Liveblog: Another blown lead

Prudential-Center

New Jersey owned the third period, scoring three unanswered goals to win a game the Canadiens had led 3-1.
The loss dropped the Canadiens 12 points out of the final playoff spot.
It just ain’t gonna happen.

Michael Blunden is shown in the pic taking a vicious hit from behind by Elias. Blunden did not return.

    What a save

  2. temekuhabs says:

    Zubrus stuck his stick out ( after he shed that girl Kaberle)

  3. gumper says:

    Price ordinary. S’pose we’ll see more of Budaj down the stretch, or will we continue to ride the thoroughbred?

  4. t1tan5 says:

    Stoppable? The puck was deflected right in front of Price by Zubrus.

  5. JF says:

    Price cannot make the big saves this season. The Devils will score again.

  6. Price has been pretty weak this game. He’ll bounce back.
    Except a loss today would seal the fact that we’re sellers.

  7. Mondou6 says:

    Habs doing a two and a half gainer into the tank…

  8. Habitant in Surrey says:

    …well, definitely that goal was the second goal tonight where Carey had no-chance

    How long do we have number 22 for? what a fu..ing joke that guy is.

  10. Bertuzzi says:

    Something something Price something…

  11. Rad says:

    Another bad goal by Price

  12. Propwash says:

    Well, the next bunch of months is gonna make for entertaining arm chair gmming.

    Zubrus deflection, he never did any of THAT when he played for the Habs

  15. JasonM says:

    Mediocre Price is simply not good enough.

  16. habsfaninboston says:

    Here we go again.

  17. Kimberly2u says:

    And that is the season

  18. Rudy says:

    Elias have any previous incidents?

  19. Mondou6 says:

    Cole is getting on the refs after that non-call…

  20. Sal says:

    A NJ win jumps them over TO…Plus Habs one step closer to lottery pick…just saying

  21. Mondou6 says:

    NHL should use English soccer points: 3 for a Win, 1 for a Tie.

    F the shootout.

    It’s stupid now that teams (us) are completely out of it at the All Star break, even if we win a bunch in row, due to all the moronic “3 point games”.

  22. Habitant in Surrey says:

    …just a beautiful Micheal Farber profile on Ken Hitchcock between periods on MSG+ …especially on personal reasons and issues of Hitch’s overeating and today’s overcoming …the turn-around partly inspired by Pat Burn’s death …and, the piece even more compelling knowing Farber, Himself, had His own recent brush with mortality

  23. habsfaninboston says:

    Carolina now up 3-0

  24. Nina76 says:

    Come on Guys WIN this one just for fun & have fun playing the game SHOOT SHOOT BODIES IN FRONT OF THE GOALIE & I mean ALL BODIES NOT JUST DEFENCE GO HABS GO!!!!!!!

  25. badbalance says:

    Losing tonight would pretty much secure our position out of the playoffs. Can’t let NJ get 2 points or even a point

  26. JoeC says:

    Its amazing, how many Halak Bots come out of the woodwork after 1 softy by Price.

    Just so you guys know, halak was traded TWO years ago, its time to get over it.

    Again, Halak has been a Blue for 2 years, Go root for them or just STFU about the trade

  27. Mavid says:

    Cole taking about the penalties…or lack of take your pick

  28. Nina76 says:

    What the H..l.can we not stay out of the penality box……..you know that with Lee as one of the refs we will get most of the penalities & why are so many people including the Media so fired up about picks yes they are important but how do we know how good they are going to be , also can we wait that long for them to delevolpe.They say that we should trade Gill ,Moen.Question who are we going to get that is big & who wants to play here???? don’t forget the FRENCH vocabulary

  29. Mavid says:

    not sure who the color guy is on TSN but even HE is complaining about the officiating…saying the call on Diaz was bad…and totally embellished..and that the ref is missing calls on the Devils….TSN complains about the officiating for the Habs…my life no longer has meaning..

  30. krulmadden says:

    Larsson cheap shot! I agree with Boone. Bit boring last 10 minutes of 2nd. I think the 3rd will be fireworks.

  31. slapshot777 says:

    It is a penalty but the problems he was wearing the wrong color jersey. The refereeing and Bettman go hand in hand to spell corrupt.

  32. sCOTT1243 says:

    Our Ref buddy starting to show his true colors again…Clarkson was a dive, high sticking for Cole? How is is high sticking when Marty is on his knees.

    Comon Habs win this one.

