Liveblog: Flyers beat Canadiens 4-3

PriceSave

A very bad goal at a very bad time:
Eight minutes into the third period, P.K. Subban coughed up the puck to Jaromir Jagr and Andrej Meszaros beat Carey Price with a shot from the blueline.

A few boos at the end.

    This isn’t a question of finding a PP specialist…. It is entirely strategy. Wrong players on the ice.

    L’AC will be all about LL’s time on ice.

    Gutsy effort. Price needed to be better. Particularly on winning goal.

    Doesn’t seem like a ref conspiracy now does it?

    Decent pressure on the PP

  12. durocher says:

    Talbot, karma is a b — that’s what you get for your acting towards the end of the 2nd period.

  13. Bill says:

    I’ve been arguing against a mid-season coaching change because I figured this year was a write-off.

    I was wrong. The Habs are still close to a playoff spot. And with Kaberle in, and with Markov POSSIBLY coming back, I think they’ve got the players to do something.

    Get a coach with some creativity and everything will change. The Habs’ players are better than he lets them look.

      Geoff Molson hasn’t fired Martin…and won’t..because he doesn’t want to eat the remainder of JM’s overgenerous contract. (Not to mention a $2 million early termination clause that would kick in if Martin is let go before the end of his contract.)

  14. LL-not the hockey player says:

    Talbot hehe

  15. HardHabits says:

    At this point I think JM should try the 1-3-1.

  16. kempie says:

    Does C. Lee know how to suck the fun out of a hockey game or what?

  17. Bertuzzi says:

    Leblanc’s ice time = 4:21. That’ll teach him for scoring.

  18. Captain aHab says:

    What a horseshiot call that was.

  19. Jim Edson says:

    The one, the only the incompetent Chris Lee!

    What does the Commissioner of the NHL do?

    In short, a league commissioner is the action man for the Board of Governors.

    They tell him what they want done and he works to make it happen through his subordinates while making sure that individual franchises play by the rules.

    ******** Translated if you haven’t won the Stanley Cup in 40 years your NHL team is becoming irrelevant in a sports mad city long behind MLB, NFL and NBA teams, you just tell the commissioner(who you gave a new contract at 7 plus million per) to make it happen and the rules are bent sufficiently to action the command.

    come on shortie

  21. HabinBurlington says:

    Agree with Ferraro, he says JM play Leblanc in the 3rd,, instead of riding pine

  25. Pucknut says:

    Plecks is getting a penalty. Is that something?

  26. scavanau says:

    Plenty of time left but that Cole non-goal means a lot now

  27. Bill says:

    JM’s thing is that he’s a defensive coach, right? Sacrifice offence to play better defence, because defence wins, right?

    So why do the Habs suck defensively so much?

    Well, they’ve sacrificed the offence, so he’s halfway there ;)

    Nice shift for Emelin, would have been nice if he buried one of those

    What a weird time for a change!

  30. LL-not the hockey player says:

    Next goal Habs. But who will it be? I’ll say Eller, what the heck.

  31. solomio says:

    I’ve turned it off. If they come back fine.They make some many mistakes in their own zone its almost laughable. Gotta shake your head and turn away.

    “I figure PG has one or 2 moves left to bring the Habs that extra step closer to perhaps being the best in the league.” – Einstein

  32. stephen says:

    Carey figured his defence would likely cough it up anyway, so he cut out the middle man and did it himself.

    While we are predictioning: we will turtle in 3rd and lose in shoot out. Everyone will plan the parade based on achieving another loser point.

    That said, I am having crow for dinner over Kaberle. He is really coming through. Two years ago I thought he would be a good fit, but this time around no way.

    I was wrong.

    That said, Gomez and JM still suck.

    • CanadienBoy says:

      Carbo put it best, Habs lack of fore checking on the D will be they loss as they don’t tired them ,witch they just did on George’s for the go a head goal

  35. WTF MAN
    I AM GETTING TIRED NOW

    Whenever I dont watch the Habs, they win or either lead the game

    Whenever I watch, they either lose or blow their damn lead.

    WHYYYYY

    What’s with all the dumb give-aways by the Habs.

    You can smell that one was going to happen…

    Good to see JM has benched BLunden

  41. Marc10 says:

    I think we’re only seeing 50% of what Patches has in the tank… When he turns it up to Cole’s level, DD’s sweet set ups are going to turn to gold. Come on Max! Time to wrap this one up!

  42. sCOTT1243 says:

    Wow team not sitting back right now….Is JM ok?

    Hate those slashing penalties (except that one against flyers), but getting out of control..you touch a guys stick and you get a penalty. Weak. 2 hander and it breaks, worth 2 min, hit the guy’s stick and it falls out of his hands, should not be a penalty.

    Lets win this one habs!

    • LA Loyalist says:

      It’s a little weird. You are either responsible for your stick (keeping it down, holding it tightly) or you’re not. Can’t have it both ways. I remember always being on the 6 year olds “hard on your stick”.

