Letang: Save

Max-Pac: Save

Malkin: Sick Spinorama

DD: Save

Neal: Save

Cole: Save

O’Reilly: Wide

Eller: GOAL!

Kunitz: Goal

LL: Poke-check

Sullivan: Sprawling save

AK46: Save

Dupuis: Save

Plekanec: GOAL!

Williams: SAVE!!!


  1. lol, another blown lead. Crazy to think if they had just one natural goal scorer.

    I sometimes wish they would have signed Kovalchuk, but his asking Price was retarded.

    Please no shootout.

    I already dread another otl.

  3. Habbu says:

    Pleks is really starting to p*ss me off

  4. TomThompson says:

    I’d love to see Malkin just get smoked when he comes flying across the blue line…

  5. Habbu says:

    Because the get paid huge $$ whether they try or not

  6. MICP says:


    was that before they became a nhl team?

  7. Rooster says:

    Best line tonight Eller ll and borque!

  8. Bozo McBozo says:

    Have they lost yet?

  9. FlyingFrenchie says:

    Watching our powerplay is like getting a root canal with a jacknife.

  10. Adidess says:

    How can the PP of any NHL team be this bad? They’re not even a threat to score. What happens at practice?

  11. Rooster says:

    I think they should try Eller ll and kostitsyn on the pp

    • jmsheehy19 says:

      I read that as Eller 2, which made me think of Eller 2.0, which made me think of a robot, which made me think of a Robot Eller, which made me think of AWESOME.

  12. gmd says:

    So frustrating to see the same people fail on the PP. Why the hell don’t the coaches try other players????

  13. Ferg says:

    Why is it that some players give everything they have every shift (Desharnais, Cole, Leblanc) and some give us only what they want to give, when they feel like it (Bourque, Kostitsyn, Plekanecs). I realize not everyone has the same skill level, but everyone should be capable of a big effort, even the lowest player on the depth chart. Still too many passengers on this team.
    Blow it up.

  14. topher5468 says:

    Price banging his stick like he’s disgusted at his teams horrible PP, can’t blame him. It SUCKS

  15. Habbu says:

    I am fed up with being fed up

  16. HabFanSince72 says:

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen a powerplay like this.

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


    For the PP?? WHERE IS ELLER?? GOMEZ IS SH&*!!!!

  18. TomThompson says:

    Effing gomez on for the PP again? what the devil!

  19. mrhabby says:

    gomer going to get hot….i know it.

  20. immortalhab says:

    Puleeeeeaase don’t put Gomer in the shoot out. We’d have better luck getting Eller to take a shot from center ice.

  21. HardHabits says:

    So Craperle has really had an impact on the Habs PP eh!!

  22. WVHabsfan says:

    I would do anything for a pp goal here…

  23. temekuhabs says:

    Oh goody we have a PP

  24. gmd says:

    no Gomez on PP please, try Eller for a change

  25. canada4l says:

    Goal on the PP for which team?

  26. topher5468 says:

    Is it me or does Bourque look awful tonight, He’s got no flow and is not going to the net

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

  27. HardHabits says:

    Another shoot out loss looms on the horizon. Unless Gomez scores on his own net quick.

  28. RockinRey says:

    Weber has been good bc he knows he doesn’t figure into Habs plans and he knows he is being showcased for a package.

  29. HabinBurlington says:

    Decline! Please Decline!

  30. This has to be the worst third period team ever to play in the NHL.

    And they blow in shootouts too.

  31. Adidess says:

    Guys, honest question here. I’m watching Kaberle out there, can’t believe my eyes how soft and mistake-prone he is on D for a veteran player.
    Is this the sign of a guy who’s done or he was always that bad? Looks to me he used to be better.

  32. danhabsfan says:

    comom’ that’s obvious interference

  33. Strummer says:

    Pleks -2 tonite.

  34. Rad says:

    Grigorenko will be good, but not a game breaker like Yaku.

  35. habs001 says:

    weber is not an nhl calibre d..has shown no improvement in his tenure here..

  36. sCOTT1243 says:

    Man I hate 3rd periods with this team.

  37. Roy93 says:

    2-2 with with 11 minutes left. I think we know what happens next, wait for it .. Ahahahahhah

  38. Bertuzzi says:

    It will be nice to see a superstar play on this team. Our own Malkin!

  39. jmsheehy19 says:

    I was stunned when Dallas traded Neal. A year later, I’m more stunned.

