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


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

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

    Eller has a lot left to learn.

  2. punkster says:

    Oh crap, we don’t get to hear from Retro Mikey tonight. Not after a win. And Everlasting1 won’t dare show up after that disgusting hit last night. Man, this place is going to the dogs.

    Good confidence builder for them.

  5. Shane1313 says:

    AH Beautiful.
    Throw 5 of 6 kid D-men out there and we’ll be fine. The team will always have its ups and downs but this is what I expected from them. They are capable. Looks like we have a lot of depth on D. Looks what we have the tools do well. Good win!

  6. Mothstoflame says:

    cant take the smile off my face for carey. Hey played his game the whole game. good job boys.

  7. Bugs says:

    ‘Bout time for that shut-out.
    No one deserves it more than me.

  8. Danno says:

    Now we can say it!

    Shutout Price!

    Young guns on D get the job done!

    Plan the parade!

    Fun game to watch Carey gets his 1st shutout and PK gets his 1st goal!

  10. Bill says:

    WHAT?? That is one WEAK roughing call.

  11. JIMVINNY says:

    That’s BS. at the end of a 4-0 game, you have to call that both ways.

  12. doogie says:

    Let me get this straight again, Gomer’s a Mexican from Alaska? And we’re asking him to score goals? Pretty sure he’s heading to Hamilton soon.

  13. Captain aHab says:

    Your existence is a never ending pit of sorrow isn’t it? They are winning. Weird….I was responding to a post that disappeared.

  14. habturner says:

    I hope Price doesn’t change his mask anymore this year

  15. JIMVINNY says:

    Brent spins away from a hit and gets his legs wiped out because of it. And this makes him upset, I guess. That, or getting embarrassed in every aspect of the hockey game…

  16. Captain aHab says:

    So I came in late….have they been that dominant?

  17. Bill says:

    So many good stories in this one, I’m going with Emelin though. He is to the Habs D what Cole has been to the offence: exactly what’s been missing.

  18. HardHabits says:

    Who scores first this season, Nogoalainen or Gomiss?

    • Hab-Q says:

      even at 9 min. a game TOI, I’d take Nogoal

  19. Danno says:

    Did Martin mumble something under his breath?


    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  20. MrsPrice says:

    LOL Cole’s troll face!!

    The Price is Right

  21. Bill says:

    Habs getting outshot 10-3 in the third … someone has to say it.

  22. JohnnyBEast says:

    Yahoo Sports has Emelin at 7 hits and 7 blocked shots, not a bad night

  23. Stev.R says:

    Is there a french word that would suitably replace ‘Ole’

  24. ZimHabwe says:

    Hey…..if Eric Staal is doing this badly with a +/- of -18 with Carolina, are you guys thinking what I’m thinking? Gomez for Staal? …….No? OK.

    Just a random thought.

  25. HardHabits says:

    This is boring. 😛

  26. Bill says:

    Guess I have to give JM credit for this overpowering game on offence and defence by a Habs team that is ridiculously riddled with injuries. And I won’t even subtly undercut it by mentioning how crappy Carolina are.

    Palushaj seems to have a touch of Pouliotitis

    This is called get gomez a goal time

  29. pmaraw says:

    LOL @ COLE!!!

  30. HardHabits says:

    The crowd needs to work on their chant.

    It’s “Sys-tem. Sys-tem”

  31. MrsPrice says:

    always too many men. That’s what I have in common with the habs…jk lol

    The Price is Right

  32. Mavid says:

    Ray Farrero just called him Jacques Demers….yikes

    second place is just the first loser

  33. habsfaninboston says:

    We were overdue for the “too many men” penalty.

  34. Danno says:

    Not again


    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  35. Bill says:

    Gleason sold that big time, but it’s still scary to see a stick go that close to an eye.

    Full Breezer 4 Life

  36. Danno says:

    Give him an Oscar for selling that one


    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  37. twocents says:

    Emelin ain’t no Gill in the mobility department.

  38. HardHabits says:

    I see the Boone reverse jinx is alive and well.

  39. duffy says:

    Lets hope Martin doesn’t go into his we have enough goals protect the lead third period of hockey like he normally does.He should have learned by now it does not work.

  40. HardHabits says:

    Who is this team and what have they done with the Montreal Canadiens?

    • Danno says:

      The regulars have been kidnapped and the team’s been taken over by talented children


      “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  41. habsfan0 says:

    Now watch the Habs lay back in the 3rd,and Carolina will pop a couple of quick ones.

