    I knew Pk would get this sometime! Just needed one sleppy team to pounce on. Minny was the worst opposition the “Habs’” Faced tonight. I love PK but to me Ryan White set the tone of the game.

    geee bt the posting is faster isn’t it???

  3. WestHab says:

    bONNE ENJOY THE HIGHER profile. maybe you need to do a refresh on you avatar like i did.

  4. JD_ says:

    I’m gonna go out on a limb here and modestly suggest the chance that Soobs may potentially one day possibly become a somewhat quasi-legitimate pro hockey player.

    Maybe.

    The only problem, of course, is one may have to sit through another one of these truly uppity and disrespectful hatties.

  5. HUDSONHAB says:

    1 point behind Booins (2gms in hand).
    Sabres, Booins, Caps. Tell tale week.

  6. Rugger says:

    My first reaction during PK’s Loop d’ loop goal was WTF are you doing? What an incredable goal.

  7. fun police says:

    “prediction, auld will have to steal this one” another boone reverse jink!

  8. Willy the bum says:

    Only sucks about this game is that the Habs are 2 goals short of getting us another serving of chicken wings!

  9. Ian Cobb says:

    Giving PK my spaghetti supers has finally paid off. He is the next Bobby Orr that I have told you all before. And he has a lot more that you have not seen yet.

    This new site is fantastic now, I was totally out of line with my frustration! HIO 8 to 1, your the very best.!

    Nice to give the edge of my seat a rest tonight.

  10. MD says:

    Damn, youtubing “Stoner hit…” is not returning hockey-related videos at all.

  11. ooder says:

    ohhhhh mama… what a game..
    feel bad for minny and loved cbc ripping clutterbuck and stoner a new one

  12. longtimehabsfan says:

    Okay, the new website is officially freaking me out.

  13. smiler2729 says:

    Remember when Jose Theodore was poised to become the next Patrick Brodeur??

  14. sidhu says:

    Great game — PK hatty, White played well all around. My favorite moment: when White and Mara challenged Clutterbuck. We should re-sign Mara, he’s been solid since he came back, and he should be an affordable #6.

  15. habs-hampton says:

    Wait for the rest of the “hockey experts” trash PK for disrespecting the Wild by running up the score.

  16. Danno says:

    White with a Gordie Howe hat trick.
    PK with a real hat trick
    Auld being a wall
    8 big goals and no let up.
    What a sweet win.

  17. NoTinFoilCups says:

    The passing was so nice to watch during this game. Towards the end they started missing some low percentage stretch stuff but that was perfectly understandable given the score. I love the way they kept the offense going rather than falling back into a shell. I give credit to our younger, hungrier players. We need our vets to step up for the playoffs. Cammy looks like whatever was bugging him physically has passed. Gomer made some nice passes and Gionta played his usual solid game. Let’s shoot for 3rd or 4th place! Get well Pleks, Patches, Spatch and Sopel!

    • habstrinifan says:

      I only had opportunity to see first 15 mins or so of first period before I had to leave .. I thought after the second goal they did let up. I rememebr being pissed at them for allowing a team like Minny to dominate for stretches after the 2nd goal. Obviously I missed the funnest part of the game since I had to leave. LOL.

  18. temekuhabs says:

    Good for “Les Boys” to administer a good old fashioned ass-kicking!

  19. Keith says:

    Eat it CBC! Ya douches!

  20. Spartan117 says:

    “Its all Clutterbuck’s fault”

  21. Keith says:

    Up yours Don Cherry and Death to Matt Cooke! Boone, that’s my new rallying cry!

  22. topher5468 says:

    All of Boone’s pre game thoughts and predictions were wrong, Way to go boone, the ultimate reverse jinx

    ” Its not an obession, Its a way of life”

  23. Mr. Biter says:

    Hell has frozen over (Toronto). Pyatt & White both score and we score 8. Time for a drink and a nice cigar.

  24. PrimeTime says:

    Even when PJ Stock in trying to be complimentary he’s still an a**

  25. novahab says:

    So Don Cherry are you saying someone is going to get PK or are you wishing out loud someone gets him. Worst, is Cherry tring to get PK hurt and he putting a hit out on him.

  26. longtimehabsfan says:

    The NHL schedule giveth and the NHL schedule taketh. Friday the Habs were the tired team against a rested team. Tonight the opposite.

    I don’t want to take away from a total team effort but this game was over before it began.

    Players I liked: Auld, Cammy, AK46 and all the young guys.

  27. Spartan117 says:

    CBC being reasonable tonight.

  28. Jdub1985 says:

    Montreal (3) vs Boston (6)

    you heard it first here.

  29. Danno says:

    Calder Trophy performance by PK tonight

  30. novahab says:

    The problem with the PP is the same problem they have suffered with for the last Two years. They can’t pass or recieve a pass. I don’t know how any coach of a NHL team can watch this for two years and not drill them till they drop on picking up and making a pass.

  31. DearyLeary says:

    Don’s gonna rip PK for being too cocky again. Rookies aren’t allowed to score hat tricks.

  32. Jdub1985 says:

    SUBBAN
    WHITE
    AULD

    That late whistle was ridiculous (should have never stalled that long) But at the end of the day the SO was Auld’s to save 1 on 1. (anyone catch Price smirking – I’m sure there’s a little competition between teammates)

    I can’t remember the last time we had 8 goals – but its something given the amount of speed and talent we should see more often then not.

