Need some juce!
Checking in, I didn't even see the score but by the excitement in Hughson's voice I knew right away it was bad news for the Habs. Sad to be proven right.
Ok, so....what does IATG mean? I googled it, but I just came up with "I Am That Girl" which.... I don't think applies here.
yes yes.. please reveal. what does that IATG mean?
'Will Tampa's season end tonight or will Montreal advance.'Please explain.
Wow moe, BTW thanks for the ice cream. Love me a double scoop!
who started this thread??(the same idiot who started that olè chant??)
CASH IT FFS
Ooh it's Paquette!
PatCHes!!! *frantically searCHes for a broom*
Daddy PatCHes on his feet.
With Papa PatCHes in the house too!
HANG ON BOYS
OH MY GOD YES!!!!!!!!!!!1
How long until the CBCTSN outrage at the late PP? (I didn't see what happened, but I saw about 4 penalties ignored right before this).
Already started, they say Tampa held on and also got more season pints than Montreal.
Great for Patches to get that monkey off his back before facing (probably) the shaved ape Chara and that orangutan Lucic.
Updated header pic ...
What a fucking great four games to none series.
Oman, IATG was coined tonight, in reference to the cockroaches, Its All They Got!
cockroaches sucking each other off. Their Habs hate is a beautiful thing to display. Sick fucks.
la coocooracha, la coocooracha, lalalalala...
We should make them hold the dustpan.
PatCHes picked the perfect time to score, congratulations on your first playoff goal.
No credit for Montreal, Tampa lost, Montreal just happened to be there.
GO WING GO take them to at least six
Wow, not one word about the Habs WINNING THE FUCKING SERIES IN 4 STRAIGHT or anything else about them on the post-game. I just find it so mind boggling. This is our national broadcaster.
at least they did not speculate about Stamkos signing with the leaf
Perhaps on leaf lunch tomorrow.
Yup, it's still all about what Tampa did or didn't do. The National Broadcaster's hatred for the Canadiens is palpable. I hope Strombo quits on them when they inevitably tried to force the leaf on him this fall.
Would you like some CHeese with all that whine HNIC?????
Really cheap whine to boot.
If I may identify a negative from tonight. Vanek seemed to be channeling Kovalev tonight. But unfortunately it was Bad Kovalev. Hopefully that's the end of that.
I was thinking the same.
He seemed to be trying too many cute little passes. He needs to just go to the net and start deflecting shots or just plain ripping it at the net.
i agree brothers... i was too mikey ribs like to say anything about that.oh well.... as long as the team keeps winning huh?
Do you put gCHuck on the fourth instead of Chip? Pretty awesome fourth scoring line Vampire Dan, Carnival and gCHuck.
CHip's played awesome. Prust? Or do you want Prust's jam against the broons? Then there's Moen. It's great to have too much depth. Tintin for Cube against the dirty fuckers? I'd say yes.
Don't change a thing until you have to. CHip is like a guided missile on the forecheck.
Ginette Reno should just go ahead and clear her sCHedule for the next month or so.
the next five years
Jacques Demers said Ginette used to sing for the 'diques and he told her 'you should come sing for us'.
I am feeling ok about the inevitable contract extension for the coach. Maybe he will need a new nickname, a first three names for one actor. Art for Architect.
Now we got a least a week until next puck drop, be careful what you wish for!
i agree stevo... i woulda prefer that peter get some ice time and a shorter break waiting for da broooons.
Great job by eMTy on calming down the troops. Congrats to the Habs and the coaching staff on an excellent game plan and dominating a young and inexperienced Lightning squad. I don't give a fuck who they did or didn't have in goal they weren't winning. Great, great four game sweep! Keep calm and Carey on.A BIG FUCK YOU!! to the cockroaches. A once great institution, Hockey Night In Canada has been sucked down the ml$e toilet with the rest of the shit that flows out of leafland. The infamous child molester nest called Maple Leaf Gardens still in the news, another 102 charges laid against that usher --- I don't want to even type his name.
Biship has requested a trade to Toronto, says he thinks he would fit in there
I was thinking to post about him pleading guilty earlier today but I didn't want to taint pre-game vibes.
Well let's go check out what tsn is saying. Probably more Hab hatred.
Nope, basketball is the more important game for a Canadian network.
I'm in love with Tampa's coach. Seriously, he is such a breath of fresh air. Says it like it is, no bullshit and not scripted. Excuse me while I go for a smoke.
And he's got lots of free time for gardening...and stuff.
Great hockey moments shared with fellow FHFers!Thanks moeman, goodnight all.
I think the earliest the next series will start is NEXT Tuesday. Probably later. Gonna be a long week+.See y'all around. And good night.
Not to go on about it, but I just rewatched the last 3 minutes (about 6 times) and while they're shaking hands CBC says, "If Bishop plays the first game, Tampa would have won. If the goalie change comes after the 2nd goal tonight, they would have won. Then you have a completely different series." This was among the complaining about how Tampa didn't catch any 'breaks'. This is really starting to annoy me. But whatever, they can spend the next week cheering on their broons. If the Habs do meet them in the next round the hate will get even stronger.
TSN says Habs #1 in post-expansion era teams in best of 7 series sweeps. The other guy pipes in, "Yeah but they've been around longer than the other teams!" Post-expansion you fucknut. In any event, the top 4 are all original 6. Anything to slander our Habs.
CBC's 'recap' of the game is 6 small paragraphs. Their recap of the Boston game (which ended over 30 minutes later) is 14 paragraphs and 3x the length. Just pointing that out.
Jesus, via TSN, "In a 3rd period where the refs seemed to put away their whistles, they blew it!"Apparently it's accepted that it was a penalty. BUT it's the 3rd period of a tied game and therefore it should not have been called. Brilliant.
