Montreal CanadiensShort-Handed Situations on road: 42Goals: 3Percentage: 92.9%Rank: 1The Canadiens are leading the league in both the penalty killing and power play categories on the road. No team has topped 90% efficiency overall in penalty killing in the salary cap era, but, on the road at least, the Canadiens are doing it. Defencemen Josh Gorges and Raphael Diaz are the guys carrying the biggest workload. Centre Tomas Plekanec, who should be getting some serious consideration for the Selke Trophy as top defensive forward this season, leads the forwards in short-handed ice time. As far as the power play goes, the Canadiens are 13-for-48 on the road this season for a league-best 27.1 percent efficiency.
Les CH rock!
Pleky is a great candidate for the Selke, he should have a shot with Datsyuk hurt. Imagine, those boobs in Toronto wanting Jay McLement nominated. Who? Fuck off you idiots.
Local reporter asked him about it couple of weeks ago, Pleky said he guesses he does not sell him self enough.I hope he does get it, this guy does so much, never has steady teamates, never complains.
GYMFHG Get back to the winning ways.
Wonder if the strike-breakers will get the rink up at the ACC in time for the laffs to get slaughtered by the Hawks.
Be funny if the game goes bust and the cockroaches are forced to broadcast another team.
Yeah, Nadia G!!!Hey Maritimer, even the coach knows: “There are some powerful teams in our conference like Pittsburgh and Boston, but we have to stay realistic and humble about the type of team we have." - MTLike moe (and of course juce) says, we have to stay positive - get to the playoffs and anything can happen. (mostly) Positive vibes from now on.Got the Christmas baking list. Need a few things from the store - no frigging way am I going near that place 2 Saturdays before Christmas. Probably wait and go around puck drop time - give the guys a period to build a nice lead before I tune in. GYMFHG! (MF=Merry F
Re: the playoffs - a bonafide sniper would help. I can live with the D as is, but they know and we know they not a contender as constructed. Too small to run with the big boys. It'll take a couple of years to correct and I have to keep telling myself that. Rome wasn't built in a day.
I just got back from local IGA - no car, no choice, I hate this IGA. Not much of a crowd at all but I over-extended myself on the heavy stuff and don't feel like baking anymore. ughhYes, postitive vibes, if the fucking broons can win a Cup, the Habs certainly can too, just got to get stay healthy when they do. Go Habs Go!!
That broon Cup is tainted.
I'm only going to focus on the positives tonight. Bergevin will get the job done. He just needs time.
we got nice uniforms
BitCHin' Nadia is making 29 his fave Holiday drink.
29's fave holiday drink: "alcohol"
With Jay Feaster out we only have Garth Snow left to make us all feel we could be a NHL GM
In case not everyone is aware, 24CH is shown on CTV Saturdays @4:30pm local.
Clark$on gets 2-game suspension.
Nothing to do with the game, and not sure what made me think of these, but a couple of great memories from this century for the Habs:Hi5 Hilarious. Remember who that goal was against? Imagine if the Sens had Chara & Bishop!A good Kingston boy. Can't help but love this even if he's Cherry's boy.But who can forget the night of Saku's return? #chillsNow back to regular scheduled programming
According to dreger, per TSN, Horton got 15 games.
No cooking for me tonight! CHristmas party! Will PVR the game natch.
and Mitsou too!One time Mitsou and I were in the same dry cleaner. She was coming in to get a sleeping bag cleaned. She said there were stains on the sleeping bag. I tried not to make jokes.
oh right hockey. With Nadia and Mitsou on our side, we can't lose!
Of all the kitty pics we've ever had here, that Xmas one is just the bes...SQUEEEEEEEEEE!!!
Of all the babe pics we've ever had here, that Nadia G about to deep throat bacon one is just the bes... / faints
Have you ever watched bitCHin kitCHen? Some director or cameraman has a foot fetish. or high heels fetish. it's quite, uh, amusing
uh oh 7 comments in a row I'm in steve territory. nttawwt
I like Nadia G, haven't watched in a long time though.
Skipped the baking, put up the tree.
