The Canadiens take three of a possible six points on their west-coast swing.
Solid effort in L.A.
Cancel the order for for Fire JM tee shirts.
Kings are running Pricey like crazy. I understand it’s the only way you’re gonna beat him when he’s playing like he is, but it still pisses me off.
How many times has Price been run at tonight?
3 or 4, no need for a big burly dman though eh….
Hands off our goalie.
I hate Dustin Penner. Reminds me of LaUseless. (Props to Shiloh for that name)
Hence we shall get him.
Price shaken up there? Or just taking a breather?
Full Breezer 4 Life
I’m at the game. Can you see me?
Yes.. yes we can. Quick grab a beer… it’s a commercial break.
are you the guy in the Kings jersey, or the habs jersey?
wearing the flyers jersey behind L.A. bench
I can’t see the Habs keeping Leblanc, can you? What for? Let him play on a top line in Hamilton instead of grinding away on the 4th in Montreal after Pacioretty comes back.
Playing with a lot more confidence than what we have seen in weeks.
Is that Beiber over the P.A. saying “Go Kings Go”?
that “go kings go” chant they play is uber annoying.
I think LA Loyalist does some voice over work for the Kings
Maybe Cammy should have his mom come to a few more games rest of the season.
Damnit! these damn afternoon games cut into my dog walking schedule. and I was gonna make a spaghetti tonight, but this has thrown my schedule way off!!
Ahhh, I got the big walk in at 2:30, gotta plan for these things man.
my freakin spaghetti is like 30 mins prep time and two hours cook time. and now I’m all off schedule. If I ever meet an NHL schedule maker I’m gonna have a few words for him.
Why is Gorges playing 1st unit/any PPmins and Weber and his shot sitting on the bench? Way to go JM! Coach of the year? Ya RIGHT!!
Dude the PP hasn’t looked this good in weeks
There seemed to be a fair bit of mugging on that shift
Only a matter of time and the PP will start to click if they keep up that intensity.
No call on covering hand with the puck… What are the refs looking at
Good PP, but they’re not doing anything exceptional. Just maintaining possession.
Subban can’t pinch to save his life.
AK is on fire this afternoon.
AK looking sharp on the PP.
Mike Boone is just okay
Cole is going to have to chip in to the rookie dinner. He missed 3 clear opportunities to sew this game up.
Is that you gary galley?
Haha…he didn’t mention rookie dinner did he?
No just the 2nd half of your sentence.
I’m going to have to be careful. Next thing you know I’ll be repeating PJ quotes. Next stop, a straight jacket.
It’s a good thing that ref called that goalie interference, or I would have thrown something at my tv costing me big bucks.
Geez. That was blatant.
Finally they called goalie interference
Darche in alone. Yup.
gonna miss seeing Leblanc for the Dogs games, but even happier that he’ll be replacing Gomez :p
When the tough gets going, the laughs start flowing. Like Price said, “Chill.”
JM feeling the AK love today, double shifting AK
That’s why Cammy doesn’t pass. He sucks at it.
Cole was too fast for his own good
How the heck was that not tripping on Cole?
What the hell is Zico?
Let’s keep our heads cool. Leblanc got an assist but it didn’t set up the goal. I’m a fan too but he’s not winning puck battles, getting great chances or for that matter making plays. He needs time to develop. He’s not failing but he’s not top 6 caliber yet, he will be, just not right now
he’s a kid. Montreal fans expect too much. these kids need time to assimilate to the NHL game. It’s not easy.
Absolutely, but what’s the rush? He’s not going to turn the season around. Let him play at the level that will give him most ice time to allow him to develop
agreed – but he has done quite well in Max’s absence
…Larry, Louis & Kostitsyn = sunshine
…better than a weekend in Maui
…well ? …almost
Habitant means PASSIONATE HOCKEY
nail on the head – or my head anyway
i like that as a 2nd or 3rd line once Max is back
Cole – DD – Max
Gionta – Pleks – Cammy
AK46 – Eller – LL
White – Nokia – Moen
Hahahahh. Kid has one assist and people want to trade Pleks? The average Hockey IQ in this forum is quite low
Will PG trade Gionta? or will the fact that hes wearing the C keep him around longer than he deserves..
Gio is almost as useless as Gomez. Actually maybe even more useless, atleast Gomez is good at gaining the offensive zone….and then passing it to the other team.
So if the Habs hang on in 3rd which forward comes out of the lineup? Darche anyone anyone Darche?
they dressed 7 defencemen today
Seriously, what are these sticks made of? Particle board?

Richards has a dingleberry, how the hell am i supposed to take him seriously like that?
great cause – sported a dirty muzzer myself for the entire month and our team raised over $1000
Dingleberry = booger. Are you still pissed off at me? holy hell you really hold a gudge
dingleberrys are an inevitable part of moustaches
and no way guy – not mad – but you spelled “grudge” wrong
I hate English, what can I say. :p
Never grown a Mo but how do you get more snots from growing one?
Anyone listening to this interview with Mike Richards and thinking why so many free agents have passed on Montreal?
What’s there to wonder? he basically said it himself, he can relax at the beach and not get hassled by rabid fans. He doesn’t have to live and play under the microscope, he doesn’t have to answer the same stupid questions and get hassled by hundreds of cameras.
I remember watching Your Canadiens and Eller was donating blood some some douche tells him he should score more goals. I’d get sick of that shit too
Truth. My few ( but good) NHL connections are clear about it: while these guys all work hard and want to win, they much prefer to live in relative anonymity (and warmth). Thats why TB, fla, la, Phoenix are desirable places.
