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.
Come on guys. Win this one. My godson’s uncle lives in Ontario (not a common thing in Finland) and he has a quite strong opinions about the Habs. He did bring me a nice habs t-shirt, but the things he said about the Habs aren’t suitable for the children…
Lots of Finn’s up in Timmins, and a few more around in other parts. My Great-Grandmother emigrated from Hyvinkaa in the 1920’s
Its time to switch to whiskey, we’ve been drinkin’ beer all night
Interesting, turn to the world series, and my blood pressure drops, i stop swearing uncontrollably, and my wife says I know longer look like George the monkey from Seinfeld.
I love Darche…but for what he is…a solid 3rd/4th liner. This is crazy. I don’t get it. No fault of Darche’s though.
Great! the 3 stooges behind the bench communicating well with each other, but no one talks to the team. Two bench penalties, no coaching, no power play again. It is going to be a long winter!
KIRK,KIRK, where art thou!
The 5 on 3 was big Ian. The fact he left Eller on the bench and threw Darche out their told me all I need to know.
It’s pathetic we can’t even make any passes out of our zone
Grandma may not see so good anymore but she sees good enough to know “the red team stinks”
Jacques Martin is rumoured to be considering another job offer:
“Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”
WATER BOY! FIRST STRING!
Perfect night for Desharnais to step up and he’s almost invisible.
This is the most disoriented the team has looked since Martin took over.
Is Cole still playing into shape – why else would Martin not use him?
The Fail for Nail is on!
They look a little better than in Pittsburgh, but they could hardly look worse, so that’s not saying much. Passes are off the mark, there’s little cohesion, the powerplay is a mess, and the penalties are driving me nuts. Leafs will score again early in the third, and that’ll be it. I don’t think a coaching change will make a difference, but JM had better start polishing his resumé.
Hey,this is Gauthiers fault too,don’t kid yourself!
This continues Jean Beleveau will be looking for a paper bag.
We’re going to get slaughtered Thursday night especially with Darche getting first PP minutes
Something must have happened with Cole. Anyone know. I cannot believe you go out and get a 4 million $ guy and play Darche over him. Absolute bull shit. Anyone know if he had words with the coach. Antichambre suggested he did.
i want to have words with the coach
Full Breezer 4 Life
— HABS INSIDE/OUT R.I.P. —
lol yup, count me in
I want to punch his face off his face
The whole idea of “must be French speaking” to be a GM and/or coach on the Canadiens is retarded. Hire the best one available. If they don’t speak French who the f*uck cares? Run your business in English and let RDS, La Presse figure it out themselves. This is a professional hockey team for f*cks sake, not a public/political venture.
Glad I decided not to watch. Decided last game that I’m not even going to try and watch this sad team with the count behind the bench. Just out of curiosity I went to check the score online and decided to catch afew
The Monster has more big save than Price. This team doesn’t win unless Price plays spectacularly and hes below average so far. IMO.
“It’s not an obsession, It’s a way of life..”
Nothing to be said that hasn’t already been. Darche? Really? That’s our PP answer?
Only silver lining is we’re only one behind with a period to go. I don’t know what happens between periods in dressing rooms, but someone better f#$kin’ stand up and motivate this team. The Leafs aren’t playing well at all. If we play like we care and with a bit of fire, we’ll win this thing no problem. But something needs to be said.
Let’s go guys, win the 3rd and we take the game. Let’s go!
Sal was right about Jacques Martin…
Think it’s time to get FIRE “the count”!! Any good coaches looking for a job?
never mind good coach’s looking for a job , we’d take a bad coach,.sure beats one in a coma
15 goals in one period under 7 games… and 10 of those 15 came in 2 games.
That doesn’t bode well for a comeback.
Why is it this team can never get a natural GOAL SCORER.
WHO WAS THE LAST PLAYER TO SCORE 30 OR MORE GOALS
i remember a few years ago, i used to laugh at my brother ( a senators fan) because of the coach the Senators had.
the coach was boring and emotionless, and kept a talented sens squad from fulfilling their potential.
His name was Jacques Martin.
To many men again and again. This just goes to show how much of a connection there is between the players and the coaching staff.
Haha, looks like Boone had enough …
Is it written in COle’s contract he can’t play power play, will that last sequence end the Darche PP experiment, INQUIRinG MINDS want to know?
Absolutely no clue why Cole isn’t playing more, especially on the PP.
agreed,the guy played 19- 20 minutes per game on average last year in carolina and is on pace to get about 11 tonight.
Cole looks lost in JM system, seems to always be looking around wondering where he should be positioned in the neutral and defensive zones.. Its killing his game..
We need more energy on the 4th line.. ( white ) someone to come off the bench and land 2 or 3 good hits per shift..
Keep forwards off the point on the PP!!!
