Liveblog: Another home-ice suckfest

jm12 0221 stars 02

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 …

    Cunneyworth yelling at the boys on the bench. Bye bye RC

  2. danhabsfan says:

    This team can’t score

  3. twilighthours says:

    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.

  4. danhabsfan says:

    Anyone notice that Georges has not played well since the new contract… coincidence? (and I really like the old Georges)

    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!!!

  6. Soolz says:

    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.

  7. manu07 says:

    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

  8. Renegade says:

    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.

  9. CHicoHab says:

    Lehtonen comes out to cut off the angle on Eller for the stop. Wow, where did he learn that?

    “take your time and hurry up”

  10. habsfan0 says:

    I wonder what Boone will write in “About Last Night?”

    Should be entertaining.

  11. Rad says:

    Looks like Palushaj didn’t get the memo on Fistric.

  12. Captain aHab says:

    Palushaj needs a second play besides go around the net and lose the puck.

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

    Vewy Quiet in here.
    Boone’s doing a Tweety Bird imitation.

  14. FlyingFrenchie says:

    The last time we scored a goal, Buffalo were still roaming the open plains

  15. temekuhabs says:

    Time for the big sell off, get what you can for the UFA’s and make everybody available except: Price, Subban, Cole

  16. The Dude says:

    Rebuild with Rick Nash!

  17. gumper says:

    “The building is emptying fast.” Shame. No one left to boo them off the ice.

  18. EricInStL says:

    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.

  19. Mondou6 says:

    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.

  20. MannyR says:

    I can’t watch this anymore. Joining the wife to watch The Bachelor on my PVR. Maybe there will some action.

  21. EastCoastHab says:

    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

  22. rogieshan says:

    Andrei Kostitsyn is dressed tonight – as Mrs. Doubtfire.

  23. twilighthours says:

    I really won’t miss kostitsyn. Not a single thing about him

  24. Soolz says:

    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

  25. Marc10 says:

    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.

  26. The Gonk says:

    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.

  27. HardHabits says:

    How many times have the Habs been shut-out on home ice this season?

  28. rogieshan says:

    The ghost of Jacques Martin will be speaking in tonight’s post-game press scrum.

    • Clay says:

      Representing the ghost of Habs past, I presume?

      I wonder who will represent the ghost of the Habs future…?

  29. MacHabFan says:

    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.

  30. EnglishHab says:

    What return would Campoli get? I wouldn’t even give up a 7th round pick for him

  31. HabsFansince49 says:

    Can anyone in their right mind watching this debacle tonight not see how Gainey & Gauthier have killed the Canadiens?

  32. The Dude says:

    L’AINTICHAMBRE IS GOING TO BE FUN TONIGHT…

  33. twilighthours says:

    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

  34. Rad says:

    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.

  35. Hoegarden says:

    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.

  36. doug19 says:

    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!

  37. AliHaba says:

    Ribeiro schooling Desharnais

  38. kempie says:

    Cam F. Poli

    Oh yeah, I forgot he’s being “showcased”.

  39. Habfan10912 says:

    Does Molson make his move tonight?

  40. danhabsfan says:

    I say… don;t start Price the rest of the year… then we can see.
    We also may get the 2nd pick that way.

  41. manu07 says:

    Is this the moment where Price skates to the bench and says he will never play a game for this team again…

  42. Habsbill24 says:

    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.

  43. temekuhabs says:

    Last player out of town, turn out the lights… This party is waaaay over

  44. habaholic68NJ says:

    A one line team with three defensemen and an overworked goalie = no dance

    Clay:

    Montreal doesn’t deserve Carey Price!

  46. SUMO says:

    its painful to watch.

  47. habstrinifan says:

    Sorry to bail folks… cant take anymore!

    LL shoulda played more. RC has sealed hs fate… he’s gone too!

  48. Marc10 says:

    Two great chances back to back… No goal. No luck.

  49. Sotxhabsfan says:

    I have a feeling that this game will be the perfect cure for the insomnia I’ve been suffering from lately. Thanks Habs!

  50. habs-fan-84 says:

    lol this will be what? Lehtonen’s 3rd or 4th career shutout against the Habs…?

  51. Soolz says:

    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?

  52. AliHaba says:

    Devils gave the Loafs a point. Thanks a lot.

  53. CHicoHab says:

    Gustavsson lets in a 50 footer that was going wide.Jersey 4-3 in OT. Maybe Carey is not so bad………….

    “take your time and hurry up”

  54. bellcentre hotdog says:

    The 2011/2012 Habs like an Italian cruise ship …

    Sinking slowly.

  55. habsfaninboston says:

    Can’t buy a goal.

  56. The Gonk says:

    Trade everyone but Gomez and Kaberle.

  57. Captain aHab says:

    If the Habs were a horse, he’d be fixing to get shot right now.

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

  58. HabFanSince72 says:

    Cheer up.

    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.

  59. Chuck says:

    Devils win…

  60. habsfan0 says:

    With about 5 minutes to go,fans will start singing:

    OY VEY OY VEY OY VEY OY VEY….

  61. Adidess says:

    Well, there’s a God. Leafs lose in OT

  62. manu07 says:

    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.

  63. nellis13 says:

    Darche has the “A” That pretty much says it all.

  64. Rainrocket16 says:

    Ladies and Gentlemen…Its over, it’s actually been over! Fail for Nail!

  65. EnglishHab says:

    Boone didn’t MaxPac score on sunday against the Devils?

    “Winners never quit, quitters never win”

  66. twilighthours says:

    Am I missing something or didnt mtl score in their last game, a 3-1 loss to nj?

  67. habstrinifan says:

    I am not joking wen I say this… BOONE FOR MVP!

    Imagine having to ‘live-blog’ the rest of the season.

  68. manu07 says:

    Terrible effort all around today. Dallas walked in. Dominated and ended the season for the Habs.

  69. The Gonk says:

    Oh geez, it’s by 3 now. Zero effort.

  70. HabinBurlington says:

    @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.

  71. rogieshan says:

    I keep reading about Kostitsyn being worth a 1st rounder in trade. I guess he does have some of brother Sergei’s genes.

  72. SKHab says:

    Well, I tried and I got to 3-0 and then I couldn’t go on.

    Goodnight and good luck.

  73. cha-cho says:

    Thank god I cancelled RDS!!….I couldnt fathom the thought of paying to watch this kind of hockey!!….free streams are the way to go this year!!….I definitely picked the wrong season to buy my 52”

    Was Markov Made In China??

  74. smiler2729 says:

    They’re not tanking, this is just a bad hockey team…
