Liveblog: A 4-1 loss, and last-place Canadiens move on to Florida

MathieuPerreault
POSTGAME AUDIO: Carey Price | Rene Bourque

The Canadiens ride their black cloud south to the Sunshine Stae.
At least they finally scored a goal against Washington, breaking a dry spell of 260:14 stretching back to last season.
The Capitals broke the game open with two goals in 16 seconds during the second period.

    I predict the Habs won’t score again this season! Teams know they only have one scoring line. Contain the Two and a Half Men and that’s it. The word is out and teams are taking advantage of it.

    This teams sucks in its present state.

  2. habsperspective says:

    When I hear the words powerplay, campoli, kaberle, and gomez, in the same sentence, I want to hurt someone.

    This has to be the most pathetic group of Individuals in the entire NHL.

    How does PG still have this job. Disgusting.

  3. habsfaninboston says:

    Awful call.

  4. RJ says:

    Bourque really flying out there. Thought the knock on him was inconsistency. To be inconsistent you need to be both good and bad. When has he been good? Waste product.

  5. habsfaninboston says:

    Awful PP.

  6. HardHabits says:

    So do you think other fans that are hoping their teams make the play-offs look at the schedule and see upcoming games with the Habs and are already banking those points?

  7. mrhabby says:

    and why was budhai not starting.

  8. FlyingFrenchie says:

    Boone- “Price gets a rest in Florida”
    It’s about time..The rest of the team has been down there since October.

  9. aj says:

    What we are seeing right now is the Habs doing a successful job losing this year. Bravo!

  10. bellcentre hotdog says:

    Habs a defeated hockey team.

  11. MannyR says:

    As much as I hate to say it, I prefer watching the Leafs. At least they try. Their goaltending just blows.

    • habsfaninkw says:

      I haven’t quite reached that stage of desperation quite yet … but the fact that I’m even close is about as depressing as it gets. WTH happened to this team – no talent, no pride, no nothing. An utter and total disgrace.

  12. alwayssunny says:

    I’ll admit I expected a lot more intensity from some of our veterans like Kaberle and AK, and Campoli. Half a game to go, come on boys. It’s almost like they are taking that playoff spot for granted.

  13. Goal cumming Boone? It’s not even breathing hard!

  14. Captain aHab says:

    Season changing PP coming up….

  15. I hope we get shutout and lose 10-0.

    Need changes coming. Major changes.

  16. Mondou6 says:

    In all seriousness though, I don’t think we aren’t trying, I think we just have a *LOT* of players who are mediocre, and none who are elite.

    Mediocre players can’t score, and can’t defend, which is what we see most nights.

  17. The Gonk says:

    Besides the 27th, the only thing to look forward to for the remainder of the season is the return of Markov. Hopefully Markov can show some life and be a factor for next year.

  18. duffy says:

    SHUT OUT ,SHUT OUT,SHUT OUT , MAN THIS TEAM SUCKS!!!

  19. mrhabby says:

    the frustration mounts…

  20. aj says:

    I’m watching the game right now at RDS, they were making assumptions during the 1st intermission on what the Habs will be come draft day. They gave our team a 3rd placing at %14 which consecutively, they rated that the 1st draft will go to Columbus and 2nd will be Edmonton.

    If the second ballot will go to the Oilers, this will be the 3rd year they will get a high draft pick. Now, they will have probably a Hall, Nugent-Hopkins, Grigorenko line. Sadly, one of Patrick Roy’s boys in his Remparts team won’t be going to Montreal after all.

  21. MannyR says:

    What a pathetic performance.
    They should be ashamed to wear the CH.

  22. EastCoastHab says:

    For those of you bashing Price, there are 20+ reasons for this crappy team before you get to him.
    Oh yeah, then the owner, managment, coach, GM, assistant GM, scouts, water boy, trainer, zamboni driver……..

  23. This franchise is just one big flat joke! And the tech guys ban those that say so. Even their blog is a goof!

  24. Mondou6 says:

    I think we’ll get a goal in this game. We’ll get a few PPs in the 3rd, or a 5 on 3 or something, and it will bounce in.

    So we’re probably looking at 4-1 or 5-1.

  25. Danno says:

    Not even mad anymore.

    Or sad.

    Just numb.

    Are they even trying?

    P….U

    Thats it Thats all

  27. hablifting says:

    Fire the entire head office. Trade away the Vets for picks. 18 years of this, it’s time.

  28. otter649 says:

    No Roman Hamerlik tonight is he hurt ?

  29. theox_8 says:

    how about them redsox

  30. Adidess says:

    I have seen Eller get benched for much less. That play was irresponsible.
    I’m still serene. 18+ % of getting the 1st pick.
    Ok 3-0, now that’s really embarrassing… Can this misery end now?

