The Canadiens’ 4-1 loss in Philadelphia, combined with Buffalo’s home win, eliminates our heroes from playoff contention.
Only that it took this long.
we are two 20 goal scores or Three 15 goal scores Plus tweek the “D” to cut back 30-35 goals against. fix that over the summer – no need to blow up the team and we’ll be ok for 2012-2013 playoffs.
…Mike Boone: “I guess no one is allowed to hit Jagr, eh? Gorges gave away inches and pounds to Kubina. That should be addressed.”
…this is WHAT ??? gets Me about the pacifist and anti-fighting crowd …and I am not only talking about Boone and His sly digs condescending the role of ‘fighters’ and ‘fighting’ in the NHL
…I Myself bemoan the one-dimensional ‘goons’, but these are examples when even the pacifists look for physicality and push-back
…if Your Team does not possess potential to ‘give’ as well as ‘take’, just be certain Life will be miserable …You WILL be pushed-around, intimidated and look pathetic
…that is Life, no matter Our well-intentioned ideals

missed the game, glad I did.. 21 Jumpstreet was hilarious!
If anyone thinks that Halak would have gotten the Habs to the playoffs this season think again. Yes Clay, U R one of the many here.
Research is your friend;

Personally, I think Price is a good goalie, but would rather have kept ‘he who shall remain nameless’. But I also got over it, and am looking to the future – which I hope includes Price
☞ Wow, that’s a nice lookin’ pair of Crocs!” Said no one ever.☜
I read what U said.
Good. Then let me be clear – I like Price, just not you 😀
…Mike Boone: “Again Cherry is all over the Leafs for Kadri.”
…I’m enjoying this power-play between Cherry and Brian Burke
…and, for once in a Lifetime, I’m pulling for Cherry
this sounds crazy but i am almost relieved they are knocked out. For some weird reason i thought they could squeak ini know i know i was delusional but hey im only human. judging by tonight’s game we dont have the quality players to keep up with the big boys at the moment. could be due to a few injuries but i think im not crazy when i say we need some more talent, especially on d. montreal playoff hockey is all i look forward too in the spring time and it cuts like a knife not being able to take part in that, as it is a family tradition almost like a religion to be glued to the tv watching. anyways thank you guys everyone on this site whether negative or not because i know what its like being a habs fan and ill be the first to admit that at one second i can be a negative nelly and a second later i can be so happy and optimistic about the team. anyways this year is over but there are very good points like having 2 thirty goal scorers i cant remember the last time we had that happen. i spend more time on this website (not actually posting but reading ) than any other website , here is to the good times and to the bad times like tonight, cheers (as i take a drink to my vodka and coke) hopefully next year and in the future years we have nothing but positives to talk about.
So we can officially shed a tear tonight . Even though our faith was sealed a while ago.
Cannot be much worst next year injury wise .
The youngsters learned a lot this season and a few changes here and there should do the job.
Bring me Cole`s twin brother and we`ll be o.k.
Bye bye P.G.
We did not have what it takes although everything that could go wrong did…
LOL we were eliminated in the pre-season …
…and, You called it Stephen !
What, we are eliminated!!!?
Phew! We’re still talking about this year…
Should have had Price in tonight!
Why, what would’ve been the score then? 5-1, maybe 6. Either you’re a huge jabroni or just being sarcastic……hopefully the latter.
Booooodaj couldn’t lace up Carey’s skates. Lay off the insults Jimmy!
Friggin Florida has a 5-goal worse differential than us and they’re in third place. Total bullcrap.
A stubble jumping Sasquatch that scored 35 goals and counting.
goodnight boys and girls.
Don’t buy your popcorn from Giant Tiger discount brand . YUCK. It’s gonna be a two-roll night (double ply please) … i think.
Least the spice rum tasted good.
Let’s be kind to the team. Was a Fun Friday.. today is Tank Saturday. Look at the bigger picture.
Tough night for Habs and Boone!
Thanks Boone for sticking right thru the end.. Lousy game.
