SOMEONE THREW AN OCTOPUS ONTO THE RINK
Not like I'm suspicious or anything, but any of you at the game? huh?
Was it a Squid-like -2?
Whoooie!!Wings and things, mmmmmm.
Oh well, there goes the comment clock again.But that's ok, those 3 sets of 20:00 worked just fine.
Looks like the clock is still focked!
Wings & Ceasars, Hab's win & I have the house all to myself for the next six days. Brilliant.
Cats on vacay?
Party at Moey's!
ASG party would be fun.
Moey, skills competition?
YUM. Felt good to watch 'em kick ass for once. Great way to head into the All-Star break. 'Night!
Moe, your buddy over at Pfuck Daddy predicted a 4-1 Wings victory tonight btw. He can suck my (wv) Kokse.
heh, nice pfind, I'm pretty they'll be ripping PFK! and discount the win.
mr. gillis, Looks like the upcoming party at Moey's, don't forget your suits.
We got free wings for like a week. Sweet delicious victory. Also in your face TSN990.
In your face all things tsn. Looking forward to the recap N31.
Done. Sorry, I was eating cookies.
Cheeezzzz. I write a long preamble glorifying the mighty Wings and they shit the bed like that. Holy fuck, I guess most of them were already on the plane to Mexico when they came out of the dressing room, in spirit.Wow, what a night. I knew moe would blow a gasket when dickhead Miller said the "s" word and spen the next 10 minutes defending himself. Hey you stupid fuck, it's tradition, you don't say it. I'd kick him in the nuts if I saw him.Glad to see soperman back in action.@Steve, PFK for Huberdeau straight up? Tough question. My heart says yes but my brain says Subban is currently more valuable. Florida would have to send a top notch defence prospect back to Montreal. I think they have one but I'm too lazy to look it up right now.Enjoyed all the comments tonight, maybe I'll join in next Tuesday.
heh, I don't care if you are senile old fool like bob cold or a card carrying twit salivating Habs hater from tsn, just STFU about shutouts. The sicker part was phlegm & roar laughing their sick fuck asses off.
the M, Did that count as a crush?
@juce, most definitely. And totally unexpected.
Guess NHL doesn't care, standings not even updated, just can't bear to see Habs climb.
@moey, plz advise as to:1. Dress Code2. Time and date3. what booze N' treats do you need us to bring?
Yeah Moey,1. Gluten-free?2. Peeairnut free?3. BYOCaesars?
1. Birthday suit2. Now3. Caesar meth ice cream (and cheetos)
Mr. gillis, bang on with the cheetos.
Moey, I just checked on a few things...If I catch the last flight out of Heathrow on Saturday afternoon I'll get into Dorval about 1.00am (I have to go via Ottawa) - Your ASG party will either be kicking or else (if the games is actually Sunday - see I don't actually know that part of the equation)not started.I can bring the Marmite, pork scratching and real ale, along with the duty free Vodka for those killer Caesars!Let me know...
Habs site shows 6-2, good help is hard to find. Hire me!
Ah, all in order now. Habs in 11th spot, just 20 points behind the Wings.GO HABS GO!
As of this comment, the game day thread is at 236 comments. The delivering 29 is working out the legal finely printed details for ice cream distribution. I suggested a wheelbarrow of rocky road be brought to the Party at MOEY'S!!!.
