A game that was totally under control heads to a shootout:
What a nightmare season!
DD: BACKHAND SHELF!
• Who’s really coaching the team?
So, after fighting with Bell for about 12 days, I finally have my HD receiver for this game. Man, I can really see the suck much more clearly.
2 Stats I wonder about this season:
– How many guys got their first NHL goal against the Habs?
– How many teams got a shutout against the Habs?
I really don’t see how White doesn’t get a suspension for his earlier impersonation of Max Schmeling.
did malone get suspended
No but his GM is close enough to Shanny that Shanny named one of his kids after him.
my bad…i always get caught assuming life is fair and that is one thing but sometimes I trick myself into believing the NHL is fair..for that I may need counselling
In fairness, White probably deserves something. I respect the idea of protecting Price, but that was over the top.
Is Rene Bourque playing? I haven’t heard his name called out during the colour commenting. I assume he’s invisible. Now that AK is gone, I need to transfer a 1/3 of my scorn regarding the roster to him. The other 2/3 belong to the rich and useless: Gomez & Kaberle.
Yah he was hurt, knee on knee, but did come back. Missed a few shifts.
Thanks, I’ll cut Rene some slack.
Bourque has played very well.
This game? Or in general? Or in comparison to Cammy or AK?
PK has played 19:23 out of 40 minutes.
I’m loving the jam of our team. PG must be having a conniption fit.
Beauty of a goal by MaxP.
JM is watching this game and is probably going completely nuts, like Clouseau’s boss in Pink Panther.
Think he’s headed to TO to replace Wilson? hehe
Wonder what Staubitz is thinking. Extremely rough game against his old team so soon after he was put on waivers. How much can he step up for his new teammates?
Finally this team is getting down and dirty. There may be hope yet to be proud of this bunch before the season is out.
That crazy Russian is gonna handicap someone tonight… Love it! Emelinator!
Booing Gomez in a 3-1 game
Nicer than booing him when we’re losing.
Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.
Very good to see Bourque back on the ice.
emelin is a very angry man,i love it.
Awesome eh Showey! I absolutely love this Big Russian Bear!
He must have been a real nightmare for the guys in the khl.
He is turning out to be the Kasparaitus version 2.0 that I had hoped he would be.
I think you’re right about Peters. Marked man.
Emelin on Cole! Emelin on Malone! Emelin on the refs and linesmen! Emelin hits his shadow. As long as he doesn’t fight, because his face is basically glass.
I think Erik Cole will be teaching Emelin some words in English after the game.
Wow Cole got flipped.
lol,poor cole.Would have been a beauty had it been on an opposing player.
74 hitting 72 sums up the entire season in one play.
LOL that is one angry Russian
The Cirque du Soleil is still in town. Yeesh that was close.
come on shake it off cole
Emelin takes out Cole. Time for another beer.
Abashed the devil stood and felt how awful goodness was
Habs sign Morgan Ellis. The next Brad Richards – on D!
Let’s get Nathan Beaulieu signed next!
The purging of the dwarfs continue……
Had to be a dive ’cause it’s not like Kraperle is actually gonna hit someone
“man, I love winnin’; you know, it’s like better than losin’?”-
Ebby Calvin “Nuke” Laloosh
This is one wild ride… Going to get worse towards the end….. Refs STINK…
notice how emelin took a look over at the penalty box as he was skating off.peters is going to get one before the night is over.
Brad to the Bone time!!!!
the refs in the NHL are the worst of any pro sports and that’s including the CFL
ability is what you’re capable of doing.
attitude determines how you do it
Suddenly I feel bad for Kaberle. This is a first.
Emelin wont be turning his back like that any more. Nasty stuff. He’ll be all right. Soon. But that’s gotta smart.
And the penalty parade persists.
Yah I thought that was Emelins fault as well Don.
You’re going to need to work on your puns if you want to be the Ron to my Don.
Don doesn’t understand Puns, you, perhaps
I can pretend.
Emelin is one tough Russian Bear, to all those who like to call Russians Flaky, just please actually watch this guy play, Please.
I called Russians flaky. Emelin is good. One of the rare ones. Like Volchenkov and Kasparaitus.
Just so you are aware, my father was born there, so careful poking the bear! lol, Cheers HH.
My grand-father was born it what is now the Czech Republic. 😛 Back then it was part of Hungary!!
Wish we had Moen in this game.
This is gonna get U-G-L-Y.
Well I said if this gets out of hand PK will be a target. Lets see what happens next. The refs will want to get some PP time for Minny to try to get the game closer.
Come on Emelin, shake it off.
Everyone is getting injured! Argh.
I have to say it again. WTF?
Many suspensions, I hope.
Holy Crap, Refs get some control!!!!
PAGING MR. STAUBITZ
sorry for caps, but yes i am yelling
Man, Emelin’s had a rough week…
What a Snipe!
Ladies & Gentlemen, we have our bona fide big 30 goal scoring winger
Steady steady Pacioretty, how many goals will he getty.
What a snipe. The good old wrist shot.
Clutterbuck is a marked man.
The ice will be cluttered with buck soon.
Bucking clutter will soon be a national sport in Quebec.
Clusterfu&% is one dirty sh&^
What’s with Gomez’s visor last game, but none this game?
▭ ◌ ▭ ◌ ▭ ◌ ▭ ◌ ▭
Scouting is subjective.
