• At a Glance: For the second time in three games, the Canadiens jumped out to a commanding lead on an opponent, but this time they never let up and won 7-1 over the Ottawa Senators on Friday night. The Canadiens struck early in each period, with Benoit Pouliot scoring 1:53 into the opening period when he was sent in alone by Mathieu Darche. Tomas Plekanec scored his first of the game 3:45 into the period when he was left alone in the slot and fired a shot past Mike Brodeur. The Senators got one back before the game was 10 minutes old when Chris Kelly tapped a puck into an open net after a nice pass from Chris Campoli. But unlike Monday night againt the Calgary Flames, the Canadiens didn’t let the Senators back into this game, scoring three more times in the second period. Brian Gionta scored his 16th of the season when he accepted a pass from behind the net by Scott Gomez only 1:12 into the second period. Max Pacioretty, who left Tuesday’s game in Buffalo after taking a slapshot to the ribs, scored a power-play goal 5:33 into the period, chasing Brodeur from the net. Brian Elliott didn’t do much better as Plekanec scored his second of the game when he blocked a shot at the Canadiens blue line and went in alone on Elliott 11:27 into the period. Only 2:18 into the third period, Andrei Kostitsyn gathered a rebound and flipped a shot from a bad angle into the top corner over a sprawled Elliott. P.K. Subban scored his fifth of the season with about seven minutes to play with a blistering slapshot from the point during a power play. Carey Price made 33 saves for his league-leading 24th win of the season. It’s the second time this season that the Canadiens have scored seven goals in a game, beating Carolina 7-2 on Nov. 13.

• Key Moments: Up 5-1, the Canadiens killed off a 5-on-3 disadvantage late in the second period and early in the third, thus eliminating any thought the Senators might have had of mounting a comeack.

• What It Means: Montreal improves to 27-17-4 for 58 points, jumping back into sixth place in the Eastern Conference, one point ahead of the New York Rangers, who have played one more game. Montreal is also one point behind the Boston Bruins for first place in the Northeast Division.

• What’s Next: The Canadiens are back in Montreal Saturday night to take on the Anaheim Ducks, marking the return of former captain Saku Koivu. Montreal then plays the Philadelphis Flyers on Tuesday before having nearly a week off during the NHL All-Star break before taking on the Washington Capitals on Feb. 1.

    Anyone else think Lappy might act like a little clown tomorrow night? I have a feeling if he does, White might challenge him, or Moen, but I doubt Max accepts. And if he does, it would simply be for show and not to try win the fight. Lappy would make it a boring one just wrestling the guy so he doesn’t get killed….

    5th round pick all it would cost us now. Better him than Enqvist (or whatever). I say what the hell; throw the dice.

  27. Mike MacPhee says:

    No!  Never again! Not ever!

    Only a fool of a GM would even think of trading for that lazy under-achiever.

    Even thinking of the possibility makes me lose sleep.

  28. Mike MacPhee says:

    Better no one than Kovalev.  Better to miss the playoffs with what we have rather than pick up a team-destroyer like him.

  29. Bugs says:

    Second that. I’m a fat nobody WITH the links; without them…heck, can’t even bear the thought.

  30. Bugs says:

    Ridiculous. …better to miss the playoffs… Listen to yourself, mate.

  39. shiram says:

    Pg would be quite astute to make Peter Forsberg an offer.

    eh but really, he seems to be practicing with the Avalanches, so i’m guessing thats where he’d sign.

  40. JohnBellyful says:

    Glad to see they got the paragraph spacing glitch fixed.

  41. JohnBellyful says:

    Just heard on the radio that one in four Montrealers take some kind of antidepressant.
    Folks, it’s just a GAME. And the team is playing above .500. Without some key players. With Gomez. So it’s not all bad.
    The news item also said a significant amount of the antidepressants is finding its way into the St. Lawrence River. Look, if you’re going to get meds, at least use them, don’t flush them down the toilet. Tranquilized fish, just what the world needs.
    Hands up, how many HIO-ers use prescription drugs? Before going on here? After?

  43. Hagar says:

    He sold a lot of different drugs. I’m guessing he just advertised the crack because it was short & easy to say. It fits on a sign easily. 

