Liveblog: Finally, a W!


If you were outside Scotiabank Place at about 10 p.m., you saw a terrified money running through an Ottawa snowstorm.
It was the one that jumped off Randy Cunneyworth’s back.

    Alex Auld.

    Get yer rebounds! Bug juicy rebounds here! Get yer rebounds!

  2. gumper says:

    He’s big, he’s bald….and he’s been called!

  3. Mondou6 says:

    Oh good, the “Forbidden” message is back when trying to access this page.

    Glad to see the hamsters running the HIO server are getting a rest for the holidays.

  4. Rad says:

    He’s big, he’s bald,
    He’s useless Auld!

    Edit: oh wait, I can’t say that, he doesn’t play for us anymore.

  5. JIMVINNY says:

    Why does Cammy take faceoffs instead of Leblanc, when LL is a center?

  6. 24moreCups says:


    Here comes big bald Auld

  7. Clay says:

    If this is the Cunny system, I like it!

    LeBlanc le but!

  9. like a boss says:


  10. durocher says:

    LL!!! Get an apartment!

  11. habsfaninboston says:

    LL! Cammy returns the favor.

  12. SmartDog says:

    frack. Where can I watch the game online?

    Listen to the Smart Dog. He knows his poop!

  13. slapshot777 says:

    Pacs dropping the gloves show that the guys are not going to put up with this crap anymore. Now after saying that I don’t want Pacs dropping them every game. I much rather he be on the ice than in the box for five minutes.

  14. petefleet says:

    I like all the lines tonight. Cammy should have been on the 3rd line a month ago.

    32 14 46
    52 15 45
    13 51 71
    67 81 72

    76 26
    75 61
    74 22

    They all look ready to play. Packs dropping the gloves is over the top.

    Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    ***Habs Forever***

  15. HabFanSince72 says:

    We’re still getting outplayed and took no shots for the last 5 minutes.

  16. SlovakHab says:

    I am not that excited – our Fenwick isn’t the prettiest after the first period! 😀

    At least it’s another 3-assist night for Raphael “Gordie” Diaz.

  17. gumper says:

    Really nice to see goals from Pleks and Cammi. Hope it means the slumps are over. Too much to ask that Max and AKost also get their beaks wet?

  18. HabFab says:

    Why the heck is Diaz playing again??

  19. Mondou6 says:

    Holy crap, I’m watching the Ottawa feed and Guy Carbonneau is in a “Playground Poker” TV commercial.

    Is he that hard up for money? That’s embarrassing.

  20. Exit716 says:

    Solid period aided by some atrocious Jr. C calibre goaltending by Anderson.

  21. HardHabits says:

    These lines are working well. Habs are much more organized than they were in Winnipeg.

    They didn’t generate many chances at first but made them count. It’s much better to score 3 goals on 4 shots than get 1 on 20.

    Good for Randy Cunneyworth to get something out of this team. I hope this type of play continues for the next two periods and remaining games of this road trip.

  22. Bobcat Bob says:

    Bobcat Bob
    Nice period now keep working hard boys!!!! Big 4 pointer tonight.

  23. habsfaninboston says:

    Good shot to goal ratio that period.

  24. I’ve already seen RC say more in one period behind the bench than JM all year.

  25. JIMVINNY says:

    PK’s gotta be careful doing that. He could hurt Price pretty bad, hitting him with the net like that.

  26. habsfaninboston says:

    No penalty for taking down P.K.?

  27. Habs backchecking well. Ottawa just lazed back on the third goal.

  28. HabinBurlington says:

    Cammy LL together looks good early

  29. Habsolutely says:

    “Konopka goes after Gill. Why?”

    He wants to beat up a hab to spark his team.

  30. habs-fan-84 says:

    Loving the lines!
    Eller: one of my favs, did not mind to seeing him scratched, looks like it lit a fire under his ass.

    Don`t want to get too excited yet, but perhaps the boys just needed some time away from the rink (and each other).

    Post x-mas break, starting on a clean slate!

  31. Habsolutely says:

    Trade the bum!!

  32. NLhabsfan says:

    Oh well the goons are out for the zeros

  33. HabinBurlington says:

    Well it’s pretty obvious, Hickey and Stubbs dont go to games anymore. Ask for a raise Boone!

  34. ifitwasnt4kovalev says:

    here we go, konopka, nel, carkner………blunden, omen, time to play.

  35. HabFanSince72 says:

    Konopka! Half of H I/O is tumescent.

  36. HabsFanMTL says:

    wow Gill showing some Machoism with Konopka

  37. HardHabits says:

    I miss the jokes about the System™ and how the Habs would at this point sit back and try to protect the lead.

  38. like a boss says:


  39. Clay says:

    Wow – going to the net without the puck. Who knew you could score that way? 😉

  40. HabinBurlington says:

    In the blue paint where you need to be to score, atta boy Cammy, nice little delay by LL before shooting the puck. Awesome!

  41. ifitwasnt4kovalev says:

    happy hanukah cammy

  42. Hoegarden says:

    Pinch me !

  43. like a boss says:

    ……………………OMG cammy, welcome back

  44. 24moreCups says:

    Is this really happening? haha

  45. habsfaninboston says:

    Did Cammy really score? Holy shite!

  46. durocher says:

    Great play by LL to get that to the net.

    See ya Anderson

  47. Propwash says:


    Being negative has its advantages,
    you’re never disappointed.

  48. ifitwasnt4kovalev says:

    where are the sammy HATERSSSSSS ??????? show ya faceeeee

  49. HabsFanMTL says:

    didn’t they say Ryan White will be back by christmas??? where is he??

  50. twilighthours says:

    What is this strange feeling I’m experiencing?


  51. durocher says:

    I think Denis Potvin is in utter amazement and is clinically depressed now that the Habs are up.

  52. Habsolutely says:

    trade the bum!!!!

  53. Hali_Hab says:

    Holy crap a forcheck!!!

  54. 24moreCups says:

    Keep em’ coming boys!!

  55. habsfaninboston says:

    Pleks baby!

  56. like a boss says:


  57. HabsFanMTL says:

    not to mention Gill’s wicked shot from the point!!!

  58. JIMVINNY says:

    Hey! Look at that! Cammy actually carried the puck out of the zone. He looked as surprised as me that it worked.

  59. idle says:

    I know Cunnyworth is frustrated he hasn’t got his first win yet, but to deliberately send Pacioretty onto the ice to start a fight….

  60. ifitwasnt4kovalev says:

    ottawa fans = nap time

  61. JIMVINNY says:

    lol. That was kind of ridiculous. A little shove, and Patches starts a fight. Maybe he was trying to get everyone going.

  62. durocher says:

    IF we had a real 4th line, Max Power wouldn’t need to fight to give the boys a boost

  63. issie74 says:

    ok,so what was wrong with that.I guess Eller didn’t like the press box.


  64. idle says:

    Why do the Senators have a big zero on the front of their jersey

  65. badbalance says:

    Eller’s value just went up by a bit, maybe we just could use him as trade bait

  66. ifitwasnt4kovalev says:

    is that ellers family in the stands ?

  67. JIMVINNY says:

    Beauty, Lars. And nice D, Karlsson. James Norris is going to be turning over in his grave when you win his trophy.

  68. idle says:

    O.K now it’s Subban’s turn

  69. durocher says:

    Eller the sniper!
