The Sabres goaltender was flawless.
As were most of his teammates.
And Boston won.
We better not get shutout.
Man how many horseshoes does Miller have up his ass tonight?
it’s coming just wait
Random Observation from elsewhere: Jersey scored first and then Boston immediately got 5 straight powerplays to help grab (and keep) the lead.
Five straight pp’s? you gotta be F***ing kidding me! What a league.
NJ Goal at 11:05 Ilya Kovalchuk (27)
1 – 11:44 NJ Dainius Zubrus: 2 Minutes for Holding
2 – 0:23 NJ Mark Fayne: 2 Minutes for Hooking
2 – 8:08 NJ Nick Palmieri: 2 Minutes for Tripping
2 – 10:45 NJ Dainius Zubrus: 2 Minutes for Holding
2 – 13:54 NJ David Steckel: 2 Minutes for Interference
When do you ever see the Devils get that kind of run?
Side note trivia: McCauley is wearing Terry Gregson’s old number.
like they needed that
That’s 5 to 2 now
I know … stating a statistic that the habs have been called 3 more times then the Sabres deserves a thumbs down
^ Did you feel that? ^^^ Like a small earthquake? ^^^^^I think a bunch of people are jumping off the bandwagon.
^^^^^^Yep, there it is again.^^^^
quit this one and done … keep pressing offensive pressure
Penalties are 4 to 2 against Habs … they’ll even it up, question is – do we convert?
the puck’s just not going in tonite… complete 180 from minni game
There is no way we don’t meet the Bruins in the first round, I don’t know if I could watch a series between those two.

gomez cammy gionta….is it to much to ask to carry over that last minute of the second into this period???
instead the leaders come out flat….at HOME….sigh…
Picard is not inspiring
This definitely hasn’t been Picard’s best game.
That’s generous. He’s been downright scary.
yep Breezer 3.0
Absolutely no traffic on the Wiz point shot, thats where we miss Max the most.
It’s alot to expect from the rookies we have but they’ve got to dig deep.
Lets go Habs! It takes 1 to get to 2. Jeeez I wish #13 gets it going sometime soon as far as scoring goes.
Picard is Breezer 3.0
What had happened to Kostitsyn there was the same thing that Paul Mara had done to a Buffalo player earlier.
I hope this team is not looking to Thursday’s game against the Bruins. This game is still winnable. Get it done boys!
If Buffaler tries to sit on this 1-0 lead, I think we’re gonna be in for a good time. Gio, AK, Cammy and Dezzy are gettin good sniffs.
Chillin like MacMillan, potty-boy says he’s L. B. Potter, esq.
Tampa’s not doing any better so we still can move up a position with a win… right?
”Playing goal is like being shot at.” – Jacques Plante
Beantown’s not gonna lose … We HAVE to win this one.
It seems like every time the Habs have a chance to grab 3rd, they lay an egg. It would be nice if they could turn it on in the 3rd and not lose ground to the B’s.
rickard’s dark c’est quoi ?
after the 8-1 rout, i told my brother that the habs used up their weekly allotment of goals.. seems to be true
GWG = game winning gionta!
Gio’s gonna tie this baby
Anyone else find this game as boring as me? Habs aren’t trying at all.
Playing like the Wild did on Sunday…lots of standing around watching the Sabres skate
JM has no lead to sit on … CRASH. THE. NET.
Why they only start at the end of the second is beyond me.
I realize there are some rookies out there who are putting up some good pt totals but PK has to be in the conversation for the Calder. Defense is harder to play in the NHL than forward and PK is our best d-man. PLus Skinner’s and Grabner’s team’s are not in the play-offs. That should count as should TOI and time spent against the oppposing top line.
They aren’t out of the game yet. Bring on the third!
Looks like we aren’t going to win this game…they are back to not playing well again…it’s like this game isn’t important and they don’t care if they win it or not
Game is 60 minutes, not 40.
Carey Price is All Hart! http://on.fb.me/CP31Hart
Go Habs Go!