  44. christophor says:

    PG/BG forgot to inform the league of the callup. nothing to do with the lineup; he was on there.

    i remember tsn saying it was going to be a six-digit fine, but it was also the anniversary of BG’s daughter’s passing, so it was overlooked.

    BG was GM at the time.

  45. ZepFan2 says:

    Oh I understand their rage. If I was living there, I’d just call a few “friends” and tell them about this free DJ equipment and where to find it.


  46. HUDSONHAB says:

    He is practising with the Avs on Saturday…..Hab4life….

  47. Bugs says:

    But like Kovy, that player ALSO showed up in the playoffs for us.

  48. newbrunswick troy says:

    I,ve been in that section…loved it…best way to take a game in!!!


  49. Bugs says:

    More like his collectors, Lumpy and Joey the Fork. Very adept…teachers.

  50. aemarchand11 says:

    We’re Road tripping from Halifax, should be a great time. Thanks for the info!

    Go Habs Go! 2010-2011

  51. Hagar says:

    That’s almost as suspicious as the incident I’m talking about. They should follow this dude around for a looong long time, invade his privacy completely (leave absolutely no stone unturned) & lock his ass away for forever & a day if he’s guilty. Or at least meddle in his life & kick the crap out of him with a baseball bat. Forget about selling drugs. We should do this to the 30 people that have used drugs as well. They play their part in it as well.

  52. Mattyleg says:

    Great fun. The Cheerleaders are hot… you’ll enjoy the view from there. And you should be able to see the game too!

  53. HabFanSince72 says:

    Geroge Parros is a complete joke. He is one of the reasons hockey needs to ban fighting. The guy can barely skate, scores less than a point every 10 games (4 in 49 this year), and only ever engages in these idiotic staged fights with other goons, that always end up with him falling over.


    And he’s Don Cherry’s favourite Duck.


  54. HabFanSince72 says:

    Bugs – you are, as usual, right, and the haytazz are, as usual, wrong.



  55. Mattyleg says:

    He’s perfect! He’ll finally provide some muscle to intimidate all the other players in the league from chasing down our players and shooting them like fish in a barrel! He’s amazing! PG would be a fool etc. etc. C’mon all you big talkers! Any takers? This is YOUR idea!!

    —Hope Springs Eternal—

  56. PeterD says:

    Was just reading a report out of Vancouver that the Cancucks are not able under league rules to re-activate Sami Salo off LTIR when he is ready (and that is supposed to be pretty soon) until they dump enough salary to fit him under the Cap…according to Cap Geek they are now abourt $3.6 M over the cap…that means they may need to move about $3.6M in salary…Canucks are going to be seller even if they don’t want to be.


    Questions…would we take Salo as a experienced D for the drive or hold them up for Bieksa, Edler, or Ehrhoff. All are between $3.1 and $3.7 M and we only pay there reamining salary not the full cap hit.    I think I would try to go aftere Bieksa, Ehrhoff or Edler…all younger and would add to our beaten up D and next years opening due to FA.

  57. Say Ash says:

    Bieksa is having a stellar year

  58. Hagar says:

    Not getting your post Bugs. Is a caucasian a drink? Are you supporting your choice over my own? Please clarify.

    If ya ask me, and most people do, Pierre Gauthier’s trying to acquire the top five picks from that ’05 draft… We have Price, got Pouliot last season and the sights are set on Jack Johnson, Bobby Ryan and some Sidney guy. When’s Crosby a UFA?

  66. Bogie Man says:

    Do a google search for Hal Gill (undisclosed, questionable). There are all kinds of articles out there on this you just need to look. I am not one to make up this shit.

  67. A. Berke says:

    Salo?  Not in your life, he’s getting up there in years + he has been injured too may times.

      I’ll take the other 3 as long as they’re at reasonable cost.


  68. Bugs says:

    They WERE impressive. However good Cammy was, he didn’t beat a team BY HIMSELF like Kovy did the Bruins after his slash to the wrist/Souray episode. So if Cammy “showed up”, then let me amend to “Kovy SUPER showed up.” I’m not telling you to stop hating Kovy, Bill. I know how you feel about’m so hate away to your heart’s content and I won’t say nuthin. But don’t fabulate to support that hate, please. He was a frustrating dog who hates the concept of “team” and all he cares about is himself and he hates hockey and he hates kids and he hates to play the game and he sucks and he’s lazy and he’s a cancer and when he plays, everyone gets cholera and dies? Fine. But he showed up when it mattered most, in the playoffs. And that’s it, Bill.

