TORONTO - Internet users in the U.S. are talking today about topics like the Miss U.S.A. pageant, the new "Robin Hood" movie and the NBA playoffs.

And according to Google, they also really want to know about the Montreal Canadiens.

According to Google's daily list of web trends, news about the Montreal Canadiens is one the hottest topics on the web.

The word Canadiens was at one point atop Google's list of hot topics, which tracks the subjects with the most buzz in the news, on Twitter and other social networks.

It was later knocked down the list as searches for Oklahoma City, Big Ten, Miss USA and Kagan picked up.

Other hot topics Tuesday included BP oil leak, Biden, BA strike, Robin Hood and Orlando Magic.

Google does not have a similar list for Canadian users.
