Canadiens spoil Jets party


Not exactly a warm welcome back to the NHL.
Down two starters, the Canadiens romp to a 5-1 win.
Three unanswered goals in the third period broke a tight game open.

After losing Jaro Spacek and Mike Cammalleri in the first period, the undermanned Canadiens rallied with opportunistic scoring.

Every goal was a highlight reel job, including a Travis Moen breakaway.

Before he got hurt, Cammalleri scored the Canadiens’ first goal of the season.

First PP goal was a Yannick Weber laser.

Carey Price made 30 saves. Don Cherry called him the best goaltender in the world … and he coached Gilles Gilbert.

And the PK pitched another shutout … including a 5-on-3.

    Webber being useful!

  2. durocher says:




    thats why weber whould be on the PP

  4. Propwash says:

    Ill take it.

  5. AK_PK_Usay says:


  6. Habifax says:

    look for an even up call now. soft….

  7. Take that you baboons. I hate the Jets, but this is looking like a good rivalry. I want the Nordiques back now lol

  8. durocher says:

    Admittedly, a bad call on Buff — refs are losing this game

  9. Toe Blake says:

    Good call there!

  10. Habitant in Surrey says:

    …’fighting’ is an essential, unavoidable part of the drama of NHL hockey

    Habitant means PASSIONATE HOCKEY

  11. OneTimer says:

    why did PK get a penalty?

  12. Refs should be wearing Jets jerseys tonight, this is ridiculous.

  13. HardHabits says:

    Yep. CBC is saying it. Lay the body. Where have we heard that before.

  14. Jets deserve f&&*ing misery. Gosh look real tough hitting Gionta.

  15. AK_PK_Usay says:

    Funny how PK gets punched and yet he’s sitting, this is pathetic.

  16. Marc10 says:

    Great the refs are putting away their whistles…

    Go PK Go!

  17. Toe Blake says:

    The problem is that the Habs have no effective answer if their opponent decides to step it up physically.

  18. HardHabits says:

    Moen has a future with Battle of the Blades.

  19. WOW! Moen looked like Richard LOL

  20. durocher says:

    Clearly the Jets are trying to get in Price’s kitchen, as we don’t really have big bodies to force ’em out

  21. AK_PK_Usay says:

    And the JM 3rd period with a lead… blehhh

  22. Propwash says:

    Price hurt, don’t be sayin’ stuff like that Boone!

  23. durocher says:

    Subban is hurt, and Glass forces his head down. F Winnipeg!

  24. twilighthours says:

    That goal shouldnt count

  25. durocher says:

    How can MacLean sit in the crease like that?

  26. Stev.R says:

    Only way to score on Price is to sit on his head

  27. WTF?? Goalie didn’t even has his helmet on?!

  28. durocher says:

    Total crap by Antropov, he was mugging Diaz

  29. Marc10 says:

    Give propos to Engqvist (the Swedish Chef) props. He’s done well tonight. He’s got a pretty bland game, but at least he’s trying. Hell, Yemmy, Diaz and Webo are all doing a good job of stepping into the breach. Even Moen’s giving it a good go.

    Now if only our Power Forwards joined the party we could put an end to this little party…

    Go PK Go!

  30. havok says:

    re: Betts
    to all those that were slagging Habs about medical history, they just confirmed that a team does not and cannot have the medical file of player until the player is their property…

  31. Habifax says:

    Cole second last in TOI – 7 mins. Better get this guy going or he may be another Gomez!

  32. originalsix says:

    Cammy gone possibly two weeks per Brian Wilde and his sources at TSN!/BrianWildeCTV/status/123166882378428416

  33. habs001 says:

    too early to tell but maybe diaz,weber and emelin can work for a while till markov comes back…now it may they not work when the playoffs start as the hitting and bruising goes up by several notches…enquist has been okay…maybe we should not use plecks in faceoffs as he is pretty bad in our zone…

  34. HardHabits says:

    Phew. Two weeks is better than two months that’s for sure.

    The Habs are battling. Good to see. My observation is that they are playing smart and physical, as opposed to just playing physical. They’ll need to play smart as they can if at least to limit the injuries that are not completely due to bad luck.

    Nice to see the CBC’s Healy touting the two Habs “studs” in Price and Subban.