The Numbers Game - Jan. 25, 2012Wednesday, 25.01.2012 / 9:59 PM / Newscanadiens.com MONTREAL – Here’s a numerical look at the game between the Canadiens and the Red Wings at the Bell Centre on Wednesday night.796 – Number of days that have elapsed since the Canadiens last hosted the Red Wings on Bell Centre ice, dating back to Nov. 21, 2009. The Red Wings would walk away with the shootout victory after the Habs came back to tie the game at two.1 – Number of players on each team’s bench that are graduates of McGill University, with Mathieu Darche graduating from the Montreal institution with a degree in commerce back in 2000, and on the Red Wings’ side, head coach, Mike Babcock earning his degree in Physical Education back in 1986.1,136 – Representing Nicklas Lidstrom point total over his 20-year NHL career, a number the Canadiens won’t have to see get any bigger on their watch, with the perennial all-star absent from Wednesday night’s game with the flu.131 – Number of players hit by the Canadiens’ Alexei Emelin before the Russian defenseman finally hit the back of the net for his first goal as a Hab, beating Jimmy Howard with a booming blue line slap-shot.1 – Number of hits thrown by the Canadiens over the game’s first frame compared to Detroit’s 12 – the Habs opting instead to focus on the offensive side of their game, lighting up Jimmy Howard for 4 goals before the period was over.6 – Number of times that Detroit’s star netminder has given up four goal in a game this season – with the Canadiens being the latest team to accomplish the feat, doing it in under 20 minutes of play.21:53 – Amount of time needed by the Canadiens to let Cage au Sports customers cash in on some free wings thanks to their five goals – a record in 2011-12.1 – NHL ranking of the Canadiens’ penalty kill after Wednesday night’s game. The Habs would kill off all four of Detroit power plays to pass the New Jersey Devils as the league’s best PK.11– Number of players in the Canadiens lineup that made an appearance on Wednesday night’s scoresheet, including David Desharnais coming through with a three point effort.
respectfully you forgot-1 (negative one)the number of non-controversies made up by the gleeful media when PFK was benched for a stupid penalty.
Whilst here, this joint doesn't hop without all of you. Thx for making it 4HFun.
moeman, If not for you, well....thanks for allowing us to be here.
"I'm not going to watch any video at all," said dismayed Wings' coach Mike Babcock. "I'm going out for a drink."me toohave a nice week everyone
i did not sleep all night. :o) i guess i can shut my office door at work today.
Fellow 4HF commentariat - I followed the comments on my phone last night until there was a 2 goal 1st period lead. The time zone thing can really mess with your body clock and I've had/have a full on week. juce was rallying the troops and I appreciate her efforts to get the punctuation correct!A beauty win but from the scoreline, not many 2nd and 3rd period shots, which shouldn't be overlooked.Not sure what PFK did, but it looks like his ice tie was reduced considerably - could some one please fill me in...JT's article on PFK was a great read and I echo her sentiments. "Hey Teacher! Leave them Kids Alone! (sorry I have been playing a lot of Pink Floyd in my car recently).For any of you familiar with the very English theatrical oddity that is Pantomime, you'll appreciate that three of my kids are appearing in a local am/dram production of Aladdin starting tonight and running through the weekend. I manage backstage for the company so I will probably not see the ASG, but I might drop in and out of comments depending on how things run.We need to keep the positive momentum when the Habs get back to business next week, so everyone use this time to channel the good work that has been done since Saturday and build from there.Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!!! Go Habs Go!!!!
RC explains PFK benching to the media.http://video.canadiens.nhl.com/videocenter/console?catid=66&id=152523&navid=DL|MTL|homeRelated:"It was a selfish penalty he took," said Cole. "We had the luxury of a four-goal lead to let him know you have to have discipline.http://tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=386103
About this party at Moey's, can you give me a 10 hour heads up?
If we get 15 hours, I will drive and pick you up along the highway on my way up! :o)
OK, I'll be the guy with the Habs jersey standing on the side of the highway in Sussex freezing his ass off.
the Maritimer, Make sure you're not wearing defective gloves like ference, a finger could freeze right off.
KmaXXX, Here's to the offspring being voted as the 3 stars, cheers!
Thanks juce! My only challenge is what order to rank them...
About that octopus, it's tradition in Detroit.http://proicehockey.about.com/od/history/f/detroit_octopus.htm

Puck Daddy never dissapoints, he gives 3rd star to a Wing for breaking Price's shutout, how can the rational mind find a star on a team that gets beat 7-2.
Just checking in to make sure we still won. Wheee!!!!!
Our Habs will skate into the ASG with pride.
Yoo hoo ! Oh Steve ! Stop looking in that mirror, it's gonna crack mate :)
you would have to look long and hard to find any evidence I have been anything but 100% a believer (if you dont count yesterday)
Important message - I updated the post with the long-form video highlights after a win so we can relive that game for days to come
thanks 29, the only way to watch hockey
Merci 29, will watch again and again.
