Liveblog: Plus ça change … Devils 5 – Canadiens 3


3-3 going into the third period.

Crowd totally deflated and bummed out.
Happened against the Flyers.
Happened against the Devils.
Déja poo at the Bell Centre.



  1. immortalhab says:

    Gill has to put out now– with JM went the carte Blanche.

  2. NLhabsfan says:

    Surprised the refs didn’t call one on Cole

  3. durocher says:

    Take Cammy off the first wave!

    • showey47 says:

      the only way cammy is going to get out of his funk is by playing with the best players and the coach showing enough confidence in him to put him out there.

  4. Strummer says:

    Now the real test- Can we hold a friggin’ lead?


  5. nickster13 says:

    I love the goals! Only sad part is that its the 3rd and 4th lines again!

  6. Gormdog says:

    Without JM around stifling his offense, Gill is able to show his true upside.


  7. HabFanSince72 says:

    I used to joke that the commentariat thought Eller was both Sedins combined but for Martin.

    Maybe you were right.

  8. JIMVINNY says:

    Pacioretty gets levelled on a nearly identical play to the two which Cole was penalized for, and nothing happens. What a shock.

  9. The Dude says:

    Cunneyworth been watching Brad Pitt movies lately?

  10. Strummer says:

    Strange names on the scoresheet- Eller, Campoli, Subban

    New eara?


  11. Psycho29 says:

    2 assists for Hal Gill???
    That defensive system isn’t holding him back anymore!!!! 🙂

  12. LimestoneHab says:

    Was that a smile on Ellers face?
    Probably a lot of smiling tonight on that bench!

  13. SLYDER says:

    Well one thing is for sure – Cunneyworth is showing us what everyone except JM already knew

    The kids can play – so let them


  14. Da Hema says:

    At least with Martin gone Eller will not be benched for having the audacity to actually score a goal.

  15. C-Sword says:

    YES, my favorite Hab scored!

  16. Chorske says:

    Eller, finding his inner finisher.

  17. Aybara says:

    Oleing when they’re tied… This must be blowing your mind eh Boone. I guess they were sure of the win at 2-2…….

  18. Propwash says:

    Lookit this offensive powerhouse team!

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

  19. Mattee. says:

    OMG. We’re an exciting hockey team again. How? What? Who?

  20. Da Hema says:

    Hey!! Big Hal!!! Two assists!!!!

  21. showey47 says:

    way to go eller,yes.

  22. durocher says:

    Eller from LL!!!!!

  23. Habsolutely says:

    yes!!! Eller!!!

  24. SmartDog says:

    I don’t know about this Cunneyworth guy.

    A few minutes ago it looked like he was TALKING to Patches.
    Can a coach DO THAT???

    Listen to the Smart Dog. He knows his poop!

  25. Habbu says:

    A difference noted….less hesitation in their passing and shot taking tonight

  26. Strummer says:

    Campoli lookin’ like Wiz on that shot!


  27. durocher says:

    Blunden went to the net, like he’s supposed to do.

  28. Da Hema says:

    Hey! Big Hal should get an assist on that!!

  29. sCOTT1243 says:

    Explain to me why they don’t knock the NJ on his ass infront. Gill let Parise stand in front of price…Move him, Gill you re a little bigger than him. Geez, tired of this sofnest.

    Nice goal! haha

  30. durocher says:

    Pretty shot, nice one Camp!

  31. Da Hema says:

    Don’t tell me Lee’s crew isn’t doing some payback against Cole for the last game when Lee waived off that goal and Cole raised his gloves in disgust. NHL refs are so unprofessional.

  32. JIMVINNY says:

    Screw these refs. That is too many BS calls.

  33. Habbu says:

    Wish the Habs could make play like that

  34. Sharks9 says:

    Come on Cole, you’re killing us

    25 before 14

  35. Thank you, referees. Thank you for calling a shit penalty on Cole and then getting in Gorges way so he couldn’t clear the puck on the PK. Fantastic work all around, idiots.

  36. durocher says:

    That was pretty. Darche has to collapse down to prevent that pass. Why he is on this team, I do not know.

  37. NLhabsfan says:

    BS CALL on Cole and we pay.

  38. sCOTT1243 says:

    Give Cole a ton a credit for that goal…standing in front, screening and taking a beating. Can’t remember last time a hab did that.

