You are here: Home » News » Liveblog: Another home-ice suckfest
The Canadiens played another gosh-awful first period en route to losing their 22nd game at the Bell Centre.
Mercifully, there are only nine home games left.
And the boos rained down on our hapless heroes …
It’s getting worse!! It looks like the LAFFS are getting at least one point….and the Jets will get two……no Flyers scored….at least one point also…..DAMN!!!!…..LAFFS get only one…..Devils became temporarily stupid tonight…..at the wrong time. Now there will be at least a 7 point deficit between Montreal and 8th place….take those Winnipeg Thrashers out Flyers!!!
How much pain can one take in one night? Leafs just scored with their goalie pulled to draw 3-3.
I’ll see your pain….and raise you with……never mind the Jets lost in overtime. Only a 7 point deficit between Les Canadiens and 8th place. Still 42 possible points to acquire. Not one team is even unofficially out at the bottom of that conference. Some good news perhaps, from an otherwise nightmare of an evening.
At least Boone is in top form tonight. Good show!
Nice coverage on Ribeiro. Nice collapse 13 seconds later.
Leads tied jersey
Brodeur lets one in with 30 sec to go.
Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.
Why is Leblanc playing on the habs. He should be in Hamilton logging tons of ice time.
The tanks are rolling in now.
I guess Weber’s fifteen minutes are up.
Fans starting to boo team. Will Gainey make a statement to the effect we don’t need fans like that..or is he booing himself?
i wouldn’t pay to watch this ‘team’ play, but I’d pay to see PG’s next conversation with Geoff Molson
With the effort in front of him, Price should just pull himself and go watch a movie or something.
i wouldn’t pay to watch this ‘team’ pay, but I’d pay to see PG’s next conversation with big Geoff M
can RDS show if PG in on BBM making some deals now. That would be more fun to watch.
Can it get any worse ? Kostitsyn ,COMPLETLY USELESS.!!!!
Now everyone is going to climb aboard the tankwagon.
Bunch of foul-weather fans.
You’re a tanker too. Dont deny it
That wagon was full already in late October.
Finishing last every 5-10 years seems to work out well for the Penguins. Finishing 8-9 every year, not so much for us.
Aw man now you’ve done it. Mattyleg is going to give it to you.
Carey, get off your knees. Ash Wednesday doesn’t start until tomorrow.
“My face is my mask,” Gump Worsley
I think Price should do an own goal just to show the team he thinks they suck
We’re back in the Yakupov sweepstakes!
Were they ever out of it ?
That 4 game winning streak had me nervous…
At least there are no flukey goals so far tonight. Two pretty good goals, plus a “flub” by Price. Let’s see how the other low ranking teams in the East do.
Good night, take care, drive home safe, see you next year folks..
Is there a link for habstank yet?
Funny how the Habs can look so clueless against most of the teams from the western conference this season.
Price will never make it in the NHL……….
“take your time and hurry up”
Let the tanking begin.
Is the Fat Lady ready?
She’s certainly fat enough.

Next home game brown paper bag night.
Price real bad on that sequence
Price, F Montreal & leave son …
Weird how you’re a Price fan but not a Habs fan.
Was thinking the same thing Clay.
Priceberg here has been consistent in everything except his name, Gerald
And the Fat Lady has begun warming up. Too bad.
Like I said 2 weeks ago: I hope for wins, but the losses are coming, so I get to enjoy a decent pick, and the odd win.
They had *endless* chances to put this one away, and never even came close.
Time to score one to get the home crowd into it, but then fail to get the second.
On the the other hand, I have Lehtonen in my pool…
Heh, give up another before I can even type it out.
If Price starts the next game, the coaching staff are idiots. The season is OVER guys. Give him a rest.
So you’re a tanker
That’s all she wrote.
Oh noes….Darche is hurt.
McGuire for GM!
Roy for Coach!
Sh*t for Brains!
Who will they put on the PP now?
Double time for super Scott…
Nice hustle AK. This guy doesn’t give a crap….
“take your time and hurry up”
That’s all for this year
Tanks for the big effort tonight boys.
“Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”
Is it a mathematical impossibility for the Habs to catch Columbus?
T-A-N-K…..tank, tank, tank!
And Ribeiro of all people.
They’re just trying to save water. Price is the only one that’s going to need a shower after this game
How good is Grigorenko?
Oh yeah read that piece on RC today – WTF are you doing not playing Eller???? You gotta to be kidding me. The guy contributes way more than Gomez. Totally channelling JM all over again
An interesting question for the NHLPA poll would have been ”easiest team to play against”.
If Montreal doesn’t win that one….
Diaz = painful
Swear to God, I’d rather have a 64 year old Chelios than these guys.
Two periods… Habs haven’t even dressed for the game yet! Would someone please tell these guys they are supposed to be battling every shift! Playing for their playoff lives are they? Man, what a lack of effort, so far…
They have given up! Injuries.. fatigue… flu.. trade rumours.
I guess Cunneyworth is saving Eller for the PK.
