PRE-GAME AUDIO: Josh Gorges | Max Pacioretty
Plekanec: Four dekes and a save
Vanek: Wrister goal
Boyes: Deke and an easy goal
They’re staring to play their typical JM soft-as-baby-crap hang-on-for-dear-life system!
Diaz was doing okay until Cole actually popped that one loose for Roy. Unfortunate, but who was meant to be covering Pominville?
Habs playing not to lose now!
“If you’re not first, you’re last”
that goal was coles fault, Diaz had the puck behind the net and was on his way out and Cole grabbed it off him going the other way and the rest is history
Great coverage by DD!
Who said shutout?
SHUT YOUR MOUTH BOONE!
That one’s on you, Boone.
AND Larry …
Damn you Boone.
Boone’s a genius!
The early one: Boone called it. Boys just fell asleep defending their lead out there.
Full Breezer 4 Life
Beware the early one.
Who said that?
“Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”
No letting up Guys skate & shoot!
Some teams gel quickly and find success at the start of the year. Others don’t gel immediately and struggle all year. That last couple/few games has seen the Habs finding a way to win with a little luck coming off the better end of poor coverages and mental lapses. At the moment, this team looks like it’s doing the hard work necessary to find itself. The next 10 games will determine what team we have.
I have to add this: Scott Gomez defies gravatitional laws. When he’s out there, it’s essentially a 6 on 4 for the opponent.
Gomez is becoming a sympathetic figure now.
Van Riemsdyk just bowls over his own goalie (Bobrovsky) lol Intent to injure? Discuss.

If I were Plekanec I would pull a Pronger/Coburn in the defensive zone on the PP. How long will it take Martin to realize that he SUCKS there and probably is pissed as F*** that he’s there to begin with? God damnit…
I was thinking the same thing… we miss his down low passing abilities IMO. I also think Spacke, Weber, Gorges and PK can handle the point well enough…. and Diaz too sometimes.
For a coach that puts his lines in a blender on a regular basis why can’t Martin see that the Pleks on the point experiment is, well, pointless?
Other than first names that both begin with M, there is hardly any resemblance between MaxPac and Mike McPhee. Huge fan of the latter, but that’s stretchin’ it; McPhee did consistently and fearlessly drive the net, but he didn’t have MaxPac’s hands.
Sabres’ D has looked really tentative in their own end for two periods runnin’. But, I’ll never underestimate Ruff’s ability to motivate in short order.
McPhee was like Bob Nystrom. Both were big, fast, tough, and mean–no one wanted to fight them.
On the ice for what continues to be my favourite goal of all-time: Claude Lemieux’s game 7 OT marker on Hartford’s Mike Liut. Thought I was gonna explode.
Loved McPhee’s reaction.
Got up to get a drink at about 15 mins into the second and RDS was saying 4 on 3 for almost 4 mins when I got back. Glad to see it was just a mistake!
The bad news is that the Habs scored on the powerplay, which means that a shorthanded goal will be coming soon to even things up.
Come on Man… join the fun! Enjoy!
It’s so much fun to watch Cole taking off.
He has gerat power moves too!
How about them blues?
oops. I guess Everlasting’s comment didn’t stick around….
Missed it… what was said?
Just his usual negativity. Didn’t really pay attention, to be honest.
Hi all..late to the show..anyone got any feeds?..channfeed is giving me carolina/dallas. Thanks all.
If you want RDS then this is the feed for you: http://justin.tv/exou09
He’s got every game on there, I even signed up to justin.tv so I can watch it on my iphone (cool app!). They also email you when the channel goes live, so you get pregame and post game coverage.
All you need to do is google: exou09. Its usually the first hit! Enjoy
Thanks db, appreciate it man!
RDS commenting on Price’s puckhandling, and they’re right; he is getting better. Scary.
Big news out of Boston last night Lucic shot a man outside of a Bar. It just happen Gary Bettman was leaving the restaurant near by and whitness the whole thing. When the cops asked Bettman what happen he said it was a hockey play and the cops let Lucic go.
