BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Shea Weber didnt have to turn far to get the lowdown on Montreal upon learning he had been traded to the Canadiens.Standing immediately next to Weber was good friend and former Canadiens defenseman Josh Gorges, who was staring at his phone in disbelief. The two had just finished a boating excursion with their sons in Kelowna, British Columbia, and left their phones in the car when the blockbuster trade that sent P.K. Subban to Nashville was completed on June 29.We parked the boat and grabbed our phones and both were blown up by calls and messages, recalled Gorges, who now plays for the Sabres. It was kind of comical, to be honest with you.Once the shock wore off, Gorges told Weber what to expect in making the switch from relative anonymity in Music City to Montreal, one of the NHLs most passionate hockey markets.Youll be under the microscope, Gorges said. People are going to know everything thats going on.Gorges also knew that if anyone could handle the added attention, it was Weber, an 11-year NHL veteran and six-year captain of the Predators.He kind of just makes people around him follow him, Gorges said. Hes got this intimidating presence to him where if you arent going as hard as he is, you better watch out.Though both are elite NHL defensemen in their own regard, Weber and Subban are polar opposites in personality and styles of play.The Predators gave up toughness but got younger by adding a 27-year-old play-maker.For Montreal, the trade made sense for a variety of reasons.Subban was the Canadiens most popular player and highly regarded for his charitable work, but his defensive lapses and outgoing personality didnt exactly fit coach Michel Therriens blue-collar philosophy or preferred leadership style.The 31-year Weber is a big-bodied player who is sound defensively and adds offense with a blistering shot. Just as important is Webers no-nonsense approach.Hes got some maturity, hes got some experience. Hes a true leader, Therrien said. And weve got some young kids who are going to learn to become pros because this guy is all business.That wasnt always the case with Subban, who drew attention to himself through his on-ice celebrations or off-ice run-ins with celebrity.Weber, by comparison, is an introvert. Shortly before Montreals season-opening 4-1 win at Buffalo last week, Weber wasnt yet ready to assess the differences between Montreal and Nashville.Ive only been here a couple of weeks so its tough to tell, Weber said. Im going to prepare the same way I have over my career and try to be the same player and the same guy they brought me in here to be.Captain Max Pacioretty has already noticed a difference.Ive seen it from the second he walked into the locker room. He has a presence, Pacioretty said. Every team is looking to improve their locker room and making sure they have the right guys off the ice. Ours is just magnified because of the market we play in.POPULAR PREDATORSubban is already making a splash in Nashville, where he will be featured in a Bridgestone Tire national ad campaign. On Sunday, Subban turns his attention to the NFL as the Honorary 12th Titan for Tennessees home game against the Indianapolis Colts.CATCHING UP WITH CARPENTERWith his three kids now out of high school, former NHL star Bobby Carpenter is considering a return to coaching.Though nothings firm, Carpenter expects to start at the American Hockey League ranks to re-familiarize himself with the job. Carpenter had 320 goals and 728 points in 1,178 career games over 21 NHL seasons split over six teams, including his final six in New Jersey, where he won a Stanley Cup in 1995. After retiring in 1999, he won two more Cups as a Devils assistant coach.Carpenter was in Buffalo recently to watch his daughter, Alexandra, make her National Womens Hockey League debut with the Boston Pride.At Boston College, Alexandra Carpenter was college hockeys top player in 2014-15, and she was a member of the U.S. team that won a silver medal at the Sochi Games. She already has four goals and five points in five games for the Pride.This is entertaining, Carpenter said of the second-year league during Bostons eventual 4-1 win over the Buffalo Beauts.Before the game, Beauts defenseman Harrison Browne announced he identified as male in becoming the leagues first transgender player.I dont have any problems with any of that at all. It just makes everything more interesting, Carpenter said of Browne. Its such an open world.BEHIND THE MASKWashington Capitals goalie Braden Holtby raised more than $20,000 for charity in auctioning off his Team Canada World Cup of Hockey mask, the National Hockey League Players Association announced. The money will go toward two of Canadian rocker Gord Downies charitable foundations. Downie, The Tragically Hip frontman, is being treated for a brain tumor.MILESTONE WATCHBlackhawks forward Marian Hossa scored his 500th goal and 1,093th point in his 1,240th career game in a 7-4 win over Philadelphia on Tuesday night.LEADERSPoints, Brent Burns (San Jose), 8; Goals, Vladimir Tarasenko (St. Louis), David Pastrnak (Boston), Richard Panik (Chicago) and Auston Matthews (Toronto), 4; Power-play points, Ryan Johansen (Nashville) and Rasmus Ristolainen (Buffalo), 4; Penalty minutes, Jonathan Ericsson (Detroit), 24.GAME OF THE WEEKThe San Jose Sharks travel to Pittsburgh on Thursday in a rematch of last seasons Stanley Cup Final, which the Penguins won in six games.

