Canadiens’ Montembeault grabs highlight from Roy in 43-save win over Islanders


MONTREAL — In the long run, it was 35, not 33, who received the evening, and that was becoming. Patrick Roy didn’t need this sport to be about him, and Samuel Montembeault made certain it wasn’t.

The 27-year-old made 43 saves, registered his second help of the season and wasn’t even named a star on this 4-3 win for his Montreal Canadiens over the New York Islanders.

However he actually took the shine off a legend, who was celebrated in chill-inducing vogue earlier than the puck dropped.

Oh, the followers roared for Roy, who was again behind the bench on this constructing for the primary time in over seven years. They did it through the Canadian nationwide anthem, with a video montage of Roy enjoying on the scoreboard, and this was greater than only a nod to his return. It was principally an ode to Roy’s legacy as a two-time Stanley Cup-winning goaltender in bleu, blanc et rouge.

For Montembeault, a French-Canadian goaltender tasked with filling Sasquatch-sized skates of those that have come earlier than him, it was a spinetingling second that solely bolstered to him how particular it’s to be in his place.

“It was superior,” he stated. “I used to be dealing with the opposite approach and couldn’t see what was happening when it began going loopy in there. Folks have been screaming like loopy, and if that doesn’t make you need to play hockey, I don’t know what’s going to.”

It took simply 35 seconds for No. 35 to place his stamp on this sport, stopping two harmful photographs in succession to maintain a fragile Canadiens crew from cracking in opposition to a determined Islanders crew.

Canadiens coach Martin St. Louis stated, “He made two large saves, and that enabled us to not need to chase the sport,” and known as Montembeault’s efficiency “wonderful.”

Nobody watching would’ve disagreed with that evaluation.

The saves Montembeault got here up with after the Canadiens took a 3-0 lead, those he made to maintain the Islanders at bay till it was now not doable — with Bo Horvat scoring on a five-on-three benefit within the second interval and Mat Barzal and Kyle Palmieri scoring on a five-minute energy play in the direction of the top of the third interval after Montreal’s Brendan Gallagher was thrown out of the sport for an unlawful examine to Adam Pelech’s head that can certainly lead to a suspension — and the final ones he stretched out for after Sean Monahan made it 4-3 solely helped legitimize his standing.

“He does it each evening for us and all the time offers us an opportunity,” stated Cole Caufield, who scored his 17th aim of the season in magnificent vogue within the first interval and assisted on Monahan’s game-winner within the third. “We’re killing a five-minute penalty on the finish of the sport, and that’s by no means simple, however he competed so exhausting and made wonderful saves earlier than they scored. He competed all evening, and he’s been enormous for us each evening. I feel he ought to’ve been greater than a primary star tonight.”

What Montembeault is proving is he’s worthy of the highlight that’s on him, and even a little bit of the one he took from Roy.

They’re inextricably related, each of them hyperlinks in a protracted chain of Quebecois goaltenders to have served as starters for probably the most profitable franchise in NHL historical past. However Roy holds standing on this metropolis that Montembeault can solely dream of sooner or later reaching.

Nonetheless, it was particular for the Becancour, Que. native to witness how Montreal’s adopted son from Quebec Metropolis stays some of the revered Canadiens of all time. It was particular for Montembeault to ponder the chance he has to jot down his personal story right here and dream of it ending with him taking his place among the many greats.

Canadiens captain Nick Suzuki, who had a aim and an help in opposition to the Islanders, believes he can do it.

“He’s taken that function and carried out every part he can to be that sort of goalie,” he stated. “We’re fortunate to have Monty the best way he’s enjoying, and hopefully he continues to do it.”

It was unfathomable Montembeault may when he was claimed off waivers from the Florida Panthers in 2021.

It didn’t seem all that rather more doubtless as he performed his first 38 video games for the Canadiens.

However he established himself as an excellent goaltender final season and cemented himself as a starter early on on this one, en path to securing a three-year, $9.45-million contract that can be a steal if he continues to have nights like this one.

That Montembeault got here into it after his most disappointing begin of the season — he allowed eight targets in a 9-4 loss to the Boston Bruins final Saturday — and rebounded as he did in entrance of Roy and after such an electrical second, speaks to why he’s well-suited to proceed proving it.

“He’s fairly even keel,” St. Louis stated earlier within the day. “He does a really severe job however doesn’t take himself so significantly, and I feel it helps him.”

“I feel it will be simple to really feel like quite a lot of strain is on his shoulders,” stated Mike Matheson hours earlier than registering an help on the identical play Montembeault did. “However he’s doing an incredible job of not doing that and actually simply taking it as, ‘OK, I’m enjoying tonight? I’m going to do the very best that I can,’ and that’s a good way to have a look at it.”

It’s that perspective that’s helped gas Montembeault’s ascension, and it actually served him properly on an evening on which all the eye was alleged to be on one other goaltender.