@ Steve, thanks a zillion! Salma all the way baby!@ Moey, OK so did I get this correct, party starts in 10-15 hours, bring booze, meth, ice cream and cheetos? Please provide directions, thanks. :)
@N31 - even stranger is that someone sat with an octopus in his pocket for three hours
Since I was watching on RDS, I did not catch the on-air idiot like some of you. If I was there, I would have thrown more than an octopus and not on the ice either.http://video.nhl.com/videocenter/console?catid=35&id=152563
I'm not climbing on any bandwagon. I'll take last night for what it was: a well played game by the Habs against a much better team who left for vacation early. It was enjoyable to watch but it doesn't change the fact they pretty much have to win out to get in eighth place. Nope, they're not fucking with my mind anymore this year. I'm looking forward to next season, a Chokula and Goat-less one at that.Let's see, if Moey's party starts about 1:00pm EST on Sunday, I'll have to be in Sussex by 2:00am AST when soperman comes by from Halifax. I'll bring a case of Moosehead and a bag of Grand Manan dulse.
I'll bring a flat of Keith's and a forty of Old Sam plus Nathan MacKinnon, Marty Frk, and a couple of other Halifax Mooseheads to bolster the Habs roster. (kidding)
I hear there's a party...can I come?
I can bring wine and scotch, my specialties. If Mrs. n knew what the scotch bar and wine cellar were worth she would blow a fuse! (blow a fuse CHrist how old did that make me sound?)
Actually booze is a great investment, not only does it hold value over time, when you take the empties back you get 10 cents.
Not here, Quebec Liquor board does not take back their bottles. Hypocritical since prior to phasing out paper bags, they started to charge 5cents for them and then phased in re-usable bags (at a cost) citing it was better for the environment and yet they don't even recycle by buying back liquor bottles they sell.
What day, wing glow, passed my performance review (it was my harder than Gomez shot that got me over the top), and I am a few confused websurfers away from 20,000 individual page visits on my iconic blog.When the last soldier leaves Iraq and the world sees how easy it is to flush $4 Trillion down the toilet, it makes one wonder, what if George Bush had been a fan of Kim Stanley Robinson instead of Tom Clancy.
I just went over the top, and my teachers thought I would end up in jail, no, 4 people deliberately and 19,996 people who don't know how to interpret Google results know.
@soperman, I saw the Mooseheads play the Sea Dogs last weekend. Nathan McKinnon is going to be really good. Marty Frk surprised me, he's got a sniper's shot and isn't afraid to go into the "dirty areas". He may fall into the Habs wheelhouse if they end up drafting in the middle of the pack like they always do, like Beaulieu last year.When PFK finally gets his head screwed on straight, he and Beaulieu will eventually form a good PP tandem. Nathan will be much easier to rein in than PK, not as much a free spirit. Speaking of which did anyone notice last night when PK got his first shift in the third period after his benching, the first thing he did when he got the puck was go for a big rush up the ice into Detroit's end. He almost got caught up there, I think Scrabble covered for him. Randy Ladoucer probably wondered WTF is up with this kid?
RC can either harness him or ride him, they should practice PFK rushes in practice, it sucks he makes a great rush and then has to beat 3 men, cause no one moves up with him, idiots.
It's encouraging for the Mooseheads but the Seadogs are still miles above them. Your 'dogs are real contenders.
Okay, virtual ASG party planning should commence. So, who's coming, what dish are you bringing, your booze of choice and what are we wearing?
I'm there.Big pot of homemade gumbo (everything grilled). CaCHere's mix.Negroni punCH (Mount Gay rum, Campari, Prosecco).BeaCH shorts, a DEVOlve t-shirt, a smile.
I'm picking up some fresh oysters, lemon & hot sauce on the side. I'm very fond of Kir Royal, so I'll start with that. I'm going to wear a new dress that I bought in the Caymans.
Oh BABY! fresh Oysters, love 'em. Moey what can we bring for the cat(s?) I'm sure Steve has a sackful of catnip.Sounds like I'll need to bring a couple of bottles of white as well, waddaya thinking for desserts? Should I bring ice wine? Or is it a less formal kind of a finger food thing?
