Picking up the pieces

Inside the room – Hickey

Leighton lights out – Stubbs

Philly in the movies – Stubbs

Bleu blank rouge – Roy MacGregor

• Maybe the magic has evaporated – Damien Cox

Hot Flyers, anemic Habs – Brian Cazeneuve in SI

Coming up empty – Scott Burnside of ESPN

• Too late maybe, but Canadians jump on the bandwagon

And if you think the Canadiens are in trouble, consider the allegedly mighty San Jose Sharks

    The team would play with more energy if Halak stepped up like he did in rounds 1 and 2 with some key saves.. That Briere goal was deflating given that it happened so early – had Halak made a sweet glove save, I bet Montreal’s confidence would have doubled on the spot.

  2. Ron in Ottawa says:

    what a bunch of homers. It appears that you guys can never see the bigger picture. Yuo act like a bunch of US Republicans- any criticism is unpatriotic. But what would you have been saying if the Habs had missed the playoffs? Would you have thought that JM is the greatest and untouchable?

  3. Bash says:

    Thanks for all the insights! You’re incredibly astute evaluation of the Habs defies logics in every sense. Your fellow trolls must be proud. What are you… a Leafs fan I’m betting.

    …and good riddance to them!

  5. Bob Barker says:

    There’s no doubt Halak starts game 3 but he shouldn’t be completely blameless.  Sure the offense has produced nothing but it’s possible to play well in a losing cause and so far he hasn’t. With 10 minutes left, one solid bounce could have changed the momentum but that third goal killed any chance of a comeback. 

    The whole team needs to be better, including Halak. MAB needs some sort of brain implant that allows Markov to control him from the pressbox.

    I find that too often our forwards are breaking in on goal (even 2 or 3 of them) take a shot and then keep skating until they are behind the goal line.  When a rebound comes out they are too deep to get their sticks on it.  Why not shoot and stop in front of the net.  Give M.L something to think about too like the 2 Habs charging in on him…


    It’s a MAB MAB world.

    I’ve been saying for months to tank and I’m not changing that stance, just take a look at Chicago. how the hell do you think they got to be such a good team?  NOT BY PATCHING!

    I know the truth hurts, but fortunately I’m not a moron like you and I do speak the truth. sob sob sob(from you).

    “What have any of the forwards done, aside from take dumb calls and not do what they’re supposed to do, which is set up and score goals?”


    so true….Gomez’s early penalties in the last two games which negated our powerplays were soooo brutal. 

  10. pic1983 says:

    “Our lack of discipline is astounding. Last night’s game actually saw the refs favoring the Habs. “

    Totally agree! We got away with all the little calls, and even some of the more blatant ones. 

    One of the rare games in these playoffs where the refs actually gave us a break.  Maybe they should go back to screwing us, might light a fire under the team.
