Man, just how bad was Perry Pearn?
AUDIO of General Manager Pierre Gauthier in French and English
Best part of this W?
It shuts up the radio pundits .. for a while.
Ok get ready for the Flyers Goon Show…comin up
Laviolette putting Couturier on the PK to show him he trusts him.
Jacques – now there’s something worth writing on that notepad of yours.
This is a much more aggressive fore-check than I’ve seen yet this season from the Habs.
They are lucky to have gotten out of the first tied as they were completely dominated in that period. Laviolette’s TO seemed to have inspired the wrong (right, for us) team.
Our 4th lines last shift had like 4-5 bodychecks, was great to see.
AK is so on the verge of something all the time
The team looks like they are “supporting” each other tonight. Something Gio said wasn’t happening at the first intermission on TSN.
AK go to the net……..I am not going to tell you again
tomorrow in boston will be the real test
Still want to complete this one with a passing grade.
Interesting to see if Price starts tomorrow
Tomorrow …in Boston…..OH SH!T!
As much as I hate to admit it, this game could have been much much different if Simmonds had buried a few of his chances before the game got out of hand. Having said that, I guess the time finally came that the habs had the bounces go their way, and wow I love how they’re playing with confidence now, especially against such a “smash mouth” team like the flyers.
That weasel-faced goof Chris F Lee is going to make another lame call any time now.
“Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”
Jagr has still got thE goods.
Guy is nuts.
I wonder if Habs have turned into a team that other teams expect to be an easy win and then boomski! Habs explode.
OK I know I’ll get weird looks for this one. But what do you do with Gomez when he comes back?
No weird looks at all. Its a fair question that I have been asking as well. Who says we have to let him come back … give him the Redden treatment. It’s clear that Eller is a significant upgrade.
“Shut up and play against him” – Bob Gainey (2011 Heritage Classic)
I’ll take the blame for the poor start and the credit for tonight’s game,so far.
I had tim thomas in a hockey pool(a friend picked my team for me) and traded him away yesterday for Quick. Just too much bad mojo having him as my goalie. Also had a ring tone that said “the Montreal Canadiens win the stanley cup” changed it today.
notice that wasn’t a full body check, thats how strong Hal Gill is, he merely pushed him a little and almost crushed the guy, imagine if Gill really body checked like chara does?
Man, without Pronger, Carcillo and Richards in the lineup, the Flyers have noticbly lowered their Massengill Quotient.
Shaddup Pronger Pronger Pronger….we are a different team with Markov ya dummies
Thinking same thing
Whose worth more Cole or Gionta?
Hal Gill with a bodycheck?
Habs are on a roll!
Parade still on!
Tankwagon is emptying fast.
you guys crack me up 🙂
Yakupov just cancelled his french lessons.
Not really, people will get back on after the next loss or after a slugfest with the Bruins in 1 of the next 2 games.
Max Pacioretty is now averaging a point-per-game!
25 before 14
Heard a rumor that Flyers are shopping Hartnel
Oh if habs could get hartnell I would be a very happy man
He’d be less of a d**k in a Habs jersey.
Clearly there is no way to land Perry but I think Hartnell is a “poor mans” Perry. So if that’s true, he would be an amazing addition.
I Realized that after I replied…..I should have written Corey Perry and not just Perry in case some confused him with the other “Perry” in Habs news recently haha
now for some goon tactics a la flyers
Sal from the Hammer
Our players are playing bigger tonight. Great to see.
I was about to say the same thing.
On Pg video…………..it was ststed that it was in French & English……………….FRENCH……YES……ENGLISH NO………..so what was he saying?………..FRENCH reporters where in there like dirty shirts.as usual…………did not hear an ENGLISH ONE
Maybe we should hire Professor Xavier as head coach?
We’d never lose a game.
This is so much more like it.
Full Breezer 4 Life
Ole ole ole ole…ole ole……sounds better when you type it……
Good things happen when pucks and players go to the net!
We won a F/O. D takes the shot, a forward who drove to the net scored a goal. Just like a regular hockey team…
Imagine how good this team could be if they had kept some of the pieces that they gave up on?
PLEKS!! No PATCHES! !Yea Baby!!!
my god, as a habs fan it’s so refreshing to have a big power forward that goes to the net. when was the last, Leclair..?
you might be right…
The kid’s made of Patchmantium.
That’s the guy with the broken wrist right?
No. Ligament damage which is worse.
*Listen to my instrumental tribute entitled “Habs at War” at http://web.me.com/ptolias/Music/OtherOriginalMusic.html
Why’s that? I mean he wouldn’t be playing with a broken wrist.
Not trying to be a smart ass, I don’t know squat about sports injuries
Going to the net hard tonight! Thats the difference I think
Good for Max, I love this guy…
LUCKY THERES NO PRONGER TONIGHT~
Yeah, lucky for him. 😉
Wolverine strikes again
the boys are back??
whoa. Tomorrow will be a better indication.
No pronger, and the Flyers don’t have Carter and Richards anymore.
i was hoping the ole would be done for good
The dude who was supposed to be injured. Unreal.
I agree. Gomez sucks.