      The NHL guys should be competent to hold their sticks tightly. I don’t want the NHL to turn into euro-weeny soccer, where every play is a dive.

  43. durocher says:

    Has Emelin played a shift in the third?

  44. HabinBurlington says:

    Oh AK, why or how

  45. Malreg says:

    2 more assists for Kaberle tonight. Would have been 3 if our goal was not disallowed.

  46. 1973Habs says:

    Another bad call by Chris Lee, this one against the Flyers, for a change.

  47. Paulin98C says:

    3rd slashing penalty for Couturier…

  48. durocher says:

    A slash shouldn’t be called unless the opponent’s stick breaks. Otherwise a player can hold the stick lightly and allow it to be knocked out with a tap.

  49. HabinBurlington says:

    Yikes, reffing is brutal

  50. durocher says:

    New nickname for Eller: “foreplay.” He has a lot of good moves, but no finish

  51. TOEmastro says:

    Reffing aside, this has been a great game

  54. Gerry H says:

    No wonder Kaberle struggles a bit defensively. Anyone else notice how freaking short his stick is? That’s a real liability for a defenseman. No reach, no poke check.

  55. riddler says:

    I’m in love with the grand marnier cartoon chick in the white bikini!?

  56. CanadienFanTrappedinNiagaraFallsNY says:

    For the Lars Lovers, the kid has played a bad game, some TO’s, mishandles, etc. I like Eller alot, but while we rip Plek a new one, let’s not anoint this kid yet.

    PS, BTW I own BOTH of their jerseys. And who else owns an Eller jersey, seriously? lol

  57. 86ontheice says:

    Whoever predicted Leblanc would score tonight, please predict a Habs win!!

  58. HabsFanMTL says:

    unfortunately …..Jm and Pg made this team up with a bunch of whimps …..who eat face washes without retaliation…….the D sit back and watch…….i’m sick of this passive team. Just sick of it ….no guts……get rid of Hal Gill…….6’8 250 pound giant won’t even check a player in front of our net…….the big pussy cat get rid of this useless Pylon

  59. Boomer says:

    dont agree with the penalty called against desharnais, everytime we get that ref theres always suspicious calls against us. he hates mtl lol

    Boom baby!

    • 86ontheice says:

      Pleks goal disallowed…then minutes later Philly scores a similar goal and it counts. I’m still POed at Letangs goal that should have never counted!!!!!

  60. GomezForPresident says:

    man Cammalleri looks absolutely horrible, same with plekanec… i mean its nice that plekanec is great defensively but you could pay me 5 million a year to play the PK and eat up minutes and i’d be more then happy…. MOREEE LARS ELLER

    For every goal that Scott Gomez scores, I will donate 5 dollars to the Boston Bruins medical staff

  61. 1973Habs says:

    Chris Lee on the phone with Bettman during 2nd intermission “OK, boss…what should I do in the 3rd?”

  62. Da Hema says:

    Can we just double-shift the Cole-Desharnais-Pacioretty line this upcoming period? Montreal needs to win this game.

  63. novahab says:

    Message to Cammy and Pleks you better break out the needle because you are a step behind in this league. For that matter the hell with it HGH, Steroids , uppers and what ever. The NHL doesn’t gives a GD about drugs and if the Habs what to win they better get on the band wagon.

  64. HabCez says:

    we never use to get dirty goals..
    Ryan Smith was good at standing in the front of the net and getting dirty goals.. Cole.. wow.. just getting better at it.. this is something i didnt expect from him..

    and i remember the days the Flyers were the kings of ‘dirty goals’ when they played us in the regular season and playoffs..

    “Emelin’s the real deal.”
    – HabCez

  65. 4 on 4 to start the third… we’d better be tight and angry otherwise Lee will make it a 5 on 3 for Philly. HBO’s watching…

    Don’t wanna interrupt the critiquing of the reffing, but Cammalleri? Are ya kiddin’ me? Let this guy watch a couple from the press box. He’s just baaaaaaaad!!

  67. V says:

    Keeping Cole off power play to start the season is paying dividends… he is hungry and on fire.

  68. habstrinifan says:

    PLEASE PLEASE JM…. dont spoil this game by having them SIT back. Deploy the right players.

  69. Da Hema says:

    Finally we score the dreaded late-period goal.

  70. tony d says:

    Loving Cole, he brings it every game. Our D is still brutal in our end, coverage is just awful. Carey’s gonna have to stand on his head to bail them out of the 3rd.

    • habstrinifan says:

      No…. I think the boys are gonna be at least on equal terms tonight. I dont know how the game will turn out cause Flyers are playing too…. but this is what hockey is about.

      GO HABS GO!!!!!

  71. twilighthours says:

    On another note: is there anyone left on earth who still thinks Gomez is better than desharnais?

  73. novahab says:

    They review our goal but not the Flyer’s goal which shouldn’t have counted. Is there a worst ref on the planet than Lee. Hey JM see no Cammy or Pleks on the PP and you score. How does Molson pay this guy we the fans call it and takes him over a half a game to glue in.
