Apocolypse in Canadiens land.

I'm on deadline for another story right now — but this is apocalyptic!

Canadiens GM Bob Gainey is keeping struggling forward Alexei Kovalev in Montreal for the team's two-game roadtrip to Washington and Pittsburgh.

Nope, no injury. They literally think he's playing so bad that they would rather him just stay home.

Gainey has not denied that he would trade Kovalev before the March 4 trade doomsday. But its certainly a random move if there's no trade intentions.

The second sign of the apocalypse is the Canadiens sent Sergei Kostitsyn to HAMILTON!? What is going on. Greg Stewart will replace him in the lineup in the motherclub.

I'd say Gainey is near pulling the trigger on some sort of deal.
