Photo by Dario Ayala of The Gazette)

A short week ago, your Montreal Canadiens were losing at home to the Leafs.
Now they’re hot.
And off for a while


  1. geo_habsgo says:

    No one saw this coming. Hope we can keep the good vibes going.

  2. immortalhab says:

    I’m totally convinced now: Americans don’t believe in violence.

  3. Habbu says:

    Who’d a thunk 3 wins vs Philly Bos Bos. Yippee I can finally leave the basement

  4. showey47 says:

    good game boys but alot closer then it should have been.

  5. VancouverHab says:

    Three Stars: DD, Cole, Diaz!

  6. westerfield says:

    beating boston back to back. i love it. love it. great job boys.

  7. T-roy West says:

    My three stars for Montreal are Cole, Darche and Diaz.

  8. immortalhab says:

    No we’re not. As a Canadian I have very little in common with American values. I won’t be lumped in with Conservatives.

  9. WOOOO! Back-to-back sweep of the Bruins!

  10. NLhabsfan says:

    Isn’t it nice to beat the arseholes twice in a ROW.

  11. Mavid says:

    sorry…from the politically incorrect generation…i mean no about “tool”

    second place is just the first loser

  12. T-roy West says:

    no small forwards on the ice now please.

  13. VancouverHab says:

    Gio miss: Pleks hit!! (And what a calm classy play–Star !)

  14. Habbu says:

    Thanks be to God……aaaaamen

  15. WOOOO

    PLEKY – Keep your tricks with you Julien.

  16. JayBee says:

    LOL @ Budaj looking at the Bruins bench with a big grin.

  17. Propwash says:

    Eat it Boston pukes.


  18. LL says:

    OLE OLE OLE hehe

  19. HabinBurlington says:

    Finally we get an empty netter!

  20. NLhabsfan says:

    Yea baby!!!

  21. showey47 says:

    thank you pleky wooooohoooo

  22. showey47 says:

    come on gio

  23. VancouverHab says:

    Is this a “late unnecessary icing causing a loss” deja vu?

  24. EricInStL says:

    PK played that one like a rookie….He was all over the place.

  25. Habbu says:

    That’s on you PK for that dumb icing

  26. HabinBurlington says:

    Price needs to have the paddle on the ice there

  27. showey47 says:

    why do things always need to be like this?

  28. NLhabsfan says:

    I am an an American born… I DON’T THINK SO:)

  29. VancouverHab says:

    Is DD playing this period?

  30. Habbu says:

    Diaz is an intelligent player. Whoever discovered him….kudos

  31. otter649 says:

    Ms Campbell what is accidently on purpose icing ?

  32. HardHabits says:

    Julien calls a TO. Hope this works against him.

  33. EricInStL says:

    PK didn’t try to score, Boone. He misjudged his lob.

  34. VancouverHab says:

    Subban you idiot! (JM uses the “F’ word ;–)

  35. T-roy West says:

    When our forwards forecheck then wer’re hard to beat.

  36. VancouverHab says:

    Diaz has absolute calm.

  37. HabinBurlington says:

    That montage of Julien exasberated was brilliant on Rds

  38. immortalhab says:

    “fecking” is not a word. And I know he’s Canadian. I didn’t say ship him back – I said ship him to. And I’m sure Americans are worried about violence in hockey 😉

    • Chorske says:

      It is indeed an Irishism.

      And Americans in general don’t care about hockey. Part of the reason is that they are so heavily invested in football. Another part of the reason is that hockey has a bad reputation here.

      You can wink all you want. Every marketing study done on the subject has confirmed that American fans don’t go to games to see fights- it is the CANADIAN market that is most conservative when it comes to hockey rule changes, particularly those that pertain to fighting.

  39. HardHabits says:

    Julien is quite the crude f*ck*n’ b*st*rd.

  40. HabCez says:

    Nice seeing Cole talking to AK and Eller!

  41. VancouverHab says:

    Is that Cole Eller AK? Yay!

  42. stephen says:

    I like what Blunden brings to his limited role. Exerts good pressure and finishes his checks. Can’t complain.

  43. shootdapuck says:

    JM is playing not to lose AGAIN!

    Just play to win !

    … the fans of the Boston Bruins now have lost forever any right to complain that “the league” is out to get their team, and that the Montreal Canadiens have some kind of pull inside the NHL home office.

    Charles P. Pierce – Boston Globe

    • VancouverHab says:

      So far so great, dude….

      • shootdapuck says:

        Playing to win for 2 periods was “so far so great” the 3rd was a classic JM defensive shell!

        Why change what was working?

        … the fans of the Boston Bruins now have lost forever any right to complain that “the league” is out to get their team, and that the Montreal Canadiens have some kind of pull inside the NHL home office.

        Charles P. Pierce – Boston Globe

  44. NLhabsfan says:

    Cole plays well against Boston.

