Liveblog: First home win of the season


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.


  1. NCRhabsfan says:

    Who were those guys in red-white and blue and where have they been all season? Wow, who woulda thunk it? Cole and Max Pac were beasts out there tonight.

    So, can they find THAT again tomorrow night? Boston isn’t off to a great start either.

    Congrats Carey. On to 200!

  2. HardHabits says:

    Weber’s goal was the turning point IMO. Not to take anything away from the Habs but it appears to me that the Flyers underestimated them tonight.

  3. Mr. Biter says:

    Great game. 2 points:
    1) CP no pink pads
    2) JM keep Cole on PP

    Mr. Biter

  4. t1tan5 says:

    This was one small step in the right direction. Big test tomorrow to see if we can repeat tonight’s solid effort!

  5. dre1744 says:

    All is well in Hab land again!!!!!!!

    Just goes to show we don’t need Gomez in our line up!!!!!!

  6. Timo says:

    Marc Denis – how do you take that performance and carry it to the Boston game?

    WTF kind of question is that? How do you answer that? I put it in my back pack and take it on the plane with me as a carry-on? Man… seriously, do people get jobs on TV?

  7. 24moreCups says:

    Been waiting for that triple low 5!

  8. savethepuck says:

    The team finally got a few good bounces tonight and took advantage of it. Tomorrow night, they pass Boston in the standings.

  9. habstrinifan says:

    Cool! Forgot this feeling.. the win was great but the hockey from the habs.. i only watched last two periods… great.

    Glad Price’s 100 was a convincing WIN.

    And I ask the question again… what do you do with Gomez when he comes back.

  10. G-Man says:

    And I thought you people were astute. It was Pearn’s fault all along! Hmmph!

  11. Marc10 says:

    Congrats to Pricey on 100.

    Great game and we need more like that. Lots more… Let’s see how we go tomorrow against Colin Campbell’s Team.

  12. JayBee says:

    Price played fantastic.

  13. HABS_FAN_NS says:

    Great win tonight , Was worried in the first period but we turned it around nicely. I love beating Philly almost as much as beating Boston . Come on boys you can do it. 3-0 against my most hated teams would make my week

  14. JohnBellyful says:

    So who gets fired tomorrow?
    PP’s sacrifice wasn’t in vain

    • HabinBurlington says:

      Stickboy i figure is soon John. You don’t hold an official position with Habs do you?

      • JohnBellyful says:

        What … what … what are you suggestin’, H’B? You want me to be the next sacrifice, after I’ve given 50 years, three marriages, two firstborns and a normal life to this team? Geez, it’s never enough with this bunch.

  15. kerrgte says:

    Great to see our boys playing with gusto and having a good time.

    Finally !! Great to see, and what a relief.

  16. HabFanSince72 says:

    Bloody Flyers. They choose tonight to have an off game, and save Martin’s job.

  17. HardHabits says:

    Litmus test this week-end.

  18. kempie says:

    So, what just happened?

  19. chinahab says:

    To Mr. Boone: if I could make a constructive suggestion, when you’re blogging, can you include when a goal is scored? I cannot get the show here and am relying on the blog (or I’d like to). I can’t tell from your blog when they score or who scored. You said something about Cole making a rush but right around then Cammalleri scored (I had to go to TSN to figure it out). The comments are great, don’t get me wrong, but getting in the key points (i.e. goals especially) would be great. Thanks again for all your work; it’s really a great live blog.

    • kempie says:

      Good point. If you’re not watching and trying to follow the blog you sometimes can’t tell.

    • habstrinifan says:

      I agree! I get the game but I like following along with Boone’s blog too. Makes me feel part of a big crowd. So YES… when a goal is scored ‘announce’ it as if you were calling play by play Boone.

      And thanks for the blog….. you know we love ya… as much as JM luvd Perry!

  20. durocher says:

    Congrats to Carey! Three stars:

    1. Max Power
    2. Cole
    3. Carey

  21. HabinBurlington says:

    Nail Yakupov is highly overrated

  22. Stev.R says:

    So notes:

    Cole playing hard and fast, even if he doesn’t score, opens up space, draws penalties and gets us puck control. Thats how he should play every game whether he plays 20 minutes or 20 seconds.

    Eller, my boy, put the puck in. Not his best game tonight, but played well.

    Subban, quiet but effective.

    Gionta… invisible lol.

    Pacioretty – the skies the limit.

    Price: Love the fact that he plays great and we just expect it.

  23. Propwash says:

    Begs the question, are the Habs this good when things click, or are the Flyers overrated?


