of choosing Carey Price can be explainable: Christobal Huet has never won a game at the Air Canada Centre in career and has really struggled the last time he faced the Leafs. So Guy Carbonneau will give the chance to his rookie sensation.

Steve Begin will be back in the lineup for Montreal tonight.

Sens secures 1st place.

The Montreal Canadiens were on the road today for an important game as they faced the 1st place Ottawa Senators. Montreal was only 5 points behind the Sens before the game. A very surprizing start of season for the Habs.

After a power play goal by Andrei Markov during the first period, Montreal saw the Senators dominate the game. Only Christobal Huet in net was refusing to let one in and kept the game at 1-0 Montreal for a long time.

The Senators worked harder and pressed the issue late in the game and finally managed to score 2 quick goals to finally add another one in an empty net during the final minute of the game. Chris Neil scored the game-winner while Daniel Alfredsson scored 2 goals and Dany Heatley registered 2 assists.

Final score: Ottawa Senators 3 - Montreal Canadiens 1.

So with the win, the Senators increase their divisional lead to 7 points in front of Montreal. A little margin of error will be appreciated by the Ottawa players.

Next game for the Habs will take place tuesday in Toronto against the Maple Leafs.

Kovalev's line takes care of Boston.

The Montreal Canadiens' second offensive trio composed of Tomas Plekanec, Alex Kovalev and Andrei Kostitsyn took care of the attack and allowed the Habs to defeat the Boston Bruins 2-1.

Carey Price did well in net as he stoped 27 of the 28 shots he faced. He was especially efficient during a double penalty to his team. Boston tried to tie the game up on the double man advantage but were stoned by Price.

The Habs will now travel in Ottawa to face the 1st place Ottawa Senators next saturday.

Price in net vs Bruins tonight.

The Montreal Canadiens start a four games road trip tonight against the Boston Bruins. Head coach Guy Carboneau selected Carey Price to be in net for the Habs.

Despite Christobal Huet's performance against the Buffalo Sabres on monday, it's Carey Price that will see action tonight. Carbonneau's plan is clear: he want to see Price in action at least once a week no matter what.

On another topic, there has been many trades rumors around the team lately. The latest one came from Team 990 in Montreal. According to them, the Montreal Canadiens and the Tampa Bay Lightning are negociating to send Brad Richards to Montreal in return of goaltender Jaroslav Halak and Michael Ryder.

The rumor season is not about to end just yet because Jaroslav Halak asked to be traded a few weeks ago. Being not satisfied with a trade, Halak said he will go for an european or russian league to continue his career.

Huet shuts the Sabres down.

The Montreal Canadiens hosted the Buffalo Sabres yesterday at the Bell centre. The match itself wasn't exceptionnally exciting for the fans as the scoring was kept very low. The Habs finally won the match 2-0.

Tomas Plekanec scored the game-winner as he manoevered and slided the puck between Ryan Miller's legs. Bryan Smolinski scored the insurance goal in an empty net with 30 seconds to go.

The star of the match was Habs goaltender Christobal Huet. The goaltender stopped the 29 shots he had to face and registered his 14th career shutout. His performance compared to saturday's game versus the Toronto Maple Leafs was a lot more convincing.

The Habs will now travel for the next 4 games as they will play in Boston, Ottawa, Toronto and Buffalo on this road trip.

Brady and the Pats stay undefeated.

Yesterday, week 9 of the NFL regular season was marked by a match like no other. The two remaining undefeated teams of the league squared off.

The New-England Patriots (9-0) kept their perfect regular season record intact as they came from behind during the fourth quarter to defeat the Indianapolis Colts (7-1) by the score of 24-20.

A great matchup for the fans who were waiting for this game for many weeks now. Peyton Manning and the Colts lead the major part of the game but have lost control of the game during the fourth quarter. Tom Brady and the Patriots erased a 20-10 deficit by scoring two touchdowns to finally edge the Colts.

This was a high quality match and I appreciated every minute of it.

Leafs dents Habs streak.

The Toronto Maple Leafs sneaked out a win at the Bell centre yesterday evening. It wasn't easy for the Leafs but they came thru.

A great performance from the Leafs goaltender, Vesa Toskala, coupled with an important goal by Matt Stajan late in the game is the story of this 3-2 Leafs victory. In fact, the game itself tipped in favor of the Leafs because Vesa Toskala was more constant than Habs goaltender Christobal Huet.

Huet allowed 2 doubtful goals yesterday evening. Head coach Guy Carbonneau said he was disappointed by those two bad goals allowed.

After keeping the score at 2-2 with a couple of great saves, Huet was beaten by a soft shot that looked like it was tipped on it's way in. Matt Stajan with just over a minute to play in the third period registered the game-winner.

Mike Komisarek and Chris Higgins were the goal scorers for Montreal in a losing cause. The Habs will host the Buffalo Sabres on monday.

The Bell centre will be sold out and the atmosphere will be electric, as each time the Leafs are in town.

Many Leafs fans travel from Toronto each time the Leafs are coming to Montreal and tonight will be no exception. The building will be filled with fans cheering for both teams making it very loud. The players will feel it and the intensity in the stands will be matched on the ice tonight.

The Habs are in a very good streak right now as they won 5 of their last 6 games. They will look to extend this good streak tonight. Head coach Guy Carbonneau has chosen to send Christobal Huet in net tonight to face the Maple Leafs.

Bring on the Leafs!

Senators sign Spezza for 7 years.

The Ottawa Senators announced yesterday that the centermen of their first line, Jason Spezza, has signed a contract with them for the next 7 years. Both parties agreed on a 7 year/$49 Millions dollar contract.

The Senators are considered as one if not THE most talented team of the Eastern conference and with this singning things should remain the same for another couple of seasons.

So as of right now, the Senators have managed to sign all three players that form their first offensive line. Dany Heatley, Daniel Alfredsson and now Jason Spezza. The future of the franchise is now under contract for a long period of time and that should make the general manager job with the Senators a lot easier.

This season, Spezza has registered 13 points after the first 10 games of the season.

Habs crushes the Flyers 5-2.

The Montreal Canadiens received the visit of the Philadelphia Flyers and Daniel Briere yesterday. The fans booed Briere each and every time they had the opportunity and applauded their favorite team at the Bell centre in a 5-2 Habs win.

The Habs played a very solid game, dominating the match from end to end. The shot total represented the match pretty well as Montreal outshot the Flyers by 41 to 18 during the match. Alex Kovalev, Guillaume Latendresse, Saku Koivu, Tom Kostopoulos and Chris Higgins scored for Montreal.

The Habs are now on a very interesting streak as they won 5 of their last 6 matches, grabbing 11 of a possible 12 points in the standings. Their next opponents, the Toronto Maple Leafs, will be in town saturday night.

Daniel Briere and the Flyers are in town.

Tonight at the Bell centre, the Montreal Canadiens will host the Philadelphia Flyers and one of their newest free agent signed this summer, Daniel Briere.

This will be Briere's first presence in Montreal since this summer's bid to acquire him that mainly involved Montreal and Philadelphia. Briere has chosen to sign with Philly and the news made headlines all over in Montreal's newspapers since.

Some fans really thought that Briere would sign with the Habs and many of them are deceived of the fact that he didn't choose to continue his career with the Montreal Canadiens. I expect a loud reaction each and every time that Briere will touch the puck tonight. Briere will probably be booed all evening long by the fans who want to show their deception.

Daniel Briere showed in the past that he can cope with pressure situations. Tonight he will probably put an extra effort to beat the Habs. Should be a good one tonight.
