In the early going, the Montreal Canadiens have made a habit of falling behind in games and clawing their way back to earn victories either late or in the shootout. While they rolled in to Vancouver with an impressive 8-2-0 record, their underlying numbers showed some warning signs that they couldn't keep up this pace, and they were bound to drop a few games eventually.

Well, road-weary but still tenacious, the Habs managed to fall behind but claw their way back into the game once more, before the hometown Canucks finally fended them off with some beautiful Sedinery in overtime.

Read past the jump for a full recap of a hard-fought (and controversial!) 3-2 overtime win.

Carey Price, P.K. Subban, and Max Pacioretty lead the NHL-leading Habs into Vancouver tonight to take on the Canucks. The visitors from the East are looking to bounce back from a pair of sub-par performances against the two teams in Alberta, but it will be difficult as the Canucks have been at home for a few days preparing for the road-weary original-six squad.

FORWARD MARCH: Mental Illness and Hockey

I've been researching this topic for a while now. Over the summer I had many friends who are professional hockey players relay stories to me of life growing up playing the game and of life on the road from team to team. At the same time, I was reading biographies of players from all levels that had one thing in common: they didn't know where to turn once the game was gone.

I originally wrote this article for my own blog. It got a LOT of traction, but not enough. The audience here at Canucks Army is a million times more then my little blog so I figured I would put it out here so more eyes can see it. It's a very important piece that nobody ever thinks about. Nobody ever thinks about the other side of the game. The dark side, if you will. This here is the tale of little Johnny Hockey (no, not Johnny Gaudreau, this is just a fictitious name) as he works his life away to the game he loves. This story has been pieced together from true stories that happened to hockey players around the world.
