Not the best game I've ever watched...it kinda felt like the Habs were killing a PP for most of the third period. I know they were tired but it's not like they had to work a 9-5 in between games. This is their job after all, so I expected more skating. Vodkov looked rusty but that was to be expected. He hasn't played in two years after all. But he did make the play that led to the the second goal. Keeping the puck in was classic him. Not something FULC (Kantberle) or Cantpoli would have done. And why were they on the ice in the OT? Never mind. Go Habs Go!!
I think the goal celebration after DD tied the game is the biggest happiest reaction I've seen from the Habs in years. It looked like a Game 7 tying goal.Hell, they didn't look this happy when PK tied it last year in Game 7 against Boston.Sucked to lose this (even though I'm on the fail train) after that reaction. Next season can't come soon enough. Least Boston won't win the Cup this year.
Myers and Shanaban are gonna have a chat...Not holding my breath...http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=622014
Shanahan: Well Tyler, while we here at Player Safety strongly approve of anyone who hurts or attempts to hurt a Habs player, there are limits on the number of lame excuses we can come up with to not suspend you guys. Yes, yes, I know that Campbell's "normal hockey play" was a classic, buy I have to save that for the next broken neck / concussion situation. On top of all this - you tried to hurt Gomez, that could be a benefit to the Canadiens. We can't have that.Myers: DuhShanahan: Did Shawn Peyton put a bounty on Gomez?Myers: Duh?Shanahan: Okay Tyler. You can collect your "bonus" this time, but next time try and hurt a more valuable player. Not a repeat offender, Gomez wasn't injured, the principle point of contact wasn't the head, Gomez is too short, we will think of something. Now get out of here you big galoot. And next time, get somebody good.Myers: Duh, okay.
According to the Shaneban video explanation, Gomez was hurt on the play. Obviously not enough to keep him out of the rest of the game!Still, at least the Habs finally get some justice.
Here's the hit, I think it was Orangeman who didn't see it.http://www.wgrz.com/news/article/160437/4/Sabres-Tyler-Myers-Faces-Hearing-Over-Hit-on-Scott-Gomez-http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dkr7yn0kw1Q

There has to be some American prep school defenceman in Minnesota the Goat and Timmins have their eye on. Or, even better another Swiss, soft as DQ ice cream D. We'll probably see him/her in the upcoming world championships.
The M - Maybe this is where the Goat is looking then.http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=621646
I watched the hit on Gomez, very dirty, I should be more upset.
We have 65 points, one back of the islanders for the remaining franchise player. Its that simple non-tankers. I implore Kmaxx and Juce to stop sending winning energy to this team. With great power comes great responsiblity.
nah, I don't think so, sorry.
Steve - ain't gonna happen!Go Habs Go!!
I could care less that Big TiTs is having a career year in Nashville, maybe the switch to rollerblades was all he needed.
Sid will play on Thursday.Go get 'em, kid.
Glad to see him back, especially since Phucktards and Pens will meet in first round.
Faksa's name is great for headlines, and swear words. What the Faksa?!
Be afraid, Sens:http://tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=390228

@Steve, I hear you but you may be posting the Tank theory on the wrong site. This isn't HI/O. I just did a quick look at the Habs remaining games, I would say they will play .500 the rest of the way. Vodkov will help some but he is coming off a two year layoff and will not be up to speed with the rest of the league. Toronto on the other hand, have a tough schedule the rest of the way and wouldn't be surprised to see them drop below the Canadiens. The Islanders make me nervous and Minnesota is falling like a piece of Soviet space junk. I can see Montreal falling out of the top 5 for a draft pick. Oh well, as I said they have enough assets to move back up if they think it's necessary. One of the Russians may fall to them anyway.

Makes me miss him all over again and enrages me all over again that they let him go.Good clip, thanks moeman.
Fuck me! Three games for Myers! 'Bout time we got some justice.http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=622068
... and a winning goal in OT ...Hope the fucking sabres finish 13th, just ahead of the leaf.
So if the hit warranted a three game suspension, doesn't that imply that the ref made a mistake in only assessing a 2 minute minor? Should he not have issued him with 5 and a game, thereby taking him out of the equation for what was the winning goal in OT? GODDAMMIT, WE WAS ROBBED AGAIN. EVEN WHEN WE GET JUSTICE, WE GET SCREWED!
Blame fuckface bettman.
This will also give that piece of shit leaf-loving, broons-sucking asshole greg pfuckdaddy smalldickwissindasinksky another opportunity to slime the Habs. Man that turd is a dirtbag.
3 games, beautiful! But yeah, we got screwed over again. They just couldn't stand it if we made it to the playoffs, kick 'em when they're down and keep kicking 'em.Pricks.
myers' next game back is March 21st.Calling Rusty Staubitz.
Beautiful!!!!My love is coming for you, Myers, be afraid, be very afraid.
Bolts vs goons 3-0 near end of 1st.Die broons.
Make that 4-0 end of 1st.Florida vs leafs 1-0 end of 1st.Die leaf, die broons.
Die leaf, die broons.
5-0Stamkos scores his 49th, phat timmy pulled, Turco in nets.
Could collie's broons miss da playoffs?
Looks like the leaf is tanking. Not surprising from an org. that has zero integrity.
Stamkos marks 50th.6-1
Annoyed Habs don't play the Booins anymore this year. I love Turco but he's quite done as an NHLer, even as a backup.
Roach Coach not looking happy, 5-2 Florida,1min to go.
loser leaf lose, tsk, tsk.
broons lose too.
So Burke saying the leaf have too much pride to tank the season:http://www.thestar.com/sports/hockey/article/1144995--cox-maple-leafs-gm-brian-burke-insists-tanking-a-non-starter?bn=1Sorry to tell you think Burkie, but when your team is 2-13-2 in their last 17, whether or not they're doing it on purpose, pride has nothing to do with it. I also like this new conspiracy theory put ahead by the Toronto Star (and others):"...there are those who point to a rumoured relaxation in the officiating standard in January that theoretically punished fast teams like the Leafs..."Give me a fucking break.
"Standing under the hot Florida midday sun, the top button of his white dress shirt undone and his unknotted tie dangling around his neck, Brian Burke refused to give into the heat even as the Toronto Maple Leafs’ playoff chances were quickly melting away." ~ some national post mediot
