PRE-GAME AUDIO: Josh Gorges | Max Pacioretty
Plekanec: Four dekes and a save
Vanek: Wrister goal
Boyes: Deke and an easy goal
Why sooo much love for DD! He’s put between the two best forwards on out team, at the moment. He’s slow, small and terrible at face offs. I wish Eller was between to half decent players….
DD has fantastic chemistry with Max dating back to Hamilton. Oh, and he was by far the best face off man last night 11-7.
In Price we Trust
I love how you all circle the wagons when it comes to pretty boy Price. Most of you seem to forget how truly “great” goalies “steal” games even when their team plays like crap. Still waiting for the Carey steals….
You might as well keep waiting. I really don’t see things changing a lot. You either have it or you don’t (ability to steal games). They say a goalie doesn’t hit his prime until he’s about 31 or so..but the ability to steal games should be evident at an earlier age.
Well you’re blind, he steals most nights when his defence in front of him F’s up. The goals in shootout were goals not too many in this league would have stopped. They’re goalie was no better but we couldn’t hit the net and then the ones who could were sitting on the bench.
You sound suspiciously like Price’s agent.
Ummm…errrrrr (runs away) hahaha
No I just see the game, the abilities of the players and know who is good and who isn’t because I played the game competitively most of my life, coached it rather effectively and reffed it.
Then,perhaps, YOU should coach the Habs. Parlez vous francais? You obviously have all the other requisite necessities.
“Pretty boy Price”
So if he were butt ugly, would you like him more?
These players deserve much better coaching.
I just do not know how they suck it up every night knowing this Martin guy is the worse coach they have ever played for in their careers.
Notice how he injected Gomez into the upper ranks on and off. One goal was his fault, too lazy to cover his man in high slot. Thanks $7mil man and Dumbo!
Amen Ian…..Can you coach? I’ll work the doors.
Agreed Ian. But who would you put behind Habs bench keeping in mind politics(language)which has dogged this franchise for years.
DD was once again amazing tonight. Too bad, no one seems to give him credit.
Canadien en 5!
Never go Full Retard
He’d be a lot better if he was a foot taller but he has been playing well lately.
I still say this team’s biggest three issues are thus:
* a horrible power-play.
* an inability to get out of their own zone, and they get bottled up for long stretches that often result in scrambled goals
* an inability to win key face-offs.
All three are down to poor coaching and poor personnel selections (like letting Halpern go).
I remember Dec. 31, 1975
Your first 2 = Martin being a lousy coach using the wrong players and strategy.
#3, the guys taking the faceoff have the most ice time and they’re puny. They’re no match. Twice tonight Plekanec won the face off the guy overpowered him skated behind him and got puck. Desharnais, they just sweep him aside. What can you do?
Desharnais is the Habs best centre. And that’s not saying much for the team’s depth at that position. Plex on the point for the PP isn’t helping.
I can’t stand the line combos of choices. There was a winning line-up and that team no longer exists. Nokia-Blunden-Darche was the best 4th line in a while. Now it’s a Gomez-Nokia hodge podge.
Desharnais reminds me of a diminutive
“Pocket” Richard who never let his lack of height bother him.
Well Eller is better than Plekanec at faceoffs and Eller if you note difference in playing time has better FO% than Desharnais. Desharnais doesn’t win along the boards as much as Eller and he also doesn’t have the size or puck finesse. If Eller played as much as Desharnais (at center) he would probably be better.
I know, Plek’s on PP is doing zip and has done zip except for the fluke goal.
The combo’s are the result of Martin, what can you do about dumbo? Fire another assistant coach?
Eller is so disposable it ain’t funny. He has nothing on DD.
Thus sayeth the Lord, “Destroyed I the Amorite before them, whose height was like the height of the cedars, and he was strong as the oaks.” Amos 2:9
“We don’t see things as they are, but as we are.” – Anais Nin
Very good points you raised there and all of them are fixable now.
