    I’d Go with Eller

  2. alwayssunny says:

    at least we have a chance in the shootout tonight.

  3. HabinBurlington says:

    If Marc Crawford was our coach would our shooters be Staubitz, Blunden and Gorges?

  4. punkster says:

    Great couple of periods and OT. Don’t care who wins now…but GO HABS GO!!!

    ***Subbang Baby!!!***

  5. Here comes the Gimmick. So tell me, who played in New York yesterday? Looks like they tool off yesterday and came to play tonight. Although the Caps aren’t playing like they want it that badly. One point will help this. We don’t need the win.

    Is it just me, or has Campoli actually played a good game tonight.
    Only one screw up all game.

  7. Phil C says:

    Ted Leonsis is going to have an aneurysm watching this.

  8. The Dude says:

    DD will win it again!

  9. jedimyrmidon says:

    We’re making the caps look like a junior team

  12. WOOOO

    Plekanec got his 50th point tonight.
    Pacioretty got his 60th point tonight.
    Cole keeps leading the team with 32 goals, damn steal of the FA.
    Budaj has been good.

  13. HabinBurlington says:

    Is it just me or has Ovechkin been virtually invisible tonight?

  14. DD’s way off tonight. Not shooting. Isn’t that a basic 4 on 4.

  15. JIMVINNY says:

    Gotta laugh when Ovy gets outplayed by Campoli.

  16. What the hell is Campoli doing out there?

  17. Kimberly2u says:

    Cole got run over and hit by the puck and still gets up

  18. HabinBurlington says:

    I think Cole was more than a little pissed after that shift.

  19. shootdapuck says:

    For those who care is Washington’s blue line bad or what?

  20. punkster says:

    Have to chuckle at the negative comments about Markov. He’s going to be just fine.

    ***Subbang Baby!!!***

  21. slapshot777 says:

    Sad officiating missed holding the stick by Washington at least the Habs would have had the last two minutes of the game on the PP.

  22. Bripro says:

    Solid effort. Too bad it doesn’t mean anything.

  23. jedimyrmidon says:

    Not bad, not bad. Thought the Habs would do faaar worse.

  24. danhabsfan says:

    Leafs have to win now

  25. habsfan0 says:

    Laffs win! which means Habs win!

  26. What a move by Cole! What a Monster!

  27. Kimberly2u says:

    I’m trying to stay positive about us winning and not mentioning OT or a shoot out…damn it slipped out

  28. Eller won’t put up points with Geoffrion and Blundan on his wings.

  29. At least Eller skates it in and doesn’t drop it in. Hate that Chase BS.

    4-3 Laffs. nailbiter.

  31. Kim, how ’bout a little Gimmick tonight?

  32. That bit of skating by Budaj could have ended very badlly

  33. Bripro says:

    Wow, that was too close!

  34. Propwash says:

    Wow, Budaj!

    Bourque needs some hand-eye coordination…

  36. Storm Man says:

    Blue jackets 3-1 over the Blues at this point? What is going on? Take it manparts and HH will need some milk and cookies again.

  37. Oh, goody, now we get a PP… can we wave it? Please? I know I said it last time, but they had at least some shots.

  40. Boos ringing out

  41. danhabsfan says:

    Seriously… they call that.
    The Refs need to be reviewed and some need to be canned… this is terrible for the game to have bush-league referring.

  42. jedimyrmidon says:

    The guy ran into Pleks stick… I thought that that wouldnt be considered tripping?

  43. Bripro says:

    Nice Dive! Give Perreault an Academy Award!

  44. Propwash says:

    What. A. Dive.

    Leafs are pulling away. We need this one.

  46. Kimberly2u says:

    I’d like to see Budaj get a win

  47. shootdapuck says:

    The normally hibernating Semin and Borque have awakened from their long sleep and hungry!

  48. Phil C says:

    Nice glove snag by Budaj on the tip.

  49. tote-road says:

    Andrew Ladd just pummeled Hedman

  50. seriously Boone? Budaj?Nice guy maybe, but not a great second.

  51. Now it’s Washington. Looks like the Turd period taking over.

    Serge Savard found the right candidate!

  53. habsfan0 says:

    4-2 Laffs.

  54. You can let Semin walk in like that. RDS said good how Gorges recovered even after letting Semin get the puck… Huh, really?

    5 SOG on their last PP. Yep, Team A is playing the 3rd…so far.

  58. Who was the Canadiens who was just chatting with Neuvirth there. Looked like they were talking sports there while the play was going on?

  59. Great Gorges series and Eller. Gonna be great! PP was great there.

    A donut. It’s Don Koharski. He’s watching the game with Jim Schoenfeld.

  61. habsfan0 says:

    3-2 Laffs.

  62. mfDx says:

    Finally! Markov and PK have switched sides for the power play. Markov hasn’t been on the right side since his lovely one timer to PK in his second game back.

    Sent from my CHphone

  63. At least they got some shots… no goals, but some shots…. again, no goals…

  64. HabinBurlington says:

    Yah Markov sure looks like Kife out there!!!!

  65. habsfan0 says:

    Halak leads St. Louis to the Stanley Cup and wins Conn Smythe Trophy as well.

    On HIO, pandemonium ensues, as Halak vs Price controversy erupts causing number of posts to hit an all time high, crashing server.

    • 69HABS says:

      Never going to happen. Halak can’t play 4 games in a row with out being pulled!

    • HabinBurlington says:

      You just had to stir the pot didn’t you.

    • Bill says:

      First of all, St. Lou AIN’T winning the Cup! No scoring depth.

      Second, most Habs fans would be happy for Halak, while recognizing that Hitchcock is making both Blues goaltenders look considerably better than they actually are. With no disrespect to Halak, who is definitely good … but he’s not as good as his stats, and neither is Elliot (whose stats are better than Halak’s).

    What a play by Markov

  67. Rob D says:

    Actually watched the Hot Stove for the first time this year. Andy of Milbury saying the Habs shouldn’t think it’s going to be the 50`s again with they dynasty et al.

    WTF is he smoking anyway? I think mngmt, might be aware that times have changed. Between him and Cherry…ignorance is bliss. And profitable!

  68. jedimyrmidon says:

    No penalty shot?

  69. Pucknut says:

    Cole seems to have had some influence on Patches

  70. Bripro says:

    Wideman again….Woo Hoo.

  71. Can’t we refuse the PP? Please, please…

    Maybe they can turn this around in to a win….go Habs go

    • Wow! That’s the kind of habs fan I haven’t heard from most of this year. Go Habs Go, but… Edmonton lost and we want one in the top three, so go partway Habs GO

  73. Mondou6 says:

    So when we went into “rebuilding mode”, we ended up trading for Bourque and Geoffrion?

  74. Kirk is having a similarly difficult year in Carolina. Only St. Louis is showing how to turn a team around.

    • Phil C says:

      Muller is 23-18-12 in 53 games. The Hurricanes have the best record in their division since the all-star break. I think that’s a dramatic turn around given what he has to work with.

    • Bill says:

      Muller: 23-18-12, .547% as head coach in Carolina. Not exactly struggling, no. Natural coach.

      EDIT: Haha, looked like everyone here was asleep. but people jumped all over this.
