Liveblog: Two in a row!


First consecutive wins since Dec. 10-13.
Start the parade.

Monster game by Andrei Kostitsyn.

Alexei Emelin, too.

Everyone, really


  1. C-Sword says:

    Damn, it’s risky to play the smurfs line late in the 3rd period

  2. Marc10 says:

    I’ll say it again… TB has been incredibly lucky. So many bounces.

  3. durocher says:

    6 hits by Emelin so far tonight to lead both teams. He’s doing with a cage on too.

  4. scavanau says:

    Quick offside whistle?

  5. Mondou6 says:

    Eller has to shoot there, but why take a slap shot from 20 feet out? WTF? Pick a spot.

  6. Marc10 says:

    Our simply can’t contain even an average line from the back of our net to the slot. Time and time again you see the little chip in front paying dividends…

    That said, we’re winning this one. Eller is going to bury them when they pull their goalie.

  7. durocher says:

    Cammy-Pleks-Gio are our third line as it stands. Blunden seems more useful.

  8. Lawrencetown Liquor Pigs says:

    Can we call Eller-Kostitsyn-Moen “Voltron”? They really become a force when they play together.
    They lost me 2 quarts of rum, better make it up next year with a cup!

  9. Muckbringer says:

    next goal cole

    • scavanau says:

      He deserves it

    • Lawrencetown Liquor Pigs says:

      From a strictly fantasy hockey perspective, I’d appreciate if it were AK46.

      They lost me 2 quarts of rum, better make it up next year with a cup!

      • Muckbringer says:

        thought ak too. just throwing it out there

        • Lawrencetown Liquor Pigs says:

          You called it fella. I have Cole in a different league, but I needed the Kostits goal more.

          They lost me 2 quarts of rum, better make it up next year with a cup!

          • Muckbringer says:

            skillzy wouldev been the best. great win!!!
            Subotai: No. It would only lead me back here another day. In even worse company.
            Conan: For us, there is no spring. Just the wind that smells fresh before the storm.

          • Muckbringer says:

            sounds like gambling, never bet for or against habs

  10. Habzfan says:

    TB is getting away with murder!! Pleks/Cammy should be on the fourth line!!!! They’re Brutal in the defensive zone.

  11. habs-fan-84 says:

    Smurf line is useless, can’t say I’m surprised.

  12. punkster says:

    Blunden on the attack!

    Trade him for Getzlaf…straight up. DO IT PG!!!

    ***Subbang Baby!!!***

  13. habsfaninboston says:

    No penalty? WTF.

  14. The HonestFan says:

    1991 was the last time lions won a play off game

  15. Lawrencetown Liquor Pigs says:

    How the Jesus does Joffrey Lupul have 19 goals? Contract year?

    They lost me 2 quarts of rum, better make it up next year with a cup!

  16. habs-fan-84 says:

    great to see this team forechecking! Thank god JM is gone.

  17. I don’t miss Jacques Martin…at all.

  18. Lawrencetown Liquor Pigs says:

    Keep Pleks on the 4th line! Isn’t that pressure what we’ve been screaming for! (please insert sarcasm in the voice in your head when you read this)

    They lost me 2 quarts of rum, better make it up next year with a cup!

  19. The HonestFan says:

    14-7 Lions

    • Mondou6 says:

      If the Habs were an NFL team, who would we be?

      As much as I hate Dallas, I’d say the Cowboys…A former elite marquee team that hasn’t been relevant to a title in a long time.

  20. Mondou6 says:

    Even the Tampa announcer said there has been “a lack of whistles” after the last flurry of blatant TB penalties that weren’t called.

  21. Mondou6 says:

    Haha, love the crowd going off on the reffing…

    I guess nothing is a penalty anymore tonight.

  22. krob1000 says:


  23. Psycho29 says:

    RDS is 2 minutes behind CBC….
    (No jokes please)

  24. habsfaninboston says:

    Love to see Emelin handle Malone.

  25. SlovakHab says:

    MAB is a joke, how on earth is he plus-8?

  26. Lawrencetown Liquor Pigs says:

    Is it just me or does Ryan Malone really not like being hit?
    They lost me 2 quarts of rum, better make it up next year with a cup!

  27. Marc10 says:

    TB is so lucky. They should be down 5 by now.

  28. Propwash says:

    Gio can motor.

    Don’t let the wultures getcha.

  29. showey47 says:

    sweet dangle by AK

  30. Lawrencetown Liquor Pigs says:

    Just me, or does it seem Andrei Kostitsyn might really like playing for RC?

    They lost me 2 quarts of rum, better make it up next year with a cup!

  31. thirdstone says:

    Kostitsyn is just nuts these days

  32. habsfaninboston says:

    Slick moves by AK.

  33. Muckbringer says:

    wings come back to tie to 3-3!!

  34. Danno says:

    We went into the third period with a one-goal lead against the Jets and went on a rampage. Do it again Habs.


    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  35. gumper says:

    Is Blunden ever likely to drop ’em, or is he just another one of our pacifist type tough guys?

  36. It’s so painful to see Gomez’s stats man.. 0 G.. 4 A.. granted he only played 16 games but cmon..

    Craig Anderson has more points. Cam Ward has more goals. Hal Gill has twice the points as Gomez…


  37. HabFanSince72 says:

    “Canadiens 12-1-3 when leading after two”


  38. Danno says:

    Let’s just be thankful the war room in Toronto didn’t call and add time to the clock.


