  1. JoeC says:

    Diaz has not impressed at all tonight and hes on with a minute left wow

  2. MICP says:

    praying for a point.

  3. Chris Higgins says:

    Why is Gomez out there?

  4. Jdub1985 says:

    JMs Note Pad up 2 goals:


    and during the TO the pos is a mute as always

  5. Habbu says:

    OMG now they look like they are trying to protect the tie

  6. JoeC says:

    So Gomez got powerplay time over Eller, hmmmm

  7. Mattyleg says:

    So lemme get this straight:
    If a team plays hard and comes back, it’s always because the other team has ‘sat back on a lead’.
    (rolls eyes)

  8. Jdub1985 says:

    JM is a cancer

  9. DEANDALLEY says:

    Every NHL team know what the Habs will do in the 3rd with a lead!

    “If you’re not first, you’re last”

  10. marshx says:

    Subban really needs to start hitting the net with those shots. He’s really good at clearing the zone with it though…..

  11. Jdub1985 says:

    The turning point was the last habs PP
    up by a goal, they were too casual
    too much in this JM trap zone
    instead of building the lead, playing not to lose
    now its about to bite them again

    Blowing a 2 goal third period lead
    JM in a nutshell

  12. axxerd says:

    I read something a little while ago re: Habs slacking off in the third. Muller said that it was never coached, and in fact, it drove the coaching staff nuts. Maybe it’s the team not playing as tough as they have the lead, rather than some ‘system’ by Martin?

    Full disclosure, I’m no fan if JM, but the bitching on here is getting old and predictable.

  13. What must be done in order to stop Jacques from this Plekanec on the point non-sense?

    Another news reporter ticking him off? I’m down.

  14. HFX-HabFan says:

    Boy is Gionta fighting it tonight.

  15. habaholic68NJ says:

    Pleks still on the point and Darche on the PP. JM, give up the insanity.

    *Listen to my instrumental tribute entitled “Habs at War” at

  16. DEANDALLEY says:

    No 3rd straight OT win tonight!

  18. cuzzie says:

    What’s going on with Gionta?

    Stay Thirsty My Friends!

  19. stephen says:

    Nothing quite so deflating as a listless powerplay.

  20. Captain aHab says:

    Darche on the PP again. jM is trying to make a stupid point.

  21. habsperspective says:

    Boone what were seeing isnt just the priceless value of Spatch, but more so the ineptitude, and ignorance of management to think they could keep there heads above water without Markov for the first half of the season.

  22. Barts says:

    How do you have one shot in 14 minutes in your own barn? You stop skating and wait for the other team to come to you. Jacques Martin hockey.

  23. Habbu says:

    Lindy Ruff is the best coach in the NHL; the worst is…..

  24. habsfaninboston says:

    No shots this period. Great game plan JM.

  25. durocher says:

    Please no Pleks on the PP — it’s idiocy to do the same thing over and over and expect a different result.

  26. Rudy says:

    That cross check was brutal

  27. habsrpast says:

    nothing like the passive resistance style .
    JM is a looooooooooooser!

  28. Captain aHab says:

    Score boys puhlease.

  29. Bill says:

    Okay, Gaustad, we get it, you’re not a big wussy just because you wouldn’t fight Lucy, enough already.

  30. jo_maka says:

    Making up for lost time, are we Paul ?
    Open-mindedness is not a skull fracture

  31. JIMVINNY says:

    Knows he pussied out against Lucy, so he takes it out on Emelin.

  32. Barts says:

    How to beat the Montreal Canadiens. Everybody knows, just start laying the body on them. Which is what Buffalo has been doing since the beginning of the period.

  33. Chris Higgins says:

    This PP is gonna be Darchefest!

  34. Thank God the Sabres have Gaustad LOL

  35. DEANDALLEY says:

    This same Sh!t makes me sick!

    “If you’re not first, you’re last”

  36. durocher says:

    Good on Emelin, at least he’s battling in front of the net with a big player in Gaustad

  37. Chris Higgins says:

    Martin is just flat out woeful!

  38. When does Martin’s contract expire?

  39. habsperspective says:

    At the very least, get the consolation point.


  40. durocher says:

    Playing prevent D only begs the other team to pour it on. No shots this period. Zero.

  41. Bill says:

    Ugh. Now I just pray they don’t defend the tie …

  42. Captain aHab says:

    I HATE this play not to lose mentality.

  43. Danno says:

    gloved ahead by Sabres no call…


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

  44. Habbu says:

    Eller not playing with any confidence. I guess JM has given him some words of wisdom lately

  45. DEANDALLEY says:

    Habs deserve to lose now!

    “If you’re not first, you’re last”

  46. JIMVINNY says:

    Why the F^$& didn’t they call the hand pass on the Sabres? It was pretty damn obvious.

  47. Chris Higgins says:

    Sit back, try to protect the one-goal lead and lose!!! JM knows his hockey!!!

  48. habsfaninboston says:

    Sloppy, sloppy.

  49. punkster says:

    Oh PK….

    ***Subbang Baby!!!***

  50. Captain aHab says:

    Bad play by Subban there.

  51. durocher says:

    What a sloppy shift

  53. Bill says:

    Still LOL first wave Gomez-Darche-Gionta … how many goals between those guys this year??

  54. Cdnman1 says:

    We should have declined the penalty:)
    Number 25 in 2012!

  55. durocher says:

    Please take Pleks off the PP — IT’S NOT WORKING

  56. Bill says:

    Gomez is DUE!

  57. habsperspective says:

    Whats the over under line on Markov these days. 10, 15 more games?

  58. Chris Higgins says:

    If that moron Martin puts Darche out on this PP, they deserve to lose!

  59. Bill says:

    I’m actually surprised they called that one.

  60. habstrinifan says:

    Least not many quality shots.

  61. DEANDALLEY says:

    Don’t dare say it Boone!

    “If you’re not first, you’re last”

  62. durocher says:

    Nice blue collar shift by Cole

  63. DEANDALLEY says:

    Typical Martin BS game!

    “If you’re not first, you’re last”

  64. olematelot says:

    be nice to have some offence

  65. Danno says:

    I can’t watch


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

  66. Habbu says:

    Get the puck behind their D; and forecheck like mad men

  67. habstrinifan says:

    Hate these sit-back tendencies.

  68. Bill says:

    Hey, that Gaustad plays pretty tough when he’s not facing Chara and Lucy.

  69. DEANDALLEY says:

    WTF R the Habs doing out there?

    “If you’re not first, you’re last”

  70. Bill says:

    Habs hemmed in in their zone: I sense a penalty coming up …

  71. Mattyleg says:

    Without having read any posts, anybody who says we’re sitting back on a lead is an imbecile.
    I just have a feeling that people are saying that.
    There’s such thing as another team turning on the pressure to get back into the game. Just because we’re defending against their work doesn’t mean that we’re sitting back.

    —Hope Springs Eternal—

  72. Chris Higgins says:

    Time for Peel to call a too-many-men!

  73. olematelot says:

    I’ve seen this movie before

  74. DEANDALLEY says:

    Habs only play 40 mins a game. So this will be the 20 they ….
