Habs prepare for Sid’s Penguins

AUDIO: Sidney Crosby | Evgeni Malkin on playing point on the power play | Brooks Orpik

The Canadiens are in Pittsburgh today, preparing for tomorrow night’s game against the Penguins.

Their host surely has a memory long enough to recall being bounced by Montreal from the Eastern Conference semifinal last season, and they’d like nothing better than to put the Habs at 0-2 with a win Saturday at the Consol Energy Center, their new home.

More details to come from Pat Hickey, who’s on location. Audio is linked above; Habs to come later.

    Never judge another man’s decision poor until you actually have proof of it failing!

    Wile E Coyote always seemed to regret the decision half-way down.

  3. andrewberkshire says:

    1) Crosby

    2) Markov, PP isn’t the same without him.

    3) Boyd. Younger, faster, more energy.

    4) Pouliot, he has more to prove in general, but neither has any room for mistakes.

    5) Luongo, I think most people don’t consider Fleury an elite goalie.

    6) I would not trade Price for either of them, not a chance.

    So if a guy jumps off a cliff it doesn’t really become a bad idea until he lands?


    I’m just asking…

  5. SeriousFan09 says:

    1. Crosby, he wants revenge over Habs making him look bad in May.

    2. Markov, PP quarterback would have led to at least one goal.

    3. Halpern, a faceoff ace was needed on those bottom lines.

    4. Pouliot, found AK was more engaged in the play.

    5. Luongo, Fleury had more to do with his Cup win while Luongo was just good enough to not lose at OLY.

    Bonus: Oh god no.



    – I shall always remember Captain Koivu.

    1. Crosby

    2. Markov




    Bonus: redundant.

    1.  Crosby does it all.

    2. Cammi, we needed one goal to make a game of it.

    3. Meh,not concerned about third and fourth liners, you can find them anywhere.

    4. AK46.  I bet he’s on a really short leash.

    5. Luongo. I was a bog fan of his in Florida.  He was the best player on that team every night.  Now looking back, Florida sucked for a very long time with zero talent up front, so no wonder Luongo was the best player.

    1. Who’s the bigger threat: Crosby or Malkin?

    2. Who did we miss more last night, Cami or Markov?

    3. Both scored last night, which signing do you think was better: Boyd or Halpern.

    4. Who has more to prove after last night: AK46 or Pouliot?

    5. Who’s the more over-rated goalie: Fleury or Luongo.

    BONUS: Would you trade either (with their contract) for Price?


    PS: Did anyone win my ‘guess the score contest’ from last night?  Let me know if you did!  I have a REAL prize (hope you like smelly cheese)!

    Listen to the SmartDog. He knows his poop!

  9. andrewberkshire says:

    And he only played 12 minutes. Sounds like he’s falling out of favour already.

  10. WarHero says:

    Carolina just beat Minny 2-1 overseas, no goals for Gui!

    Never judge another man’s decision poor until you actually have proof of it failing!

  11. Ian Cobb says:

    A lot of people don’t realise how much we miss the Hammer out there. He is past prime for sure, but he knows how to play this game well. Once we get him and Markov back, things on the back end will tighten up.

  12. lefreak says:

    Cammi is going to come out firing tomorrow, no doubt about it…sitting on his rear for a game could well turn into a positive. Calling a hat trick, if our D can play tight we win 4-2.
