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. Bertuzzi says:

    Well done, Plekaniks. At this point, the logic option for any true Habs fan is to hope for them to tank and aim for a high draft pick.

  2. WindsorHab-10 says:

    Only thing Plekanec is good for is putting his team in a bigger hole. Talk about an overrated player.

  3. Mattyleg says:

    That stupid panther sound is annoying.
    And stupid.

    —Hope Springs Eternal—

  4. HardHabits says:

    So I’ve figured out what’s happened. The Forum Ghosts have found their way back. They now haunt the Habs with losses.

    Back in the day the Habs had a great team but when it was close all the ghosts needed to do was put a little wisp of a breath here and there to sway the tide in favour of the Habs.

    Now with the Habs built the way they are it would take colossal efforts by the ghosts to tip the games in their favour. So the ghosts have taken the easy way out. Make the Habs lose. Get the high pick. It will be easier to help the team in the future when they are worthy of such otherworldly assistance.

  5. Mark C says:

    Another dive.

  6. topher5468 says:

    This team has no heart, If things don’t change, you hang both Florida losses on Price, well that and poor offensive support tonight. He has no margin for error

    “It’s not an obsession, It’s a way of life..”

  7. WindsorHab-10 says:

    People that make excuses for Price like he’s given up on this season, enough already. He’s getting paid to play & stop pucks & if that’s the attitude then make him available too.

  8. Rad says:

    Looked like a dive to me. Should be 2 mins. the other way

  9. JasonM says:

    Pleks has SUCCCCKED so much as of late.

  10. The 11-12 Habs have to be the worst-3rd-period-team EVER to play in the NHL.

  11. Mondou6 says:

    God I hate these Florida announcers. I can’t wait for them to have to defend the racist tag this team is going to get.

  12. The Dude says:

    The Habs couldn’t score in the Mustang Ranch!

  13. WindsorHab-10 says:

    I don’t think Jesus can save this sorry team.

  14. J.J. of Turku says:

    Damn, that Emelin is good. All the small things he does among his great hits gives an impression like he’s been in the NHL forever.

  15. WindsorHab-10 says:

    Panthers played last night & we’re the ones looking like crap.

  16. Habbu says:

    So many odd man rushes where they don’t even get a shot directed at the net.

  17. bellcentre hotdog says:

    Habs have folded like a cheap tent.

  18. Mondou6 says:

    Budaj needs to play like every 3rd game at this point.

    Price is getting effing brutal out there. He’s actually giving away games that we could possibly win. I mean seriously, WTF. He’s not buying us anything at this point.

  19. JIMVINNY says:

    WTF is wrong with the ice in the Habs end? Guys are falling all over the place.

  20. The Dude says:

    Man we suck bad………

  21. WindsorHab-10 says:

    I miss JM.

  22. RGM says:

    Great reporting by Florida beat guy:

    Condemnation from the Panthers organization was swift.

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

  23. twilighthours says:

    Just in case you’ve forgotten, Florida was the team that played last night


  24. WindsorHab-10 says:

    This team wasn’t even able to direct a shot at a cold goalie. Blow this whole f…ing team up.

  25. Rainrocket16 says:

    Call a damned Timeout right now!!!

  26. Sal says:

    Cammellerri same thing every time. Fake the shot, shoot, shot is blocked. Try something else, please, everybody is on to the the one move…

    Sal from the Hammer

  27. HardHabits says:

    Protect that 1 goal deficit.

  28. Mondou6 says:

    Every time Price gives up a crippling game-blowing goal, he always plays great after. lol…

  29. Rainrocket16 says:

    Everyone needs to get off Price’s Nuts…what a save!

  30. AceMagnum says:


    “Horton Hears a Boo”
    -Mike Boone April 2011

  31. bellcentre hotdog says:

    Boone is right … Same script game after game …

  32. HNS says:

    Get Halak back! WTF Price????

  33. Mondou6 says:

    Remember…Higher draft pick.

    And please, no more goalies picked with 1st round draft picks. Goalies are a dime a dozen.

  34. WindsorHab-10 says:

    Man this team sucks & so does Price. I’ve been saying it for a while. Sit his sorry ass for at least 2 games.

  35. HNS says:

    Thank you Mr. Softie….

  36. slapshot777 says:

    I think Carey has given up on the season. His body language looks uninterested.

  37. Bertuzzi says:

    I like watching Montreal. So comfortably predictable. No stress.

  38. Mondou6 says:

    Softie…And, game over.

    Happy New Year, HIO people…

  39. Danno says:

    Here we go again


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

  40. showey47 says:

    Unless that was deflected,which i don’t think it was. Price needs to have that one.

  41. solomio says:

    OMG !! Price needs a rest… even if that puck did hit the D’s stick

    “I figure PG has one or 2 moves left to bring the Habs that extra step closer to perhaps being the best in the league.” – Einstein

  42. PrimeTime says:

    Price putting too much pressure on himself for the habs record…now reverting to some bad habits

  43. Rainrocket16 says:

    What Shotty Defense we have!!! BOOOOO!!

