Liveblog: Barnburner at the Bell, and another L

Crazy game.
The Canadiens led 1-0, 2-1 and 4-3.
This is a team that can’t stand prosperity.

Mikhail Grabovski wins it in OT.

    Was that puck control?

  2. NorthernHab says:

    Bad passes by Gionta.

  3. Chuck says:

    This team leads the league in the ‘passing to no one’ stat.

  4. LTHF says:

    Well Martin finally made use of his $18M man, Cole, in the penalty box twice for the two too many men on the ice penalties.And on the bench for the pp

  5. Un Canadien errant says:

    How tall is David Amber? He towers over Brian Gionta wearing skates.

    How about it NHL? No fighting, just hockey?

  6. Captain aHab says:

    Count me amongst the “too may line changes cause too many men on the ice penalties” crowd. It’s ridiculous. JM must be the only coach who breaks up lines that work.

  7. ajpursell says:

    The next next question is who replaces JM.

  8. DOAHABS says:

    What’s the ‘System’ needed to get rid of the cigar store indian

  9. NorthernHab says:

    We never make it easy on ourselves……

  10. topher5468 says:

    Maybe like football, we can choose to not accept penalties, They’re just a waste of 2 minutes, 2 minutes we could use to maybe score a goal

  11. zozotheclown says:

    Hey, if we lose this, are we last? Winnipeg is winning by a bunch right now…

  12. 24 Cups says:

    AK46 is for sale on that PP

  13. avatar_58 says:

    Going to be deep trouble if they lose this. I don’t really care about “effort” or whatever silly positive you find from this. If they lose I want changes either in management or on the ice.

    Win and you have a longer leash Martin

  14. DEANDALLEY says:

    Please God strike Martin with a bolt of lighting tonight!

    “Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing”

  15. Habbu says:

    The only question left….does JM survive the month?

  16. Propwash says:

    PP system needs an overhaul.


  17. zozotheclown says:

    That right there might be why AK misses out on PP time

  18. Habitant in Surrey says:

    …We will make The Monstrousity look like Jacques Plante tonight …bet ya ?

    Habitant means PASSIONATE HOCKEY

  19. Tharsis says:

    Man…this is rediculous, get pleks off the point, get Darche off the bloody first wave…

    Fate leads the willing, and drags along the reluctant.

  20. scavanau says:

    Hey Pleks, how about a pass with some zip? Or even some intent?

  21. DOAHABS says:

    Why can’t Pk hit gustafson in the melon,like he does with carey

  22. AK_PK_Usay says:

    And darche is back on PP, YAYYY… ok, i know “eyeonthe prize said to be patient” BUT I WANT JM FIRED

  23. Habitant in Surrey says:

    …We will make The Monster look like Jacques Plante tonight …bet ya ?

    Habitant means PASSIONATE HOCKEY

  24. Sheldon says:

    Darche? Goddamnit, why the hell did you get Cole?

  25. Sheldon says:

    This team kinda sucks in a very suckful way!

  26. 1010 says:

    Yessssss. A PP. Time to throw Darche back out their.
    And make sure Eller doesn’t get a smell JM.

    go habs…

  27. Matt. says:

    the canadiens are a mess

  28. danhabsfan says:

    Please don’t put Darche out there for the PP
    … give me Cole

  29. kempie says:

    Member last year when they took a TMMOTI penalty? And then while they were killing it, they took another TMMOTI penalty? Yeah. That was awesome too.

  30. Habbu says:

    Nice, the Leafs let us touch the puck….finally

  31. smiler2729 says:

    Plekanec sucks

    “If the Bruins played the Taliban, I’d root for the Taliban”

  32. zozotheclown says:

    HAVE to generate something this PP, no more futility

  33. Man when is Markov coming back… PP has been horrendous.

    Sigh.. another PP. Cmon Habs.

  34. Diaz just can’t complete a single play. Horrible tonight.

  35. Jdub1985 says:

    Down a goal and playing the TRAP


  36. immortalhab says:

    Carbo would have lost his job by now … I hate to see em lose but we’ll have to get quashed before anything changes. Gainey put the organization on geologic time.

