BROSSARD, Quebec -- The Montreal Canadiens will enter their game Tuesday against the Chicago Blackhawks tied for the second-best record in the National Hockey League, their 8-3-1 mark through 12 games sitting behind only the Anaheim Ducks.

Despite that, the Canadiens find themselves in the middle of their first mini-crisis situation of the 2014-15 season.

The Canadiens are in the midst of their first losing streak of the season, their 6-2 loss to the Calgary Flames on Sunday coming after a 3-2 overtime loss on the road to the Vancouver Canucks last Thursday.

Goalie mask designs evolve into artwork

Sunday, 11.02.2014 / 3:00 AM / Sunday Long Read

Kevin Woodley - NHL.com Correspondent

A black felt pen wielded in protest is the root of the goalie mask design revolution which has changed the literal face of hockey.

Almost 50 years later, goaltending masks have evolved into artistic storytelling of the highest order with colorful, intricate designs a seemingly mandatory part of every goaltender's wardrobe all the way down to the youth level.

Gerry Cheevers had no idea he was starting a movement during a non-descript practice in the late 1960s. He had retreated from the ice after being hit in the mask with a shot. Ordered back on the ice, Cheevers filed his protest first, having a trainer draw the representation of 10 stitches on his white mask where the puck struck him moments earlier.

"I hope to hear the news," said Gaudreau, who has one goal and four points 10 games into his first full professional season after a standout career at Boston College. "There's nothing definite yet. Each day I'm fortunate to be here and I'm going to do my best to try to make sure [general manager Brad Treliving] is telling me to get a place. Hopefully I keep proving to them and showing them that I belong here."