Ahhh...Virtual gathering at Moey's - this is gonna save me a bundle on airfare - so I'm in for sure. I will bring two things - one food dish and one beverage option. Firstly, I will bring the nachos - laden with cheese, spring onions, green peppers and tomotoes. I will include the wife's special sauce that includes a hint of horseradish and some sort of tomato based stuff which she refuses to fully disclose to me - but trust me here gang - it is awesome!Now here is where things get interesting - for my choice of beverage, I will offer you up my favourite snowmobiling drink from years gone by. The "Smokey Mountain Coon Caller" is a shot glass filled 2/3rds with Disarona and topped with Jack Daniels.I have a white Habs jersey (used to be their home jersey) that I will wear - it doesn't get out of the cupboard much over here...Last panto finishes at 18:00 GMT so that should give me plenty of time to clear up and get home for the virtual flight to Moeyland.Hey - I read that Diazling was in the rookie competition - does that mean he plays in the game? Or jjst the skills stuff?
I think Diazling is only in the skills comp and will spend he rest of his time with N31.
Guys this party is going to be some kind of awesome. Food & booze picks are great so far. One of us needs to win the loto so we can do this for real one day.
Hey, dutch, Gatineau is not across the river from Hull and it is pronounced Lac Leamy (Lee-me) not La-may. Also, you need more lipstick.Bonus, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W666iljksc4
“I’m hoping that I’m going to play again before the end of the season but I don’t have a timetable,” said Gionta.
I AM WORRIED!* I have heard there is ZERO chance Subban is traded...things can always change, but I would be shocked here.. schmeklund
Add cheetos and ice cream.
No way they trade PFK no way.At this point in time there is zero sense to it, no upside.He will be just as valuable (more?) next season.Jesus CHrist Steve, I don't think I can handle that shit anymore. I'll stick with Scotch.Think Moey will let me smoke cigars, probably not....*sigh*
I think thoroughly modern Moey will let you smoke them, on the deck. Bring a coat Mr. n.
heh, they had a leaf jerseyed schmuck pushing the Stanley Cup on the Rideau Canal. Bizarro!
our father, who art in heavenplease let the Laffs losekeep their streak goingand ensure they miss the playoffsAmen!
I second that.
@moey, just a thought...you better specify to Steve that your party is NOT pants optional.
Ottawa fans screaming leaf sux is such a sweet sound. it'll be heard all weekend and the CotU mediots will whine and whimper en mASSe.
I think Chara is the most frightening thing I've ever seen.
Love the leaf sux screams.timthomass is an ass.
This show is lame, just want to make sure our Pricey doesn't go last.
leaf picks TFS™, says its 'tough calling him'. Fuck off. Keep booing him Sens fans.
Truly a face only a mother could love.
Pricey! By far the coolest yet....I'm so proud. *wipes a tear*
So true.~~~leaf sux!
And the best looking....what's up with all the big beaks?
Only guy with a personality there. Hilarious. Chokes on his water, takes a bow, doesn't shake Chara's hand, carefully chooses his seat.
You know what they say about big noses.
Nice catch 31, didn't notice the non handshake. Bloody good on him.
Big nose = tiny brain
He's also playing musical chairs. Every time you see him, he's in a new seat.
I smell a conspiracy from the shaved ape and politically incorrect timmy to try and poison TFS's water bottle.
Just popping up from my blankie. Back later.
Does anyone remember Timmae dissing Picey last year? Tea party twit.
Alfie is a classy cool dude.
Good crowd, they show good taste.
Diazling plays with Price! Keep the boys together :D
Diazling looking a little nervous. Don't be shy sweetie they're gonna love you.Glad he's with TFS.
Congrats to the kid!
Whatever you do DON'T LET SPEZZA LAUGH
meh, duthie is now a tsn leaf homer.
heh, 'pick kessel' give that fan the car!
heh, 'kessel's kar' give that fan the $20k!
So with the draft in Hull, and the game in Kanata...is any part of this event actually in Ottawa?
Draft is in Gatineau, Hull was folded in a few years back.
Price on RDS, man he looks wasted. I think he actually drank the water.
The hockey fashionista in me is annoyed they just recycled last year's All Star jerseys...
All Star thread will keep you up all night, day, weekend, skills competition, exciting game.
