A dominant performance against Carolina, which looked gosh-awful.
Improvised forward lines and a patchwork D blew the Hurricanes away.
See what I mean? Pages turn every 3 minutes.
What up wit dat? Dat ain’t no way for civilized man to live, pete’ssakes.
Back from the Brink’s boasts L. B. Potter, esq.
Deal with the ephemerality. All our comments are is dust in the wind.
Full Breezer 4 Life
Not for the government they ain’t.
If they have easy access, so should we.
Keep the foot down boys. Let’s roll that truck right over the Canes.
Come on Gomer. Tonight is da night, sti. Get ‘er done. Come on Eller. Make it happen.
Nice to see Subbie get his swagger back.
Excellent sustained puck possession by the Habs. The Canes are just not competin’, so far. Maurice better find a way to conjure his inner Ruff.
Think Soobs caught Ward on the off-beat.
I had a jazz music video somewhere for that…hang on a sec…
What a filthy goal celebration.
Hahaha that’s just PK being PK … expect criticism on Coach’s Corner.
Yeah , he should do the OV hot stick routine
See Subby.. dont need a golf swing.. to score goals!
Also thumbs up for our youth Defence corp.. they doing fine at the moment!!
Who on here would of thought that in game 18 we’d be hearing that PK Subban just got his first goal of the year? He’s got some inportant assists the last few games tho.
“They don’t hang Conference Championship Banners from the rafters here”
The future is now.
FFS, if you just got called for icing, don’t fire a bullet pass at your guy at your own blue line.
Gomez is playing like he doesn’t want to drive a Molson truck.
Stay Thirsty My Friends!
Subban with the monkey off his back. Either Price or Gomez is next.
PK is all over Skinner tonight
Just an innocent looking snap shot. PK, you don’t always need that huge wind-up.
PK with his first!!!!!! ATTABOYYYYY!!!!
PK!! … with the wrister, hmmm.
You’d figure that a guy who hasn’t scored since February would at least force the goalie to make a save.
Oh come on. He’s a nice fellow and he skates around a lot.
Believe me, I feel for the guy and hope that he can turn things around. But unfortunately he’s not doing a lot to help himself.
Gomez is DUE!! He’s a lock to score tonight.
what does “due” mean…..? Legit question sorry for being ignorant
Like he hasn’t scored in something like five years, so law of averages suggests he’s “due to score”. But I was being sarcastic though.
he’s been due for three seasons now.
The way he’s going, Gomez couldn’t score with a fistfull of $100’s at Wanda’s.
As in past his due date, or expected to score sometime this season?
aha. thank you kind citizen and I agree.
I’m liking the Eller/Gomer dynamic duo.
Come on guys.
How many points has Gomez scored this season…? Like one?
tied with price
Please, explain to me how the hell that isn’t a roughing penalty.
yay 2nd perioddddd
I like the idea of honoring the number. When that special player comes along let them wear one of the honored numbers
‘Honouring’ numbers is like hanging conference champion banners.
Don’t know if anyone already posted this so … dare to dream …
This would make my life. I would go to his retirement party just for kicks. Wonder what he would wear…
Ate dinner, turned on the tv, found out the Habs have a 2-0 lead?
Didn’t someone once say “2-0 is the worst lead in Habs hockey”?
Our inexperienced D not looking too bad so far. Don’t want to jinx it tho. On the TSN ticker it just showed Mtl signed Brendan Gallagher to a 3 year deal today, I assume it’s similar to the Tinordi deal, but I haven’t seen anything on here.
that makes carey price tied with gomez for points at 1 assist, if gomez where any kid of a man he would retire, or demote himself. really the habs are at a detriment when he is on the ice. i don’t know what they are going to do with him but it is gonna have to be something, he won’t score 7 goals this year.
That’s good news.
I thought so
It’s protect the lead time
ability is what you’re capable of doing.
attitude determines how you do it
Calling it now: Price gets Gordie Howe tonight.
Who is he going to beat up?
Any ideas on a website to stream the game lads?
Molson Ex mon ami
Thank you very much!!!!
Miller & Ferraro must have done 7 or 8 minutes on who wears the highest numbers and why. Nice play-by-play guys.
Well I think I know which Jersey with a name and number I want to buy, Mr. Emelin, I love the way this guy plays. But I won’t jinx him yet, afterall Kjell Dahlin did nothing after I bought one with his name on it.
Good distribution of ice time among the defensemen in that period.
So what do you do on defense when everyone is healthy (Excluding Campoli unless he’s coming back soon)? No pairings nessesary, just the top 6…
Markov, Gorges, Subban, Gill, Weber and Emelin?
That hit by Emelin on Tlusty was B E A Utiful, reminds me of the days when Komi would line em up.
I´d still like to get a big, physical dman in and play him with Markov, Gorges, Subban, Weber and Emelin. Well, we all know JM is not going to scratch Spacek or Gill.
Did we trade Gomez?
Yep. its official
Reverse the curse…
“Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”
Habs sign Gallagher to entry level deal
Momentum is with the Habs.
Keep the pedal to the metal and don’t let up for 60 minutes.
I love how Cammi keeps a straight face after a goal – almost a deep frown as he gives props to the bench. Typical italian
It’s P.K. Tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiime
Trade Gionta, demote Gomez, move one of Gill or Spacek and play these kids, play them lots.
Use the cap space to pick up another good player and let this team play
News flash: they’re playing Carolina! 2 days ago it was the end of the world lmao. Bipolar much?
