What’s new? 3-2 … in a shootout

And Canadiens win it.

Kozlov: Miss

A, Kostitsyn: Goal

Hossa: Save by Huet

Koivu: GOAL!!!!

Cristobal Huet – after another puckhandling episode during the third period – is great in OT and brilliant in the shootout.

I take back all the things I wrote about his mother. How did he maintain concentration and make all those saves with goat’s horns on his mask?

Guy Carbonneau wanted eight points on the road trip. Canadiens got six.

Mission accomplished. 



  1. Naila Jinnah says:

    Do we fine him for making saves then?

  2. Naila Jinnah says:

    Finnish as in Saku?

  3. Naila Jinnah says:

    More like what I heard… Pierre talking to his producer before the visuals/scoreboard was out for the commercial break!
    Which means that either someone wasn’t counting down, or he can’t hear them.

  4. Deano says:

    Nope that is not how it works

  5. The Teacher says:

    I’d take Perry in a heartbeat…even less than that.

  6. Habs-Kat says:

    Pathetic powerplay…

  7. Habs-Kat says:

    I’d like a goal, pretty please 🙂

  8. wd40 says:

    i was just going to say, how was that NOT a penalty.. when…

  9. The Teacher says:

    I think we are playing a good game so far.

    1. Solid defense
    2. Koivu showed up (again)
    3. Sergei is playing smart, so smart
    4. Komi playing well, getting the puck out through the middle now I notice instead of always on boards on PK.

  10. Ed says:

    And he is good at it.

  11. linp says:

    Smolinski can’t react fast. He can get out-trick very easily

  12. lennon says:

    my view on Huet playing the puck- fine him 1000.00 every time he touches it.

  13. Rugger says:

    We get your point – you don’t like Koivu

  14. Ed says:

    Mark Recchi a penalty in the O zone, and on the PP to boot.

  15. Kevin says:

    How good is Kovalev this season? He plays on the PK.

  16. the_vipah says:

    Boy I hope we don’t pick up Hossa..what a pussy.

  17. linp says:

    Doesn’t look good

  18. Kevin says:

    How many times has Boone written that Higgins is snakebit this season? Maybe Higgins just does not have that finnish… yet…

  19. wd40 says:


  20. wd40 says:

    i didn’t notice… what did you see that irked you? 🙂

  21. Naila Jinnah says:

    The only way Huet will get his confidence back is by playing and earning a win. It’s the right decision to play him, even though we’d love to see Halak in nets.

    Plus, if they played Halak and we lost due to goaltending, the outrage would blow off the Bell Center roof!

  22. Naila Jinnah says:

    So I’m a perfectionist… But I get really ticked off at those RDS production errors!

  23. Cable Guy says:

    well it’s not as if Huet has been winning us games. We’ve been scoring more goals this year. Huet looks at best average this year. IF we go to a shootout tonight we lose.

  24. JB_15 says:

    I am pretty sure I had peewee games that generated bigger crowds than that of phillips arena tonight.

    What a crap market.

  25. wd40 says:

    great start! keep it up boys.

  26. saskhab says:

    Are we sure the Habs scouts were there for Calgary and not for Minnesota?

  27. Rugger says:

    Wouldn’t it really be only half that for the balance of this year, since we have paid Ryder half already and Calgary has paid Tanguay half?

  28. wd40 says:

    Hamrlik worked out so well, they’re going back to the trough for a second drink? Though that wasn’t a trade… i guess we’ll see.

  29. Deano says:

    I calculate the Cap Hit at $2.425M:

    AT = 5.375
    MR = 2.950

  30. wd40 says:

    i guess the obvious answer is, as the backup, wait. 🙂 seriously though, when the time comes, i’m sure he’ll put in a good effort.

  31. arcosenate says:

    Calgary rumours eh? Interesting, I can’t imagine how their roster fits our needs and vice-versa. Sounds like a bad match to me. It can’t be Lombardi, he’s their fastest player as it is. It better not be Conroy, God help us. Anyway, Montreal 5 Atlanta 2.

  32. Naila Jinnah says:

    Be the number one goalie as opposed to a call up.

  33. Cable Guy says:

    I can’t understand why Halak can’t get a start? What more does the guy have to do?

  34. wd40 says:

    I don’t necessarily want to see the Habs go to OT against a team that’s 10-2 (5-0 in the extra period and 5-2 in the SO). That being said, if it’s in the stars, ’tis certainly better than a regulation loss. Huet is a good goaltender and i’d like to see him gain some confidence with a W in the SO, especially against this team. Though that “relief” goaltender in the SO sure is intruiging.

  35. Shawn S says:

    Mckenzie hinting at Ryder for Tanguay. Ouch at his cap hit of 5.25 mill.

  36. Mike says:

    hey boone, what happened to the boone jynx?

  37. Shawn S says:

    Sportscentre will be talking about the trade right now. It has got to involve to Ryder. Tune it to TSN right now!!
