    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.

  15. The Numbers Game - Jan. 25, 2012
    Wednesday, 25.01.2012 / 9:59 PM / News
    canadiens.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.

  20. 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!!!!

    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.

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.

    @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?

      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?

      Delete
    4. 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?
