    ” let’s all switch to the football game” Hey Boone who ya got for the Alabama-LSU game? I know it isn’t related to the Habs, but I was just wondering.

  4. zozotheclown says:

    MUST score here, couple make-up calls

  5. LTHF says:

    Would there be a ballet performer that the Habs could get that would be tougher and quicker on D than Gill

  6. durocher says:

    Atta boy Gio

  7. Kythehabsfan says:

    That’s me on the camera tonight. How am I doin?

  8. HabsInHamilton says:

    Finally a PP! At the rate the refs were handing us penalties I figured they’d get Gomez in the box soon!

  9. novahab says:

    Torella is pissed he yelled at the refs hey it said right here in the script Habs get no PP untill were up by 5 with less than 4 minutes to go in the game.

  10. Habbu says:

    Ah boys, boys,get a hold of yourselves you just called a penalty on a blueshirt…….oh well mistakes happen

  11. Rysterr says:

    Fu**in toronto refs

  12. Chuck says:

    What’s the over/under on the even up call?

  13. HardHabits says:

    Now watch the refs call another Habs penalty within the next 30 seconds to make it a 4 on 4.

  14. dallyd31 says:

    My God…all that and the first Habs PP comes because Gio steps on the puck. How are these refs in the NHL ?

  15. Propwash says:

    Seriously, for a sec there, I was certain they were gonna call that on us.

    is this a joke…candid camera right?

    second place is just the first loser

  17. PrimeTime says:

    Daddy Campbell @ TOR BOS game in an unofficial capacity.

  18. zozotheclown says:

    Refs cut us some slack there, Gionta stepped on the puck

  19. JIMVINNY says:

    I don’t believe it.

  20. FINALLY!
    FINALLY ONE CALL FFS.

  21. habsfaninboston says:

    Wow! They finally called one.

  22. durocher says:

    What a joke — funny thing is Gio tripped on the puck

  23. habsfaninboston says:

    Nice take down Price!

  24. durocher says:

    I’m surprised they called that offsides

  25. Timo says:

    Heh, looked like Pleks was saying… “I was thinking of passing the puck but then I saw it was you and I was like… naah” :)

  26. JIMVINNY says:

    Wow. I’ve never seen someone’s legs fly out from under them like that when the contact is at the other end of their body.

  27. EricMelvin says:

    “Hello? Columbus? Have I got a deal for you! Young up-and-comer named Gomez…What? Yeah, Gomez…Hello?…….Hello?”

  28. novahab says:

    Are you kidding me if I was the coach I woud have my hands around that Striped assholes throat.This is another Carolina jole wher they got 11 powerplats and the Habs 0. Ok Boone it time for the Gazette to man up and write the truth about this joke. Call the NHL out have a pair.

  29. durocher says:

    Since C-Bus is struggling and will need to shake things up, we should pry Umberger from their roster.

  30. Danno says:

    That prick Peel is a criminal. The FBI should investigate him for game fixing.

  31. Chris says:

    Brian Gionta…

    2010-11: 1 goal in his first 14 games
    2009-10: 3 goals in his first 5 games, then 1 for his next 9 games
    2008-09: 2 goals in his first 15 games
    2007-08: 1 goal in his first 7 games

    Brian Savage, he is not. :)

  32. JayBee says:

    Can’t stay out of the box.

  33. Propwash says:

    I blame Gomez.

    I can’t even believe these fuckin refs. If this game was at the bell centre there would be stuff thrown on the ice.

    • Habso says:

      So let me get this straight mods, “pisser”, as in “man what a pisser” gets deleted, yet you deem this appropriate to leave. Keep up the good work, just don’t be surprised when you hear about the litigation that’s going to occur.

  35. kempie says:

    Yeah. Lemme know when the penalties start to “even up”. What is is 7-0 now? 8? F*** **.

  36. Habbu says:

    C’mon ….. gave it up way too easy then to recover has to take a penalty

  37. Ali says:

    apart from maybe the CFL, the NHL has, by far, the worst reffing of the major sports.

  38. Wow refs, you guys are pricks.

  39. TOEmastro says:

    penalties are at what now? is it 8 or 9?
    Olé, olé, olé oleé

  40. durocher says:

    Pleks was cross-checked in the slot, no call.

