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.

    Oh. Were the Habs playing tonight?

  2. habsfaninboston says:

    God that was painful.

  3. boing007 says:

    Looks like the Bruins game was the last decent game we’ll see this team play for the rest of the season. What looked promising was just the last hurrah. ‘Blows Taps’.

  4. KEEP THE TANK GOING!
    Dump Gomez, Kaberle, Campoli; trade Weber, AK46 and taaaaaank!

  5. Mattyleg says:

    You kinda get used to losing, y’know?
    Losing a lot in general is easier to deal with than losing important games when there’s a lot on the line.
    So I guess I’m happy…?

    … no, no that’s not it.

  6. habsfan0 says:

    I’d say next game is a definite “must win” for the Habs.

    LOL

  7. bellcentre hotdog says:

    Habs are 0 for 6 on the PP and RC pulls the goalie?

    LOL

  8. HardHabits says:

    So when’s the protest?

  9. Clay says:

    I used to be indecisive. Now I’m not sure.

    At least the Habs are saving on the cost of soap, so few players break a sweat, there is no need for post game showers.

  11. disgustedhabsfan says:

    If they were a horse you’d have to shoot it.

  12. T-roy West says:

    I can’t stand to look at AK46 stupid looking face. He probably said that he wants to stay in Montreal so we don’t trade him then he walks in the summer anyways just to screw us out of getting something for him.

  13. SmartDog says:

    The game is in hand – Gomez AND Kaberle are out there!

    ————————————-
    Listen to the Smart Dog. He knows his poop!

  14. Habsbill24 says:

    Well, AK has been on fire all week. Really elevated his trade value.

  15. habsfan0 says:

    With Washington win tonight, it’s a sure thing Brian Burke won’t be amused.

    Trying to look for the silver lining.

  16. bellcentre hotdog says:

    With consistent non productive brutal efforts night after night, I wonder if Gomez feels any guilt about cashing his huge paychecks.

  17. Clay says:

    A little boy asked his father, “Daddy, how much does it cost to get married?” Father replied, “I don’t know son, I’m still paying.”

  18. Storm Man says:

    “who let the dogs out” PG’s ring tone.
    Oui this is goat.
    PG as the other 29 GM’s say hello… who is up for grabs on the Habs?
    Goat… Anyone you like but I have to wait till Geoff can be part of the call he is a little busy right now counting his profit from the seasons ticket and beer sales from this year.
    all 29 GM’s rolling on the floor laughing saying good thing you won all them cups as it could be another 20 years before this team sniffs one again with a owner like you have now.
    Oui goat out.

  19. Habsbill24 says:

    If Geoff Molson wanted to do something for the fans he should apologize on Monday for this god awful team and rebate 10% of the ticket prices for the remaining home games as a gesture for putting this putrid product on the ice. But don’t hold your breath……

    Dear Montreal Canadiens,

    HIT THE F***ING NET FOR ONCE!

    Love,
    The Smiler

    Ferraro is a JACKass!

  22. habsfaninkw says:

    Man are we brilliant. Negate 2 penalties thanks to Cole and PK. Not that it matters, we’re going down anyway, but I’m just sayin …

  23. habsfaninboston says:

    BS call.

  24. Clay says:

    Crowded elevators smell different to midgets.

  25. Sisky33 says:

    does Pk know what a wrist shot is??

  26. Boomer says:

    Anyone else watching TSN? Cole was pissed, it looked like he was yelling “Pass the F****ing puck” to someone on the bench after the PP. RAy Ferraro inbetween benches says “Cole is upset cause pucks aren’t getting to the net”… I’ve never seen COle so pissed

  27. habsfaninkw says:

    AK46 … what no blood … can’t even take on for the team??

  28. Habsbill24 says:

    I guess AK must have retired. I have not seen his name on the scoresheet with a goal or assist in weeks.

  29. Clay says:

    Some people say “If you can’t beat them, join them”. I say “If you can’t beat them, beat them”, because they will be expecting you to join them, so you will have the element of surprise.

  30. SUMO says:

    but alot of those shots are from waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay out

  31. Nina76 says:

    I don’t know why Price played to-nite. Wew are not going anywhere………….Have a rest Carey you need it……We are in last place so how come we do not have first pick. I don’t understand picks very well. Can someone explain it for me.THANKS

    • Clay says:

      We are in last for our conference, but picks go by the whole league rankings. So we are third last, I believe, overall.

    • 24moreCups says:

      Yeah I didn’t get it when Cunneyworth said recently that they are going be playing Price a lot until the end of the season lol.

      What have they been doing all year? And the season is pretty much over, I say give Budaj some games.

  32. MacHabFan says:

    Price has to be thinking “… why am I here? …. will have to text Patrick after the game for advise.”

  33. Old Bald Bird says:

    Thanks goodness. Satellite went down (in Ottawa area).

  34. Sisky33 says:

    We can’t keep a coach longer than 3 years without firing them and we can’t keep a good captain with out trading them excluding gionta right now… How can you do anything with that much change over?
    I MEAN LOOK AT NASHVILLE AND BARRY TROTZ… not a hockey market and they made it one…

  35. HardHabits says:

    The thing about parity in the NHL is that the standings make it look like the teams are close to each other but the reality is that there are only 10 teams out of 30 that are any good and have a legitimate shot at winning the Cup. Neither of these teams makes that short list.

