Liveblog: Canadiens lose 2-1 in OT


Filip Kuba ends a crazy game in OT.
Ottawa deserved the W.
And they’ve caught the Bruins.

Without Carey Price and Josh Gorges, this is 6-1 in regulation.

The Canadiens had a season low 14 SoG to 33 for the Senators


  1. HabinBurlington says:

    I would like to change my vote on the poll, I will not be able to cheer for this Ottawa team in the Playoffs.

    Go Habs Go, Go Jets Go!

  2. Bill says:

    Nice to see those little guys in Ottawa sweaters cheering on their team. But I frankly don’t believe anyone who was older than five when the Sens joined the league who claims to be an actual Sens fan. Francois Gagnon, for example.

  3. JIMVINNY says:

    Oh, I get it. They want to be the first team to have the best PK whilst finishing in the bottom 5.

    Also, very interesting that having a combined special teams % over 100 is usually the mark of a good team. The Habs are well over 100.

    Why do Swedes speak English better than guys from Sudbury?

    Because most Sudbarians speak Franglais

    Its time to switch to whiskey, we’ve been drinkin’ beer all night

  5. twilighthours says:


    Did CBC show a replay of campoli arguing with and rolling his eyes at RC? Man I hate that guy.

    • Mondou6 says:

      It showed them arguing back and forth. RC was reaming Campoli out over setting up an easy odd man rush for OTT. Campoli was arguing back. RC wasn’t pleased.

  6. HabFab says:

    Where is Showy?
    Boone is dissing the hood 😉

    “Karlsson on HNIC. Why do Swedes speak English better than guys from Sudbury?”

  7. jedimyrmidon says:

    Who thinks Habs will be dead tmr?

  8. Bill says:

    As I think SD said earlier, sometimes Lee criticism is over the top … but I am going to say that that is infrequently and barely at that. He really is a very poor referee. I expect no disagreement from anyone here, haha.

    • Mondou6 says:

      In all seriousness, do they even keep stats on number of penalties a ref calls on one team versus another?

      In Hab games, Lee must have 4:1 penalties against MTL. At some point, WTF?

  9. shootdapuck says:

    Is there a bigger tool on TV than Maclean?

    Yes and HNIC is the toolbox!

  10. twilighthours says:

    Did CBC show a replay of campoli arguing with and rolling his eyes at RC? Man I hate that guy.

  11. duffy says:

    Starting with McLean and Cherry. !!!!

  12. Kimberly2u says:

    I think our White has better hair than that Karlsson kid

  13. RockinRey says:

    Maclean is an A-hole. Not funny and makes some completely assenine comments.

  14. JoeC says:

    So much love for Price and Karilson tonight, i thinK karl will become the next Phoneuf or how ever they spell it

  15. shootdapuck says:

    What the hell is going on?

    Just another Chris Lee gong show!

    Interesting how this type of games follow him around.

  16. Captain aHab says:

    My highlight so far is still Boone saying “bitches” pre-game.

    Avast, me proud beauty! Wanna know why my Roger is so Jolly?

  17. Chuck says:

    What the hell is going on tonight?

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

  18. scavanau says:

    Got Club Desjardin tickets for 4/4. Haven’t been to the city in 3 years, need recommendations on a pre-game bar and a post-game bar.

  19. cha-cho says:

    Chris Lee always has to steal the spotlight! He must have been an only child!

    Was Markov Made In China??

  20. Maksimir says:



    You don’t have permission to access /wp-content/cache/supercache/ on this server.

    For ‘F’ sakes!!!! These errors have been around for a year!!!!! Seriously HIO is getting ripped off by their techs unless they work for free!!!

  21. Mondou6 says:

    I’m still trying to figure out how that was holding on Cole. He has two hands on his stick the entire time, with the puck, ends up dumped on the ice, and gets called for holding.

    I’m surprised Emelin wasn’t calling for diving when he got hit by the puck.

