Liveblog: Happy 2012!

Travis Moen

Nowhere to go but up, right?
Hey, anyone out there?

That’s 15 blown leads this season.

Brutal … and depressing.


  1. J Dub says:

    I don’t usually complain about the refs, but Florida is getting away with a lot tonight.

  2. slapshot777 says:

    Moen gets a penalty for falling on Campbell.

  3. Mondou6 says:

    That late hit on Eller is exactly why it would be nice to have a goon to take out a Panther skill player later.

  4. twilighthours says:

    Unbelievable that the interference wasn’t called.


  5. showey47 says:

    How are we the only ones with a penalty? The hit on eller was late.

  6. Mark C says:

    How was that not interference on the Eller hit?

  7. Rad says:

    That might have been the shoulder he injured last year, damm!

  8. JIMVINNY says:

    That`s f*cking late. Panthers are gooning it up, and the goddam refs are letting them.

  9. Rad says:

    Jeeze Eller, keep your head up!!!!

  10. bellcentre hotdog says:

    Eller rocked without the puck.

  11. Rad says:

    Emelin may already be the best hitter in the game. There is no way he should EVER be sat out again.

  12. HabsFanMTL says:

    Hell i would have kept Paul Mara, his 2nd time with us he played just great, very few mistakes if any at all and he was making bodys fly and he droppe the gloves………damm this soft Management!!!

  13. twilighthours says:

    If Martin was still coach, Emelin would be in the press box instead of throwing hip checks.


  14. Clutch10 says:

    Why are we not forechecking tonight?

  15. bellcentre hotdog says:

    Textbook hipcheck.
    Best of the season.

  16. Sal says:

    Gotta love that the Habs, finally have a guy, that, you better keep your head up when he’s on the ice.

    Sal from the Hammer

  17. Danno says:

    That Russian tank can hit


    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  18. twilighthours says:

    Barche should get a nice long suspension for his racial slur.

    And PK should stop turtling and stop sucking.


  19. Miltie01 says:

    It is nice to see the good old fashioned hip check is back in the NHL !!!

  20. naweed235 says:

    Holly Crap… Emelin is a BEAST!!!!!!!

  21. JasonM says:

    I only watch Hab games nowdays to watch Emelin play.

  22. Mila says:

    One thing about Emelin, his hits are clean. My favorite new player.

  23. slapshot777 says:

    What a beast Emelin is. A thing of beauty. Love that hit.

  24. Clutch10 says:

    The Siberian express

  25. JIMVINNY says:

    highlite of the nite.

  26. Bertuzzi says:

    Emelin is my new favorite player.

  27. RGM says:

    #EmelinBOOM – love how quickly the kid is progressing!
    GO HABS GO! 2011-12 is probably not our year!

  28. Mondou6 says:

    Refs have lost all control of this game. This is going to get really ugly before it’s over.

  29. Rad says:

    Boone says we want Laraque because of the dirty hit by Jovanovski. We don’t want Laraque, we want someone who will fight! Laraque was too nice a guy. we need someone who enjoys hurting people.

  30. HabinBurlington says:

    Emelin the Russian Tank

  31. bellcentre hotdog says:

    That 74 in white is a Beauty!




  33. Mondou6 says:

    lol…Florida announcers are brutal homers…They are crowing over the attendance last night (Rangers) and tonight. Meanwhile, when we scored 80% of the crowd cheered.

  34. Clutch10 says:

    Wants an HIO iPad app!

  35. J.Ambrose.OBrien says:

    When the hell does the Subban maturation begin? Because I am getting sick of his dumb decisions and grandstanding.

  36. JIMVINNY says:

    two suspension worthy hits.

  37. HabsFanMTL says:

    are we ever gonna score a power play goal??

  38. idle says:

    This is just a wild guess, but I would think the Habs have to lead the league over the last couple of years in taking penalties while on the power play

  39. twilighthours says:

    That was a soft call.


  40. Marc10 says:

    You know… I think we need to call it. This year’s version of Pleky is inferior to DD and Eller (offensively that is).

