Habs fans in D.C.: good hearts, old jerseys

Hello, Enterprise? Read below.

Colleague Pat Hickey and I just bumped into four Canadiens fans at a burger joint called The Greene Turtle, a popular watering hole/sports bar around the corner from the Verizon Center.

Montrealers, all: Stéphane Bédard, François Lacasse, Christopher Côté and David Patrick Neil. All but Neil were wearing their white Canadiens jerseys; Neil has only a red sweater, and he wasn’t about to blend into tonight’s red sea of Capitals jerseys, so he wore a white T-shirt.

Loved the Habs jerseys these boys were wearing, emblazoned with the numbers and names of Zednik, Kovalev and Perezhogin. But what I liked most was Bédard’s headgear, which he’ll wear tonight. Check it out below, front and back views.

And don’t miss the shot of Hickey, calling from help beside his broken Honda Civic (500,000+ km on the odometer), in New Jersey on the drive to Game 7.

Montrealer Stéphane Bédard and what he’ll wear tonight. He says the bottles won’t be filled with water.

And The Gazette’s Pat Hickey calls for help as ruefrontenac.com’s Marc De Foy studies a car that’s feeling a little like Jaroslav Spacek. Photo credit: Arpon Basu, the third man in the car.

    Its also on Versus, which is available on most cable around there. Call the bars and ask if they have versus/would show it. I don’t think the Twins play tonight, though I’m not sure, so there wouldn’t be any real competition.

    OK, so, I’m stuck in Minnesota and won’t be able to watch the game tonight.  I’m PVRing it and watching it when I get home tomorrow.  So, if we lose, just saying bye to everyone for the offseason.  If we win, well, then this post is redundant.

    something like 33 in the regular season, i do know for sure that only THREE of them were called on their own without the makeup hooking/slashing call.  playoffs i believe are at 4

    Inter Milan got screwed by the refs against Barcelona.

    If they hold on, maybe we can overcome bad reffing too?

    Anybody know how many diving penalties have been called in the entire 2009-10 season?  What about in the Playoffs?  I’d love to know…

    I think the TMM penalties are up to 20.. 

  31. Mr. Biter says:

    Big news.  MM just picked the Caps to win tonight on HNIC radio. Will pass on further “expert picks”.

  32. Treefingers says:

    Satisfaction came in a chain reaction
    Ovie’s not enough, so he had to self-destruct
    The heat was on, Habs rising to the top
    Everybody is going strong, and that is when Halak got hot
    I heard somebody say

    Burn baby burn! Verizon inferno!
    Burn baby burn! The Caps are meltin’ down! 
    Burn baby burn! Verizon inferno!