  42. pmaraw says:

    hate to be a stick in the mud, but its just carolina…

    • Danno says:

      Yes but Cam Ward is usually Kryptonite to the Habs

      Tonight, not so much


      “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

      • pmaraw says:

        true enough, seems most games we play vs top tier goaltending havent gone well this year. mind you, most of those games, they hit a few posts, had a few silly bounces and could’ve went the other way. I like this team we got this year a lot and they’re deffinately proving they dont deserve to be 1 slot ahead of carolina in the standings.

  43. HabFanSince72 says:

    Carolina’s roster looks horrible. The only remotely good players are Staal, Skinner and Ward, and two of them are slumping. The rest of the team is journeymen or worse.

  44. topher5468 says:

    TSN talking about Gomez’ shooting %, Yea its not good. Hey Gomer, Sean Avery has 2 now, just sayin

    “It’s not an obsession, It’s a way of life..”

  45. Habbu says:

    Let’s put a package together for Staal, reunite him with Cole; and voila we are a contender rather than a pretender.

    • Bugs says:

      Think they’ll take Gomie?
      Or do you plan to kidnap Staal outright, fake his death, brainwash him into a different identity, facial reconstruction, different name, different papers and put him in the lineup THAT way?
      Cuz otherwise, you gotta pay for the guy. The sweetest deal in the the world still has take another 7mil.
      That means Gomie. Think they’ll take Gomie?
      In which case, I vote yes.

  46. HabsFan_Miramichi says:

    Hey they signed Gallagher to a deal, good stuff PG

    Kenneth A Fraser

  47. Bugs says:

    This would be our first rout of the season.
    And against the friggin Caners (whom I hate; let that be clear), it only makes the occasion extra-schmextra special, y’all.
    What do they got, 6 shots on net?
    THAT’S what I’m talkin about, yo.

    Gomez edges ahead of Price in a fierce battle for the points race

    Ok all together now…

  50. kempie says:

    Wow. Complete domination. Canes are jaw-dropping awful.
    You all know what comes next: Cue The System™.

    I remember a game last year against this team that went pretty much the same way. That was Markov’s last.

  51. JasonM says:

    I know Carolina was having problems but geez.

  52. MrsPrice says:

    This is just going too well!!Yay

    The Price is Right

  53. twilighthours says:

    Palusaj just might be an NHLer yet. Love what yemelin is bringing tonite.

  54. HabFanSince72 says:

    The Canes actually gave Tomas Kaberle $4.25M/yr for three years.


  55. punkster says:

    Gomez! A point!

    And you guys said he’d never live up to his contract.

    ***Subbang Baby!!!***

  56. JD_ says:

    What a Travisty!

    “Snipes” Moen scores whenever he wants from wherever he wants.

  57. Danno says:

    Another classic goal for the Golden Hands of Moen highlight reel


    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

    • Marc10 says:

      Mighty Duck Moen is in da house! Back breaker!

      We’ve been waiting for this guy for a while and he’s here! Dare we hope for 10+ goals from Mr Moen?

      Hell ya!

  58. 24moreCups says:

    Holy Moen!

  59. NLhabsfan says:

    Only a matter of time!!!!

    Sitting in on it yet?

    They lost me 2 quarts of rum, better make it up next year with a cup!

  62. NLhabsfan says:

    Like a shooting gallery out there.

  63. JIMVINNY says:

    All things considered, Ward is playing really well.

  64. aversglay says:

    Carolina looking much more dangerous the last few minutes. Less so the thirty before that.

  65. Danno says:

    Paloosh finding his groove


    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  66. JD_ says:

    The Hurries are startin’ to take chances.

    I expect the Habs will have a few odd-man rushes before the period’s over.

  67. Bugs says:

    Nuke Paloosh!

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

  68. JIMVINNY says:

    that puck hit staal right on the stick, with a wide open net. And he just watched it hit his stick and go through his legs. Something is wrong with him.

  69. Mavid says:

    a little off topic but I just finished the book “they call me Killer” about the Ottawa 67 coach Brian Kilrea what a great book, what an interesting man…i highly recommend it

    second place is just the first loser

  70. Psycho29 says:

    Ok….who are you guys…..and what have you done with the usual complainers in here???? 🙂

  71. Bugs says:

    That Dezzy is ok in my estimation.

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

  72. NLhabsfan says:

    Frustration starting to show on the Cains.

    Emelin shoving guys around … knows JM can’t bench him tonight, haha.