    Maybe we stick him on the third line and give him PK duties. I’d rather have the other guys on the powerplay and with Cole and Patches…

  41. Mavid says:

    sooo is that who were picking on tonight Subban, Plekanec, with a sprinkling of Price?

    second place is just the first loser

  42. HabsFanMTL says:

    this is turning into a big joke

  43. Mondou6 says:

    Here’s the link to the racial slur story on Barch:!/OnFrozenPond

    • Les Canayens says:

      With the amount of chirping going on since eternity in any NHL games it’s not surprising, nor should it be made into a bigger issue.

      ☞ I can’t really hear what Jeremy says, because I’ve got my two Stanley Cup rings plugging my ears.☜

      • Mondou6 says:

        I can’t agree with that. You can’t have a league with racial slurs in it. What’s next, the NHL will be like European soccer crowds, and we’ll have racist chants at players during games?

        Really, this is nuts.

  44. Clutch10 says:

    Kick Jovo out for that, just as bad as hitting from behind

  45. twilighthours says:

    That was so so dirty. Sure hope someone regulates on jovsnovski.


  46. PrimeTime says:

    That should be a major!!

  47. bellcentre hotdog says:

    Jovo playing like a goon.

  48. Mavid says:

    those McDonald’s commercial were PJ and Hrudy start to argue about the greatest hockey moment are up there with the stupidest commercial’s ever…

    I think Gally is still pissed that we spanked his poor little sens the other night

    second place is just the first loser

  49. Mondou6 says:

    Florida feed is trying to figure out why Barch was ejected…They showed the end of the peroid, and he wasn’t on the ice.

    It was obvious he was ejected for something he said, which would lend possibility to the racial slur…

    No one has any update or source on this? This is a potentially big story…

  50. like a boss says:

    3-0 Canada

  51. HabinBurlington says:

    Connolly 3-0 Canada

  52. Marc10 says:

    Nice little fight back by the Habs… I liked Blunden out there.

    Play like that every shift and go to the net kid and you’ll get some ice time.

    Man I wish AK46 took some notes there… Just a bit more edge to his game and a bit more ‘go to the net’ and Brother Andre would be something else…

  53. headbanger33 says:

    Price = 13th in GAA; 14th in Sv % amongest starters.

    That does NOT equate to a cup-winning goaltender.

  54. HardHabits says:

    Bob Cole says about Subban’s rush… “and he fails again.” He’s no Danny Gallivan that’s for sure.

  55. Rad says:

    Bradley on Emelin again. I’m sure he’s got one coming from Emelin, should the opportunity present itself.

  56. headbanger33 says:

    Price sucks.

  57. alfieturcotte says:

    Does anyone please have a link to stream tonight’s game?

  58. Mondou6 says:

    Any update on the Barch game misconduct?

  59. Rad says:

    Cammalleri really playing well since Cunneyworth took over. I’m sure he was one of the players who never got along with JM.

  60. bellcentre hotdog says:

    Domination! And no pp! What the …

  61. Bertuzzi says:

    that’s it. bench plekanics

  62. Mondou6 says:

    Clemmensen was lit up last night, how obvious is it that he’s going to shut us out the rest of the way.

    If any goalie needs to gain confidence, facing us always does the trick. We make any bum netminder look like a Vezina candidate.

  63. Marc10 says:

    Here we go. Turning point?

  64. TM357 says:

    @Dude…….Price is going to where what????

  65. LTHF says:

    Goal #1 Gill as usual down on his knees. with him they are playing 2 men short

  66. NO excuse man, we better light this guy up.

  67. danielri says:

    There were a couple of commercial breaks while play was still on on HNIC in Montreal!

    Quick switches to RDS saved the day.

  68. like a boss says:

    bye theodore

  69. The Dude says:

    Price is going to wear that one.

  70. Bertuzzi says:

    Pleks is really playing lazy hockey these days.

  71. RGM says:

    It was just tweeted that Barch was thrown out of the game for uttering a racial slur towards PK.

    GO HABS GO! 2011-12 is probably not our year!