PP: Think outside the box…obviously what they have tried and what they are doing isn’t working. Maybe it wouldn’t be the worst idea in the world to have Lars Eller see some PP time. He is a playmaker – great passer.
Geeting out of our end: This has been a problem prior to this year….its just raising its ugly head more often now. For the most part our defensemen can’t make the first outlet pass because of agressive forcheck and our wingers /centre don’t comeback in time to help out in tandem for 2 quick passes to get out of the zone and turn the play to our advantage.
Winning Face-offs: WE had that 5 day hiatus….why wasn’t Yannick Perreault called in to run some training sessions for the team. This guy should be around on a regular basis. No sense having some Asst. Coach who was a D-Men or Forward try to teach you that if he’s never done it. Get the guy who did it and did it well.
Of course these things would take 1) some management skills and 2) some Head Coaching Skills and we’re SOL on that front.
“I reject your reality and substitute my own”.
– Adam Savage
yo was Eller hurt.. where was he for the third period?
also great game by Emelin, if the injuries bring anything good it is to show JM that he is dumb not to use Emelin
The 2010-11 Stanley Cup was not won, but given
When you consider the players who have been and are missing from the line up I think they are hanging in there pretty well. People crap on players like Diaz etc who have been put in a situation they aren’t prepared for and wouldn’t be in if not for the injuries. Cut them some slack, better times are ahead.
If you took the yearly pay of Gointa,Gnomes and Cammi and got 2 real superstars we would rock! No ,just thought bout it,J-Mart would eff it up!
I agree with that,Whasif ther no doesnt the same with out having the same, forwards ?
1. Eric Cole just keeps looking better and better. Fast, powerful, and determined. And he and Patches seem to really feed off each other. And with the industrious and creative DD, that line looks dangerous everytime they are on the ice.
2. Gorges is far and away our best defenseman. No sign of diminishing skills or effort after the surgery.
3. Subban seems to be playing more within himself and not trying to do too much. Thus, he was quite effective tonight.
4. The other PK (as in man short) continues to be one of the league’s best.
5. Despite a ridiculous string of injuries, we are still a point ahead of the Bruins. Mind you, we are also 4 behind the Leafs.
I have done the research!!! And STATISTICALLY am justified in making the OBSERVATION that Jessica the reporter is more astute in use of PP personnel than JM the coach.
Hope she turns her attention to PLEKS ON THE POINT next.
I feel in my gut that you are correct.
just wondering, what if that was matt cooke that hit miller? suspension?
Other than Cole, Pleks, Max Pac and Price, this is a mediocre AHL team. Seriously, Eller needs to play in the A to learn how to score the puck. Even Subban needs to learn how to play like a professional athlete.
In baseball, triple A ball is for youth coming up (Eller, Diaz, DD, Emelin, etc) and for old washed up farts going down (Gomer and Gionta particularly)
Hamilton is missing its Bulldogs! Check their record and you’ll see that they’re not very good, cause all of their players are in Montreal.
Anyone who say’s Price cost us the game, does not know a thing about this game. He was stellar the whole game. He made huge saves time and time again. he was awesome.
His coach let him down again, as he let every player on the team down. I think the boys can win this division, but not with this Martin guy behind the bench.
I would take Betty Crocker ahead of this fool.
even betty burns a cake now and again.
an old harry neal one liner.
Price didn’t cost us this particular game,but the fact of the matter is,when a game goes beyond 60 minutes in regular season or playoffs,Price’s record is horrendous. Does not exactly conjure up images of Patrick Roy who absolutely shone under similar circumstances behind some very mediocre teams….speaking of which…I would love to see Patrick Roy as the goaltender coach of the Habs. He could probably teach Carey a thing or two.
Price is as clutch as Roy was humble.
It was Roy’s a..hole personality which drove him to succeed. Price is way too laid back…doesn’t appear to have the fire within him the way Roy did.
I’d like to see you do better. I can’t fault him for any of the goals. You can’t pull miracles from your hat every single time. Comparing his abilities to Roy is kind of silly. Different time, different players, different game.
