Max Pacioretty scored twice, picked up an assist, and tied his previous high of 10 shots on goal as he helped propel the Canadiens to a 4-2 victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs Saturday at the Bell Centre.

“They got the best of us the first game of the year,” said Pacioretty who has 7 goals in the last six games since breaking out of a slump. “We had a lot to prove and we’ve got some momentum right now. It’s a good feeling that everyone contributed tonight.”

When Pacioretty is confident he’s one of the team’s best forwards, said defenceman P.K. Subban.

“There’s a reason he’s been leading our scoring for the past couple of years,” Subban said. “He can do it all. He’s big, he can skate, he’s physical. He can shoot the puck–probably one of the hardest wristers in the league. When he’s confident in playing like that it’s a big boost for our team.”

Carey Price, who faced 36 shots, said the Canadiens are working well as a group and their puck pressure “is pretty top-notch out there.”

“We’re playing excellent hockey in front of me,” Price said. “We’re putting out 100 per cent effort every night. There’s no quit. That’s been the key to our success so far.”

Daniel Brière helped set up Tomas Plekanec’s goal in the second period with a strong performance in the Leafs zone. You can hear Brière talk about getting more confident playing with Plekanec and Brian Gionta and the ‘amazing’ atmosphere at the Bell Centre for the Habs-Leafs game.

    I guess Frank they don’t want to upset LAFF fans any further.

    Has anyone else noticed that the TSN blog of tonights game is closed you can’t make a comment really wow what a bunch of babies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I was surprised to hear Ron McLean just say that Doug Harvey was 31 when he won his 1st of 7 Norris trophies and Lidstrom was the same age for his 1st of 7.

    Seems like you need to score 4 goals and celebrate the 4th in a non traditonnal way to get the Leafs invovled in the game. Does Carlyle really thinks what he’s saying?

    “The shorthanded goal kind of stirred our emotions a bit from the standpoint of, if they want to hot dog it and sachet the sword and spin it and those kind of things, that’s when we finally got involved in the game,” Carlyle said. “We got emotionally mad and we were better after that. It kind of stirred the pot.”

    Since when Brophy writes for cbc?

    • Un Canadien errant says:

      I think the title says it all:

      Leafs focusing on positives after 7th straight road loss

      Except they’re not really being that positive after all…

    • Frank2468 says:

      Yes like the Laffs don’t show boat, look at Riemer the other night when they won, he looked in the air flexed his arms and gave the hulk kind of pose while yelling. whatever

    • third generation haber says:

      crying about officiating is a truly sad approach reserved for teams who can’t get their act together. Leafs should shut the F&%# up and play hockey. They brought in some impressive new players and decided that since they were contenders on paper, they need not play 60 minutes at a time. Lazy, lazy, lazy…

    • The Jackal says:

      Hahahaha, what a moron!
      It’s ridiculous how the dinosaurs of hockey take issue with how players celebrate big goals. First, it was that guy (sorry, I forget his name, on the Rangers), with the gun move – maybe it was a bit over the top but really, it’s nothing. Then, it’s every other Ovechkin celebration, after that it is whatever Subban does. Then it is Hertl, a sensational rookie celebrating a career highlight early in his NHL career. And the list goes on. Who are these people that dominate the airwaves when it comes to hockey analysis? I love hockey, but the sport is way too conservative-minded.
      It’s great that we have young, exuberant guys like PK, Hertl, and Ovi coming in and rocking the boat. The good Canadian kids are great but they are just one type of player. There is room for the youthful excitement of the new age stars.

      Hockey sine stercore tauri.

  7. Stevie.Ray says:

    Two weeks ago I said we would be ahead of the Leafs in the Standings by December. You’re welcome.

    Other predictions I have made:

    Both Tinordi and Beaulieu will be full time NHLers by the end of the season.
    None of Desharnais, Briere, or Gionta will be traded.
    Markov would be resigned.
    One of Gorges, Emelin, and Diaz would not be on the team by training camp next season.
    Dietz will light it up.

    We’ll see how I do.

      “Both Tinordi and Beaulieu will be full time NHLers by the end of the season”

      I think putting 2 kids on the D is not gonna happen. Maybe one will happen.
      And what about Pateryn? He is playing better than Tinordi, and was lighting it up when both of the kids were in Montreal. Anyone think he can be a good dman?

  8. The Jackal says:

    Hey there HIO!

    I was just basking in the glory of our great win against the worst team in the world. I was listening to our goal song on youtube and there is a HIO summit pic in the vid! Enjoy!

    Hockey sine stercore tauri.

  9. ClutchNGrab says:

    Adonis Stevenson keeps his title. However, since the revalations in different media outlet on his shady past I find myself in a weird place.

    I don’t like the guy. But used to cheer for him.

    As I said, weird place.

  10. RAM_TOUGH says:

    LOL, looks like TSN & the Leafs are a bitter bunch tonight! LMFAO


    • Frank2468 says:

      Yes Ram I was at Toronto Sports Network haha and the blog of tonights game is closed can’t make a comment. I checked other blogs to see if its a problem with the site and it isn’t. What a bunch of babies. If the Laffs had won bet the blog would have been open to all Laffs so they could post their obnoxious and nasty comments. Blah Blah Blah.

  11. durocher says:

    Hamilton wins tonight — Tinordi was +3 and had a fight:

    • jols101 says:

      Thanks for posting that. Good tilt, against a tough boy. Tiny fought last night against Broll. I haven’t seen it but I read that he lost decisively. Good to see him back on the horse. He will be a menace on our blue line for over a decade. I can’t wait.

  12. jimmy shaker says:

    8 minutes for parros on monday…….ice time not pims.

    Shaker out!

  13. durocher says:

    It was a true team victory — it’s great to see everyone contribute, including guys who haven’t played in a while in Bourque and Parros.

    Right now, the only question mark I can see is, can the Habs find a good fit for Eller and Gally27 on the right wing. Hopefully Bourque can step up and those three can build some chemistry there.

  14. Rob Maguire says:

    First … place in the Atlantic Division is where the Habs will be if they keep this up!

  15. ClutchNGrab says:

    Good to be a Habs fan.

    Apparently some Toronto fans think bad calls and two misses by Kessel is why they lost.

    • If the refs had called even one of the clutch and/or gooning penalties that the Leafs got away with in the third, rather than a token Phaneuf penalty with 47 seconds to go, it would have been 5 or 6 to 2.

      The Habs are going to be just fine. Bring on the Gooins.