  35. holypricehabsman says:

    Give Cole a chance, he needs to adjust, and just because he doesn’t have the speed doesn’t mean he isn’t good. As Habs fans we have to stop turning on players because of a few missed shots! I’m surprised you jackals aren’t tearing Gionta apart for fanning on the puck twice out there

  36. alfieturcotte says:

    Habs need to think about picking up Owen Nolan.


    how much does mxCabe want >??????????????

  38. durocher says:

    Diaz, Emelin have stepped up — I wish I could say the same for Gomer and his line

  39. Sal says:

    Can someone enlighten me. Is it true Habs Mgmt knew that Markov would NOT start the season when they signed him? Or, was the setback a surprise to all ,including Habs Mgmt?

  40. Tharsis says:

    I f!@#ing hate my internet…AT&T Uverse is complete BS…the my bandwidth is supposed to be 6MB but repeated speedtests are showing between 1 and 3 MB…grrrr


    Fate leads the willing, and drags along the reluctant.

  41. Psycho29 says:

    See the yahoos behind Hawerchuk? I wonder who’s minding the trailor park???

    Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

  42. durocher says:

    Two weeks for Cammy… phew. Maybe Palushaj will get a nod to take a spot

  43. Habbu says:

    I wish we could get some facts on the Markhov injury… his career in jeopardy or what?

  44. slapshot777 says:

    Gotta give props to the Habs for playing a good road game. Beautiful goal by Pleks. Yemelin and Diaz so far so good. At least they have some experience so they are not a rookie in the sense of the word.

    To you from failing hands we throw the torch, be yours to hold it high.

  45. Tharsis says:

    wtf,..,where are all the comments


    Fate leads the willing, and drags along the reluctant.

  46. zak says:

    Put AK with plec and cole and Moen back with DD and Darche

  47. Habbu says:

    2 weeks for Cammy says CTV

  48. Habbu says:

    Cole driving to the net….shoots the puck into the corner……how much are they paying this guy again?

  49. Stev.R says:

    Thoughts: Markov is invisible out there. Almost as invisible as Cole. Gorges needs to work on his wristshot. We look a little scattered and I can’t explain what I mean by that

  50. Habifax says:

    What’s the news on spats?????

  51. AK_PK_Usay says:

    I see why JM hates AK, instead of clearing and giving possesion he passed back to our d and so we kept possesion,
    BAD BAD!

  52. Habifax says:

    if they can get out of this period!!


    why is moen on the first line and not AK ? wtf JM? stop being stupid, moen is a 4th liner put AK on top line now!!!!

  54. phillyhab says:

    Good news on cammy! Especially with only 5-6 games in the next 2 weeks.

  55. LL says:

    Maybe losing Campoli and Betts is a blessing in disguise.

    Diaz and Y/E melin looking good. Getting more time.

  56. TOEmastro says:

    2 weeks for the stitches to heal, eh?
    Olé, olé, olé oleé

  57. munch17 says:

    Let’s all rag on Gomez.should have two assists in first period.
    And let’s give up on Cole-afterall it’s almost 5 periods into the year.

  58. topher5468 says:

    Is it me that it doesn’t sound right when Healy praises our players,

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

  59. HardHabits says:

    Diaz was pretty awesome there.

  60. twilighthours says:

    That was a nice play by Diaz, after his terrible giveaway.

  61. Toe Blake says:

    Nice work by Diaz.

  62. savethepuck says:

    Can’t believe how much the CBC announcers are praising Carey, they won’t shut up about him, just like they’re doing now on TSN. I was hearing a lot different in the 2nd game last year.

  63. jo_maka says:

    Diaz FTW !!!:)

  64. Marc10 says:

    Weber on the PP makes all kinds of sense. His shot is good and he’s starting to move like a D man. Way better option than playing Pleks at the point. You need someone with a bit of a canon, non?

    Ah Pleks! What a play on Oduya! Wow!

    “To be irreplaceable, you have to be different”.

    Go PK Go!

  65. AK_PK_Usay says:

    I actually like our new D, yes theyre not big, BUT, theyre all fast, even Emelin is a fast skater

  66. topher5468 says:

    I would trade Gomez for 1/2 a Pleks,

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

  67. jo_maka says:

    Plek is just so underrated 🙂

  68. richmoney says:

    Best all around player for Montreal. Go plecky!

  69. Toe Blake says:

    Nice pass by Moen too.

  70. savethepuck says:

    That was amazing what Plex just did

  71. Propwash says:

    Ooooh yeeeah Plecky!