I no longer buy what our coach is selling.
I can’t even figure out what he’s trying to sell.
Last two games the Habs have been especially dainty. Not wanting to get the nose bloodied, not particularly interested in upping their game. Just outclassed? Tired? Disinterested? Not sure how they can’t find the motivation, given the situation. Maybe they just don’t believe they have a winning game plan.
pavelic may have just made one of the best saves of the year.
If RCs showcasing of Campoli results in a 3rd round draft pick does RC pick up a Million dollar bonus this offseason?
Winnipeg, Buffalo, and Tampa Bay all leading by a goal in the 3rd.
The last Hab to score over 30 goals was Richard Zednik with 31 in 2002-2003 season. In back to back seasons 2005-2006 and 2006-2007 Michael Ryder had 30 goals. Last year Gionta had 29.
This year maybe Max Pac. In the last 10 years Zednik and Ryder. Thats it.
“take your time and hurry up”
It may be cliche’ but this period coming up determines the rest of the season. Looking at the standings / scores tonight and the fact of crappy playing and confidence this one tells the tale
Goals from Ribs and Ryder cumming up…..
Thats the way it always goes
Anyone remember Gaston Gingras…. not sure but I swear I saw the dude in Ottawa today… gotta be a double.
The original MAB.
He used to keep the fans behind the net awake when there was no net.
I remember Jerry Korab hitting an old lady in the head with a slap shot, ah the memories….
Guess you are not Gramma’s darling!
Gramma wasn’t paying attention. Not my fault I said to sit the F down….
@duffy can you imagine this team without price and riding Budaj? Shudder
Love gettin pushed around all period, blowing some good chances and most of all LOVE watching Gomez earn his pay cheque shift after shift after…I must say I wouldn’t pay to watch Gomer play hockey but I might pay to watch him leave the Bell Centre for the last time.
After today it will be Toronto, Winnipeg, Washington and Florida battling for 2 playoff spots (one of which is guaranteed to Washington or Florida).
And we can tankapalooza baby.
Wpg. is ahead of Washington aren’t they?
Yes – I should have added them to the guaranteed group.
Boone..I believe Habs scored a goal vs New Jersey…or maybe it was just a mirage.
OK When the other team has a player in the penalty box in a game against the Montreal Canadiens there is a new league rule.
“THIS SHALL NOT BE DEEMED A POWER PLAY OR IN ANY WAY BE REFERRED TO AS ONE.”
Jeff Carter… That’s who I’d like to see between Cole & MaxPac
10000km. That’s what I’d like to see between this team and current mgmnt. Good job PG.
PG would trade for Jeff Carter and still mess it up somehow.
Yah, he would trade Cole & MaxPac to get him & then put him between Gio & DD
I think the proper thing for Mr. Molson to do would be to refund all tickets for this game. Ido not know how he can charge for this Garbage.Dallas is making complete fools of this team tonight.If not for CP this game would be a major Blowout.
why is Gomez and Darche getting more ice time than Eller and Leblanc ??
(off topic) If there’s one reason why I favour Bulkdogs moving to Laval, it’s for the kids to be exposed to the pressure right away. Make the step to the next level more ‘natural’ in a way.
Blow it up Pierre…as currently put together this team really sucks.
I like what Stevie Y is doing…I see him going for Gigorenko with his first pick this summer. Then buying out Lecavier under the up coming new buy-out in the new CBA.
We need smaller Dmen!
That attack in swarms.
Jersey 3 – Toronto 2, with ten minutes to go.
PG has informed them they have to tank. Not a very hard job for this listless crew.
Look at the coaching crowd behind the Habs bench. What a bunch of dough heads!
PG will soon have a new job at the car wash …
Well, at least the buyer/seller debate is finally settled, and a top five pick is nothing to sneeze at. All trades must be for picks and prospects, then a complete retool this summer, top to bottom. Perfect time for a fresh start.
Really, outside of the DD line, Subban, Gorges, Emelin and Price, every player on the big club roster should be made available this week.
Of course, deep down, we all want to see our Habs in the playoffs. But, seriously, does the makeup of this year’s team merit a miracle run?
Nope. Turn the page.
This team has zero puck retrieval skills. It’s a big reason we suck on powerplays and a big reason the puck is always in our end.
The tank is on and the players know it. With the trading of Gill for prospects management has more or less given up on this season. Any more trades coming??
Les Tankers de Montreal.
Habs were getting manhandled down low on more than one occasion in the offensive zone. We need a player like Chris Stewart down low, especially with the man advantage. A no-nonsense, tough SOB that enjoys hurting people.
Methinks he’s a bit too truculent for this team mgmnt’s liking.
New post Gill strategy to kill penalties, don’t take any.
In dedication to this Habs season I’m going to take up golf!
You’ll have lots of company.
why was Plekanec scratched?
flu, I believe
Trade coming up to Detroit
He didn’t want to have anything to do with a crappy game like this.
Smart if you ask me
His turtleneck had puke on it from the baby.
