    The Centre Ice package blacks-out any game that is being shown on NBC or NBCSN. So there will be a handful of regular season games and ALL the playoff games blacked out for the habs. Not that great of a deal if you have to pay extra to get the NBC cable channels (NBCSN and CNBC). I had centre ice several years ago when versus was still around and missed half of the playoff games, so I switched to hockeystreams. Hockeystreams archives all their games so you can watch the habs games anytime after the fact. ---------------------------------- Fate leads the willing, and drags along the reluctant.

    So who does Galchenyuk replace when he is inserted in the line-up? I would see him with Pleks and Vanek, and move Bournival into Prusts' spot. Bournival has been great so far so he deserves a spot but Prust is playing his former team so it may be good to keep him in. Tough call. ---------------------------------- Fate leads the willing, and drags along the reluctant.

    Crap, I'm already tipsy, I was too nervous. The long break leading into this series against Boston has been really unbearable... I have been nervous all day, I think I need to get a life haha. Here's hoping there aren't too many cobwebs in their legs ---------------------------------- Fate leads the willing, and drags along the reluctant.
  • Comment on Habs’ Markov looks fine at practice (2013-12-09 15:44:03)
    I can't say whether they are deemed reckless or not by the opposition, but they certainly seem to be respecting them as of late. I am also not sure if he is attempting less or he simply isn't connecting as often. Players coming down the wing definitely know to be aware of that hit now. I have seen many players this year grind to a halt at the blue line in order to avoid the hip check. It is a potent threat which I like to see him use. ---------------------------------- Fate leads the willing, and drags along the reluctant.

    I can't imagine he threw himself into the boards. I think it was just a freak accident, you can see his right skate get out from under him causing him to lurch into the boards. ---------------------------------- Fate leads the willing, and drags along the reluctant.

    Both goals were great last night, but Pleks' goal was an absolute thing of beauty. I think I have watched the replay 30 times. It looks like he faked the centering pass to keep Rask off of the post, but I may be reading to much into it. Either way, it was an incredible shot that took a great deal of confidence. His confidence is as high as I have ever seen it and he is having a blast out there. The fight between Prust and Thornton was cringe worthy in my opinion. 30 seconds of preparations and adjustments before they actually engage, and then a real lack lustre effort from both players. They were so gassed and you could see them just going through the motions and praying that the linesmen would break them up. Ellers hit was much more of a game changer than this ridiculous fight. And finally, I am glad that TSN showed Campbell's comments about the Boychuck hit in their recap . Patches isn't a dirty player and it is crazy to hear so many opposing fans call him cheap and dirty. The comments section on the TSN site is an absolute madhouse. ---------------------------------- Fate leads the willing, and drags along the reluctant.
  • Comment on Four games in six nights for Habs (2013-12-02 09:36:31)
    Hockeystreams.com is really good. They show all the games and give you the choice in the available broadcasts. So you can see the RDS stream or watch the TSN/CBC feed or whatever other channel is showing the game. The quality is great and you can stream it through or xbox to your TV. The games are all archived so you can watch them after the fact, I can go back several years and watch habs games if I wanted to! You can pause a live stream and play it like a dvr. They also show all the AHL and junior games, they show the world championships, and they will be showing all the olympics as well. I have watched all the habs games on there for the last 4 years and I love it. I know I sound like a cheerleader but it has been a real life saver for me. ---------------------------------- Fate leads the willing, and drags along the reluctant.