Well playing for the panthers and phoenix generally means you don’t are about winning. I don’t doubt what your connections tell you though.
check the standings. Panthers are winning, and they have better attendance than winnipeg. and believe me, living here is nice, especially if you’re getting paid milions to do so.
but Win has a limited arena size, I think it has the smallest capacity
I am sure Richards is hating the nightlife in L.A. as well.
did you see the clips of LA before the interview started?
take a look at the feature cabbie did on his house in LA – id be THRILLED to be in his position
I don’t think you can ask for more than that considering it’s our third game in four nights on the road. Great game so far. Just like in SJ, there’s no quit in these guys.
If I had one wish it would be that Cammy or Gionta could put the game away for us. We definitely need one more.
You really have to love Carey Price’s play. Without him, we would be well on our way to HardHabits tank rebuild.
scored the first goal in all three games so far
blew it in anaheim
blew it 3 TIMES in SJ
hopefully tonight is a different story
but FOUR blown leads does not equal “no quit”
sssshhhh everyone PJ is talking…I am on the edge of my seat…oh what will he say next…
second place is just the first loser
What has happens to Gionta? Hasn’t played well all year.
Misses a healthy Gomez!
Him and Cammy both.
We’re watching a team who’s not even in the playoffs, and are further away than they look because of games played. Not many HAVE been playing well
Leblanc, Eller, and Kostitsyn is a great line….
Or leblanc and eller are great and its just working out. one of the two.
Or AK is playing great and Leblanc and Eller are working out.
No AK.. no goal
“Emelin’s the real deal.”
Wow!!! Cole gets a penalty cause the other guy’s stick is made out of a toothpick????
Anyone else think we should keep Leblanc over Palushaj?
Come for Habs, Stay for Weird
Heck yeah. But if JM needs someone to play 5-6 minutes each game, then send both of them down. Call up Blunden.
Like it, but then LL has to play real minutes
If Cartman from Southpark doesn’t get the fans pumped what will? American teams love that corny shit, I remember Carolina repeatedly playing sound bite from The Simpsons during the All Star game.
I think that’s hilarious! Cartman’s Go Kings Go! lol It’s original. Their soundbites rock too.
I guess I’m old fashioned
Pricey’s a stud.
Eller number one center
Leblanc number two center
Desharnais number three
Bye Plekanec Gomez
Free money good future
Plekanec one center
Eller two center – Leblanc his winger
Desharnais number three
much more reasonable plecks is the best two way forward on this team.
DD with power forwards #1, Cole and Patches
Plex is the prototypical #2 with cammi and gio
Eller puck position #3 with AK and LL
Yah can really understand the need to get rid of Plex….. ?
Leblanc has been converted to wing, and Pleks ain’t going nowhere.
I agree Eller deserves more ice time. Love him with AK.
Pleks is an unbelievably good player and his PK abilities are unnatural. Why would you trade him?
Defensive shell all the way from now on. Should be a great period.
He just tapped te stick a bit and it shattered into 10000 pieces
Cole gets about 10 slashes moving the puck up the ice and then they call him for slashing… stupid
Funny, the Ref didn’t call that earlier this period when it happened to Gionta.
NEW NHL break a stick call a penalty… Stupid
Sissy stick call!
FFS, two in a row to Cole. Though the first one was total BS.
The Count just said Tabarnak!
“Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”
Anyone having trouble with this site, or just me?
The site sometimes, but I’ve never had any trouble with you.
GET OUT OF THE DAMN WAY REF
Is anyone else sick of Camma-lamey half trying for the puck?
So I remember numerous posters saying Emelin was dud after his first few games.
Was never I Deuce, love the guy.
No, it was no one I can remember. I certainly didn’t think it was you.
I get a kick from some of the keen talent scouts on here sometimes.
you should have seen the stuff written about Eller here last season. I remember only me and Berkshire recognizing the effort and heart this kid puts into every shift.
Hey, I said some nice things last season about Eller. Called him a fine feller.
I remember. I can’t understand how someone can’t see something special in Eller.
I added him to my favourite list within the first month last season.
Ok, all caught up now. Did you guys miss me?
speaking of missing hemorroids, just kidding timo
no worries, i can take a good jab.
I was about to type a response below, then I read your comment and couldn’t resist.
Habs miss Gomez!
thats kinda like missing a hemorrhoid.
Totally on Gill. It’s his job to tie the man in front up, specifically so tips like that don’t happen.
And Cole owes them one.
Saw that one coming.. ugh
ug…and Galley can hardly contain himself…that makes it even worse
Is Galley aware of the fact Cole has his pants undone when he gets like that, isn’t that what someone said earlier?
figures it would take a dirty, ugly, flukey goal to beat Pricey.
Whats with the two idiot fans behind the L.A. bench in Flyer jerseys?
Guess i shouldn’t say idiots, but why where flyer jersey to a hab/la game.
Flyers fans aren’t too bright. They don’t do too well with calenders and stuff.
Maybe they are Mike Richards jersey’s? lol
What are there 2 Flyer fans sitting behind the Kings’ bench? Can’t read a calendar?
Ahh chuck you beat me by a fraction of a second.
So much for JM trying to ring in younger players. BTW, is the Boone Jinx just a cover for his pessimim??
I remember when SK74 made a seemingly impossible no look pass cross-ice to Grabovski for a beauty goal. I was so excited about the future of those guys. It got me off my seat. Hopefully things unfold differently with this crop of youngsters.
the French Great Dane..with Tits? yea lame I know…maybe i will come up with something better later
That is a terrible call. Cole was trying to get to the puck carrier, and Brown was between them. If anything, Brown was the one interfering. Cole was basically penalized for being stronger.
