Liveblog: Gorges pops one in OT

Moen against Phoenix

Josh Gorges doesn’t score often.
But when he does …
His first of the season produced a hard-earned road W for the Canadiens.

    I watched the Leaf game (can’t get the Hqbs game here in Ontario) and they looked awful. They got their a** handed to them by St Louis…but the blues couldn’t buy one. Scrivens stole it.

    Leafs win in a SO. Leafs had no business even being in the game…and their D is atrocious. Some teams just have years where they get all the breaks.

    “Worse hab team I’ve seen in years”: copied
    That’s the last comment I saw at 9:21 because I don’t sit by the computor during the game, I watch it on my big screen on RDS HD. Curious to see how comments have changed on here because the Habs bandwagon has to change shocks on a weekly basis. With all those people jumping on and off of it it’s no surprise.

    Spatch and Weber are both a minus 1, Emelin is even, so i guess he does deserve to sit!

  4. WindsorHab-10 says:

    I’ll ask again.
    Where
    is
    Cammalleri?

    And on the first turn it looks like Bandwagon is ahead of Tankwagon by a nose.

  6. Cdnman1 says:

    WTF …Leafs win in a shoot out. Freaken Halak!
    Number 25 in 2012!

  7. WindsorHab-10 says:

    I hope JM doesn’t make them protect a one goal lead by playing his awful system.

    WHERE’S MIKE CAMMALLERI?

      I’m just wondering the same!

      ………..

      “Thank you Cammy for making my day even more amazing!”

      I STILL BELIEVE. I WILL ALWAYS BELIEVE.

      Cammalleri: “I almost feel bad for a guy who plays an NHL career without experiencing what it’s like to be a Montreal Canadien”.

  9. HardHabits says:

    Both Moen and Spacek are playing for contracts. The funny thing is that the Habs would sorely miss both of them because at the moment (along with AK46) they are among the Habs best players.

  10. JoeC says:

    I cant believe im gonna say this

    Id rather have Ron Wilson coaching the habs right now…

  11. WindsorHab-10 says:

    The more I see Emelin play(he’s only played a couple), the more I like him. This guy will only get better. I hope JM doesn’t screw him up.

    Surprised I haven’t seen someone try to use the song “Mony Mony” in reference to Moen yet. Quite a few plays on his name thus far

    Newfoundland’s biggest Habs fan. Hands down.

  13. JD_ says:

    Just turned on the game to catch The Moenster™ nail one.

    Soccer practice on a Thursday night. Effin’ not good.

    Hope they’ve been playin’ well.

  14. Timo says:

    Good god… takes a year to put this child to bed. What’s the scoop. Are we winning yet?

  15. C_exacte says:

    Brunet looks like Jacques Demers long lost son!!! viva ’93!! break out the zazoo gear!

  16. Bill says:

    Emelin out there hitting everything that moves, but one mistake and he’s like quarantined.

    Habs need a defenceman like Emelin more than they need one like Diaz (not a knock on Diaz, just saying).

    Travis Béliveau, once again :)

    Got ‘em right where we want ‘em. We can protect that one goal lead now for an entire period. Well, barring any too many men calls, eh Jacques.

  19. JoeC says:

    Blunden got 12 seconds that period guys!!

  20. WindsorHab-10 says:

    I haven’t seen Mike Cammalleri. Is he injured?

    “Hate Bruins like a sickness”

  21. Corson27 says:

    Watch the count turn on the 1-3-1 in the third and we lose 3-2.

  22. Big Ted says:

    We have the Rocket and the Pocket Rocket… could Moen be the Mock-It Rocket?

  23. Cdnman1 says:

    Cole was a great pick up.
    Number 25 in 2012!

  24. JIMVINNY says:

    Gio seems to be finding his groove. Maybe he should take an early penalty more often.

  25. PrimeTime says:

    Hab nerds are losers!! Get a life!

  26. Chrisadiens says:

    Anyone know Moen’s career high goal mark?

    Yes!

    Nice top corner there by Travis “the hands” Moen. Guess JM will bench him now

  29. Chuck says:

    Travis Moen, sniper.

  30. axxerd says:

    Morn scores goals because go goes STRAIGHT to the net

  31. LL says:

    LMAO, Moen sucks…NOT

  32. HabFanSince72 says:

    Hey does anyone think the reason Gomez is not playing is that a trade is imminent?