It’s P.K. Tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiime
You got the wrong guy, pal.
I don’t panic after losses.
I’ve been saying this for a month.
No sweat, there’s a lot of that manic depression stuff around here, it’s easy to mistake someone.
Easy boy, easy now, calm down. Let’s give it another period or two, shall we?
It’s not about this game, Punkster.
The kids have been leading this team the whole season.
That bunch we’re bridge work. We’re at the other side.
I’m not foolin’, I mean this and I’ve been saying it for weeks.
Oh I hear ya. But we still need some of the vets this season.
Pleks, Cammy, Markov, Gorges, one of the two old D, Cole, A. Kost., Moen.
The rest are superflous.
Furthermore, I’ve never suggested something like this before in my life.
I don’t think it would be step back either. We are better team with the youngsters playing more.
Trade Gionta while he still has value.
No UFA to pick up now, and there is a cost to trading.
Sorry, meant to say at the trade deadline, when a loser is shedding salary.
Better. Much better.
Good period. I hope Eric Staal reaches the -20 mark this game.
Carolina with four shots against THIS defence corps?
You can tell that Cole is really giving it tonight. he wants to show the Canes why he was worth the extra year.
St-Denis’ name looks like this on TSN: Fr��D��Ric St-Denis. What are they trying to say?
Cole on the PP … thank God for Jessica Rusnak.
If any of you media guys see her at the game, would you ask her to ask JM when he’s going to scratch Gomez?
Holy crap! We scored on the PP!
Let’s get a 6 goal cushion just so we’re safe for the sit and wait 3rd period collapse…
PK’s gotta stop making himself look so guilty. Complain AFTER the whistle goes.
That was a very intelligent non-call by the officials. I’m impressed.
So now Martin plays Cole on the point…
Hey Count Jacqula, check your stats on Cole now!
He was just on the half-wall, and moved up a little to help Pleks out.
I know. I’m saying now Martin will start using Cole at the point cause he made a nice pass. I’m kidding….or maybe not LOL
That looked like it was never going to make it before Ward got across.
I was thinking that Ward would get it, too.
Nice a Power Play goal!!!!! Love that shot by Weber!
nice positioning on that PP. thank gawd they’ve been working on that.
Et le but!
Le Jeune Weber tir et compte!
Nice to score on the power play..
POWER PLAY GOAl!!!!
Paloosh is a PP factory. Maybe he’s just not very strong on his skates.
At least Palushaj is good at drawing penalties
Emelin. The Eliminator.
If Emelin is the Eliminator, then O’B was Dictator O’Burner.
Big guy who plays small
Can we refuse the PP? We’re playing good.
We got a 2-0 lead, man.
Take the PP and lock it down.
2 free minutes off the board.
Man, Gomez effectiveness has even regressed since last year.
He is looking more and more lost.
How do you get retrograded and benched within a period is what I wanna know, poor bastich…
No! No pity, Bugs. It’s just business. Be strong.
Bell center crowd just forgot what it’s like to have a player that actually checks.
Wasting their time thinking about our trips to the playoffs last few years, I reckon. It IS a mystery.
Bah, people are dummies.
Gomez with another of his patented passes into the slot… to the other team.
*pulls hair out*
This is a time to shine for Emelin, playing good hockey thus far this game.
Yes. Keep hitting Yemmy.
And I’m just going to say it. If we’re going to play Gomer, let’s play him with Eller and give them 18 mins of ice. That’s enough speed to get the job done and Gomer might actually dust off cobwebs playing with a kid who wants it and who is showing creative flare. (And that way Eller will get his much deserved ice time…)
Emilin playing a good hitting game
I can just see Price and his agent during contract negotiations with PG, “Well, Carey has as many points as Gomez, and Gomer makes 7.5 mill so….”
For the 26th best PP in the league, not a whole lot of trouble settin’ up in the D-zone against the 6th best PK, but puttin’ the puck on net is a whole different head of lettuce. Kinda Habby, in a way.
Geez Mike. Can we stop with this Forbidden crap already?
Minor quibble. I love the comments but could you add what’s happening? Eg. “Wow! Price assist? 1-0 habs”
“St Denis makes the score sheet… For tripping”
I only ask because you are my only source for the game sometimes.
Did price let in a bad goal? Did St Denis get an assist?
And so forth. I’d be grateful.
Remember when Dryden got his first assist, he got a standing ovation.
With the assist on the goal, Price is now tied with Gomez in points.
GO HABS GO! 2011-12 is our year!
RGM’s Movember page: http://mobro.co/RGM81
I’m not sure if I should laugh or cry at that fact..
LOL Take your pick.
Yeah, but he’s also played more games.
He does have much more ice time, I will give you that, and he is always on the ice during prime power play time as well.
THAT’S IT! I’ve had enough of this St Denis guy. Bench him!
Did you check the other link I posted for you?
Oops…the second one didn’t appear> Ben Webster…check it later.
The only thing better than hearing that is the habs scoring on the powerplay… and both happened at once. I love Strayhorn.
That’s not a bad penalty to take by the youngster. When your D partner trips himself, stuff kind of goes all to hell.
Now if only that bum Price could score a few goals that would be nice
Seriously, JM won’t let him play forward, holding back young talent again. Fire the Centre Bell maintenance staff!!!!
Gomez said on his return he’d play anywhere except nets “or I’m outta here…” That’s one way to get rid of him.
Great job Carey, keep it up and very soon you’ll have more points than Gomez.
