Liveblog: Super Sunday

The Canadiens got a power-play goal.
They got a shorthanded goal.
And the W lifted them into 14th place.
Lemme hear you say Wooooooo!

Carey Price was very sharp to earn the shutout.

A goal by Scott Gomez would have been the icing on the gateau.

But it was not to be.

Biggest news of the day: Huffington Post reports Renรฉ Angelil has bought Schwartz’s.

There goes the Plateau …

  2. third generation haber says:

    It doesn’t matter if Gomez scores! For 7 mil per season he should be a 40 goal scorer. He needs to be burried in the minors so that we can spend 7 mil on a superstar, or on 2 very good players. What a difference that would make!

    Will tomorrow be the day?

  4. It’s not natural for a team to try and lose. Actually unless you’re not a man at all, losing is not an option. That’s why a luagh at people who want them to lose, it shows what kind of people they are.

    Makes for great laughs though. ๐Ÿ˜†

    You sound like a Springsteen/Peter Gabriel collaboration that never happened

  6. The Jackal says:

    We got a role model fan here.

  7. smiler2729 says:

    Shaker Heights eh, Cleveland… so you spent a year there one weekend? yuk yuk yuk

    Geez Slychard, you drove two hours to Columbus on a lazy summer day? That’s quite the jaunt to see a ghost town… or did you mean the Erie PA area?

    Whichever, a pretty depressing area no matter which way you go around here

    • slychard says:

      @SMILER, it was a summer day to forget to remember to forget, yet you remember to forget through stories of remembering to forget. Like a US license plate… I remember to forget.

      Kiss my hAbSS!!!

  8. slychard says:

    Egad SMILER. I lived in Shaker heights (Cleveland) one year and drove through that area one lazy sunday summer day…like driving through a ghost town. feel for you. At least I have poutine to look forward to…

    Kiss my hAbSS!!!

  9. jedimyrmidon says:

    I’m not expecting the Habs to rebound and turn their season around after this game. I actually hope they don’t move up to 10th or 11th and hang around there.

    It’s always nice to see games like this where everyone does their part: a nice mix of forward pressure, good PK (which is unfortunately more dangerous than their PP), great saves by Price, etc. Everyone on the same page.

    But I wouldn’t be surprised if they lose their next 3 or 4.

  10. christophor says:

    meh. can’t help but want to see them win.

    also, it’s not like they’re going to lose every game here-on-out

  11. smiler2729 says:

    Being a Dolphins fan since 1976, I can’t root for the Pats.

    So tired of Tom Brady too… I guess that makes me a Giants fan tonight

  12. habsfan0 says:

    Scott Gomez will score a goal against Pittsburgh Tuesday night.

    Remember where you read it first.

    • otter649 says:

      Against Pitt last season was when Gomez got his first goal of the season as well being a GWG………

    • habsfanforever7631 says:

      lol how many times will you say that?

    • Welks says:

      Play the kids. Lets see what they can do and don’t dwell on the mistakes. Sign AK for a sensable contract,looking at the available free agents there there is not much of an upgrade.

      Gill, Campoli, Kaberle all available. Moen can go for the right trade a 2nd would be worth it. Play Gomez forth line minutes just to get some return on investment and buy him out next offseason.

  13. habs17 says:

    WHY are ppl happy this is the worst thing taht could of happend what do u guys want to finish 10 and be awful again we need a top 2 draft pick stupid fans

    I support Scott Gomez

  14. Hate82 says:

    at least they’re not quitters. I’m afraid it’s too late but it’s a good way to look at the young players for next year as well as the Regulars we’re gonna keep. good game for the guy’s that showed they still belong in Montreal.

  15. smiler2729 says:

    Almost to NY-PA state line… 4 more hrs til Columbus…

    Keep me posted on the SuperBowl

  16. Ottawa won’t be making the playoffs this year.

  17. Bripro says:

    Gerry (HabsBurlington), if you’re out there….
    the moment of truth is upon us!
    Gronk is playing.
    Pats over Gs, 31:28.
    You heard it here first.

  18. boing007 says:

    If someone wants Gill, let him go. Leave the young players alone and let them develop.

  19. Cape Breton says:

    Amazing!!! We won a game!!!! And we’re all so happy.

  20. HabFanSince72 says:

    A bit of a setback, and to a rival.

    Still … 30 games to go.

    Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.

  21. slapshot777 says:

    Great game today guys. Habs are not going to lose every game for the rest of the season as much as some on here would like.

  22. Haven’t had the chance to say this much this year, but good game! Have a nice afternoon in front of the Super Bowl. I’m going to hang with my kids! Smiling after a Canadiens game for one of the few time this year!

