IN THIS ISSUE

The Ultimate Warrior
All that should remain from the days of gladiators and Spartan warriors are tales of their courage and the crumbled ruins where their great battles were once waged. It would seem no one ever told this to Roman Hamrlik.

Red Alert
Seeing a referee raise his arm is rarely good news for Canadiens opponents this season. Find out the secret of the Habs’ deadly power play which is poised to lead the NHL for a second straight year.

Keeping the Faith
Few players know the long way to the NHL like Josh Gorges. Find out how the young defenseman kept on fighting and stopped believing in himself until he earned his spot on the Canadiens’ blue line.

Future Watch
Despite being in only his first season with the University of Michigan Wolverines, Max Paccioretty has already made his mark, skating on one of the most dangerous lines in the NCAA.

Blast from the Past
Claude Lemieux made a bet with teammate Patrick Roy during the 1986 playoffs and everyone came out a winner, expect perhaps for an innocent Walkman.

Ask Eddy
In the latest installment of our wildly popular feature starring Eddy Palchak, the longtime Habs trainer recalls Patrick Roy and his goal posts, tips for goalie pad care, the most savage beating ever laid by a Canadiens player and what really goes on between periods during the intermission.

The Last Word: Alyssa Milano
Alyssa Milano has come a long way since her days as Samantha Micelli on ABC’s Who’s the Boss? or even Phoebe Halliwell on the long-running series Charmed. Now branching out into the world of fashion, the TV and film star launched her Touch clothing line last year, and has already signed licensing deals with all major North American sports leagues. We caught up with the actress to discuss a variety of topics including hockey, the best and worst team uniforms, tattoos, and working with Arnold Schwarzenegger.  Click here for the complete interview.