"Its about time," St-Pierre told reporters at a promotional event in Montreal on Friday. "I think its a good thing. MARTINSVILLE, Va. -- Jimmie Johnson is on to NASCARs championship race, which means Joe Gibbs Racing wont pull off a clean sweep of the final four.Johnsons win Sunday at Martinsville Speedway clinched him a spot in the title-deciding Nov. 20 race at Homestead-Miami Speedway . With only three slots remaining, the jockeying for a shot at the championship could quickly turn cutthroat.Theres so much on the line, and only two races remaining to set the field. That means the teamwork that has worked so well for JGR this year may quickly be abandoned as every driver races with their own agenda.Were in a team business, but were also in a business to win for our sponsors and ourselves, said JGR driver Denny Hamlin.I think at the end, you have to do whats best for yourself.The crack started to show at JGR immediately after Johnson collected his ninth career victory at Martinsville . A tire problem had already dropped JGR driver Carl Edwards to last in the Chase field, but Hamlin, Matt Kenseth and Kyle Busch had cars capable of winning.But as the JGR cars ran nose-to-tail in the closing laps, Brad Keselowski slipped past them and grabbed second-place behind Johnson.Hamlin, Matt Kenseth and Kyle Busch are inside the top-four as the series heads to Texas Motor Speedway. But all was not well in the Gibbs camp after the race.Busch felt Hamlin finished the highest by holding up Kenseth and Busch in the waning laps. Although the teammates worked well together on restarts, Busch felt that Hamlin not getting out of the way allowed Johnson to win and Keselowski to finish second.We work so good together that we just gave the win to (Johnson). So, JGR all the way, Busch said. At the end, you had the slowest Gibbs car holding up the rest of the line, and all we did was let somebody else from another organization pass us and go up there and chase down (Johnson).Hamlin disputed Buschs view.I may have held those guys up for a little bit of that final run, but definitely dont think I was holding anyoone up at the end, for sure, Hamlin said.ddddddddddddThere have been times this season that JGR was the most dominant organization in the garage, and as they advanced all four Toyotas into this round of eight of NASCARs playoffs, it became a very real possibility they would roll into the final four. Of course, the odds were against a sweep. Johnson made it official.The driver in the most trouble is clearly Edwards, who had a strong car until a tire issue sent him hard into the wall. He had to go to the garage for repairs, finished 36th and is last in the Chase standings.Edwards said Goodyear officials told him the tire problem was related to a belt failure.Thats really big of them to say, `Hey, theres nothing you could have done about it, Edwards said. We had a really good race going and sometimes thats just what happens in racing. Now we just go to Texas and try to win there and Phoenix -- we could win at either one of those race tracks.Only problem? Johnson has won the last four November races at Texas Motor Speedway, and Kevin Harvick has won six of the last eight races at Phoenix International Speedway.Harvick likely needs another win there to make the finale after a rough day at Martinsville for Stewart-Haas Racing .Harvick and Kurt Busch finished 20th and 22nd and are both in the bottom half of the Chase standings. Danica Patrick and Tony Stewart, the two SHR drivers not in the Chase, finished 24th and 26th.We were slow all weekend, said Harvick. We could just never get the handle on it.Thats not going to cut it the next two weeks, where Johnson plans to race to win even though hes already set for Homestead.The big takeaway for us over these next two weeks could be momentum, Johnson said. If we can run up front or win again, I mean, thats just huge momentum for the team. Thats the big thing we have that could work for us going to Homestead.
