First blood!


A shutout for Carey “Jaro Halak” Price.

Two goals for Brian Gionta.

Two assists for Scott Gomez.

Brilliant game plan, executed to perfection.

GREAT start

    thomas does not look like a vezina/hart winner. the moment we get a chance its 2-0

  2. PrimeTime says:

    This new generation of B fans are so ignorant. Darche falls and they cheer a big hit???

    Pyatt Eller Moen doing great things


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

  4. Wow, the neutral zone is clogged amazingly right now by the road team.

  5. Bill says:

    Darche is tough, eh?

    A slight breeze knocks Pou Pou down.

  7. cmaddy says:

    Let’s GO. gotta get some shots on TT

  8. Keith says:

    Stick broke on the wind-up on Plek lol!

  9. Bill says:

    Pouliot literally cannot stay on his feet.

  10. zozotheclown says:

    Why must Pouliot fall even on simple tight turns

  11. RGM says:

    Hopefully Habs get some momentum going and decide to play offence for a bit.

    Carey Price is All Hart!
    Go Habs Go!

    gomez is buzzing…fn right!!!

  13. JIMVINNY says:

    Not what I meant when I asked them To put the puck in the back of the net.

  14. _Habsoloutly_ says:

    Eventually our PP is gonna click, right?

  15. Muckbringer says:

    this whole series is for maxfactor….go habs go!!!

  20. NorthernHab says:

    Yeah, two will be plenty

  21. Danno says:

    New HIO blog format clearly inferior to what we had before


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

  22. NorthernHab says:

    One goal will be enough.

  23. mrgordon says:

    Chips, dip, and beer are helping with the nerves. Gomez has been good!

  24. Keith says:

    Super tight d played in the playoffs, low scores.

  25. Can’t believe how little scoring there’s been in the playoff so far. Goalies and defense ruling the day.

  26. HotHabs says:

    Still no score Buf – Phi

  27. Bill says:

    Outshot 26-14, good Lord. Powerplay to start the third, this is their chance to get some breathing room before the onslaught resumes.

    I hate to mention it but the Bruins – and specifically Marchand – have scored a lot of short-handed goals this year …

  28. habs001 says:

    a pp goal at the start of the third would be nice…it would be nice to get a goal from an unexpected source…what a big difference another d that can move the puck like markov would make…

  29. NorthernHab says:

    Living large in the third period. Life is great.

  30. Muckbringer says:

    it goes back to cro magnon vs neanderthal. show them fire and breed them out

  31. punkster says:

    I’d say the Habs are very much up inside those Bruin heads right about now. Most of the Bs shots are from well outside, most are blocked and the threat of a Pleks breakout hangs on every clearing attempt the Habs make.

    Rope-a-dope? Shades of 2010? The Habs are a frustrating team to play against and the Bruins are going to have to try to goon it up if they want to come back. And that’s where it gets real interesting. Do they risk the penalties? I think they will. And I think that will backfire on them.

    I love this edition of the Habs. I loved them in the fall and I love them in the spring.

    ***Subbang Baby!!!***

  32. Jdub1985 says:

    I don’t care how good Halak was or Price is. It is unfair to be this amount of pressure on your goalie. Someone should remind JM that hockey is a team sport that is played 2 ways!

  33. JasonM says:

    Can’t wait for game 3…. we’ll show them who the real fans are!

  34. NorthernHab says:


  35. Jdub1985 says:

    I’m on Percocet and I’m still on edge! Thanks JM

  36. Cookies says:

    Pleks had 2 great scoring chances. One even on the PK.

    I like the way things are going. Frustration is developing. 🙂

  37. since1988 says:

    I thought Halak was shorter

  38. since1988 says:

    I swear Halak was shorter

  39. habsfaninboston says:

    Man they’re standing around a lot. Are they gassed already? They’ve got to pick it up. A pp goal to start the 3rd will demoralize the B’s.

  40. SOSOHABS says:

    This game is making me do some cardio workout while sitting on my sofa…how much can a heart take during a rivalry game like that…


  41. Jdub1985 says:

    Alright … we’ve survived 40 … but do we have to SURVIVE? I don’t care what happened last spring … does JM really think allowing the Bruins 25 shots is the best way to play the final frame? seriously? Let them play … the Bruins can’t score from their OWN zone! Play some Goddamn offence … maybe they’ll make it a 2 or 3 goal lead!

  42. Bill says:

    This series was (very stupidly) billed as speed vs size.

    Well the Bruins look twice as fast as the Habs. And seemingly all of their passes connect. I know the Bruins are adrenaline-rushing from the home crowd and being down 1-0, but there’s no reason for the Habs to be this bad.

  43. RGM says:

    40 down – hopefully a PPG to start the third.

    Carey Price is All Hart!
    Go Habs Go!

  44. JasonM says:

    Keep it up Habs! 20 more minutes!

  45. bel33 says:

    Do I have to mention the blonde behind JM in the Habs jersey… she’s dreamy. 😉 Go Habs!

  46. Propwash says:

    That period nearly gave me a conniption

  47. avatar_58 says:

    Oh my, first he does the Roy hand motion a few seasons ago now he’s doing the wink…

    I love Price 😀

  48. Shiloh says:

    Unreal the number of times they were allowed to cross check Subban. Colon Campbell’s team must be looked after.

  49. 3rd period better be a lot more in their zone.

  50. Your Mom says:

    I would like to say….at the moment I would like to extend a sincere thank you to Thomas Kaberle and Carey Price…

  51. HalifaxHabs says:

    there it is… Marchand will sink the Bruins

    • ffenliv says:

      I’ve always thought he was a Lapierre type of guy: he’ll score some goals, but not a lot, and his penalty-realted decision making will cost the Bs some goals at bad times.

      And if I could, HalifaxHabs: I really am a habs fan. If I could reach into the site logs and dig up my IP, to show that I read the site 10 times a day, I would, but I can’t. I just discovered this site near the end of the playoffs last year, and am just now developing an interest in commenting. There’s nothing like the playoffs to get the blood (or fingers) going.

  52. cmaddy says:

    Nice wink pricey!!!

  53. _Habsoloutly_ says:

    I want Hortons head on a platter. I hated him here in SoFlo, and I hate him now.

  54. habsguru says:

    Have friends that played with and against Marchand. Both say bonified crap sack.

  55. ffenliv says:

    Time for some powerplay magic. Get Cammy out there and have him wire home a one-timer.

  56. Barts says:

    What the hell is Claude Julien complaining about????

  57. JIMVINNY says:

    And the idiot in Marchand comes rushing out.

  58. I_SAY_FIGHT says:

    subban looks slow, yay rat-face gets a penalty.

  59. cmaddy says:

    Go sit a-Hole

  60. JasonM says:

    First dirty hit.

  61. _Habsoloutly_ says:

    Get in the box Marchand, douchebag.

  62. zozotheclown says:

    Good call, would have been livid if they missed that

  63. JIMVINNY says:

    Great save by Sopel.

  64. TOEmastro says:

    Ever since their last Pp it’s been all B’s… Heart can’t take it

  65. Barts says:

    I’m gonna throw up if this continues.

  66. solomio says:

    This is terrible. Habs have stopped playing. WTF!?

  67. zozotheclown says:

    All Boston, we better wake up soon or we’ll lose this

  68. Shiloh says:

    Didn’t Muhammad Ali do this to George Foreman in Zaire?

  69. zak says:

    Out shot 16 to 6

  70. JasonM says:

    Sopel was fantastic there.

  71. Don’t like the trend, enough sitting back.
