They were due for a stinker.
• Pat Hickey’s game story
• Quotes from the room
• About last night …
• Pierre Ladouceur’s game analysis
• Hickey grades the team at the quarter-pole
• Hickey and Jean-François Chaumont grade the team for Eyes on the Prize (which should be Eyes on the Price)
My two cents on the game…. Hammer is just awful… Spacek… just brutal… and what can be said about Gomez…. That’s what i think. Get rid of these guys even though it is likely impossible.
A lot of those are good answers (to ‘What do you like most about Justin Beiber?”.
Price is good, Eller “nothing”. Auld wants his hair. But I like Cami’s answer best: “He’s Canadian right? – Well there you go.”
I’m surprised they all knew who he was.
“This is a good hockey team and no matter what situation you’re put in, you’re out there with smart hockey players.” – Jeff Halpern after his winning goal against the Laffs
Had 3 stinkers this month actually, being shut out by CLB, shut out by NSH and than the worst, ****ing away a lead against the Filth.
- I shall always remember Captain Koivu. Habs and Hockey.
Hey a bad game happens once in awhile. During the 1976-77 season. The Canadiens lost to the New York Rangers on Dec. 12, 1976 in Madison Square Gardens. They had only 17 shots on goal during the last two periods. Scotty Bowman was not pleased with Lafleur, Mahavolich, Shutt etc. But they rebounded.
This team just has to keep on using their speed and mobility. When they are not they are not as successful.
“It’s too much for one guy to shoulder. For us, we’re going to do it as a group. It’s about sharing that responsibility win or lose.” – Mike Cammalleri
Due for a stinker? What about Nashville? That was only two games ago.
1. The #1 concern is the lack of a killer instinct. We won’t win doo-dah without it. Especially having an opportunity to get into the Cheese Steaks’ heads beating them twice in a row… what a wasted opp.
2. I’m not worried about Cammy, he’s always been very streaky – remember he couldn’t buy a goal in the last few weeks of the regular season.
3. The prevent defense doesn’t work in football and neither does it work in hockey. Why the h*ll do coaches keep doing it?
4. Yeah, Nomez is way best his best-before date. As a vet, he should be modelling “killer instinct” for the utes. Instead he’s modelling Depends(tm).
Finally, many of you guys are starting to see how useless Nomez. I don’t know the solution, we’re pretty much stuck with him and his eight million $.
5. Saku has 9 goals and 4 assists. He wins big face-offs and has game winning goals and assists and kills penalties – you may remember that.
Nomez has 2 goals and 4 assists and loses face-offs and passes like high school nerds hit on girls.
And now we get LA – whom I see quite a lot here (in LA) who skate hard FOR 60 MINUTES and have a lot of good talent – yeah they’re young but we had better show up for that one.
6. Cary is playing really well or we would be WAY down in the standings.
“I coach hard work” Pat Burns
It has probably been said already, but…THANK GOD FOR PRICE! I always believed in him, and he has proven to us he IS the goaltender we thought he could be. Sadly, our D don’t clear the puck after the initial save, nor are our players up front scoring. The only reason we have won games, it because Price is a beast in the net (notice how now he keeps his body square to the puck?! KUDOS!)… Specek hasto go, or at least be benched. And Gomez is a huge waste of money!…Bottom line, thank god for Price, BEING the Price we drafted
At least the shots against have generally been down this year compared to last year.
I agree about offense, but its hard to say what moves to make considering our cap situation. A lot of cap space frees up after this season, so may just have to tought it out til the off-season.
I would like for this team to have a little more offensive flair as I have found the vast majority of our games this year to be quite boring to watch.
This is the turning point. Lapierre is on fire. He has found his scoring touch. No if only Gomez….
I believe that the Flyers wanted the win more than we did. Perhaps by jumping off to a 2 goal lead made us complacent. It’s just a loss.
There are many bright spots:
(1) Eller definitely has potential if Martin would give him a chance
(2) Nice to see Max score 2
(3) Price is solid, actually brilliant
(4) Despite lack of goal production, AK46 is playing solid 2-way hockey (Martin must be pleased)
(5) PK is fabulous despite an ordinary game last night
There are some perplexing spots:
(1) Martin continual juggling of the lines
(2) Martin’s apparent blindness to Gomez’s lack of ability
(3) Cammy is way up or way down
(4) PP goes and comes
There are some bad spots:
I don’t pretend to be an expert; just a die-hard Habs fan passing my opinion
Habs take on Justin Bieber. This video is f’in hilarious!
He wears converse? LOL!
And Who’s that?? Love it! And Carey = Priceless!
“It must be love!”
wonder if Niedermayer would come out of retirement if Markov is gone for the year. probably not.
Really glad that Briere never signed with us, he is such a hack with his stick that it is embarassing.
Maybe it’s just the Flyer influence.
you dont win many games playing only 20 minutes. oh well these games will happen its a long season. i hope it doesnt happen too often though.
He’s been a great CFL ambassador South of the border for years, next Monday he’ll show the Grey Cup highlights at halftime too! Didn’t the Chargers look great yesterday!
Ya lets remember it was the all-star game that led to his horrible second half. That makes alot more sense than his ankle injury being the cause.