  33. punkster says:

    Moen. Sniper.

    ***Subbang Baby!!!***

  34. Mark C says:

    Thought Moen had no hands?

  37. zozotheclown says:

    Great pass, lol Moen scores again

  38. Cdnman1 says:

    Great pass!

    Number 25 in 2012!

  39. Habsolutely says:

    Moen the lawn baby!!

    That turtleneck must be made of kevlar!! forget the christmas sweater this year, it’s Plex T-necks this year!!!!!!!!!

  41. HardHabits says:

    Martin playing 3 lines again. He’ll be skating two lines by the new year.

  42. HabFanSince72 says:

    Crowd is awful quiet. This being Phoenix they’re probably all eating.

  43. Cdnman1 says:

    Blues just tied the Leafs

    Number 25 in 2012!

  44. moan_for_moen says:

    its a good thing im a habs and raiders fan………

  45. LL says:

    PG goes through all the trouble to bring Emelin here, and JM doesn’t use him. Think PG will blow a gasket soon?

  46. HabFanSince72 says:

    This is the worst hockey I’ve seen in a while. Just atrocious.

  47. axxerd says:

    I have never shut on JM on here…but this latest benching of Emelin…….

    He makes one mistake and gets stapled to the bench? Does he have a shorter leash on guys from Russia & Belarus? Kostitsyn article this summer comes to mind

  48. TomNickle says:

    How do they bench Emelin after the horror show that Weber has been over the last five games? For close to a half dozen consecutive games Weber’s been blowing coverages, turning the puck over in all three zones, been soft on the puck and hasn’t been winning battles, but Emelin gets benched after a mistake.

    Unbelievable.

  49. twilighthours says:

    Man is “Schlemko” ever a bad name. It sounds like an invasive surgical procedure in the lower-body area.

  50. JIMVINNY says:

    Perfect low shot by Gio, and Moen doesn’t even get his stick on the rebound.

  51. t1tan5 says:

    If Moen had hands, he’d be an all-star?

  52. Habbu says:

    Looks like we are playing for a tie in regulation.

  53. HabFanSince72 says:

    I’m watching the Internet feed. It’s the Phoenix home station. You wonder who they are broadcasting to.

  54. axxerd says:

    I’m not a fan of Weber at forward…an I’m sure he isn’t a fan either. Do we need both Diaz and Weber at the risk of losing Emelin? (who we all know will go back to the press box as soon as we get another forward back)

  55. EricMelvin says:

    Damn, we even have fans in Arizona on the IR

    xkcd.com/904/

  56. Habbu says:

    Wish the Habs would forecheck like that

  57. morivera says:

    NYI winning 2-0. If they win and we don’t, we’re…um…not in the top 14 again.

  58. JoeC says:

    Even boone, calls out an Emelin error, but Diaz gets a free pass…..

  59. kempie says:

    Not to be a dink but, has Darche ever scored a goal in this league?

  60. Habsolutely says:

    gawd, if Chipchurra scores on us I’m gonna have a conniption fit.

  61. Captain aHab says:

    The line I’d like to see: Eller, Cole and Patch. First line minutes and leave them together for a few games.

  62. JoeC says:

    Hey look, Diaz did a blind pass in hsi own zone, betcha we dont see a remark about that.

  63. HabinBurlington says:

    That Palushaj rush had an AK look to it

  64. JoeC says:

    Why does everyone have a hardon for Diaz? i mean ive seen im do bad plays and no one sais a boo, but a good play and thats all i hear wtf haha

  65. Cdnman1 says:

    Nice line change!
    Number 25 in 2012!

  66. HabinBurlington says:

    Nice save Price

  67. Captain aHab says:

    Darche is everywhere! ;-)

  68. twilighthours says:

    Come on, Darche, use your speed!

  69. Cdnman1 says:

    Are you kidding me? holding? The zebras are at it again!

    Number 25 in 2012!

  70. HabFanSince72 says:

    Raffi Torres. LOL.

  71. JIMVINNY says:

    The hook on SPatcho that wasn’t called was way more blatant than that.

  72. Danno says:

    This bandwaggon has a wheel in the ditch and a wheel on the track
