You are here: Home » Boone » Liveblog: Canadiens are 1-0 with Markov
Andrei Markov is back.
He picked up an assist on P.K. Subban’s power-play goal, and the Canadiens seemed inspired by his return, skating to a 4-1 win.
Sooo excited to see suban and marky workin the point together from now on .:
I’ve said a couple times now, but Subban has been terrific since January. Sure he struggled the first few months of the season, but he’s been playing great hockey lately.
Absolutely man. He fought off those sophomore jitters and he showing us what hes got!
He’s been terrific since November, his “struggles” were entirely media-concocted. The media guys always write the easy story, i.e., “sophomore slump”. Subban hasn’t had one.
Full Breezer 4 Life
I’ve been dreaming about that setup for two years. Markov to a Subban one-timer on the powerplay.
Being a Hab fan is like buying real estate: only over the long-haul will you appreciate the true value of your investment.
Beautiful to see it again, really going to help this squad next year.
And that, right there, is why you sign Markov.
Oh great now they will make a run for the playoffs……….
They will keep RC, they will keep PG, I’m drunk……..
Keeping RC and PG would be a good thing.
In all honesty, RC might be ok, but the writing is on the wall for him.
Now that looked like a Power Play!
Just think if we had AM79 all year.
I forgot how good of a passer he really is.
A Markov backed powerplay, is a dangerous powerplay
Geoffrions first point as a Hab.
Staubitz’s first point as a Hab.
Markov’s first point of the year.
Aww they took Staubitz’s point away. Fucking Gorges…
Markov DOMINATED that 5 on 3. What we’ve been missing …
Don’t let the wultures getcha.
Hehe, bien dit.
Markov! Best passer on the team
Markov to Subban, he scores!!!
Marky should be on the left point as he was before he was injured. OOPS
ability is what you’re capable of doing.
attitude determines how you do it
Well, would you lookit that……
The Refs are letting them play. I am surprised that Kaberle didn’t get a penalty for having a too short hockey stick on that play.
A PP goal to add to this tonight… that would be nice
Why is everyone talking bout Geoffrion. Staubitz got his first point as a Hab. Anyone get that puck?
Nope, they gave the point to Gorges, according to Luc Gélinas. Staubitz didn’t get that point, it seems.
The Habs portion of the crowd going crazy
Luongo is a loser
There was a time when I suggested the Canadiens trade Price for Luongo and Cody Hodson.
Luongo is soft.
He’s a great goalie, but you want to talk about bad contracts …
With the return of Markov, no ‘A’ for Cole…
Wow. A late 2nd period goal to tie it followed by an early 3rd period go ahead goal. Yakupov just fired his French tutor.
Take yer pick boyo: http://minnesotaminutemen.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=2&Itemid=41
I don’t think Yakupov remembers Russian right now!
Why such an obssession on this site with former Habs? Even ones that did SFA in Montreal?
Go Habs Go!!
“Fans are great, but the quickest way to start losing is to listen to them.” – Sam Pollock
For people to try and justify that they know better than the guys in charge of the Habs?
Now that’s a softie class.
Some of these guys need detention, ma’am.
But Momtreal scored it, I can’t comprehend, only Price ever let’s those in.
Man, I could smell that one from here in Burlington!
He is not lying, verified stink!
Early one by Cole! This team is fun to watch, sometimes haha.
“You cannot petition the lord with prayer!” – James Douglas Morrison
Cole! Love this guy.
BOOYAA! Get in Lou’s head.
Another? Weird, lol
The score is tied? Are Gomez and Campoli playing? If they are, apparently not enough!
A Habs win tonight will leave them 2 points behind the Laffs. With Markov back in the lineup, by this time next week, we’ll have passed them in standings.
If Habs win… they will be 4 points behind the Laffs
Still think they’ll pass the Leafs.
That season finale between the 2 teams shaping up to be meaningful…for a draft pick.
Those green men are such trolls!
Everybody see the Yakupov hit? Wow he got clocked.
that was brutal.
Was that a Nail Fail?
And the guy that clocked him got five and a game, clearly a dirty hit
Say goodbye to Nail.
This could really hurt the Tank movement.
Nothing hurts the Tank movement. It was a Tank movement that hurt Yapukov.
Fact is it won’t matter sweet dicky doodaw who we pick even if we do get first pick. The poor kid will be ripped limb from limb by this crowd of armchair GMs within a year as they demand he be traded, then mourned by the same crew when he scores a few on another team. Rinse, repeat…
Suck likes diamonds are forever!
Nobody cares how good or bad Markov plays this season as long as he stays healthy. A healthy Makov is better than any UFA we could sign.
Notice how much less irritating CBC is without Healy bitching from between the benches?