If Lindy’s first intermission speech didn’t sink in you can bet this one will. I mean, Habs come up in the second with a 1-0 lead the book on them is press and they’ll give up a couple. Now what Lindy?
That PP was awful.
Can’t wait till Markov comes back so this Plekanec experiment ends forever. It’s so damn painful to watch. I’d prefer Gorges there over Pleky.
Would it be so wrong to send thank you cards to Lucic. One for Miller, and the other for the Komi.
Nice call, can I borrow a “Peel”ing? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zo3vLSoXWw4
A real hottie sitting behind Ruff
“It’s not an obsession, It’s a way of life..”
Gorges is the LEADER on D out there
Man Gorges is good…guy is so underrated
What happened to Cammy?
I think he’s flipping tires in a schoolyard somewhere…
Did Cole hold back and not touch the puck so Patches would get the goal? In slow motion it looks like he did.
Whenever that happens, I can’t fault the guy who swats at the puck on the way in. As a pro, I’m sure it’s just instinct to swipe at a puck sitting in the crease, regardless of how close to the line it is, how it got there, or what direction it’s moving in.
Me neither. It just looked like Cole saw it was going in and maybe hesitated or maybe I’m imagining things…
Cole is a beast.
Anyone understand why McGuire has always compared Pacioretty to Mike McPhee? While I wouldn’t mind a McPhee on this team, Max reminds me more of LeClair.
Not even a resemblance.
McGuire is a tool. McPhee could skate like the wind, hit like a truck, and fight with anyone. But he couldn’t score goals. LeClair is a much better analogy.
If only Max never got hurt last season!
WOW! Great great thinking.
I love that line.
Nice stop and start by Cole
Bad Cole… trying to steal Max’s goal at the last instant!
So if this is Emelin’s best game does this mean we’re going to see more of him
Man I love this Pacioretty kid, I hope he’s a Hab for a long long time with PK and Price.
The 3 P’s!!!
That looked like it was in slow motion, but way to go Wolverine!
Max Pac. That puck had eyes.
Sloppy, but it works.
Thats what she said 🙂
ET LE BUUUUUUUUUUT!!
I hope you’re happy now.
You just caused permanent damage to the internet.
How do you like dem apples Gaustad?
Tim Peel me a Grape is revving up his Fix-o-Matic game changer
A whole lot of hooking going on in the buffalo end, but they call instead the trip.
I like Eller but Gomez is a better hockey player than Eller
what???????? when was the last time Gomez scored?
We’re starting to lack discipline.
Spacek’s back on bench
Boone, how is that NOT a penalty. Gorges got his stick in under his legs, and ushered his feet out from under him.
Let’s face it, if the jerseys had been reversed and no call was made, you’d be upset that Habs get interfered with all the time and it’s never called.
that play occurs 50 times a game and is never called
What # is PEEL?
Sabres tuff tonight eh.
NOT SO TUFF IN BOSTON!
Gerbe’s the only player in the league that makes Desharnais look tall(er).
Too much Gerber baby food.
A square dance just broke out
DD almost fought against Gerbe. It was almost cute 😛
Open-mindedness is not a skull fracture
Saw Boone’s blog Gomez more ice time than Eller in 1st period.. did Gomez deserve this? Love my boy Eller to keep being important.. he has been.
At least Spatcho can’t turn it over from the room, or can he?
Great composure by Soobs on that one.
Darche trying to create his own secondary scoring chance by shooting at the crest on a breakaway?
Darche needs the nice soft hands of Moen
Darche? Of all players on a break away!
Nice hustle by Engqvist
Just tuned in.. wife had physio session.. WHAT’S HAPPENING?
Habs are winning…..But the Whine and Cheese Fest is still going strong here. (Hold the cheese)
Does Gomez have any scoring or offensive prowess left at all
What’s Cole doing on the power-play? I thought JM did some research on that …
I like Cole, the guy definitely adds something that we haven’t had.
ya had to believe Cole would finally get one
Nice stick check by Emelin at the line…
