The Canadiens had to win.
It’s almost over, compadres.
I support Gomez but even I say enough is enough. Bite the bullet put him on waviers . This team can’t carry him. So did the Habs spend the time off at a Montreal strip club eating greasey hamburgers. Did Buffalo spend the time off with the Doctor from Toronto getting mother littler helps shot in their asses.
Double-shifting Gomez is a lot like single-shifting Gomez, which is a lot like not having Gomez in the lineup…
Seriously, why did Subban become a Dman? Call me crazy, but he could’ve been a great winger….yes I’ve been drinking tonight.
❝ I can’t really hear what Jeremy says, because I’ve got my two Stanley Cup rings plugging my ears.❞
Hope they’ve got bottled oxygen on the bench. They need it.
This is it. Unless we can pull something out of the bag in the next few minutes, we’ll find ourselves in 14th place, and we can say good-bye to any lingering playoff hopes. Islanders won, Tampa and Washington are tied 3-3, so both teams will jump over us on victories.
Not fair to pin this all on Gill. Team tank with very few exceptions.
I’m so tired of hearing this every time he attracts some criticism. He hasn’t been able to skate with anyone in the league for 2 years and now he’s becoming less able to contain players in front of the net. Anyone who thinks he will return anything of value from a contender is dreaming.
Forgot to mention less than zero offensive skill to boot.
Gotta play like hair is on fire…..
Story of the season, cannot finish.
Leave it all out there boys!!!
They were given that goal and couldn’t put it away
penalties is really killin us.. even if they dont score on us on the pk..
its just tiring out our pk unit
and all this positional d is driving me nuts.. 5 on 5 should not look like a pk for us..
Go habs.. steal one!
“Emelin’s the real deal.”
WHAT A SICK PERFORMANCE IN A “MUST” GAME. AND ONCE AGAIN MR GILL ON THE ICE FOR BOTH GOALS. WHEN ARE THE COACHES GOING TO LEARN WHAT A LIABILITY HE IS
Gomez= Ron flockhart.
A bunch of skating….No results.
Someone has to stand up and explain whats the hell is going on. So the Sabres all of a sudden are the greatest skating team in the history of hockey, I seen this trick before with Nashville. Its called Mother’s little helpers. The NHL is the dirtest, drug ladden league in sports. I am sorry no F&(%ing way Buffalo just put together a exceptional game. On top of that you got the two blind mice refing. They don’t miss a thing on the Habs but boy oh boy they are human with Buffalo.
If thinking all that helps you sleep at night, so be it. The rest of us are quite happy to live in the real world.
While blunden tries i am wondering how did he make the canadian national junior team with so minimal skills
Pens 5 Leafs 4 Final
ive got a new nickname…”next goal cole”
(can be replaced in go habs go chant)
Pleaseeeeeeeee find a taker for Gomez.
Well HH you were right…. Malkin Shootout
He owns the coveted F.
The dream is dying? LOL I’m sure Boone and the rest of the media will dream up other dramatics to “report”
This whole double-shifting Gomez experiment has been a total bust. Sure he looks great out there flying and buzzing around, but he’s really not accomplishing anything.
He’s padding his Fenwick stats.
Ugh, one time in Bangkok I had my Fenwick padded, it’s over-rated.
Full Breezer 4 Life
Hangover 2 was funny.
There ya go. Learn Habs. Get it deep and keep it there. !!!
k, so we just watch pens tie leafs with 6.6 left. we go down 2-1 with 15 left in the third and rats jump ship. dont cheer if we score ok, just call it a night now!
the pens earned to come back. the habs didnt show up accept cole and price.
I`m watching the MSG feed and just heard they say DAIH-SHAR-NAIH for Desharnais.
F*cking asleep all night. Listening to all the players talk about how they need to be ready every night. Bullsh!t line. You come out and play like this all night and suck throughout the whole game.
Sell, sell, sell…
Boys need to pick it up.
I want to see Emelin on the next PP.
Gill’s value went down a little on that goal.
Yep, just what we need. More Gill. I’d rather see the kids out there, making mistakes and learning what not to do.
Gotta say, the Buffalo announcers are great…No homer BS at all, even questioning some of the calls for Buffalo and against us.
Yes, I noticed that as well.
Blatant homers like Boston and Toronto are the exceptions in this league.
You saw hard work Burtuzzi?
Is AK benched?
Well at least Pit has a chance to still win. They were down 4-2 to Leafs and cam back to tie it late in 3rd
They had too much time off and are playing like crap except for Cole and Price
That’s too bad. The habs worked so hard….
HaHa. Habs get the better draft pick.
Kiss my hAbSS!!!
and that is a the game
good, later then
Conan: Almost 20 years of pitiless cumber! No rest, no sleep like other men. And yet the spring wind blows, Subotai. Have you ever felt such a wind?
Subotai: They blow where I live too. In the north of every man’s heart.
Conan: It’s never too late, Subotai.
Subotai: No. It would only lead me back here another day. In even worse company.
Conan: For us, there is no spring. Just the wind that smells fresh before the storm.
Back in the old days this is what they used to call a tie.
Saw that coming from a mile away.
Don’t let the wultures getcha.
Can we win an D-zone faceoff?
Too many blind passes to the slot. Better to eat the puck on the boards.
PK degenerating ?
