One of the best third periods of the season: 19-3.
But too little, too late.
But credit a gutty effort.
Yup,then afterwards we went to this strip bar called “fanny’s” in north bay and i think it was amateur crackwhore night. Very bad night all around.
Just askin, (and none of my biness)but what did Newfie Dawg do?
Babcock just said Price was the best goaltender in the league right now….also had lots of praise for the habs
It’s a secret clause Sather worked into his contract, he got to pick one team he would never have to play, so he chose the Wings.
What is this “measuring stick” game nonsense? It’s been said about quite a few teams the habs beat, like San Jose. Even if they lose tonight I’m not going to see the sky as falling. This is a good team, win or lose. For once in many years they play as a TEAM not just on the back of one or two skilled individuals who show up “when they feel like it”.
So win or lose, go habs go
agreed. and it one of the reasons why they are successful. If the refs really called the game right in any game philly played, they’d be in the box all night.

Worst. Birthday. Ever.
Wow that brawl was brutal. Who punches the goalie without being provoked? Considering this isnt the first incident in the KHL, that league is losing credibility fast
The new Habs don’t need a distraction like Kovy now. They need a guy that shows up every game and plays the team plan.
I expect PK to be a little more conservative now that he has had the view from the top. We don’t need hot dogs we need relish.
Montrealers always have a big measuring stick, we should do movies 😉
only lushes drink chardonnay. Boone like Boones!!!
Welp, I think tonight’s game will be a better indication of where we stand as a team.
If Toronto beats us tomorrow I wouldn’t think too much on it because we all know the S U C K but they play like their lives depended on it against us every time.
Tonight will be a more interesting game to watch, for sure. Can MTL handle the West’s cream of the crop?
lol,sorry. Its a tough day for me to forget since it happened on my birthday 15 years ago.
Hard to hate a team that plays hockey the right way. Tons of skill, little to no goonery.
Didn’t Gomez miss last year’s game against the Wings as well?
there are lot of champonship caliber teams that i hate ( colts, chelesea,boston celtics,washington caps, canucks,yankees and many others,, did i mention th colts, god i hate the COLTS with passion.) but the wings i like , dunno why
.::DON’T MESS WITH THE MOENATOR!::.
I’m willing to bet there won’t be a tie.
Why did you have to bring that up!!!
There’s a reason that Kovalev gets called out on every team he plays on.
Good post, and I completely agree. My support for HNIT ended when they decided to glorify that odious TOAD Tie Dummy on the same night that Boom Boom Geoffrion’s number was to be retired, the same night that he passed away, and YET the CBC basically pissed on the Montreal Canadien’s by doing what they did imho. Some day the CBC will lose saturday night hockey and I for one will not shed one bloody tear over it.
haha, not bad Mr. Dagger
Sucks bro, I’m living in North Carolina and I watch only on my computer now too
Lets not have a repeat performance from 15 years and 8 days ago against the redwings.
So the Wings are either going to win or lose tonight. Got it.
Sorry, Mr. Boone 🙁
wow. l’antichambre turning into l’attaque a 5, first it was michel langevin, now tony marinaro, whos next jean perron, and pierre page
Fly in your Chardonnay tonight , Mike ?
You hate Cherry? You must be a left wing pinko!!! hahaha
he is such a moron!!
If you’re a University student and serious about your studies? Then tonight and tomorrow night. Otherwise you’re just mailing it in…
I was being ironic. See the Prediction
Detroit has just lost their last three games in a row. How many times does that happen?
They are either going to continue their early season slump, or they are going to come out ready to kick butt.
It’s all up to Carey Price in the first period. If we can survive, then we just might pull off an upset.
Can you ask him about the Iggy for PK rumour ?
The Canadiens have never lost to Detroit on a Friday in December
merci MR. boone. jynx for the night?
One side-effect of having OTL’s which displeases me is the fact they aren’t included in a ‘Streak’ in the standings.
The Red Wings have lost 3 games in a row – though the first of those was an OTL – leaving Montreal and Boston as the only two teams without a 3 game losing streak.
As much as I’m not a Kovalev fan, I have to agree with him a bit about how he’s treated in Ottawa.
Going crazy down here in San Diego..
Center Ice carries the Habs games EXCEPT when NHL Network airs the games. Only problem is NHL Network is not shown on my cable carrier here (Time Warner).
Both the games this weekend (against Detroit and Toronto) are on NHL Network. Wonderful..
So I am relegated to watching the games on my computer .. JustinTV.
Uh Oh!! The Boone jinx, I prefer your ” I have a bad feeling about this one” or the like….
