You are here: Home » News » OK, this is officially BAD!!
Three straight shutouts.
First time since 1949.
18 SoG on home ice.
Booed off the ice.
Looking forward to the playoffs?
…every team has its peaks and valleys …obviously We are at the lowest point …maybe even down the artesian well
…but, We have also seen this same group play way beyond Their natural abilities
…so, as The Great Stromboni used to say …get a GRIP ! Habs Fans
Habitant means PASSIONATE HOCKEY
Here’s a QUESTION: Has JM ever made Gomez a healthy scratch this season?? Better yet….any way we can make JM a healthy scratch?
Did you see him laughing it up on the bench? I think he should have to pay back every cent of the tickets that I’ve bought this season – just embarassing how little he puts into the game
BTW, please place a log-out link somewhere on the menu strip/nav links, thanks.
Can PK play left wing?
Goaltending – check
Defence – check
Offense – checked out
Does this really surprise anyone?
We knew that our boys were destined to not only be the 8th seed but to make the last game of the year to be the deciding game.
Pleks is just awful, I mean, real bad. Fell over twice on the last shift and the second time threw up his arms & stomped to the bench.
You’re vendetta to belittle Plekanec to boost Gomez is extremely pathetic.
You’re welcome to read my mind but you have to read it properly. I didn’t say Pleks sucked, I said he’s awful — playing awfully. Means if Pleks is playing bad we are screwed because that’s all our best playing awful.
Ya, he’s no Gomez right VancouverHab?
Should JM pull Price with about 3 minutes left? I mean, it’s not like this team is going to score 5-5, might as well give the team more time to try and score 6-5.
They had a second chance but fanned on it!
…..My empire is crumbling, my international sponsors are deserting me, my authority is questioned, I am held in contempt wherever I go.
Who am I: Mohamar Ghadaffi or Gary Bettman.
I know there is nothing to cheer for but the Bell Centre needs to help them out…make noise!
Not much fun right now. Thank goodness for beer.
a worse embarrassment than thursday! fire gainey/gauthier! listen to marinaro on team 990 after this disgrace if hes announcing.
keep thumbs downing – this team built by idiots!
Leafs offense is better than ours…
I agree that we’re missing Max-Pac…but this is pretty sad.
no kidding kessell 30, lulimen and grabovski 28 each. keep insulting me for saying gauthier and gainey are 2 frauds!
If the Leafs had Price they would be in 1st place
“A fanatic is one who can’t change his mind and won’t change the subject”–Winston Churchill
Well they do have Reimer, who was drafted by JFJ. How come all of Burke’s goaltending saviours are frauds? Oh wait, he thought Dan Cloutier was a star.
easy night for Holtby…
Awful, just awful. Heads are up their asses. I’m off to bed.
As crap as we have played…only down 1-0. Go habs Go, pull a miracle!
It’s really not going to happen, wow.
Full Breezer 4 Life
It’s obvious. They’re all playing ‘hurt.’
RDS = Rarely dothey score
TSN = They scored none
CBC=Cherry bashes Canadiens.
you try it….
did i do it right?
NBC = No Body Cares
I’m talking about their shows. not you
didnt think you would get it, oh well.
Last time the Habs were shutout 3 games straight….
October 23,27,29 in 1949.
0-0 shutout tie vs Bos
2-0 shutout loss vs Tor
1-0 shutout loss vs Det
I am trying to work the jinx here by mentioning SHUTOUT a lot !!!
Wow! Boone was just in diapers then.
Say what you want—it’s been a solid defensive effort by the Habs against an aggressive Caps team.
Well, it was basically Price that kept them in it. Not that it did any good…
Bell Centre sounds like a morgue.
Bell Centre sounds like the ACC
Looks Like Braden Holtby Going for that SHUTOUT
trying the CBC way of cursing a shutOUT
try it with me …
”Playing goal is like being shot at.” – Jacques Plante
This has nothing to do with JM, LOL
Just saw the first goal highlight — Pleks & Moen: Ouch.
Awesome shot by Halpern from the Standing Room Section in Cornwall.
Is somebody in charge on this team. I like Gio but he has to light a fire with this bunch ASAP.
This is a classic case of post-traumatic stress disorder.
i’m not making any more comments during the game as long as this stupid “newer comments” feature is around…
We need more Mara’s haha. Hey, he can shoot.
Mara needs to shoot more. Good hard accurate shot
How long until Gomez takes a dumb penalty?
It’s coming. Him or Bug’s mancrush Poo Poo.
Reunite Dagenais, Ribeiro, and Ryder!
Lord, may this season not be decided by our last game… vs. Leafs… please!
