    Great game by Budaj, couldn’t have asked for more.

  2. Credit where it’s due: Budaj has been excellent.

  3. Mavid says:

    poor bourque

  4. Bill says:

    I would not trade Subban for Karlsson. Just my opinion.

  5. Rad says:

    Subban taking matters into his own hands. Somebody has to do it.

  6. joedacrabb33 says:

    I think I’d rather play shorthanded then have Campoli and Weber on the ice at the same time and they should scratch Bourque, the guy has no heart

  7. Rad says:

    Here comes the aforementioned 2 points that we don’t need.

  8. Bill says:

    Pacioretty nailing everything in sight, just like Roy at the strip clubs.

    Nice to see even Markov has some fire.

    Crowd recognizing PK’s effort.

  11. Phil C says:

    Did I just hear some boos for Bourque? Clock could be ticking on his time in Montreal.

  12. doogie says:

    With Bourque, Geoffrion and Staubitz, Gauthier is trying to turn “chicken poop” into “chicken salad” and I don’t think it worked.

    * * * * * * *

    Need to get my clubs ready for the golf season since there ain’t gonna be any playoffs!

  13. issie74 says:

    Habs better end this soon … Boone is swearing.


  14. C-Sword says:

    Is it part of the Habs’ strategy to get outshot every single game? I don’t remember when was the last time the whole team deserved to win.

  15. athanor says:

    Those boos were the proper thing. He pulled out of making a play so he wouldn’t get hit.

  16. Rad says:

    Watch the Habs pull out another meaningless win here.

  17. Bill says:

    Subban is such a competitor. His critics can suck it.

  18. shootdapuck says:

    What are the face off stats tonight?

    Must be brutal in favour of NY.

  19. Rad says:

    Markov being chased from behind … scary

  20. Barts says:

    Rene Bourque…another great pickup by the Ghost.

  21. danhabsfan says:

    If the Habs really want to win, then do so in OT or SO

  22. Bill says:

    I can’t handle another loser point. Win: I’m happy. Lose in regulation … I can think about the draft pick. Lose in OT/SO? Just kill me.

  23. danhabsfan says:

    Anyone know the status of Gomez, Diaz and Moen?

  24. HabFanSince72 says:

    Two bad teams out there.

    Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.

  25. Bill says:

    Halak barely misses another shutout, as TBay scores late, but in all fairness, he faced a real barrage tonight: 20 saves!

    DD looks mighty tired tonight

    third world LOL

  28. Mavid says:

  29. Mavid says:

    stupids score

  30. Bill says:

    … Desharnais on the penalty kill … I dunno

  31. HNS says:

    Bourque still looks lost….

  32. Bertuzzi says:

    Bourque is the poor-man’s Kostitsyn.

  33. shootdapuck says:

    First too many men penalty in ages.

    Used to be the norm under the previous regime.

  34. JIMVINNY says:

    i guess this is Randys method of pushing the tank.

  35. Bill says:

    Is that RC’s first too-many-men call??

  36. danhabsfan says:

    Wow… Campoli… can’t believe he made a great play

  37. Phil C says:

    Good for Leblanc, he has some potential and he seems like a good kid.

  38. Rad says:

    Nice backhand by Louie Louia. I’m liking this kid, I think he’s going to be a good NHL player.

  39. Clay says:

    I have to laugh at how excited the fans get after a goal…seriously – at this point of the season?

    ☞ If I agreed with you we’d both be wrong. ☜

  40. Mavid says:

    nice work by PK…..

  41. Habbu says:

    Yes Tavares & Streit were supposed to lead the Islanders to the promised land….

  42. punkster says:

    Louis baby!!!!!!!

    ***Subbang Baby!!!***

  43. Bill says:

    In the good old days, I’d be out on St. Paddy’s Day having a party. Now, I’m a parent, my kid has a hockey game at eight in the morning so no party for me, and the Habs can’t even help me out by being entertaining!

  44. novahab says:

    For all the tanker fans I have a question for you. Look at what the ownership and the GM has done to this team. So how bad will they screw up the draft pick?

  45. issie74 says:

    Anyone who believes the Oilers will trade the first round pick for a defenceman,when they can pick Matt Dumba is falling for a big line and the Oilers are having a good laugh,it is actually being reported on CBC,WHAT A JOKE


  46. HardHabits says:

    You are as good as your record.

  47. habs001 says:

    I am not sure that we will score that much more next year..chances are we will not be able to add an impact forward so we have to hope that gion comes back to his 25 plus season..we may score more on the pp but that may not mean we score the same amount as this year 5 on 5…unless we get a suprise(gallagher?) we probably still be a very middle of the pack team in scoring…i think we need to add another impact d and that would give us a pretty good chance at the playoffs…

  48. HabsBeen says:

    Unfortunately, he’s not worth a top 3 pik alone but I think the Habs should take a chance and trade plukonic and 2 of our prospects for one of the top 3 pics on draft day. yup, plikunoc sucks.

    • _koopy_ says:

      I really hope you’ve spelt his name wrong on purpose. “Plukonic” and “Plikunoc”??????
      You must be joking.

      Edit: I just read some of your other posts; you’re not joking.

