Liveblog: Leafs win 3-1 – Carlyle is 2-0 against Canadiens


The Anaheim Ducks beat the Canadiens 4-1 in Randy Carlyle’s last game behind their bench this season.
In his first coaching Toronto, the Leafs won 3-1.

The visitors, who still have a shot at the postseason, were dominant after giving up an early goal to Erik Cole.

Mikhail Grabovski, who kills the Canadiens, scored the winner and an insurance goal.

    Didn’t Maclean say the team has no players from Quebec? Darche, Desharnais, Leblanc

  2. Ice Storm says:

    Umm Andrei… Gotta love spell check with Euro names lol

  3. Ice Storm says:

    Andrew… His first of many with Nashville

  4. HABS_TO_THE_BONE says:

    For those raggin on Henry, relax, he is one of the best D-Men on the Dogs! He has been in the + all 4 yrs there.

  5. manu07 says:

    Subban is from Ontario

  6. HabsFanMTL says:

    when is Emelin gonna throw his bone crushing checks tonight? i hope he hasn’t been Mentally Freaked out by Malone the other night that he’s gone soft………

  7. Rad says:

    Phaneuf should have gotten a penalty for that elbow.

  8. twilighthours says:

    Sorta half-listened to that rant but if cherry is mad at Burke then I’m definitely a fan of Burke now

  9. ponyboy says:

    Holy moly Cherry basically challenged Burke to a bout of truculence and called him out saying he tried to get him fired. Love it.

  10. Cherry calling out Burke to go one on one…
    …sometimes you gotta luv Grapes.

  11. daveho29 says:

    Say what you will about Don Cherry but as a Leafs fan he sure wears hit heart on his sleeve, much like us Habs fans.

  12. ifitwasnt4kovalev says:

    Why don’t the Leafs drink tea?
    Because the Canadiens have all the cups.

  13. HardHabits says:

    Some might call this is play-off hockey. But it is more like lottery pick hockey.

  14. jo_maka says:

    Cherry is gettin off like it’s going out of style !!!
    Open-mindedness is not a skull fracture

  15. D-man says:

    the laffs actually have a worse team than the Habs but somehow actually have more points in the standings.

  16. Propwash says:

    I’m not a huge fan of fights in hockey, but I hope Phaneuf gets his once Staub comes back after his fighting major……

    Don’t let the wultures getcha.

  17. ffenliv says:

    Christ almighty, Cherry is PISSED at Brian Burke.

  18. manu07 says:

    Cherry…always good for a laugh. Lol

  19. Pucknut says:

    Both Phaneuf & Komisarek should sign over half of their paycheques to Hamrlik & Markov respectively

  20. HabsFanMTL says:

    i’d like to see Moen Pleks Darche

  21. HabinBurlington says:

    Ahhhh so Maclean set up Cherry with the ontario question pregame, Maclean is a putz

    • ffenliv says:

      Um …. Maclean didn’t set anything up. Burke complained that one of the reasons the Leafs suck is that every team comes to town with a bunch of players who want to do well in front of friends and family, and Ron wanted to know why the Leafs didn’t bother signing any.

  22. FlyingFrenchie says:

    According to D—Ks on HNIC…Eller almost forced Phaneuf to throw an elbow… lol

  23. jedimyrmidon says:

    I don’t like how Bourque hardly ever seems to go straight to the net. Always loses the puck when to passed to from Eller (not convinced Eller is to blame here) and always tries to pass from the side.

  24. cmaddy says:

    White should beat the sh… Out of Phaneuf

  25. JayK-47 says:

    Taking exception is… CAMPOLI???

    Who ARE these GUYS?

  26. HabinBurlington says:

    Big tough Phaneuf, putz

  27. ifitwasnt4kovalev says:


  28. cmaddy says:

    Nice pass

  29. sackabooboo says:

    How about Pleks with LL and Wwhite.
    Why does something I have no control over have so much control over me….

  30. cmaddy says:

    Plec has done nothing for the longest time

  31. tote-road says:

    I suppose you can admire Phaneuf for some of his accomplishments (though I think he was a bit late to the party in this Silverstone business), but what is there about his game to like?

  32. win4ce says:

    Hard to tell who’s cheering and who’s booing with all the leaf fans. Atleast we can all boo Komisarek together

  33. HabsFanMTL says:

    i still say bring up Alex Henry, 6’6 240 , he is very physical on D and can drop the gloves and it doesn’t hurt to have a fourth fighter if u add Moen to the mix…….not to mention Alex henry won’t cost much damm what are we waiting for

    • tote-road says:

      …and he is well deserving of it. Why not reward a guy like that, with nothing on the line at this point?

    • kempie says:

      Unfortunately, he’s an awful hockey player. Just awful.

      • tote-road says:

        Exactly. He could slide seamless into this line up.

      • HabsFanMTL says:

        oh no he isn’t, he is one of thier best defenseman

      • HABS_TO_THE_BONE says:

        Henry is Captian. Henry has been in the + all four yrs in Hamilton! He is not as bad as people say in here.

        • kempie says:

          In Hamilton. That’s the prob. He has a lot of trouble at this level. I know he’s an animal own there and sometimes I wonder why he can’t make the step but whenever he’s come up, he’s been atrocious. Like kaberle bad without the puck movement. And doesn’t seem to play as big as he is. This all being said, now’s the time to let him have a cup of coffee. We sure need D.

    • neumann103 says:

      I said months ago when things looked bleak that if you got down to the last 20 games and were still stinking it up in 12th place you don’t tank but you do start playing St Denis, Henry, etc to see what they have got, in addition to considering the occasional Markov game with the instructions “don’t overdo it, the season is over”.

