• POSTGAME AUDIO: Jacques Martin
Here’s to a Habs sweep of the goons in the next few and Andrew stop picking fight’s on this site it’s embarrassing!It was only one win ,chillax.
I’m plenty relaxed, and didn’t pick any fights, burnout.
“Burnout”: — that’s great! I haven’t heard that epiphet since I moved out to Vancouver over [unintelligible] years ago. Thanks for the warm nostalgia hit — I’m going to use that again at the next opportunity ;–)
Name calling is always a good way to communicate.
ability is what you’re capable of doing.
attitude determines how you do it
Awesome. Huge win. Philly rescues habs from the bottom of the well ! Luv what patches showed everyone incl his own teAm mates ya im hurt but i sucked it up for my team didnt miss a game and shined huge getting a few key goals. Modern day rocket richard. Big balls lotta heart right on pacioretty !! Hope he rubs off on rest of the injured players and other team mates. Go habs go
The team went more offensively minded tonight….. weird.
Many great performances tonight, esp Cole and MaxPac but I wanna applaud the newbies Nokalainen and Blunden, they really brought size and and some thump, imagine them with Whitey on the wing. Best fourth line in the league? One of them maybe…
Time to call a guy named Lou in NJ and ask for permission…bring Larry Robinson home.
So it being a GREAT night, only question was what happened re Perry Pearn? What was that all about? I purposely havent read any analysis yet, I wanted to put my own hafl-baked theories out there.
Remarks by some posters set me to thinking. Ian noted how the two Randies were changing lines etc. And another poster observed Randy Ladoceur talking to P.K during the game. And Perry Pearn had been in charge of the spcial teams .. and also defense wasnt he?
Well I think this was alll one behind the scenes, but big time, power play gone awry.
In my opinion JM did not seem to keen on replacing Muller. I found that the lateness of the appointments of the Hamilton guys rather strange. I know they were PLAN B but even then it seemed that replacing Muller was like ‘pulling teeth’ for the organization.
So here is my theory. Perry Pearn, being JM’s long time buddy etc wanted to be the kingpin (or kingmaker) behind the bench, knowing that he had JM’s approval. Am I wrong or were the two Randys very ‘silent’ assistant coaches until tonight. It was Perry’s show.
So PG probably talked to some players and to the two Randys and maybe even to JM. Say guys.. tell me what’s really happening here. I mean your defense stinks and your special teams are worse.
Bottom line PG found out that Perry Pearn was doing the ‘power move’ and crowding out the two Randys and had too muuch influence on JM.
So bye bye Perry! Maybe even causing a little ‘tear’ in the JM-PG relationship. Then PG tells JM (in a nice way) that he needs to involve and listen more to the two Randys.
And PRESTO we have a real ‘coaching team’.
This may sound convoluted. But I believe Ian Cobb… look for the two Randys to be more ‘hands on’.
So hold off the firing. JM will be the figure-head coach for maybe his entire tenure. But the two Randys will be greater than lackeyes and will be called upon to contribute more and JM will have to heed their counsel… or else.
So there’s my theory. Perry knew he had JM’s friendship, saw his chance when Muller left, and became ‘drunk’ with power and crowded out the Randys. But it didnt work and PG had to step in…even hinting to JM that he had no choice NOW.
Only way I can explain the firing of Perry Pearn just outta the blue. And the apparent extra involvement by the Randys in tonight’s game. I think PG may have actually found a solution and this may indeed be the start of something BIG… including, as Ian put it, the subtle replacement of JM if not in actuality… definitely virtually so.
This may NOW be the Randys’ team… and from where I sit… that is a good thing.
GO HABS GO! The 2011-2012 season started TONIGHT… and dont worry … it aint too late.
Oh one more thing….. Two Randys one less GOMEZ makes… Expect to see a lesser role for Gomez on the team if my Randy theory is correct.
Guess I should go to bed before I regale you with my JFK theory.
I think you nailed the reason why he was let go perfectly. I thought the two Randys did a fine job tonight, and I hope the team builds on this win.
Sorry, what was the second third of Einstein’s proof of General Relativity again?
Funnyhow people can nit-pick a win.
And Max- Youre a beast
Couldn’t agree more…….with your other post too. It’s a marathon people, not a sprint.
