Not easy, of course.

Nothing ever is.

But big.

    Two goal lead. Time to go into the four corners and take the air out of the puck. Systematic employment of The System is our only hope!

  2. Mavid says:

    that thumbs up or down is just to annoy the hell out of soon as you mention get a bunch of thumbs down..just watch

    second place is just the first loser

  3. The_Salted_One says:

    much better effort tonight. is it me, or is pouliot having problems with every pass that goes his way tonight?

    your friendly neighborhood Salted One

  4. punkster says:

    Quick thoughts:
    – Cammy’s breakaway shot was weak, much like many of the shots he has taken since his return. It’s clear he’s not 100%.
    – I gave up on AK last season and I was wrong. So, I haven’t given up on Pouliot completely. This year, yes. He’s a useless, stumbling, bumbling goof. Teach him how to stay on his skates this summer then give him another chance.
    – That fight was nothing more than Atlanta trying to get their guys revved. Staged. I hate staged. Give me two guys who dislike each other and those are the only fights I’d like to see remain in the game. The rest are WWF level crap.
    – Gotta love the jump in the Habs tonight. Finally.

  5. samTHEman says:

    I’d like to know Martin’s rationalization, or lack thereof, for not having PK on the ice for any of the 2 PP waves. Inexcusable. It’s a mistake.

  6. habs001 says:

    i wonder how many fewer point orr would have had if martin was his coach…he would have really reduced pp time

  7. Bugs says:

    Gomez best Hab in 1st period; can you friggin believe it?
    Guy came to play. Wonder what happened.

    Chillin like MacMillan, potty-boy says he’s L. B. Potter, esq.

  8. rob_c says:

    I bash the guy constantly, but that was the best period Ive seen Gomez play all year. As much as I dislike this guy we NEED him to play better then he has for us to be successful.

  9. SLYDER says:

    how long has it been since gomez’s last point?

    not including the minny game?

    • VancouverHab says:

      Since the game his linemate MaxPac went down. No coincidence.

    • SLYDER says:

      had to go back to march 12th …a 3-0 win against pittsburgh

      one little old assist

      he only had one assist in an 8-1 win against minny

      since march 12th…he has had only 2 assists (not including this game)

      8-1 and 3-0 games

      thanks for showing up

  10. Da Hema says:

    Can anyone explain to me the value of the “thumbs up/down” feature? I mean, someone “thumb downed” me simply for asking for a link to the game!

  11. habs001 says:

    hammer scored but i did say would be on a pp

  12. Mavid says:

    nice job Moen…

    second place is just the first loser

  13. t1tan5 says:

    Let’s keep it going. Nothing would be a bigger buzz kill than sitting on the lead for 40 minutes.

  14. avatar_58 says:

    Now THATs more like it. Even AK blocking shots. Gomez looks like he wants to bury the critics, let’s hope he gets one

  15. Mavid says:

    whooohooooo the boys have some jump tonight..and Pricey is in the zone…i am feeling a tad more optimistic tonight…

    second place is just the first loser

  16. Keith says:

    He clocked Moen at the end, but Moen did well.

  17. punkster says:

    Dumbass fight.

    ***Subbang Baby!!!***

  18. Clear and decisive win for Moen.

  19. JIMVINNY says:

    Trashers getting away with a lot of picks.

  20. matrags says:

    rain rain yess rain …….

  21. Hamrlik has a ton of jump tonight.

  22. Caper says:

    Wake me up.

  23. punkster says:

    DD is a battler.

    ***Subbang Baby!!!***

  24. Keith says:

    Hockey is a strange game sometimes. Don’t score in three games, then pop two in 10 seconds.

  25. The_Salted_One says:

    WOW! when it rains, it pours? hammer and darche unlikely sources but i’ll take em anyway!

    your friendly neighborhood Salted One

  26. go.habs.go says:

    I guess they’ve been saving them up. Binge scorers?

  27. habs-hampton says:

    I really think the team missed Darche.

  28. Shiloh says:

    It’s a flurry!

  29. JIMVINNY says:

    OK, Martin needs to tell them to slow down. They’re going to use up another weeks worth of goals here.

  30. Bugs says:

    And when the floodgates opened, the Lord did sayeth “whadd’I tell yehs? help thyself and I will help you.”

    Chillin like MacMillan, potty-boy says he’s L. B. Potter, esq.

  31. JasonM says:

    Ok, we need to keep booing Gomez, if he’ll play like that…

  32. RGM says:

    Our Canadiens are very much alive!!

