Scott Gomez in a Shootout?
AK46: Broken stick!!
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
now that is funny dane i could see him doing that…..lol
Like that analogy of our season:Kostitsyn’s stick
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.
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.
And Pittsburgh without Crosby and Staal …..so don’t kid yourself’s …WE F’N SUCK!
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?
He was making Gomez earn his 7 Mill.
what a waste of a evening – i have tomorrow planned to watch the habs.
Carey Price #31
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 …
ans that is why Budaj is not a starter. I could have stoped those shots, what the hell was he doing????
huh….maybe you were watching a different game. He didn’t have much chance on either
Some people just have to find something to complain about.
no chance give me a break he was on his knees for the 3rd goal before jefferies even shot the puck. he did not even move on Malkins gaol….he had a chance and he blew it…
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.
Why does he?
Cause Price will get bashed again and again and again if the Habs lose to Leafs.
anotherv start ???? drinkin’ are we ?… he had his chance tonite …it didn’t work out for him
…And if Gomez had scored, what clever comments would you all have had?
Jack Edwards is a clam
You underestimate us.
“Miracle on Ice”
Yeah…that was almost too easy..lol
Was Rene Bourque playing tonight??
“take your time and hurry up”
This is what Kelly Hrudey warned ya about with this guy.
Bourque and Kostitsyn are playing see-saw.
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
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…
Bergeron laughs at his own comments whatever they are – Is he really that humourous for an ex-coach with a heart condition……
Tell me again why we’re better than the Leafs? In case I get asked at the game tomorrow night.
Change the number and replace Price with Yapukov or Grigorneko and you’ll be fine.
I’m headed down to the basement right now to get the masking tape.
The perfect representation of the Habs’s season: Kostitsyn’s stick.
Cunnyworth should be fired for that move alone.
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.
Eller ….Bourque..but Gomez ..WTF …
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?
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.
“They don’t hang Conference Championship Banners from the rafters here”
so sad so mad so goodnight
Thanks, P.K. Is that the fifth or the sixth game you’ve cost us?
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.
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
I think SWIFFER I mean Gomez was off side on that attempt??
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?
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.

AAhhhh, I get it. Cunny didn’t want to win the game. I guess the tank IS in.
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!!!
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
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!
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
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. —
Wonder if Cammy is missing the Habs tonight.
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
LMAO Gomez. Cunneyworth also wants to Fail for Nail!
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.

Almost a year since the last one. Here’s a countdown if you want to remember:
Thank you! 🙂
it has to be very close to a fiscal year. I guess a pure hockey year would be 82 games net injuries.
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!
Yea, Blame this loss on Budaj, he didn’t score in the shootout,
“It’s not an obsession, It’s a way of life..”
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.
Gomez? Gomez? Why would they put out Gomez? Why not have Budaj take one of the shots??
Snatching defeat from the jaws of victory!
This game was a perfect example of the entire season.
G’nite folks!! See you Tomorr=onto
Think the coach is trying to embarrass Gomez now.
G’nite folks!! See you Tomorronto
this team F’n sucks on so many levels….
What a joke.
Are you kidding me?
“Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”
hahah gomez to score a clutch goal… hahahaha
The 2010-11 Stanley Cup was not won, but given
We could take 100 shootout attempts and not even hit the net.
Why cant we ever score in the shootout?!?!
LOL, stick breaks
I loled too.
Dollar for dollar Gomez is better than Malkin.
Eerie prescient sarcasm.
lol…God, we are so pathetic.
Malkin is too good for this league.
MVP if the season ended today
Gomez??? Cunneyworth is just in it for giggles now.
it has to be that at this point of the season
Budaj is a “stand up” guy.
☞ I can’t really hear what Jeremy says, because I’ve got my two Stanley Cup rings plugging my ears.☜
Jaro Jaro Jaro. burp!?!
Haha couldn’t have happened to a better person.
Does the TSN announcer have a lisp all of a sudden, or am I imagining it??
I really hope Kabby the Habby gets a turn and scores
Malkin not too shabby.
I love watching the Shootout, I just hate that it actually means anything.
Whooo!! A point
Love the Van Halen.
Enough already about Halack…………..HE’S GONE GIVE IT A REST……….PUT IT TO BED
You didn’t know this is HalakInsideOut?
If boone had his way
Once again, it’s Price’s fault that the lead was blown…
Meant shootout stats…
Borque, Cole and DD
SO – Kaberle, Diaz, Gill?
☞ I can’t really hear what Jeremy says, because I’ve got my two Stanley Cup rings plugging my ears.☜
can they dress a player just for the shootout?
Is there a young player somewhere with the name “Vinny Halak?” we could buy?
hahah i love it