Man, it’s crazy how essentially the same game as some other nights, with different bounces and outcomes can have such different reactions. I guess good to have a win to settle people down
Well done. Nice win tonight. Showed a lot of heart. Strange things happen when Habs v. Broons get together. The night Komaserik got pounded by Lucic Bruins didnt arrive home until 3 am and Habs were waiting for them only to lose 6-1. On the flip side I have seen the Habs blank Boston 6-0 and rout them 8-1 on nights no one expected anything. Boston sports Radio is still hung up on the dive team label but I think Habs can beat them with a nice effort like tonight. Final score Montreal 4 Boston 1. (same score Red Sox won game 4 of 2004 World series 7 Years ago to the day.) This game will not erase the pain of Game 7 six months ago http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5zJkkZewH1w
but it will go a long way in making this season more interesting. Center Ice Free Preview Ends and Habs win- Gomez was around last time Perry Pearn fired midseason. Habs fans beware SNOW tomorrow night in Boston and Pregame Sam Adams fest. Should have the locals revved up. – Be Safe -Go Habs Go -Trivia to stop Bruins fans from bragging. The last two time Boston won the Cup who won the next year ? JC
I’ve got nothing against Pearn being axed. But why is Gill still run out there? He can’t keep up with anybody and he’s caught out of position more and more every game. 1000 games was enough.
That’s what people said before he won the Stanley Cup and helped the Habs beat the Caps and Pens en route to the Eastern Conference Finals.
My great uncle Seamus Anderson once said to me on his deathbed: “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.. but if it sputters and stinks and runs like crap ya may as well replace it”
Yeah, cause we all know Gill is the root of all the Habs’s problems.
I wouldn’t say all the problems……just when he’s on the ice watching the other team skate circles around him.
Sorry, not close to the same player he was in 08-09. Hell, not close to the same player he was last spring.
I know, and I wonder how Emelin feels?
As promised, I wore my jersey for the second time this year – had it on for the only two wins. The obvious solution to the team’s woes is to fire ALL the staff, and just pay me a 12-pack/game to wear the colours.
We had 40 minutes of great hockey, thanks to Cunnyworth and Ladoceur changing the lines and the playing attitude. The two of them will take over this team in short order.
I think we should soak Jacques Martin’s breakfast oats in spoiled milk… that way Cunneyworth and Ladouceur will have the chance of a lifetime to prove they can do it without him!
For the first time this season, we actually had a fourth line that made sense.
*Listen to my instrumental tribute entitled “Habs at War” at http://web.me.com/ptolias/Music/OtherOriginalMusic.html
It’ll be interesting tomorrow. Looks like I’ll be at Hatters again as well, dollar beer night, I’m good with, even though they come in shot glasses….
come over to my place, the beer is free.
I’m liable to empty your stock lol.
the plane ticket to florida would counter balance the free booze anyway. 😀
Actually, my parents live in Port St. Lucie…..
I see you have an axe, can’t quite make out if it’s a bass or a guitar. I should bring my drum kit so we can jam.
Am I the only one who thinks that Gionta is sucking a-la Gomez?
Why not reverse your direction of influence for that line pairing….
As the Randys reduce the Gomez factor the Gionta magic will return. Dont worry!
Enjoyed the game even though we were lucky. Doesn’t happen often but fun to see, especially again Philly. I seriously doubt this team is going to win much with Dumbo and his ex-Senators coaching staff but like someone said, least I wont go to bed with indigestion again.
What ever happened to the Quick Hits. Is everyone involved with the Habs taking shortcuts this year.
That is of course with the exception of Jessica the Reporter.
It’s a recession.. Boone isn’t cutting corners, he’s workin’ em
So nice to go to bed without indigestion. Survived a shaky first and then stopped squeezing the stick. Price stopped a break-away..good to see. But one question…..what is wrong with Gionta. Two years ago he was just like Marty St. Louis…speedy and tenacious. Now..not so much. Is he hurt? And I still want J.M. and P.G. gone, gone, gone.
They will be gone by the Season of Yuletide
It’s about bloody time Carey Price had the Hockey Gods & luck on his side tonight! 3 Pucks got past him & hit the post.
Carey made the big saves when needed. That is all that is required of him.
Max “The Wolverine” Pacioretty …. What a great kid eh!
“Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing”
The Bruins winning the cup last year was all the evidence you need that hockey gods do not exist.
Or Karma …..
anybody know where they sell that white reebok hat that Weber is wearing in the video??
Anyone notice that Randy Ladoceur looks similar to Rick Green.
To you from failing hands we throw the torch, be yours to hold it high.
what were the lines tonight?
Gomez – Weber – Price
Timo – I think you’re wrong about the lines – the best one I seen was. Martin – Ladoceur – Gauthier they should keep them together.
