Game F. Seven!!!


Jaro: 53 saves


  1. phillyhab says:

    Alsoon second shift PP instead of Hamrlik.

  2. Bob Barker says:

    Maybe if Smyth didn’t shoot the puck like he was just learning how to do “lifters” the Kings would still be alive. 

  3. habsoul says:

    Love the positive outlook, Boone! 

    Even if the Caps win tonight, the future looks bright.

  4. phillyhab says:

    Markov has been pinching a lot and PK also has an offensive tendency — if no MAB I’d go




  5. rut1212 says:

    I hope that everyone going to the game tonight reads this, I would love to hear it on my TV.

  6. phillyhab says:

    Agree, except Laps — he’s been very effective for the ToI he’s been getting — great forechecking and drew a few penaltys.

    MAB too wasn’t too shabby in Game 5 with limited ice time… but where’s the Howitzer!?!?

  7. arcosenate says:

    Gotta save some for game 7!

  8. Jed says:

    Sorry man, got to disagree. Did you see Sergei float on the Caps goal last game? He was stuck on the ice after not changing, didn’t cover the point, didn’t go into the corner, literally just stood there in the defensive zone while the caps skated around him. Embarassing. He doesn’t deserve to even play against someone like Belanger, who ripped his own tooth out on the bench and was back playing hard his next shift. I’d take a player that cares (Pyatt, Laps) over one that is skilled and doesn’t give a rat’s behind in the playoffs. It’s the playoffs! I don’t care if he goes on to be a 70 point player in this league…give me a team of guys that will go through a plate glass window in the playoffs, and I’m happy.

  9. Chorske says:

    These should be carved on tablets and thrown at anyone who disobeys. I see Boone stumbling down frome the pressbox and chucking them at the so-called Subbanators. THOSE WHO WILL NOT LIVE BY THE LAW…..

    Sadly: not gonna happen. And folks will boo, especially the overprivileged “fans” who cram into the Bell and figure the basic rules of civility don’t apply when one is stupid enough to pay a scalper 800$ to drink 10$ beer and put on blackface (HAR HAARRRRR HAR, geddit, its because PK is black, HARRRRRRR).

  10. rut1212 says:

    I fully agree. At no point in these playoffs have I been disappointed in his effort level, and Martin’s benching of him tonight and past nights continues to disturb me.

  11. phillyhab says:

    • No one shows up in blackface, wearing an Afro wig.


    It’s hilarious and awful that you even have to say that!


    Regardless of my feeling about coaching and certain players, whatever happens tonight I’m excited and proud that we’re here in Game 6.  Let’s push the Caps to 7 and win one in the Bell!

  12. Bash says:

    Pk plays with Hammer…8-9 minutes + PP if things go as planned.

    Upgrade over MAB defensively and offensively!


    “If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.” (anon)

  13. SlovakHab says:

    A great post to start off a day that could be the last of the season, but may not be. Go Habs Go, whatever the result, just leave it all out there tonight!

  14. SeriousFan09 says:

    Bold Prediction: If Hawks win against Nashville, Canucks drop them in round 2 for a Conference Final. Niemi is not the Bulin Wall, who was a key factor in the Blackhawks six-game win last year, Keith is not playing like a Norris candidate and Toews has been a bit quiet in the series, Luongo will win the goaltending duel and that will be the difference.

    Those rules should be on a 20-foot banner outside of the Bell Centre, run it by PG and the Molsons Boone.


    - I shall always remember Captain Koivu.

  15. HUDSONHAB says:

    Pyatt and Lapierre stay. Suban is coming so MAB can sit. Hammer is toast.

    No matter what….CHEER CHEER CHEER!!!


  16. Mattee. says:

    Don’t worry, the Habs won’t go down 2-0 :). But i’m with you, if by some miracle, Washington manages to score TWO goals on our brick wall before we score 7, we should still support our boys :)

  17. Olay Olay Olay says:

    I’ve been bashing on Gill all year, and while I don’t take any of it back, he’s been consistently feeding me my words since the playoffs began. Keep it up Gill cause I’m not full yet.

  18. K-hab25 says:

    Like Plec’s last year right?

  19. Olay Olay Olay says:

    Agree 100% although I like MAB on the wing far more. 

  20. Habscore says:

    Even if let’s say the Caps lead 2-0 on us, please people keep on cheering our Boys, don’t start booing them. Everything is possible at this point and they need the crowd!!! Seeing how they battled in playoffs, our Habs deserve an applaud at the end of the game no matter what.!!

    – YES HABS CAN!! –

  21. Greg says:

    Bergeron is needed for his shot on the PP.

    Pyatt has been a warrior!

    As much as Hammer sucked last game, we need him at his best.

    Lapierre has played rather well these playoffs, in my opinion.


    “I lined up next to him at a faceoff, looked over and said “Hi Rocket”. All he did was growl.”

    -Gordie Howe

  22. SeriousFan09 says:

    Hey Ian, I went to see the Bulldogs in Game 6 last night and noticed during the warmup that P.K. lets the ankle guards on the back of his skates hang loose, do you know if he’s wearing the new kevlar hockey socks? Seeing the loose guards back there gave me nightmares of Lang and Markov.

    He looked great during the game btw, powered both regulation goals, probably tried carrying the offence a bit too much but honestly, with Pyatt, Maxwell up for Montreal and Pacioretty injured, they’re missing offence so it has fallen to the guy to push the offence forward for the Bulldogs. With 3G, 6A in 6 games, if the Bulldogs win the Calder Cup, I’d pick him for the Playoff MVP if he maintains this.

    - I shall always remember Captain Koivu.

  23. Norm0770 says:

    This is just my opinion, but Bergeron, Pyatt, Hamrlik or LaPierre should sit before S. Kostitsyn.

  24. wd40 says:

    Yes, please.  That should be Rule #1. 

  25. SeriousFan09 says:

    Oh Bull****, Lapierre couldn’t find his balls for about 70 of the regular season games this year. If he gets resigned this off-season, it’s because of his last name and PG feeling the need to have a least 1 or 2 Francophones on the roster. I say that as a guy who owns a Lapierre t-shirt.


    - I shall always remember Captain Koivu.

  26. Greg says:

    Yeah but that’s what we heard about Yannick Weber… big shot.  Until PK or Weber actually starts putting pucks in the net like MAB, he’ll be retained as a 4-line forward/PP specialist.


    “I lined up next to him at a faceoff, looked over and said “Hi Rocket”. All he did was growl.”

    -Gordie Howe

  27. HardHabits says:

    I am drooling at the prospect of Subban and Markov paired together.

  28. saskhab says:

    Rock the Bell. The seventh man matters.

    With 20 Too Many Men penalties called in the playoffs so far, truer words have never been spoken.  As a Roughriders fan (even though I know I’m in Als territory), please quit making any reference to the importance of the extra man in a pivotal game. 

  29. Mattee. says:

    While I’m ecstatic Subban might play to night, I hope it isn’t in favor of Sergei Kostitsyn. But you know that’s gonna happen.

  30. cautiousoptimist says:

    It’s really just a difference of two inches and nine pounds between MAB and PK.  Being the same size as Doughty doesn’t mean anything — Doughty’s not even a big guy.  Love the enthusiasm for PK, but we won’t really see what he can do for two or three years, after he’s had some time to settle into the league.

    1. – not a hockey site, but still kinda neat
    2. Mike Boone: “With Gainey at my side, I’d walk into any dark alley in the world.”
  31. DearyLeary says:

    hahahahah gold.

  32. soperman says:

    Good Rules, Boone.