    I give props to JM for finally letting some offensive action – our PK was inpenitratable, but the one thing that cannot be overlooked is how lost our PP is. Yes Subban converted one – but not converting a 5 on 3, giving up 2 on 1s and scoing chances and not being able to set up and stabilize until 20 clicks are left will kill us under any other circumstances.

    Our 5 on 5 is finally at its pinnacle – something a lot more important than an impotent powerplay – which is very unlike the Habs of the last 5 years.

  33. Danno says:

    Hey we’re only one point back of Boston!

  34. Statement game from Pouliot.

  35. Shiloh says:

    I could have had 4 tickets for this game – but would be looking at a 5-hr drive through freezing rain/sleet to get home. Lots of company, though – a couple of hundred from here to see Alex Auld and Tommy Pyatt do their hometown proud.

  36. punkster says:

    Great win.

  37. Propwash says:

    Auld deserved a star

  38. Danno says:

    PK Auld White three stars?

  39. novahab says:

    Bottom line when the other team isn’t given every advantage by the refs and the other team is not allowed to get away with murder this is whats happens. Also Miinny was tired and I don’t think they really cared they know they are out of the playoffs.

  40. Iceberg84 says:

    Other than a game in 2008 against Boston in which the habs won 8-2, there hasn’t been a Canadiens game this lopsided in well over a decade. I took a quick look and couldn’t find a higher scoring game for the habs as of the 1999-2000 season when I stopped searching. Since then, they’ve scored 6 goals a number of times, 7 a few times but they’ve only scored 8 tonight and on Jan 22, 2008. I’d be curious to know the last time they scored 8 or more goals prior to that 2008 game if anyone else wants to keep looking. This is clearly the most lopsided game for the habs in at least a decade. Fantastic! If only they had played this game against the Rangers :)

  41. thebigguy says:

    The only folk who havent’ been on the ice for goals are Carey Price, Nigel Dawes and Jacques Martin!

  42. I_SAY_FIGHT says:

    habs win by another touchdown

  43. J.J. of Turku says:

    Now it’s time for Minny to pull the “goalie” out!

  44. habsfansince91 says:

    good way to rebound from the game against the rangers

  45. JasonM says:

    Random music going on… lol

  46. Wayne says:

    Get Barry manilow out of the booth…

  47. Jdub1985 says:

    I don’t care if we’re winning 15 – 1 …. the PP is atrocious

  48. Bugs says:

    Nuke Paloosh! How can you miss that?! That was your moment!

  49. Wayne says:

    I wouldn’t mind going into double digits on the scoresheet.

  50. HabFanSince72 says:

    So it is almost certain that we will meet the Bruins in the first round.

    We are unlikely to catch Tampa or Pitt, but might catch Boston.

    so we will either finish 3rd or 6th, and Boston will therefore also finish 3rd or 6th.

  51. sp00k says:

    Do these guys even practice the PP?

  52. PrimeTime says:

    How this team has competed so well this year is amazing! If they can catch BOS maybe JM gets the Jack Adams??

  53. Chuck Chuck Goose says:

    New sniper Pyatt on the PP

  54. showey47 says:

    come on jacques put your depth players out there instead of the PP guys,nevermind i just say pyatt

  55. J.J. of Turku says:

    Hope PK gets one more.

  56. novahab says:

    Well lets hope we get some players back for Buffalo we will need them. White is a keeper and PG and JM better leave him in the line up.

  57. Robert L says:

    I haven’t seen tenacity like this since the All-Star Game. :)

  58. showey47 says:

    come on jacques put your depth players out there instead of the PP guys.

  59. I_SAY_FIGHT says:

    When’s the last time a dman scored 4?

  60. Robert L says:

    Did Pierre Houde say the call was to Benny for diving?

  61. kevin m says:

    2 more for P.K. would be the icing on the cake

  62. Jdub1985 says:

    For those of you that called the 4 – 1 W vs Beantown a blowout.

    ah no … 8 – 1 is a BLOWOUT – which is what should be done everytime the Habs go into a 3rd period of a decided game!

  63. novahab says:

    I use to think maybe Bob Cole was getting old but I think he just drunk and doesn’t give a %^$#.

  64. Bugs says:

    Notice how Poolio has been drawin the calls tonight insteada gettin’em?

  65. larisalapointe says:

    Just what the doctor ordered, a good old-fashioned drubbing but poor Minny ;(

  66. filincal says:

    Geez….according to Cole all Pyatt had to do was put his stick on the ice to score. And the most excited he got all night was when Koivu scored.

  67. Vid says:

    who’s the goalie coach for Minnesota? Did Pyatt really just score???

  68. HabFanSince72 says:

    Calgary down 3-0 after 5 min in a must win game against the Ducks.

  69. J.J. of Turku says:

    Me so happy! Can’t stop smiling… :D

  70. novahab says:

    You go to love the refs in this league they just need to be involved in the play and the out come of a game. Maybe its because they are are failed hockey players. Maybe it because head office tells them to do things like that.

  71. Rainrocket16 says:

    That one is for the BS penalty shot!! They never blew the damn whistle in the scrum in the crease, tired of the NHL horrible officiating this season!!

  72. Chuck Chuck Goose says:

    haha, CBC gave the goal to Benny

  73. 21BIGGionta says:

    good to see Price is making himself useful on the bench patting hamrliks face with a towel haha

  74. topher5468 says:

    Hey Boone, but it was BS when Torts called a time out up 6-3, c’mon now be fair,

    ” Its not an obession, Its a way of life”
