    Jack Todd: Kent Hughes tasked with returning Canadiens to glory

    Article content It took almost two months, during which the once mighty Montreal Canadiens skidded downhill like a skeleton racer going for Olympic gold, but the Habs finally have a general manager. Article content The man of the hour is former player agent Kent Hughes, 51, now the 18th GM in club history. Hughes will be charged with the unenviable task of reversing the fortunes of a team that, as of Monday, was 7-25-5 in the most calamitous season in its long, storied history.

Gallagher’s feet are not in the crease, however, his rear end extends deep into Frederik Andersen’s crease, and, as the goaltender moves up to cut the angle and challenge the shot, does make contact. The contact isn’t initiated by the forward who went to the net but the goal was called back and a minor penalty for interference was assessed.