    Though I don’t think number one should even have to be written – come on, guys show some common sense.

    “Pusie possessed a wickedly wild shot, so inaccurate that he could not hit the province of Quebec if he was standing inside the Montreal Forum.” Dick Beddoes

    Totally agree. You hear that Boone? Pom poms.

    “love cannot drown truth, Nefertiti”

  34. Mr.Hazard says:

    That’s why MAB’s contract is ending this year….!

    “love cannot drown truth, Nefertiti”

  35. Ian Cobb says:

    We are a better squad than you give us credit for my friend and our coach is starting to coach!

  36. andrewberkshire says:

    The way Fleury is playing, Pittsburgh wouldn’t sweep Edmonton.

  37. Ian Cobb says:

    I have enjoyed this young mans career since he
    was a walk on at 16 years old in junior. I have posted many times that
    he is going to be a super star in the NHL in years to come.

    don’t think that he is there already and that this 20 year old kid is
    going to lead us to the promised land tonight. He still has some
    seasoning to go.

    But when he arrives, competes and comfortable
    in this league. We are going to see and enjoy some magic from this kid.
    With his skates, his stick, his great wit and personality.

    Super fast, plays two way’s, has an accurate and blistering shot from the point.

  38. Fansincebirth says:

    and no booing the national anthem (either one). Show some class!

  40. habsfan0 says:

    Habs win tonight,win Game 7 in Washington Wednesday,get swept in 4 by Pittsburgh.

  41. danedmunds says:

    rules for jacques martin: play subban, sit bergeron

  42. TheDagger says:

    MAB is making MAB obsolete.

  43. mbplekfan says:

    If he merely as good as those two I will see a missed opportunity. Nothing more.

    The habs need a game breaker to come out of their prospects, its been too long. PK is our next hope for that type of player.

    I agree with giving him time and not proclaiming him the next coming of Orr, but there are lots of 20 year old d-men making the jump to the NHL and contributing right away.


  44. Iceberg84 says:

    They start the night by naming a captain… Paul Mara! :D

  45. G-Man says:

    Laps, Pyatt, amd Hamrlik have given the Habs all they could give this season. SK won’t and Bergeron can’t.

  46. likehoy says:

    the PP isn’t struggling…4 for 22, for just under 20 percent efficiency. we scored a PP goal in every game of the series except the tight-checking 2-1 win on friday night.

    i’m more concerned about our 5 on 5.

  47. gwebster says:

    naysayers of the world, unite!

  48. Habscore says:

    AAHH!! I just wanna go ride my car with my two Habs flags around the city, I’m so effin excited for tonight!!

    No, I gotta stay in and study for my final. :(

    – YES HABS CAN!! –

  49. saskhab says:

    Wow.  So I guess if he ‘flames out’ as a mere Daryl Sydor or Eric Desjardins type player, you’ll be severely ticked off and probably want him traded in three years.  Just like all the people expecting Carey Price to be the next Patrick Roy or Ken Dryden right off the bat. 

  50. Spoons91 says:


    follow me on twitter —

  51. Hammer says:

    Habs should dress Chris Nilan as the flag player and wait in the weeds for Ovie to spray him!!

  52. sidhu says:

    Love the move, can’t wait to see PK skate for us.

    The PP is struggling and can’t get any worse (esp giving up 2 shorties). 

    PK is also a right shot, and will keep the Caps guessing.

  53. mbplekfan says:

    PK is making MAB obsolete. I dont see JM using him in place of MAB just yet but the writing is on the wall.

    PK has a blistering point shot, can handle the puck and also play effective D. He also is much bigger than MAB and is not easily pushed around.

    By xmas next year PK will be our #2 defenceman. He is the same size and age as Drew Doughty and has been an allstar at the WJC.  He dominates the game at the AHL level and has shown flashes of what he will become in the NHL.

    Think Brad Park or Ray Bourque and thats where PK is going.

  54. cautiousoptimist says:

    WOO!!! And furthermore, HOO!!!!

    1. – not a hockey site, but still kinda neat
    2. Mike Boone: “With Gainey at my side, I’d walk into any dark alley in the world.”
  55. MikeMcLaren says:

    “Stay positive for 60 minutes.”

    Monsieur Boone, I really, really DO hope you don’t take a “Do as I say, not as I do” approach on this one.  We, the fans of the Canadiens, can use all the mojo you or anyone else can muster.  That means no “Washington’s going to tie it up now” or “They’re done, just done” type sentiments.

    You have said many times this is not a cheerleading site and that’s fine.  It is better that way.  But for one day, for one game can you please practice what you preach in your rules and break out the skirt, tight-fitting sweater and, of course, the pom-poms and just go with the POSITIVE vibes minus negativity tonight?


  56. ProHabs says:

    Agreed. Sergei hasn’t done enough to warrent making a big deal about him not being in the lineup. He is providing no offence (0 points) and makes no physical contributions. Take a seat upstairs SK.

  57. Natrous says:

    I agree that Markov needs a stay-at-home dman paired with him due to his offensive pinches, although I’d rather Markov focus on keeping the puck our of our net than putting it in theirs for game 6. Offense hasn’t been our problem of late…

  58. gwebster says:

    I don’t know if you noticed but our PP hasn’t had much success against Washington with MAB on D – last game the puck got past him and out of the zone over and over again.  PK could change things around.  I bet PK gets first line PP duties with Markov.  If MAB does play tonight he will be on the 2nd PP D pairing.

    And as to SK comments on other posts, the fast the he’s benched is because he’s a defensive liability, not because he is less talented offensively.  This team needs to play near perfect defense to take this game.

  59. habsoul says:

    I agree. Subban replaces MAB on defense.

    Who would I pick for offensive duty between Sergei and MAB? That’s kind of a no-brainer. Which describes Jacques Martin’s approach to playoff hockey.

  60. Danno says:

    Washington is like a fighter thats been hit to many times their legs are getting week. They are feeling it the setroids are starting to tighen the muscles. Ok rocky time to put these steroid laiden a-%^$# down.

  63. Chorske says:

    Not I. But me being a doubter is apparently all it takes to make this team win.

    So: BAH. HUMBUG.

  64. Clay4bc says:

    We have them rattled…foot on their throats, and now we need to finish them. Damn living in Shanghai, and I work in 5 minutes…


    Don’t argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

  65. TripleX says:

    Laps playing like we all hoped he would at some point. Pouliot so far is showing why he was dumped by the Wild, great skill but needs a heart transplant.  Cammy?  What a natural born sniper.  Gionta and Gomez playing like playoff veterans.  Gill and Georges just heroic.  Halak?  What can you say about Halak.

    PK?  Does this dude have ice in his veins or what?

  66. Harditya_CareyPrice says:


  67. Chorske says:

    If you have jinxed us, dumbass, you are SO dead to me

  68. Clay4bc says:

    Oh – and to the Calgary Flames organization…THANK YOU for not signing Cammy!


    Don’t argue with an idiot; people watching may not be able to tell the difference.

  69. punkster says:

    Some want MAB benched. Some want Hamrlik benched. Get real. We haven’t got the horses to bench both, or either for that matter. Some things you just got to live with.

  70. andrewberkshire says:

    Third time in the series Cammalleri opened the scoring Boone!

  71. Rob says:

    when Gainey signed him, I was one of many who couldn’t believe that Hal F. Gill was gonna be patrolling our defence. I HATED him with a passion.  Through the first half of the season, I maintained my view point and, although he showed some value killing penalties, i was still adamant that Hal Gill was a terrible defenceman.  By the end of the regular season, I had seen enough to realize that, you know….maybe if the coach just utilized him in the appropriate situations, like on the PK and playign limited minutes, I think Hal Gill could be an EFFECTIVE defenceman. 

