Habs not happy with Gaustad's trash talk

The Montreal Canadiens are chafed that Sabres center Paul Gaustad allegedly said, "Where's Chara?" in the direction of Max Pacioretty following Patrick Kaleta's empty-net goal late in the third period of Tuesday's 3-1 Buffalo victory. The quip, of course, is in reference to the ghoulish hit Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara put on Pacioretty last season that resulted in a broken neck.

"He's got a big mouth and he likes to run it," Habs goalie Carey Price said of Gaustad. "What can you do? Can't worry about what he's got to say. He doesn't do much out there."

For one night, at least, Gaustad did as he put together his first three-point game since December 9, 2010. Will be interesting to see what kind of response Gaustad has this morning prior to the Sabres' game against the Rangers. Some Montreal players apparently asked him where he was when Ryan Miller got plowed in November by Milan Lucic. Fair comeback.

The Chara-Pacioreetty play is seen below, followed by clips from the Habs' locker room Tuesday from Price (who starts in on Gaustad at the :55 mark) and winger Matthew Darche. Those clips are from the Montreal Gazette.
