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 …
Man, it’s starting to look like we’ll have to start trading draft picks pretty soon in order to get into the playoffs.
—Hope Springs Eternal—
lol…If only we could be sure that won’t happen.
Atta boy, keep up the spirits!
I wonder if the Stars announcers realize they’re playing the canadiens, not the red Wings.
“It’s not an obsession, It’s a way of life..”
Cunneyworth yelling at the boys on the bench. Bye bye RC
This team can’t score
We’ve all known for a while that this team was missing the show this year.
But this game, for me, has made it really hit home. No playoffs this yr. definitely not. Long wait until October.
More interested/amazed by the person calling Pronger “arguably the best defencemen to ever play in the NHL”
Anyone notice that Georges has not played well since the new contract… coincidence? (and I really like the old Georges)
I’m partial to Gorges.
WELL i HOPE THAT EVERYONE ON HERE IS HAPPY, THERE IS AN OLD SAYING CAREFULLY WHAT YOU WISH FOR, BECAUSE YOU MIGHT GET IT. SO FOR ALL THE SO CALLED FANS/GM”S ON THIS SITE THAT WANTED MARTIN FIRED, THERE YOU GO WHEN MARTIN WAS FIRED WE HAD 33 POINTS IN 32 TO GAMES AND NOW WE HAVE 25 IN 29 GAMES, IT WAS NOT BROKEN ON DECEMBER 17 BUT ON FEB 21 IT DOES NOT EVEN START, ENJOY THE GOLF SEASON ALL MAYBE NEXT YEAR EVERYONE MIGHT BE MORE POSTIVE TOWARDS THE TEAM AND NOT SO NEGATIVE!!!
3-1 last game at home. 3-0 loss again at home tonight. Give me a few minutes to find something positive about that.
“take your time and hurry up”
This team needs to package Plek and something decent for a real #1 center…DD is great as #2 and then send something to LA and get Dustin Brown.. This team needs balls and grit.
Just some thoughts Colombus is terrible and have 2 big names in Nash and carter. Along with Umburger and Mason was great at one point. In my opinion if you can’t win with those guys. Don’t get into a big contract and think a miracle will happen No Nash. No carter to Habs. Pleaseeeeee
Plekanec won’t and shouldn’t be traded. Neither will Gionta. Man, the trolls come out when the team is playing badly. If everyone here collectively had their way, Montreal would be dressing draft picks for the next game.
Who let P.G’s nephew post on here?
Question: What year was it last when the Habs were out of the play offs?
06-07 I think; Souray I believe broke the PP goals for a defensman record that year.
Question…When was the last time they won the Stanley cup?
Draft picks would show more heart that kostitsyn and more finish than gomez
Lehtonen comes out to cut off the angle on Eller for the stop. Wow, where did he learn that?
I wonder what Boone will write in “About Last Night?”
Should be entertaining.
Looks like Palushaj didn’t get the memo on Fistric.
Palushaj needs a second play besides go around the net and lose the puck.
McGuire for GM!
Roy for Coach!
Sh*t for Brains!
I thought Gomez patented that play anyway…

Priceless! Thanks for the laugh.
Vewy Quiet in here.
Boone’s doing a Tweety Bird imitation.
The last time we scored a goal, Buffalo were still roaming the open plains
Time for the big sell off, get what you can for the UFA’s and make everybody available except: Price, Subban, Cole
Who wants to buy anything from the Salvation Army?
Rebuild with Rick Nash!
Go from one rotten team to another ?
“The building is emptying fast.” Shame. No one left to boo them off the ice.
Hal Gill tonight, 1 assist on SK goal, +1, 10 minutes played after 2 periods. Good on Gill.
For a playoff team he is worth a #2, Chicago could have used him. I still think we could have gotten more.
I don’t care if PG is secretly the top GM genius in the NHL, or if he goes on to build a dynasty somewhere, he absolutely has to be fired for this roster.
At no point this season did he ice an NHL level defence. For letting too many walk, and relying on a questionable Markov…I agree with you. Doesn’t matter the good things he’s done, the overall grade is a D-.
For every good thing, he has done five bad things.
I can’t watch this anymore. Joining the wife to watch The Bachelor on my PVR. Maybe there will some action.
On the show or for you?
The Bachelor is very similar to the Habs game…It’s painful to watch, not much happens for 2+ hours, and at the end there is bitter crying.
Do you think Palush is up and playing this game for the scouts? An add on for a bigger deal?
It must be because he is not doing much, bring up the grandson, it might get the crowd going at least
Andrei Kostitsyn is dressed tonight – as Mrs. Doubtfire.
I really won’t miss kostitsyn. Not a single thing about him
Can’t we revoke his visa? Isn’t he impersonating a professional hockey player?
Please, Please Please get rid of the following:
GM – Gauthier.
Players – Campoli, Kaberle, AK, Plekanec, Gomez, Pulash*t and either Weber or Diaz (they’re the same player)… Make a package for something…a first line center and let’s build around with the draft. Let’s be honest folks – the only thing promising coming up is Tinordi and Beaulieu and they’re 2-3 years away. This team sucks to watch. It infuriates me. Last year I would watch and even when we were down I would know they would come back ..this year – I just hope they score. BRUTAL
Morgan Ellis is having a wonderful season (split between two teams)
How easy was this for Dallas?
They show up, chip it in behind MTL’s tiny D, cycle and shoot, pick up two points, go home.
I used to remember when we would win at will. Not how, but by how much. Boy are we paying for that overtime streak from the 1993 Cup run. The Gods are aligned against us. Damn you to hell.