    At this point in time, i think it’s safe to say….anybody who still HATE Hal Gill must be blind of just stubbornly cynical.  This guy has been at WORST our second best dman the entire series.  Hal F. Gill.  I hated the 2 year contract when it was given out.  But thank GOD we have him locked up next year. 

    So everyone say it with me now…..we confess!  We love you Hal Gill!!!

  72. andrewberkshire says:

    Time to use a sick day, Clay.

  74. floatingineather says:

    most impressive 1 st period, keep it up, man if we take this game, can you immagine the pressure on the Caps, with Pitts already winning, wow gonna be fun

    O’B nice hit, i guess hes no longer in the doghouse, 7 mins of play in th 1 st, more than Hammer..a bit more than Joshie

    MAB under 2 mins of ice time, and look at the potential damage


  75. andrewberkshire says:

    He’s been phenomenal in this series, better than I ever would have expected.

  76. crabvader says:

    We killed a 5 on 3 with over a minute against the league’s deadliest power-play and we’ve been making it look like the worst all series long.

    They may not have been my favorite bunch during the season, but I am in love with our Habs right now.

  77. avatar_58 says:

    don’t be silly, without Iginla feeding him he sucks!!! ROFL

  78. novahab says:

    MAB is scaring as hell god he almost twice gave up a short handed goal sit him on that bench and play P K. Come on JM don’t play MAB anymore the Caps look at him out there and they get pumped. Time to play to win P K needs that reg shift and MAB needs to sit.

  79. K-hab25 says:

    Great period from Halak, Cammy and Laps. Oh and of course the dynamic duo Gill and Georges, great pk play as usual.

  80. novahab says:

    Thank you Bob Gainey for this team they show so much heart thank you again .

  81. HardHabits says:


  82. crabvader says:

    Cammalleri is turning into a left-handed Brett Hull. Especially during the playoffs, so far!

    GREAT PERIOD HABS, Caps don’t have a clue what’s going on!  Please keep it up Canadiens!

    Since no one else will chant his name I will.

  84. habs_1993 says:

    Hey Boone

    its actually the 3rd time he’s openned scoring in the series

    Game 1….Game 5….and This game

  85. Xtrahabsfan says:

    If the Crapatals are doing roids there the kind that shrink nards,lol    GO HABS GO !

  88. Chuck says:

    Man, Buffalo’s gone into the dumper in the span of a few games. Just goes to prove that even with one of the best goalies in the world, you’re toast if the guys playing in front of him can’t put the puck in the net at the other end.


    Cheer for the crest on the front of the jersey, not the name on the back.

  89. Shiloh says:

    He’s been solid. I sure wasn’t expecting him to be this useful. I like the two-year deal too. He might be a perfect partner for PK next year. Interesting that Georges Laraque said on Off the Record that Gill was the most vocal guy in the dressing room – always keeping the boys up.

  90. novahab says:

    If this team has a comfortable lead late in th third they should play the rocky song during a break. I love to hear the bells that bam the song .

  91. Harditya_CareyPrice says:

    Wow, do I look like a fool for saying that Bob Gainey needed to step down.

    And I look like a even bigger fool for saying that this is not a playoff team.

  92. Chuck says:



    Cheer for the crest on the front of the jersey, not the name on the back.

  93. catie says:

    These guys are playing great.  Question for you all:  Am I the only one who is suspicious that the Caps are DELIBERATELY sliding into their own net at times when things are heating up around their goalie? There have been several situations now where this has happened, and sliding in pushes the net off and gets them off the hook.  Surely this is as much a delay of game as Hamrlik’s puck into the crowd? And it looks to me to be a darned sight more deliberate.  Comments?

  94. HugeHabsFan says:

    Who expected this? I mean come on, I was hopeful, but that was a fantastic period!

  101. sidhu says:

    Difference between us and Washington –

    We have guys in the room who got everyone focused, who didn’t give up, who kept it together.  We have Gomer, Gio, Gill, Moen, all of whom have been there and done it.

    And now we have PK!

  102. Keith says:

    If Green wins the Norris then the NHL Awards are as corrupt and incompetent as the officials. Drew Doughty or Duncan Keith (great last name lol!) are far more deserving. Doughty’s got my vote, just love that kid.

    Completely agreed.

    Habs are exhausted. Scotty Gomez is a warrior.

    1:30 left.


  108. RetroMikey says:

    I really don’t know if we can beat the Caps on their home ice. we simply are running on empty as they say, but it has been an exciting series so far.

    Halak has come back to be the goalie we expected of him and disapoitments as well such as little Sergei not playing to his expectations or should I say a being a bust.

    I sense the Capitals will come very strong Wednesday night as they have tonight and don’t know if Jaro can pull what he did tonight against a rowdy pro Caps crowd, yes they are a wild bunch in Washington.

    Good luck to the players, the next round against the Penguins will be just as difficult if they pull it through.

    If we do not sign Jaroslav Halak as our number 1 goalie, I’ll be a disappointed, no a pissed  fan as others will be also. 

    This guy is what it’s all about wearing the CH jersey, hope Carey has learned his  lesson here in Montreal that you have to work hard to be the Number 1 goalie in Montreal and it is not given to you.

  116. Chris says:

    Actually, Tim Peel did not ref the Carolina game.  The referees that night were Dennis LaRue and Dan Marouelli.  And nope…still  haven’t forgiven them for that flagrant missed call!  :)

  117. andrewberkshire says:

    Oh for sure, I agree completely. However I just don’t feel like they’ve been dominating us in possession or time on attack. They might be according to the stats, it just doesn’t feel that way.

    halak was unbelievable. biggest plays of 1st period (outside of cammy’s goals, of course) were roughing up the caps when they barged into the crease. nice to see some pushback, and i think halak’s confidence and freedom to be aggressive got a big boost.

    Money, really it comes down to that. Ideally we’d sign both young guys and have the best young tandem in hockey, but the cold reality is that Halak has played his way into a ginormous raise (not that the market for goalies is all that hot, actually), and he can go to arbitration. Price has (according to many) a higher ceiling and is coming off a so-so year (although someone told me that statistically he is better than Brodeur was at his age), and cannot go to arbitration.

They’re RFA’s, not UFA’s. Price will be lucky to get a small raise and Halak will probably get 2.5 to 3mill, tops. We fans always overprice our own.

    Reffing was horrific.  Three diving penalties ALL YEAR in the NHL in which there was only one player called.  Two on Lapierre tonight alone in a pivotal game.

    As for anyone who isn’t believing in Halak at this point I give up.  People have asked him to pass this test and that test and he has passed them all.  He had a great run at the Olympics and got tired down the stretch and people here said he sucked and wanted Price in.  If he’d had a little more gas in his tank he would have stopped the puck in game 2 and we’d be in the next round.

    Oh, and after tonight’s legendary performance, his stock is up and his price won’t be cheap.  All time Habs record for saves in a regulation playoff game and all-time NHL record for saves in an regulation elimination game.

    If they don’t win Game 7, I still feel that we’ve turned the corner. We have a 24-year-old goaltender who literally steals games. He’s been doing it for two years. PK is here to stay and we have Gill for one more year to bring him along. Hamrlik is on the way out, but he has been a good signing – he gave us a lot in the years we have had him. O’Byrne is getting fantastic experience.

    Moen is playing his best hockey and Moore is a revelation every game. Tomas Jagr is still ticking – maybe he’s for real. Cammy, Gionta, Gomer and AK46 are dangerous.