  24. durocher says:

    Third penalty drawn by Cole

  25. LL says:

    It’s now safe to say. 100 wins.!!!

  26. habstrinifan says:

    This is kinda what had all the optimisn in HIO before the season started. Suddenly they look like a team with solid parts… two power forwards …. two good young D-MEN…. star goalie.

  27. riddler says:

    Price the diff tonight. Held the fort.

  28. HabinBurlington says:

    never mind, poor judgemetn

  29. HabCez says:

    even though Pac has the 2 goals..
    Cole deserves 1st star votes..
    2 nd Pac
    3rd Perry for being the scapegoat

  30. Propwash says:

    Chicken wings!


  31. Bill says:

    What’s with the split-personality on this team? Against Winnipeg, Buffalo, and Philly they look great. Otherwise they look brutal. Which team is it? Hopefully this one … hurry up Markov … Take your time Scotty G …

  33. JD_ says:

    Freezer burned crap unsuitable for consumption by bovines on the house tonight, baby!

  34. Danno says:

    Fire somebody else on Friday please.

    It works like a charm

  35. habaholic68NJ says:

    What is going on? I’m not use to this type of play.

    *Listen to my instrumental tribute entitled “Habs at War” at

  36. JoeC says:

    STILL 2 forcheckers, holy shit JM you took the hint with PP being fired! your still a douche in my books

  37. RockinRey says:

    Very soft goal by the Flyers. But Cammalleri will take it to pad the stats.

  38. Sal says:

    Yikes!! Now that’s what I’m talkin bout…

  39. sims says:

    3 stars: price, cole, max (price #1 just cause of win 100)

  40. t1tan5 says:

    Chicken wings!

  41. Captain aHab says:

    Time to put Cole on the bench and break up that silly line before it goes to their heads.

  42. showey47 says:

    Nice goal by cammy,but i wish it was cole who would have scored it. He has been a beast tonight.

  43. Bill says:

    Cole did the dirty work on that one, he’s had a great night.

  44. Habso says:

    what great work by the Cole, DD, Cammy line!

  45. V says:

    See AK knock Giroux off the puck… that’s what happens when you put one of our guys up against one of those Philly midgets.

  46. HardHabits says:

    DD and Cole were awesome there.

  47. Timo says:

    That was ALL Cole!!! Man, I hope he pots one in soon. Great work!!!

  48. HabinBurlington says:

    GReat Great work by Cole

  49. Propwash says:

    I think we found a line!


  50. habsfaninboston says:

    Great pressure!

  51. stephen says:

    Cole’s name all over that one.

  52. Bill says:

    It’s a rout.

  53. durocher says:

    What a shift!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  54. floatingineather says:

    Mazeltov Carey, hundreds more

  55. habstrinifan says:

    I am suddenly looking forwrd to the Bruins GAMES

  56. Habbu says:

    Pop goes the Molson…….welcome home my sweet little amber ale……hmmm….quite the refreshing beverage.

  57. HardHabits says:

    So JM lives to coach another game.

  58. LL says:

    Poor Flyers,they look like pre-Pearn firing Habs.

  59. Mondou6 says:

    What happens when regulation time runs out, and we have more goals than the other team?

  60. Habso says:

    Pleks gets mugged and somehow gets a penalty for it.

  61. Coach K says:

    I’m really liking how how the Habs forwards are stopping on the puck tonight following a broken play or turnover instead of making a big loop or doing a lazy”flyby”. That kind of attention to detail is what leads to wins while the other stuff explains their more recent fate.

  62. C_exacte says:

    JM’s writing down in his notebook, remember to buy Max-Pac a car and a case of beer for Pearn!!!

  63. icemachine says:

    How the hell does Lee have a job in the NHL?

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

  64. HabsFanMTL says:

    giroux got 2 xtra minutes

  65. sims says:

    Chris Lee…anyone know where he lives?

  66. NLhabsfan says:

    Another lousy call by the refs.

  67. showey47 says:

    how did we end up getting one????

  68. HabinBurlington says:

    How the eff does plex get called for that

  69. Habbu says:

    What did I just say?

  70. Propwash says:

    Bonehead hockey commences….


  71. CHimbote says:

    Nokelainen and Blunden better than Palushaj and Enqvist…

    … Waiting for Emelin Mr JM

  72. Habifax says:

    With all the guys they lost / traded I don’t think this flyers team is as good as last year with or without Pronger

  73. Sal says:

    When they play a physical game they definitely play better…Cole awesome tonight. PG a Genious, yes?!