I think we all know that Don Cherry completely advocates settin players straight, and just like Mike Richards, he supported someone trying to teach PK a lesson physically – an irrepsonsible message for a commentator to be sending. Also, in terms of the reply you received, Cherry having watched PK develop is not in any way praising him, it is a statement of fact. The CBC trying to pass this off as Cherry supporting PK is unfounded. As I’ve always said, the CBC has not been relevant for many years. Their views are Toronto-centric, overly supportive of the league, and in Cherry’s case are often biased and bordering on hateful and racist.
Maybe Dave saw wrong Hockey Night?
I hate them too, but I respect the team they have.
I got the same kind of answer from the CBC as everyone else did regarding Don Cherry.
Here it is…
email concerning comments made by Don Cherry about P.K. Subban
following the first game of Hockey Night in Canada’s November 27
doubleheader was forwarded to me for reply by the Office of the CBC
Ombudsman and the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications
It is unfortunate that you believe Don’s comments represented a “hateful vendetta” against player P.K. Subban.
a number of weeks, Subban’s play has been topic for players, coaches,
fans, and the media. Don’s job as a commentator is to talk about the hot
issues around the league, and this is a hot topic.
have reviewed the tapes of Don’s short comments about Subban on
November 27 and comments he made about this player earlier in November. I
must strongly disagree with your assessment of them. He did he say
anything which could be construed as “openly encouraging violence.” He
neither “incited” nor “justified” violence toward Subban. Indeed, he has
not only praised Subban’s talent – noting that Subban is a player Don
has known of and watched develop for many years – but he also stated
outright that he did not condone players deliberately hurting each
Again, thank you for writing. I’ve shared your comments with my colleagues at HNIC.
“Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”
I see Nordiques fans are sending another message that they want a team there…
didn’t you get the memo? the season is just an 82 game measuring stick to see where you can start the playoffs
– Gomez is holding down the suck button
Also, if they were trying to send a message with a pastry (are waffles pastries?) I feel they should have thrown turnovers on the ice. Message sent.
I hate the Red Wings!
Go Habs Go
Friday Night Hockey = NOICE!
They Call Me Shane
Best game of the season and I have to go out with the wife and others after the first period. Then I ditch them to play a game and will not start watching the second period until after 1am. Not much sleeping tonight. Go Habs!
Maybe they are sending a message via anagrams…. WAFFLE = WE LAFF.
Montreal – Detroit > Montreal – Toronto
The only interesting answers are those which destroy the questions. ~Susan Sontag
Good thing they weren’t upset about when someone sits…
Sooooooooo, because awful rhymes with waffle, fans throw the latter on the ice? Hmmmm I gotta think about this.
don’t let school interfere with your education.
waffle = awful
fans expressing their opinion of the maple queefs
Could anybody please explain to me exactly what happened last night in Toronto with the waffles? What’s the deal?
Here’s wishing you never ever ever see another Habs Game!!!
Basically, they’re all must-win, yardstick games.
Can’t be easy to convince a bunch of guys that there are 82 games, every single one of which counts. You gotta admire the coaches & captains who can get their players into that mindset.
I figured they’d play tonight since the players are only arriving in camp tomorrow.
leblanc isnt playing for sure. im not sure about bournival but i would assume he isnt either
Just study all weekend.
Full Breezer 4 Life
Considering the Habs record when you study, I suggest you look to the greater good and hit the books tonight, it’s Detroit.
– I shall always remember Captain Koivu. Habs and Hockey.
Finished an exam today, next is Nutrition of Sport next thursday. Beer and hockey on a friday, oh how I’ve missed you
But losing to the Leafs still sucks! Losing to Detroit, they ARE the best team no?
“It must be love!”
Tonight, it’s better if they beat the Wings. Leafs need points, it’s looking too good for Boston.
Seems like that to me too
The prodigal son returns to the lineup.
Should be a dandy in Motown 🙂
You will always be a Canadien in my eyes, Saku
Does anyone know if Louis Leblanc and Michael Bournival are playing their QMJHL hockey game tonight? Was thinking about checking them out but I’m worried they might not be there because of the World Juniors camp.
At least you don’t have to study tonight AND tomorrow
Big question: Study tonight or study tomorrow?
That’s an awful lot of debate over which rookie D-man sits and which plays.
I have missed the past three games and the Habs have won ’em all (was directing a play, couldn’t be helped) so I will be sitting the games out until they lose. What this means is I haven’t even seen Weber.
This is Montreal’s 29th measuring-stick game.
That’s how it seems to me, at any rate.