I’m not not a goalie..professional or otherwise. Asking me to do better is REALLY silly. LOL
Ah, so the statistician and coach-potato fan.
Price is an excellent goalie. I’ll bet you every goalie hates that dumb shootout too. It’s not a way to decide a game. He didn’t have a chance on either goal though and we flubbed one, perhaps 2 and we got a really nice one by Pacioretty. Plekanec need less ice time. He is overworked as is Price. Martin has that great stat pad that tells him otherwise. I bet he got tic-tacs mixed up with Plekanec.
Maybe it has more to do with the Habs not scoring?
Liking you more and more Ian. Yep another Martin blunder tonight. Plekanec must be just toast out there. He insists on playing the guy over and over again and on the PP on the blue line. I just don’t get the guy he is so F’ing daft in his decisions.
Why are you dissing Betty Crocker?
Can’t win em’ all. And this loss is no way on Price. Shootouts don’t seem to be his forte though
Price has got to be the worst shootout goalie in the league. Guys are completely owning him now. How such a big goalie can look like such a piece of swiss cheese on the breakaways is beyond me. Can we try Budaj in the shootouts?
And for the love of God, enough with Pleks in the shootouts. Cole, Desharnais, Subban, Cammy. Pleks doesn’t even come close to scoring anymore.
You want guys who didn’t even play tonight taking a shoot out. I nominate you for head coach.
To be fair, Cammy could have at least put on skates.
Good idea, Engqvist just got hurt anywway.
Price: 2 shootout shots..2 goals. No one on this board would have done worse.
Enough with the Plekanac experiment on the point… There is a decent point man available, and probably not too expensive —his name is Brian McCabe
6’01, hard worker, team player, good point shot..
yea, he could take care of chara for us too.
seriously though, i think he’d help on pp
In other news, perhaps palusaj is an NHLer after all.
Gotta admit, he has looked good the last two games.
I blame this on the players. With the amount of scoring chances in the first and second we should of had a bigger lead but no one can finish on this team. I don’t like JM either but you can’t blame every lose on him
Yes I can! Playing for this jerk sitting on the bench fresh while he burned out other team mates all night. Yes I blame him for implementing such crap for a game plan every night.!
I suspect Geoff Molson already has grave doubts about Habs ability to make the postseason and the attendant playoff gate revenue. Therefore, he’s allowing advertising on glass behind nets to somewhat offset this.
I hope you’re not serious, that’s super imposed by tv, not visible in the rink
Didn’t you notice when the program glitched and one of the ads was sliding around the glass?
Yo Curly, didn’t you notice that the ad changed over the course of the game? Did you think someone physically changed it between whistles? You ARE a stooge, but perhaps you’re playing me for one. I hope.
What does THAT have to do with the point I’m making??
As several have noted, if habs had a real PP this team would be 4-6 pts better. A better/different coach would definitely improve this. Or a markov. I’ll take either one right now.
I rather see Sandusky behind the bench
That’s how cancerous JM is to this team.
Dude, that is wrong on every respectable level.
Not cool, at all.

Way out of place.
GO HABS GO! 2011-12 is our year!
RGM’s Movember page: http://mobro.co/RGM81
Keeping it classy as usual I see.
“No, I see. The monkey’s out of the bottle now!”
LOL… and I hate myself for laughing. But it’s funny!
I found some slightly satisfying news.
Toronto fell to sixth, and now only holds a 4 point cushion.
I’m guessing that Lars would have better nights if he got to play with Cole and Pacioretty.
And take DD off that line? Why, in God’s name, would anyone want to do that?! That line was dominant all night! And Eller and AK will be back together soon. Hopefully with Gionta on the wing.
I know we all can bash him on HIO
but what is the legitimate chance something will be done?
I have believed in this group of players all season long. So don’t get all “internet attack mode” on me for being sarcastic. Go jump all over some else who is actually being serious, playing the blame game on the players.