Rock and Roll you 4HFers! My Mom has travelled across the pond to visit for Christmas and I have just moved house...so I am pretty exhausted...but ready to go and ready for the Habs to get back to sinning ways. Been catching up on what I missed...the M - don't give up on the Habs...like you could even if you wanted to...but I feel your frustration. I hate watching the Habs Lise games they should have won because someone down the line forgot to draft a plsyer over 5 ft tall. But I do believe that DGMB has a plan and I believe it will work out. Dudley stuck around because he was convinced it us going to work out. Geoff Molson us no idiot either and rich people don't stay rich by pis ding away the kind of money they are spending...I gotta believe that there is a plan. So bitch if you feel the need - I do and this blog is a Godsend got all us frustrated Habs fans. Moeman s
...typing on an iPad really sucks balls - my above post is shit and full of apple induced errors...long story short here - Moeman is a saint and no matter how bad things get the Habs will still win their next Cup before the Leaf does.Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go!! Go Habs Go!!!
Really hate typing on an iPad...capitalised the leaf - fuck off and die!
Mom's are great!
I love Moms.
Hey kidz, seems like some have enjoyed the content, so far. FHFantastic comments, one and all.Nadia is a fucking babe. Like 29 suggested, you've got to watCH her show's episodes to get the gist of her crazy, cool sexiness (also, see Mitsou, circa ALLWAYS and in Jean Lelpoup's live vids), she is a pure bitCHin' gal. Her voice alone melts me like butter (Mitsou's too, see 'Mon Cowboy'). Throw in some sugar and make caramelt! Like Nadia's Director, I too, may have a fetish, or too or three. Care to guess. Melt with me and GYFHG!
Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs!!!!!!GO GO GO
CBCockroaching:- nice outside shot of a desolate Isles arena- 1st Q: ‘what makes playing in tranna special?’ FUCK OFF!- fried man laughs about the leaf braindeadidness, tries to compare leaf to CHI, weird- pjstuck, makes apologies and says Céline’s suspension was good for the leaf, cue heel- heel, jumps on the ‘what can the leaf do to win’ bandwagon, fix their D he says, see above- I’ve asked time and again, why do mediots spend so much time asking what is needed to fix the(ir) leaf, I know rhetorical but still fun as their team has won shit for decades, keep yipping mediots- Weekes, gives CHI-Hox credit (darren pang not impressed)- Amber, a pure sickening leaf suck-up said something stupid again, laughs off leaf suspensions, yeah its funny, 25% of ALL suspensions are leaf, coincidence?- cockroach panel talks about the Habs game, collectively they ONLY talk about the NYI until …- PleXXXE (would be my next CH Captain)- cockroaches find an Isles tranna-born player and hype him, never ever ask why the ROC hates Hogtown, with a fucking passion, great ‘national mission’ cbc, you sick fucks- heel, code lover, FUCK OFF- fried man needs a hair cut, thinks he is eakins (but not as serial-killer-ish)- heel and fried suck truculent Calgary execock hard (I did not clear this comment with my lawyer)- … and they suck wendelclarkcock, another of the most overrated players ever, wonder why- fried man worries about leaf D, pjstuck said something
As taxpayers who are the reason CBC exists we should all demand the leafsucking cease and desist.
Ahhh.....makes my day when moe rips the cockroaches.Man, did that singer ever butcher the Canadian anthem.
love "fried man". hehehehe
Never disliked the pre-game 'montages'. (remember I teach Final Cut Pro). The sick part is how much of the edited clips are leaf. Pure bias despite a well-produced piece.
let's do this!
Dinner thread!made some delish honey-ginger CHicken and peppersdrinkin raspberry Absolut and 7-up. with limmmmmeee
GYFHG!!!!! time to salvage the week
Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs!!!!!!
I'm feelings wings tonight. 5-1 Habs. Put me down for $20.
agree with the 'Ri. big win comin'
Ooh, I'm monosyllabic now. I like it.
Taco naCHos in the oven.
Damn I hope Parros is ok!
you can't kill him, you can only make him stronger
Man itt's like home ice for the Habs!
Nice work PFK
Refs seem to be letting NY take liberties, Vanek, Boutlon just hit PFK with the stick, earlier NY holding gCHuk's jersey etc...
PFK and Boulton in the box.
1-0 laff ppg.
They are showing more life tonight at least.
Why aren't they blowing the whistle TFS's net was off before they got back to NY zone.
Go Habs go!,
Weird Q:, does TFS off the ice for the 1.1 seconds affect his GAA?
It would be miniscule. TOI would be 59:58.9 I think.
Two teams both struggling to score. Habs need to get a cycle game going, too many one and done.
Let's see, neighbour dropped off some shortbread cookies, some homemade old-fashioned donuts and some butter tarts. Where to start!?!
Send some here please!
I'll eat them as I package them!
Cash it boys!
Cash it in!
Shoot at the net!
Parros won't return.
I find that they're just not getting any 'puck luck' lately.