      Intentionally losing is shameful and something only the Isalanders and Oilers of the world could entertain. However admitting defeat and playing the kids for evaluation…

      “Et le but!”

    • powdered toastmann says:

      Methinks he injured.

  34. sackabooboo says:

    It’s been said already. But wow…Pleks with white and geffrion? Wow…what a waste od talent. He should be our #1 or #2 center….

    Why does something I have no control over have so much control over me….

    • ffenliv says:

      Well, He can’t center Cole-Desharnais-Patches .. there’s no breaking up that line. The rest of the team is barely worth calling a #2 line. After that top line, you’re just centering various crap-tastic lines.

  35. manu07 says:

    Maybe Plec should play the wing with LL and Eller center. With a try. Season is pretty much over.

  36. Propwash says:

    RDS’s hi-def feed is much better than CBC’s for some reason on videotron….

    Don’t let the wultures getcha.

  37. manu07 says:

    I would like to see Plec with LL. or someone with a bit of talent tonight. My goodness. Poor guy!

  38. ths says:

    Like this new touch line Staubitz fits the bill

    Ooh Aah Habs on the war path

  39. manu07 says:

    Nice to see a hab make a check and instantly drop the gloves. Not run his mouth straight to the bench.

  40. slapshot777 says:

    Brown won’t be running any Habs tonight.

  41. ffenliv says:

    I was ready to score that a draw up until Brown more or less turtled while standing up.

    I’m not blaming him for being a wimp or anything. He’s obviously a pretty tough guy, but knew when he was about to get filled in, and so gets a loss.

  42. cmaddy says:

    He did nothing

  43. MICP says:

    DD is as slippery as a new born baby.

  44. punkster says:

    Blitzkrieg baby!

    ***Subbang Baby!!!***

  45. HabFanSince72 says:

    What did Plex do to deserve White and Geoffrion?

    Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.

  46. cmaddy says:

    Carlisle deserves nothing!

  47. db says:

    I really want to see our slowest player beat Phaneuf to the outside tonight.

  48. ffenliv says:

    Good lord that line is great. If management could put together a decent 2nd line, a competent 3rd line, and a grinder of a fourth, the Habs could easily finish mid-table.

    Of course, as an arm-chair GM, I don’t know how any of that should be done.

  49. punkster says:

    DD is so heads up at all times.

    ***Subbang Baby!!!***

  50. HabFanSince72 says:

    You have to feel a bit sorry for the Monster.

    Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.

  51. alfieturcotte says:

    Does anyone have a live stream feed to tonight’s game. I am in NYC.

  52. Man, I want the Habs to tank..

    but.. it’s so tempting to cheer for them too. AAAHHH WOOO COOLEE

  53. manu07 says:

    OH and there it is…going to get my lottery ticket after that prediction!

  54. cmaddy says:

    What’s up with sloppy goalie?

  55. HabinBurlington says:


  56. L Elle says:

    Don’t let the Monster loose!!!!

  57. manu07 says:

    First good shot on the “monster” goes in.

  58. icemachine says:

    I like the new mask, but these charity things always seem to cost Carey more than anyone else

    Its time to switch to whiskey, we’ve been drinkin’ beer all night

  59. HabinBurlington says:

    Two teams that don’t want to make the first mistake.

  60. manu07 says:

    LL in my opinion should just ditch Hamilton. He’s fast. He hits. Looks much better then enqvist and AP on most nights. Now with injuries hopefully he stays up to finish of this embarrassing season.

  61. Mondou6 says:

    I like the new mask, looks cool.

  62. H.Upmann says:

    Wow. Refreshing to see size and forechecking!

  63. manu07 says:

    I don’t mind the mask. It has a rustic look. Lol

  64. NLhabsfan says:

    It’s a win win situation here tonight we win GREAT.We loose we get a better draft pick:)

  65. ffenliv says:

    I’m a little embarrassed that the Bell Centre crowd let that ‘Go Leafs Go’ run on for so long without drowning them out.

    Show some pride!

  66. HABS_TO_THE_BONE says:

    ” Since shutting out the Leafs Feb. 11, Carey Price has allowed three or more in seven of eight starts”

    Mr.Boone yoiu failed to mention that his D were crap in those games!

  67. Mondou6 says:

    Limbaugh actually reminds me of Cherry, and vice versa. Both get paid to say crazy inflammatory things. If they want to keep getting a paycheck, they need to keep the nutty vitriol spewing daily.

    They are also both approaching dinosaur status, and I have to wonder if they even believe half of the crap that comes out of their own mouths at this point.

    They’re clownish, just look at Cherry’s funny suit gimmick, and look at Rush chomping on his big cigar.

  68. manu07 says:

    I love seeing PK prior to coming out on the ice. Looks like and NFL linebacker. Pacing, completely pumped, while all the other Habs just stand around and watch. Hope next year every Hab is that enthusiastic!

  69. HabinBurlington says:

    Now i know what it feels like to be a fan of an Army vs. Navy football game in the states.

  70. mb says:

    Fearless prediction: Randy C.’s team wins tonight.

  71. duffy says:

    Tonights chant for Leaf Fans, FIRE BURKE,FIRE BURKE ,FIRE BURKE.

  72. scavanau says:

    Help a brother out… I’m stuck at work and my internet broadcast channels are bookmarked on my home laptop.

    Where can I view the game online?

  73. L Elle says:

    I’ve bitten the bullet and am watching CBC. The best part so far was MaxP’s bad hair day.