Clutterbuck should seriously consider a name change substitute the B for an F!
Not good. Not good at all.
I’m not a huge believer in fights (like the one that opened this game), but I agree we need the big grit guys like White and Staubitz. Need to keep these type of guys.
Following action on HIO tonight and I feel like Mr. Delacroix visiting the burial of his son’s killer in “Dead Man Walking.” I don’t know why I’m here.
“It’s a moo point. Like a cow’s opinion, it doesn’t matter. It’s moo.”
If David Deharnais were a homosexual polygamist, he could have all of the Montreal media herd as his willing spouses–including our Mr. Boone.
i think he is saying boone and the media are gay.
not sure if he is insulting DD, Boone, the media or maybe you got it right…WTF???
Means their disproportionate love for DD is utterly indecent ;–)
If Bowman was coach he would have converted Gomez into a defence man a long time ago.
Gomez at least was an effective NHLer not so long ago. Well, very long ago.
Palushaj might never be. He’s like Tom Pyatt without the defensive skills.
You know Burlie and I are gonna hound you tonight…all in good fun though…right?
We have enough small d-men
or bench warmer….
Grant McCagg who writes for TSN and is a former scout, suggests Timmins has Grigorenko 5th on his list of forwards and doubts the Habs would pick him.
I trust Timmins.
The habs need competitiveness, skill, and character.
In Timmins we trust.
Agreed. in Timmins we trust.
EDIT: touché Gerald. Touché.
It will be an interesting draft. We may trade down or perhaps keep our spot (assuming we don’t have the #1 spot) and draft a d-man. With Nash in play, there could be all sorts of intrigue. Personally, I hope we get a forward because that’s our greatest need. Nice to also see we just signed Morgan Ellis – good PEI lad.
This is truly a terrible, terrible hockey game.
Geoffrion kid is a bit slow, foot-speed? Or a bit slow all his dog’s aren’t barking?
Habs are playing 6 defence men and 12 forwards. Darche and Diaz being the healthy scratches. 4 lines on paper at least.
Aaron Palushaj: 1 shift. 0:29 seconds TOI.
You are aware that Palushaj was hurt right?
He’s not hurt, he’s “tanking”.
Stupid me, I should know better, thanks P.
So you’re saying he got hurt on his 1 and only shift? I started following the game after the 1st goal was scored so no I didn’t know. How did he get hurt?
Pretty vicious stick to the eye.
Clipped near the eye. I hope he’s alright.
Isn’t Darche hurt or sick
Okay Okay. Darche and Diaz are the scratches. Bottom line is it’s 12 forwards and 6 D.
Palushaj has had one shift.
Is that clearer.
I already thought that had been made clear, start spelling it out Punkster!
Any chance that “grit” can be contagious?
Great PK. GREAT PK.
These refs are the worst. They have completely lost control of this game. They are calling crap that is not a penalty, and letting other violent stuff go.
This game is hilarious, lol.
Loved that interview with Danny Geoffrion, especially how excited Blake was to be joining Montreal!
Hopefully Blake plays a long time for us. His dad is definitely Boom Boom’s son.
Any word on Cole? Hand injury? Is he ok?
Subban: “Keister? I actually think I’m less likely to get injured that way because I’m using the strongest part of my body rather than my shoulder. Guys are so big and fast nowadays that you see more dislocated shoulders or sprained AC joints. When I’m using my hip and my keister, it’s probably putting me at less risk of that happening.”
Copied from our friends at EOTP
What a great invention this Interweb thingy is……check it out:
I laughed. But the only time they tanked, the picks went to Boston.
Wait a minute. Is “tank” a verb?
Just a thought…
are the ref’s trying to control the game, bring it back from the brink of a goon fest? That would explain the boarding call.
Then again, since I can’t read minds…yet, I’m just as inclined to call it an incompetent decision.
No one has any idea what is a penalty and what isn’t anymore.
Price got crashed into, no call, even though we’ve seen the Habs called for breathing near the opposing goalie.
A minute later, Price gets slashed, which would have never been called either, except White went mental on the guy, so he had to get a fighting call, which meant that the refs were forced to call the slashing too.
Like I said, even the Minn TV announcers said that the call on Noki was ridiculous. And they are homers.
Our three figure skaters each have a point tonight.
Gomez, Campoli and Kaberle?
Brunet is saying that Ron Wilson will get fired Sunday, after the National Broadcast Leafs-Habs game.
The maple griefs lost 10 of their last 11? Finally, something familiar?
What’s unfamiliar is one of our players sticking up for Price. Had to check the channel, then the calendar when I saw that.
Where do you guys like to eat before the game?
I like Entrecote Saint-Jean. 🙂 They’re open early, steak frites, wine, fast service, and then a short walk to the stadium.
wow, ’bout time I see this team playing with some grit. More of this please.
I didn’t think the Nokelainen hit was roughing. It wasn’t a hit from behind and it wasn’t boarding. Thought it was just a clean hard hit.
It was an awkward hit due to the angle and proximity of the boards. Could have gone either way but I don’t really have a problem with it being called.
So I am guessing the Habs got a new sponsorship from RedBull or Stanozolol Dealer!
I had to google that. Very impressive Burly. 😉
You have now been witness to all my brilliance!
Weird game. More PK practice for the Habs…