    The building rocked!! The seventh man played a HUGE role! (I say it’s due to the towels coming back lol)

    Did you see three or four guys closing in around Halak, like: You ain’t putting a puck in our net!

    And it is so F obvious that the NHL wants Chicago in, like fifteen penalties in the past 5 min

    but some cosmic force really wanted the caps to win this—and halak said “no thanks”.

    one of the most incredible habs games ive ever seen.

    Boudreau looks like he just threw up in his mouth

  292. Chorske says:

    Seriously. Possibly the most important goal scored by a Hab this season. And it’s so effing Hollywood that it should be Laps.

  293. topher5468 says:

    The only sad thing about game 7 is no Charissa Thompson, Bob Harwood will be back. I think she distracted Ape man in the pre game interview, he was blushing like a grade school kid while talking to her. I dont think she wants his small Ba1ls

    Right, cause Gionta is a big diver … BRUTAL call, just stupid.

  295. Norm0770 says:

    That’s 2 BS diving calls against the Habs.  I wonder if Gionta has EVER been called for diving?  I somehow doubt it.

  296. Just A Guy says:

    I don’t konw how its possible, but I hope Gionta elevates his game even more now, how dare the refs call his intent in question!

    Jaro was like, shy, so humble, a little skate around, nothin much. Cammy punched his fist over and over and I loved that TSN stayed with it. Maybe cuz Molson is a sponsor? Lapierre… few are as happy as him when they score. Gotta love that wide grin.

    Bring the Cup home Boys! I Will Always Believe!

  300. HabsFanInKorea says:

    Both diving penalties were BS. Who cares. Lappy you’re my hero! Halak… no words are needed there

  301. habaholic68NJ says:

    F-ing unbelievable.  This team has more heart than I’ve seen in years.  Halak is our savior.  Where are the experts who said Caps in 4 or 5.  As for three diving penalties in one game???  The fix was definitely in tonight.  Sorry Bettman.  Your paid refs couldn’t pull it off.

  302. JasonM says:

    A trip is a goddamn trip!

  303. habs_1993 says:

    Halak….WE ARE NOT WORTHY!!

  304. Chris says:

    That behind the back stuff is part and parcel of P.K. Subban…it’ll drive you absolutely nuts, but it also forms a significant part of his charm.  I’m sure Martin and Muller are going to be talking to him a lot about that between now and Wednesday night!

    I think that Gionta for captain after the playoffs he has had is also a no-brainer.  Markov is the undisputed on-ice leader of the team, but I suspect even he would be happy to have Gionta as the captain.

  305. showey47 says:

    He is absolutely the last person on this team who would dive to draw a penalty.

  306. king ddd says:

    this is for you, TSN goons, pj stock(what the hell do u know about hockey), some rds freaks.. and the so called experts.. take your bloody analysis and shove it up there!

  309. nova scotia vees says:

    Wow!! Halak fabulous….Referees and linesmen(so crooked).  But what do you expect…Ovy and the Caps are the league darlings.  But with reffing like that, the NHL will soon be just another version of WWF…

    No way, Laps dove the second time.  He was hooked and hit in the visor with the stick.  And Gionta…are you kidding me!! It was a classic “can-opener”.  You try skating with a stick being twisted between your legs!!  And how about Fehr’s crosscheck on Halak’s back.  Double minor if we did it.

    And what is icing?  And what is the rule regarding face-offs?  The linesman can quietly tilt the playing field without alot of people noticing.  This is the secret weapon of the NHL front-office.  I for one would change the whole face-off set-up.  Put the puck on the dot and make the players skate in from the back of the circle on the whistle….Puts an end to throwing the key face-off man out, all the time.

    But, really folks…look up the final league stats (Hockey News).  The top teams in Power-plays are all teams that either didn’t make the playoffs or are franchises in trouble. 

    Here’s what David Stern (NBA), told his coaches and players, when they criticized the officials..” They have to keep quite.  We have a nice business going here, and they make a good living off it.”  Words that could easily be mouthed by Betteman.

    This series has been a drawn-out “The Comeback against the Rangers”

    I bet no one seriously thought the Habs could reach this point — tied 3-3 with the Caps — except for the 20 or so guys in the locker room.

    This team has a lot of pride and character.  This is what makes the Canadiens franchise great.

    Jaro with one of the best games I’ve seen a goaltender have and most importantly in elimination games he’s 2-0. Great game, the crowd was so freaking loud.

    But called by the guy outside the zone, not the ref right there.  VS guys thought it was a questionable call and couldn’t believe the Gionta all.  Like Gionta would EVER dive.

  335. Instant Karma says:

    HAS to be MAB

  340. Just A Guy says:

    its now official, the refs are trying to get Washington back in this game.

  341. Mattee. says:

    Mckenzie stated that 35 diving penalties have been handed out all season and only three without a coinciding tripping penalty. We got 2 tonight.

    WHAT was that for? ANOTHER dive? please say it ain’t so

  346. topher5468 says:

    If I were confident Halak would be here next year, I would be on the phone to the Habs Zone tomorrow getting my Halak Jersey. Hell I might do it anyway, Trade in my Fake Price Jersey

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

  347. Ian Cobb says:

    Jacques Martin’s game plan worked to perfection.

    a coach, letting Washington stay in our end all night firing pucks to
    keep Halak warm and supple. While the Capital’s goal tender stiffened
    up from no work and cold. It was like pick-en cherries!

    We will get rid of these guys on Wednesday night and get ready for a long series with Crosby and the Pens.

    Love it when a plan comes together.

    everyone knows,!! that this team is much better than most people
    thought. Entertainment and thrills are back in town boys and girls.

    Still scared that Martin shortens his bench to much.

    Despite the attempts of the referees to ref the score, we pulled it off with a goal tender that must be one tired puppy.

  375. punkster says:

    For me, a guy who didn’t see much of Roy, this display by Halak is something I haven’t witnessed since the days of Bower and Worsley. Maybe even Plante (little guy, crazy moves). Similar wacked out acobatic style. You think he’s out of position but he manages to snag the puck. You think he’s off balance but he blocks the shot. Unreal guys. Wow.

  388. punkster says:

    He covers for his partners (at the expense of not jumping in low on the PP as much recently), clears their zone with ease, slows the pace down when things get too hot, makes clean and smart passes and is sound defensively (which is good for a defenceman ;)

    PK wasn’t that good (read earlier post) but he did play well. MAB came real close on the PP just missing the far side with one of his wicked blasts and I don’t remember him playing badly(if limited ice time) on defense. Why does everyone suddenly hate MAB? our leading d-man goal scorer. He may not be prettty out there but without his shot (and 16 goals) we would be watching the Rangers tonight.

    I’m hoping you’re right, but have to say I still don’t expect Habs to keep Halak.  I’m not sure he’s affordable or will stay at this point.  We’ll see.  I still think 75% chance it’ll be Carey.  Halak’s been great whenever we’ve wanted him but still get the sense that most Habs fans strongly prefer Price.  I don’t, although I can see he may be great one day and has nice size. . . Doesn’t worry me to trade him but don’t see it happening.

    Rask is making Leafs fans really hurt, and next year adding their top pick.  It’s a good time to be a fan of that frigging team.

  422. Norm0770 says:

    Hard to generate offense when you’re playing 6 on 10.  The Capitals were called for obvious penalties, but the Habs were called for very questionable penalties.