  45. VancouverHab says:

    Eller is definitely a work-in-progress (but I bet he will eventually be great.)

  46. T-roy West says:

    When does AK46 cut to the net like Cole does. That’s a breath of fresh air. AK46= trade bait.

  47. NLhabsfan says:

    Nice plays by Cole!!

  48. Habbu says:

    Anybody seen Max in the third?

  49. immortalhab says:

    Just love it when a fellow Canadian sticks up for the US. This is the third time I’ve had someone come to their rescue. Thank God people are willing to stick up for those poor Yankees.

    • Chorske says:

      And the problem is?? I am as die-hard a Canadian as anyone, born and raised and worked the no side of referendums and coordinated buses to the 95 rally, so I won’t take patriotism lessons from anyfeckingone. But I have also lived and worked everywhere from Tokyo to Oswego NY (birthplace of Eric Cole) to where I am now: Fort Lauderdale. And TRUST ME: we are more similar to the USA than we are different.

  50. showey47 says:

    Nice defensive play by subban

  51. VancouverHab says:

    Price: thorougbred. That’s all
    Spacek: any more simple he’d be a machine.
    Cole: whole new dimension to the team
    MaxPac: I’m in love.
    P.K.: if he keeps the discipline up, he’ll be in the elite.
    A.K.: Always a danger
    Georges: he’s ba-a-a-a-ck!

    Gio? Cammi? Yeuch (so far)

  52. Mavid says:

    The morons here in Ottawa do a segment every morning with that retard McGuire..he was spewing his usual crap going about how he and Pearn were best buddy pals(like most of the NHL)…and how Gauthier is such an a hole for firing him…were I work usually if you get your ass canned they don’t turn around and offer you another job with the company…as Gauthier offered him another job with the organization..pretty decent I would say…bunch of friggen haters who cares what they think anyway…

    second place is just the first loser

  53. T-roy West says:

    Darche is having an awesome game tonight.

  54. Habbu says:

    Puck watching in our own zone not good

  55. NLhabsfan says:

    Nice miss

  56. showey47 says:

    too fancy on the 2 on 1.

  57. Habso says:

    Habs don’t play again till Friday?!?!? Who the hell does the sched for the NHL, a room full of monkeys throwing feces at each other?

  58. immortalhab says:

    Un Canadien, thank you for that intelligent argument. I couldn’t agree more. I would like to add that it’s awful that we pay CBC to let Don Cherry be the voice of Machiavellianism in Canada. Ship him to the US where violence is worshipped.

    • ffenliv says:

      I don’t think the US is the only place where violence is cheered. Fans in Canada stand up and yell just as loud for a fight as they do in the US, and in every building fans go wild for a huge hit, and only after it becomes obvious that a player is injured do they calm down.

      I, too, appreciated Un Canadien’s argument, and the way he (she? .. who knows) wrote it up – a level you don’t often see on the internet. I just disagree with parts of it.

    • Chorske says:

      Do I need to remind you that Cherry is CANADIAN?

      And that the biggest challenge facing hockey in US markets is that the game is perceived as needlessly violent?

      Ignoramus. Get your facts straight. Canadians can be so fecking smug.

  59. HardHabits says:

    Eller still being put into the game and not stapled to the bench. WTF is going on here? It’s like somebody hacked JM’s account.

  60. Habbu says:

    Nice Price imitation…..Tuuka

  61. CharlieHodgeFan says:

    I hope the Bruins don’t hire Perry Pearn and immediately fire him…

  62. otter649 says:

    Time for #15 to score after Montreal’s other centres have scored tonight……

  63. habbernack says:

    Nice play by AK…Eller should have a hat trick tonight.

    ability is what you’re capable of doing.
    attitude determines how you do it

  64. showey47 says:

    Nice save by rask

  65. NLhabsfan says:


  66. Propwash says:

    WOW. Sick move by AK, and sick save by Rask


  67. VancouverHab says:

    Am I missing something about Cammi & Gionta? They look nogood…

  68. Habbu says:

    I would keep Cammy off the ice…..he’s not right

  69. Danno says:

    When is Subban going to get a wood stick?

    This styrofoam one just won’t do.


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

  70. geo_habsgo says:

    This is pretty crazy reffing tonight. We are definitely paying for the penalty parade in the second. At least they are equal opportunity I guess..

  71. T-roy West says:

    Cassie showcasing herself for Juliens job, lol.

  72. shootdapuck says:

    Goon show!
    Only from behind!

    … the fans of the Boston Bruins now have lost forever any right to complain that “the league” is out to get their team, and that the Montreal Canadiens have some kind of pull inside the NHL home office.

    Charles P. Pierce – Boston Globe

  73. Dryden_29 says:

    Horton is a gutless scumbag…just sayin….

  74. Habbu says:

    Frustration from the Hunchback…and no call

  75. Mavid says:

    Horton hears….two minutes

    second place is just the first loser