    • athanor says:

      Did you watch the replay? He clearly had defenceman’s arm trapped by his and so pulled him down when he fell.
      I was upset to see him go, cuz I thought Lee had finally called a penalty that helped Montreal. But, no, he proved true to form.

  22. JohnBellyful says:

    Say what you want about the officiating but those are dumb, dumb, dumb, DUMB penalties, Guess when you have such a great penalty-kill team, players have no qualms about taking selfish, stupid penalties. yep, watching a team play shorthanded so long is a real hoot. That will boost TV ratings.
    But if it’s the only way you can score …

    • Mondou6 says:

      Eller’s last penalty was stupid.

      If you want to talk officiating, watch the non-call on Max getting boarded, and then Cole called for “holding”.

      This is turning into pro wrestling level reffing.

  23. Mondou6 says:

    Price is playing insane tonight. He’s stopped at least 3 shots that were almost sure goals. This could be the best game he’s played all year.

  24. riddler says:

    Way to go out on a limb hard habits.

  25. WTF? Why is Chris Lee refing? He’s such a piece of Sheeeite!

    Promote the Youth, Support From The Veterans and Remember the Heritage!

  26. Kimberly2u says:

    My god how many penalties will there be by the end of the game….Josh’s body must be all black and blue

  27. Doooie86 says:

    Watching this game reffed by Chris Lee on CBC is a goddamned comedy of errors – but the Habs are still winning…

  28. HardHabits says:

    it. Draft 10th for all I care. This is too much fun. 😀

    I really hope they carry this into the next season though.

  29. L Elle says:

    ffs, are we going to watch our PK all night?

    Oh what the heck, we’re good at it.

  30. boing007 says:

    Fire Chris Lee!

    Richard R

  31. JIMVINNY says:

    Geez. Price is totally on the tank wagon, trying to let the sens win, but they keep hitting the post!!!!

  32. otter649 says:

    Bourque The New Jan Bulis…..

  33. Propwash says:


  34. HardHabits says:

    I don’t know why people rag on Bourque.

    I like how Bergeron described him, “Ca, s’t’un jouer d’hockey.”

  35. Pucknut says:

    What’s up with the refs tonite? Do they have a bet as to who can call the most penalties.

  36. scavanau says:

    I tuned in 16 minutes ago. When they gonna start playing hockey?

  37. HabinBurlington says:

    Eller has to learn not to do that and rather skate hard. He takes that penalty alot.

  38. jedimyrmidon says:

    Face palm.

  39. L Elle says:

    Chris Lee @#$%@#$%^&^%$#$$%%$&&^%$
    Ahhh, that felt good. 🙂

  40. Mondou6 says:

    CBC obsessed with Subban. All they do is criticize every single thing he does, all game long. Never mind the actual game, let’s crap on Subban non-stop for two hours.

  41. MattZ says:

    I know Price is good at playing the puck, but he has been playing with fire far too often this year. He has the burn marks to prove it 😉

  42. slapshot777 says:

    If your going to outlaw the PK hit then take hitting out altogether. At least the PK hit is one of the cleanest hits by a player no elbows or high sticks or running from behind.

  43. Mondou6 says:

    Jack Edwards, the Bruins’ homer announcer, is less anti-Habs than these CBC ass-clowns.

    Every word out of their mouth is crapping on us for something or other. They were even implying that the last boarding call on Subban was embellished.

    They haven’t said one positive thing about the Habs, the entire game. Even when we do something good, they have a snide comment about it.

  44. Kimberly2u says:

    The Turds won’t last long in the play offs…they suck big time

  45. Boomer says:

    Battle of the special teams…who sucks the most

  46. JIMVINNY says:

    no way that puck was offside. Terrible call.

  47. 69HABS says:

    The Zebras were really trying to give the Sens the game

  48. HabinBurlington says:

    Good old Simpson blame the Victim, go hang with Cherry Simpson.

  49. JIMVINNY says:

    Get away with boarding Patches, so they try it on Subban too.