Sloppy game. Could be crappy ice.
Third time, this season, the 'war room' removes an opponent goal vs. tranna in tranna.
Oh my lord this is boring. I should have just gone to church this morning, at least they have better music.
Nabokov has 'puck luck' gKid shoots, he doesn't even see it.
Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs!!!!!!Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs!!!!!!
Both staying awake and staying positive, both difficult
Steve ain't gonna want to hear this but I think Lego has maxed out his potential. Doesn't have the greatest hands.
fan three or four times and everyone starts yapping
I'm starting to think these guys don't need more practices, they need to take some physics classes.Class 1: You cannot shoot through a defenceman on the ground.Class 2: Lifting the puck over goalies who only cover the bottom half (see: Kings game)Class 3: Passing the puck will not put it in the net. Class 4; Every action will elicit an equal or opposite reaction. Inaction will elicit NOTHING.
The only thats keeping me going is this Guinness black lager I'm drinking.
Everybody, all together now......ooohm.
Are you fucking kidding me?????? 5-1 laffs after 2?
Hope George Parros is OK, figures shit out and decides what is best.Fuck any kind of code that sick fucks like pjstuck and nimrod cherry have to say. FWIW, cherry should give back every fucking dime he made from 'his' rockemsockem shitstained videos and cbc should apologize for all the free advertising they have given that piece of shit.
Started bingeing on Netflix's 'Lillehammer' season 2 last night. 4of 8 episodes in. Pretty good.
okposo should have had an instigator penalty!
No Hitting League. I'm sick of every good hit being a penalty and causing a scrum.
First of all, it was shoulder to shoulder. Second, where's the instigator? Okposo is sent to the box, then taken out. Another revision by the refs.
It was such a devastating head shot that Taveres is starting on the PP. Shouldn't the refs send him to the quiet room if they're so concerned?
Lego, you dirty player you.
just got in, logged on to see replays of the Eller hit. Gally says he can't believe it's only 2 minutes, moments later he says the Gryba hit in the playoffs was clean. FUCK YOU!!!
There's a reason the cockroaches put that ex-broon piece of shit on Habs broadcasts. Guess they can't find anybody better. Sick fucks.
gKid, I love you, but don't try to dipsy doodle over the blue line with no one near you.
Theater of the Absurd.
Score on their fucking asses just to stick it to the fucking refs!!!!!!!!!!!
And WHY is the hnic feed always ass (subjected to the blue team on tv here down east as usual)?
They need to win it for TFS.Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs!!!!!!
Shut up the fucking ole
It's ok clutterfuck you can punch Gallagher the refs say it's ok.
And that wasn't a hit from behind? Oh right, gKid isn't a star player.
Man, it's just bullshit luck and Price's goaltending that the Habs aren't losing. Playing for the loser point now.
Jesus christ, 7-3 leaf over the hawks. We're going to be hearing abut this for weeks.
Fucking laffs are up 7-3
Why are'nt they in front of the net for the rebouds?
First GOOd save by Nabokov all night.
Too bad Lego's stick was broken.
Ack. Expected snow storm starting here.
I need a straw broom, none in my hood to be found, just those 'Oscars'
Anyone remember going to OT with no score in 3?
Three pathetic periods.
gCHuk is the Habs best player tonight. Other than Price that is.
Price could give up 2 goals in 2 games and come out with 2 losses. Even if they win, they still lose.
Go take it for boys!Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs!!!!!!
1 goal for in 3 games. WTF!?
Boy, some scoring would have been nice.
You got a goal iRiRi!
Shot-out for TFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!woooooooohooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
*shut* I was excited.
Ok, yay. Crisis adverted.
Swashbuckling Mousequetaire move to cap it. Belinda carlyle won't like that.
PatCHes holster'd it....new signature?
Credit where credit is due, that was all because of DDD's resilient forecheck.
Sergio on 690:"Good things happen to those who wait...I guess" sounding as bored as a 11 year old at a ballet. Good stuff.
Like the holster move Max. Fuck you McLame.
Ok, hurry up and get on the flight before they start to cancel them.I'm very happy for TFS.
Ok, Go Nucks Go!
Go Canucks!Mañana snowbirds.
I get to watch next Saturday night's game actually on Saturday night in the Winter Wonderland we call Canada. Still stuck behind enemy lines in the GTA, but can't wait!
Also, too, congrats on the shutout TFS.
PleXXXe took 27 faceoffs (17-10). Next most is Lego with 9 (5-4).