Ask Ian, ask others, I refuse to believe THIS group of players have no talent. I am of the majority who don’t like how the coaching staff use the available talent.
There’s a good deal of blame to go around tonight. I am still baffled that a guy that is 3-for-19 in his career in the shootout is picked first. I like Pleks a bunch, and when I saw him go off the ice in duress in the first period I was gravely worried. He just doesn’t have what it takes in the shootout. Yet somehow he is the first choice of this coach every time, it seems.
There’s some serious misuse of talent on this team, on this I think we can agree. Markov can’t return soon enough.
We totally agree on the misuse of talent.
The problem with Pleks, he is a coach’s dream player, does triple duty most nights. Martin is grasping at straws, but after tonight (and you bring up a good point about Pleks being in pain coming off the ice), I would never have put Plekanec as the 1st shooter, let alone top 3.
Ian is another poster who knows Pleks is over used by the coach. Not Pleks fault at all, he is tired come game end, but still such a cornerstone for this team in so many situations. Hard not to go to him, he is a “Go-To” guy.
C’mon, Carey, win a frickin’ shootout for once. Is this the same goalie we saw in the SO competition in the All-Star game last year, blocking shots from the best? Doesn’t look like it…
What happened in the third period? Sheesh!
If you don’t have time to do it right, you don’t have time to do it twice.
So according to JM, the plan was not to sit back in the 3rd. Having an inexperienced D-corps was his excuse.
Spacek and Gill probably out for the next game.
The Count actually said: The Best Defence Is Offence……
And I’m not even joking…..whhhhhhhhhhaaaaattttttt???????
Open-mindedness is not a skull fracture
He also said he will play a puck possession game. Too bad he only wants Gomez to have possession.
I actually expected Gomez, Darche and Moen on the shoot out. I don’t even know if I’m joking anymore….:S
Open-mindedness is not a skull fracture
First time I post all season. Why did I decide to post tonight? Because JM cost us the game by not going with his hot hands instead using duds Gomez and Gionta on the PP in OT. Why did he not send out DD, MaxPAc and Cole together with either Subban or Weber. That line was on all night. I always respected Martin, I mean after all you don’t coach over 1000 games in the NHL if you are not a decent coach. But personally I think his time with the Habs is done. Also, what in the blue hell is wrong with Gionta. The story on Gomez is a broken record but man Gionta has been absolutely awful.
C’est le but!
MAKE A FREAKIN’ SAVE NOW AND THEN WILL YA! Will someone kindly tell him to use his massive body IN FRONT OF THE CREASE, and stop trying to glove shots while back in the paint & on his knees. Bail us out just once will ya. Oh, of course..Carey had no chance on the goals. Funny how other goalies actually stop some of those great chances. Not our Franchise guy. ha, ha, ha.
We will NEVER win anything with Martin, Gauthier and Price. No Cole on the PP in overtime??? Gomez??? Lord help us all.
i bet carey would have stopped plek.
yup, it’s all his fault, give me a break!!!!
don’t you worry NSV, price will leave this mess as soon as he can and make you eat your words….. probably with the leafs.
Bite your tongue!
Sorry, but Carey wasn’t responsible for 5 Habs backing up into him throughout the third as the Habs played the patented JM “form a human pyramid in front of our goal whenever we have the lead” system.
In the shoot-out however…. Sigh.
Carey Price didn’t lose this
Neither did Gomez, Gorges or any player with a CH on his chest.
This loss as always is due to irresponsible stubborn coaching that will continue to ruin Montreal until someone has enough Billy Beane to do something about it.
At this point, its not even language … anyone would do.
they are all playing scared out there other than cole. we need some muscle but wont get it and continue to be a less than average team. how long do you think it will take for markov to go down again after he comes back. ill bet the first game against boston. carey better keep his head up too.
Dude. Express your frustration but clean up your language. There are kids on this site.
*Listen to my instrumental tribute entitled “Habs at War” at http://web.me.com/ptolias/Music/OtherOriginalMusic.html
Am I alone in knowing we have a jerk behind the bench!!!!
