  1. habber86 says:

    not hating on price, but did anyone expect him to make a save in the SO tonight?

  2. Bill says:

    WOW. Price really struggled all night, so not surprising. Anyway, glad they got a point, but … how long before something gives?

  3. Mavid says:

    put route planning on hold again…the sky has fallen…again

    second place is just the first loser

  4. OneTimer says:

    The HI/O trolls will crow from their dung hills, but the Habs played better.

  5. zozotheclown says:

    Ouch, those Avs knew what they were doing in shootout though

  6. durocher says:

    Carey, donate those pads now

  7. Propwash says:


  8. vinny says:

    Wow, nice shootout for Price!

  9. punkster says:


    ***Subbang Baby!!!***

  10. Propwash says:

    Stupid crossbar

  11. punkster says:

    Gomez FTW!

    ***Subbang Baby!!!***

  12. king ddd says:

    lovin’ emelin. his cross ice passes reminds me of markov

  13. Danno says:

    Crazy game.

    Who would have predicted a final score of 6-5 with Price and Varlamov in nets?

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

  14. Bill says:

    Haha, you have to know Price isn’t loving this. He knows he’s having one of those nights.

  15. This is the kind of game that’s so enraging. Comes down to chance after it should have been a regulation win but the refs just couldn’t let it go. That Diaz penalty is infuriating after what the refs let go tonight, especially on Gomez at the end of the 3rd and Eller in OT.

  16. Captain aHab says:

    Price, Gill and Budaj for the shootout. JM is thinking defensively.

  17. Propwash says:

    The pucker factor increases tenfold…..

  18. durocher says:

    Solid outing for Emelin and Diaz, not so much for PK and Weber

  19. NLhabsfan says:

    I hate shoot outs

  20. Bill says:

    Hmm. I have no clue who I would put out there.

  21. Duracell3 says:

    Going to be an interesting shootout

    I give the advantage to the Avs though

  22. vinny says:

    Whoa!! Thanks Pleks!!

  23. vinny says:

    Eller has had a good game

  24. Captain aHab says:

    How was that not a penalty? Oh yeah…..NHL…

  25. vinny says:

    Eller tripped no call, brutal!!

  26. showey47 says:

    way to not call the trip on eller

  27. Mavid says:

    no Bob there will be no penalty on the Avalanche…the Sens lost…again…wonderful…

    second place is just the first loser

  28. Captain aHab says:

    So Gomez, Gio, Moen: highest paid 3rd line in the league?

  29. vinny says:

    Ya but at least Gomez is cheap!

  30. HabinBurlington says:

    Nice patience from emelin

  31. Bill says:

    Once again … I hate this OT 4-on-4 BS! Why can’t they just play hockey?

  32. vinny says:

    Pleks Cole & DD for shootout

  33. RJB says:

    This game has been so much fun

  34. topher5468 says:

    Gomez is just futile

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

  35. vinny says:

    1 point in the bag

  36. DEANDALLEY says:

    If this should go to a shootout, we may be Pucked!

    paying fans getting their $ worth tonite

  38. mdl says:

    Exciting game.
    Love the DD-MaxPac-AK Line
    D is really weak but maybe they will learn?

  39. Captain aHab says:

    I’m liking Emelin tonight. He’s been making solid plays.

  40. Bill says:

    The old JM “lead protection” scheme caught up with us again tonight.

  41. vinny says:

    Leafs and Habs will be playing for 10th this season

  42. So Diaz breathes on a guy and gets called, Gomez gets hooked to death twice and no call. Sounds about right.

  43. Propwash says:

    Must get a fresh beer…..can’t get off of edge of seat……

  44. Bill says:

    To be fair to Gomez, he gets mugged out there and no call.

  45. 1010 says:

    Yeah I’m one of those conspiracy guys: The refs will never let this team gain any momentum.

    GO HABS…

  46. Bill says:

    I’m hoping for an OT win … for the Habs just to be clear to the karma gods.

  47. LL says:

    Lamest comment by far.

  48. JayBee says:

    We only have 2 vets on D….this kind of display should be expected. You can blame your buddy PG for that.

  49. HabinBurlington says:

    Is the Hal Gill snow angel a popular dance at the clubs in mtl?

  50. LL says:

    Dooooooooomed™ (P-Wash)

  51. NLhabsfan says:

    I can’t believe that was a penalty!!!

  52. Bill says:

    The Avs have been super lucky with their shot placement all night. Just my opinion, I don’t think Price has looked THAT bad …

  53. zozotheclown says:

    Moen covered the wrong guy… whats with this teams D, we’re covering wrong people all the time, this isn’t peewee

  54. durocher says:

    I dont know what PK was doing on that PK — he was out of shape, causing Gill to move over, causing Moen to move down, and Moen’s guy was wide open

  55. Bill says:

    Wow there it is.

  56. DEANDALLEY says:

    pucking great

    “Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing”

  57. Propwash says:

    Great timing to do that Diaz……

  58. Bill says:

    And my RDS HD is back up at last … screw you Rogers, I’m gone.

  59. Mavid says:

  61. Mavid says:

    I think the parade route should start at the Forum..snake its way to the Bell Center? Agree?

    second place is just the first loser

  62. Propwash says:

    So, lack of scoring punch is in the lead in the poll so far…….

  63. Danno says:


    Back to planning the parade.


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

  64. vinny says:

    The HIO score updates are super slow tonight!!

  65. Danno says:


    Then Wee Dee Dee score in less than one minute!

    5-4 Habs!


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

  66. topher5468 says:

    What a pass by AK through the legs

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

  67. Bill says:

    Will JM now have them sit back? Count on it. Prepare yourselves for a bumpy ride …

  68. Jbird says:

    I love the Habs. Loving that line!!

    And Cole seems to not be mad at JM anymore 😉

  69. durocher says:

    Max Power and DD recreating their Hamilton magic. Me likey

  70. vinny says:

    Free wings:)

  71. HabinBurlington says:

    How come JM was only told today that MaxPac ands DD played together in Hamilton?

  72. olematelot says:
