Habs vs Leafs

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.

    Somebody please offer me/us an explanation why J. Martin must remain the coach for this team? If your answer is b/c he speaks French then then pretty much sums it all up.


  2. DOAHABS says:

    Hey ,not so bad the Molson’s had energy efficient bulbs installed in the goal lamps ,.Should save then a fortune this year alone, that and not having to have any lights on past march….
    Yea Carey at least you tried,…….hey you know what would be nice about now,……a round of ole ole

  3. Habitant in Surrey says:

    …fire JM ?
    …Carey for Luongo ?
    …I don’t know …I’m just goin’ to go get wasted …or play chess with My Son …whatever
    …it sucks

    Habitant means PASSIONATE HOCKEY

    • habbernack says:

      Luongo is the most over rated goalie in hockey. He spends all his time on his stomach

      ability is what you’re capable of doing.
      attitude determines how you do it

  4. AK_PK_Usay says:

    Why off why is Cole there when he’s been brutal tonight? Why not DD with max pac?

  5. avatar_58 says:

    Good. Now fire martin and make some trades. If not I’m not watching the next game

  6. PureGuava says:

    By bye Jack Martin.

  8. JayBee says:

    How fitting.

    **** this team.

  9. zozotheclown says:

    Again terrible d-zone play, Grabo gets the HON dominating down low….

  10. habsfaninboston says:

    That was pathetic!

  11. NLhabsfan says:

    See ya guys!!!

  12. Habbu says:

    We seem to have a hard time getting a shot on goal whereas the Leafs walk right in

  13. Jdub1985 says:

    Price is scrambler
    he cant handle breakaways
    habs need to win this in 5 mins

  14. habsolutely says:

    and to think, we could’ve had Brule instead of Price.

  15. zozotheclown says:

    Fun game to watch, our forwards are doing ok but the defensive play has been bad yet again.

  16. Bill says:

    Superstar looking goal Grabovski … and it’s officially ugly. Listen to the crowd.

  17. NLhabsfan says:

    Yea laff refs tied 4-4 with us.

  18. DEANDALLEY says:

    IF this goes to a shootout blast every shot high glove side on the Monster …

  19. Jdub1985 says:

    With 2 mins left JM plays NOT TO LOSE

    He plays for a point, he plays for his point, he plays for language


  20. DOAHABS says:

    Hey we tied the maple leafs ,how good is that….could be the first semi-win at home

  21. Habitant in Surrey says:

    …Carey just saved Jacques ass !

    Habitant means PASSIONATE HOCKEY

  22. HFX-HabFan says:

    It’s pretty awesome to watch Grabovski get manhandled.

  23. C-Sword says:

    Eller should be tonight’s 1st star if they win, the kid is impressive

  24. Habbu says:

    The Leafs continue to attack our net with little or no resistance

  25. Bill says:

    Carey’s stats tonight (and in general) are pretty brutal, but he’s made some great saves … the D is beyond shit.

  26. JayBee says:

    Habs playing for 1 point. Leafs playing for 2.

  27. Habitant in Surrey says:

    …Habs lose ? …FIRE Jacques Martin !!!
    …2 points for Our Habs tonight ? …give JM a 5 year extension !
    …what’ll it be ? 🙂

    Habitant means PASSIONATE HOCKEY

  28. Price has been so good in the third period. We need him to be good.

    Eller is winning me over.

  29. DOAHABS says:

    28-21 SOG for Montreal,…tells the tale of the mighty C

  30. NorthernHab says:

    Cole will score the winner

  31. stephen says:

    Painfully obvious how easily Eller could permanently replace Gomez.

  32. Taipei 101 says:

    I don’t want them to win this game. I want Martin gone. We will never beat the Bruins or Flyers playing wait and see hockey. NEVER.

    • Stev.R says:

      If you think the way the team has been playing is the way Martin has been telling them to play, then you’re nuts. We all know the way JM wants his team to play, and they aren’t doing it. Expect this team to get more controlled as the season goes on.

  33. HFX-HabFan says:

    Lars Eller. The upside on this kid is huge.

  34. Remi says:

    WOW Eller is fearless hahaha…gotta love him.

  35. Lars Eller is excellent tonight.

  36. DEANDALLEY says:

    Why can’t Cole score one of thoses timely goals like he has done on the Habs so many times?

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

  37. habsolutely says:

    why even bother having refs? what a joke.

  38. JayBee says:


    Expect that line to be broken up…it’s the best line tonight.

  39. scavanau says:

    Eric Cole… vomit

  40. NorthernHab says:

    I used to watch the game and have a beer or two. This year, I usually have 6 or 8. Maybe if this play keeps up for the rest of the year, I might have to break out the old bong. 😛

  41. C_exacte says:

    Carey Price’s crease is like Occupy Wall Street. That answers what the Leafs were shopping for in Downtown Montreal, tents!!

  42. DOAHABS says:

    see what happens when the rsoles sing ….& the refs don’t review

  43. Stev.R says:

    for the record, The Green Men phenomena is completely ripped off from Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia. Vancouver is a bunch of unoriginal dickheads

  44. Taipei 101 says:

    This thing dead?

  45. higginrs says:

    Eller is a BEAST! He’s making it happen every shift. Love this guy 🙂

  46. Habitant in Surrey says:

    …always drama …as it should be

    Habitant means PASSIONATE HOCKEY

  47. DEANDALLEY says:

    Shades of 2009/10 for Price!

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

  48. immortalhab says:

    Sure hope this doesn’t go to SO. May as well play rock, paper, scissors.

  49. Cam_1 says:

    What can I say..when you suck you suck !!! Long term wise the best thing that can happen is for this team to lose tonight..I am serious..they better lose…so Molson will open their eyes…cuz if they win..all will be fine in their eyes..which could be nothing further from the truth…win or lose tonight..this team sucks big time…so lets lose tonight..and Molson…fire some F’ing asses…now ..don’t wait no longer..uh it’s early…BS it’s early…it was too late two years…now is the time softies both..and I mean BOTH GUATHIER AND MARTIN…NOW ..TONIGHT…ASAP OK !!!! DO IT ..ENOUGH IS ENOUGH !!!

    PS…IF WE WIN…WE STILL SUCK !!!!!!!!!!

  50. Mavid says:

    That is absolute garbage…how is it that everyone saw the puck hit the netting except the refs…how? I am so friggen pissed right now…

    second place is just the first loser

  51. Sheldon says:

    Time to start double shifting Darche!

  52. Jdub1985 says:

    If JM cant win this in regulation

    AXE HIM!!!!!!!!!!

  53. Sheldon says:

    They might as well play with four forwards. The D just bites!

  54. Matt. says:

    the canadiens are lucky to be in this
    how many posts for the leafs? five?
    and the leafs starter is hurt, the monster sucks

  55. HabinBurlington says:

    How can Moen get called for a penalty then plex skates with no stick blatantly tripped in front of refs, this league is shit

  56. AK_PK_Usay says:

    Emelin is looking better every game, who knew he had that kind of acceleration?

  57. Chuck says:

    How do FOUR officials on the ice not notice that the puck is out of play?!

  58. NorthernHab says:

    Time for 2 more goals

  59. Captain aHab says:

    Good feeling gone.

  60. NLhabsfan says:

    Just love the refs in this game.

  61. Chuck says:

    Man, the Habs got hosed on that one.

  62. JayBee says:

    can’t hold a lead to save their lives. A Hab 1 goal lead is like a 2 goal deficit.

    “Crash the net, bother their goalie…they will not do anything” <- that's how you beat the Habs.

  63. HabinBurlington says:

    F^ck the refs in this league

  64. scavanau says:

    Who forgave Gorges?

  65. zozotheclown says:

    Puck went out… wow… crashing the net works though, we should try it

    Stop the insanity!


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

  68. Captain aHab says:

    Any doubt right now who our number 1 C is? That trade of Halak looks pretty goodright now.

  69. scavanau says:

    Trip the guy with no stick and they can’t make the call?

  70. Bill says:

    Really hope they hang on to this but I DON’T want to see any “lead protection” hockey …

  71. habsolutely says:

    pretty clear who the refs are rooting for.