Plekanic was on the ice nearly 30 minutes. Played on every power play, and made it look like a midget team. He played on every penalty kill, played three times the shifts of any other center 5 on 5.
He played 4 min. of the overtime. And he shot first in the shoot out. Or should I say he coasted up to the goal.
He has not got a goal playing that much ice time in many games, and he is our best player. He will be burnt out for the rest of the season soon. Not his fault that he has a fool for a coach!!
Pleks played just under 25 minuts tonight Ian. Issue is not that he was tired when sent to the shootout but that is not nearly his talent, 3 for 20 on his career shootout stats now!
PP placement is a major mistake by JM though, as was sending him out on the shootout.
I don’t know what Cole’s shoot-out history is but the man was having a helluva game tonight. Why not put him out there?
No Ian. You are not alone. I have been calling out this coach from the middle of his first season. He should be fired or promoted to an executive position where he is away from players and the ice.
Ian we all agree … this should be the last straw for Martin
I expect him to start in goal anytime soon since he is expected to do everything else.
No you are NOT…. heck why bother?? … sorry Ian I am angered out. It’s no use.
I wonder what Budaj’s record is in the shoot-out. Because I have zero confidence in Carey when it’s one on one.
How BAD are the Phoenix Coyotes? Carrie Price + Overtime Game=Guaranteed Loss.
Carey used to be great in the shoot outs
All we needed tonight or for any night for that mater is a Powerplay that is working efficiently. If we would have had a decent PP then these games would not get to OT. But this defensive shell has got to go. Montreal is the only team that I see that plays this way.
To you from failing hands we throw the torch, be yours to hold it high.
JM plays not to lose. And yet still manages it. Oh, the irony.
Was Cole just a case of carelessness in toppling over Enroth in his crease in OT? lol Buffalo is still smarting from their last incident
My main question is with 5 seconds left in overtime, why wouldn’t you have your absolute best faceoff guy out there? Pleks was only 35% tonight.
Chuck, in more than 60 years watching our Hab’s, I have never seen such a fool behind the bench. We have to get rid of this jackass now!
He’s no Irvin, that’s for sure!
Pleks NEVER wins an important face-off late in a close game.
The Habs had this game. No question they deserved to win and score two points. Sorry, but Price is faulted on one or two SO goals. I mean come on, a major deke made Carey look very bad and as a young netminder he continues to make mistakes. The Habs need to compete above 500. Yes they have struggled but they need to amass points and climb in the standings. Many players know Price’s style and his SO record is not good! Wake up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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.
The book on Price on a shootout/breakaway has been out for a LONG time. Wait till Price goes down (which usually happens as soon as puck carrier crosses centre ice redline) then either deke him,or shoot upstairs.
How can you deke a goalie who’s already down?
EASY to deke a goalie who’s already down..goalie can’t move very well when he’s on his knees.
My point is, to deke a goalie you’ve got to get him to move… which probably won ‘t happen if he’s lying on the ice.
Actually..a goalie who’s down can move..but not particularly well. Therein lies the problem.
You guys are going to keep the mods busy
1. JM sucks for having the team go in a shell.
2. Price sucks on breakaways (but I still uv ya)
3. How do you lose a 2-0 game on home ice with 20 minutes left to get over 500 for the first time all season?
4. NO shots in the first 15 mins. or so of the 3rd? Really? Embarrassing.
The Scott Gomez line………..where wingers go to die.
i couldn’t help but notice how much gionta is struggling… i think he was the one person i found myself screaming at this game he fanned on 3 shots… at least that i saw. 2 of those fans would have been easy goals… and that is causing pleks to struggle to and having moen on that line didn’t do much either… they REALLY need some of the injured players back so far they are at 73 games worth of injuries which is insane… and most of them have been to key players minus gomer and white and now spacek and engvist (sp?) got injured and you noticed it. my main question is WHY put gionta in the shootout? he was AWFUL with his shots. they would have lost either way but still…
“Don’t get me wrong, I have all the respect in the world for them. They have good players and they’re good at what they do. But playing against them is so boring. They should have to pay for coffee for our fans to help them stay awake.” Higgins (I’m paraphrasing), on the NJ Devils.
