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.

    1 word Gomez

    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!

    Well done Scotty.

    You’ve earned your pay.

    Now you can relax and float around for the rest of the season.

  10. Danno says:

    Pierre Houde just uttered the forbidden word!


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

  11. punkster says:

  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.

  68. Duracell3 says:

    So, Tim Thomas wants to stand by Catholics.

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

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

    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

  71. Danno says:

    Bourque seems to always shoot too high & over the net lately


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

  72. Storm Man says:

    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 …

  73. Chuck says:

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

  74. Chuck says:

    C’mon… Nashville!
