Danault et le Canadien s’offrent les Golden Knights en cadeau

C’est Paul Byron, avec son neuvième filet de la saison, qui a donné la victoire au Canadien en prolongation. Max Domi, Brendan Gallagher et Tomas Tatar ont chacun amassé deux aides pour le Tricolore.

Malgré ses trois buts, tous marqués à égalité numérique, Danault a terminé la rencontre avec un différentiel de zéro, ayant été sur la patinoire lors des trois réussites des Golden Knights. Le centre du Canadien n’avait réussi que deux buts en 36 matchs avant son explosion à Vegas.

Le centre des Golden Knights Brandon Pirri, qui disputait seulement son deuxième match dans la Ligue nationale cette saison, a marqué deux des trois buts des siens. Il en avait également inscrit trois l’an dernier, à ses deux seuls duels dans le circuit Bettman.

Jonathan Marchessault a aussi touché la cible pour les Golden Knights (20-15-3), qui avaient gagné leurs six matchs précédents à domicile. Dans la défaite, Marc-André Fleury a repoussé 43 lancers.

Le dernier mot au Canadien

Danault a donné le ton à la rencontre en ouvrant la marque après seulement 3 min 40 s de jeu, concluant un bel échange en entrée de zone avec Tatar et Gallagher.
Fleury a gardé les siens dans le coup lors du reste de la période, frustrant notamment Artturi Lehkonen et Byron en échappée.

Dominés jusque-là, les Golden Knights ont trouvé le moyen de rentrer au vestiaire avec une égalité de 1-1 grâce à Pirri.

Marchessault a placé les Golden Knights en avant après 4 min 52 s de jeu en deuxième période. Le tir de la pointe de Brayden McNabb a atteint un joueur devant le filet et Marchessault a récupéré le disque avant de battre Price, qui n’a pas été en mesure de suivre le jeu en raison de la circulation devant lui.

Danault a toutefois répliqué trois minutes plus tard, déviant un tir de la pointe de Jordie Benn. Danault a touché au disque tout juste à la limite de la hauteur permise et, après révision vidéo, les arbitres ont accordé le but. Les angles sur les reprises ne permettaient pas de conclure hors de tout doute que le but devait être refusé.

Pirri a relancé les Golden Knights en avant avant la fin du deuxième vingt, quand il a pu se présenter seul devant Price, qu’il a battu d’un tir entre les jambières.

Byron a obtenu une occasion en or de créer l’égalité avant la fin de la période, mais sa déviation sur un tir-passe de Mike Reilly est passée à travers la zone du gardien sans franchir la ligne des buts.

Danault a finalement créé l’égalité avec moins de 90 secondes à faire, après que Price eut été remplacé par un attaquant supplémentaire. Byron a ensuite tranché en prolongation en glissant la rondelle entre les jambes de Fleury, bien servi par Domi.

Le défenseur David Schlemko et l’attaquant Charles Hudon avaient été exclus de la formation du Tricolore au profit de Brett Kulak et Nicolas Deslauriers.

Max Pacioretty était absent du côté des Golden Knights en raison d’une blessure subie lundi, face aux Blue Jackets de Columbus.

Le Canadien jouera son prochain match vendredi, quand il rendra visite aux Panthers de la Floride.

Ottawa unveils funding for poultry and egg farmers hurt by free-trade deals

Canadian egg and poultry farmers who’ve lost domestic market share due to two recent free-trade agreements will soon have access to $691 million in federal cash, Canada’s agriculture minister announced Saturday.

Marie-Claude Bibeau shared details of the long-awaited funds in a virtual news conference.

“Today we position our young farmers for growth and success tomorrow,” she said.

The money follows a previously announced $1.75 billion for the dairy sector linked to free-trade deals with Europe and countries on the Pacific Rim, one that came into effect in 2017 and the other in 2018.

The dairy sector funds were to flow over eight years, and the first $345 million payment was sent out last year.

But on Saturday, Bibeau announced a schedule for the remaining payments that will see the money flow over three years — beginning with $468 million in 2020-21, $469 million in 2021-22 and $468 million in 2022-23.

Bibeau said the most recently announced funds for dairy farmers amount to an average farm of 80 cows receiving a direct payment of $38,000 in the first year.

Payments based on formulas

David Wiens, vice-president of the Dairy Farmers of Canada, said the money will help farms make investments for the future.

“I think particularly for the younger farmers who have really struggled since these agreements have been ratified, they can actually now see opportunities, how they can continue to make those investments on the farm so that they can continue on,” he said.

Tinseltown: Where 50-year-old ‘tough guys’ become youngsters again

Audy Czigler wears glitter like a Pennsylvania miner wears coal dust. It’s on his face and hands, in his hair and on his clothing. It’s an occupational hazard that he says he just can’t get rid of.

And when he’s sifting through job applications from people wanting to work at his Tinseltown Christmas Emporium on Somerset Street W. in Hintonburg, the glitter is a consideration. For he’s not looking for people who can simply endure it; no, he’s screening for people who revel and carouse in glitter, for those for whom the 10,000th playing of I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus is as refreshing as the first, for those who believe that the 12 days of Christmas last 365 days a year. The believers.

Sure, he has heard the voices of skeptical passersby on the sidewalk outside his shop, especially in the summer months when visions of sugarplums have receded from many people’s minds.

“I hear them out there a few times a day,” he says, “wondering how a Christmas store can possibly survive year-round.

“I want to go out and tell them,” he adds, but his voice trails off as a customer approaches and asks about an ornament she saw there recently, of a red cardinal in a white heart. Where is it?

There’s scant room for sidewalk skeptics now, crowded out by the dozens of shoppers who, since October, have regularly lined up outside the store, patiently biding their time (and flocks) as pandemic-induced regulations limit the shop to 18 customers at a time.

Once inside, visitors will be forgiven for not first noticing the glitter, or even the rendition of Baby, It’s Cold Outside playing on the speakers. For there’s no specific “first thing” you notice. The first thing you notice is EVERYTHING — a floor-to-ceiling cornucopia of festivity, reminiscent perhaps of how the blind man in the Gospel of John may have felt when Jesus rubbed spit and mud in his eyes and gave him sight for the first time.