I agree re: Gionta in the shootout. Talk about putting a guy in a position to fail. Why not someone who had a hot hand tonight, a little jump in their game?
Wow…what a bunch of whiners on this site.
We are not winning Peter, we know the game and we know we have a complete fool for a coach, that’s all.
I don’t know why, but JM must have an hardon for Pleks in the shootout. He is 1 for 14 career and 0 for 1 this season, make it 0 for 2 now. He has nothing with regards in a move. I think he panics and freezes up. That shot tonight if you want to call it that was a move lose puck and hope for the best.
Why not use Cole, he had a good night, even DD anyone but F&^king Plekanec on the shootout. Nothing against Pleks it’s just he can’t shoot sh!t in a shootout.
Reason PLEKS is not good on the shootout is the same reason he is not good on the PP (which I said the minute it was suggested. Pleks is a hard industrious player with not very inventive skills. Too bad JM is making PLEKS look bad because PLEKS, used properly, is absolutely an awesome team player.
Yes your right Pleks when used properly is an awesome player. It’s just a shootout is not his forte.
It was more important to make sure Cole learned a lesson than to win two points – so I put Gionta in the shootout.
I felt that a two goal lead was enough to get us to overtime and get one point – so I made sure we didnt give any effort in either end for the rest of the game. Including the overtime period and any powerplays we had.
I felt we sealed the deal when we finally made it to overtime.
There were many positives and I felt our effort level over the first 40 minutes will help slightly improve our clubs performance in the future against other bubble teams.
Blame the goalie, yawn.
How about a lousy PP, and who in their right mind would put Pleks and Gionta in the shootout, instead of Cole, PK, DD, etc.
True dat LL. We are doomed with this coach!
If you were a player which would you prefer to happen in your free agent year?
Signed by your agent on a JM coached team… to play with Gomez.
Or pass a kidney stone.
Gotta love Martin and his prevent defence.
Only thing it prevents is a win!
Players deserve better coaching! When the coach plays the same players over and over all game, leaving fresh young legs on the bench, then plays the same players in the overtime, they have nothing left to give.
This was a coaching loss again. Plekanic played to exhaustion, and stupid Martin even put him in the shoot out.
If I was Molson, Martin would not last another day!
The first half of the game went well, but Martin is a complete fool how he uses his bench. I feel for the players, having to play for such a idiot as Martin.
Exactly my thought Ian.. must drain a player’s zeal for the game to go through this game after game.
Jacques Martin is an automatic loss in the Shootout, sends out the wrong personnel every time.
Who would you send? The cupboard isn’t exactly stocked with breakaway specialists.
Pacioretty, Cole, Desharnais, Pacioretty as we can see can nail it, Cole had a great game and Desharnais had some good goals in the AHL and went 1 for 2 last year in it with MTL last year. Or try Subban, the super-dynamic skater whose highlight reel features the Jokinen/Forsberg super-drag.
Fair enough. It couldn’t have gone worse.
Darche, Moen & Diaz obviously.
Yeah, J-Mart can take some blame for this one. How about Another sad night for PP? That 4-3 to end OT was sad. They are lost out there.
so Jacques, how’s the passive resistance style going?
just keep playing 1970’s hockey, and you’ll continue to lose!
Jacques Martin= LOSER! ALWAYS!
Plekanec, is he still the scapegoat? He sucks right?
Price, will he stop a shot in the SO this year?
Budaj, why didn’t he get a chance to play back to back after a strong performance?
Gionta, is he just another Gomez in a smaller package?
Pacioretty, will he ask for a trade come deadline?
Ahhhhh, who gives a s__t, obviously your Canadiens don’t.