Barry Trotz is a fn genius…AK-SK look awesome in Nashville
girouxs shoot out goal was nasty
that was a dirty dirty goal…. the monster is still looking for his jock strap
If San Jose misses playoffs will they finally blow up that team? Marleau anybody?
I like Marleau, but I think we need to go with youth…Marleau is a piece you add if you are close to the cup. We are far from that.
☞ If I agreed with you we’d both be wrong. ☜
2 years ago he would have been great, always liked him but I think you are right.
Enough PJ, get the mashed potatos out of your mouth or quite talking…
After 2 periods, Markov is -1. Bench him!
That Geoffrion goal did my heart good. I saw Boom Boom score many times. I hope Blake can improve his skating because he definitely has an eye for the goal.
He skates like Pierre Dagenais.
Bam Bam with his first as a hab!!!!!!
Price haters hiding tonight?! Cowards!
Or passed out.
Cue the Dude in 3,2,1 …
Nice interview with Gorges, what a solid character player for the Habs
Getting the best draft is the best way to win a cup, so before every puck drop….. But right now, GO HABS GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
In a tumultuous season, tonight gives Habs fans two feel good stories; Markov’s return and Blake Geffrion’s 1st goal as a Hab to make it 4 generations of goal scoring.
It’s duality people. I am not bi-polar!!!
the habs put the fun in dysfunctional.
DannyG never scored a goal as a Hab but had six points………
Where the bloody hell has this effort been all year? Win or lose this effort is fantastic! I will welcome watching my team play like this every year. From top to bottom bravo. I’d like to see this continue into next season. I think this is the kind of team we’ve been hoping for all along.
It’s the once you are out of it monkey off your back looseness. Which is why I pegged them to finish between 18th and 23rd a while back.
yup they have nothing to lose anymore so now thery can play some hockey
Wow late one for the Habs!
Loving this game. Where is all this effort comming from. They are still lacking some top end skill but if the Habs put out this effort every night we would be play off bound…
Geoffrion. From Leblanc
A new legend was born.
Vive le Canadiens
Sent from my CHphone
History! Geoffrion scores. I am proud to say that I am old enough to remember the Boomer, although, it was just the last few years of his career in Montreal. The glory days to be sure.
I can relate. I was young in Rockets last year and the indian was on the screen when the night was over
Get Eller between Pac and Cole. Plec ain’t doin it
Hire the best regardless of language
You know, the Habs have had a lot of good chances in the 2nd period.
Boom Boom’s smiling
There’s a hard Geffrion shot
That’s all Leblanc, what a sequence.
Historic goal by baby Boom Boom !
and ya, the best was the assist from Louie and the goal scored on another Montreal native goaltender.
Nice moment !
Habs, OLE !
4th line, B*tches!!!!
AHLer my a–
Little Boom Boom with his 1st as a Hab!
If gomez is back next year I am boycotting watching him. Ill close my eyes whenever he touches the puck. God is he ever bad.
Yet he has been pretty good all night. Making plays and playing strong.
Maybe I see him all wrong. But I get the vibe that he tries so hard to get the puck off of his stick… doesn’t matter where it goes. To me he is really annoying to watch, like no other player.
sweet. Boom Boom is smiling.
A beaut! Congrats!!!!
EAT IT HATERS!
CBC/HNIC are running shit scared when they came to talk contract extension for their cash cow and got blindsided by the Canadian NHL teams over a bunch of issues including TO centricity,editorial content (controlled by Maclean), distribution of national telelcasts and of course the “Moron Twins”, Cherry and Maclean!
One more season after this and the CBC/HNIC is history, they don’t have the cash to compete with the private sector in any way shape or form!
tell me more
Last BOG meeting. Head of CBC sports and Head of CBC went to do a state of the Union Type report and they were greeted with a barrage of complaints from Canada.
Talk about being distanced from their clients, they had no clue!
The cerebral insight of PJ Stock:
“Le problem est Markov n’a pas jouer un seul game cette annee”
“Louis Leblanc est un kid locale”
THat was a good non-call. huge dive.
Habs deserve better in this game
Jack Edwards is a clam, Bruins are pukes.
Markov jumped the gun + Left assignment + No support from forwards = Kesler goal.
I wouldn’t say he left his assignment. In the NHL the players are skilled enough to not be confined to one half of the ice. Players cross and switch their man all the time. Unfortunately, it could leave you vulnerable if the other team takes advantage of two players mid-switch. It’s not realy anyones fault.
Boone: From what I saw, Emelin was chasing Kesler, realized, too late that, Markov had him and couldn’t get back to Booth in time.
Bourque off the crossbar…
that is 2 posts the Habs hit so far