    No doubt the team needs to play better, but Martin could use some better bench/line-up management.  If the team is going to kill penalties all night, SK74 should be in the line-up so Gionta, Gomez and Plekanec don’t have to take as many shorthanded shifts.  Bergeron hasn’t generated anything on the PP and is -8 so he wouldn’t be missed in game 7.

    Was at the game, wow was it loud! Great win, but I hope the Habs organization doesn’t rest on this victory because the war is not over. Big beef with the officials yet again. Everyone knows those diving calls were completely bogus, especially the one on Gionta and the hook around Lapierre’s neck. Boudreau has the nerve to come out and say Lapierre deserved it based on his reputation, but if there’s any coach in the league who cries too much about nothing, it’s Boudreau. He’s the biggest whiner in the NHL, so maybe he should get an unsporstmanlike penalty too then. The Caps ran Halak out of the crease at least 8-10 times without a call, and even Halak and Martin lost it on the refs tonight. The officiating, despite the win, was downright unacceptable and every single person in the building knew it. The NHl has got a great game and a 100% corrupted front office that will do whatever it can to make money, even if it means cheating. I don’t see any way the league can justify those diving calls and non-calls on the Caps or living in the crease. We keep calling for Chris Lee to be fired or Denis Larue to be fired or now Tim Peel to be fired, but come on, to have so many incompetent or biased officials, the only wya the problem is going to be fixed is to get the guy at the top. The Molsons are back and they need to do all they can to get Bettman out or the Habs (or any other Canadian team) will never win a cup again.

    Jaro’s effort was heroic.  The whole team rocked tonight.  Incredible game.  Not even the refs could fix this one.  Take this momentum into Washington and the Habs will blow them away!!!   

  440. J. Ambrose says:

    Not sure where you’re getting that impression. Jaro receives thunderous applause every time his name is mentioned, while Carey gets a mix of cheers and groans (and even boos). Mtl is clearly a Halak town now. Other than a few Price zealots here, I don’t think there’d be much of an outcry from Mtlers if CP is dealt away.

  441. MathMan says:

    Look at the bright side; PK Subban won’t have his confidence crushed by making multiple mistakes in this game. As soon as he makes one, Martin will bench him for the rest of his life. ;)

  442. WarHero says:

    Someone call a doctor, im having a heart attack!!



    Never judge another man’s decision poor until you actually have proof of it failing!

  443. Mr. Biter says:

    Agree with you. Sitting on the pine seems to have gotten to OB and he has elevated his game, not like so many players in our recent past who got benched sulked, whined and never got the message from the coach. OB did not leave his man alone in front of our net since his time on the pine.Good for him. he made mistakes in 2 games , sat, learned and has come back a better player. To all the JM haters out there his “system” seems to have worked for OB. Screw up major and you sit.

    Time for another drink.

  444. SlovakHab says:

    Jaro Halak? Are you kidding me!!??

  445. Matt_in_TO says:

    I wonder if Max thought for a second that he was getting the call there


    - I Hab Faith

  446. ooder says:

    anderson who?

    i found the shot count extremly flattering to the caps and the PPs didn’t help.

    what a brave and gritty play by the guys

    blocking shots and taking care in thier own end.. very non risky play and pure simple hockey

    you can see the capitals fall apart and every man try to play themselves.

    I loved seing JM so pissed, goes to show he isn’t a mute or a stoned faced guy.

    oh ya.. and the goalie was not bad either


    “I like what I’m seeing right now,” assessed Markov. “We’re not perfect, but we’re trying to be.”

  447. Ian Cobb says:

    This is what we live for hard habits, 3 hours of pure drama and stress. Come to think about it, sounds like marriage!!!

  448. JasonM says:

    Not a penalty shot? Really? He was 1 on 1 with the goalie. No shot.

  449. Merc_Roswell says:

    Lets scram before the cops come!!!!


    Yay Habs!

  450. TripleX says:

    Thanks Ian.  Here I am pulling my hair out by the roots and all along it was all part of a brilliant plan by JM.  That is why we novices bow down to your immense hockey knowledge.  LOL

  455. Big Ted says:

    I’ve said it before, the linesmen are just as bad as the refs. Not only do they toss people out (usually us) on over half the drawsm they have also missed a number of offsides and made questionable calls on what an icing is or where a faceoff should be. the officiating as a whole has gone way down in the past couple of years.

  456. Big Bird says:

    Wonder if Theodore is looking at Halak and thinking ‘That was me back in 2002 against the Bruins.”

  457. HugeHabsFan says:

    Oh there ya go – that makes sense.

    ……….. “Thank you Cammy for making my day even more amazing!” I STILL BELIEVE. I WILL ALWAYS BELIEVE.

    Good God man, this is one of the most calm and rational rants/posts I have ever read from you. And entirely on target. And did I say calm? Go to bed this instant. Immediately! No, don’t go near the fridge. Straight to bed.

    Geez, and we get stuck with McGuire’s shiny head.

  463. geo_habsgo says:

    This is one of the most entertaining games I have ever watched in my young life. And not because we are winning, it is just great hockey!

  464. geo_habsgo says:

    This is one of the most entertaining games I have ever watched in my young life. And not because we are winning, it is just great hockey!

  465. Norm0770 says:

    Halak is an RFA so he can’t just leave.  If I was GM for a day (before July 1, of course) I would sign Halak and let someone else make an offer to Price and take the picks that result, hopefully whichever team tries to sign Price or Halak if Gautier doesn’t sign him, tanks as bad as the Leafs resulting in high picks.

  466. Shiloh says:

    If that’s not a penalty shot, what is?

  467. Chorske says:

    3P 11:23: Greatest goaltending performance I’ve ever seen.

    It’s astonishing. Exhausting.

  468. Merc_Roswell says:

    Giants will fall.

  469. TripleX says:

    Could not disagree more dude.  Jaro is the fan fav and Price is the choice of management and the hockey gurus for logical reasons.  But potential does not win games.  Hard choice either way and I would not want to make the choice.

  470. hablifting says:

    No dive this time you chicken shit ref?  Are you sure?

  471. Harditya_CareyPrice says:

    Hahah, the site crashed again.


  472. punkster says:

    Almost as hard as calling for SK to play.

  473. Big Bird says:

    Just send it to me and I’ll burn it for ya TripleX.  I promise. :)

  474. alfieturcotte says:

    I’ve seen Dryden, Roy, and countless others throughout the NHL the past 35 years, and I don’t recall a stronger goaltender performance than Halak’s tonight.  Thank you Jaro for treating us to your brilliance tonight.  It was a pleasure to watch.



  475. Big Ted says:

    Not only did we get called for questionable penalties, we also got called for Washington’s penalties.

  476. sidhu says:

    Are they going to call diving on Lapierre too?!

    Now I know why DC people refer to Corvo as “CorvOh No”

  477. moser17 says:

    oh, please don’t blame the flower, mate….

  478. punkster says:

    Ah yes but more important will Timo the Terrible become Timo the Tame if we beat the Caps?

  479. Habscore says:

    I can’t stop clapping!!!  Excuse me but, JARO deserves a mention of honor from the City of Montreal, he needs to sign the book or smtg like other MTL athletes did…(although he’s not from MTL, lol! )

    – YES HABS CAN!! –

  480. HardHabits says:

    I couldn’t take watching this game on my computer so I went to see the 3rd period in my local watering hole with a crowd of local Quebecois and a pint of Rickard’s Red. Flippin’ unbelievable. I couldn’t believe the diving calls. Bettman’s gonna soil his pants if the Habs and Deroit win their respective game 7’s. What’s a matter Betsy, you can’t sell a Red Wings-Canadiens final? You aint no salesman then!!!!!

