    …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

    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?

    • Doooie86 says:

      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

  3. Wayne says:

    BTW, please place a log-out link somewhere on the menu strip/nav links, thanks.

  4. habsguru says:

    Can PK play left wing?

  5. punkster says:

    Goaltending – check
    Defence – check
    Offense – checked out

    ***Subbang Baby!!!***

  6. MICP says:

    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.

  7. VancouverHab says:

    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.

  8. Mark C says:

    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.

    Boone,

    They had a second chance but fanned on it!

    I know there is nothing to cheer for but the Bell Centre needs to help them out…make noise!

  11. Keith says:

    Not much fun right now. Thank goodness for beer.

  12. observer says:

    a worse embarrassment than thursday! fire gainey/gauthier! listen to marinaro on team 990 after this disgrace if hes announcing.

  13. Leafs offense is better than ours…

    I agree that we’re missing Max-Pac…but this is pretty sad.

  14. HotHabs says:

    easy night for Holtby…

  15. Wayne says:

    Awful, just awful. Heads are up their asses. I’m off to bed.

  16. habs99 says:

    As crap as we have played…only down 1-0. Go habs Go, pull a miracle!

  17. Bill says:

    It’s really not going to happen, wow.

  18. rogieshan says:

    It’s obvious. They’re all playing ‘hurt.’

  19. EricInStL says:

    RDS = Rarely dothey score
    TSN = They scored none

    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 !!!

  21. habsoul says:

    Say what you want—it’s been a solid defensive effort by the Habs against an aggressive Caps team.

  22. Bell Centre sounds like a morgue.

  23. I_SAY_FIGHT says:

    Looks Like Braden Holtby Going for that SHUTOUT
    trying the CBC way of cursing a shutOUT
    try it with me …

  24. eric says:

    This has nothing to do with JM, LOL

  25. VancouverHab says:

    Just saw the first goal highlight — Pleks & Moen: Ouch.

  26. Exit716 says:

    Awesome shot by Halpern from the Standing Room Section in Cornwall.

  27. Wayne says:

    Is somebody in charge on this team. I like Gio but he has to light a fire with this bunch ASAP.

  28. rogieshan says:

    This is a classic case of post-traumatic stress disorder.

  29. higginrs says:

    i’m not making any more comments during the game as long as this stupid “newer comments” feature is around…

  30. We need more Mara’s haha. Hey, he can shoot.

  31. HotHabs says:

    Mara needs to shoot more. Good hard accurate shot

  32. How long until Gomez takes a dumb penalty?

  33. Hockey Socks says:

    Reunite Dagenais, Ribeiro, and Ryder!

  34. Hockey Socks says:

    -double-

  35. HotHabs says:

    Lord, may this season not be decided by our last game… vs. Leafs… please!

  36. Wayne says:

    Wow, this looks bad. I’d be worried if I cared more. Do they?

  37. Larry says:

    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?

  38. Exit716 says:

    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

  39. rbby_habs says:

    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!

  40. Keith says:

    Wtf is with the refs? Whispering sweet nothings to Gio?

  41. Flobomb12 says:

    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

  42. VancouverHab says:

    Pathology alert. Pleks gives the puck away to start the PP, and the CBC colour commentator say that it was … Scott Gomez.

  43. Bugs says:

    What the hell did Poolio do this time to be benched?

    Chillin like MacMillan, potty-boy says he’s L. B. Potter, esq.

  44. Shiloh says:

    Is there a reason PK can’t get any power play time?

  46. Price with another game saver.

  47. t1tan5 says:

    Here’s a question: why does PK only get PP time at the very end of the advantage?

  48. SeriousFan09 says:

    Honestly, JM is blowing it lately and there’s no excuse for it. Refusing to play PK on first-unit PP is idiotic.

    – I shall always remember Captain Koivu. Habs and Hockey.

  49. habs001 says:

    plecks = the new gomez

    next habs goal scorer will be beatified

  51. Bill says:

    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.

    Full Breezer 4 Life

  52. Enough with the fancy back door plays, just get it on net. And the refusal to use Subban on the PP is just sad.

  53. EricInStL says:

  54. hansolo says:

    PP has gone south since Pleks is on point..

  55. JIMVINNY says:

    Cross check right in front to prevent a scoring chance, no call.

  56. larisalapointe says:

    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

  57. Clay says:

    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

  60. Wops says:

    Gomez plays awful. But Gionta is not to far…

  61. habsguru says:

    Think Price will score Habs next goal?

  62. Bill says:

    On the bright side, you gotta love Carey Price. If Gauthier can get him a supporting cast …

    Full Breezer 4 Life

  63. 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…

  64. rogieshan says:

    Good thing the Caps are playing the second game of a back-to-back.

  65. habs001 says:

    gomez and plecks our faceoff kings..

  66. Keith says:

    Pricey is certainly doing his job to keep us in it. Come on Habs! Score a bloody goal for crying out loud!

  68. observer says:

    gomez – go away!
