Liveblog: GOMEZ!!!

The drought is over.
On a power play 9:50 into the third period, Scott Gomez scored his first goal in 369 days.
And for the first time since late October, your Montreal Canadiens have won three games in a row.

MORNING SKATE AUDIO: Raphael Diaz | Travis Moen | Max PaciorettyFrans Nielsen | Mark Streit

There might be something to this lucky tuque …

But it wasn’t easy.

Two late Islanders’ goals turned the game into a nailbiter.

Hat trick for Max Pacioretty.

    I support Scott Gomez

  2. The Gonk says:

    I dare Gomez to score again (this season).

  3. HabFab says:

    You have got to love a coach that has his team trying to score a goal in the last 5 minutes of the game up by 3.
    What a strange concept!!

  4. HabinBurlington says:

    Does Gomez get all 3 stars like Gagner did?

  5. tote-road says:

    “3P 6:27 Do the Islanders consider Aaron Ness an untouchable?”

    No. And the jury is out on whether or not Moulson would make a good owner.

  6. Mattyleg says:

    Man, there are more spectators at a Monday morning practice in Brossard!

  66. darkhorse says:

    It’s funny watching the Islanders feed of the game, the announcer keeps calling Gorges “Gore-ges”

  67. Bill says:

    I love the way Leblanc plays. He’s just always automatically going to a smart place on the ice … he sees a few moves ahead. That guy’s a real hockey player; I would compare him to a young Carbonneau. He’s gonna be so good for us.

    So, Tim Thomas wants to stand by Catholics.

    http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=387260

    Well, since the majority of Catholics in that country think employers should be required to provide plans that cover birth control at no cost…

    http://publicreligion.org/research/2012/02/january-tracking-poll-2012/

    Then it is only logical, that he supports that, and also standing by them in prayer for us:

    http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=387329

    tl;dr, Tim Thomas is either A) Incredibly uniformed , or B) A Canadiens fan.

  69. Chuck says:

    Love how when Emelin gets hit he immediately takes numbers.

  70. HabinBurlington says:

    Very nice feed there fromGomez

    Shiloh what does 3 goals on 12 shots get you? Give up?

    Back up for the blues pulled again… You have such a great eye for good players …

    Crazy… Islanders STILL have to pay Yashin $2.2 million/for the next 3 seasons.

    C’mon… Nashville!
