What a team!

I need a drink.

Maybe two.


  1. andrewberkshire says:

    That’s incredibly simplistic, especially considering Cammalleri has outscored Ovechkin.

  2. ManApart says:

    2 reasons, The Caps are in game 7 and 2 reasons only. Halak and MTL’s PK.

  3. Big Ted says:

    Watson was there in Game 1… wasn’t overly pleased with the reffing there but compared to Game 2 and O’Halloran (the Knuble owns Halak’s crease game), I guess Game 1 wasn’t so bad. They haven’t been awful to us in the regular season, but O’halloran definitely owes us for Game 2 – if it weren’t for him, we’d have won the series already.

  4. Lafrich says:

    Holy crap. Since we went down 3-1, I have been saying this to my family and friends, and posted the EXACT same thing a few days ago in one of these blogs.

    Love knowing someone else is thinking like me! Makes me feel, well…NOT crazy.

  5. wd40 says:

    lol, you guys just reminded me of this bit from Family Guy…  



  6. Lafrich says:

    Why can’t youpack and move until 7:10, then during the intermissions. Then at 9:40 you can pack/move until Saturday at 7:10…

  7. nick says:

    Chris Lee (aw crap, puked a little) tends to do that to the best of us.

  8. Elephant Man says:

    As long as I don’t see Peel or Lee I’m fine.

    I am not an animal, I just reproduce that way.

  9. JD_ says:

    Didn’t know Al-Qaeda #2 Ayman al-Zawahiri was a Habs fan.

    Then again, sanity is not a prerequisite.

  10. fuhgawz says:

    Dan is the man as for Brad not sure

    thank God it isn’t Chris Lee — sorry i just vomited in my mouth and key board.

  11. Jbell10 says:

    Ill start by syaing I am not a big fan of the foil cup myself lol. but what are you going to do.

    We ended a 6 game losing streak at home in the p-offs and we beat the #1 team in the NHL. Our goalie played like a hero and so did the rest of the team. That was a monumental win for the Habs and the fans have every right to dance and scream in the street all night long. There is no argument.

    Laff nation is jealous…

    To You From Failing Hands We Throw The Torch, Be Yours To Hold It High.

  13. nick says:

    As per Stubbs: Dan O’Halloran and Brad Watson are officiating tonights game.

    Anyone know their track records?

  14. forskis says:

    Considering that he is making fun of Habs fans by saying they are acting like Leafs fans is rather poignant and true.  All the pro-Leafs networks know of the Leafs fans short-comings and Habs fans know them too…it is NOT ok to act like those we belittle.  We should have standards unlike Leafs fans.

  15. Jbell10 says:

    Damn right

    7.50 hrs to go……. 8\

  17. joeybarrie says:

    So I was wondering how trading their Captain has affected this team. Instead of looking at how they have done without him, I looked at how Columbus has done with Chris Clark. Since Clark they have 18 wins and 8 OT in 43 games, losing only 16. In the time Clark has joined Columbus, they shout out San Jose, Dallas, Detroit and Buffalo. They lost 8 of the 16 by only 1 goal. The plus minus is -19 since he has been on the team and a Minus 24 before he came to the team.

    Chimera who came to Washington has played 29 games with both teams this season and has 17 points for each team.

    Based on this, if Clark had been with the team the whole season, they MAY have ended up with 88-90 points. Tied with Calgary for 9th.

    IF IF IF  I know… But I am looking at how losing the leader of this team has affected them. In the regular season, it seems not at all. HOWEVER, ask yourself what if they had kept their Captain???? Would they have had this much trouble in the playoffs?

    Remember, Ovechkin is now leading this team not only with his points, but as Captain too. They have other leaders in the dressing room. But now that OVIE is the Captain, does it affect him? When he hears Mike Knuble give out advice and such, does he wonder ‘hey thats my job’…

    I like the moves Washington has done in the last 2 seasons. But trading your Captain??? I dont know. Trading Jurcina and then taking him back?????? 

    I mean how does a team that only loses 15 games during the year and out scores their opponent by a total of 101 goals for the season end up in game 7? I mean they were a +85 for the season and we were -6….

    NOT THINKING AT ALL ABOUT HOW WE ARE PLAYING OR OUR SEASON. Just simply looking at it from their point of view……….

    There may be other teams, but only ONE Club De Hockey…

  18. Jbell10 says:

    I saw OTR yesterday…who cares what A Loafs network thinks, they didnt even make the playoffs. Of course they are going to try and put down Habs fans. They are a joke.

  19. fuhgawz says:

    I do not agree with the win or lose be proud comments.

    This is the Montreal Canadiens we are talking about here there is only one option WIN

    if you win Habs i will be proud.


  20. fuhgawz says:

    Oh how HUGE that first goal is going to be

    GO HABS GO !!!!

  21. badangel says:

    i’m praying they’ve forgotten about the game tonight (how someone could forget.. I dunno) because my dad watched the Pens and Hawks game last weekend when I was over and quite frankly Habs are def priority.

    Whether they win or lose I know it will be a good game and Habs will fight for it.. so for all those damn games I watched all season long where I was wondering wtf was wrong with the team.. THIS MAKES UP FOR IT ALL.

    Maybe we can move after the game.

    I’m so distressed

  22. forskis says:

    Downer coming….people say win or lose, we should be proud of the team…IF they lose, we should not be proud of the team becaue they lost the series and were eliminated, we should never be happy about that whether or not the team was given a chance by the pundits.  The game is not played by the fans nor the pundits…only the players can decide if they are good or not.

