.ca profiles each team leading up to puck drop. Next up is the Montreal Canadiens - Canadas top franchise last season with a lot of pressure to improve on last springs playoff success. Catch up on their off-season moves and the issues they face this season, as well as their analytical breakdown by TSNs Scott Cullen. Division: Atlantic GM: Marc Bergevin Head Coach: Michel Therrien 2013-14: 46-28-8 (3rd in Atlantic) Playoffs: Lost in Eastern Conference Final Goals For: 209 (21st) Goals Against: 201 (8th) PP: 17.2% (19th) PK: 85.1% (4th) That Was Then: After a 2012-13 season that saw the Canadiens capture the division title and qualify for the post-season, most of the Montreal faithful were happy with their turnaround from a last place finish in the Eastern Conference basement a year earlier. Not Marc Bergevin. "There were a many positives from last year," he told his players flatly prior to last seasons training camp. "We made the playoffs but lost in the first-round (to Ottawa). We cant be satisfied with that." The Canadiens struggled in the first quarter of the season, with a 10-9-2 record and slow starts from two of their top forwards. David Desharnais, with just one assist in his first 17 games, was chastised on social media by Montreal mayor Denis Coderre - who called for his demotion to Hamilton of the American Hockey League. Max Pacioretty, who was also struggling on the score sheet, was suddenly the subject of trade speculation. All of that came to a head on Nov. 19, when Pacioretty scored a natural hat trick and Desharnais notched two assists in the Habs 6-2 win over the Minnesota Wild. That victory put the Canadiens top scoring duo back on track, as well as kickstart a 9-0-1 run through Dec. 7. The rest of December and January werent particularly kind, headlined by a listless 5-0 home loss to Washington on Jan. 25 that saw the club booed mercilessly at the Bell Centre. Cue Bergevin, who saw it all first-hand and had all of his players stay in the dressing room to address the media after the game. That subtle (or not-so-subtle depending what he said to his players) reminder of accountability worked as the Habs recovered quickly and went 5-1-1 into the Olympic break. Going into the NHLs 3pm et trade deadline on Mar. 3, things looked very quiet from the front office. The team had already acquired depth players in forward Dale Weise and defenceman Mike Weaver and appeared to be standing pat. That is, until 2:59pm et when news broke that the Canadiens - who werent even rumoured to be in the running - acquired arguably the biggest name of the day in sniper Thomas Vanek. The Austrian winger, who settled in on a line with Desharnais and Pacioretty, gave the Canadiens that added offensive punch they needed to make the post-season. Which brings us to Mar. 15 and a nationally televised Saturday night game at home against Ottawa. Down 4-1 late in the third period, the Canadiens - in an NHL first - stunned the Senators with three unanswered goals in the final three-and-a-half minutes of play en route to an incredible 5-4 overtime win. As Therrien and Bergevin later admitted, that victory turned their season around and gave them the momentum to clinch a post-season berth with an 11-3-1 finish in their final 15 games. What happened in the playoffs was beyond just about everyones expectations, as the Canadiens knocked off the Tampa Bay Lightning and hated Boston Bruins before losing out in six games to the New York Rangers in the Eastern Conference Final. Just two wins shy of their first Stanley Cup Final since 1993, it will be difficult for Bergevin and Therrien to temper expectations after the Habs best post-season showing of this generation.

Analysis: Games 1-20: Spectacular goaltending from Carey Price overcame a lack of finish early. Games 21-41: Percentages closer to average, possession falls, but record strong thanks to four OT/SO wins. Games 42-62: Top-shelf goaltending and improved finish kept Habs rolling, despite subpar possession stats. Games 63-82: Addition of Thomas Vanek helped elevate shooting percentage. Key 2014 Additions: F P-A Parenteau, F Manny Malhotra, F Jiri Sekac, D Tom Gilbert Key 2014 Subtractions: F Daniel Briere, F Brian Gionta, D Josh Gorges, D Francis Bouillon, F Ryan White, D Douglas Murray, F Louis Leblanc, F Thomas Vanek, F George Parros This Is Now: Daniel Brieres tenure with the Canadiens lasted just one season, as the veteran centre was shipped to the Colorado Avalanche for a younger, bigger and more productive P-A Parenteau. Bergevin also parted ways with captain Brian Gionta and shot-blocking blueliner Josh Gorges, as both headed to the Buffalo Sabres through free agency and a trade. On July 1, the Canadiens added faceoff specialist Manny Malhotra, who should take some of the defensive zone responsibilities off two-way centres Tomas Plekanec and Lars Eller. Free agent defenceman Tom Gilbert was also brought in, providing power play help and a valuable right-handed shot behind Andrei Markov and P.K. Subban. Markov appears to be a career Canadien after signing a new three-year contract prior to July 1, while Subban - much to the delight of Canadiens fans - signed an eight-year, $72 million contract. Giontas absence leaves the Canadiens with two roles to fill - a stable second/third line right winger and a leader in the dressing room. Parenteau believes he can take the role on the second line, while free agent signing Jiri Sekac will also get a look. Where the leadership element is concerned, Giontas (and Gorges) departure means the torch will be passed to a core headlined by younger players like Pacioretty, Subban and Brendan Gallagher. TSN Montreal reporter John Lus Five Key Storylines heading into training camp: 1. How is Carey Prices left knee (injured in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Final in a collision with Chris Kreider) and can he replicate his (non-Olympic) success? 2. Will a bigger contract mean bigger responsibilities for P.K. Subban? 3. Who will win the battle at right wing on the second and third lines? 4. Who will be the Canadiens captain after losing two key leaders in Gorges and Gionta? 5. Young defenders contending to be full-time NHLers - how will Nathan Beaulieu, Jarred Tinordi and Greg Pateryn fit in?