How about Ottawa coming back from a bad loss to stomp the Pens? Impressive!!
And the Leafs get a valuable point (for us, that is) – good stuff.
☞ If I agreed with you we’d both be wrong. ☜
Pens outshot the Sens 40-28.
Pens had their third string goalie starting his fourth career NHL game.
Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.
Wow – thanks for the update. I just saw the score, but that info definitely changes my perception.
…Winnipeg loses to Nashville …Ottawa 8 ! Pens 4 oufff ! …and We pick-up a point on the Weeds
Nice field goal Khadri!! That’s why he’s in the minors Cherry!!!
On the rare time I cheer for the Leafs, they blow it
They always blow it.
And Kubina gets away with it……..I guess they decided that the stern talking to was enough.
@Habitant in Surrey:
I’m not sure what address my uncle lived at on Ridgewood, I’ll have to ask my brother if he remembers. My uncle’s name was Tom Dovolos….
No relation I’m guessing to “crazy” Joe Dovola from Seinfeld fame?
It’s a very Seinfeldian night for you
“Et le but!”
My uncle hated clowns! 😉
…I lived on Ridgewood in 50s/60s/early 70s & the 90s Perry (both living with parents growing up, and later as a batchelor & married) …top of the hill …Dovolos is name I don’t recognize, but I am really bad remembering names
oh god i’m cheering for the leafs to win.. ugh this season sucks
If Mathieu Darche’s return means one of White, Staubitz or Blunden sits then I hope Darche is nailed to the pressbox.
Jack Edwards is a clam, Bruins are pukes.
…to anyOne thinking if Carey was in nets tonight the score would be different … I say nuts !
…Budaj has been solid
Price would have won this game 1-0
He’s the bestest goalie ever! 😉
Price really p$sses you off Clay? or is it just the Pricebots?
Here is another “hair” artist to counter your Frampton.
I raise you 3 haha
I have nothing against Price – as you say, just Pricebots. It’s become impossible to have a rational goalie discussion because of them.
I think it goes both ways Clay. 69Habs’ comment is innocuous really.
Dont you think all the hate thrown Prices’ way might bother his fans?
(You must admit, there is a lot of it on here)
Im a Pricebot, we can have a rational goalie discussion, as long as you agree Price is great.
Actually, I agree – it does go both ways. There have been too many transgressions on both sides. Personally, I think Price is a good goalie, but would rather have kept ‘he who shall remain nameless’. But I also got over it, and am looking to the future – which I hope includes Price.
And I can get along with some Pricebots – but certainly not Priceberg here (AKA 69Habs and 1000 other aliases).
Fair enough! Lets hope this team bounces back next season in a big way.
I ignore the Haters, just ignore the ExtremeBots if they bother you.
There is no other way around it except staying away from the computer. 😉
He will be
Okay but if it had been Jaro in net?
HE WOULDA SCORED THE WINNER HIMSELF!!!
Quit yer yellin’ fellow my hearing is fine! But I agree.
Coconuts right back at ya .
…I love My nutz L Elle
too much information.
OOORoy ,OOORoy OOORoy OORoy OOORoy OOORoy
Looks like leafs in shootout again tonight.
Let’s hope they win.
PK & White, WTF?
Roy when you take over the team pleasssssssssssse do passing drills till they throw up. Then after that make them do more and more and more. Then when they think that’s enough another week of just passsing drills.
…ole ole ? …Philthydelphia Phlyer phans are ALMOST as insufferable as Habs’ Fans 😉
Can’t even make a pass off the rush……….
At least we killed Ottawa.
Boone… not sure if they are the better team, but they are the better PP team
Ok… they are the better team
Habs PP…pass, pass, pass, big wind up fake a shot, pass, pass, big wind up shot deflected wide/into goalie’s chest, opposition clears the zone.
Bourque on the rush…carry puck 2 strides, pass, skate one stride, receive pass, float a shot to the corner, skate off.
Reminds me of the waltz. lol
…lots of likeable Players on Our Team, but We really need to find some who can actually put a puck in a net
Cammalleri scored today.