    If they win and move on, we should be happy…but we should not be ecstatic…OTR said that Habs fans are as bad as Leafs fans for winning a game in a series…and in recent years that is true:  we make fun of Leafs fans with that “Yonge street parade” joke after every Leafs win and today’s Habs fans are going down the same path (even the fans of yesteryear are acting like this), everything we make fun of Leafs fans about exist now in the Bell Centre INCLUDING that awful tin foil Stanley Cup…the Habs are the Yankees of hockey and with either with a good team or bad team, the goal every year should be the Cup and anything less should be a failure…this should be the goal of every team every year whether they are slated to be first or slated to be last.

    If they lose tonight, I will be satisfied that they were able to match up against a statistically superior team but disappointed and upset that they get eliminated in the first round.  If they move on…then it is just the first step of four steps – nothing more.  We have to take back our standards of success.

    “I am guilty of using elipses…”

  23. Xtrahabsfan says:

    A complete team effort of the superhero type is need by all …..”that means you too Pouliot!”.Go Habs Go

  24. Gr8stFranchizEvr says:

    Nervous excitement for tonight’s game 7 tilt.  It’s morning and my stomach is in knots thinking about it.

    I like that Mtl has played really well in Washington.  I love what Halak is showing and hope he keeps his mojo for this one.

    Cammi, Gionta, Pleks, Gill, Markov and Gorges have played their hearts out!  Love the addition of Subban, and, while he makes me a little nervous with his pinching, I love his confidence!

    I’ll admit I thought the Caps had this series in 4 games.  I’ll also admit that I like that I’ve been wrong!

    Go Habs Go

    ***Shout Out to the HIO-ers in Calgary… sorry can’t make this gathering, but I’ll be cheering for our boys!

  25. Rob says:

    Calgary Hab fans….., a few of us are getting together at Shanks Crowfoot for the game tonight.  If you want to join you can drop me an email (rob_eats_rice@hotmail.com) and i can make sure to save you a seat, in the event it gets a little busy. Hope some of you can make it out and Go Habs Go!!!

  26. Propwash says:

    Is it 7pm yet????


    Goalies in Montreal have two roles, netminder and scapegoat. 

  27. Habscore says:

    No no no ….Fake a back problem and watch the game :)…don’t jinx it girl!!

    — YES HABS CAN!! —

  28. Jbell10 says:

    Habs have gotten better each game of this series, they are looking as sharp as the Miracle Blade III cutting a steel toe boot.

    Caps have been scrambling and are in a stand still with  their jaws to the floor thinking “Shit…we are not that good, eh”

    The Caps have already lost this game mentally!!


  29. SeriousFan09 says:

    Go Habs Go!


    – I shall always remember Captain Koivu.

  30. HabFanSince72 says:

    I like the reverse hex but I would go a step further.

    Let’s start debating the off-season moves we need to become contenders. Why wait till tomorrow?

    any given wednesday…

    go habs!

  33. EastCoastHab says:

    The furniture will be there tomorrow. NOTHING will stop me from this game tonight! I am in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean and nothing shorter than a full evacuation on the rig will stop me!

    You could always check in on the radio?

  34. Chuck says:

    Debbie, if I were you I’d respectfully tell you dad to get his priorities in order.  🙂


    Cheer for the crest on the front of the jersey, not the name on the back.

  35. Chuck says:

    Not to toot my own horn (well, ok… maybe just a little) but I remember some longtime HI/O poster writing about a scenario, after the Habs were down 3-1, which would see them going for broke in game 7.


    Cheer for the crest on the front of the jersey, not the name on the back.

  36. Exports says:

    I gotta say, this series reminds me a lot of the Habs/Bruins in 2008… With the 2008 Bruins reminding me a lot of 2010 Habs (similar coach, played a similar series in terms of falling behind 3-1 and battling back with two stella defensive efforts) and the 2008 Habs as the Caps (except the 2010 Caps are lot better than the 2008 Habs…) Home ice means a lot in Game 7, however the Habs have won more games in Washington this series than the Caps… can’t wait.

  37. badangel says:

    I’m so distraught. My dad who is helping me move announced that tonight will be part 1 of a 2 part move.


    GAME 7!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I’ve watched 79 games this year, attended 2 (I’m 1-1) and have waited for the playoffs like a 5 year old waiting for Santa. When it was 3-1 Caps… I believed it was a 7 game series for a reason and the Habs COULD come back.. I watch Monday and I swear I almost cried



    🙁 Sorry. This is the only forum with Habs fans as passionate as I am who could understand the dismay I am feeling right now. To boot I am getting the flu. So I have to move on Game 7 of an amazing series with the flu. Oh, and I was planning on packing during the game so I am not even packed.

    I can’t believe I am going to miss this game! HABS BETTER WIN !!!! My season of hockey watching can’t end like this! :(((((((((((((((((((((((((((((

    This is cruel

    Here we go boys. Habby does Gabby

    Do it for the ghosts boys, You’ll go down in history.

    Loosey Goosey


    Ooh Aah Habs on the war path

  39. Habscore says:

    If the Habs win, I promise I won’t eat chocolate for the next 3 months!!

    Dont think I can get through today.





  42. EastCoastHab says:

    Don’t want to hear anything negative today!!!! I have been telling all the rest that “we have em’ right where we want em'” since we were down 3 – 1.

    Come on second round. Tickets to Montreal from Newfoundland would be a pleasure to purchase!!!! I am so proud of the way these guys have been playing. All heart and leaving nothing behind. Prediction: Theodore will be in net by 5:00 into the second!

  43. Propwash says:

    Echoing what I said in another thread on HIO, Habs gotta play like they have nothing to lose.