Yeah this game is all on Price right. Shake your head Man!
“If you’re not first, you’re last”
Sarcasm Dean, you are giving us Newfies a bad name by being as stunned as me arse!
Always nice to see you posting. Funny how it’s never after the Habs win.
Whoah, I do.
Seriously give your head a shake, can you smell the sarcasm? Pleks is my fav player (read my profile), Price has kept this team in it, he never the lost the game, it should NEVER have gone to a shootout.
Budaj SHOULD have a chance to play more games
Gionta SHOULD be scoring more goals, he plays his ass off, but comes up bupkis.
Pacioretty, that one was a joke. He is great, I just hope he stays despite JM.
Some people need to seriously lighten the frig up!
Martin is WAY beyond patehtic.
When was the last time that Pleks & Gionta scored in a shootout?
I am so sick of JM coaching this team.
“could care less” = you actually do care.
…and on top of it I had to watch NBC VS. and Milberry. Sickening. It’s like the Canadiens weren’t even on the ice. No mention of anything that they did. Ghosts and that is what we will continue to be until we can score, hit and save shots…. Pathetic!
Promote the Youth, Support From The Veterans and Remember the Heritage!
JM you got some xplaineeeng to do!
How come Eller 11plus mins and Gomez 18 plus minutes? If it werent for Eller you wouldnt have a job today JM.
And Pleks. Come on JM… apart from being so obtus eyou cant see that he is not a PP points man… why ar eyou killing this guy. Have you noticed JM.. he has lost all zip for over a while now?
Doesn’t JM have Plek’s shootout stats in his notepad? Now 3 for 20 in his career. And the first shooter every time. Wouldn’t PK be a pretty obvious choice?
I know, right? If that’s not written there, then what you are writing is worthless. Also, maybe screw “historically”, who is playing well TONIGHT?
I am really hoping JM is fired by the time I get to Montreal Friday night for the Summit!
Now that I like! RUDY!
Put Budaj in net for shootouts,yikes!
Buffalo simply imposed their will in the third. Wow. They looked like a different team out there. Hell of an eventful game.
Price sh-out record now 13-15.
This game should have never gotten to a shoot out.
Well, Carey’s good and pissed. Hopefully that translates to the rest of the team.
Hopefully we don’t miss the playoffs by one point.
I think it does. Most of the guys are hard on themselves they don’t need others to be also. Price wants to win like the rest. Some emotion to carry over for next game!
hey, got a point and blah, no one needs to be upset. maybe carey, but its not about this game. in game he is money, shootout, loose change. weve lost too many points on his shoot out skills. tonight he showed he knows it.
It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.
It’s something to work on I guess!
Nice Mandela quote
aye, and there is always work to be done.
Will the Coach Martin comments please stop. When you have Markov, Squid, AK, Gill and now Spatch missing. Thats almost 20 million of the 65 million the entire team costs. I bow to him for even being anywhere close to a 500 team.
And also, who are you going to replace him with?
The RDS cast?
something with as pulse
No worries Carey!
Relax with the “disgusting”
We played a good two periods and a bad third. 1 point, we’ll re-focus for wednesday! Can’t win em all.
I wonder if some of you are so negative in the other parts of your life. I don’t know how you get by.
great to see carey mad at himself for loosing yet another shootout. maybe now he might get better
I’m pretty sure that his anger was directed at the entire team’s effort in the third period, and not just himself.
naw..not how i see it
Anyone know Prices all time Shootout record?
Going in it was 13-14. make it 13-15 now. I don’t know about anyone else, but Price seems to always seem really not interested in a shootout and he could care less. His body language says it all. He just slumps and is not quick at all.
Go check out some of his shootout highlights on youtube to alter your assessment.
13-15 would be the game record, but im more interested in how many shots and saves. I dont think its as good or as a close to 50% as the game record would be.
yeah. piss pore.
price 0, floppy donkey meat…all over his face

Do you agree with Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin's decision to stick with a defence-first identity?
