    im surprised gomez didn’t peel back at the blueline and look for someone to pass to then just dump it in the corner

    go habs go

  2. temekuhabs says:

    Like that analogy of our season:Kostitsyn’s stick

  3. Muckbringer says:

    so now we have a coach who gives chances in a so to the suckiest players of the game for a little redemption. i see why he does it. the season is a loss and why not show why it is?

    as far as suck goes….

    On the bright side ,we didn’t help the leafs any.

  5. RiverviewCanadien says:

    Seriously though, only 1 Pen scored, and it was Malkin.

    What do the Habs have that compares? Nothing, they are already down 1.

    I am baffled that Cole was not a shooter, nor Bourque. Kostitsyn does not a surprise me, but for crying out loud check your stick before you shoot.

    Take Gill’s A and put it on Cole.

  6. mb says:

    What? No one blaming the goalie yet?

    On a serious note… No, nevermind, I don’t even know what to say. Gomez. FFS.

    What in the world was RC thinking? Can anyone tell me?

  7. j2w4habs25 says:

    what a waste of a evening – i have tomorrow planned to watch the habs.

    Carey Price #31

  8. BLACK ICE says:

    I tuned in on the game at the start of the turd and those two goals on BOOOOdaj were horrible. And people were bashing Price the last game …

  9. Budaj deserves to have another start tomorrow night against the Leafs. Another days rest will help Price get his mojo back. Habs needs to make changes soon. There is something not right with this team. Subban was benched for a while during 2nd period for arguing with his coach Ladoucer for being responsible for short handed goal.

  10. smiler2729 says:

    …And if Gomez had scored, what clever comments would you all have had?

    Was Rene Bourque playing tonight??

    “take your time and hurry up”

  12. dallyd31 says:

    Another blown lead…and now 1-7 in shootouts.

    We would ctually be in a decent position if:

    a) the powerplay was at least average
    b) we didn’t always blow 3rd period leads

    shame…fix those 2 things and we would be at least middle of the pack

  13. Sharks9 says:

    A screw up on the Canadiens site “Numbers Game” for tonight.

    5 – Number of teams against whom Peter Budaj has yet to register a win in the NHL, finally scratching the Penguins off that list on Friday night at the Consol Energy Center.

    I guess they thought we couldn’t blow that lead…

    25 before 14

    Michel Bergeron’s like an old gossipy woman…

    Tell me again why we’re better than the Leafs? In case I get asked at the game tomorrow night.

  16. Chuck says:

    The perfect representation of the Habs’s season: Kostitsyn’s stick.

  17. duffy says:

    Cunnyworth should be fired for that move alone.

  18. habs-hampton says:

    RC was looking up and down the bench like “is there ANYBODY here who can score on a shootout???”, and then wrote down the 1st 3 names he saw.

  19. LA Loyalist says:

    remember in Apocalipstick now “The horror, the horror…”

    Did RC show Gomez a picture of a goalie and hockey net before he went out there? Did he point? What?

    RC using Gomez in a shootout is going to become the symbol of this train-wreck season.

    Can’t wait for the presser. Do you think anyone will dare ask RC about his shoot out choices?

  20. savethepuck says:

    This team is making me feel like an ex girlfriend I used to have. She’d give me a couple days of happiness and hope for things to be better, then she’d make my life miserable for 5 days. Why did this team sit back and let Pitt take it to them in the third? I thought they only did that under JM ffs. Why are they blowing so many leads? Getting 2 pts with Pitt getting none would of been huge tonight. Guess I’ll try to stay positive but this was very depressing.

  21. viper says:

    so sad so mad so goodnight

  22. JF says:

    Thanks, P.K. Is that the fifth or the sixth game you’ve cost us?

  23. Stev.R says:

    Anyone know the statistic of how many games we’ve lost when we led after two? What about how many games we’ve lost after leading.

  24. MTLCANADIENS says:

    this is the way our season is folks… as much as i hate watching the habs lose game in and game out, i think our season is finished

    had a slim chance of thinking playoffs but noo moree

  25. CHicoHab says:

    I think SWIFFER I mean Gomez was off side on that attempt??

    “take your time and hurry up”

  26. LA Loyalist says:

    Are you freaking serious? Any slack I was cutting Cunnyworth in my head due to his rotten situation is gone.

    Using Gomez on a shoot out is like using a tricycle in an F1 race.

    And we get a loser point that might cost us a high draft pick?