  37. danhabsfan says:

    Somebody remind me… ” we’re a puck possession team” right?

  38. Habitant in Surrey says:

    …so far, in this first few games of the season, the most memorable ‘defining moment’ is tonight and Our Teams non-pushback on Subban by Rosehill
    …I hate JM’s hockey

    Habitant means PASSIONATE HOCKEY

  39. BKAK72 says:

    Ron Wilson looks brilliant b/c Jacques Martin is the only other coach in this league that’s proven he can not win.


  40. Sheldon says:

    How ironic that the Count can’t count!

  41. AK_PK_Usay says:


  42. PureGuava says:

    Eller has assists on both goals and he hasn’t been out in ages!! Great heads up coaching.

    “Of course I’m crazy, but that doesn’t mean I’m wrong.”

  43. Jdub1985 says:

    Cole saying to JM … FU, I’m better then your boy Darche

  44. simoa says:

    I’m all out of vomit

  45. darcy1 says:

    Boone: ” Can someone remind me what Andreas Engqvist is doing on this team? There HS TO BE someone better in Hamilton … or on the waiver wire”….

    ANSWER: Blair Betts lol

    The Bruins are the “Starley Cup Champians”?? I’m cool with that.

  46. scavanau says:

    Cole makes me vomit again

  47. BKAK72 says:

    2007/08 the HABS finished first in the E. Conference. Since that season which team is better in 2011/12, HABS or LEAFS.

    This organization has been plagues w. horrible management for far too long!


  48. duffy says:

    The coach has completely lost this team,time for a change.

  49. stephen says:

    Glad RDS is giving Eller the recognition he deserves. He’s been one of the very few bright spots this season.

  50. Mullie01 says:

    A professional team should never be this disorganized. It’s a sign that the players do not buy in. A new voice is needed. JM had some success, but the team just isn’t built well.

  51. simoa says:

    Wish we had Gomez out there for one of his big goals….

  52. Habitant in Surrey says:

    …the Too Many Men are caused by Our Players being disjointed by the Too Many Line-changes of JM

    Habitant means PASSIONATE HOCKEY

  53. kempie says:

    OMFG. Does JM suck yet?

  54. floatingineather says:

    Phuq you JM

  55. DadidolizedDougHarvey says:

    Another too many men? okay I’ve sat thru too many of these…time to fire martin…

  56. AK_PK_Usay says:


  57. avatar_58 says:

    Un-be-f…..STOP ADJUSTING LINES. Obviously no one has any clue when to get on or off

  58. zozotheclown says:

    I can’t even blame the refs, we’re just playing stupid

  59. BKAK72 says:

    Two bench minors already. Nice work JM & Co.


  60. DEANDALLEY says:

    This is getting unbearable!

    “Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing”

  61. Danno says:

    Too many men with a notepad


    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  62. twilighthours says:

    Can we blame JM for this too-many-men? F**** horrendous.

  63. topher5468 says:

    Thats efin it, Fire this jerk off between periods

    “It’s not an obsession, It’s a way of life..”


    No other team goes through this as much as Montreal.

  65. Jdub1985 says:

    You know what … even if we win that puke behind the bench will be fired

  66. habsfaninboston says:

    WTF is with this too many men. Same shite as last year.

  67. Mullie01 says:

    Can you fire a coach during the game? Bench him??

  68. DOAHABS says:

    Hey great coaching…………….

  69. JayBee says:

    Jacques….your time has come

  70. zozotheclown says:

    And Plecks calls himself a playmaker? Wtf was that pass?

  71. duffy says:

    This team is a shoe in for the first draft pick next June.JUST BRUTAL”””

  72. scavanau says:

    BRB. Gone to put fresh paper bag on my head…

  73. habman4evr says:

    So who was driving the bus last year, JM or Muller? Looks to me like they have no direction now that captain Kirk is gone.

  74. gmd says:

    I would pull Price as he’s likely to get hurt the way things are going.

  75. Habbu says:

    Getting mauled; and they skate away….maybe Carey can throw em and be our designated goon