  70. Muckbringer says:

    game 7 OT. any hab scores. that man gets his #(and name) retired.  oh and 31 as well.  and i ask myself still… why not #28?

  71. zak says:

    How many draft picks are we going to trade away.This is what calgary has done and they don’t have anyone in their system, no picks coming up, they’re up against the cap. Can’t keep trading away picks. they’re the future of the team

  72. HardHabits says:

    Kirk Muller only won one Cup with the Habs. Forget about Ryan Walter, Rejean Houle or Yvon Lambert either. I doubt it.

  73. terrygain says:

    Beliveau is one of the classiest guys ever to wear the uniform. So he would say nothing. I say: Yvon Lambert was a great player on several Cup winning teams but  retiring numbers should be reserved for  the best of the best.

  74. sprague cleghorn says:

    Kovy was invisible.

  75. habsfanincalgary says:

    I missed the game tonight and only caught highlights.  Did Kovy do anyting tonight?

    With Cammy on the IR, what impact does that have on the team’s cap?  As well, with Gorges and Markov, does that give the Habs further relief?

    I looked at stats on today and couldn’t help but noticing ribeiro is #19 with 44 points, grabo is 46 with 37 points, tanguay is 60th with 35 points and TP is 42 with 38 points…just wondering who the Habs’ points leader will be and with how many points at the end of the season…will anyone break 30 goals?

  77. Clay4bc says:

    That’s exactly how I saw it too…well said.

  78. terrygain says:

    Tomas Plekanec scored his first of the game 3:45 into the period when he was left alone in the slot and fired a shot past Mike Brodeur. 

    A better description of this goal is that Andrei Kostitsyn, forechecking deep in the Ottawa end,  grabbed a loose puck and in an instant  turned and – seeing the ice better than anyone on this team – fed a perfect pass to a wide open Plekanec in the high slot, who blasted the puck past the Ottawa goalie.

    carolina, 7-2 and id call the 5-1 in jersey a routing as well… for multiple reasons

    what ever lines jm had tonight, try it again tomorrow against the ducks..the offence finally came alive..good game tonight..well done Habs.

  82. Chuck says:

    Actually, they scored a converted touchdown.  :)

  83. Trenton_Romulox says:

    I really wish they’d gone for (and converted) the 2-point conversion. But hey, I’ll take your run of the mill TD and PAT any game. 


    Just some observations from the game: Pacioretty looked great, and his whiff in the first seemed to really drive him for the rest of the game. AK was GREAT on the forecheck all night. The Darche-Pouliot combination is proving to be really exciting to watch, they generate some great chances, and that first goal was a beauty. Plekanec is awesome, but what else is new? And Price played very solidly even after the Habs took a big lead, which is tough to do for goalies, so bravo to him for keeping his concentration for the full 60 minutes. 

  84. Everlasting1 says:

    And PK had to pile on. No scruples whatsoever 😛

  85. The Cat says:

    Got to figure that giving up 7 goals to a team that cant score will probably get Clouston fired.

  86. CanadienBoy says:

    Darche flourishing in the system

  87. fbkj says:

    what do you mean “finally a routing” its our 3rd thus far



  88. Everlasting1 says:

    Finally..a routing, and a full 60min. effort. Speed, sniperability, and a shut-down D.

    Pacioretty legitimizing his top 6 role. His last stint in Hamilton looked fruitful in elevating his game. His pim could improve though. He looks as good as any realistic trade management can conceive in bolstering the offense. Ryan White could turn out to be the gritty enforcer they need. Subban looking more subdued. Good on him. Can’t say enough about Pleks, he’s gold.

    When was the last time Le Cage had to serve free wings before mid point of the game?

  91. _Habsoloutly_ says:

    It makes me sick how everyone is trying to crush this kid’s spirit.  It’s player’s like PK that the NHL needs to grow the game.

  92. zak says:

    Could be his teammates

  93. WindsorHab-10 says:

    Did not smile because he has class. His goal made it 7-1. If it was any closer, I’m sure we would’ve seen that smile.