Thanks HH I didn’t get to watch the game tonight had to work. maybe I should quit watching and they’ll go on a winning streak. I’ll start tomorrow night against Boston. I’ll watch the Ball game instead…
Plekanec Pacioretty Gionta
Desharnais Cammalleri Cole
Eller AKost Moen
Nokelainen Blunden Darche
1st PP unit was:
Plex DD Patches Weber Cole
PJ Stock just had a lot of body language after watching the Chara on Pacioretty hit. Very weird body language. Kind of like he was getting tingles all up and down his spine whereas you would expect shivers.
It’s official. PJ Stock is the worst hockey commentator i have seen since the ever popular Don Cherry took the helm back in the primordial days of good ol’ boy hockey. Listenting to Stock fumble through the most basic of french phrases during his incoherent, assanine bruins-biased analysis is like opening the door to a Jehova’s witness in a Jar Jar mask selling novelty fart spray in a can …in other words irritating to every sense simultaneously.
Charge it to the Underhill’s.
A goalpost here or a goalpost there and the Canadiens are down 3-1 after the 1st.
Just like one of the goofball commentators stated on TSN; “The game of hockey can be a funny game sometimes.”
Did Gauthier just pull one out of his ass and shake the team up by delivering enough of a wake-up-call in the firebombing of an assistance coach?
Looking at the standings heading into tomorrow night; Boston and Montreal are both tied with six points and and three points out of the playoffs.
Can Montreal makeup three points in the standings with 73 games left in the season?
The season has just begun!
GO HABS GO
two missed opportunities by Eller and it could have finished 7-1…your point is?
because a puck hit a post sometimes means the goalie did his job and forced the shot, or deflected it, wide.
Price was as good as he had to be tonight. All that matters.
The funny thing is the Habs have been in the exact same situation in 6 of the 8 previous games, but you never see that excuse being made for them around here.
try reading one of his articles….
articles by who?
Andre Berkshire, don’t u follow him on Twitter? My God! His stories are earth shattering?
Sorry, no twitter for me…why am I always a day late and a dollar short?
Consider yourself lucky with his crap.
RC, the Habs have outplayed the opposing team 6 games out of the previous 8 before tonight, and the argument Hobie was making about “goalpost here, goalpost there” and the game is different applies 100% to those games in the Habs favour as well. Unfortunately Hobie is so troubled by someone disagreeing with him that he has to prattle on inanely with insults and sarcasm instead of addressing arguments.
HobieHanson, he’s a proud rider of the short bus.
Uh yeah, we outplayed the opponents 6-8 times and had one win before tonight. Good call!
What’s your drink of choice?
Poor Hobie, your understanding of the game is so piss poor that all you can see is a boxscore. No wonder you think fighting changes games.
No I believe a twitter account and a few lines in HTML makes me a hockey writer like you do. LOL!
I honestly do feel sorry for you. You can lol all you’d like but you’re still dumber than a sack of hammers. Writing about hockey doesn’t make you an expert on anything, but unlike you I’m actually pretty respected. You see, when you actually write well, and support the points you make, people enjoy reading what your write. That would be why every article I write generates thousands of hits. It’s quite apparent that you’re jealous of this because I never mention it, but you always bring it up.
Sorry no one gives a shit what you write, Hobie, and that you have to rely on insults and trolling to get responses out of people who in large part think you’re an idiot. Must be a sad sack existence to be so desperate for attention that you’d rather people think you’re stupid than irrelevant.
Just because the habs out shot the opponent doesn’t mean they outplayed them too. Their shots were weak-ass and to the chest shots, and they couldn’t maintain offensive pressure.
1000 hits? Stop the presses! Anyone could get 1000 hits writing raw raw Canadiens. Christ look how well eklund does, and he just blindly throws shit around.
Someone stated earlier that this team has no character…Look no further than big #67…It’s about friggin’ time this team had a pulse, but 1 win isn’t good enough..Let’s see if we can win the next 2 against the Bruins..
Yes, I’m a Hab fan..Wanna fight about it?
Moen playing quality hockey, best player for us this year.
Yes, and he HAS to stay on the third line. This is where he provides the most quality. Just like Darche HAS to stay on the 4th. JM was probably sh!tting his pants all game today and perhaps was having a feeling that his job is not as secure as he thought. So may have made some moves that made sense out of sheer fear. Whatever works I say, but still can’t wait for his ass and his puppet master Gauthier to get canned.
