A game that was totally under control heads to a shootout:
What a nightmare season!
DD: BACKHAND SHELF!
• Who’s really coaching the team?
That was an automatic goal. Game would’ve been over. Horrible call.
Eller, Kaberle, and Desharnais on the 1st three shooters
Honestly there are only two hockey games left on the schedule that matter: beat the LEAFS 2x
I would prefer the high draft pick – and – don’t want the LEAFS to make the playoffs. The loser point tonight is dumb strategy…
— HABS INSIDE/OUT R.I.P. —
Shoutout lineup: Gomez, Kaberle, Campoli.
i hope so
How many blown leads is that?
This should be good.
Still want to trade Subban?
Another useless, annoying, stoopid shootout.
Price better stop all of the shootout shots or he’ll never hear the end of this.
McGuire for GM!
Roy for Coach!
Sh*t for Brains!
I’m with you captain.
PK played a hell of a game.
Geoffrion in the Shootout?
I heard he’s good at shoot outs
Never seen so many people claim to be fans, and so unanimously hate every single player on the team. If you hate them all so much, why not cheer for a team with players you like instead and leave the rest of us out of it?
couldn’t agree more, it’s sickening
Minnesota stinks. And we stink. This is what it looks like when two teams that stink do battle for 65 minutes. Lots of failure and bad hockey.
Deharnais on the last-minute defensive faceoff? Seriously?
This means which of the following:
1.] Gainey is really coaching and wants to tank.
2.] Cunnyworth reads H-I/O and the Montreal media DD love-in.
3.] Cunnyworth can’t coach at this level.
No sad faces!!!!!!
YAKUPOV, YAKUPOV, GRIGORENKO, GRIGORENKO!!!!!!!!
Go Wild Go!!!
Habs playing with no drive, out of gas. And how many times do players want to make that extra pass? Argh!
This is where we miss Gomez….
Is he benched?
Took a therapy day with Markov. Or is it a therapy career in the latter’s case?
Freakin’ lovely! No one is getting in the way of that #1 pick!!!
Patches should have gotten the call.
But this collapse is freaking awesome.
We gave away Halak for that???? Good call Bob….
CHOKE HABS CHOKE
CHOKE CHOKE CHOKE
TANK TANK TANK
Why is everyone complaining? I though that y’all WANT them to lose.
I know right?!?
Don’t let the wultures getcha.
Not all of us CHuck.
I meant the ‘tankers’ complaining about blowing a lead. You’d think they’d be ecstatic!
I know, and I hear ya.
Minny absolutely blows and they still manage to make us look bad.
Three goals in the last four minutes. Unf*cking believable. This collapse is like a metaphor for the entire season.
This is stupid.
GO HABS GO! 2011-12 is probably not our year!

And cue the Price Trolls…3,2,…
oops too late, they’re already here.
OK lil Price Bot.
You answered the cue well.
Phew, that was close. We almost won. Back to normal.
Bring on the Leafs! Love amongst the uglies is the most beautiful love of all!
I can’t believe we held on for 1 point. We killed off the final 3.2 seconds with no problems.
Tears in my eyes laughing!!!! 🙂 🙁 🙂 🙁 🙂
The Hab’s FAMOUS Swiss Cheese Defense
We can only laugh!!!
4-4, this is becoming funny!
I really was going to make a shootout lineup joke but aaahhhh f. ya know.
Winning is of no value at this point in the season for this team. This is working as planned.
Pacioretty got hook twice. Can’t believe it.
4-4 am i the only one who saw it coming?
No. You’re not. If this game meant something I’d be angry. But really, I’m just numb at this point in the season.
That was just ridiculous, RC needs to be fired for the last five minutes of that game period.
He wasn’t on the ice. The guys on the ice are absolutely at fault for what just happened. Cunneyworth was probably moving his feet more on the bench than the D was on the ice.
That happened due to selfishness, that’s on price for trying to score!
It’s Chuck’s fault.
he passed to his guy and his guy coughed it up at the blue line.
Where’s the effin’ call on MaxP?
Our D is soooooooooooooo bad.
Ugh. It takes a special kind of coaching incompetence to put Desharnais out to take a key defensive zone faceoff. That’s not his role. You’re down a goal, you put out DD and company, not when you’re up by two.
Price wanted to score a goal and got caught. Don’t worry, Price will show em in the shoot out. Oh yea.
Can we all agree (now) that this is a horrible hockey club?
Wow Price was down on his knees for 30 secs before that puck was even there
Wow… this is really stupid
Yea baby! Embrace the tank! Suck for Glory!!!
All Price’s fault.
25 before 14
It’s spelled with a “g”.
How’s that for playoff goaltending– Scarey Price
Un fu#¥ing believable!
WTF was Price doing on his knees throughout that sequence ????
The refs win the game.
OK, they just have to be tanking on purpose.
Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.
Entirely on Price trying to score rather than freeze or clear it.
Did Price trip Max Pac?
Max dove like a dove on that one.
Bahaha is this for real? I left for like 10 minutes
Abashed the devil stood and felt how awful goodness was
OMG!! Aw come on!! I can’t f*cking believe this!!
The Tank™ is on.
LOL. Love it.
Full Breezer 4 Life
How was that not a penalty? Unbelievable.
Pacs dove on that one, lucky he didn’t get a penalty
Total dive. Habs should be crying for no call against Max.
The old H I/O hex:
3P 4:50 Was Dany Heatley dressed for this game?
Sigh … back to my beer
Ahhh, now here’s the Canadiens we know and….. know.
They don’t call him Scarey for nothing.
Uh oh…. uh oh…
Ok. My bad. This team still blows.
That save maybe, but the collision between Cole and Emmy will make the hilite reels all over.
I love how the crowd’s na na na na hey hey hey good bye has a French accent to it.
