Not even against the 30th team in a 30-team league.
I dont think this will last long. Its terrible.
I’ve got the same stick with Gordie and The Rockets signatures on it, I have always wondered what it would be worth (not that I would sell it)
Hello everyone! I AM PUMPED! Going to the game, haven’t seen the boys play live for years. (Been pretty much useless here at work all day haha!). Should be a great time, me and my son (unfortunately he’s an Oiler fan). I told him he now gets his first opportunity to see and hear the Habs fans out cheer the Oiler fans in their own building! An Oiler beatdown will make for a perfect evening!
Enjoy the game everyone!
GO HABS GO!!!!
hopefully a good road win..but there are only 4 teams with fewer road points than we have
If you’re an Oiler fan, the good news is that Khabibulin won his start on Tuesday against Dallas by a score of 4-1.
If you’re a Hab fan, the good news is that Khabibulin’s win was his first of 2011. In fact, he had lost 14 straight (before Tuesday) going all the way back to Dec 16th.
There are never any excuses for not taking two points from a bottom-feeder. The Oilers rank 30th in terms of their home record, PP and PK stats. It’s also our first contest of the western swing which should be the easiest game to win.
The boys better be ready for this game, you know the opposition will be up for an all Canadian matchup. With the game being on CBC also, it’d be nice to force them to say something positive about Montreal by us whooping the Oilers. Playing on the best ice tonight should be ideal for our team, skate skate skate
I see a sweep of Western Canada coming, they have not seen much of “the New Price”, PK Superstar or A Habs team with a power forward(MaxPac). We will shock and awe them with our finesse and the system.
holy.. im watching raonic vs stepanek. boy the kid is a beast. hes owning stepanek in serving. and his serves are deadly
** Buck Fruins **
It’s our mission to ensure the Oilers get a good draft pick. Make it so boys.
“Hey Richard, two minutes for looking so good!”
Habs always (pretty much) have a tough time against the Oilers. Since 1981, as a matter of fact.
Saw him at the Aussie open and he was taking a lot of big chances but yes his serve is deadly when on.
The game’s also on CBC by the way.
Home for my reading week, get to watch a game in HD for once!!! Pretty pumped for tonight!! Lets hope for a good tilly!!!

Good, so we are back to the old format again. Nice that someone remembered to put the JUMP TO COMMENT Form LINK on the top this time.
National or just in Alberta, ??
I bet you the live blog change was PK’s suggestion!
My reverse jinx statement is that I think this game is going to turn into a track meet. This will not be good for our D.
I know it wasn’t hi-light reel spectacular, but the goal Maxpac’s crammed in the side pocket the other night was one of my favourite in a while. “Get out of my way” players have been missing from the Habs roster for far too long. He’s definitely an untouchable. Then again, 1995 wasn’t just a bad dream.
If you haven’t seen this video of him jumping, check it out. He could almost jump on top of Gionta’s head!
Coast to coast! A Hockey night in Canada special!
Im from Bellevegas but haven’t been home to see a Bulls game yet this year. What do you think ablut PK’s brother’s potential?
Memorabilia question. I came accross a mini wooden CCM hockey stick with Yvan Cournoyer’s and Jacques Lemaire’s autograph.
Any value other than sentimental?
Not sure of current value but it will increase in time.
On here in Mtl.
I remember Dec. 31, 1975
Would love to see Isles win and a move into first to start the swing!
Does anyone know where I could find a complete list of rosters for the upcoming Montreal/Calgary Alumni game on Sat. Feb. 19th?
I think it is to be broadcast on CBC and have only seen a teaser of a few names of Habs players that are to play.
Do you have access to this info Mr. Boone?
Man, Mr. Stubbs is on a roll with these tweets!
Ohhhh, technology! This chat should be interesting.
Hey Boone I think Edmonton historically gives us more trouble than Vancouver.. which is why I fear tonight’s game.
Heritage game.. methinks Calgary is plain too HOT.
This is the only thing I could find…
looks like the Habs a short a few players… and a goalie (correct me if I’m wrong… lol)
Vancouver dominates Montreal in Vancouver. I know cause I’ve been there year after year, blowout after blowout.
I’ve gone every year since moving out here 5 years ago, except last year (and was glad I missed it)…
But I’ve got my tickets for next week’s tilt! Its going to be one crazy hockey weekend for me… flying into Calgary tomorrow night for the Alumni game and the Heritage classic, then back to Vancouver on Monday and the Canucks-Habs game Tuesday night! WOOOO!
I am flying down with the family to VAn to see the game too. For the cost of the tickets, flights and hotels for me and my three girls, i just know that the boys will pull the vancouver game off.
I’ll be in 307, big Yukoner with three young blond girls. Cheering loud.
Awesome! I’ll take that luck on our side, especially if I end up bringing my coworker who is a big Canuck’s fan… haha.
I’ll have to double check my tix and see where I am (all I know is that I’m somewhere up in the rafters) and I’ll let you know.
Three young blond girls you say…. How young? lol (joking :P)
Lets hope they start this trip off with a bang tonight though!
Gordie and Rocket!!! Worth way more than mine.
Just about to head off to Rexall for my chance to watch Les Canadiens. I’m hoping PK puts on a show
Ruutu and Lapierre on the same team? Oh boy.
I kinda like it. I’m diggin’ the between period vid-caps and it probably lessens the server load from all the refreshing. Mike doesn’t have to compete for bandwidth this way.
Last time PK made a show against the Oilers, we lost

Don’t get me started on this “thing”….
“A fanatic is one who can’t change his mind and won’t change the subject”–Winston Churchill
Hate to be a party pooper, but I really wish Boone would go to the old ways of blogging.
Boston is kicking ass (unfortunately) but Tavares just scored a hell of a goal
Boone, the entire NHL knew the Canadiens were hurting for defensive depth.
– I shall always remember Captain Koivu. Habs and Hockey.
Would Ruttu have come here anyway? … and do we want a Ruttu when we shipped Ruttu-lite to Anaheim earlier on?
Thanks for helping out Islanders… some spoilers they are sheesh!
Singing the “Parises”? Was that on purpose, Mr. Boone?
Cup preview?! Tampa wont make it out of the first round.
I don’t understand. You DON’T need to refresh, so this feature alone makes the new live blogging better. Welcome to 2011 and real time refreshing a-la-twitter
I think I can live with this new new format of Boone-posts only. Better than last time.
I’m just waiting for the Boone-Cam.
I tend to agree. They’re improving but they likely need more gel and seasoning. I won’t discount St.Louis and his leadership to get them far though.
With their D, there’s no way they can see the Cup Finals unless PHI has devastating injuries. They don’t have the D any more than MTL does and they don’t have our goaltending either.
That’s what I meant.
Thanks Drew…you’re right …looks like we need a goalie…
