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.

    LOL, Price leaves the net with the play going on to shove Burrows after he gooned Weber … love it.

    I’m glad I continue to watch the Habs, even though the season isn’t going anywhere. A game like tonight gives me hope, optimism for the future. Markov is back, our PP has looked good, and we’ve shown a lot of character and guts against a highly competitive, provocative team.

  3. danhabsfan says:

    What’s the deal with Kassian..

  4. rogieshan says:

    Who woulda thunk it? Brad Staubitz the best pickup by Gauthier. Habs have no fear now.

  5. otter649 says:

    Habs undefeated with Markov in the lineup…….

  6. The Dude says:

    Nice way to cap the season boy’s!

  7. slychard says:

    I’m gonna jump in the shower real quick (yes some of us French do shower) So I can watch the anti chambre crew. I hope they be on tonight.

    Kiss my hAbSS!!!

  8. otter649 says:

    Wonder how much Price had on the board ?

  9. Bill says:

    Look at that last save and whistle: three Canadiens between Price and the three Canucks on the outside. That’s different.

    Markov in line up = Habs win

  13. EricInStL says:

    Can it be that a fight changed the tide for the Canadiens ?

    • Bill says:

      … yeah that was it.

      Get real! Depth on the D and an awesome night for Price.

      • EricInStL says:

        Price did a lot in the 1st but then had almost nothing the rest of the way. But having Staubitz there helped give the players some room to play.

        Also crappy goaltending by Luongo helped out. For once, the opposing goalie played crap.

        Have Markov on the D helped enormously. And gave puck movement to a static PP.

    Too many positives from this game to name…can someone else do it?!

    Hey, it’s been ages since someone posted how many goals SK/AK got tonight. 🙂

  19. slychard says:

    So Markov has good movement in pivots and whatnot? He’s not looking reticent out there? Excellent.

    Kiss my hAbSS!!!

    • HabinBurlington says:

      He has some of the expected rust, but his passing has been excellent. Overall I would say a very good debut.

      • slychard says:

        Next season here we come!

        Kiss my hAbSS!!!

      • Stev.R says:

        Ya the rust was apparent on a few plays. Hesitant and a bit slower than he usually is. I bet he’ll feel real comfortable by the end of the year and he will be able get himself in real good shape for next season. I bet Kabs gets himself in real good shape in the offseason too. Pleks will crack the whip on him

    Sarcastic cheer for the easy save by Luongo …

    Markov what this team has been missing for 483 days……..

  26. savethepuck says:

    so depressing we can do this to Vancouver like we did to Detroit before the allstar break, 2 elite teams, and we are not a playoff team ffs

    Just got home from work and perused the stgats, Markov 14+ minutes, PP ass, (looks like the PP getting back on track) watching the end of the game, how’s Markov looking?

    Kiss my hAbSS!!!

    • savethepuck says:

      a little rusty as expected but I think he”ll be fine. Got a point so far, so he’s on an 82 point pace/

    The problem with the tank is that it’s overly-complicated and prone to breakdown, like a German King Tiger.

    Being a Hab fan is like buying real estate: only over the long-haul will you appreciate the true value of your investment.

    (sigh)…..Shall we kiss Mikhail adeiu?

  30. habs-fan-84 says:

    Pacioretty on After Hours, cool

  31. English is not a Crime says:

    No need to tank, the high draft picks this year look a lot scarier to the team that gets them than a couple of the next bacth of about 5 or so of them look anyway. Yakupov got rocked, Grigorenko is a head case, Galy has knee issues. I still want the Habs to slide in there with a 4-8 pick and grab that Faksa kid from Kitchener, his work ethic and his size are as big as his talent ratings, which makes him stand out as a safer pick with a higher low side even if his top end may not be as high (although it may well be too)

    Can I safely go bed thinking the boys have won. Have to be up early for work tomorrow, and we lose an hours sleep… Yikes

  34. slapshot777 says:

    I wonder can the Habs have two thirty goal scoters in one season? When was the last time that happened on the Habs ?

  35. HabFab says:

    Markov has been holding the mojo!!!!!!!!

  36. Propwash says:

    F*** YEAAAH! COLE!

    Face it, PG signing him erases a ton of any “errors” he has done.

    Don’t let the wultures getcha.

  37. Chuck says:

    Serves Kessler for diving; though he has a crummy view of Cole’s goal from 180 feet away.

    ya Cole!!!
    Career year! PG sucks though right…?

    Here comes garbage time from Vancouver, watch out boys it’s gonna be rough

  40. ZepFan2 says:

    What a check by Emelin.

    And Cole gets #25

    Haha, Kesler was still picking himself off the ice from the Emelin hit when that goal got scored … when did he turn into such a wuss?

    Beautiful goal by Cole. Second of the night.

  43. jedimyrmidon says:

    Yeeeeah! The Habs don’t need to win this game! But I have to admit, it’s a nice game (so far [they’ve blown leads like this])!

  44. Stev.R says:

    Selfish play Cole. You already have 1.

    COLE! Can you possibly not love that guy?

    So far so good with regards to Markov anyway. He looks good considering it’s been over a year since he last played. Got a point in his first game back. I’m happy.

  50. savethepuck says:

    Tuck the fank, I am much happier watching my team play well and winning than watching them lose, I don;t mind being in the minority on this one, Go Habs Go

    That’s Montreal with Markov.

  53. Stev.R says:

    Markov looking more and more comfortable with every shift

  54. shootdapuck says:

    Boone, Kesler’s problem is he is losing to what was supposed to be an easy touch!

  55. HardHabits says:

    Tank just threw out one of its caterpillar tracks.

  56. gmd says:

    Boone, Kessler always has a problem. I’ve never seen that guy crack a smile.

  57. Bill says:

    I have this bizarre feeling that the Habs aren’t going to blow this lead. I mean, I actually feel like they’re going to win. This is weird. This team feels different.

    Pacioretty wasn’t hooked or interfered with? Tripped?

  61. Kimberly2u says:

    That was all Markov. .,that pass to Subban was priceless

  62. danhabsfan says:

    Kesler is a big baby…

  63. ross says:

    Would like to see the replay, but it looked like poor Patches got hauled down hard from behind on that.

  64. Propwash says:

    See that stretch pass from Markov?

    Don’t let the wultures getcha.

  65. English is not a Crime says:

    Just curious, anyone looked up the stat on how many games the Habs have had both Price and Markov in the lineup over the past 3 seasons? Or what their record is in those games?

    Seems like an awfully small number of games for a team to have it’s two most talented players in the lineup over a 3 year span. (Markov alone has only played 8 games now in two of those years and the third one, he missed the first half of the season when Price was playing well, but the team was losing and Markov returned in the second half when the Habs opted to go with their backup for the second half so Price didn’t get many games with Markov in the lineup there either, so the total can’t be very high)

  66. shootdapuck says:

    Where are the two Green Grow idiots?

  67. Clutch10 says:

    What could have been…

  68. Bill says:

    Come on, Pacioretty was MUGGED there.

    Penalty shot?

  70. otter649 says:

    Markov must put a patent on how to pass to create a one timer shot……..

  71. Adidess says:

    This is the pairing I have always wanted to see. Markov and Subban at the blue line on the power play

  72. makka83 says:

    Honestly, they are doing this for Markov, Gorges and Price. Good to see. Play for the next season.
