Liveblog: Anyone expect that?

The Canadiens head into All-Star weekend on a high with a resounding 7-2 win over the number one team in the league.

Max Paciorety made franchise history by scoring the 11,400th home-ice goal … to make it 5-0 in the second period.

This game illustrated why no sane person bets on sports.

The parade will follow its usual route: from the Bell Centre to the Douglas Hospital


  1. Phil C says:

    Everyone in the rink knows what Cole is going to do when he comes down that right wing…and they still can’t stop him. No deception required when you are a beast. Left-defensemen must HATE playing against him.

  2. EricInStL says:

    Man you can tell RC wanted to smile but kept his cool.

    Good on them. Enjoy the break.

  3. Yussuf Al-Habbi says:

    and finally a win that wasn’t to 90% Prices

  4. Propwash says:

    Octopus on the ice!

    Don’t let the wultures getcha.

  5. Goggles Pizano says:

    Yes it’s early but I think the Cammalleri trade was a good one for the Habs so far.

  6. BLACK ICE says:


  7. RockinRey says:

    Cole is the MVP of the season without a doubt! This guy has been a horse. Even tonight when teh game was blowout and as Boone pointed out he was a playing like it was 1-1. Kudos to Cole for bringing it this year!

  8. EricInStL says:

    No Chez Parée for Detroit…..

  9. SUMO says:

    Get DD on for an empty-netter! go for 8!

  10. PrimeTime says:

    Love that goal…..all hard work earned.

  11. durocher says:

    Nice play by Cole — our best player this season aside from Price. He doesn’t quit.

  12. Danno says:

    And #72 makes it 7-2!


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

  13. OneTimer says:

    wow Boone is so right. Cole plays with so much goddamn hustle, even though it’s 6-2 with less than 2 minutes left. What a keeper. 3 more years of this guy? Yes.

  14. Mondou6 says:

    Apropos of nothing…There was a good point about Tim Thomas from usually miserable Boston Herald writer, Ron Borges.

    Borges said that Thomas felt it was making a big statement to skip the White House visit, but that Thomas had no qualms about playing on the US Olympic team. So basically, when Thomas had something to lose, he did nothing, but when it was more convenient for him to “protest” he did.

    Basically saying Thomas is a selfish hypocrite.

  15. Propwash says:

    Cole is an ANIMAL! Love that signing.

    Don’t let the wultures getcha.

  16. temekuhabs says:

    Cole deserved that

  17. neumann103 says:

    Cole! Compete Forever!

    Eller! Such a smart kid!

    “Et le but!”

  18. BLACK ICE says:

    Yeah Cole got his goal

  19. habsfaninboston says:

    Cole just keeps going and going.

  20. Peter Young says:

    Congratulations to all the players for a wonderful team effort tonight. Sure, the Red Wings had a letdown, but our team played very well. This team is much better than most of us think it is.

  21. Mattyleg says:

    Cole deserved that.
    Man, did he deserve that.

  22. habs178 says:

    I cracked a cold one two hours before the puck dropped Boone!


  23. EricInStL says:

    no no no no no no no no

    This is not how you tank…. Jeez can we bring in players who don’t care ????

    Trade Cole, DD, Gorges, Price etc….. right now….

  24. manu07 says:

    Hopefully Habs can keep playing well after the AS break!

  25. BLACK ICE says:

    The bad news is the Habs will score no goals next game

  26. HabinBurlington says:

    Great great game tonight.

  27. HardHabits says:

    The Boone jinx is alive and well.

  28. BLACK ICE says:

    Price is 1-0 with his new pads

  29. neumann103 says:

    Gorges made a nice smart play right at the end of the PP> Kept the puck in at the blue line but didn’t pinch in for the shot

    Ericcsson was coming out of the box and if Gorges had moved up for the puck and missed, he would have been gone

    “Et le but!”

  30. RockinRey says:

    Cant agree Gomez has been good. Dont know who you are watching Mr. Boone….

  31. Phil C says:

    That’s all I can take, over to RDS.

  32. HabinBurlington says:

    Pretty smart play by plex

  33. HardHabits says:

    Habs not supporting
    each other out there this frame
    Cole is not impressed

  34. Habfan10912 says:

    Cole is a pretty good player, huh? His effort is second to none nearly every shift. Tremendous to watch.

  35. db says:

    Tsn calls 1/6 of a hockey game.. The rest is babble and silence (which is fine).

