Liveblog: Bruins are out!

Caps celebrate
Tim Thomas blows off Barack Obama.
Washington eliminates the Bruins.

How’s this for an over-the-top radio call?

OK, the Canadiens missed the playoffs.

But here’s some consolation: Boston is dead after the first round.
In overtime of Game 7, Joel Ward buried a backhand and the Capitals move on to the second round.

P.K. Subban tweets: Wardo! With the snizzle, post game inte, and the fresh cut too!An NHL first: Seven games decided by one goal.

And the last time a rookie goaltender knocked out the defending Stanley Cup champions from Boston?

Ken Dryden.

And Braden Holtby may end up visiting the White House.

Danny Kristo has turned down an offer to turn pro and will play his senior season at the University of North Dakota.

Kristo, the Canadiens’ second round draft choice in 2008, can become an unrestricted free agent of the Canadiens don’t sign him by next summer.

The Canadiens had hoped Kristo would join top junior prospects Jared Tinordi, Brendan Gallagher, Nathan Beaulieu and Michaël Bournival in boosting the Hamilton Bulldogs next season.

    I think might explain the mood in HabsNation

    Gotta love that Banjo Bruin idiot, he’s like that bum on the street with Tourette’s… here’s a loonie, beeyatch, go buy a clue.

    Calling it like it is:
    Jack Edwards is a clam.
    The Bruins and their fans are gutless weasel pukes.

  4. Adidess says:

    Shoot, no beer in the fridge right now. I did not expect this sudden urge to celebrate before bed time!

    A big Centreman, please. Thank you!

  5. naweed235 says:

    I knew this PooPool was good for something. Like all the other players that leave Mtl and finally reach their potential… I think I will replay the face of those pukes and their fans when that goal was scored over and over whenever I feel down… Heck, might even make a screesaver out of it!

  6. HabinBurlington says:

    Interesting how quick CBC cut away from the post game coverage, somehow methinks if Boston wins we get to see Horatio Hornblower in his mixed licorice coat speak.

  7. Marc10 says:

    What a great day!

  8. habaholic68NJ says:

    Pouliot and Ward. Mt favorite two players of this years playoff. Thank you.

  9. JayK-47 says:

    Ding Dong! The B’s are dead! The B’s are DEAD! The Boston B’s are dead!!!

  10. slapshot777 says:

    In the end the refs as hard as they tried to give it to the Bruins was helpless as they watched a clean goal being scored on the their Bettman team.

  11. habstrinifan says:

    I SAID IT! KARMA is back for the HABS. Boston out is a sure sign of that.

  12. Alex_425 says:

    OH. FRIGGIN’. YEAH. Bruins get eliminated on my birthday!

    What a way to CAP off the day!

  13. doug19 says:

    HAhaha Beaners OUT!

  14. slapshot777 says:

    Banjo sounds like a hack from the woods who lives with the bears anyway. Sleep tight banjodon’t let the other bears bite. YAHOO!!!!!!!!

  15. HabInToronto says:


  16. HabinBurlington says:

    Wow Banjo is on a roll, perhaps someone can push that rock back in its cave. Mods?

    • smiler2729 says:

      I don’t see him, must ahve been moderated back into oblivion

  17. mrhabby says:

    Have nice summer popo.

  18. Bob_Sacamano says:

    I´ll always love you Joel!

  19. Timo says:

    My reverse jinx always works sometime. Eat sh!t bruins! Eat lots and lots of it.
    Now I can truly stop caring about this year’s playoffs.

  20. joeybarrie says:

    Well done agent Pouliot. Mission accomplished.

  21. slapshot777 says:

    All summer the excuses will be how Bergeron was hurt and how much they miss Horton.

    All I got to say about that is F..k them.

    The Habs have had a full season of injuries. Nobody felt sorry for us. I don’t feel one bit sorry for those bastards.

  22. L Elle says:

    So, how about Julien for our next coach? 😉

  23. habs001 says:

    if that was habs scoring the refs would have ruled goalie interference..but bruins deserve to lose after major favourtism last year..

  24. Hoegarden says:

    What a way to end the day……! PERFECT !!!

  25. Cal says:

    Hey, hey,

    Bruck the Fuins!

  26. Rossy says:

    Did you all hear the big roar that went up at 10:23 ET? It was the sound of 21,273 Habs’ fans plus Habs’ fans from coast to coast giving Ference the finger.

    The other sound you might not have heard over the tumult was the sigh of relief coming from Tim Thomas who won’t have to answer reporters’ annoying questions about why he turned down the President’s invitation to the White House.

    Couldn’t have happened to a nicer bunch of hockey players.

  27. naweed235 says:

    Merci, Bonsoir!!!

  28. HFX-HabFan says:

    Thanks Benny

  29. RGM says:

    Thank you to the Capitals for defeating the most evil force in the NHL. Seriously, this is the equivalent of blowing up the Death Star.

    GO HABS GO! 2011-12 is probably not our year!

  32. kempie says:

    Ya, but you know if Bergeron wasn’t injured…..

    You’ll get em next year tiger. Buck up Bucky.

    Take the rest of the year off boys.

  33. The Jackal says:

    Im so happy! Je suis tres content!

  34. EricInStL says:

    Pouliot’s career as a Bruin is officially over.

    The goalie interference was not considered since Washington got an crap call against them in the 3rd

  35. mrhabby says:

    Makes my night, makes my week.

  36. Habsolutely says:

    Ok, for the first time since the habs were eliminated from the playoffs, I’m happy.

  37. mrhabby says:

    Hey cherry what’s up.

  47. Adidess says:

    A big Centreman, please. Thank you!

  48. C-Sword says:

    The Caps doing what the Habs couldn’t do last year, beating the Bruins in freaking overtime.

  49. HabinBurlington says:

    Have to admit I do kind of feel sorry for absolutely nobody on the Bruins roster or associated with that franchise in way shape or form.

  50. slapshot777 says:

    YEAH BABY!!!!!

    I don’t care who wins the cup as long as those Bruin bastards don’t win it. Looks f..king good on them.

    Thanks Washington.

  51. Adidess says:

    Crowd is stunned. Like they were leading by 6 goals and didn’t know losing was an option.

    Nice shot.

    But Jaro Halak would have stopped it.

  54. gmd says:

    Goodbye Pornstache Thomas!

  55. twilighthours says:

    Was that pou pou pouliot with the turnover? I do believe so.

  56. Lafrich says:

    Pouliot blew it. He couldn’t get the puck in deep.

  57. Boomer says:


  58. smiler2729 says:

    I think I woke up my whole house! WOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