  33. temekuhabs says:

    It’s been a rough game

  34. habs178 says:

    I like how LL can get grabbed and dragged down and there’s no call. Man the refs are BRUTAL!

  35. Rudy says:

    WTH was that Larsson???

  36. club_de_hockey says:

    Strange game? Strange season!

  37. habs178 says:

    Hey Boone….how about another 2 goal lead coming right up! Jeepers dude!

  38. temekuhabs says:

    Martin F

  39. RockinRey says:

    A little positivity Mr Boone. Please!! You dont see the rest of us dumping all over them…..

  40. HardHabits says:

    You know the fix will be in when the NHL will start officiating the Habs games better and more evenly later on in the remainder of this regular season, once the Habs are out of the play-offs for sure, so that they don’t get the better draft pick.

  41. danhabsfan says:

    That was a very stupid call. he’ standing there when the guy runs into him and falls… let me guess, Lee made that call.
    Why does Lee still have a job reffing, any level?

  42. SUMO says:

    NJ big forwards are crashing the net. They are taking a page out of the Sabres playbook. Chip it in and grind the Habs small D. I like Gorges and Diaz but wouldn’t a 6ft5in O’Byrne be useful? I wonder what Gauthier is thinking about.

  43. Sal says:

    Here we go! F/&king NHL refs SUCK! What was Diaz supposed to do there?

  44. slapshot777 says:

    Chris Lee make his own rules as he goes along. They won’t be satisfied until they get New Jersey to tie it up. Chris Lee has it in for Montreal. I wouldn’t be surprised if he had money on the game.

  45. RockinRey says:

    Lousy call

  46. habs178 says:

    Why u gotta be so damn negative ALL the time Boone? Its poopy!

  47. Doooie86 says:

    Boone, call it like it is – that shouldn’t have been a penalty, and if it’s Clarkson’s goal, there was definitely a distinct kicking motion.

    Chris Lee strikes again!

  48. mb says:

    “Here’s tghe Habs-fall-part segment of the game we all know so well.”

    Isn’t that segment usually in the third period?

  49. Timo says:

    3-2 for who? Wouldn’t have killed for HIO to have a little scoreboard add on.

  50. novahab says:

    Well I turned it off they are folding like a cheap suit. I will say onething after all the crap about Lapierre diving, The Sabres were diving all over the ice and now I see the Devils doing it. What the hell happen to the diving penalty.

  51. Propwash says:

    Frig sakes. Horrible penaltys at horrible times.

    Unravelling here. RC get these guys under control.

  53. temekuhabs says:

    A penalty??? That Chris F ???

  54. manu07 says:

    We are not blaming price. A good goal is a good goal but the first goal was an unscreened shot that my grandmother could have stopped with her cane.

  55. habsfaninboston says:

    Bullshit call.

  56. Storm Man says:

    What new rink Boone? The Barclays centre is for the Nets in the NBA… Too small at this point for hockey 14,500 max.

  57. temekuhabs says:

    Off the scoreboard..off the shinpad.. Off the skate..pfffft

  58. Ali says:

    gotta admit, im pretty impressed with the Devils broadcast crew. very fair commentary.

  59. slapshot777 says:

    The referees are happy now especially that moron Chris Lee.

  60. mb says:

    Thank you Chris Lee.

  61. Mondou6 says:

    Ok, that was a ridiculously lucky goal.

  62. habsfaninboston says:

    Could be intentional.

  63. temekuhabs says:

    What a crap goal

  64. Propwash says:

    Guuh…
    did’nt need that to happen

    Help me… I;ve never seen that called a high stick.. someone help me

  66. temekuhabs says:

    How’s that for a stick to the ear??

  67. Ali says:

    how the eff is that high sticking?
    1) Marty was on his KNEES
    2) it was a follow through of his shot

  68. slapshot777 says:

    Love how the officials are just looking at only one team tonight.

  69. NickDags says:

    Two penalties for cole tonight, I wouldnt blame him for both

  70. habsfaninboston says:

    Tough penalty.

  71. Rudy says:

    LOVE it, they just showed the last stanley cup win for the original 6, all in the nineties and 2000s and lowly Toronto at the bottom with 1967!!!!!

  72. Mondou6 says:

    Jeez, MSG just showing the Habs are trailing only Toronto for the last Original Six team to win the Cup…

  73. HabinBurlington says:

    AK and Emelin with some nice hits last shift.

  74. Propwash says:

    Be nice to get some more offense happening…..