B-Level prospects are prospective backup goaltenders, bottom pairing defencemen and bottom six forwards. Fantasy - Cullens Player to Watch Alex Galchenyuk The third overall pick in 2012 has shown flashes of talent in two pro campaigns, but struggled during his sophomore season, particularly after missing time with a broken hand, scoring three goals and eight points in 21 games after returning from the injury. Nevertheless, the 20-year-old has the size and skill to be a difference maker for the Habs, provided he is utilized in a sufficiently prominent offensive role. Through his first two years, there have been some ups and down when it comes to ice time, as Galchenyuk has averaged 13:30 per game over his first 113 NHL games, but if he stays healthy, and plays a top-six role this season, Galchenyuk could be poised for a breakthrough season.

.The South African had three birdies on the front nine and another four after the turn at Leopard Creek Country Club to move to 16-under 128 overall.Grace, who won all four of his European Tour titles in 2012, dropped his only shot of the competition on the par-3 fifth.HAMILTON, Ont. -- The Grand Rapids Griffins scored three goals in 33 seconds of the second period en route to defeating the Hamilton Bulldogs 6-1 in American Hockey League action on Friday. Calle Jarnkrok had two goals, while Cory Emmerton, Andrej Nestrasil, Mitch Callahan and Teemu Pulkkinen also scored for the Griffins (9-2-2). Petr Mrazek made 30 saves in the win. Sven Andrighetto scored the lone goal for the Bulldogs (5-4-3). Dustin Tokarski made seven saves in relief of starter Robert Mayer, who allowed five goals on 14 shots in 31 minutes of action. Nestrasil began the decisive flurry at 10:52 of the second period, as he fooled Mayer with a long-range effort from the right to give the Griffins a 3-0 lead. Things went from bad to worse for the Hamilton goaltender when Gustav Nyquist found Jarnkrok with a centering pass, and he scored his second goal of the game with a high wrist shot at 11:15. Mayers night came to an end when he conceded his fifth goal at 11:25. He saved Nestrasils initial shot, but spilled the rebound to Callahan, who shifted past him and slotted the puck over the line. Tokarski replaced Mayer after the fifth goal but had little luck as he was beaten by the first shot he faced. A dazed Bulldogs team fell back in the face of another Griffin rush, and Pulkkinen fiired a slap shot past Tokarski as he crossed the top of the right circle to make it 6-0 at 12:05.

. Andrighetto ended Mrazeks shutout bid with 54 seconds to play in the third period, firing a slap shot from the blue line that beat the goaltender over the near shoulder. The Bulldogs enjoyed a bright start to Fridays game, but that momentum was reversed when Emmerton struck to open the scoring for the Griffins at 8:05 of the first period. Alexey Marchenkos initial pass from the point was deflected into the air, but Emmerton successfully gloved the puck and dropped it to his stick before turning and firing a slap shot from the high slot. The puck stayed along the ice and clipped Mayers far post on its way into the net. Penalty trouble deepened Hamiltons deficit just minutes later. After Greg Pateryn was initially whistled for boarding at 9:15, Maxime Macenauer was assessed a double-minor penalty for high-sticking 30 seconds later, giving the Griffins 1:30 to work with a two-man advantage. Grand Rapids wasted no time in capitalizing on its opportunity, as Gustav Nyquist slid a pass across the blue line to Jarnkrok, who fired a heavy slap shot high and past Mayers outstretched blocking glove at 11:03 of the first period. Both clubs went 1 for 7 on the power play.