  44. HabFab says:

    Canada out shooting the Americans 24-12 but still 3-0 in the second.

  45. The Dude says:

    What is going on Carey??????????????????

  46. JasonM says:

    There’s the softie.

  47. idle says:

    If your playing with DD you better be ready for the pass

  48. Nine1one says:

    Boone you a liverpool supporter as well? Suarez also got a ban for giving the finger to the fulham supporters!

    Suarez isn’t a racist, apparently he said negrito in a playful taunting manner (not offensive in south america) after evra said sudaca (offensive term for south america)

  49. Mondou6 says:

    Predictions? Do you think we hold on for the “loser point” (1-1), or do we we lose it outright in regulation? (plus the inevitable empty-netter to make it 3-1)

  50. habs001 says:

    If camm had kessels season we would not be 25th in the nhl

  51. habs001 says:

    Gallager has a lot of fight and tries hard …he has scored a lot in junior but he seems to miss a lot of chances when he was with us and with team canada

  52. solomio says:

    Next goal wins!! Fkg pins and needles.!!
    Sure hope Eller comes back and scores the winner or Cammy.
    Anybody please….. we need this one so bad.
    Habs playing a great road game.

    “I figure PG has one or 2 moves left to bring the Habs that extra step closer to perhaps being the best in the league.” – Einstein

  53. The Dude says:

    Florida gonna love Barch for that …he’s done.

  54. habs001 says:

    Why is it when we play back to back we get killed but when the other team plays back to back we lose…no excusenot to win the third…

  55. Mondou6 says:

    I have to say it’s kind of funny that Boone is outraged that RDS is slow to report the racial slur story…And yet, it took him 30 minutes to notice it after it was posted on his own live blog… 😉

    Sorry, Boone, I love ya…:)

  56. slapshot777 says:

    @ idle


    I said the same thing. It’s okay because he has no history. WTF, how much history would you want concerning a racial slur.

    He is a total moron. He doesn’t have a clue.

  57. habs001 says:

    The pp looks better but some of our forwards are lacking natural scoring instincts and make some really bad decisions on the pp…27th pp is just terrible…

  58. solomio says:

    Sit Pacioretty (sp). Guy has disappeared.

    “I figure PG has one or 2 moves left to bring the Habs that extra step closer to perhaps being the best in the league.” – Einstein

  59. Mavid says:

    Martin is gone….can you not move on?

    second place is just the first loser

  60. idle says:

    er… so he has no history of racial slurs in the past. So it’s O.K this time then?

  61. HabsFanMTL says:

    what? Milbury keeps his job??

  62. J.J. of Turku says:

    Hahaa! I woke up my wife with my reaction to Emelin’s hit. She came to livingroom, looked at me and said: “Håll käften, idiot” (Shut up, idiot.) [in swedish] 😀 😀 😀

  63. Danno says:

    Campbell should have been sent off for interference and for that cheap hit on Eller. Instead the dumbass refs send Moen off for standing up for him.


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

  64. idle says:

    How about these for Emelin:


  65. Mondou6 says:

    Panthers tweet:
    GM Dale Tallon has “no comment” on Krys Barch ejection for racial slur aimed at #Habs PK Subban …”I don’t know what happened”

  66. Florida is a team full of pussies. No wonder they are called the cats.

  67. slapshot777 says:

    Refs have be giving it to the Habs all season. Any Montreal player that looks so much as sideways at their opponent a penalty gets called.

    The officiating and the League has become a sham and only getting worse.

    The greatest league in the world has lots of stains on it these past few years. Maybe a good time to start a rival League to give them some competition.

  68. twilighthours says:

    Re: Boone’s comment on how kaberle has transformed the PP.

    Yeah, transformed it from one that sucks to one that sucks ever-so-slightly less.


    • idle says:

      The results have not been as good as hoped I’m sure but he has at least settled them down when they do gain control in the offensive end. It has looked better and at least scoring at least 1 every game or two.

      Difference is that when Mab & Wiz were brought in to help they were the trigger men. Kab is the setup man who still needs a trigger

  69. JasonM says:

    LOL, Campbell destroys Eller without the puck… they get a PP and he gets no call.


    This is why the NHL sucks.

  70. krob1000 says:

    Late hits are as dangerous as anything in the game…..that was way too late….drives me nuts….they focus on “blind side”….that much time after the puck is gone is as bad or worse

  71. Bertuzzi says:

    If the Habs lose, at least it was a fun game to watch. Sans JM.

  72. solomio says:

    Panthers starting to take some nasty late shots at the Habs

    “I figure PG has one or 2 moves left to bring the Habs that extra step closer to perhaps being the best in the league.” – Einstein

  73. Clutch10 says:

    Starting to get frustrated with the refing let everything go one night call everything the next, imagine how the players feel.

  74. NLhabsfan says:

    Few questionable calls tonight.
