3-3 going into the third period.
Visitors score early.
Crowd totally deflated and bummed out.
Happened against the Flyers.
Happened against the Devils.
Déja poo at the Bell Centre.
…Larry Robinson, D coach of the New Jersey Devils …Randy Lavasseuer, the D Coach of Our Montreal Canadiens
…kinda sayz it all for Our walk in da wilderness dese past 20 odd seasons ….has it not ?
Habitant means PASSIONATE HOCKEY
…Larry Robinson, also the Cup winning coach of the Devils in 2000 and Cup winning assistant coach in 2003.
New coach, same pathetic result. 3rd period completely devoid of heart, energy, and compete level.
GO HABS GO! 2011-12 is our year!
Can’t win when your coach gets fired.
It was a back-to-back game for NJ.
Fíng pathetic Habs. F’ing pathetic.
Sigh………go Wild go!
(c) Benoit Brunet
we saw some good things tonight, the team can grow on that.
Time for changes
You must have been the guy on the Titanic signing “The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow”.
God bless you, I can’t even imagine being that much of a sunshine optimist. I don’t know what to say.
I don’t know whether to praise you for your sunny optimism, or to condemn you for willful ignorance.
That was fugly.
BS reffing, and zero finish. Now RC knows what he has to look forward to as coach of the Habs.
Relax..Habs will pulverize the Bruins Monday..I think.
At least Molson’s is keeping up its fine tradition of turning the Montreal Canadiens into shite.
Am I the only one who thinks Price has to be better as well?
Newfoundland’s biggest Habs fan. Hands down.
No, not the only one.
“Talent is a gift from God, but you only succeed with hard work. Yvan was proof of that.” – Jean Beliveau.
Yes I agree I do not think Price was good to-nite same as the whole team. They love the penalty box. Price has not made the spectacular saves like he used to. Our players stink & should be ashamed of themselves…………Who in their right mind would ever want to play here…………….I am glad that I do not have to pay big bucks to watch this game at the Bell Center it is painfull enough to watch it on TV to which I turned it off ,just garbage 990 says they will get to the players in a moment, they will have the same old excuses…….to which we tried of hearing.Going on my comp more interesting that what I saw to-nite GOOD NITE
If you saw the first episode of 24/7 on HBO Tortorella made a comment when he sat Lundquist in favour of Biron that the recent Stanley Cup winning goalies average 60-65 games per year.
Price playing 72 will burn him out.
We need a competant back up and give Price some nights off
How would we even know if we have a competent one? He never gets a chance to play.
Nope he had a good couple of weeks in November but since then too many 3 and 4 goal games…….not good enough for this team.
The Scott Gomez line………..where wingers go to die.
I guess he has no margin for error, This team is a Turnover machine, yea he could have been a bit better, but he’s been good all year, team around hin sucks
“It’s not an obsession, It’s a way of life..”
Not a good game for Carey tonight. And just ok vs the Flyers. Unfortunately for the Habs to win, he has to be great.
Cammy, Pleks pack your bags
I guess this loss is easier to take because Cunnyworth does not write in a notebook
Pleks and Cammy couldn’t connect at the end — perfect microcosm of their underwhelming performances
Price picks the worst time to be below average. Bring back JM.
“Hate the Ole song like a sickness”
Most NHL teams always make it difficult to enter their zone by either bringing opposite attacking forwards near the board and pin them, or choke the middle. For some reason the Habs, over the last couple of seasons, don’t seem to have this concept.
Liquidate this team. Everyone but Price, Max Power, Cole, DD and LL should be available.
Not sure about LL, but agreed.
“Is the little dog going to yap, or is he going to bite?”
Can we all admit that this team is not that good and they need a full rebuild like Pitt., Wash., Jets, Panthers, Oilers…….suck for a few years and get some superstars in the draft?
1st round superstars cannot blossom in markets like Montreal or Toronto.
Most embarrassing display of crap i’ve ever watched, down by 2 goals and no one seems to care.
The team scores 3 in the 2nd and Price has a bad game. Fack.
Thomas shuts out the Flyers, seriously Tim Thomas is frickin’ lights out. And I hate the Bruins and Thomas for what he said about PK.
But man, I wish Carey was half as good this year.
Four shots from inside the crease. that’s the kind of luck RC gets to start his NHL HC job.
Moderator deleted a comment I made about Cammalleri. I didn’t realize writing I would smack Cammalleri’s arrogance off his face if I were his teammate is worthy of censoring. Good job mod!
I’m watching the Devils feed of the game, their announcers are doing a great job of commenting on our franchise.
They seem surprised by how bad our roster is. They said Gauthier is out of moves, that our roster just can’t compete against top teams. They said the Habs are trying, and give effort, but the talent is not there.