    Why could we have not declined this game, like you can decline a penalty in football?

    • mount royal says:

      Cunneyworth just bought his ticket out of town. Up two goals and playing not to lose…dumping and sawtting at the puck throughout the third period..using one of the worst puckhandlers and skaters, Moen, constantly throughout a 4 on 4…using someone who has not scored a goal in over 50 games on a shooutout!! You are telling your best players that you have no confidence in them. They will return the favour.

  27. piter says:

    AAhhhh, I get it. Cunny didn’t want to win the game. I guess the tank IS in.

  28. Nina76 says:

    Very poor choice for the shootout…….STUPID ……NO ELLER NO COLE NO PAC…..I’m not a coach but good Lord that was not hard to figure out who to put in for the shootout………..those guys put in for the shootout could not fight their way out of a wet paper bag………..STUPID!!!STUPID!!!

  29. Habbu says:

    And that folks is why he gets the BIG bucks…….I just wanna go to sleep wake up and the season be over……..the whole season has been like watching the sinking of the Titanic in super slo-mo

  30. Adidess says:

    I just laughed. Didn’t break anything around here. That’s a good sign. Think I am getting comfortable with the idea of a high draft pick!

    • Habby says:

      You know what? I did the exact same. This was almost expected. It hurts less if you think that in June we’ll have a Jonathan Toews on our team. Or Bobby Ryan. Or Malkin. Or any top 5 player who lives up to their potential.

      The drive for 25 is alive!…Next year

  31. BKAK72 says:

    This one is for the Quebecois media:

    You really missed the target on Randy Cunneyworth. Who cares that he can’t communicate with you en Francais. The guy obviously is illiterate in the English language as well, after all how has he not read the numerous articles and statistics (written in English) that SCOTT GOMEZ HAS NOT SCORED A !@#$% GOAL IN 12 MONTHS!!!

    Randy Cunneyworth is !@#$% IDIOT!!!

    – HABS INSIDE/OUT R.I.P. –

  32. immortalhab says:

    Wonder if Cammy is missing the Habs tonight.

  33. solomio says:

    WE’LL SOON BE OUT OF OUR MISERY

    “I figure PG has one or 2 moves left to bring the Habs that extra step closer to perhaps being the best in the league.” – Einstein

  34. LL says:

    LMAO Gomez. Cunneyworth also wants to Fail for Nail!

  35. Clay says:

    The real interest that this season holds for me is whether Gomez will actually go a complete calendar year without a goal. when did dhe score his last one again?

    I am starting to lose faith in our coach…what a boneheaded move to ask Gomez to score in a shootout.

  36. manu07 says:

    Fell apart again…the only thing that would help the Habs are new faces. Seriously, I hope more moves come. Something is def. not right with this team. Up 4-2 and crumble AGAIN!

  37. topher5468 says:

    Yea, Blame this loss on Budaj, he didn’t score in the shootout,

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

  38. Mondou6 says:

    None of those “shots” had a chance. We would be better off taking a blindfolded slapshot from the blue line and hope for the best.

  39. immortalhab says:

    Gomez? Gomez? Why would they put out Gomez? Why not have Budaj take one of the shots??

  40. bellcentre hotdog says:

    Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory!

    This game was a perfect example of the entire season.

  41. PrimeTime says:

    G’nite folks!! See you Tomorr=onto

  42. TomThompson says:

    Gomez? Reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeallllllllly?

  43. Adidess says:

    Think the coach is trying to embarrass Gomez now.

  44. PrimeTime says:

    G’nite folks!! See you Tomorronto

  45. HabsFanInSaintJohn says:

    this team F’n sucks on so many levels….

  46. Danno says:

    Are you kidding me?

    Gomer !!!!!

  50. Mondou6 says:

    We could take 100 shootout attempts and not even hit the net.

  51. HabsFanInSaintJohn says:

    Why cant we ever score in the shootout?!?!

  52. cmaddy says:

    LOL, stick breaks

  53. HardHabits says:

    Dollar for dollar Gomez is better than Malkin.

  54. Mondou6 says:

    lol…God, we are so pathetic.

  55. Duracell3 says:

    Malkin is too good for this league.

  56. Bertuzzi says:

    Gomez??? Cunneyworth is just in it for giggles now.

  57. Mad Habber says:

    Game over…

  58. Les Canayens says:

    Budaj is a “stand up” guy.