  481. JasonM says:

    I thought they called diving on halak there

  482. punkster says:

    No prisoners!

  484. Mr. Biter says:

    Going out to the deck to have a Montecristo #4 (and another Rum) saving a Esplendido for after wed. night. One more game and I converet to a Hakak believer. PJ played well (obviously plays up to his competition) however his behind the back through his legs pass in our end must have given JM a mild cornary and i don’t believe he saw any(or very limited) ice after that play. The whole team played great but Halak was Brilliant. BTW wasn’t it BG who took Cammy after AK27 refused the initial offer. Thank you AK for going to Ottawa and thank you Cammy for coming here. A lot younger and a better all around player. Laps you scare me. I don’t know what to think. Great goal, good forechecking and actually hitting people, but 2 stupid diving penalties. Is your helmet on to tight?

    Don’t want to end on a sour note so GO HABS GO and stick it to CBC, MM, PJS and Don Cherry (whose rants i do like but his hate to the Habs drives me nuts as well as his suits) and to end , thank you CBC for not picking up the Habs 1st round games so we could have some non Lafs broadcasters and please don’t pick up the 2nd. round also. TSN or Versus is some much better. Also Listing to HNIC Radio tomorrow afternoon is going to be sooooooo muuuuuch  fuuuuuuuun.

    “Ladies tonight the spirit and the flesh are willing”

  486. Shiloh says:

    Another brutal call.

  487. Ian Cobb says:

    Lorne! don’t pull it all out. But I could use some with roots, I’m getting quite thin on top my friend!

  488. JasonM says:

    OMG, this is soooo fixed



  489. Norm0770 says:

    So of Bergeron, Darche or S. Kostitsyn, who should sit?

  490. Harditya_CareyPrice says:

    Silly refs!

  491. habsfaninboston says:

    Just got in.  Unbelievable!  This was the 2nd straight game I missed and they won both.  Having serious doubts whether I should watch game 7.

  492. habsfanmandy says:

    So what? If we play like we did for the past 2 games it’s no prob :) The Habs didn’t let it get to them tonight at all

    Bring the Cup home Boys! I Will Always Believe

  493. WarHero says:

    Amen :)


    Never judge another man’s decision poor until you actually have proof of it failing!

  494. Keith says:

  495. coachdoug says:

    Refs channeling Chris Lee…Stupid calls

    “Save us Turtleneck Man…We need you now more than ever!”

  496. Big Bird says:

    a little too nonchalant there pk….but you’re young so i’ll forgive ya…

  497. sidhu says:

    Not a great shift by PK — he’s being a little too cute when you can’t afford to be

  498. Steve in Kingston says:

    CAREY PRICE is SO outtahere.

    2010-2011: Halak and Desjardins.

  499. HardHabits says:

    I know. What was he thinking on that tip in. He was clearly on the wrong side.

  500. Montrealer2 says:

    I love the quick transition Habs are getting tonight

  501. Habscore says:

    Thanks that’s what I was looking for! lol

    – YES HABS CAN!! –

  502. badangel says:

    fml I move on friday.

    ok well hopefully pens habs is on Sat. I’d imagine CBC will want to promote Crosby. hehe I think it will all work out!

  503. JasonM says:

    That was a legit call.

  504. Shiloh says:

    The refs are doing their best to take it away from us.

  505. Mattee. says:

    The refs are shit. What a Joke. 

  506. Shiloh says:

    There should br two Washington penalties there.

  507. crabvader says:

    These refs are God awful. They are the worst pieces of scum to ever grace the NHL.

  508. badangel says:

    is it bad that I get excited when the habs get a PP … then really scared .. worrying there might be a SH goal :s

  509. Keith says:

    I knew that was coming. F%^&**@#$% refs!!!

    “Save us Turtleneck Man…We need you now more than ever!”

  515. CharlieHodgeFan says:

    I’m glad they called that one.

  516. Mattee. says:

    why you gotta say that right now?

  517. habsfan0 says:

    By all rights,the series should be over,4-2 for the Habs,if it wasn’t for a blown 3 goal lead in Game 2.

  518. punkster says:

    I’ll go along with that. Nice to see Bower make it into two comments here tonight :)

    Unreal display Brian. Totally focused, in the zone, dialed in, whatever phrase you like. I hope he goes straight home, sips a beer and falls asleep in front of the 11 o’clock news.

  519. Norm0770 says:

    I’m surprised they called that one.

  520. hablifting says:

    Terrible call.  Since when can’t you take a guy out of the play once he chips in the puck?  Garbage.

  521. HabFanSince72 says:

    Is anyone else starting to really dislike Bruce Boudreau?


  522. Keith says:

    And Halak give him the Billy Smith treatment.

  523. sidhu says:

    Of course.  The Caps can just trip over the blueline at this point at a call will be made against the Habs.

    Refs to Boudreau: “look, I can’t call a penalty until you guys fall first”

  524. smiler2729 says:

    I wrote at 4:30 pm that the Forum ghosts were taking the metro to the Bell Centre… and now they’re fixing a traditional playoff mtachup against Boston somewhere down this line.

    Game 7s rock.

  525. punkster says:

    My preference is to sit SK. His work ethic is lacking. He would only get 3 or 4 minutes playing time and would not pull his weight for that brief time whereas Darche and MAB come to work.

  526. habs fan from stonyplain says:

    anyone who thinks there is any goalie controversy they got ended tonight sign jaro longterm, even though Mr. Freidman thinks he won’t sign here. He is an rfa so we can match if anyone tries to pry him from us.

  527. RudeMood19 says:

    Stubbs basically asked Bruce what he thought of the diving penalties, and Bruce said he wasn’t surprised because ‘they’ve been diving all series” and he’s happy the refs finalls noticed

  528. habsoul says:

    Wow, Jaro can’t do this by himself. Habs have to give him some relief.

  529. habsoul says:

    Maybe not the best time to take a penalty.

  530. topher5468 says:

    To that very astute fan who said this series was lost years ago because of our inability to draft,  do you have any other astute things to say tonight. 

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

  531. Big Bird says:

    I disagree.  Keep him until you must trade him.  He played well in Game 4.  

    Or you deal him and S. Kostitsyn to Edmonton or Chicago for a package if similar young high potential players.

  532. doug says:

    I’m prepared to make my verdict. SIGN HALAK!

  533. HugeHabsFan says:

    Booner, why exactly would they be popular?????  It’s so blatantly obvious they are trying to give Washington the chance to come back.


    “Thank you Cammy for making my day even more amazing!” I STILL BELIEVE. I WILL ALWAYS BELIEVE.

  534. Ian Cobb says:

    Despite the attempts of the referees to ref the score, we pulled it off with a goal tender that must be one tired puppy.

    Now we can finish them off Wednesday and get ready for Crosby and the Pens.

    Get ready for another long series boys and girls!

    TIMO can you climb on board yet,?  don’t miss this ride altogether my friend!!!

  535. RudeMood19 says:

    Halak violated the Geneva Convention tonight, and then some.

  544. Steve in Kingston says:

    SO GLAD le petit chou-chou isn’t in nets tonight.

  545. Bob Barker says:

    Allan Walsh is just going to bring the highlights from tonight’s game when negotiating Halak’s contract. 

    What a performance. 

    Cammy, Gomez, Gill, AK46, Lapierre and definitely PK!!!! played great. I can’t wait until game 7. 


  546. smiler2729 says:

    Halak reminds me of Patrick Roy in the ’86 playoffs in the OT vs. the Rangers… this is just as fun as I imagined it’d be when I wrote a week or so ago that I hoped we faced Washington.