They pointed out a lot of our roster moves seem born of desperation, like Kaberle. And they mentioned how many large bad contracts we have that are killing us.
So with Perry Pearn and JM gone – why does the PP stil suck and why dont they play in the third period?
Another late Saturday night, alone in the basement with the whiskey dreaming about what might have been
Are you referring to JM?
…o well, it’s only RC’s first game …right ?
I don’t know what’s worse the lose tonight or the impending suspension of one of our only good players this season. That being Cole. Ladies and Gentlemen we are in deep trouble.
I don’t think it matters anymore who we have on the ice for any given game.
Even with all our players healthy, including Markov, we suck, and aren’t a playoff team.
Habs the exact opposite of what Cunnyworth talked about in his press conference.
Third period collapse, who would’ve thought?
Patches, that was a dumb penalty, you’d be sitting if I was coach.
Man this team frustrates me…oh well they must all be upset with the coaching change
Is there a team in the league with a softer forecheck than the Habs?
“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
How bout the fans stop booing their team? It’s stupid and childish, support your damn team people.
25 before 14
…I wonder if The Bell’s mics can pick-up My boos out here in BC ?
They said the Circus was coming in to the Bell Centre tomorrow,I think they got it wrong ,it showed up tonight.”””’
I just had a terrible thought. Maybe Cunneyworth found JM’s notes.
Go ahead and get outta there to beat the traffic Boone.
Being negative has its advantages,
you’re never disappointed.
La tradition continue…
Another brutal third period.
Campoli is was he is, and we dont need what he is. We need another big defensive D-man.
Real excited about next summer’s draft.
Stop crying he has been the coach for 11 hours, this team will get hot and make a run at the playoffs just give it time
time is growing thin.
Less than half the season done? Yea time is real thin.
yeah But thats what I was saying earlier, why would you give a guy 9 hours to prepare for the game, It is not an easy transition they should have done it yesterday or after the loss
Actually they traded Zubrus because he was too tall
Completely unnecessary icing, the boys are out of sync
Give the new coach 10 games before rushing to judgment.
The only part of JM’s famous system that I liked was the forward support to the d to breakout of your own zone.
Randy’s brought an aggressive forecheck to the table, it’ll take time to figure out positioning to stop breakdowns like the one on the Zubrus goal. Really think that ice-time based on merit is one thing that has got to change, and hopefully will. Cammys been awful lately, no idea whats going on there.
First thing RC needs to teach these guys is how to actually go for the hit. Bail out after bail out, that’s all they do.
Can’t teach courage and will. Half the players on this team have given up.
sounds like the government trying to hit banks.
Cunneyworth is ruining the young players on this team!
Anyone ever see the Disney flick Miracle? I would pull a Kurt Russell on these bums after this one!
Icing, are you kidding me, efin Icing
Campoli with another brutal giveaway right up the centre of the ice!
Full Breezer 4 Life
Ouch. Well NJ wants it more…
he didnt say pat burns
When we eventually fire Gauthier, it will take a smart GM 2-3 years to turn this crap roster into a Cup contender.
It’s obvious that Cammy & Pleks hate Cunneyworth’s guts.
Maybe Habs r tired from celebrating JM’s dismissal.
So which team was it that played last night?? Good luck Cunneyworth, you’re gonna need it with this bunch!
Let’s go back to what Gorges said earlier today: half the players on this team are playing, the other half are not. What does that tell you? If Cammalleri were my teammate, I’d slap that smugness of his right off his face.
Definitely Martin was the problem.
Good Luck Randy.
I will be back in September …..F this team!!
We don’t need Cunneyworth, we need confidence
Can’t beat a tired Devils team after your coach gets fired? Really?
They don’t look tired to me
This team still SUCKS FIRE THE GM .
Boone, you and my dad need to watch games together
two of the most depressing old men i’ve heard of
9:30 left and its over – you need to get laid and buy some rose colored glasses
Still 9 minutes to go..
Who did we give up Zubrus for again?
if i remember correctly we traded him cause brass thoguht he didnt have a work ethic.. well that was the reason i remember..
correct me if im wrong
“Emelin’s the real deal.”
Welcome aboard Randy. I feel for you pal.
He’s earning more than a heart surgeon. Don’t feel bad.
It’s all over but the shouting.
Somewhere, JM is laughing.
So it wasn’t Martin after all.
I’ve seen lots I liked tonight. Habs using their speed and looking more aggressive.
EDIT: Of course, that there was pretty fugly.
Watching a replay from the 70s?
Hahaha good IDEA!
Emmy for Volchenkov
I’m thinking that the salary cap issue will be solved at the deadline when some of the high priced help; that ain’t helpin’, get moved.
WTF is Pacioretty doing?
Time to start from scratch. So many stupid mistakes.
Scotty Bowman or Jesus Christ himself couldn’t turn this team around