  94. Cookies says:

    Great win for the club!


    I don’t want to rock the boat or anything, but I hope this whole media situation on PK hasn’t affected his personality. It felt strange to not see him smile after that beautiful one timer. Not even his eyes looked “happy”…


    Here’s to hoping that he doesn’t let the press get to him.

  95. _Habsoloutly_ says:

    Ya Dean, it was an awesome game.

  96. Cool Ice Price says:

    Did Alfie & Kovy play tonight?

    Carey was a beast tonight.

    Max, what a warrior eh.

  97. Cool Ice Price says:

    WOW, a great win eh. The 7 goals were a real treat. But what concerns me is that when the Habs score 4 or more goals in a game the next game they have trouble potting a couple. Anywho I’m just happy we trashed the Sens

    nice too  see the boys kick a teams ass for once!!!!!!  Andrei  has really stepped it up as of late.

  102. shiram says:

    July first is a holyday, so people dont work, which helps with moving, plus no one really celebrates canada day all that much here.


  103. shiram says:

    It can definately lead to all sorts of madness, and renting trucks is hell and very expensive.

    I usually move a week before or after. And not all 4 millions are moving.

  104. fbkj says:

    yeah back when i was an apartment dweller i avoided the 1st like the plague

  105. joeybarrie says:

    The whole not celebrating Canada Day is not my experience, but then again my friends and I were always looking for reasons to drink.

    Here people move every month. Never understood how a city of 4 million all were trying to move on the same day…

    There may be other teams, but only ONE Club De Hockey…

  106. fbkj says:

    oh nice im close to the p section (slambert)

    edit: i think were the same age, lemme guess… centennial? (further edit) did a facebook stalk, we have 2 mutual friends

    first cfl game that day. last july 1 sask/als game was a classic. fireworks on july 1. used to be called dominion day.

  108. fbkj says:

    never once have i moved my fridge… hmmmm

  109. joeybarrie says:

    I never understood that. I work in property management and the whole ‘everyone moves on July 1st and brings their own fridge’ is just odd… Kinda like people paying for their groceries here in Wash DC with a check…

    There may be other teams, but only ONE Club De Hockey…

  110. LA Loyalist says:

    … and he needs to have his own fridge. 

    That is the weirdest thing in Montreal, everyone moves around their own fridges.


  111. krob1000 says:

    and Getzlaf was the one that got away in 05 …hmmm…..We have Canadiens west in Anaheim, Canadiens east in Tampa and Canadiens central in St. Louis…something fishy going on

  112. HUDSONHAB says:

    Give? Give! That’s all we do is give. When do we get something in return???!!!!


  113. smiler2729 says:

    Chipchura actually stuck with the Ducks? So three of their four centers are ex-Habs… Hmmm… who else can we give ’em… AK46…

  114. Maksimir says:

    Don’t forget they also have Paul Mara…

    How about we do AK46 & Weber for Getzlaf?

  115. smiler2729 says:

    Well, long ago, the Kings and the Seals gave us 1st round picks (Lafleur! Tardiff, Houle)) for guys like Ernie Hicke and Ralph Backstrom… the Leafs gave us Russ Courtnall for a corpse… I figure the Ducks could give us, ummm, Bobby Ryan! Yeah, that’s the ticket!

  116. christophor says:

    It’s pretty simple: the Habs draft well in the higher rounds and so have too many players per position. Not all can stay. Some have to go. No other NHL team has drafted more current NHLers than the Habs.

  117. krob1000 says:

    that may be attributed to our draft the best player policy instead of drafting for need…..who knows

  118. christophor says:

    i think drafting the best player makes way more sense these days. 

    by the time a player is developed, the team’s needs will have likely changed dramatically.

    remember pierre mcguire talking about price being a bad choice because the habs depth in net? forget the players drafted after him, the point is that this depth disappeared fast.

  119. HUDSONHAB says:

    I have a friend going, he will be some where in the cheap seats because his buddy was to cheap to get decent ones.

    Who’s going to the game tonight in Ottawa? I’ll be in section 118.