  23. smiler2729 says:

    Thx Slychard, actually headed to Columbus area, will go to the Jackets-Wild on Tuesday….

    I’m getting used to watching bad hockey so it should be great!

  24. Danno says:

    Gomez fetches the puck for Price.

    The $7.5 million puck boy.

  25. AndyF says:

    Crap! We can’t even talk properly… ๐Ÿ™

    Edit: I mean “tank”, not “talk”. ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. slapshot777 says:

    Hey DorvalTony Price gay a shutout his third. Don’t figure we’ll be seeing you here today. Price just shows you up you coward. You only come here when the Habs lose. What a troll.

  27. Propwash says:


    Don’t let the wultures getcha.

  28. Can’t believe Carey didn’t score.

    10/10 on the way ๐Ÿ˜†

    Boone: “Jets Timeout. Planning their two-minute/ three-goal drill.”



  31. slapshot777 says:

    Should have been awarded a goal.

  32. Propwash says:

    POST again Pleky!!!!!!!

    Don’t let the wultures getcha.

  33. Mr. Biter says:

    Put GOMEZ on. NOW

    Mr. Biter

  34. Danno says:

    Please get an open netter Price.

    It would be the icing on the cake.


    “Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”

  35. smiler2729 says:

    Jets need a Field Goal

  36. C-Sword says:

    Put Gomez on the ice now!!!

    Empty net? For the love of Gord, put Gomez out there!

  39. manu07 says:

    How was that a penalty and LL was held the whole way up the ice. Ridiculous

  40. Propwash says:

    9.5 on that dive….

    Don’t let the wultures getcha.

  41. danhabsfan says:

    If you let the trip go in the Jeta end, you have to let that one go too

  42. HabFanSince72 says:

    People talk about trading Gill and Campoli, but why would anyone want them?

    Gill is only useful on the PK, to the point where we need to dress 7 D.

    Campoli is simply not good.

    I wonder if a playoff team might be talked into taking Kaberle. He is a plus and scoring a point every other game on a very poor scoring team.

    Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.

  43. ont fan says:

    S o which defenceman would the Blues be after , Campoli?

    • Cape Breton says:


    • RGM says:

      Maybe Gill. They’ve got a surprisingly weak penalty kill (20th) so they could use the help.

      GO HABS GO! 2011-12 is probably not our year!

    i just hear the same word by Simpson again Overplayment! But PK has done two on ones for how many years? He completely blew that…..

  45. smiler2729 says:

    The weird thing on an iPhone: there’s no REPLY option so I can’t really reply to anyone’s post in a thread and I don’t know who’s replying to my posts…

    Better than nothing though

    • slychard says:

      @smiler. I replied. Good luck in upper NY. Soon enough I’ll be in MTL drowning my sorrows in poutines.

      Kiss my hAbSS!!!

  46. manu07 says:

    Matthew D needs to be removed from his line up. He’s almost completely useless.

  47. Bertuzzi says:

    I wonder if Plekanec enjoys playing with Darche.

  48. Maybe I missed the play but #27 should be in the box, he needs the rest from the shift and Cole should on the ice PK as he’s one of the Habs hardest workers.

    Odd MOve Coach.

  49. slapshot777 says:

    RC this why you don’t put players like Darche on the top two lines of a team. Pleks having a good game sets Darche up for the fourth and burying goal and instead we still only have three goals and are now killing a penalty.

  50. smiler2729 says:

    Whatever happened to Bugs?

  51. HabsFanMTL says:

    darche missed another empty net LOL

  52. JayK-47 says:

    “Darche is surprised he miffed that” -CBC

    I’m not.

  53. topher5468 says:

    That penalty is YOUR fault Boone,

    “It’s not an obsession, It’s a way of life..”

  54. C-Sword says:

    Isn’t this the first penalty the Habs have taken for too many men on the ice with RC as head coach?

  55. Propwash says:

    Just hadta be a too many men penalty, lol

    Don’t let the wultures getcha.

  56. HabsFanMTL says:

    Darche is a plumber at best, keep him on the fourth line if nowhere at all

  57. topher5468 says:

    are you kidding Darche, Pleks having a good game, he was due

    “It’s not an obsession, It’s a way of life..”

  58. danhabsfan says:

    Why does Darche play on this team?
    Double shift Gomez… its a 3 goal lead

  59. ffenliv says:

    That right there is why Darche just shouldn’t be playing NHL-level hockey.

    Not only did he miss an empty net with no one pressuring him, he even took some off to make sure …. and still missed.

  61. kerrgte says:

    the key to Pierre’s succes this summer is unloading gomer. With gomer’s $7 mill of cap the team could actually improve. With him in the line-up the disappointment will continue.

    Goofy stats notwithstanding, a $7 mill man has to produce points
