Audio: Game 1 morning skates

From Washington, Pat Hickey files audio from morning skates ahead of tonight’s Eastern Conference quarterfinal Game 1 between the Canadiens and the Washington Capitals:

CAPITALS: Bruce Boudreau | Nicklas Backstrom

CANADIENS: Jacques Martin

Jaroslav Halak was the first Canadiens goalie off the ice, so expect him in nets tonight against the Capitals’ José Theodore.


  1. Dlezlie says:

    any word on the goalie for tonihgt?

  2. Chuck says:

    Clue: Stubbs’ last sentence.


    Cheer for the crest on the front of the jersey, not the name on the back.

  3. dudurules says:

    Here we go”alie”

  4. Chuck says:

    500+ posts before game time, I’m guessing.


    Cheer for the crest on the front of the jersey, not the name on the back.

    I know one man who’ll calmly be playing the piano at home tonight in celebration of his unnappreciated work. Let’s “shoque the wourlde” GSP style.

  6. lavie says:

    He’s watching Habs playoff through HGTV…

  7. cautiousoptimist says:

    In the dressing room before the game tonight, Martin needs to go full
    Spartan and make sure his boys know what their profession is.  Then
    they can’t lose.

    1. – not a hockey site, but still kinda neat
    2. Mike Boone: “With Gainey at my side, I’d walk into any dark alley in the world.”
  8. habbifier says:

    Anyone excited yet…

  9. Le Jadester says:

    So much for Holmes on Homes being on Prime Time !

    (I get it, I’m assuming spelling mistake – BTW I almost wet myself when Bobo said that, cause I just got HD for the Olympics too)

    Habs, OLE !

    Lets start a liitle competition.  Guess how long it takes for our goalie to get pulled and/or The-odour.


    I say Halak is out mid Second


    Coach Martin say’s one… little forward…two….two lit..

  11. terrygain says:

    I’d say he’s not your goalie and this isn’t your team. You’re one of those silly Price fans who puts your favourite goalie  ahead of the team. Halak got my team to the playoffs. I expect him to perform as well in the playoffs as he did in the regular season. 

  12. terrygain says:

    Cheering against you own team. Loser.