On the scoreboard because of his patented slew foot.
If MTL gets 2 points here I will be shocked. They look terrible.
You look terrible! All grey and shadowy…
they do not deserve a win tonight.
Maybe the Habs are doing the rope-a-dope?
Jack Edwards is a clam, Bruins are pukes.
am i wrong for thinking the crowd should react to the leaf loser point? are the league scores really as bad in the bell centre as on rds?
Mike, Engqvist IS a bad one.
Where’s Louie The White?
Another stupid penalty from the Habs.
Boone’s stats of hits and sog are useless
Is every team going to OT tonight?
Laffs blew 3rd period 2 goal lead against the Pens in the last 5 minutes.. last one with 6.6 seconds left!
Evgeni F. Malkin
Pens tied it with seconds left. Lol. Under review. Hopefully the leafs lose. I hate the leafs.
Pens v Leafs now at 4’s.Woohoo!
With the leafs up by 2 they get their first pk in 8 plus periods..plecks and gomez terrible so far…diaz and weber in a 7 game series with the bruins/flyers etc..these guys are swiss league material..
Only seven periods of hockey to go before Scott Gomez reaches his scoreless one-year anniversary
“Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”
meat for the media!
Hate to say it, leafs vs pens is a much more entertaining then the Habs game.
Leafs play like Habs..just threw the game away in last 10 min.I mean they dominated for50 min..now 4.4 with 7 seconds
We shoot traitors.
Would you actually waste a perfectly good bullet on a leaf fan?
Thanks for the guilt. Like I need more in my life.
Not sure how much of this is Habs being out of sync, following the break and the great tease against Detroit. But this team doesn’t look like it’s about to go on a 8th game winning streak, which is about what we need if there is to be meaningful games in March.
Not happening, it seems. The good thing is from where we are, we don’t need to tank to get a high draft pick. Just keep doing what we have been doing.
I can’t believe anyone has been discussing the possibility of the playoffs since December.
I’,m sorry Bill:;<,-= I'v'e brought this up to you b4, but I have to fess up. His stare. His stare. CHANGE UR AVATAR!
I won’t, and I hope you don’t either 🙂
So LOL. Hope to meet you some day. Biere sur moi.
^^ Absolument mon ami.
Regardless if they are in playoff position or not they should try for any takers for Kabs at the deadline. Where is Campoli again?
LET THE FIRE SALE AND REBUILD (TANK) BEGIN ,SHES ALL OVER FOR THIS SEASON!!!!
Anyone have a link for the game???
Cole has got to score in the 3rd period. He has come too close too many times so far.
“Ayoye” – Paul Gaustad
Gaustad took a bullet off Kostitsyn for the Sabres
1) Watching this game, I get the feeling the ice sucks tonight. Lots of bouncing pucks, and lots of guys falling inexplicably.
2) Passing is TERRIBLE tonight, for both teams.
3) Subban…stop the dirty crap. Kicking a leg out on a guy is going to draw the attention of the league in a bad way if you keep it up.
4) I love Emelin more and more each game. He makes mistakes, but he is a keeper. At some point he’s going to mis-time one of those hipchecks he loves to throw and land a suspension or two, but until then…fun to watch.
5) The Eller line has not been “on” tonight. Hope they have a good 3rd period. Eller, like Subban, sometimes makes a complicated or risky play when a simple play is available. They’ll both learn.
6) Bugs, wherever he went, was right; Desharnais is a keeper.
7) The Plekanec line has been fairly quiet tonight too. A line with three veteran players needs to step up down the stretch if the Habs have any hope.
Cole, Desharnais and Eller are the only forwards playing tonight.
Plekanec is not doing much, which has been going on for a couple of months now.
For this season, I blame the PP and Plekanec, as they were keys to our wins last season. Now, they are non factors.
Falling bodies and terrible passing have become epidemic in recent weeks. Poor ice probably accounts for some of it but, man oh man, when players can’t execute simple passes at that level, it makes you shake your head.
I don’t get it?
Did you shake your head?
Lucky the Sabres are a crappy team otherwise this would have been over long ago.
“I figure PG has one or 2 moves left to bring the Habs that extra step closer to perhaps being the best in the league.” – Einstein
Price deserves to win. So does Buffalo.
Someone needs to get their hands on a clinometer…Would be interesting to know what angle the ice is tilted (towards the Hab net).
They’re hanging on for dear life.
Ottawa not smoking Boston anymore as they are up 4-3 (that’s what I call a good team) and Toronto is up 4-1 on Pittsburgh and close to winning their 3rd straight (that’s what a call a good playoff push).
My Habs have none of that. Sad that the next meaningful game is in October – and it is still January in Canada, FFS.
On the other hand Pittsburgh looks like the habs
In one game, yes. On the season, they have 13 extra points. I’d take that, thanks
Must feel so good hanging in there by himself.
Question: With such a completely impotent power-play, why don’t they just rotate the lines during a man advantage? The lads will have more space out there and I guarantee, they will not be any worse than 12%!
“… but it’s still better than cheering for the Leafs!”
Dump and Chase is so pointless on the PP.
They need to gain the zone and not cough up posession..
“It’s just an opinion – I could be wrong”
Haha good effort but Blunden is no greztsky
We look to be taking over.
Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.
OK maybe not …