The guy who started against the leaf has 7 NHL games. The back up who came in? This was his first. Do the leaf players just poop out lucky charms?
Lucky charms, horseshoes, godseyes, evil spells...and fucking goalies who burn more rubber than the Granp Prix in Montreal in the summer..
Of, course, how could I forget to mention the ORA? That's why there was no call on Princess when he hit the broon in they numbers while clark$on slashed him in the back of the knees - great team-work. Timmythepeeler was on duty, born in the GTA - that also explains his incompetence. Lord only knows how he gets to go to Sochi.
Boring as fuck but a grind it out road win and two big points. Agree with moe, congrats to Carey on the shutout, the mediots will still say he's on the bubble as the starter for Sochi.
If not for the 'team' TFS deserved more than just this one this season.
11:15 AST - not even a note on tsn front page that the Habs exist. Yep, pretty uneventful game but you might want to keep a few tabs on Canada's top team.
Therrien was asked if the refs took Parros out of the game, he said no, the Club did.
Taveres says the hit was clean. Admits he should have had his head up. Classy guy. Wish it rubbed off on the officials.
Refs were crap tonight, a few non-calls against NY. I always liked Tavares, would look good in the bleu blan rouge. I think the refs saw the helmet fly and automatically put the arm up - jerk reaction and likely a new directive from the NHL to avoid lawsuits to call everything.
Absolutely. The reffing is atrocious. I like Tavares, too bad his talents are wasted in that dump.
Before they traded Moulson, boy he and Tavares were they a force to reckon with.
I'm a JT fan. Sucks that he gets stuck on a crap team like the Isles. Be a nice addition to the CH in 4 or 5 years when his contract is running out and he's hitting his prime. Of course, I'm sure he'd want to play for the leaf...everybody does. til next time all.
I saw some idiot leaf comment on tsn that they heard Big Bird was looking for a 'lead'' and they should go get him.(shudders) ugh
1-0 nucks over broons 2min left in the 1st
I hate hnic, only tune in for a game when I have no choice. Since I'd like to see game between the broons and the Canucks, well I have no choice.
Cherry lauds DDD but can't get the name right calls him deharnais.
broons tie it.
We won?! *hic*. Excellent party. *passes out*
4-1 by Yannick Weber 1st in 42 games and the last one was.....yep against the broons.
I don't understand how Marchand doesn't get an unsportsman like. Could you imagine if PK did even part of that crap? No, Marchand is a laugh, PK would be "what wrong with hockey". Nice also to see Iggy has adopted the broon dirtiness.
Eat it, you dirty piece of shit broon.
Hey Daniel, pick up the puck, sign it and give it to marchand.
ratface is such a POS, after the refs break up a scrum he yaps at Kessler and 'kisses his ring' and as the refs take him away he hoists imaginary cup to the 'nucks fans. Go fuck off.
5-1 ppg Nucks Ignila in the box.
This is the first time they meet since the 2011 playoffs. What?
If I'm Vancouver, I'd keep my head up. We all know the "hockey plays" the broons engage in when they're in out of hand games.
Luongo got a stick in the throat by the shaved ape but the officials didn't see it as they were watching a hit behind the net, Luongo was really down for a bit.
6-2 under 4min to go.
6-2 FinalAnd good night.
My goodness, the CBC guys sound like their puppy just died. Hughston "There is no solace in beating the team that beat you in the Stanley Cup final". Seriously? Could you at least try.
The torment they must go through when there's a leaf/broon game, it must be so traumatic for them trying to decide who's ass they should kiss more.
Lot's of 'if you consider the suspensions, the flu, the injuries, fighting to get back', yadda, yadda, kiss broon ass yadda, sick broon/leaf ass kissers.
Though di you see Iginla's finger? ouch, how was he able to get back in the game?
I didn't see, I'm busy making a nice dinner. Had to turn it off.
Expecting 20-30cm of snow today in southern NB. Good thing it's football day and the Habs play again. What's that you say...they're playing Florida? **hangs head**I was thinking after that game last night, I'm sure Chokula would have had an orgasm at the end.
Did we win? I literally fell asleep during the game.ok if we can get another win tonight we'll salvage the week. ok if we can ever score again we'll salvage some pride
Holy crap! An ice cream thread! Nobody knew!
Same amount of snow here, I can't see my stairs or balcony. My son is supposed to come over but I think I'll give him a call not to, the weather's too bad. I have an ignorant neighbour who always throws his snow onto my stairs after I've cleaned them, so I will wait till he's finished before I take the plunge.
