#ICYMI: Jolin-Barrette's rough week continues, metro flood, Time Out Market open

Montreal looked a little like Venice on Thursday morning.

If you’re driving on Highway 20, don’t count on the Turcot Interchange to get you onto southbound Highway 15 this weekend. Access will be shut down starting Friday at 11:59 p.m. and will only reopen Monday at 5 a.m. Full report here.

Chinese video-game publisher NetEase Inc. is looking to hire dozens of developers locally in the coming months after opening its first Montreal studio. Full story here.

When the announcement is made at 8 a.m., and even gets the attention of Montreal Mayor Valérie Plante 30 minutes later, the desired effect has been created.

The Washington Capitals’ Alex Ovechkin is a Russian freak of nature on skates.

Heading into Thursday’s games, Ovechkin was tied with the Toronto Maple Leafs’ Auston Matthews for third in the NHL with 13 goals. The only two players who had scored more were the Boston Bruins’ David Pastrnak (16) and the Edmonton Oilers’ Leon Draisaitl (15). Full story here.