  40. Rainrocket16 says:

    That is so Pleks this season! Snakebit on breakaways and plays soft in the third!

  41. Rad says:

    James Neal was a helluva pickup for the Pens. Where was The Goat on that one.

  42. blu_blanc_rouge says:

    It’s looking good fellow ‘tankers’

  43. RockinRey says:

    Damn they cant hold leads! What is wrong with this group??

  44. danhabsfan says:

    How can Pleks be so good and so bad at the same time?

  45. RockinRey says:

    Fun game to watch though Mr. Boone. Better than that crap Martin espoused.

  46. Explain to me how Emelin has 2 goals and Gomez has 0.
    How HAL GILL has more goals.


  47. Adidess says:

    The way things are going tonight, Gomez will score.
    Hehe, these jokes are becoming too easy 😉

  48. HardHabits says:

    C’mon guys. Fight for that 10th draft pick.

  49. RiverviewCanadien says:

    Puck luck, sometimes you have it, sometimes you don’t.

    That Eller goal is exactly what Gomez needs to do more often. Take a shot, not give a pass.

    • Stuck_in_To. says:

      Worst player on my team is screaming “shoot shoot shoot” all the time. He can barely skate and at 68 needs to finding a new league (we play against 2o year olds but are an avg. age of 43) but he is bloody well right.

  50. immortalhab says:

    How many flukes could we have got this year if we knew how to hit the net?

  51. Sotxhabsfan says:

    With all of this interest in Gill, Gauthier should trade him for a third rounder, but the other team has to take Kaberle as well.

  52. athanor says:

    And that’s why line-change dump-ins, though I think the puck should be carried in, should be directed at the net.
    Flukes happen.

  53. slapshot777 says:

    Fleury is not that great of a goalie. He has been lucky to be on good teams.

  54. 😆

    Now that’s what I call a shot on net.

  55. jmsheehy19 says:

    I will never stop being amazed he won a cup

  56. RockinRey says:

    The guy has been Known to give up a stinker now and then!

  57. danhabsfan says:

    For all the Price haters…
    that was a softy… bad play. Fluery was cheating

  58. 24moreCups says:

    ELLER!!!! Don’t let up boys!!!

  59. TomThompson says:

    Who just said this team has “No” luck hahaha!

  60. L Elle says:

    Didn’t someone mention a flawed goalie before? LOL

  61. habs178 says:

    I don’t understand how their play can differ from being down a guy to being up a guy or 5-on-5. I just don’t get it. They should have a mentality that they’re ALWAYS on the PK.

  62. Mattyleg says:

    About time WE got a lucky one!!!

  63. habsfaninboston says:

    Another flukie. We’ll take it.

  64. HabinBurlington says:

    The Great Dane!

  65. habsfan0 says:

    Habs should decline the next Pittsburgh penalty.

  66. joshbenn says:

    So who wants a top 3 draft pick?

  67. HabinBurlington says:

    Is there any way that Gomez can be blamed for that goal? He has been the root of all evil for the better part of 2 years hasn’t he?

  68. danhabsfan says:

    Boone – Don’t think that was weak on anyone.
    Kaberle forced him to the outside
    Pleks didn;t let him get his stick in the play
    Lucky redirection off the skate

  69. HNS says:

    Great goaltending then a shartburger. Mr. Softie to the rescue…..

  70. Stuck_in_To. says:

    This team has had no luck this season … to add to it all.

  71. Adidess says:

    I have also heard Bob Mackenzie mention many teams (read contenders) want Gill. We should have an auction for them and not wait until the deadline.
    Somehow nobody seems to be asking about Campoli or Kaberle. I don’t understand it!

    • Sotxhabsfan says:

      Not too much hustle by Kaberle there.

    • nickster13 says:

      We should kindly inform them about Kaberle.
      -“Hi, its Ken Holland, is Hal Gill available?”
      -“Sorry, theres a lineup right now, while youre waiting, how about checking out our other merchandise? One Tomas Kaberle, stanley cup winner, PP QB, veteran presence and currently on special! ”
      -“I’ll take one!”

  72. solomio says:

    Uh oh…here comes the third

    “I figure PG has one or 2 moves left to bring the Habs that extra step closer to perhaps being the best in the league.” – Einstein

  73. JF says:

    The real Plekanec seems to be back. He had more chances short-handed than the entire Penguins team had on their powerplay.

  74. HabinBurlington says:

    Anyone else lose the audio on RDS?
