    as a hockey fan in general, that was shameful to watch. what a joke of a coaching system in the 3rd. Typical JM system is to play 40 mins, if winning, sit back. If tied, sit back and get the point. In OT hope for the best, but at least they got the point. Shameful to watch.

    Habs fan…Nuff said

  2. Man Dingga says:

    Frankly, SO’s are 50/50 at best. This game should’ve never gone to a shootout. This JM system is brutal and so out dated. Losses like this one are on the coach. Defence continues to collapse in on Pricey and the opposition continue to drive to the net. We need guys who can clear traffic. Its going to be a long season.

  3. topher5468 says:

    How can a team up 2-0 in thier on building, with a chance to win their 3rd in a row against a tough divisional opponent, be so efin flat. Please, explain that to me. Disgusting

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

  4. Barts says:

    Winning 2-0 at home and you blow it. Sorry, but you can say all you want about getting a point, but that’s a BRUTAL loss. The true Habs reared their ugly head. The same team that was beaten by Philly in the playoffs two season ago. Hit them and they’ll disappear…and would it kill Price to make a f’n save in the shootout????

  5. Wayne says:

    Don’t know why Cole didn’t shoot.

  6. j2w4habs25 says:

    OMG what the heck was there? I really thought we had this
    game. I think its time to FIRE Jacques Martin
    Carey Price #31

  7. JIMVINNY says:

    So f*&%ing sick of losing to buffalo in a shootout after a having a two goal lead. I even called it after the second.

  8. Danno says:

    Loser point

    J-Mart snatches defeat from the jaws of victory once again.

    Really disappointing loss.

  9. Jdub1985 says:

    JMs retarded passive trap coaching in the 3rd cost them everything
    He is a cancer, and he must be fired! This game is a quintessential example of why he is a failure.

    on a side note – Carey Price for some reason is a garbage NHL SO goalie.

  10. Bill says:

    Has poor Carey made a save in the shoot-out yet this season?

  11. twilighthours says:

    Brutal. Gorges costs us another big goal with awful play behind net.

  12. Habbu says:

    Well that was refreshing; Price looked as pissed off as I am.

  13. durocher says:

    Thank the prevent D to start the third for this breakdown.

  14. JoeC says:

    So Jm, you lost us that game, how are you not old enough or have not learned the less 100’s of times by now that you stink at your protect a lead system.

    Are we being punished by keeping this POS coach or is Molson too cheap to suck it up and make the move, because that chicken S PG wont.

  15. Chris Higgins says:

    Take yer JM loser point and hit the showers. Sit back, play no offense lose in OT or SO. That’s the JM system!

  16. HFX-HabFan says:

    Ugh. I’ll take the loser point, but it sucks that the extra one is going to a divisional rival. We need to get healthy.

  17. duffy says:

    Price sure SUCKS in a shootout.

  18. Fack man..

    As much as I love Price, he’s not much of a SO goalie.

  19. MICP says:

    Buffalos first win when trailing after 2.

  20. Wayne says:

    Mission accompished… JM got the point. BRAVO

  21. badbalance says:


  22. habsfaninboston says:

    Great 3rd period game plan, JM.

  23. HabFab says:

    Loser point!!

  24. MICP says:

    undressed price like a freshman at the senior prom

  25. joe-hab-nuno says:

    JM sucks

  26. Bill says:

    Yeah, that seems about right.

  27. Chris Higgins says:

    Price was denuded there!

  28. Habbu says:

    Pleks looked so exhausted he couldn’t even shoot

  29. Rudy says:

    Pleks was gassed

  30. MICP says:

    No one could have guesssed

  31. JoeC says:

    Plecs doestn even try, and Vanek makes price look liek a pee wee goalie.

  32. Chris Higgins says:

    Pleks was lame.