Wow, this looks bad. I’d be worried if I cared more. Do they?
There is obviously something seriously wrong here. They were cruising along pretty good a few weeks ago, and all things considered with the injuries and such were having a decent season. What the hell happened?
PK had the nerve to score a hat trick against Minnesota. That’s why Martin has to put The Sissy Boy on the point on the PP on the first unit. God, he’s a stubborn idiot. Let’s not use the best offensive defenseman on the first unit. Nah, let’s go with some pansy assed overpaid bum
Any chance Mngment will fire JM before the playoffs?? If it takes them to get shutout tonight for that to happen, i hope they lose 5-0!
This isn’t JM’s fault. All of our top players are out of gas.
What would you do?
Out of gas?? Washington is the team that’s playing back to back road games.
Wtf is with the refs? Whispering sweet nothings to Gio?
Nothing to worry about people. I’ve heard that Gomez is really good in the last 3 games of the season, ya know.. when it really counts 🙂 lol
Pathology alert. Pleks gives the puck away to start the PP, and the CBC colour commentator say that it was … Scott Gomez.
What the hell did Poolio do this time to be benched?
Chillin like MacMillan, potty-boy says he’s L. B. Potter, esq.
Moronic penalty and contributing nothing in the game, same as the last 10x.
– I shall always remember Captain Koivu. Habs and Hockey.
Like Plekanec last game, you mean?
Pleks is clearly injured, what’s Pouliot’s excuse except permanent brain-freeze when the pressure is on to do something?
That guy is done in the NHL.
Nothing…that’s the problem.
The only interesting answers are those which destroy the questions. ~Susan Sontag
Jacques Martin Rule #3 – When in doubt, bench Pouliot.
Is there a reason PK can’t get any power play time?
com’on everyone you can do it too
Price with another game saver.
It’s only a game-saver if the Habs manage to score a couple of goals. 😉
God …help us.
Here’s a question: why does PK only get PP time at the very end of the advantage?
Depends if he was on for a shift when the penalty was called; probably wouldn’t want to play him 2 shifts in a row.
This isn’t the first time – in fact, it’s become the norm recently for PK to be on the third wave of the PP.
Maybe he’s unhappy we didn’t bring back the urologist and this is his way of showing it….
Honestly, JM is blowing it lately and there’s no excuse for it. Refusing to play PK on first-unit PP is idiotic.
plecks = the new gomez
I think it’s a fair assumption that Plek is still playing hurt. He’s consistently worked hard all year.
next habs goal scorer will be beatified
GWG = game winning gionta!
sorry, im confused, who on the habs do you think is beautiful?
beatified.. blessed and made into a saint
GWG = game winning gionta!
oh, my mistake, thanks you.
More like deified.
The observations of a seven-year-old after another failed perimeter shot: “The Canadiens are trying to score from too far away. I know those are easy to stop because I’m a goalie.”
I tried to explain to him that it was just bad luck, but he looked at me like I was an idiot and I got embarrassed.
Enough with the fancy back door plays, just get it on net. And the refusal to use Subban on the PP is just sad.
PP has gone south since Pleks is on point..
Cross check right in front to prevent a scoring chance, no call.
It’s the first time I can relate Hockey to childbirth. Waiting for the goal….painful….but you know it’s going to come eventually. lol
at least childbirth can be induced with hormones… this can’t be
My bad, more like labour. ; )
Could be huge…
I would sure hate for the Caps to get a SHUTOUT.
Roman Hamrlik is leading our team in shots. That does not bode well
yes another pp
Gomez plays awful. But Gionta is not to far…
Think Price will score Habs next goal?
On the bright side, you gotta love Carey Price. If Gauthier can get him a supporting cast …
Only reason the Habs still have a chance to get in this is – Price.
Keep it up Carey.
And man Eller and Kostitsyn …that’s what I call chemistry.
Whatever the hell happened to Gio-Gomez chemistry.
I miss Max-Pac…
Good thing the Caps are playing the second game of a back-to-back.
gomez and plecks our faceoff kings..
Pricey is certainly doing his job to keep us in it. Come on Habs! Score a bloody goal for crying out loud!
Carry Carry Carry Carrying this team!
gomez – go away!
Well Price is good.
Playing like a bunch of twats…
twits as well..
habs offence < sock full of oatmeal
Laughed hard at that one!
Whoever gave this a thumbs down – are you calling me a liar? 🙂
God Bob Cole is an idiot. That was a dangerous weak shot? WTF?
Let someone younger take the job?
Twice during the USA-Argentina match, they showed 2 guys wearing Expos caps….
Maybe the Habs should try and bunt for a goal.
