You are here: Home » Boone » Liveblog: A significant and satisfying win
Your Montreal Canadiens dominated one of the hottest teams in the NHL.
Two power-play goals, air-tight D.
How they can look horsecrap on Long Island, then obliterate the rested Rangers …
There it is. Systemized
Never in doubt.
Passing passing passing anytime JM if you would like to write me and thank me.
Pleks! Now the argument starts whether he should be playing at the point on the PP.
give him more learning curve time but be prepared that we will give up some shorthanded goals
And that’s why you can’t trust fan opinion. The crowd was booing the constant passing, and yet it resulted in two top-notch chances, and a goal.
Habs forwards coming back aggressively tonight unlike game vs the Isles
habs have legs tonight !! gomez should be sent to the farm, 8 million dollar useless player.why is he still in the nhl?
GO HABS GO
Emelin is having a solid game.
Habs need that 3rd goal to become system-proof.
Wow worring about this team playing 60 minutes of hockey. I think they have played well certainly there were game they should have won up to this point. I like the way they are playing . They are fast and they are finally shows signs of passing the puck. Big question is whem Markov gets back who will sit and can they move Gomez. Plus the powerplay is showing life.
You have to feel bad for Gomez on that one!
I see Gomez botch a breakaway. Breakaways are missed all the time. He didn’t shoot for the logo, or miss the net. He made a good low shot, and Biron snagged it.
Why am I so mad that he missed it? I’ve been mentally rewired to hate the guy.
Gomez scored his last goal Feb 5 2011,wonder who the last player to go a year without scoring was.
Gomez will never score again.
Patches isn’t on tonight. No spunk.
It’s 4am and I’m starting to be drunk…
Alot of the times if you go for the big hit, and you miss, you take yourself out of the play. I’m glad we’re not doing that.
if the nhl has 10 different cup winners next 10 years no suprise…
I think there’s a real chance that either ovechkin or Crosby will play for habs one day. Just a feeling I’ve got in my nether regions.
When did you get this feeling? Was it more than 4 hours ago? If so, call your friends and brag.
…and that is the problem Mr. Boone. They rarely play 60 minutes and there are so many mistakes yet to be made. Sure, we’d all love to see the team play like this every game, but look at Buffalo, look at the Islanders game where we didn’t exist on the ice for half the game. So hold your breath, if we don’t come out and play hard, we’ll be trampled again and then maybe we can get rid of JM.

2 good periods for habs… need solid 3rd..
National Parity League? Habs could finish the night four points out of first in the EC, but still out of playoff position.
Gomez doesn’t suck he is lost and doesn’t know what his role is on this team. DD has taken his place as the number one offensive center and that is not going to change. Question is can they move him because right now I am betting he doesn’t want to be here and the Habs would like to make him happy. What is PG willing to accept to move him because he will have keep salary.
8 regulars out for leafs 6-1 leafs after 2….i think boudreau nearing the end
They’re going on about Ovechkin having problems in Washington. Clearly he needs a change… My suggestion is a straight up trade for Gomez. Think it’ll work?
man.. not a good night for score board watching :0
The 2010-11 Stanley Cup was not won, but given
Friedman > other n00bs on HNIC
The D maybe green and smaller but they are fast and able to beat and out work the bigger Rangers. Not sure if there is a spot for Gill on the back end. DD is looking like one of the smartest players in the NHL and he can pass the puck. JM did I see you give the ref a funny face.Maybe there is hope yet he won’t allow the refs to get away with crap.
Make no mistake. Gomez still sucks!
Sucks less the last few games …
Full Breezer 4 Life
So do the Rags tonight!
Habs consistently on the puck first.
Del Zotto got lapierred
Ha ha. Nice dive Del Idiot….
Nice! Called for diving.
That is F*cking terrible call to make after he just let a boarding go uncalled.
Why is the ref at center ice making that call?
I’d like to see some AK46 too…
That looked dirty.
If Gomez gets a-noth-er chance, then give me one. I’ll play for $7 million less and will put up as many goals as him.
How many hits does Emelin have tonight so far tonight?
Hey! Sit on it, Tortie!
Rangers are reaching, Habs are skating.
Looks. Like. Aaaargh. Gomez. Yeeeoooow. Is. Having. Aruuuuubbbbbboooooooggggaaaaa. A. Hooo-hooooo-hufff-puuuffff. Good. Game.
Gomez on the powerplay. Does JM know that when the other team is shorthanded we don’t have to be??
He’s been good this period so far. Almost set up cam my with a sweet pass.
Nice pass by Gomer.
WTF has Gomez done to earn PP time, he cant even get the puck deep
“It’s not an obsession, It’s a way of life..”