  31. Stev.R says:

    We got em right where we want em, boys

  32. ffenliv says:

    Did Price try to pull himself, and then got sent back in? That doesn’t bode well. of course, the Habs have no history of trading away franchise goalies who go on to star in the league for another 10 years after they leave Montreal.

  33. Timo says:

    Every move this guys make screams “season over”. Shameless scum.

  34. Kimberly2u says:

    We are the worst team in the league…how sad

  35. Mondou6 says:

    I was just polishing my paper clip collection. Did I miss anything?

  36. The Dude says:

    7 million per year for Price,I think not!

  37. habs17 says:

    ill say it again, i feel sorry for price the guy is doing everything

  38. Bertuzzi says:

    I would like to think that this will be better next year, but logic tells me that the Canadiens will be missing the playoffs for many years to come.

  39. Captain aHab says:

    Oof! Holy crap they stink!

  40. manu07 says:

    So I just turned on the game and saw. Washington score 16 seconds apart. I guess the team has also jumped on the tank wagon

  41. ffenliv says:

    Rotate Price and Budaj, one game each, the rest of the year. Budaj could use a chance to play, and Price needs not to play 80 games.

  42. The Jackal says:

    Man that puck was stopped before it crossed the line, it just squeezed through the pads… and that doesn’t matter because they just scored again.

  43. HabsFanInSaintJohn says:

    Another sad display…poor Price…why would he ever want to re-sign with this sad team

  44. HardHabits says:

    If Price plays more than 60 games next season the Habs will get another lottery pick.

  45. 24moreCups says:

    Well this game just went to shit, I’m going to go check on the Bulldogs game.

  46. habsfan0 says:

    BOO DAJ…

  47. EastCoastHab says:

    I am not a professional athlete but anytime someone taunted my team, or made fun of my team (Ribiero, Chimera) it would piss me off so much, but these guys just take it on the chin.
    And now Ovechkin scores????

    F$%K this!

  48. Captain aHab says:

    So which player will be asked to tell the reporters that the Habs must play with more urgency after the game?

  49. habsfaninboston says:

    Puck hit AK in the face. Maybe that will wake him up.

  50. FlyingFrenchie says:

    Boone- “They are thin and soft on the back end.”
    Okay…so you go to ladies aerobics … We get it!
    Please refrain from sexual innuendos.
    I’ll have to reset my pacemaker.

  51. Bertuzzi says:

    price + breakaway = goal

  52. Horrible defense. Price playing his heart out and D can’t do shi*.

  53. habs17 says:

    i actually feel bad to price, this team absolutley sucks and we just hang him out to dry

    Listen to the Smart Dog. He knows his poop!

  55. Dulljerk says:

    Boone, the whole team is thin and soft on both ends.

    “Is the little dog going to yap, or is he going to bite?”

  56. showey47 says:

    Not sure which coach runs the PK but if the coaching staff is getting axed this summer i think we should keep the guy who is responsible for our PK being #1 in the league.

  57. Nova Scotia Voyageurs says:

    Just got back…watching Bachman Turner reunion in NY on HiFi …..miss anything?

  58. Danno says:

    It’s the Carey Price show.

    And not much else…

  60. Adidess says:

    I like how stats can be deceiving and laughable, really.
    Gomez: 2 goals over the last 3 away* games. You wouldn’t know the guy has scored 3 goals total in over a year of playing… Hahaha!

    *edit

  61. FlyingFrenchie says:

    Boone ” Gomez and Bourque got good chances off speed”
    Imagine what they could do with Cocaine!

  62. JIMVINNY says:

    these f*cking idiots haven’t called jack squat all night, and they call that?

  63. Dulljerk says:

    I’m sorry, but I find AK46 to be very weak on the puck. His forecheck is lazy at best.

    “Is the little dog going to yap, or is he going to bite?”

  64. Captain aHab says:

    Patrick Holland is still racking up points.

    Gomez really attacking that net, go Scotty

  66. topher5468 says:

    Does it count that Gomez is in the net,

    “It’s not an obsession, It’s a way of life..”

  67. Man, I just turn my back for one second and they’re losing again!

  68. habs17 says:

    Wow Gomez PLAYING GREAT

    The last time i got this excited was during a Lawrence Welk Marathon.

  71. naweed235 says:

    what do you guys think is the chance that G. Molson realizes that the product he is putting on the ice is an embarrassment to all us fans and pushes to buy out both Kaberle and Gomez contracts that put this team in a choke hold?
    I am truly ashamed to watch this BS … they had threw this game before it even started…
    Like I said before any team that has Kaberle, Campoli, Diaz, Weber (AHLers or at best 7th D on any team) on the same blue line, deserves to be in the last place…
    SOFT ! 0 GRIT !
    truly sad

  72. habs001 says:

    Many things went bad this year but gauthier has to take the fall…i mean if we had houle,cherry or billy bean as gm at worst we would be 2 positions lower..lol