    Carey Price is All Hart!
    Go Habs Go!

  33. punkster says:

    Holy crap. Gomez great play.

    ***Subbang Baby!!!***

  34. SLYDER says:

    somebody called hammer! who was it? they win!!!

    and as i type gomez did something!!!!!!!



  35. Chuck Chuck Goose says:

    They’ve scored more goals in the last 20 seconds than they’ve scored all week!

  36. Guys! Don’t waste all our goals for the week!!

  37. t1tan5 says:

    What is going on?!!

  38. Kramby says:

    that’s 2 baby
    yes yes yes yes yes yes

  39. Keith says:

    What Darche now!!!

  40. sidhu says:


    Boys, save some goals for the rest of the regular season and playoffs.

  41. JasonM says:



  42. JIMVINNY says:

    Did anyone call Hammer?

  43. JasonM says:


    Still no forward goals though! 🙂

  44. t1tan5 says:

    Hamrlik assisted by Hamrlik!

  45. Keith says:



  46. larisalapointe says:


  47. _Habsoloutly_ says:


  48. Bugs says:

    Who had the Hamr?!

    Chillin like MacMillan, potty-boy says he’s L. B. Potter, esq.

  49. sidhu says:

    Nice pass by Wiz.

  50. go.habs.go says:

    oh hell yes. ugly or not…

  51. SLYDER says:

    you had it the first time boone – atlanta has had better looks

    montreal has had one post

    pleks and cammy just padded pavelecs(?) stats

  52. samTHEman says:

    Why isn’t PK on the PP? Is this part of Martin’s plan to keep a rookie in check? FFS…he’s our best scoring defenseman. USE HIM GOD DAMNIT MARTIN

  53. VancouverHab says:

    Uhhm, “they” booed the Gomez rush because a winger went needlessly offside… (assuming “they” aren’t total morons.)

  54. Komihater says:

    So far Pouliot has messed up every time he touches the puck…wow

  55. CHsam says:

    I don’t know anything about POULIOT’s conditioning, but I think the dude NEEDS to work on his overall strength- especially lower body strength..

    • habstrinifan says:

      One hundred percent agree with you. If you take a look at him in his undershirt it’s plain to see he needs upper body mass.

      I hope they ensure a program for him in the off season and only after seeing how he responds (whether he does the program of not and whether he gains the muscle mass) do they decide his future.

      I do not want to lose a player with so much skill/pedigree before good development strategy havs been exhasusted on him.

  56. Kristopher7 says:

    Well at least Gomez/Gionta/Desharnais sorta battled along the boards, and the eventually made its way to Wiz for a shot off the post.

    Do they realize winning battles along the boards = good, yet?

  57. JIMVINNY says:

    I think Price realizes that goals aren’t going to be plentiful, because he is lights out so far tonight.

  58. Keith says:

    WOW! Pricey saves again!

  59. sidhu says:

    Benny falls again — that’s two shifts, two times on the ice.

  60. Da Hema says:

    Anyone have a working link to the game?

  61. t1tan5 says:

    Are we ever going to score? We’re so cursed.

  62. SLYDER says:

    Gomez is afraid to shoot and afraid to go to the net

    ….but he will skate really fast to the blue line that already has 3 players waiting and go offside


  63. SeriousFan09 says:

    No Subban on the PP again, what is JM doing? This is inexcusable not playing one of his best weapons.

    – I shall always remember Captain Koivu. Habs and Hockey.

  64. samTHEman says:

    PK not on PP? WTF???

  65. go.habs.go says:

    Loving Boone’s sarcasm.

  66. Keith says:

    He’ll cherry pick those all night long!

  67. JasonM says:

    Mara over Subban on the powerplay, makes sense. Comon MARTIN

  68. It’s been a good start, but everyone wants to score, use your team guys.

  69. sidhu says:

    Some boo’s for Gomez already

  70. larisalapointe says:

    We’re all in the waiting-room waiting for “the goal”

  71. RGM says:

    I feel a goal coming on!

    Carey Price is All Hart!
    Go Habs Go!

  72. Rudy says:

    Lets go guys! Bury one!

    “Start the season with a clean equipment bag and a freah bucket of febreze!”-CharlieHodgeFan

  73. Keith says:

    Time to SCORE!

  74. SeriousFan09 says:

    Cammy still straining to get his shot off, his release was not the usual snap you expect.