  36. Jim Edson says:

    Sean Gordon ought to know he covers the LAFFS!

    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.

  37. Mattyleg says:

    Is it just me, or do the Wings really push their luck with obstruction?

    —Hope Springs Eternal—

  38. HabinBurlington says:

    Come on keep pp going now, build on this boys, help shut up the two doorknobs in the booth

  39. Vid says:

    uh oh…detroit coming on…

  40. habsfaninboston says:

    DD almost with the hatty.

  41. joshbenn says:

    We can’t blow this big of a lead right….

  42. Mattyleg says:

    Freakin’ DD’s a stud.

    —Hope Springs Eternal—

  43. HabinBurlington says:

    Miller and Ferraro haven’t been calling any game in the third just rubbing each other up in the booth. Oh how i wish i got RDS in HD, I would switch

  44. Dulljerk says:

    This team is quite capable of losing this game.

    “Is the little dog going to yap, or is he going to bite?”

  45. habsfaninboston says:

    Boys got to ramp it up again.

  46. Adidess says:

    Yemmy out of position there

  47. axxerd says:

    Take notice of P.K’s stick. I really think his stick is too long. He can’t get it around him quick enough sometimes and has to use his body. I just noticed it once and now it’s all I can think about when I see him battling

    Newfoundland’s biggest Habs fan. Hands down.

  48. Propwash says:

    Uh oh, cue the comeback….

    Don’t let the wultures getcha.

  49. HabinBurlington says:


  50. temekuhabs says:

    Man that Helm has wheels

  51. Adidess says:

    This Blunden guy is fearless!

  52. HabinBurlington says:

    Emelin manhandled Holmstrom in front of net, love it.

  53. Mavid says:

    ass tickler…still snickering about that one….

  54. ari says:

    So jeff carter is available and has a bad contract.what is PG waiting for.gomez,weber.kristo,first and second round picks for him

  55. BLACK ICE says:

    Why was that not tripping?

  56. Mavid says:

    noooooo please do not be hurt

  57. Bill says:

    Coach benches Subban in a 4-0 game. Obviously he was dragging the team down.

    Full Breezer 4 Life

  58. Danno says:

    PK! PK!


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

  59. Propwash says:

    PK’s back.

    Don’t let the wultures getcha.

  60. Strummer says:

    Does this mean there will no paddy-cakes with PK and Price after the final siren?

  61. Lawrencetown Liquor Pigs says:

    Why does TSN let that ass tickler Gord Miller keep his job? He’s worthless at the best of times, and always runs his stupid shut out schtick. Hate the guy. Hate, hate, hate.

    Dear Mtl Canadiens,
    Please beat Boston to tie the season series. You are about to cost me three bottles of rum in a little over a year.

  62. temekuhabs says:

    Jeezus! Kaberle started that, Gomez helped, in the net

  63. olegpetrov says:

    ahh, the dreaded 6 goal lead going into the 3rd. Habs already give one away.

    Habs fan…Nuff said

  64. BLACK ICE says:

    Price should have had that!

  65. Mavid says:

    stupid jerks on TSN had to go and ruin the shut out…

  66. manu07 says:

    All started with a bad clear from Kaberle. Is he being benched?

  67. Laramy87 says:

    Gomez giveaway… benched?

  68. habsperspective says:

    Atleast we get the shutout talk out of the way!

  69. SKHab says:

    That goal was on Gomez, he needs to get the puck out.

  70. Strummer says:

    Ward and Crawford on TSN figure the Wings were just mailing it in tonight considering it was the last game before their vacation and their’s was the only game on the sked.

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

  71. manu07 says:

    Uh oh. Third period crumble. Here we go

  72. HabinBurlington says:

    Gord Miller is an idiot! Thankfully I had the opportunity to tell him that at the ACC one night a few years back.

  73. Danno says:

    Why is PK being benched?


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

  74. AK 46 is a big six footer who can play, and scores at the rate of .56 points a game.

    Why does anyone want to trade that guy, he is an asset, and is a plus player on his career even when playing with mostly a motley crew of indifferent line mates.

    • Le Jadester says:

      That’s why he should be signed for at least 3.5 for 3
      He’s our boy and we drafted him.
      I think he cares about the team.

      Pretty much R. Bourque type contract, no ?

      I like AK 46’s statement on takin’ a home town discount.
      Especially in these economic times.

      Habs, OLE !