Hey, hey, what the hell? MsK, what the hell?
It’s one goal. Please. Ever hear of the Rope-a-dope? See the last minutes of the period? C’mon.
Sheesh…”all is despair!” C’mon now.
I know Bugs I should be shot…lol…but they aren’t playing well..but I won’t give up on them…go Habs go
If anything, the Buffaler goal sure put the spring back in the Boys’ step.
Please JM, ask your guys to GET THEIR ASSES IN GEAR!!!
Great push at the end, hopefully we keep it up in the 3rd. We need more shifts like that. Crash the net, get players screening in front, get Miller moving and off balance, he’s too good to be beaten by simple perimeter shots.
Finally some offense with 30 secs left in the period. I was getting fed up of watching the game in our end. They gotta bring it for the 3rd.
Bring it old school or with the new hotness?
Old school is the new hotness.
Okay, heading out for work now, thank you hour-plus commute. Will return to watch highlights and engage several of you in furious argument as per my custom tommorow morning.
– I shall always remember Captain Koivu. Habs and Hockey.
Touch a Sabre…Penalty. Tackle a Hab? Don’t see anything. What a BS league this is.
Price has stopped 18 of 19 shots for a SV% of .000 according to NHL.com – are they trying to sabotage Vezina talk? LOL
Habs need to play the same way they played that last minute for the entire 3rd period. If that keeps up we can win this.
Please Mr. Martin. Could you ask your guys to go to the net more? Could you ask your guys to play with a bit more oomph? Could you please, please, please…
Where was that hockey the first 40 Mins JM????????
What line is he on,
“It’s not an obsession, It’s a way of life..”
okay this is better…some sustained pressure and more importantly some action in front of the net
keep this up for the rest of the period – goal or no goal – ill be much happier going into the third
Having an AWFUL time in our own end.
Those of you moaning about the Habs – do you realize three of our four centres are rookies?
and the other one is gomez.
Fortunately for us: that’s why we’re not tied with the Leafs.
Is Gomez a friend of yours or something, the guy is horrible and you can never be objective. He sucks, this year anyway.
And the other isn’t having the greatest season either…
The Habs need to do what the Sabres are doing which is not try to snipe. Only a deflection or a greasy one will pass Miller tonight, as did Price.
Like I said. Almost. Keep on throwing pucks at the net. One will squeak in.
this is why i don’t often read your live blog Mike. you get down on the team so easily and unjustifiably. why not a comment about DD’s awesome defensive play instead of the ship is sinking if not for Carey?
Brutal period. Wake up boys and move your feet.
a very poor performance so far…
Booner, you should program that last comment as a one-key function
along with “gomez is having a brutal game”
Thank god for Carey
At least Price knew what time the game started.
What a load of crap this effort is. I guess they’re all looking ahead to Thursday night’s game.
Pricey is keeping the Habs in it.
DD’s D just stopped them from ending the game
Is it just me or does Buffalo run a lot of interference?
Got my Chara Sucks T-shirt today
why am I only seeing ten comments at a time again?
it’s a new page…down at the bottom of the comments you’ll see “earlier comments”
ahhhhh. Thanks. that’s lame, though.
I don’t understand the comment thing, sometimes I have to click “Newer Comments”
this new layout blows hard
there was a fair bit of sustained pressure in Buffalo’s end there Mike. Miller had to be sharp. Montreal is going to score soon at that rate.
Thats how you play hockey … none of this JM Systematic garbage… this is the team that scored 8 goals last game. Thank God Buffalo converted now rather then the 3rd …they still have half a game to work with …
AK’s got the bit between his teeth, all right. He’s got the bit between his teeth…all right.
No traffic, all perimeter hockey
against miller? no chance
AK47 got one heavy shot.
I miss Darche in front of the net. And Max too.
Are we done giving Cammi a free pass yet? He’s been playing terrible lately…
You will always be a Canadien in my eyes, Saku
Andrei trying to bring some life to these Habs
Is Gerbe shorter than Desharnais? I want to see them standing next to each other.