  41. Propwash says:

    Lundqvist is a rebound machine

    palujah … 1-0 dogs

    Hire the best regardless of language

  43. Habbu says:

    Gio just doesn’t seem himself

  44. tote-road says:

    Avery screws up an odd-man rush

    Avery? Didn’t Rocket whip his ass? Or Roy Dupuis? Komi? Maybe it was Josh Gorges.

  45. habsrpast says:

    ELLER doesn’t belong in the NHL.
    HE’S HORRIBLE DEFENSIVELY!

  46. HNS says:

    These officials must be some of Bettman’s retarded nephews.

  47. JayBee says:

    PK’s struggling offensively, but I think his defensive game is pretty underrated this year. Still needs to get better though.

  48. TOEmastro says:

    I guess holding the stick isn’t on the books anymore
    Olé, olé, olé oleé

  49. Matt. says:

    oh my my does Columbus suck. last game for their coach and GM. got to be

  50. LL says:

    Another bullshit penalty.

    F the refs

  51. Habso says:

    Refs are letting the habs know, they’re not supposed to win this game. Just absolutely pathetic.

  52. JIMVINNY says:

    Another shit call. that should have been called both ways without question.

  53. Chuck says:

    Ranger hockey: hold stick, then fall over.

  54. HUDSONHAB says:

    EFFIN REFS!!!!

    ….Hab4life….

  55. durocher says:

    Callahan should not be in the game

  56. JayBee says:

    Right after a frigging goal. FFS!

  57. zozotheclown says:

    Refs didn’t like that goal

  58. TOEmastro says:

    holding the stick? nope? okay

    Olé, olé, olé oleé

  59. Timo says:

    Habs should win the pushover of the year award. Do whatever you want to this team, at any level and… there will be no consequences.

    • ZimHabwe says:

      The Rangers are completely not a better team. They have just had more momentum with the number of penalties we’ve taken. Why?
      Because the Rangers are a bunch of humpty dumptys and their milking it tonight. As for the refs, maybe they can’t even see the white jerseys tonight with all the dim lighting in the bleachers and the ice fully reflecting in their eyes. That’s my scientific theory. My non scientific theory……. well, you don’t want to know my non-scientific theory.

  60. tote-road says:

    Every NHL player who grew up within 100 k of Montreal has a big game when their team comes to town. Nice to see MaxPac stick it to his boyhood team. We don’t get much of that.

  61. durocher says:

    Perfect vet play by Gio

  62. Laramy87 says:

    4 shots, 2 are massive rebounds, Henrik is not good today

  63. Propwash says:

    There ya go!
    Watch Peel call it a no goal….

  64. zozotheclown says:

    Well that was kind of perfect

  65. Chuck says:

    Patches = MONEY.

  66. durocher says:

    Comeback!

  67. stephen says:

    Claiming Martin showed no emotion in the face of such dubious reffing is a bit unfair.

    I saw at least 3 shoulder shrugs.

  68. habsrpast says:

    I’m so sick of the habs NEVER READY TO START A GAME.
    is it coincidental that JM is the coach of a team NEVER PREPARED!
    FIRE JM NOW!
    it’s embarrassing!

  69. JayBee says:

    This team will only go as far as Price can take it, period.

  70. kempie says:

    “Benoit Brunet predicts penalties will even up.”

    Don’t hold your frickin breath.

  71. novahab says:

    Fix fix fix fix fix fix case closed.

  72. ClaytonM says:

    I hope their bookies can get the refs their winnings in time for a nice night out. NYC is magical this time of year.

    Come on, OWS, interrupt the game for a forfeit win.

    Ken Dryden For NHL Commissioner

  73. ZimHabwe says:

    If the Habs do not give away a penalty in the second, I say we’ll win this game.

    Yes, I stay optimistic.

  74. terrygain says:

    Go Martin Go

    • ffenliv says:

      I don’t know where you’ve been, but over the years Leafs fans have gone NUTS to get Ron Wilson fired. It has been pretty much constant, except in the rare periods of good play.

      The number criticizing Burke are fewer, because he has a bit of a personality cult going, but there have been a LOT of incidents that had fans calling for his head.
