Miller time


The Sabres goaltender was flawless.

As were most of his teammates.

And Boston won.


  1. We better not get shutout. πŸ™

  2. t1tan5 says:

    Man how many horseshoes does Miller have up his ass tonight?

  3. Jdub1985 says:

    it’s coming just wait


  4. Keith says:

    Lucky prick!

  5. Nahlsy says:

    Random Observation from elsewhere: Jersey scored first and then Boston immediately got 5 straight powerplays to help grab (and keep) the lead.

    • Keith says:

      Five straight pp’s? you gotta be F***ing kidding me! What a league.

      • Nahlsy says:

        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.

  7. SLYDER says:

    like they needed that

  8. Jdub1985 says:

    That’s 5 to 2 now


  9. punkster says:

    ^ Did you feel that? ^^^ Like a small earthquake? ^^^^^I think a bunch of people are jumping off the bandwagon.
    ^^^^^^Yep, there it is again.^^^^

    ***Subbang Baby!!!***

  10. Jdub1985 says:

    quit this one and done … keep pressing offensive pressure


  11. Jdub1985 says:

    Penalties are 4 to 2 against Habs … they’ll even it up, question is – do we convert?


  12. PeriodPain says:

    the puck’s just not going in tonite… complete 180 from minni game

  13. Rudy says:

    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.

  14. Top Corner says:

    Cmon HABS


  15. SLYDER says:

    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…

  16. solomio says:

    Picard is not inspiring

  17. HFX-HabFan says:

    This definitely hasn’t been Picard’s best game.

  18. zozotheclown says:

    Absolutely no traffic on the Wiz point shot, thats where we miss Max the most.

  19. Keith says:

    It’s alot to expect from the rookies we have but they’ve got to dig deep.

  20. Sandy says:

    Lets go Habs! It takes 1 to get to 2. Jeeez I wish #13 gets it going sometime soon as far as scoring goes.

  21. Jdub1985 says:

    Picard is Breezer 3.0


  22. dhenry1234 says:

    What had happened to Kostitsyn there was the same thing that Paul Mara had done to a Buffalo player earlier.

  23. habsfaninboston says:

    No call?

  24. rocketsglare says:

    I hope this team is not looking to Thursday’s game against the Bruins. This game is still winnable. Get it done boys!

  25. Bugs says:

    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.

  26. I_SAY_FIGHT says:

    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

  27. Jdub1985 says:

    Beantown’s not gonna lose … We HAVE to win this one.


  28. Mats Naslund says:

    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.

  29. Kristopher7 says:

    rickard’s dark c’est quoi ?

  30. ooder says:

    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!

  31. samTHEman says:

    Gio’s gonna tie this baby

  32. christophor says:


  33. habs63 says:

    Anyone else find this game as boring as me? Habs aren’t trying at all.

  34. Habbu says:

    Playing like the Wild did on Sunday…lots of standing around watching the Sabres skate

  35. Jdub1985 says:

    JM has no lead to sit on … CRASH. THE. NET.
    Why they only start at the end of the second is beyond me.


  36. ABHabsfan says:

    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.

  37. solsub says:

    They aren’t out of the game yet. Bring on the third!

  38. Kimberly2u says:

    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

  39. Bugs says:

    If anything, the Buffaler goal sure put the spring back in the Boys’ step.

    Chillin like MacMillan, potty-boy says he’s L. B. Potter, esq.

  40. punkster says:

    Please JM, ask your guys to GET THEIR ASSES IN GEAR!!!

    ***Subbang Baby!!!***

  41. zozotheclown says:

    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.

  42. tony d says:

    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.

  43. SeriousFan09 says:

    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.

  44. Exit716 says:

    Touch a Sabre…Penalty. Tackle a Hab? Don’t see anything. What a BS league this is.

  45. RGM says:

    Price has stopped 18 of 19 shots for a SV% of .000 according to – are they trying to sabotage Vezina talk? LOL

    Carey Price is All Hart!
    Go Habs Go!

  46. dhenry1234 says:

    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.

  47. punkster says:

    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…

    ***Subbang Baby!!!***

  48. Jdub1985 says:

    Where was that hockey the first 40 Mins JM????????


  49. SLYDER says:

    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

  50. Keith says:

    Having an AWFUL time in our own end.

  51. HabFanSince72 says:

    Those of you moaning about the Habs – do you realize three of our four centres are rookies?

  52. HardHabits says:

    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.

  53. patience is a virtue says:

    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?

  54. Brutal period. Wake up boys and move your feet.

  55. habs001 says:

    a very poor performance so far…

  56. ABHabsfan says:

    Booner, you should program that last comment as a one-key function

  57. Rudy says:

    Thank god for Carey

  58. Exit716 says:

    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.

  59. Keith says:

    Pricey is keeping the Habs in it.

  60. zozotheclown says:

    DD’s D just stopped them from ending the game

  61. t1tan5 says:

    Is it just me or does Buffalo run a lot of interference?

  62. Rudy says:

    Got my Chara Sucks T-shirt today πŸ™‚

  63. JIMVINNY says:

    why am I only seeing ten comments at a time again?

  64. patience is a virtue says:

    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.

  65. Jdub1985 says:

    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 …


  66. punkster says:

    AK’s got the bit between his teeth, all right. He’s got the bit between his teeth…all right.

    ***Subbang Baby!!!***

  67. SLYDER says:

    No traffic, all perimeter hockey

    against miller? no chance

  68. habsoul says:

    AK47 got one heavy shot.

  69. larisalapointe says:

    I miss Darche in front of the net. And Max too.
    @#$^%$ Chara

  70. captaink4life says:

    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

  71. dhenry1234 says:

    Andrei trying to bring some life to these Habs

  72. habsoul says:

    Is Gerbe shorter than Desharnais? I want to see them standing next to each other.
