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.


  1. Rooster says:

    Sooo excited to see suban and marky workin the point together from now on .:

  2. habs-fan-84 says:

    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.

  3. Chuck says:

    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.

  4. kempie says:

    And that, right there, is why you sign Markov.

  5. EricInStL says:

    Oh great now they will make a run for the playoffs……….
    They will keep RC, they will keep PG, I’m drunk……..

  6. 24moreCups says:

    Now that looked like a Power Play!

  7. Stev.R says:

    A Markov backed powerplay, is a dangerous powerplay

  8. Bill says:

    Markov DOMINATED that 5 on 3. What we’ve been missing …

    Tiens, calisse.

    Don’t let the wultures getcha.

  10. HabinBurlington says:

    Markov! Best passer on the team

  11. jedimyrmidon says:

    Markov to Subban, he scores!!!

  12. habbernack says:

    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

  13. Propwash says:

    Well, would you lookit that……

    Don’t let the wultures getcha.

  14. HardHabits says:

    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.

  15. danhabsfan says:

    A PP goal to add to this tonight… that would be nice

  16. Stev.R says:

    Why is everyone talking bout Geoffrion. Staubitz got his first point as a Hab. Anyone get that puck?

  17. Adidess says:

    The Habs portion of the crowd going crazy

  18. Kimberly2u says:

    Luongo is a loser

  19. EricInStL says:

    There was a time when I suggested the Canadiens trade Price for Luongo and Cody Hodson.

    Luongo is soft.

  20. Simon says:

    With the return of Markov, no ‘A’ for Cole…

  21. HardHabits says:

    Wow. A late 2nd period goal to tie it followed by an early 3rd period go ahead goal. Yakupov just fired his French tutor.

  22. Habsrule1 says:

    Why such an obssession on this site with former Habs? Even ones that did SFA in Montreal?

    Go Habs Go!!

    • Propwash says:

      For people to try and justify that they know better than the guys in charge of the Habs?

      Don’t let the wultures getcha.

  23. L Elle says:

    Now that’s a softie class.

  24. Chuck says:

    Man, I could smell that one from here in Burlington!

  25. 24moreCups says:

    Early one by Cole! This team is fun to watch, sometimes haha.

  27. HabinBurlington says:

    Cole! Love this guy.

  28. Propwash says:

    BOOYAA! Get in Lou’s head.

    Don’t let the wultures getcha.

  29. jedimyrmidon says:

    Another? Weird, lol

  30. Bozo McBozo says:

    The score is tied? Are Gomez and Campoli playing? If they are, apparently not enough!

  31. habsfan0 says:

    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.

  32. The Jackal says:

    Those green men are such trolls!

  33. HabinBurlington says:

    Everybody see the Yakupov hit? Wow he got clocked.

  34. punkster says:

    Say goodbye to Nail.

    ***Subbang Baby!!!***

  35. habs1966 says:

    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.

  36. kempie says:

    Notice how much less irritating CBC is without Healy bitching from between the benches?

  37. The Dude says:

    Barry Trotz is a fn genius…AK-SK look awesome in Nashville

  38. UnkleGary says:

    girouxs shoot out goal was nasty


  39. HabinBurlington says:

    If San Jose misses playoffs will they finally blow up that team? Marleau anybody?

  40. jols101 says:

    Enough PJ, get the mashed potatos out of your mouth or quite talking…

  41. Chuck says:

    After 2 periods, Markov is -1. Bench him!

  42. Peter Young says:

    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.

  43. dre1744 says:

    Bam Bam with his first as a hab!!!!!!

  44. makka83 says:

    Price haters hiding tonight?! Cowards!

  45. HabinBurlington says:

    Nice interview with Gorges, what a solid character player for the Habs

  46. UnkleGary says:

    Getting the best draft is the best way to win a cup, so before every puck drop….. But right now, GO HABS GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  47. HardHabits says:

    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!!!

  48. Roy93 says:

    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.

  49. shootdapuck says:

    Wow late one for the Habs!

    Nice change!

  50. jols101 says:

    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

  52. nova scotia vees says:

    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.

    • habbernack says:

      I can relate. I was young in Rockets last year and the indian was on the screen when the night was over

      ability is what you’re capable of doing.

  53. zak says:

    Get Eller between Pac and Cole. Plec ain’t doin it

    Hire the best regardless of language

  54. jedimyrmidon says:

    You know, the Habs have had a lot of good chances in the 2nd period.

  55. danhabsfan says:

    Boom Boom’s smiling

  56. danhabsfan says:

    There’s a hard Geffrion shot

  57. Bill says:

    That’s all Leblanc, what a sequence.

    • Le Jadester says:

      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 !

  58. JIMVINNY says:

    4th line, B*tches!!!!

  59. jedimyrmidon says:

    Geoffrion!!! Wooo!

  60. L Elle says:

    AHLer my a–


  61. 24moreCups says:

    Little Boom Boom with his 1st as a Hab!

  62. Stooof says:

    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.

  63. Habsolutely says:

    sweet. Boom Boom is smiling.

  64. durocher says:

    A beaut! Congrats!!!!

  65. HabinBurlington says:

    Bam bam!

  66. Propwash says:


    Don’t let the wultures getcha.

  67. shootdapuck says:

    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!

    • danhabsfan says:

      tell me more

      • shootdapuck says:

        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”

  68. JIMVINNY says:

    THat was a good non-call. huge dive.

  69. smiler2729 says:

    Habs deserve better in this game

    Jack Edwards is a clam, Bruins are pukes.

  70. Prairienewf says:

    Markov jumped the gun + Left assignment + No support from forwards = Kesler goal.

    • Stev.R says:

      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.

      Geoffrion scores.

  71. kempie says:

    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.

  72. jedimyrmidon says:

    Bourque off the crossbar…

  73. danhabsfan says:

    that is 2 posts the Habs hit so far