    Credit to Cammy, he saw the opening…he seems to have a little more pop in his step tonight.

    BS call on cole…8/10 dive for Parise. Are these refs serious with a call like that.

  39. HabsFanMTL says:

    its not a bullshit call its interference the guy didn’t have the puck at all, cole is being an A-Hole tonight

  40. JIMVINNY says:

    BS call. Completely incidental. Why do we never get those soft calls.

  41. Mattee. says:

    Hahaha.. Eric Cole getting all his penalties for the season out of the way.

  42. SLYDER says:

    WOW – embarassing call

  43. showey47 says:

    now that is a bullshit call

  44. immortalhab says:

    I’m reveling in the fact that the first person to score after the dismissal of Jigantic Meathead is PK, the bronco that he tried to pen up. This couldn’t be more perfect.

  45. TOEmastro says:

    The secret sauce is in the wind-up

    Olé, olé, olé oleé

  46. NLhabsfan says:

    Finally one get through!!!

  47. SLYDER says:

    well covered my ass – cammy had that shortside corner yawning at him and he put it in the god damned mesh, he’s useless

  48. Mattee. says:

    CAMMI. Please, please… please hit the net man.

  49. habstrinifan says:

    This is one weird season for the HABS. I wont be surprised if Jessica the reporter becomes an assistant coach. Would be neat!

  50. Nine1one says:

    Off Topic but I’m really happy:

    I got accepted to the University of Michigan 😀

  51. RiverviewCanadien says:

    Well that period sucked.

  52. habs001 says:

    i hope eller gets better in point production but he is no sundin yet as some posters compared him to…sundin had over 100 goals by the time he was ellers age in the nhl..

  53. kempie says:

    Cherry’s point was “look at the ties on these young guys or what?”
    Is that what I heard?

  54. Gerry H says:

    That didn’t look good, but I think Cole has an excellent case to make. Larson’s head moved into Cole’s path and the latter was naturally shifting his centre of gravity to round the net.

  55. habstrinifan says:

    Boone Louis LeBlanc will score the first RC goal. And then Eller will pot two.

  56. Mattee. says:

    Absolutely nobody knows how many games Cole will get. I’m starting to think Shanahan puts the numbers 0,1,3, and 5 in a hat draws at random (unless it’s the habs, in which case, he takes the 0 out.)

  57. Propwash says:

    I’m convinced Cole will have the book thrown at him.

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

  58. habstrinifan says:

    Who is the PK coach.. why dont we hire him for the whole game not just PK’S?

  59. The Dude says:

    Higgins with his 9th….

  60. Strummer says:

    Anyone see Louis Jean’s report on Hockey Central on Sportsnet tonite?

    His sources told him there was dissention in the room under JM because of the way the veterns didn’t suffer i.e lose ice time or power play time when they made mistakes or under-performed- unlike the younger and less experienced players did.

    This is why he was gassed.


  61. habstrinifan says:

    Is KARMA screwing with the HABS this season or what. Here we try to change things up and we may lose Cole for some games.

    OH WELL I think Gomez is itching to prove that HE is priceless.

  62. durocher says:

    Cherry wishes Randy C good luck. We’re doomed.

  63. Rad says:

    No suspension to Cole. It was a hockey play, not against the boards, Cole did not leave his feet, and the player was not seriously injured or concussed.

  64. Da Hema says:

    I wonder if Don Cherry will discuss the Martin firing. Cherry is, after all, an expert on getting fired.

  65. longtimehabsfan says:

    I don’t see anything different with this team. They still can’t move the puck and create chances. I’m sick and tired of losing to mediocre teams,

    “It’s a moo point. Like a cow’s opinion, it doesn’t matter. It’s moo.”

  66. slapshot777 says:

    Here we are talking about a brush by. The penalty was high sticking. Why the f&ck is Chris Lee here again tonight. He really and the League really want to stick it to the Habs.

  67. rogieshan says:

    Two phantom penalties out of three, and Chris Lee hasn’t even warmed up yet.

    At least Cunneyworth is trying to roll four lines.

    Cammalleri officially on the clock.

  68. RGM says:

    Over/under on Cole suspension? I predict 2 games.

    GO HABS GO! 2011-12 is our year!

  69. Habsolutely says:

    if a bruin does that hit no suspension. a hab does it and it’ll be a 3 gamer