  49. shootdapuck says:

    Fighting is allowed in name alone in the NCAA.

  50. Habbu says:

    Starting to believe that maybe this team can’t take it up to the next level. As much as I want them to; this is it……this is as good as they can be…..given their overall skill set. I guess they are a last place team……..having a hard time accepting it…….denial is such a powerful coping tool.

  51. FlyingFrenchie says:

    Stop ragging on the Goalies. Our offense is pitiful. Sure we have a few decent guys. But the majority suck..Plain and simple.
    Can’t pass worth a d-m, and have hands of a stone around the net
    But what the h-ll! This is 2012. The age where mediocrity is not only accepted, but widely embraced by the ownership.
    No wonder why their beer sucks.

  52. Bill says:

    What’s with Glen Healy’s horrible, yellow, bloodshot eyes? Is he moonlighting as an extra on The Walking Dead? He freaks me out, I cannot even look at him.

  53. Clay says:

    Respect to the Pens for their 11th win in a row. That’s quite the accomplishment. And most of them without Sid.

    ☞ If I agreed with you we’d both be wrong. ☜

  54. shootdapuck says:

    Believe it’s the ” UND Fighting Sioux”!

    In the HIO constant search for correctness.

    • Strummer says:

      No fighting allowed in NCAA.

      “It’s just an opinion – I could be wrong”

    • Mondou6 says:

      Actually, there is a huge controversy over that. The alum who donated millions of dollars for the UND hockey rink is adamant that the team retain the nickname, and the Sioux tribe is trying to stop it.

  55. habs001 says:

    How much worse would this team be with any gm from any pro hockey league?..

  56. novahab says:

    I say the boys are all in the dresiing room having a few pops to get ready for the no push in the third. Any media types with their phone camera on taking pictires of the boys getting drunk. I say AK wanted out of Montreal because they couldn’t drink and play hockey like him.

  57. Strummer says:

    For a change of pace you can watch Danny Kristo in action for UND Sioux agianst Denver in their Regional Championship Game
    on The SCORE (it’s in HD as well)
    “It’s just an opinion – I could be wrong”

  58. L Elle says:

    What riveting, exciting, splendid, fantastic, stupendous, out of this world hockey tonight.

    • Mondou6 says:

      Yup. And if you missed last night’s game, you missed a total highlight reel of hockey.

      Ironically, the worse we’ve been playing lately, the more we’re winning.

      Remember early in the year when we dominated some games and lost? Now it’s the opposite.

  59. issie74 says:

    Laffs 1-0 over Sens.are the Sens.tanking too. LOL


  60. novahab says:

    Well the Ilses can set up another ilegal pick and score the third goal to put this away.

  61. habs001 says:

    Draft postion looking better….reality is that todays habs forward lineup with the exception of about 4 forwards is really no better than what a new expansion team could put together…

  62. Captain aHab says:

    30 shots allowed over two periods….to the Hindgrinders no less….

    Avast, me proud beauty! Wanna know why my Roger is so Jolly?

  63. Mondou6 says:

    I’m still trying to figure out how White getting run over without the puck to allow Streit to walk in and score isn’t a penalty.

    • Clay says:

      Struggling cash-strapped American team vs. struggling but extremely rich Canadian team. No brainer in the Bettman NHL.

      ☞ If I agreed with you we’d both be wrong. ☜

  64. novahab says:

    Someone should take a big Toronto Maple Leafs Embem and glue it on Jeoff Molson office door at the Bell centre, with a note. Congratulations you have now made a once proud NHL team another Toronto Maple Leafs you should be proud.

  65. Adidess says:

    Man, I’m so pissed we’re losing this game …

  66. Clay says:

    Boone: “And that’s why he’s the back-up goaltender.”
    Lighten up man – he’s having a great game and that was the 27th shot.

    ☞ If I agreed with you we’d both be wrong. ☜

    • punkster says:

      Boone’s just going for fair and balanced reporting. If it was Price the comments here would range from “Mr. Softee lets another one in” to “Price has gotta stop those”. Fair and balanced slagging is an art form.

      ***Subbang Baby!!!***

      • Clay says:

        The FOX news of the hockey world? πŸ™‚
        As for me, I’m happy the goal went in – but I’ve reached the acceptance phase. Many here still seem to be in the denial or bargaining phases…

        ☞ If I agreed with you we’d both be wrong. ☜

    • kempie says:

      And I’d say it was a pretty nice shot at that.

  68. The Dude says:

    And that’s why we need 2x no:1 goalies….

  69. Danno says:

    Damn it!

    I mean good?


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

  70. novahab says:

    Who ever coaches this team next year it has to be about passing. JM teams couldn’t pass and they still can’t passed. Start the first 5 days of training camp with passing. From the time they get up in the morning till they get off. Make them run back to the hotel with sticks and passing. Back at the hotel make them pass. Before they go to bed make them pass. Passing, passing passing and more passing. make them pass till they throw up.

  71. punkster says:

    The ice is populated with putzes tonight.

    ***Subbang Baby!!!***

  72. JIMVINNY says:

    The ref is going to see a replay of that and wish he had given him a double minor for diving. That was ridiculous.

  73. HabFanSince72 says:

    Ref gets it right.

    Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.
