Liveblog: Undefeated – and unscored on – in the St. Denis era

homeswthome

A dominant performance against Carolina, which looked gosh-awful.

Improvised forward lines and a patchwork D blew the Hurricanes away.

    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.

  3. Habsolutely says:

    Nice to see Subbie get his swagger back.

  4. JD_ says:

    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.

  5. JasonM says:

    What a filthy goal celebration.

  6. HabCez says:

    Nice wrister!
    See Subby.. dont need a golf swing.. to score goals!

    Also thumbs up for our youth Defence corp.. they doing fine at the moment!!

  7. savethepuck says:

    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.

    FFS, if you just got called for icing, don’t fire a bullet pass at your guy at your own blue line.

  10. cuzzie says:

    Gomez is playing like he doesn’t want to drive a Molson truck.

    Stay Thirsty My Friends!

  11. Chuck says:

    Subban with the monkey off his back. Either Price or Gomez is next.

  12. JIMVINNY says:

    Just an innocent looking snap shot. PK, you don’t always need that huge wind-up.

  13. Gardenhose says:

    PK!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. 24moreCups says:

    PK with his first!!!!!! ATTABOYYYYY!!!!

  15. Bill says:

    PK!! … with the wrister, hmmm.

  16. Chuck says:

    You’d figure that a guy who hasn’t scored since February would at least force the goalie to make a save.

  17. Bill says:

    @Mrs. Price

    Gomez is DUE!! He’s a lock to score tonight.

  18. Marc10 says:

    I’m liking the Eller/Gomer dynamic duo.

    Come on guys.

  19. MrsPrice says:

    How many points has Gomez scored this season…? Like one?

  20. JIMVINNY says:

    Please, explain to me how the hell that isn’t a roughing penalty.

  21. MrsPrice says:

    yay 2nd perioddddd

  22. eric says:

    I like the idea of honoring the number. When that special player comes along let them wear one of the honored numbers

  23. Bill says:

    Don’t know if anyone already posted this so … dare to dream …

    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”?

  25. savethepuck says:

    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.

    “They don’t hang Conference Championship Banners from the rafters here”
    Carey Price

  26. thebonscott says:

    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.

  27. habbernack says:

    It’s protect the lead time

    ability is what you’re capable of doing.
    attitude determines how you do it

  28. aversglay says:

    Calling it now: Price gets Gordie Howe tonight.

  29. Feraco says:

    Any ideas on a website to stream the game lads?

  30. kempie says:

    Miller & Ferraro must have done 7 or 8 minutes on who wears the highest numbers and why. Nice play-by-play guys.

  31. HabinBurlington says:

    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.

  32. Chuck says:

    Good distribution of ice time among the defensemen in that period.

  33. Gardenhose says:

    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.

    • Bob_Sacamano says:

      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.

  34. HabFanSince72 says:

    Did we trade Gomez?

  35. habs_1993 says:

    Habs sign Gallagher to entry level deal

  36. Danno says:

    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

  38. twocents says:

    The future is now.

    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

    The future is now.

  39. Bob_Sacamano says:

    Good period. I hope Eric Staal reaches the -20 mark this game.

  40. Bill says:

    Carolina with four shots against THIS defence corps?

    Total domination.

  41. JIMVINNY says:

    You can tell that Cole is really giving it tonight. he wants to show the Canes why he was worth the extra year.

  42. EricMelvin says:

    St-Denis’ name looks like this on TSN: Fr��D��Ric St-Denis. What are they trying to say?

  43. Bill says:

    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?

  44. Marc10 says:

    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…

  45. Chuck says:

    PK’s gotta stop making himself look so guilty. Complain AFTER the whistle goes.

  46. JIMVINNY says:

    That was a very intelligent non-call by the officials. I’m impressed.

  47. samTHEman says:

    So now Martin plays Cole on the point…

    That looked like it was never going to make it before Ward got across.

  49. 24moreCups says:

    Nice a Power Play goal!!!!! Love that shot by Weber!

  50. Habsolutely says:

    nice positioning on that PP. thank gawd they’ve been working on that.

  54. JIMVINNY says:

    Paloosh is a PP factory. Maybe he’s just not very strong on his skates.

  55. JohnnyBEast says:

    At least Palushaj is good at drawing penalties

  56. cuzzie says:

    Emelin. The Eliminator.

    Stay Thirsty My Friends!

  57. JasonM says:

    Can we refuse the PP? We’re playing good.

  58. twocents says:

    Man, Gomez effectiveness has even regressed since last year.
    He is looking more and more lost.

    • Bugs says:

      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.

      Back from the Brink’s boasts L. B. Potter, esq.

  59. Habsolutely says:

    Bell center crowd just forgot what it’s like to have a player that actually checks.

    • Bugs says:

      Wasting their time thinking about our trips to the playoffs last few years, I reckon. It IS a mystery.
      Bah, people are dummies.

      Back from the Brink’s boasts L. B. Potter, esq.

  60. Chuck says:

    Gomez with another of his patented passes into the slot… to the other team.

    *pulls hair out*

  61. JasonM says:

    This is a time to shine for Emelin, playing good hockey thus far this game.

    • Marc10 says:

      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…)

  62. habbernack says:

    Emilin playing a good hitting game

    ability is what you’re capable of doing.
    attitude determines how you do it

  63. Habsolutely says:

    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….”

  64. JD_ says:

    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.

  65. Old Bald Bird says:

    Geez Mike. Can we stop with this Forbidden crap already?

  66. Castor says:

    Hey Boone
    Minor quibble. I love the comments but could you add what’s happening? Eg. “Wow! Price assist? 1-0 habs”
    Or
    “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.

  67. cuzzie says:

    Remember when Dryden got his first assist, he got a standing ovation.

    Stay Thirsty My Friends!

  68. RGM says:

    With the assist on the goal, Price is now tied with Gomez in points.

    THAT’S IT! I’ve had enough of this St Denis guy. Bench him!

  70. NLhabsfan says:

    Bum Price????

  71. JIMVINNY says:

    That’s not a bad penalty to take by the youngster. When your D partner trips himself, stuff kind of goes all to hell.

  72. Danno says:

    Now if only that bum Price could score a few goals that would be nice