    Props to R.J. Umberger

  547. Danno says:

    Like I said before:



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

    This is some seriously embarrassing refereeing. Just sad.

    you’re not kidding.

    ……….. “Thank you Cammy for making my day even more amazing!” I STILL BELIEVE. I WILL ALWAYS BELIEVE.

  551. smiler2729 says:

    You can’t say that, if Montreal had won Game 2, then Washington may have come out even hungrier in Games 3 and 4… it’s that Butterfly Effect

  552. gumper says:

    What the hell is with Markov tonight?

  553. Chuck says:

    How quickly Mike has forgotten Price’s 53-save gem vs. the Predators this season.


    Cheer for the crest on the front of the jersey, not the name on the back.

  554. HabsFanInVictoria says:

    I’ve had enough of you and your JM hating.  The guy is a good coach, and its about time you and the rest of the crazies on this site who have a hate-on for him give him some credit. 

    This “system” everyone seems to rip on him for, is working. 

  555. CharlieHodgeFan says:

    markov just frightened a lot of people.

  556. HugeHabsFan says:

    Somebody restart my heart.

    ……….. “Thank you Cammy for making my day even more amazing!” I STILL BELIEVE. I WILL ALWAYS BELIEVE.

  557. hablifting says:

    Friggen AK.  Painful to watch that guy.

  558. sidhu says:

    We used to have this one goalie who played awesome in the playoffs, he also used to flash his glove that way.. wonder what his name was…

  559. HardHabits says:

    You didnt know? Timo’s leading the parade!!!

  560. smiler2729 says:

    What did you expect? He’s a former Toronto Maple Leaf next-great-one-that-never-came-up and his job may be on the line if the Caps choke this season again.

  561. JasonM says:

    Another 20 minutes. Just another 20 minutes guys!

  562. Harditya_CareyPrice says:


  563. badangel says:

    hehe I pray the Caps choke on Wednesday .. hopefully they feel fear and they aren’t confident…

    I just want to be prepared… cause.. once the Habs beat the Caps.. defy all logic in the series .. they will be capable of anything. Great team with enormous fight in them.

    This year. I am proud – no matter what happens on Wed :) They are winners

  582. Mattee. says:

    Anybody else catch that Mckenzie stat? Something like 35 diving calls made all regular season and only 3 of them being called without a coinciding tripping penalty. We got 2 in one game. Coincidence?

    Andrew didn’t post for awhile now. Does this mean he’s already in the streets turning over cars and punching people wearing Cap jerseys in the face?

  591. andrewberkshire says:


  592. Bill says:

    Can you really send Subban down after that? He gives the Habs another dimension with his puck-moving skills … he’s just as good on the rush as Markov, and considerably faster. MAB was a non-factor, which was an improvement over his negative factor recent starts, so if Spacek is ready, sit MAB down and give PK the keys to the PP. Sorry Hamilton, but I think I just found my new favourite Hab.

    Just curious…

    Whay is Hammer on for the last 30 seconds of both periods. Was JM watching game 4?

  594. Fagstein says:

    50 saves for Halak. A personal best in the National Hockey League.

  595. habs-hampton says:

    Tim Peel did 2 games in this series. What are the odds?  He also did the game against Carolina where Saku almost had his eye carved out (no call) which turned the series around… and he’s done lots in between. I bet we’re winning maybe 1/4 of the games he does.

  627. Chris says:

    What an absolutely tremendous performance by Halak tonight.  Not only did he make all those saves, many of them of the spectacular variety, but he also exuded supreme confidence.  I have never before seen Jaro don that “You better do something superhuman if you want to score on me!” aura…but it sure did look good on him!  :)

    That was unfortunate. How awesome would this have been as a 50-plus-save shutout in the playoffs? It was inevitable, though, with a tired team on the PK after an icing.

    They miss a holding the stick call on the Caps and bang, they score.  Pathetic.

  649. cmac says:

    Regardless of how this year’s playoffs pans out, I like the core of our team and the youth that we have going forward. We finally have the type of players we need, to match the system that our coach wants to implement. And Subban is soo solid.

    One thing I’m wondering though, why is Elliotte Friedman so sure that Halak will leave Mtl? Any ideas Boone?

  650. sidhu says:

    Fehr is a Habs killer.

    Varly just gave up a huge rebound — we need to take shots from everywhere against him, he’s not on his game at all.

  651. Norm0770 says:

    I would agree that his attitude needed an adjustment earlier in the year, but since he has gotten back to the big club, he has improved.  Playing 3-4 minutes is Martin’s decision, and pehaps a wrong one.  He isn’t a defensive liability, like Bergeron.  He can kill penalties which Bergeron and Darche don’t.  He also has better hockey sense than Bergeon and is more skilled than Darche

    He has definately made mistakes and not endeared himself to Martin, but I don’t think he is a floater.  He flourished undar Dale Hunter in London, and a floater couldn’t do that.

    I’m not in the room. I am not on the bench. I am not the coach. I don’t know JM, but given his experience, I can’t imagine him consigning a kid to the doghouse unless there is a compelling reason to do so. So what gives? Someone help me understand the Trouble With Sergei, because frankly I don’t see it on the ice.

    Maybe it’s because I don’t have cable?

  702. HardHabits says:

    You forgot, “McGUYer!”

  703. TripleX says:

    Why was O’Byrne in the doghouse?  SK has to make an impression with six minutes of ice time a game.  SK has to perform knowing ONE defensive mistake will mean the bench and pressbox.  Try playing under those circumstances and succeeding.

    Many experts are jumping on SK for one series which lead to a goal.  It seemed SK was frozen and lost.  HE WAS!  He played a total of 1:12 in the first period and now he is at the end of a LONG shift and facing Ovi.  Does he stay at the point or rush down to cover the forward?  He has no idea because JM has stripped him of all his confidence and everything that comes naturally to a gifted player by years of playing is destroyed by doubt.

    I believe SK is a legitimate top six forward who can score 30 goals and put up 40 to 50 assists.

  704. TripleX says:

    Who cares dude?  It is a non issue and silly.  Get over it the kid is hardly traumatized by it.

    …  from Elliotte Friedman ( 30 Thoughts ) …..          ………. 

    12. Prediction: No matter what happens with the Canadiens tonight – or afterward, should they beat Washington – Jaroslav Halak will not re-sign there unless Montreal makes an obscene offer.

    25. Biggest reason for the Devils’ drop? Look at the players they’ve lost for nothing in the past decade: Scott Stevens, Scott Niedermayer, Ken Daneyko, Scott Gomez, Brian Gionta, Alexander Mogilny, Bobby Holik (the first time). It’s hard to replenish that talent. ( same can be said of the Habs under Gainey ).

    Also this from Elliotte Friedman (30 Thoughts)  

    14. Wherever Carey Price is next year, I hope the organization has the sense to pair him with a veteran who will teach him the right way to prepare and act. Not doing so is Montreal’s greatest mistake of the past five years.

  716. SlovakHab says:

    I absolutely disagree with the last remark that the same can be said of the Habs under Gainey. 

    Who the F. wants Ryder, Komisarek, Souray, Kovalev or Huet back? Who that left as a FA is missed here?

    And we got Cammy, Gio or Gill for nothin’ as well. Not that we traded them for a couple of 1st rounders.

  717. Rugger says:

    Halak is an RFA correct?  It doesn’t matter how small the Habs offer is as long as it is qualifying.  If someone offers an obscene contract, we take the picks, if not we bump our offer enough to avoid arbitration but certainly not obscene.

  718. SlovakHab says:

    Which is confirmed by how nicely Tuukka Rask has been developing with Tim Thomas.

