You are here: Home » News » Liveblog: Max-Pac wins it in OT
For the second game in a row, the Canadiens win an overtime game on the road.
The hero in Nashville was Max Pacioretty.
A HUGE morale booster.
If only the Wolverine didn’t get hurt last season!
“If your not first, your last”
So nice to WIN another one on the road in OT!!!
Kudos to the kids for getting the goals. Desharnais with the nifty move and Pac with laser-like precision. Rinne did look a bit awkward on that goal which makes me think he was not quite set properly. It went over his shoulder but under the crossbar. Pax did an impressive job of receiving the puck and getting a quick wrister. Nice work by PK protecting the puck at the blue line and going into the slot and fooling everyone except Pax with the pass.
it was nice to see desharnais, pax, subban & gorges on for the winning ot goal. A nice set of young players right there.
Shortie against the Habs AGAIN…how exactly does Nashville with one player less mange to get Weber totally open in prime shooting position? Gomez was the closest Hab to Weber but not close enough to do anything. How can this disorganized power play continue to persist?
So while many here choose to continue to harp about the loss of McDonough in that trade for someone, I prefer the harp sound of the trade that got us Gorges and a 1st rnd. pick name Max Pacioretty.
Max’s goal went in off a Preds high stick! Bout time we had some luck!
so glad Gomez is back. he was his usual tonight. no points, minus 1.
As i posted earlier pk is the type of d you have to have to become an elite team…gomez just passes to the front of the net but has no idea to who…eller needs a little stay in hamilton to get some scoring confidence unless we are satisfied with a 6 goal season from him….
WOW what a shot by Wolverine, an absolute thing of beauty.
On another positive note, I am glad to see that SKost had about as much impact on this game as his big brother.
Fate leads the willing, and drags along the reluctant.
it deflected off a D’s stick
Whats the over/under on 2-1 wins this season?
PK play smart. But do NOT tone it down.
“Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”
Looks like two good games for Budaj, steps up whenever he is called upon.
Habs are lucky that the Preds couldn’t convert that Gomez pass. What is it with Gomez throwing the puck out from behind the net that always turns into a scoring chance at the other end.
It’s his Patented Passes to Nobody®
Ha Ha Scott Gomez, Sean Avery has more goals than him, embarrassing
“It’s not an obsession, It’s a way of life..”
Thanks Max. No thanks to Gomez lol
That OT winner was the tipping point. I will now go in and make Max Pacioretty my new favorite Hab on HIO profile. (Huge, I know)
Is it going too far saying he’s the best player on the team? If so, then I’m certain he will be considered the best by this time next year. What a shot.
Not just that. He made a great individual effort to keep the puck in and cycled it. Then PK took over and made an equally amazing individual effort only to pass it back to Max who made a wicked wrister top shelf. Goal scorers goal.
the puck was tipped. wasn’t a great shot.
if it waswn’t tipped, easy save by the greatest goalie in the NHL, Rinne!
awwwww,does the little baby need a tissue?
who cares if it was tipped, it went in, sucks to be you eh
Yup. I could go on and on about his play. He does everything well. Every play he makes has a purpose and usually accomplishes something. He’s very smart, and his skills have developed at an unbelievable rate the last year. I never remember him having a shot like that in his early years. He obviously worked very hard on his game after having some disappointment early in his career, and it’s paying dividends now.
Plekanec is best right now
I was just muttering about Max doing SFA for the past while and he picks the corner in OT.
Have you noticed how well Gill is playing – in addition to his shot blocking prowess he has lugged the puck up ice on the PK, and has been shooting more. Not necessarily effectively, but we are sure getting a lot out of him.
How bad can Enqvist be when Nokilainen is playing. An absolute absence of any offense. Yes a 4th liner, but man.
Yeah he seems a lot more confident handling the puck and skating with it.
A sweet road win against a good team.
I hate to be churlish given the win, but Gomez again almost cost the team the win. He is such an assh*le with those blind passes that end up being dangerous offensive turnovers. What a useless prick.
Can’t agree. I thought he looked good and brought the ability to bring the puck up ice – something we’ve been missing.
So we won because of Gomez, because the Habs have been “missing something?”
Gomez haters have blinders on
Please allow me to retort.
Gomez lovers must be idiots.
some don’t love or hate……not everyone thinks in extremes
Please allow me to retort: I’m surprised your posts don’t come out in crayon.
You´re right. These blind passes are a joke. Completely unnecessary. Shot the puck or play it behind the net but don´t create turnovers over and over again. I´ve already accepted his inability to score goals but these passes are just dumb. Young players get benched for these kind of plays…
Very happy with the win though. 6 wins in the last 8 games and I´d be tempted not to count the loss in MSG.
That’s the spirit….win or lose, sh#t on Gomez. I wonder if any Pred players made any errors?? Naw…
I stand corrected now.