It’s a 2-0 lead and, like him or not, the Habs can use a Gomer that has confidence again. He’s got one point, maybe JM is hoping he’s hungry for more.
Gomez should be starving at this point. I would love to see a vintage version of Gomez but I refuse to be fooled by a few positive glimpses
Desharnais with a liftie!
Where does Elliott Friedman get this speculation that JM was referring to Scott Gomez as difficult to deal with.
I didn’t get that from his interview with Stubbs.
The Habs are clearly benefiting from the lack of Chorske Summit Jinx.
Thanks for taking one for the team.
I’m big that way. Also, watching a game under a palm tree is a pretty decent plan B
Dirty player that Callahan.
Sit on it Fonzie!
“Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”
Hey someone who Gomez passed the puck to finally scored, crazy!
Is it ginger night at the Bell?
Gomer with the assist?
He must have logged into HIO on his phone between periods and read my comments!!
Torts isn’t going to be happy about that one. The Rags were actually getting some decent Mo going.
How the hell did that go in. Biron must have been napping.
Looks like HALAK is a PENNEY? i.e. for those that remember the hype around Steve Penney in 1994/95
— HABS INSIDE/OUT R.I.P. —
Or a Jim Carrey?
a-a–a-a-a-a-all righty then!
“I went to a fight the other night and a hockey game broke out”
watching gomez play over eller is painful
I believe Scott Gomez is the worst NHL player (point production per salary), who do you think is the second worst player in the league?
Hey Tortorella: sit on it, Fonzie!
Why does Martin hate Eller and love Gomez?
The reason Eller doesn’t get more ice time, despite his obvious talent, is a result of not playing smart hockey. Most recent example…20 seconds on the clock and Eller tries to dangle at the Rangers blue line instead of dumping it in. Result – turnover.
Gomez doesn’t turn the puck over he gives our young D the chance to get some experience.
I see our national asshat was picking on Darche.
If we can play 40 more minutes like that, we might win. But we nearly always have one bad, not to say disastrous period. Will the fact I said this act as a reverse jinx?
It’s clear to me that palushai needs more seasoning and I don’t think he is getting the right type of ice time right now. I would like to see guys like Blunden or Schultz brining some size and grit to that line
The powerplay is still a mess, but that last one was well orchestrated. Weber just miss timed a couple of one timers. That one in the slot from DD was one he should have rifled. Oh well…
At least the effort is there and the refs haven’t ‘Tim Peeled’ this one yet…
I hope the HIO gang raises the decibel level. The guys always play better when the crowd gets in on the action. Let’s hear it guys. I’m guessing that was you lot all over Avery. Love your work!
Let’s hope they vary from the usual script and bury these guys.
That move Eller just did proves he’s been watching Gomez. Skate to the blue line, make a move, and lose the puck.
Gotta disagree with you about Diaz and Emelin’s last shift there Boone. The way I see it is it’s a couple of nobodies playing against the likes of Gaborik, and not giving him much. Seeing Diaz and Gaborik battle it out with Diaz taking the advantage, put a smile on my face.
This is the problem, we should be up 2 or 3, it always comes back to hurt us
What’s wrong with Weber’s stick?
Hello to all the summiteers. Hope you are all having a terrific time. Bon match!
As much as I’m not a fan of DD being the center that gets to play with the teams two best wingers, the three of them certainly are dominant at times.
I just wonder how much better they could be with Pleks or Eller. It’s almost as if JM is hiding DD between the other two.
Hey guys, Exou’s stream is down. Does anybody know another one I could use?
IF you’re in Canada you can watch it on cbcsports.ca I believe.
Are you in a location that blocks the CBC feed? eg maybe they have to filter on IP address location for television rights reasons.
The saturday games are usually on the HNIC site. I have it going since my (very very very bad) 5 year old wants to watch some stupid cartoon.
“Et le but!”
I didn’t realize it was on CBC, thanks!
CHeers from MTL
His channel just got canceled, its happened at least 20 times… the best bet it to search justin.tv for ‘exnordic’ or ‘exou’. It’s been up in HD all night… I just cant do CBC
Everytime Gomer touches the puck he turns it over. Wish this dude would get his shit together.
But he turns it over with more effort than last year… that’s what’s important!
And of course he’s a nice guy, so he turns it over with a warm heart.
I had high hopes for him this year. Especially after apologizing to the fans and media after the playoffs. I kept saying Give him a chance, but it’s starting to bug me now. Getting sick of saying to myself “Time for a turnover” as soon as he touches the puck.
So final tally :
Turnover – $44,325
Nice Guy – $27,654
Amusing Quote after the game – $31,673.45
Ooh Aah Habs on the war path
How much does Gomer charge for spitting on the ice?

Who do you think the Canadiens should have kept as their backup goalie behind Carey Price?