How many times have the Habs been shut-out on home ice this season?
feels like 35 games. Oh wait, we did smoke the Red Wings didn’t we?
The ghost of Jacques Martin will be speaking in tonight’s post-game press scrum.
Representing the ghost of Habs past, I presume?
I wonder who will represent the ghost of the Habs future…?
Too many are afraid to get hurt, for fear it will cut their golf season short.
Some of the line combos make no sense – a waste of Eller, LeBlanc, and others; stop playing Gomez, Campoli, Diaz and send White back to Hamilton.
The END is near.
What return would Campoli get? I wouldn’t even give up a 7th round pick for him
“Winners never quit, quitters never win”
Can anyone in their right mind watching this debacle tonight not see how Gainey & Gauthier have killed the Canadiens?
L’AINTICHAMBRE IS GOING TO BE FUN TONIGHT…
IF YOU CAN UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY ARE SAYING.
Can’t expect this team, missing such key players, to compete.
But maybe there should still be a gutting at season’s end. RC and PG
Ya ,we’re missing Crosby,lol
Compare the way the Habs defensemen allow opposing forwards to stand around their goaltender looking for a loose puck to the way that Pardy and Fistric manhandled the Hab forwards in the 2nd Period.
I saw exactly what you’re talking about…
No point in setting my alarm clock to 5 or 6am to listen to this on web radio. My decision to spend a couple of months in SE Asia was spot on.
Gotta feel sorry for those folks paying big bucks for this.
Hoegarden in Manila.
Three things to be happy about.
1. Toronto gets a point tonight.
2. Winnipeg gets at least a point.
3. Montreal is still ahead of Carolina in their playoff run!
And just 21 games left.
Ribeiro schooling Desharnais
Cam F. Poli
Oh yeah, I forgot he’s being “showcased”.
Safe to say the stock on most of the guys being “showcased” is falling.
Does Molson make his move tonight?
I say… don;t start Price the rest of the year… then we can see.
We also may get the 2nd pick that way.
Is this the moment where Price skates to the bench and says he will never play a game for this team again…
Could we blame him?
I could only WISH!
Mailing in the next 21 games. No real reason to waste time watching this putrid bunch. My condolences to the fans who have tickets for the rest of the season. No pride in being a Habs fan these days, embarrassing really. How inept they have become. Clueless, listless, heartless and for most, without NHL level skill. This team was bad out of the gate and they have gotten worse as the season progressed. With this loss they will be 24-37. When has a Habs team been that bad? They should break out a clown suit third jersey to wear the rest of the year because they are clowns, my friends, led by the biggest clown of all Mr. Gauthier, who has managed to destroy 100 years of glory and tradition in a single season.
Careful, there are still many HIO posters who are convinced that Gauthier has done a good job.
Last player out of town, turn out the lights… This party is waaaay over
A one line team with three defensemen and an overworked goalie = no dance
*Listen to my instrumental tribute entitled “Habs at War” at http://web.me.com/ptolias/Music/OtherOriginalMusic.html
Montreal doesn’t deserve Carey Price!
its painful to watch.
Sorry to bail folks… cant take anymore!
LL shoulda played more. RC has sealed hs fate… he’s gone too!
Two great chances back to back… No goal. No luck.
I have a feeling that this game will be the perfect cure for the insomnia I’ve been suffering from lately. Thanks Habs!
lol this will be what? Lehtonen’s 3rd or 4th career shutout against the Habs…?
Hey it’s the last 8 minutes of a game. Time to pour it on and still lose. Why can’t they ever play desperate at the start?
Devils gave the Loafs a point. Thanks a lot.
No the Leafs earned a point.. we had our chance.
Gustavsson lets in a 50 footer that was going wide.Jersey 4-3 in OT. Maybe Carey is not so bad………….
Maybe not. But the Habs are worse.
The 2011/2012 Habs like an Italian cruise ship …
Can’t buy a goal.
Trade everyone but Gomez and Kaberle.
If the Habs were a horse, he’d be fixing to get shot right now.
Leafs lost in OT in heartbreaking fashion. A floater going wide of the net is tipped into his own net by Gustavson.
Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.
With about 5 minutes to go,fans will start singing:
OY VEY OY VEY OY VEY OY VEY….
i’m gonna tell Moe on you.
Well, there’s a God. Leafs lose in OT
Jersey won. Almost leaped off my sofa. Leafs lose. Leafs lose. I guess the rest of the season for me is watching the leads crumble.
Darche has the “A” That pretty much says it all.
It does your right!
Ladies and Gentlemen…Its over, it’s actually been over! Fail for Nail!
Boone didn’t MaxPac score on sunday against the Devils?
Am I missing something or didnt mtl score in their last game, a 3-1 loss to nj?
I am not joking wen I say this… BOONE FOR MVP!
Imagine having to ‘live-blog’ the rest of the season.
Terrible effort all around today. Dallas walked in. Dominated and ended the season for the Habs.
Oh geez, it’s by 3 now. Zero effort.
@Anti JM, I understand the philosophy of wanting to retool, to make changes. What i can’t understand is the joy you take in the team doing poorly. I find that bizarre.
This is the thing. I’m a tanker but I’m not happy about it
Yes, unintentional tanking is always best.
I keep reading about Kostitsyn being worth a 1st rounder in trade. I guess he does have some of brother Sergei’s genes.
Well, I tried and I got to 3-0 and then I couldn’t go on.
Goodnight and good luck.