    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  39. tote-road says:

    Was going to ask if Gomez will return to finish of the season strong and score more goals than Eller did last game. Have lowered my expectations. Who will score more goals this season, Gomez or Blunden?

  40. sane hockey fan says:

    2P 00:34 Twice they’ve found Gorges as the trailer. And twice he’s shot right at Biron’s crest

    …man you can tell Boone has never played hockey. Garon is at LEAST 5 feet outside of the crease if not more…those shots would have to been perfect to even have a chance of getting by a goalie that far out of his net. Since Gorges isn’t known for his shooting prowess and slap shot is in itself not very accurate, there is really no reason to even point this out.

  41. sane hockey fan says:

    lets go boys close this one out!!

  42. English is not a Crime says:

    Remember when……
    “Corson’s Big Suspension: The NHL suspended Corson for 10 games during the 1991-92 season for leaving Montreal’s bench to start a fight with 4:10 remaining in the third period of the Canadiens’ Nov. 2, 1991, game vs. Buffalo. Corson had come onto the ice as a sixth skater after referee Don Koharski had called a delayed penalty against the Sabres’ Colinn Patterson. Corson, however, charged right at Buffalo’s Brad Miller, starting a fight that led to a game misconduct. The 10-game suspension was automatically assessed due to an NHL rule that punished players who came onto the ice with the intent of fighting. As a result, Corson did not return to Montreal’s lineup until the Habs’ Nov. 25, 1991, game vs. Boston.”

    • English is not a Crime says:

      Corson was actually on the ice legally after a line change and was suspended. Lucy steps onto the ice illegally and his is over-ruled. Ah yes the league always cheats to help the Habs doesn’t it Bruin fans?

  43. t1tan5 says:

    Hey Boone, the TB goaltender is Mathieu Garon, not the Rangers back-up.

  44. slapshot777 says:

    Hell no!

  45. Marc10 says:

    Dodged the late period collapse on that one.

    The guys need to play like their pissed off and take this one. Don’t wait for Stamkos and co to figure out the game’s started…

  46. kempie says:

    Habs looked like clearly the better team in that 20.

  47. Mondou6 says:

    Does a goal after the peroid still count if it is a “continuation”?

  48. durocher says:

    Question for the commentariat: would you trade Pleks and Cammy for Jeff Carter and RJ Umberger?

    1. Hell Yes
    2. Yes
    3. Maybe
    4. No
    5. Hell No

  49. Danno says:

    Beware the late one.

    The extra-late one, not so much…


    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  50. gumper says:

    Man, what is it with this team and the beginnings and ends of periods?

  51. English is not a Crime says:

    Anyone remember when Corson got into a fight as the lines were changing and even though he was still on the ice and never left the ice, he was given a ten game suspension for it because the guy replacing him was on the ice when Corson dropped the gloves? Funny how the NHL’s rules keep changing as it suits the Bruins at any point in time.

  52. The HonestFan says:

    Shoot out in new Orleans

  53. JIMVINNY says:

    Frack that was close.

  54. durocher says:

    Cole and Max Power have been great tonight. Nice stop-up move by Cole

  55. scavanau says:

    Nice seeing them skate for an entire period

  56. Mavid says:

    yes Bob…that is the goalie…at least he knows who were playing against tonight..well so far…
    Oh and I love Cole..I was thrilled when they signed him..and he has not disappointed me not even for one second..

  57. JIMVINNY says:

    Gill goes down with Moore’s stick between his legs, and there’s no penalty. How is that possible?

  58. danhabsfan says:

    Hey Cole… how is a save made in front of the goalie

  59. Marc10 says:

    We need another 4th line push.

    Come on… Put the Blundenator in there.

    You know Eller will score tonight. It’s coming…

  60. solomio says:

    No need to state the obvious but…we need the next one ’cause Tampa will most certainly score another goal in this game.

    “I figure PG has one or 2 moves left to bring the Habs that extra step closer to perhaps being the best in the league.” – Einstein

  61. nickster13 says:

    Hey i didnt know Randy Ladouceur was an anglo…

  62. Kimberly2u says:

    Love the smile on Eller’s face..he’s really coming in to his own now that he can skate more

  63. gumper says:

    Is it just me, or is Campoli really sucking out there tonight?

  64. JIMVINNY says:

    AK has drilled a couple of guys today.

  65. twilighthours says:

    The plex line is getting shifts against tampa’s 4th line. Lack of confidence in the plex line or just trying to get them going?


  66. Mavid says:

    not to harp on my new TV…but holy shit..watching this game in 55 glorious inches of LCD/LED with brand new Bose suround sound speakers is well…almost as good as…well you guys figure that out…

  67. nickster13 says:

    lol @ Emelin throwing St-Louis around like a rag doll almost every shift

  68. twilighthours says:

    Man I love emelin


  69. Mavid says:

    hahaha the fans knew that was not off side…

  70. nickster13 says:

    Cammy really is too small and weak to compete out there, even Gionta seems much stronger and more competitive by comparison. If theres a guy i would trade, and not upset the balance of the team, it would be cammy to pick up someone young or player with high long term potential, or a late 1st rounder. Pax or Eller can be the “playoff scorers”. Its just too frustrating watching Cammy play.

  71. HabFanSince72 says:

    Mathieu Garon usually plays like an all-star against us. Not tonight though.

  72. JIMVINNY says:

    Boone, that was a terrible offside call. That puck was never even partially out, much less all the way.

  73. Danno says:

    If we had yellow and black uniforms that goal would have been good.


    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  74. JIMVINNY says:

    you know if it had been Tampa that scores that goal, it would have stood.
