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.

    How do you ice a puck and have pressure in your own end with an extra man.

  2. Mondou6 says:

    lol…we have 6 men and we can’t even touch the puck…maybe we just plain suck?

  3. kholdstare says:

    wtf was that? Is kaberle for real?

  4. slapshot777 says:

    Well, if the Habs are going to make any trades. Molson had better decide what he plans to do with PG.

    If he is going to cut him loose, he had better watch what is going to happen and approve all trades.

  5. HardHabits says:

    Seeing Larry coaching the Devils just irks me as much as it makes me sad.

  6. Habbu says:

    Doesn’t matter folks, focus on the deadline and the draft, it’s all we’ve got to look forward to. A disastrous year that can’t end soon enough for moi

  7. Rad says:

    The great Larry Robinson … on the wrong side of the fence!

  8. RockinRey says:

    Since when has Robinson been back with the Devils. I must have missed that or forgotten…

  9. HabFanSince72 says:

    Larry Robinson setting up the NJ defence.

    Not right.


    Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.

  10. Mondou6 says:

    RC should spend the entire timeout going off on the refs. Just because there’s nothing else to accomplish at this point.

  11. sCOTT1243 says:

    Wow, lets just end the season now, love the habs but this is painful.

  12. lavie says:

    I said early hope Price win a shootout, but I still wish. ;)

  13. JohnBellyful says:

    Is it possible the refs have bought into the Habs tanking philosophy?
    Tomorrow’s headline: ‘Habs tank, refs stank’

  14. Ali says:

    wasnt a penalty.

  15. Habitant in Surrey says:

    …ha, even the MSG+ play-by-play thought that should have been a Kovalchuk penalty
    …oops, EDIT …he changed his mind :)

    Habitant means PASSIONATE HOCKEY

  16. OMG CHRIS LEE
    I prefer a loss over a shootout loss but man this guy is NOT a NHL-caliber referee.

  17. Mondou6 says:

    Hey, at least it wasn’t a shoot out loss.

    Time to piss off Bettman, and go into full tank mode.

  18. Storm Man says:

    well see the team in 2013-2014 this movie has come to a close.

  19. temekuhabs says:

    Lol I don’t believe it.. No call onElias for the hook, flubbed shot right to Parise.. Season in a nutshell

  20. danhabsfan says:

    Nice to see some “emotion” behind the bench.
    I think the fat lady is warming up

  21. gumper says:

    Some serious interference preceding that one. Ah well, team’s goin’ nowhere in a big hurry anyway. When a few bad calls make the difference in your season, you know you’re runnin’ on fumes.

  22. Bertuzzi says:

    Is anyone surprised? What a contrast of goalies.

  23. habsfaninboston says:

    F’ckn refs.

  24. Rad says:

    Anyone surprised?

  25. slapshot777 says:

    WTF the officiating is just brutal.

  26. Mondou6 says:

    That was setup on a great non-call of a hook on Cole.

  27. PureGuava says:

    This team sucks beyond belief.

  28. HardHabits says:

    Phew. I was worried it was going to go to OT.

  29. Propwash says:

    Lemme guess, Price sucked on that too?

  30. Klondike Habs Fan says:

    Boone, It is a tantalizing display of what he IS! Cmon with the AK hate. He is a great part of team and sometimes he is able to pull off sweet stuff like that.

    Look, AK is no RR, but he is AK. All around the best hab after Cole.

  31. Rudy says:

    Elias is an a-hole

  32. Adidess says:

    I am a fan of Price. Want him locked up for many years. Not on his game tonight, no question about it. Not every puck that gets deflected should end in the net. Positioning, anticipation, alertness help against those.
    By the way, great clean hit by Subban!

  33. Doooie86 says:

    Someone needs to take out Elias

  34. slapshot777 says:

    Anyone see Gill in the third period?

  35. Rad says:

    Clean hit by Subban. Let’s see if it wakes up the team.

  36. habs-fan-84 says:

    classy.

  37. JohnBellyful says:

    How refreshing! A player wasn’t challenged to a fight after delivering a clean check!

  38. Propwash says:

    No hard feelings between them.