F-ing “Ole” — wish it would stop.
It’s embarrassing hearing Ole Ole with 11 minutes left…….
If the Habs win tonight I am going to end my boycott of Molson’s beer
Ooops as he puts down another empty Coors Light. oh yah a boycott
on’t want to hold my breath Mr. Boone. I’ve been holding it for two decades almost. We need major changes and a great game from the Habs will take the noose off of G and JM’s necks. Boston will beat us up and we’ll be licking our wounds for a long, painful season.

How the F do you not score here?
The Pink Helmet would have missed that.
Crawford has that “Je parle français” smile on him tonight.
How about it NHL? No fighting, just hockey?
Scott Hartnell is hard to like.
maybe… but he would look great in a Habs jersey!!!!
No, he’d be just as ugly, just better dressed.
Hartnell White Moen
I could live with ugly!!
Hockey isn’t a beauty contest.
I’d take Hartnell in a heartbeat.
Philly needs the fans to start the OLE OLE chant to get them fired up
Finally watching a game that is far less painful than my dentist appointment I had today.
Man, the guy I think deserves a tone of credit is Pacioretty. No one would have said a word if he sat this one out after that injury the other night – instead, he’s one of the best players on the ice.
The kid is a stud and an emerging leader on the team.
Subban looking better tonight.
Gill…well, the poor guy is really struggling.
Let’s keep pushing the pace; none of this sitting back on our heels waiting for them to bring the play to us……….are you listening JM?
Who knew it was all the assistant coaches fault? Best line i heard was who’s next the Equipment Manager?
Not to be a total downer, but…Is winning for the 2nd time in 9 games really cause for this much wild celebration?
Expansion teams set the bar higher than this.
Ok, sorry…Back to planning the Cup parade for our 2-6-2 team.
Yeah well its better than losing…
Some people just come here to whine and complain.
I know, you’re right…But still. I’d like to think we aspire to more than this.
One game at a time! (Hey I’m pulling out all the cliches tonight!!)
Hate to rain on your parade but we have not won yet.
Dude. If the Habs win tonight there’s going to be a riot.
THEY HAVN”T WON YET
#Habs Gauthier also said Markov could be back on ice as early as next week
good to know. I hope they don’t rush him though, I’d hate to see him have a setback.
Really? You sure he didn’t say back to icing his knee?
nice work by Cole. using his body and making things happen.
Next goal is huge
So were gonna have to fire a different habs employee before every game here on out. I would hate to be the stickboy in about 2 weeks.
I just received a pretty strongly worded emails concerning my “Tanking Theory”
Signed Palpatine Gauthier
I assume HH is referring to Emperor Palpatine from Star Wars.The Goat bears a slight resemblance to the Emperor in “Return of the Jedi.”
Ahhh okay. thanks I am guessing a guy named Han Solo would know more about than me. lol
I call PG Palpatine now. He’s an even badder ass than Darth Vader.
Hand written or typed the letter, I would think he wouldn t dare write on company computer.
Nice to get some breaks for a change. Three posts by the flyers, late goal for us in the first with confidence in the second.
Fearless prediction, if we go for the kill (don’t bet on it), we win. If we sit back, Flyers will tie it up in the third.
very true about getting the breaks.
Bag one early and keep the intensity up boys!!
It’s a matter of time until Cole starts potting goals.
Price 3 – 1 Brizgalow
… and waiting to see Emelin playing !!
Go Habss Go!!
perhaps the best period for the habs by far..
not counting the jets game where the jets.. by far made it too easy (mistakes)
also PK unit playing well.. and not over using Cammy on the PK unit.. was over used last game and it showed on the ice..
good to see Ak and Pac working some chemistry..
ohh and Cole getting PP exposure and showing everyone why he is a power forward..
note: lucky first though with all post..
Lots of fire keep going boys…………..it is so good to see it……………has been too long…..I BELIEVE!!!!!!
Nice 2nd period for the good guy’s…..fire Martin after Boston,lol
Can we fire Pearn again tomorrow?
Hahaa… Yes. We can rehire him tonight just to fire his ass tomorrow at 18:00.
Typical Phillthy flyer response, goon hockey. Expect more of the same tomorrow and saturday.
They’re not the same without Pronger.
It might explain why Hurricane Cole is in full force tonight. Still… Ole! Ole!
Now let’s see Cams and Eller bury a couple.
I have a feeling JM is in the room cautioning everybody to be cool & not run up the score.
one things for sure…flyers arent as rough and tumble as they used to be…
Whoever it was that commented on how well the grabovski trade is working out now that he took out pronger, great call
Cole looks frigging amazing. I feel like all he needs is to pot one and that’ll open the floodgates.
bryzgalov handles the puck on his stick as well as i work a vaccum
Cole, exactly the kind of player this team needed.
When he’s on.
you mean when he is played
Who knows? Maybe JM, knowing Cole is a big guy, was intentionally trying to light a fire under his ass. And is it ever on fire.
It seems the team is playing for each other, and not the coach or the fans. Good on them.
Good call for change.
Looks like blood. Could be 4 minutes.