Gomez is a great player. I wish the team had a machine that replicated Scott Gomezes so we could have more of them.
Aw now you just blew it! I was giving you props for sticking to your guns win or lose….
Fantastic shot by Patches. Great vision from PK. Big props to Budaj for a heck of a backup performance. Always great when you get to celebrate a win on a Saturday night!
Budaj was a monster in nets tonight.
The Laffs need a Monster in net. 🙂
Clutch in Overtime!!! just 8 shy of the 93 record!!
I’m starting to like this overtime stuff.
Thank goodness that another short-handed goal didn’t come back to bite us in the ass.
I love watching the Leafs fall in Autumn.
Soobs is a possession beast.
Own goal in T.O.
I thought it was the prettiest goal TO scored. Am surprised Ron didn’t announce McArther (sp) as the 3rd star. I also like when Soobs brushes someone away with his left forearm as thow they were a wayward branch. Possession beast.
No answers, just opinions. Bite me. Och.
Haha and Toronto loses, scoring the second empty netter of the game themselves.
The universe is unfolding as it should
LMFAO macarthur puts a goal in his own net from about 180 feet away with the leaf goalie pulled.
Nice shot Pach’s and good game Budaj!!
Gotta love the excitement on the celly. PK loves scoring goals and setting up winners more than anyone and it shows.
You’re a good guy Budaj!
and now I get to see Ottawa beat Toronto? SWEET!!
I must say that Budaj was good tonight!
Nice shot by maxpac but that goal was on rinne. He was really deep in his net and gave away the top corner.
He was deep in his net BUT there was not much to shoot at!
MaxPac and Moen
are two 30 goal scorers this season!
Miracle!! Two great individual efforts by subban and pac~.
2 posts hit on the same shot….but a lucky bounce for once!
Man, JM sucks………another boring WIN. Wish we had a coach like Trotz on the losing team!
I know right!
who wants a winning record … 500 is so much better!
sorry for the win…must be a pisser on your night
laser beam…Max !!
take your drink to the end of the bar,buddy…come on now, don’t be a fool…
Max could be my favorite Hab
max and PK…yessss
second place is just the first loser
Another very very close game, could have gone either way. Thanks to Pacioretty and PK. PK the guy who’s been OK supposedly. lol whatever. He played solid even though he was run in various times and given a ghost penalty.
There you go whiners and complainers……4 out of 4 points….
I seem to remember a lot of them saying there would be 0 points on this trip.
They’ll still find something to bitch about
Another win , STILL FIRE JM
Thanks for coming by!
Budaj > Rinne
Two great individual efforts. Pacioretty, Subban, Desharnais, Gorges on the ice for that.
That was gorgeous !!!!!!!!!!
Open-mindedness is not a skull fracture
LEADING SCORER WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
Subbie to Patchy, SWEET!!
Whoa. What a shot.
Gomez. Haha. Hilarious.
Gomez with another signature pass…
I wish Cammy would hit the net once in awhile
Cole needed to onetime that shot. Too much time for the goalie to recover.
All the fans in Nashville just witnessed JM in action that period … shell shocked in bordem … at least we can switch to the Stanford.Oregon game
It’s called a “one timer” – not a “Cambrian to Jurrasic timer”.
Budaj for two years 2.3M not a bad signing at all.
Not big or gritty enough. In my humble opinion.
Actually he is. Bigger than Halak. Grittier too.
C’mon Gorges…..Work your OT magic again….
If we win this, I’ll laugh.
Goal aside… Des is Gomezing.
My Gawd the Habs are terrible 10 ft away from the blue paint!
JM will be pissed at DD for not playing for the tie..
shame on him 😉
Yep…..a sure 3 out of 4 points…
“They’re booing the Leafs in Toronto”
Don’t worry, they’re booing the Habs in MTL too. We just don’t hear it… sort of like that “tree falling in the forest”…
“Gomez tried the centering pass. Doesn’t get through…” sigh.
Liking the Nashville fans – Toronto supporters should take a lesson.
Another squeeker. JM is in heaven!
Christ. Budaj was winking at his Momma. What was that?
Good thing Budaj was alert on that one.
It’s breakdown’s like that last one that kill me. It’s as if the string of puck responsibilty by each player gets back logged and no one picks up the play.
4th line been doing OK
Hall playing well..
Budaj is playing solid
Yikes crazy bounce!
If Nashville is so well coached and have Lil Tits and Webber why is the score 1-1?? With JM and all his poor decisions, why arent Habs being blown out??
I think Boone is JM;s dad or something, he only EVER calls out the young guys, He mentioned Eller, Max Pac, PK. You know there are alot of vets that suck tonigh ttoo right?
good job Boodie, keep up the good work buddy!
Probably Gill’s best game this season
Budaj has been sharp. Very sharp.
Nice alert save.