    Perfectly clean hit

  40. habs17 says:

    Why do we even try to take the lead we always lose it
    I support Scott Gomez

  41. P-Habby says:

    Now who wants to trade PK?

  42. Mondou6 says:

    I *LOVE* how Subban always tries to line someone up after a Hab gets roughed up.

    MaxPac gets plowed, and 2 seconds later, Subban steps up and knocks out a Devil.

    He did that a couple games ago too. Thank god someone does.

    F Larsson.

  43. habs-fan-84 says:

    At least PK can still hit. Looking forward to the next few years with the core of this team.

  44. ABHabsfan says:

    That was a good hit wasn’t it?

  45. Sal says:

    Subby!! Nice!!

  46. temekuhabs says:

    What a hit

  47. slapshot777 says:

    Great hit PK, make that POS pay for the grab on LL earlier in the game.

  48. JohnBellyful says:

    One of the reasons why the Habs keep Subban

  49. Timo says:

    KABOOM!!!! Way to go Subbie!

  50. Storm Man says:

    Bang Bang great hit PK!!!!!!!!

  51. SUMO says:

    I love Pk. No quit in him.

  52. Propwash says:

    WOW PK just destroyed Larsson!

    Subbang!!!

  54. God if we go to another shootout I will cry my head off. I’d rather LOSE than watch our team suffer in the shootout.
    NO ONE on this team can score in the SO. What is our record? 1-7??

  55. HardHabits says:

    3P 13:00 Such a lame crowd. The Bell Centre would be a madhouse
    by Mike Boone 9:11 PM

    Not unlike this place.

  56. Rickly33 says:

    Brodeur overrated, are you mentally challenged? If he was a hab goaltender he’d be the best right? Fans like you make me throw up in my mouth a bit!

  57. Kimberly2u says:

    Lose in a shoot out? We will be lucky if we get that far

  58. Habsbill24 says:

    Any reruns of Mr. Rogers on? They would be more exciting than the Habs. And Mr. Rogers is tougher than the current group of players.

  59. Sal says:

    Hate Brodeur. Feasted on trap hockey for years. Over-rated.

  60. Rickly33 says:

    These guys look like their throwing almost every game, they have had the lead for 20+ games going into the third, they cant be that bad to lose that many…

  61. Habsbill24 says:

    Cammy was right. What a bunch of losers. Painful to watch. Can’t we quickly adopt a third jersey for these guys to wear so that they don’t soil the logo?

  62. gumper says:

    If RC is not rehired this summer, it won’t be because of his linguistic deficiencies, but because he has no freakin’ clue about how to develop a big league power play.

  63. Rudy says:

    Long 2 months ahead, I’ll still watch and hope for wins, but this is tough. When do they pick who gets 1st, 2nd, 3rd pick etc? I’ve never paid attention before. Is it done the day before the draft?

  64. Old Bald Bird says:

    Even when we have possession in the O-Zone on the PP, we see 5 guys standing still.

  65. habsfaninboston says:

    Sarcasm, Boone?

  66. Propwash says:

    Carey isn’t 100% at fault, a deflection is a deflection, no human can move that fast when it goes off a stick close to the net.

  67. temekuhabs says:

    Nothing against women hockey players, I’d take any Canadian women on D over Kaberle

  68. SUMO says:

    what a dirty pos clarkson is.

  69. Habbu says:

    Hey I’ve got thicker than thick glasses and the last two Devil’s goals were deflections……….I think……or else this TV is on the fritz

  70. Doooie86 says:

    Whose side are you on here Boone? That was clearly interference and he stuck his leg out – get a grip man

  71. JasonM says:

    Did Pleks even look at the net when he shot?

  72. slapshot777 says:

    How in the f*ck is that a bad goal by Price, are you f*cking watching the game or not. Did you not see the puck deflected of Kabarle stick and change direction.

    F*ck off with the bullsh!t commentary. Watch the game and comment on what is happening.

  73. HNS says:

    If Mr. Softie won about half of his shoot out loses, Habs would be in better shape to get in. No way worth 5 mil., no way.

  74. Mondou6 says:

    Ok, I’ll say it…Plekanec can’t score to save his life.