Its not hard to play defence in your own end as a winger. Its about the same in any system,you cover the point between the defenceman and the net and try to keep everything outside the slot area. I have no idea what JM’s issue is with giving cole such little ice time.
” I love Darche, but …”
Me too, but having Darche on your power play would be like using Engqvist on your fourth line.
This team has no jam whatsoever! And, that buffoon behind the bench couldn’t coax a turd from an incontinent dog’s ass in the depths of winter.
I have to say, I’ve seen a lot of Booth here in Florida. He is a dandy hockey player.
Put Cole on the freaking PP instead of Darche!
He won’t score a goal this year if he doesn’t get any ice-time.
25 before 14
…Gustafson comes out to start the second instead of Reimer
…let’s one-up-them, …I saw JM slithering into the tunnel …and hoping for a more than pleasant surprise of seeing Kirk Muller leading Our Team to the bench to start the third ?
Habitant means PASSIONATE HOCKEY
I hear rumbling in the distance…
thats my guitar..
I have to think that win or lose tonight we are watching Martin’s last game behind the bench.
2 too many men on the ice penalties!
The one Center (Eller) that has generated any offence tonight banished from the anemic power play.
This has to end.
Darche on power play instead of Cole–totally ridiculous!!
Mr. Boone said it recently, and I’ll paraphrase but it bears repeating: It may be too early to really panic, but Geoff Molson will be on the phone first thing Monday morning with some questions and Mr. Gauthier & Mr. Martin should start thinking of what their answers might be.
I hate Darche but…… he can’t make most teams in the league cause he’s not good enough. But he’s good enough for JM the master of all things such as choking with the Sens, destroying the Panthers and now scribbling on a piece of paper. Maybe we need to put an accent on the E in Cole so JM thinks he’s French.
What a collection of morons RDS has assembled this year.
No one can outdo the CBC.
THE CBC HAS THEM BEAT
For the love of God, bring us back the Expos!!!!
I gotta tell ya, I haven’t been this frustrated with the Canadiens…EVER!!!
Please change the coach. Any team that takes too many men penalties at a greater percentage than they score on the power play needs a serious wake up call. Hell, I’d rather have Ron Wilson as a coach…am I NUTS!?!?
I figure if they cant care why should I? A few more losses like this and no changes and I’ll look for something else to do saturday nights
EDIT – just missed but I’ll take the ’69 …
I’ll take the 69 to;)
What’s with Pleks? He looked like he was out for some public skating on that breakaway.
It’s like his head isn’t in it at all.
Are they trying to fire the coach like Philly did a couple of years back?
The effort is awful by certain players here. They grab momentum then proceed to pass like AHL’ers and miss second chances.
Shit is going to hit the fan if they lose, so wake up
Martin should be fired for the PP alone. Why do Darche and Desharnais get so much PP time? Where’s Eller or Cole? Why even get Cole if he’s going to be used like this?
you speak da francais????????????????
This a way beyond pathetic now! Way beyond!
“Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing”
Martin are you Fuc&ed in the head??
I am sooo close to jumping on the Fire Martin bandwagon.
Can we play the rest of the season in Winnipeg please
Darche must have photos of JM at Chez Paré. FFS.
I still can’t understand why they didn’t name Darche captain!
why is Darche on teh PP??? Please, someone explain this to me.
They need a smoke and a beer during the break.
JM – Muller = 0 for ……………………………
agree thet are missing him huge
…the MuppleWeeds are playin’ like …well, The MuppleWeeds
…and the score is 3-2 MuppleWeeds
…kinda says it all, huh ?
Please find someone who can win a draw cleanly.
No Darche on the first wave? That’s the last straw.
Time to put the cork back in the popgun.
Is that ref crazy ,he just called the leafs for one…..
Bad call, but I’ll take it
jM better put Cole out on this power play
Please no momentum killing PP… please…
Duno, we play better on 5v5 than PP, i think getting a PP is only going to reduce our chances of scoring
We’ve actually been carrying the play the last five minutes. Time to finally get one on the PP!
Watch out for the Toronto SH goal
More Power Play Futility brought to you by JM … where is Darche …
Another 2 minutes of frustration.
Max-Pac just hasnt been the same since his injury…
Eric Cole… Paging Eric Cole. Please report to the game.
Cole has been the best player ont he ice. What game have you been watching?
Will pleks ever score a goal again?
this is a bad team beating a terrible one
can’t buy a goal cause the habs dont fight for second chances
They do…they try…but they just don’t have the size/strength to overpower the big D-men.
Desharnais line is terrrrrrrrrible tonight.
I am coming to believe that JM is single handedly making a tanking inevitable!
Maybe JM & PG should both go. Try something different….open up a Fishing Lodge together
can’t score in the dirty areas. Too small, too soft.
What?? How do we not score when the passes are only two feet off the ice??
holy crap, is that Moen or Lemieux??