  719. itpf says:

    I don’t think prediction 12 has any merit… If they offer him a decent contract he’ll sign. It doesn’t have be  an obscene contract. For one, Halak’s game has been way up and down. Secondly, he’s an RFA. Third, it’s a huge risk  for any team to offer him an obscene contract  and I don’t think any other team would, so why would montreal need to?

  726. SlovakHab says:

    I know what the thought was, Albert

    As if Stevens/Niedermayer/Gionta/Gomez/Mogilny/Holik were in the same league as our players that went the UFA route. We didn’t lose nearly as much talent as they have lost, and have replaced it well. Thet haven’t, and that’s the whole point. Whether you trade a good player at the deadline or replace him with a good player on July 1st, you are doing well, as long as your team is competitive every season and dosn’t get worse.

  732. Go Habs Go Theme Song Guy says:

    Let me add this to the rules for tonight. 

    No Ole Ole Ole or Na, na, na, na until we’re up 5 goals with one minute to go.


  733. Former Jets Fan says:

    Just as John Carlson has been outplaying Mike Green, and logging critical end-of-game minutes, here’s to hoping PK can have a similar impact.  It’s not so far-fetched – except maybe the end-of game minutes part as the Habs will be ahead at crunch time and not in need of instant-offence.

    If that’s the case, Jacques Martin will have the opportunity to confirm or dis-confirm that adage – once you go black, you never go back ;)

  734. JasonM says:

    Sorry Boone, I won’t be cheering for a team going out in the first round. Not when there’s not a whole lot the team can do in the off-season to do better. I may be unrealistic but I will settle with no less than seeing some Ovechkin tears.


    Looking froward to the game… and Subban!!!

    You read my mind

  765. HardHabits says:

    Man the crowd is into it.

  766. Danno says:

    Why do the refs not call a penalty when they do it?


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

  767. T-roy West says:

    The one thing this team always does is let the other team get back into the game by handing them a goal. Lets not do that tonight boys. Keep up the pressure.

  768. SlovakHab says:

    Unreal. I do not recognize this team.

    Don’t include Markov in that group :)



    Never judge another man’s decision poor until you actually have proof of it failing!

  772. JasonM says:

    That was pretty to look at.

    Sorry, that one is down

  774. Chorske says:

    I have them even on faceoffs, 10 apiece

  775. JasonM says:

    That’s the best I’ve seen Lapierre play all season.

  776. WarHero says:

    Great shift by the grinders!!

  777. dpthehabsfan says:

    Halak has looked so much calmer this game and the last, then he did in the first two. Which is good.

  778. HardHabits says:

    I luv they way the Habs are crashing the net.

  779. Matt_in_TO says:

    Gotta love Gomez coaching like that

  780. Keith says:

    Pouliot just isn’t having a good playoff. Pyatt deserves his ice-time.

  781. Habscore says:

    Gomer talking strategies with Laps!!! I looovve Gomez!!!!!!!

    agreed! Ferocious but not stupid!

  784. HugeHabsFan says:

    Is this a feed to watch the game?

    ……….. “Thank you Cammy for making my day even more amazing!” I STILL BELIEVE. I WILL ALWAYS BELIEVE.

  785. topher5468 says:

    Just MAB,  he is awful. I think Hamr can still have a good game

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

  786. SlovakHab says:

    Yes, but u’ll need to install ‘Veetle’.


    B.Burke is building the Bruins through the draft.

  787. Chuck says:

    Mmmmm… red wine…


    Cheer for the crest on the front of the jersey, not the name on the back.

  788. Habscore says:

    OH HAPPY DAY!!!!!!!!!!! (Red wine talking)

  789. sidhu says:

    Ovy and the Caps should be ashamed that this is even an issue:Stubbs tells me
    the Canadiens will have both flag-bearers on the Canadiens side until
    Ovechkin does his cross-ice sprint and sits his annoying *** down on the
    Washington bench.”

    In other words, the organization has to protect a kid from the routine of a grown man and his inability to accord respect to a kid.

    Many people have come out defending Ovy as a fun loving guy who plays hard and that this routine is part of that MO.  I don’t buy it.  His attitude and goals don’t somehow sanitize his disrespectfulness for this kid.  Moreover, if it was Lapierre, or Carcillo, or Neil doing that, you know everyone would be quick to condemn the very same action.

    I’ve also heard people say, oh the kid must have been so popular at school.  How do you know that?  It’s pure speculation.  In any ways, his reaction does not alter the underlying nature of Ovy’s conduct.  If Sidney Crosby came into a store and stole a pack of gum, do you think the fact that the storeowner has a story to tell somehow changes whether what Sidney did was right or wrong?  Absolutely not.

    It is what it is — Ovy is a douche.  Talented yes, exciting yes, but a complete douche.

  790. Danno says:

    Brother you’re right. You’re right. You’re right. You’re right. You’re sooooooooo right.


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

  791. Chorske says:

    I think the Caps, having lost two at home, are probably REALLY not wanting to lose tonight.

    I’ve been a gloomy gus about this series since the beginning, and today is no different. But if the Habs win tonight, the Caps will have to be thinking about how an 8th seeded team has given them horrible fits in their own end, and forced them to change goalies. They will be thinking about the guys they are missing and the guys who are missing in action. They might be wondering what it takes to beat Halak when he is on his game.

    If I am the Caps, I REALLY REALLY want to end it here, tonight.

    LET’S GO HABS! If you have to go down, go down fighting! Or hell – WIN! Whatever works!

  794. Les-Habitants says:

    Ok, I have to admit:  I’m pretty excited to see PK in the lineup.  He’s paired with Hammer to start, have MAB on the 4th line.  

    It’s going to be a good game!!!

  795. crabvader says:

    Stelio Kontos!

  796. WarHero says:

    Another great save from Jaro :)

    In trouble fast.

  798. JasonM says:

    Referee DOWN the ice “sees” a penalty. But the one 15 feet away sees nothing.



  799. WarHero says:

    Comon boys, get those legs moving!

  800. WarHero says:

    I love the addition of PK! This will give JM another man to use in place of Hamrlik later on in the game. I love Hammer, but you can really see the toll al those minutes at the start of the year have taken on him. GO HABS GO!!

  801. Shiloh says:

    What crap. The ref ten feet away let it go but the guy 60 feet away called it.

  802. JasonM says:

    This is it boys. Make it 7!

    Well, good! Game six facing elimination is hardly the right time to mix things up and try something new uh never mind

  807. CharlieHodgeFan says:

    Look at the head and eye movement from our guys. Too often in the long season, the NHL is talent against lethargy. No one’s sleeping tonight (except maybe Sergei upstairs). This game’s talent against talent.

  808. rut1212 says:

    These are penalties by the book, but this is the playoffs…

    WTF!! lol, that was a dive though, but that stuff never gets called.

  815. JasonM says:

    He gets a DIVE? Wow.


    What about the fact he didn’t have the puck?

  816. dpthehabsfan says:

    Nice dive Max.

  817. Hockey Socks says:

    Make-up call.

  818. rut1212 says:

    Gotta agree with that call.

    Well .. perhaps … dammit Laps!

    Bench him. Dress SK74. Never let him on again. AND WHAT A SAVE!!!!!

  825. Mattee. says:

    Allright. That’s it. I’m a Halak supporter. 

  826. Just A Guy says:


  827. Keith says:

    Halak!!! Fucking awesome!! Sign him!!! There I said it!!!

  828. zozotheclown says:

    Giving them so many great looks, but Halak is dominating!
