Liveblog: The Lars Eller Show

jk11 1126 habs penguins 3rd 0658

The young centre explodes with a four-goal effort, including a spectacular penalty shot.
In one game, Eller doubled his season goal output.
And your Montreal Canadiens begin 2012 in spectacular fashion.

Leading 3-2 as the third period began, the Canadiens scored three times in 41 seconds to chase Ondrej Pavelec and turn a tight game into a rout..

Needless to say, seven goals was a season-high for the Canadiens.

    When’s the last time you cheered and laughed at the same time for something a Hab did? That was fun to watch.

    Just to chime in on the “I’ve loved Lars Eller longer than you” theme…

    I picked Eller in a hockey pool in 2010-2011 before he had played a regular season game for the Habs.

    My man crush goes back to the Halak trade. My initial reaction was to wonder why the Habs essentially made a trade for the minimum of what they were likely to get from an offer sheet, plus a couple of years. In looking into it I realized they (Timmins?) specifically wanted Eller.

    I have always seen him as a potential Kirk Muller/Trevor Linden type player which is my favorite kind.

    As i type this he scores his 4th of the night on a penalty shot.

    “Et le but!”

    What a f’n beauty.

  20. Propwash says:

    Cmaah Larry, ya cant….ya cant!

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

  21. Mavid says:

    what a fucken beauty!!!!!!!!!!!!! Are you kidding me….

  22. PrimeTime says:

    HA HA BEAUTY!!!!!!!!

  24. showey47 says:

    penalty shot? Nice for him but i think thats a bad call.

  25. Propwash says:

    Penalty shot!

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

  26. HabinBurlington says:

    Come on Lars you Viking, pillage and make it 4!

  27. habsfaninboston says:

    Penalty shot for Eller. Love it!

  28. Mondou6 says:

    EFFF YEAH!!! hahaha!!

  29. Mavid says:

    need I remind you ole haters..that it is played at many other games besides Habs including the Canada/USA gold metal game during the last Olympics…so piss off..

  30. Propwash says:

    How cool would it be for a classic Subbang! for good measure.

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

  31. HabinBurlington says:

    Hey Boone I will have you know when my Dad cut my hair in Winnipeg he used a very expensive bowl.

  32. Danno says:

    I’m pretty sure the last time the Habs scored 7 goals was when they played Minny last year and PK got his hat trick.


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

  33. HabinBurlington says:

    great effort by Cole, what a leader.

  34. jo_maka says:

    Some sweet finish with the danish. The kid’s a joy to watch 🙂

    I happen to have given up on the seson, but that doesn’t mean we will lose them all. And when we win, I like seeing the kids have fun like this. Makes me even happier about next year if we get a high pick. I’d rather that than hustle this hard to get the 9th or 10th spot and draft in the middle.

    For the remainder of the night, I’ll unsheath my otherwise bleak outlook. This is Larry’s night 🙂

  35. Mondou6 says:

    4 goals should be a “Pants Trick”.

    On second thought…No…

  36. habs-fan-84 says:

    Again, this is the type of potential people have seen out of Eller for over a year. Now he’s finally starting to get rewarded on the scoreboard, but he’s been playing great all year.

    If you go back and watch the 1st round from last year, an argument can be made that Eller was one of the 3 best forwards on the team.

    Cheers all! A fun game to watch. This is hockey, and it’s been a treat to watch tonight.

    • Mondou6 says:

      I love Eller, he’s one of my favorites on this team, but realistically, he has 7 goals this year. And Moen/AK did all the heavy lifting on goals #2 and #3.

      I still love the guy, and love the hat trick, but just sayin…

  37. ogilthorpe says:

    The drive for 25starts tonight….can anyone say Stanley cup?????? :):):):)

  38. remi_10069 says:

    I’m hoping he gets 4. Who was the last Hab to do that? Who was the last player?

    The tank has thrown a tread.

    ***Subbang Baby!!!***

  41. duffy says:

    Nice to see Eller get a hat trick ,he has been one of the few guys working hard most nights since the start.GO LARS GO.

  42. JasonM says:

    So, is this the right time to bring up how well Halak has been playing as of late?

  43. Mondou6 says:

    Great to see the cheers for Eller!

  44. NoTinFoilCups says:

    Eller is our future number one center. A future Pleks only with grit and more size.

  45. Danno says:

    PK has to hand over his hat trick pin over to Lars Eller now and Stubbs will have the honours of presenting it.


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

  46. montreal ace says:

    goal feeding frenzy by our Habs, take that tankers

  47. remi_10069 says:

    lets not start sucking each other’s &^$)s just yet. Last trick was PK vs Mins last year.


  48. Habfan10912 says:

    Love the effort tonight. Especially with the lead. I hope this is the turning point.

  49. HardHabits says:

    This style of hockey looks more like the hockey they played during that 4 game win streak what seemed like ages ago.

  50. habsfaninboston says:

    Is that the wave I see? It’s been a while.

  51. Mavid says:

    ole ole ole ole ole ole ole ole…there that otta piss ya off..

  52. mtlny says:

    Enough with the ole’s and praise … This team is still crappy

  53. TM357 says:

    I really missed the excitement I am feeling tonight watching my Habs …..this is hockey

  54. SlovakHab says:

    7-6 Winnipeg?

  55. Vid says:

    Kostitsyn must have really wanted Eller to get a hat trick.

    Further evidence to trade away some vets.

  56. LL-not the hockey player says:

    It’s bedtime Negative Neds. G’night!!!!

  57. Propwash says:

    Revenge for the last game against the Jets.

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

  58. Mavid says:

    i love the smile on that kid!!! what a wonderful site…and free wings!!!!!

  59. icemachine says:

    Is that the first Habs hatty since PK’s?

    Its time to switch to whiskey, we’ve been drinkin’ beer all night

  60. jmsheehy19 says:

    WOW Never Ever EVER split up Hamlet and Horatio again.

  61. The Dude says:

    Eller and the big boy’s line! How long since the last Hatty?

  62. duffy says:

    How are we gonna nail NAIL with play like that.???

  63. habs-fan-84 says:

    New Year, New Season!

  64. 24moreCups says:

    HAT fuckin’ TRICK! LARS ELLER! Loving this kid!

  65. twilighthours says:

    Anybody out there without a big smile on their face for Larry? What a night, what a kid.

    And Propwash, you can save all the feel-good-ness until Montreal wins a few in a row and/or makes the playoffs.


    • Propwash says:

      Win or lose, I always feel good. I don’t take wins or losses personally.

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

    • HardHabits says:

      If the Habs make the play-offs at the very least they’ll have been on a sick roll with momentum going in. Better to enter the play-offs at 8th from 12th at the dealine than coming in at 8th after being 4th.

  66. Danno says:


    No tanks!

    The janitors’ union is going to go after Carey Price for cleaning up the hats!


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

  67. Mila says:

    WTF is going on?!?!? I’m in shock.

  68. HabinBurlington says:

    Randy Cunneyworth for Mayor of Montreal!

  69. TM357 says:

    Haha yeah baby……that’s my Habs ……Eller and Moen on fire

  70. PrimeTime says:

    Lovin’ the smile~

  71. nickster13 says:

    My avatar is the man!

  72. ogilthorpe says:

    I’d love to see Eller get the hat trick!!! Oh my god!!!! As I’m typing this message, he get’s it!! He’ll yeah!!!!!

  73. VancouverHab says:

    Is that AK47 or Kovalev?