Not so much Bryz is on fire. Habs can’t shoot tonight!
unlike other nights?
Rene “Cottonelle” Bourque… soft toilet paper.
Our PP looks more like a penalty kill. SHOOT for crissakes!
Bryz covered that outside the trapezoid. There should have been another penalty there.
Loose the slapper PK, U take all night to wind up!
It’s a 5 on 3 and where’s Desharnais? Off-screen in the corner where he can scoop in a rebound?
Wow …typing a comment on an iPod makes Me look like I flunked Englisg grammar, eh ? Haha
put pleks out there for the pp. he is playing better than DD tonight
What a creative power play.
Anybody else feels their heart almost stopped when Markov got tripped there?
Im chillin to Frampton.
I wonder what markov said to Bryz. Apparently there are 100 ways to say f u in Russian.
I must break you.
Markov to Bryz: “Da, Da,.. you treep me”
Boone, obnoxious is a compliment to these Phillistines!
Ignorant would be a better description!
Total BS that White got the only roughing. Simmons should have had the elusive triple minor.
Haha, love the Philly announcers, all over Emelin for a dive, yet not a word about Rinaldo’s dive.
5 on 3, Subban will score
Wow …using this iPod to type comments sure makes Me look like I flunked English grammar
We can match up physically with 30 to 40 % of NHL teams against most NHL teams …it’s these type (Flyers, Bruins, Blues, etc etc) that We realize Our Team still must get bigger
It’s easy to see the vets has mail this it but the young players please enjoy the AHL. The younger players, you have this shot to prove something and you all failed very very poorly. If I was a young player this is my game. I be going like a bat out of hell every second on the ice. Looks like we ll have the same line up next year if the leadership goes by their effort. I am very disappointed in these nothing games that not one young player has taken this op to prove something.
i wouldn’t say the vets have mailed it in. Cole hasn’t. George hasn’t. pleks is playing well tonight.. What vet has mailed it in?
Give me a break just because you skake evey 3rd or forth shift a bit. Their powerplay is just a joke there is very little effort there. Pleks has mail this season in before the trade deadline.
The PP has been horrible all year, it won’t change now. (Muller I think was the reason for good PP in the past few years). Some vets have not mailed it in (see above comments)… our young guys are not good enough. We need a new GM to make good tough choices in the off season.
AK is a better player than Cheech Ma–I mean Bourque
come on isle score force ot. get that loser point
Great, all the teams we want to win have blown their leads/ties in the past 10 minutes or so.
World class dive. That’s how you can tell it’s an Olympic year!
Rinaldo with a soccer dive! Co-in-ki-dink? I think not.
Pyatt has 11 goals?
Under JM that wouldn’t be allowed in less than 10 seasons.
Bourque reminds me of AK46; in & out of consciousness.
i’d prefer AK.. At least he finishes his checks on the forcheck.
It ‘s games like this that show how out classed our Habs are…
So, the Sens are spanking that penguin, huh? Good for them.
good. i want all the canadien teams to make the playoffs.. Well not the leafs, but all the rest
^^^^ this guy
Only seven months left to the next season. 😉
So much for Kostitsyn thriving in Nashville.. He’s been firing blanks.
Boone has already moved on past Ak is now lamenting the loss of Pyatt.
…excuse doubling …using iPod to post …can not see if post got though immediately
on a different note. if you are a rum drinker i strongly suggest “The kracken” it’s delicious
If I’m white or staubitz, I’m booking ‘a dance’ with Kubina before this over
Pleky is on fire tonight. Showing a lot of fire. He really knows when to turn it on.
Yeah, once in every dozen games or so!
…if I’m staubitz or white ? …I’m booking ‘a dance’ with Kubina before the this game is over …nobody touches the heart of this Tesm, Josh Gorges !
Gorges …$ 3.9 million fist blocker
Yet you’re a big fan of $7.8M 25-goal scorers, odd.
Hartnell, a stubble jumping Sasquatch !