  122. mike g says:

    So for years we’ve been crying for a big forward who isn’t affraid to stand infront of the net on the PP. We finally seemed to have found one in Max, as since his return he hadn’t been scared to park his a*s there. And just as he’s gaining confidence in the crease and filling his roll, the Wiz drills him straight in the ribs and it’s a stretcher with IV for Max!!! LOL….

     I got AK at under 64.5 pts, with Triple X and Tom Nickle.

  123. habs001 says:

    so true…the technique maxpac was using did not seem to be the right way to be positioned in front of the net to minimize getting hit…not sure

  124. PeterD says:

    I would like to see the forwards that are supposed to take a net presence like Patches start to wear the larger better rib protection of the D-man shoulder pads…many forwards seem to like the smaller lighter shoulder pads but these aren’t as protective of the ribs as the d-men equipment…remember Lafeur and Gilmour’s shoulder pads looked like small cotton cups on the shoulder joint and mostly nothing else…

    Maybe Patches will upgrade his protection for the forseeable future and it wouldn’t hurt to also put on some of hte plastic skate guards to protect their feet.  Couldn’t hurt right?

    Well to explain his technique, I don’t think anyone was expecting Wiz to shoot so quickly. Max looked like he was just trying to annoy and screen Miller, so that once the shot came he could move out of the way and Miller wouldn’t know where to move. Max was probably caught by surprise.

     I got AK at under 64.5 pts, with Triple X and Tom Nickle.

    in many key stats pk,pp, plus/ minus, home record  and goals againts we are doing well compared to the rest of the teams…the two stats that we are poor at and hopefully we can improve a bit is road record (21st in points gained) and goals for (26th)…improving our road record could be the key to winning the division

    Does anyone here know hte rules for players getting picked up off the waiver wire?  Specifically, how the teams get to pick…is there a rule about sequence of teams getting a shot or passing on the player andif so how does it work?

    I believe it is like the draft where last place team has first rights to claim. If only one team claims then they get to keep the player, if two or more teams claim then the team lowest in the standings gets the player.

    It wouldn’t hurt, but most players find it uncomfortable to add pieces to their equipment. They argue it makes it heavier and harder to move in. But I think it was just a case of bad luck, it’s not everyday it happens. Plus like I said, I think Wiz rushed the shot from the point and Max thought he would pass or wait a little more before shooting. Even I was surprised he shot right away. It was from the blueline with no pressure and Wiz could’ve taken more time. I think Max thought the same, and was waiting to move out of Miller’s way to clear room for the shot.

    Oh sure why not! Who is the head quack there? Yeah, Bob Murray, he’ll go for that… and we’ll send him some smoked meat, some rye bread, pickles and a case of Export… and a Mae West

    Maybe we can trade Pyatt to Edmonton for Hall, Moen to Columbus for Nash and White to the Ducks for Perry?

    When are the Habs gonna stop overpaying for borderline NHL’ers in trades?

    I think you would have to give up Alex Henry as well to get Nash… BUT its ok, cause I imagine we would get a 2nd round pick along with Perry for White, Perry is only 6’3 not exactly fair if we are giving up White..

    There may be other teams, but only ONE Club De Hockey…

    I’d name my next kid Gauthier.

  137. PeterD says:

    I thought it was like that…but is it based on last seasons standings or this years current placement of teams at the time a play is placed on waivers?

    Like today…would that last place team in the league right now have first pick for Nabakov?

  138. RC-51 says:

    I think NJ Devils have first dibs!

    Getzlaf was drafted in 03

    think you knew the point was that it was the Ak draft and he is the other center….but thanks….

    I’m feeling sick to my stomach knowing that I am going to miss tomorrows game and Koivu’s return since I need to attend a family function.  I was wondering if any of you knew if there was a site or something where you can see full stream of the game after the match is over. I just always loved Koivu as a player and person since I was a kid and its a special game for me and I imagine for many a fan. Thanks in advance!

    You can download the complete game via a torrent on this site – If they don’t let you register, you can send me a PM – I have only one invitation to give out, and this is a worthy cause. But you have to promise me to keep your ratio up, and seed this at least 1-1 (or just keep it seeding ans exchange the hourly points for a better ratio).or else they may ban me…and I live overseas, so it’s the only way I get to see most of the games at all.

    Good point. Don’t know why that never crossed my mind!


    Thank you :)
