Liveblog: Canadiens blow 4-1 lead, win shootout


A game that was totally under control heads to a shootout:

What a nightmare season!

Pacioretty: Save

Cullen: Save


Heatley: Save

Bourque: Save

Setoguchi: Oy!

β€’ Who’s really coaching the team?


  1. L Elle says:

    That was an automatic goal. Game would’ve been over. Horrible call.

  2. krulmadden says:

    Eller, Kaberle, and Desharnais on the 1st three shooters

  3. BKAK72 says:

    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…


  4. Mondou6 says:

    Shoutout lineup: Gomez, Kaberle, Campoli.

  5. NLhabsfan says:

    How many blown leads is that?

  6. HNS says:

    This should be good.

  7. habs-fan-84 says:

    Still want to trade Subban?

  8. podbay says:

    Another useless, annoying, stoopid shootout.

  9. Captain aHab says:

    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!

  10. jmsheehy19 says:

    PK played a hell of a game.

  11. HabinBurlington says:

    Geoffrion in the Shootout?

  12. jedimyrmidon says:

    We’re screwed.

  13. English is not a Crime says:

    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?

  14. Mondou6 says:

    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.

  15. VancouverHab says:

    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.

  16. gordon bombay says:

    No sad faces!!!!!!


    Go Wild Go!!!

  17. podbay says:

    Habs playing with no drive, out of gas. And how many times do players want to make that extra pass? Argh!

  18. HabinBurlington says:

    This is where we miss Gomez….

  19. Bozo McBozo says:

    Freakin’ lovely! No one is getting in the way of that #1 pick!!!

  20. twilighthours says:

    Patches should have gotten the call.

    But this collapse is freaking awesome.

    Good times.

  21. HNS says:

    We gave away Halak for that???? Good call Bob….



  23. Chuck says:

    Why is everyone complaining? I though that y’all WANT them to lose.

  24. Captain aHab says:

    Minny absolutely blows and they still manage to make us look bad.

    McGuire for GM!
    Roy for Coach!
    Sh*t for Brains!

  25. podbay says:

    Three goals in the last four minutes. Unf*cking believable. This collapse is like a metaphor for the entire season.

  26. RGM says:

    This is stupid.

    GO HABS GO! 2011-12 is probably not our year!

  27. Propwash says:


    Don’t let the wultures getcha.

  28. L Elle says:

    And cue the Price Trolls…3,2,…

    oops too late, they’re already here.

  29. Phew, that was close. We almost won. Back to normal.

  30. Bozo McBozo says:

    Bring on the Leafs! Love amongst the uglies is the most beautiful love of all!

  31. Mondou6 says:

    I can’t believe we held on for 1 point. We killed off the final 3.2 seconds with no problems.

  32. FlyingFrenchie says:

    The Hab’s FAMOUS Swiss Cheese Defense

  33. Rainrocket16 says:

    We can only laugh!!!

  34. SlovakHab says:

    Hahahahaaa!! πŸ˜€
    4-4, this is becoming funny!

  35. kempie says:

    I really was going to make a shootout lineup joke but aaahhhh f. ya know.

  36. hablifting says:

    Winning is of no value at this point in the season for this team. This is working as planned.

  37. jedimyrmidon says:

    Pacioretty got hook twice. Can’t believe it.

  38. Boomer says:

    4-4 am i the only one who saw it coming?

  39. kholdstare says:

    That was just ridiculous, RC needs to be fired for the last five minutes of that game period.

  40. Rickly33 says:

    That happened due to selfishness, that’s on price for trying to score!

  41. L Elle says:


    Where’s the effin’ call on MaxP?

    Our D is soooooooooooooo bad.

  42. Talik Sanis says:

    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.

  43. HNS says:

    Price wanted to score a goal and got caught. Don’t worry, Price will show em in the shoot out. Oh yea.

  44. BKAK72 says:

    Can we all agree (now) that this is a horrible hockey club?


  45. richriga says:

    Wow Price was down on his knees for 30 secs before that puck was even there

  46. danhabsfan says:

    Wow… this is really stupid

  47. Bozo McBozo says:

    Yea baby! Embrace the tank! Suck for Glory!!!

  48. Sharks9 says:

    All Price’s fault.

    25 before 14

  49. HabinBurlington says:

    Bonus Hockey!!!

  50. blu_blanc_rouge says:

    How’s that for playoff goaltending– Scarey Price

  51. riddler says:

    Un fu#Β₯ing believable!

  52. EricInStL says:

    WTF was Price doing on his knees throughout that sequence ????

  53. podbay says:

    The refs win the game.

  54. HabFanSince72 says:

    OK, they just have to be tanking on purpose.

    Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.

  55. punkster says:

    Entirely on Price trying to score rather than freeze or clear it.

    ***Subbang Baby!!!***

  56. Malice says:

    Bahaha is this for real? I left for like 10 minutes

    Abashed the devil stood and felt how awful goodness was

  57. krulmadden says:

    OMG!! Aw come on!! I can’t f*cking believe this!!

  58. HardHabits says:

    The Tankβ„’ is on.

  59. hablifting says:

    LOL. Love it.

  60. Bill says:


    Full Breezer 4 Life

  61. jedimyrmidon says:


  62. podbay says:

    How was that not a penalty? Unbelievable.

  63. EricInStL says:

    Pacs dove on that one, lucky he didn’t get a penalty

  64. HabFanSince72 says:

    The old H I/O hex:

    3P 4:50 Was Dany Heatley dressed for this game?

    Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.

  65. krulmadden says:

    Sigh … back to my beer

  66. HabsInHamilton says:

    Ahhh, now here’s the Canadiens we know and….. know.

  67. HNS says:

    They don’t call him Scarey for nothing.

  68. punkster says:

    Oh my…

    ***Subbang Baby!!!***

  69. Propwash says:

    Frig sakes….

    Don’t let the wultures getcha.

  70. jedimyrmidon says:

    Uh oh…. uh oh…

  71. hablifting says:

    Ok. My bad. This team still blows.

  72. L Elle says:


  73. L Elle says:

    That save maybe, but the collision between Cole and Emmy will make the hilite reels all over.

  74. HardHabits says:

    I love how the crowd’s na na na na hey hey hey good bye has a French accent to it.