  33. Bill says:

    I hate this shootout BS

    Full Breezer 4 Life

  34. Pathetic, pathetic, pathetic! Playing for a point! WTF, who is going to kick that fool out behind the bench. Every bloody time we have a lead, JM collapses the defense and cuts the offense and we either lose give up a lead or God knows what. Whoopie, one point. Pathetic. We need to lose ten in a row to get rid of JM and Gauthier. Pathetic

    Carey Price #31

  36. Habzfan says:

    Where was Cole on that PP?

  37. duffy says:

    Fire the coach.

  38. Jdub1985 says:

    Unless Price has miraculously improved at breakaways
    SOs are nothing to celebrate

    Habs had to win it on the PP
    infact, if it werent for JMs retarded outdated system
    they wouldve won it by now

  39. Habbu says:

    Gomez couldn’t score in Thailand

  40. HFX-HabFan says:

    Anyone else wonder why Pierre feels the need to refer to Derek Roy as “Roi”?

  41. durocher says:

    That’s mrs durocher right behind Ruff

  42. DEANDALLEY says:

    I can’t stomach to look at Martin.

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

  43. Bill says:

    Darche, Gomez, Diaz?

    Full Breezer 4 Life

  44. Timo says:

    THE most pathetic team on PP. Pathetic in general but on PP they take it to the whole new level.

  45. MICP says:

    Buffalo will win the shootout.

    Great comeback for Buffalo

  46. Barts says:

    Gomez (who hasn’t scored since Michael Jackson was alive) on the OT PP and no Cole. WTF is wrong with this coach????

  47. ffenliv says:

    While I appreciate his spirit, Subban playing that puck back in with his hands was stupid. The Sabres were just going to stare at it until the whistle went.

    Good heart, though.

  48. Jdub1985 says:

    PPs one strategy
    shot from the point

    Carey Price is NOT a SO goalie

  49. JasonM says:

    Best part of that PP was PK breathing hard.

  50. JoeC says:


  51. JIMVINNY says:

    Complaining about getting called for a slew foot. Rich.

  52. JoeC says:

    Price is better at clearing the zone then Diaz

  53. Wayne says:

    PK’d… Patches to the rescue… again. CHeck it out.

  54. Habbu says:

    Cole needs that depth perception checked

  55. NLhabsfan says:

    I think he goalie sold that one!!!

  56. Wayne says:

    That was dumb. Cole should’ve know better. Goalies are off-limits for the next 20 games.

  57. JasonM says:

    What is with Buffalo and their goalies not being able to stay in their nets?

  58. MICP says:

    we may be the dumbest team in the nhl

  59. Barts says:

    Now Pominville’s a tough guy. Where were you on Sat night?

  60. durocher says:

    No doubt about that one. Not a smart play.

  61. Bill says:

    Say goodnight …

    Full Breezer 4 Life

  62. DEANDALLEY says:

    What a way to end a game!

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

  63. JIMVINNY says:

    What a load of crap.

  64. Danno says:

    What the hell did Cole do that for?


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

  65. habsfaninboston says:


  66. Habbu says:

    Had these guys on the ropes……so frustrating to watch

  67. Jdub1985 says:

    JM is the most generous coach in the league
    he wants everyone to get a point

  68. Habs need to get rid of Diaz when Markov returns, not Emelin.

  69. Chris Higgins says:

    I’d double shift Darche and Gomer in OT!

  70. Danno says:

    Typical J-Mart game.

    Drives me nuts


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

  71. JIMVINNY says:

    Nothing like handing a divisional opponent a free point(or two).

  72. MICP says:

    We got a point.

    We will lose in ot but we will take the point.

  73. Maksimir says:

    Gomez on the ice again for another goal against…

    Habs have hit their ‘goals for’ ceiling for tonight.. 2.

    Good night my friends, I’m off to see if I can score with my wife, though I think my odds are as good as Montreal’s PP efficiency.

  74. JoeC says:

    Gionta and Plecs with Patchs, guess Coles played liek sht tonight guess thats why he gets to be on the ice the last 20 seconds…

  75. JoeC says:

    So what does JM see in Diaz?? i mean he needs time in the AHL but hes JM’s favorite young defeceman, wtf
