Highlights of the first half of the season
Building blocks

If there’s one thing that characterises the Canadiens’ work ethic this season it’s the number of sacrifices players have made hurling their bodies in front of pucks in 2011-12. Randy Cunneyworth’s team currently leads the NHL with a combined total of 815 blocked shots this season. Individually, Josh Gorges also leads all NHL players in that category while Hal Gill shares the 13th overall rank.