  50. EricInStL says:

    i suspect that Subban’s ass-hit will be outlawed at one point. Not only is it careless, but potentially dangerous to the player being hit in regards to a back of the helmet to front of the face hit.

  51. shootdapuck says:

    Appears that the NHL recognizes the “abilities” of Chris F Lee as well.

    In a 10 plus year career he has been allowed 4 count them 4 playoff games!

    Says it all!

  52. mrhabby says:

    Emelin back in…..tough mother.

  53. RockinRey says:

    That Subban hit was so hard it winded me!

  54. icemachine says:

    Hello, This is next week call for Greening.

    Its time to switch to whiskey, we’ve been drinkin’ beer all night

  55. canadiens26 says:

    Boone, what did MacLean say?

  56. HardHabits says:

    Notwithstanding the Habs recent improved play, the Senators look like crap.

    • HabinBurlington says:

      Parity in the NHL has that affect on many playoff teams.

      • HardHabits says:

        I think the bottom 20 teams are closer than that even but not close to the 5-10 teams that top the league. Parity has levelled the playing field yes in that there are few really, really crappy teams. And those teams get the picks.

        There are still a few teams that dominate. This season those teams are St. Louis, Detroit, Nashville, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Rangers, and even though faltering a bit as of late, Vancouver, Chicago and Boston.

        In that list I would say there is a 90% probability that you have your Cup winner.

    • ont fan says:

      Wow, can’t see them going anywhere.

  57. HabinBurlington says:


  58. ont fan says:

    Kind of a love in for price…

  59. TomThompson says:

    I just had a horrible, and what I hope will not prove prophetic, vision.

    PK skating up the ice, demonstrating his speed and skill, dodging defenders, then dumping it in at the red line…reminded me strongly of Gomez. Just for a moment, but it was terrifying.

  60. joeybarrie says:

    No Markov, no Gomez, no Kaberle, no powerplay.
    Better we try for the short handed goals to win here.

  61. Boomer says:

    Just got home, haven’t spotted Markov yet, was he given a night off?

  62. mrhabby says:

    Pk draws penalty

  63. TomNickle says:

    If Chris Lee weren’t one of the referees in this game it would be a miracle that the Senators haven’t been called for a dive yet.

  64. HabinBurlington says:

    What great Penalty Killing by this team. That is nothing but effort! Great to see from the boys!

  65. HardHabits says:

    It’s an away home crowd tonight.

  66. L Elle says:

    When I see the sacrifices Gorges, Emelin and others make with their bodies, how can I cheer against them?

    Go Habs Go!

    May Giant spiders visit Chris Lee tonight. 😉

  67. EricInStL says:

    Come on even the refs are trying to help the Habs to tank.

  68. thorandresson says:

    what did Ron McLean say, that made Boone call him an a-hole?

    • neumann103 says:

      Plekanec was his usual laconic self. McLean evidently wanted more sizzle from the “bother the player during the intermission with two cliche questions” interview and quipped that they needed Chris Neil to get Tomas Plekanec going for the interview, the way he got the senators going in the first period.

      My main criticism of McLean isn’t these littel attempts to say something clever that just comes off like adick, it is that he feels he has to try to to do this all the time. He cannot just exit a segment wothout some stupid pun or idiot quip. Just leave it alone

      “Et le but!”

  69. icemachine says:

    Nice Dive Karlsson!

    Its time to switch to whiskey, we’ve been drinkin’ beer all night

  70. Kimberly2u says:

    Typical Chris Lee game

  71. thorandresson says:

    if Ottawa can’t win this game, then I don’t see them doing much in the playoffs…

  72. HabinBurlington says:

    Would love to see one of the Tank Commanders here go to Emelin after the game and tell him, “ya Hey you should of lost that would be better for the team!”

  73. HardHabits says:

    Looks like the rib.

  74. HabinBurlington says:

    Our team has warriors on the PK