He’s played with heart every minute of every game in a Habs uniform. Moen is a great fourth line player. prototypical actually.
I mother rocking hope we go into Boston tomorrow and destroy those mother rockers. And then do it again on Saturday.
Don’t you mean father muckers?
I hate those cork soakers!
Welcome to the newer NHL: The National Headshot League.
More like Mother Puckers
They are cork soaking prinks.
I posted about Moen yesterday. The guy can play in any situation he is put in. Sure he could use some more skill, but come on for 1.5 per…looking like a steal this year.
Eller is playing fantastic hockey.
Pacioretty…what do you say about this kid? I say Captain material. Unreal game by a player who “might” have been out for a while, according to the media.
See how tight-lipped this organization is, Expect the Unexpected.
Great game les gars…
Amazing stuff from NHL.com :
Habes ground Flyers to end six-game skid
Habes??? WTF, Какого хуя, блядь???
2) in the article:
“…Montreal’s smaller, skilled forwards penetrated deep into the Flyers end again and again.”
WTF? Small forwards? Moen, Kostitsyn, Pacioretty, Cole?
3) SuperHit of the article:
“It may be a coincidence, but Thursday was the first game in which Price returned to his regular equipment and mask”
Sorry, but since when NHL office is in Europe? they already have Thursday.
4) another remarcable hit:
“Never one to be superstitious, Price decided enough was enough and switched back to his regular equipment for the Flyers game.”
Actually Price is well known as a very superstitious goallie
crazy, who writes that stuff?
In the USA they spell words slightly different than in Canada.
Arpon Basu, and he’s a very good hockey writer.
Hockey Inside/Out blogger
Gazette City columnist
Obviously not at this attempt. Sorry to offend a buddy of yours.
LOL! Now try to translate this in English
“Какого хуя, блядь???” – the closest I could come up with is “WTF, b!tch” but it still doesn’t carry all richness of the colorful and ever so expressive “Какого хуя, блядь???”. Classic.
“Actually Price is well known as a very superstitious goallie [sic]”
No, he isn’t. He’s known specifically for not being superstitious in a very superstitious position. And for criticizing grammar and spelling, you’ve got a ton of mistakes in this comment.
Grammatical errors? Did the colons throw you off? He is pointing out how bad some sites post BS that anyone could write who has access to the interweb.
Why did Price change gear then? I thought he was supposed to wear it for the MONTH of October. Last time I checked, there are still some games left in October.
Not that I really care what he wears, but that was not the point of the post.
Price was told to change his gear. Seriously RC, look it up. Price is known for not being superstitious. That and him being a calm, go with the flow goalie were his defining personality characteristics coming into the NHL.
You guys are hilarious. that is all
… and I do not write for the NHL
good point though )
and also, I’m Russian, however I try to write in English.
I bet you cannot write a single two-words phrase in Russian, Andrew
You are correct. I can’t write a single word in Russian.
Ad Hominem much? You of all people should know what that is Andrew
There’s no ad hominem in that comment. Please point out whatever fictitious one you can find. All I did was point out that it was hypocritical to point out the spelling errors of others while spelling a bunch of words wrong yourself. Maybe more ironic than hypocritical. I was unaware that the OP’s first language isn’t English.
So shit all over someone first and ask questions later.
That Giroux is turning into a little bugger as he has a good role model in Briere…..
Gotta give props to Moen. He’s looked much closer to the Travis Moen that helped kill Sens in the Cup Final a couple of years back.
Love the Flyers without Pronger! They are like a declawed, toothless tiger without the big 30 min cheapshot fest Prongs gives them night in night out.
There’s something to be said for a big lug that gets away with murder on the blue line. Wish we had one of those…
Gomez for Myers? no? uh… what if we throw in Pulashij?
Keep Hope Alive
Price was solid. We capitalized on our opps when we got them…
This core of guys has talent…mixed with the rights drafts, right FA’s, right trades, we could be deadly in a few yrs..with the right coaching of course. No need to panic. in the meantime, it wouldnt hurt us all to see the habs finish last once or twice? A true superstar added into our mix would ignite this team…
Last? Last? not this year!
So I guess Martin listened to that reporter he insulted and played Cole on the power play. Funny how Stubbs & Co. would never ask a question that would possibly put them on the coaches bad list. Hmmm…
Cole had PP time before and after that.
Man was Cole good tonight!
Tied with the Goons at 6 points who sit licking the chops; Hope Thursday night isn’t embarrassing…Go HABS Go!!!!!!!!!