    • Mr_MacDougall says:

      Roll 4 lines for the rest of the season, 3 sets of D. Let Buf, Car, TB, NYI… and hopefully EDM pull ahead.. 2nd overall pick is easily obtainable.. 8th playoff spot is a long shot, and for what? 4 painful games against the Rangers, no thanks.

  36. SteverenO says:

    a powerplay without Gomez!
    Thanks to the TV timeout.

    Steve O.

  37. Storm Man says:

    17 and 68 are not worth a flush down the drain.

  38. Clay says:

    I saw a woman wearing a sweat shirt with “Guess” on it…so I said “Implants?”

  39. habsfaninboston says:

    Would be nice if we can get the puck to the net.

  40. SteverenO says:

    The first sign ive seen that they actually practise their PowerPlay. Nokia was the key.

    Steve O.

  41. Old Bald Bird says:

    No sense trying to shoot the puck.

  42. alwayssunny says:

    I’m thinking about that saturday afternoon game years ago when we rallied to beat the Rangers. Been a few years since we did something like that but we can do it again tonight.

  43. vic says:

    Has anyone heard what the goast is doing these days

  44. SteverenO says:

    Maybe we can make a game of it.

    what are the odds that Gomez plays more than one minute on the pp

    Steve O.

  45. Clay says:

    A computer once beat me at chess, but it was no match for me at kick boxing.

  46. Boomer says:

    Great pass by Emelin on Bourque’s goal.

  47. Storm Man says:

    Grey Goose is going down nice tonight.

  48. Habsbill24 says:

    Well, they just got their weekly goal. They can all take the game against Florida on Sunday off.

  49. bellcentre hotdog says:

    Just to follow up on an earlier post:

    Habs have been shutout 7 times this season.

    Habs have scored 1 goal in 11 games this season.

  50. Sisky33 says:

    It would be nice to have another kovalev for balej trade …
    I mean the rangers did end up doing that to us with gomez for McDonagh but who are we kidding McDonagh was never going to play here because he was never in their plans.

    Our Drafting going back to 1991 hasn’t been the best.
    HAVE WE HAD A 2RD(we trade them for nothing) PICK WORTH KEEPING?? excluding 2007 draft? Out of 7 draft picks we draft 1 stud out of 7 every 7 years IMO trade our picks!!! excluding 2007
    Look at Our HISTORY!! we will trade them ALL AWAY!

  51. MacHabFan says:

    Another stroke of RC genius … get White out on the PP … wow!

    The saddest sight of the night is seeing Gainey watching the game with Markov and Darche.

  52. habsfan0 says:

    I hope the Habs didn’t use up their goal scoring quota for the week.

  53. habs17 says:

    yess the goal for tonight is fufilled: a goal

  55. Clay says:

    Some people are like Slinkies … not really good for anything, but you can’t help smiling when you see one tumble down the stairs.

  56. 24moreCups says:

    At least we didn’t get shut out, about time Bourque finds the back of the net.

  57. punkster says:

    There it is. The beginning of the playoff drive.

    ***Subbang Baby!!!***

  58. The Jackal says:

    alwayssunny – a dirty player? Please… Try harder, troll

  59. habsfaninboston says:

    Hey, a shortie! Finally!

  60. habsfaninkw says:

    Ya know, I was one of those people who thought PK was just in the middle of a sophomore jinx, or unlucky, or … pick your excuse. It’s now apparent, he’s playing like a tool. And despite his age, he oughta know better.

  61. habsfan0 says:

    Wow! I smell the playoffs!

  62. Les Canayens says:

    Ovechkin’s slump coincides with his new hair cut.

    Scouting is subjective.

  63. Storm Man says:

    Slap me silly!!!!!!!!!

  64. habsfan1144 says:

    Wow we scored!!!!!!!

  65. Habsbill24 says:

    Remember the good old days of Breezeby and Big George and his code? We didn’t realize how good those Habs were as compared to this bunch.

  66. Clay says:

    If you think nobody cares if you’re alive, try missing a couple of payments.

    C’mon guys, let’s support our team! They need fans like us…..

    Go Habs Go! (haha!!!)

  68. Danno says:

    I’d say there is a maximum of ten players you would try to keep on this team.

    The rest can go to hell.

  69. alwayssunny says:

    That was a cheap call but that’s what happens when you are a dirty player.

  70. Old Bald Bird says:

    Who will score our next goal and when?

    I think Nobody will score tonight.

  71. Nova Scotia Voyageurs says:

    Very Weak……….

  72. Storm Man says:

    4-0… I hope so

  73. MacHabFan says:

    RC is a genius at neutralizing young talent … another embarrassing game … the lines are a mystery … we are losing puck battles and just chasing the puck.

    Down 3-0 … no fault of Price … without him it would be 10-0.

    This is tough to watch.

  74. Bill says:

    This is a definite shutout, and I am not even trying to jinx anything.

    Poor Habs can’t do anything.

    Full Breezer 4 Life

  75. Habsbill24 says:

    Anybody seen AK? Does he still play hockey?