Oh, now they're talking about how the Habs will do against Boston in the next round. Because Detroit doesn't exist.
Sorry I'm being too negative. I'm just reading all the stories now and it's just sickening.
Very Kaye to the victory party but as I have the day off I shall watch the replay now! Woooooo Hoooooooooooo!
Looks like mclame has caused a shitstorm with his anti-Francophone inanities. Sick fuck being called out is pure delicious icing.
Here's the CBC covering it, so this is probably a toned done version: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/ron-maclean-in-hotseat-over-comment-about-quebec-refs-1.2618801
Orangeman, it's best to just laugh at them all. We, as Habs fans, have to accept the fact that the Toronto based media will in no way, shape or form offer any praise for Montreal's success. The mediots will try to deflect any credit from what Montreal did and find ANY excuse for why the opposition lost. I picked up on the those comments by Hughson saying that Tampa WOULD HAVE WON with no uncertainty if Bishop had started or Cooper had pulled Lindback earlier. How he knows this I have no idea, unless the fix is in. It's funny how they can ignore the fact that Montreal outscored Tampa almost at will, dominated them in their own end and allowed very little extended time in the defensive zone. Other than that 3 minute stretch last night when the Habs stopped skating, I never found Tampa to be much of a threat. Montreal rolled 4 lines consistently while Jon Cooper basically only had 3 lines to work with. They were out manned and out gunned. Other than Stamkos and Palat they had nuthin'.BTW, why wasn't Stamkos given an extra 2 minutes for roughing for punching (Y) in the face and a 10 minute misconduct for screaming and punching the penalty box door? PK would have been tossed for that.Let's all just enjoy this moment, smile and wave at all the Toronto (ML$E) controlled media and laugh their frustrations about Montreal winning.
It's just sooooo hard. I hate injustice.
Thank goodness for RDS.Imagine having to listen to those fuckwits in anglo Canada every game.I was watching the Toronto feed as Mrs. Chester was in the room and doesn't parlay hockey, so I caught Mclame's French ref comments. I felt bad for E Friedman. At least he is a decent guy with some brain cells, but frankly what a bunch of fucknuts.On the hockey side I feel an ill wind blowing and it's not coming from CotU.Go Wings!Go Habs.
Well enough time has passed they cant take away the victory or sweep now. The fact that the curriian of anglo saxon manipulation and ignorance has been pulled back in the process is a bonus.Never forget this all starts at the top. In Canada thats Harpo.
Fire McLame, Fire him today!! Remember if your a Canadian your his boss!
Maclame story on tsn, not surprising that it's not open for comments.http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=450165
Orangeman, last night tsn had our Habs as the main story i/o their broons (since leaf are dead) and I am convinced that they only did that because they likely thought the Habs wouldn't sweep and wanted a defeated Habs to be their ultimate 'main' story.
a voice of reasonhttp://www.hockeybuzz.com/blog/Eric-Engels/Habs-Deserve-Credit-in-Every-Department-for-Sweepi8230/82/59607
I always liked Paul Stewart but talk about telling like it is.http://www.hockeybuzz.com/blog/Paul-Stewart/The-Snake-the-Wolf-and-the-Cooke/196/59584Go Wings Go Habs
I was there live in the heat of the moment. I have reviewed the event, read and listened to all the arguments for and against and still conclude Mclame must go.His defenders maintain that just for appearances there should not be a Quebecois Canadian referring Canadians games. Well just for appearances the Boston Bruins should not be in the NHL. Just for appearances Buttman should be cleaning toilets in Harpo's jail cell. Just for appearances no National Broadcaster who is an employee of the Canadian people should be forgiven for such a lizard brained thought.
He should have been fired late last night or early this morning. That was stupid beyond belief to say that. Basically insinuating that Quebec born refs are unprofessional and cheaters.
From an earlier story in the Gazette.'“I was hoping that they would draft me,” said the Gaspé native, who played junior hockey with Blainville-Boisbriand. “They didn’t, and now I want to make them pay on the ice.For the record, here are the players the Canadiens drafted ahead of Paquette: Alex Galchenyuk (third overall); Sebastien Collberg (33rd), Dalton Thrower (51st), Tim Bozon (64th) and Brady Vail (93rd)."
I think I am ahead of the curve on this one. Black Sails Can Con has never been this hot!!
Letter to the Gazette from Calgary:"Ron MacLean’s comments regarding the inappropriate use of French referees in the Montreal Canadiens vs. Tampa Bay game was insulting to all Canadians who respect diversity and who live in a country that claims this as a value.To think our so-called national broadcaster allows such divisive rhetoric is deplorable and just reinforces the fact that the CBC should have its funding cut (even though I do not support the political reasons the government uses to justify its cuts).The CBC should be ashamed of itself! I know my family and I are.I would love to have someone from CBC provide an explanation to my 6-year-old son, who asked “why is Mr. MacLean saying they should not have French referees?”Finally, to recap a lovely conversation I had with an 86-year-old gentleman at the Banff hot springs Monday afternoon, on the fact that the Montreal-Tampa Bay coverage seemed to be biased against our only Canadian team in playoffs, I quote him saying “I wish our national broadcaster would recognize that there are Habs fans all over this country, and we speak English and French and come from and reside in all parts of this country.”Once again, shame on the CBC. Hopefully Rogers will provide a more balanced coverage and keep divisive ignorant behaviour to a minimum.A soon to be RDS customer ..."Kevin O’ConnorCalgary
How's everybody feeling today?
excellent, pumped, like a member of team destiny.
I have watched all the game...read the reports, listened to mclame and read a load of comments...I am buzzing! The Habs dominated the series from start to gunk hand thoroughly deserved the sweep. The cals or non calks happen all the time to every team. Shut up about them. Bishop would not have made a difference. Stamkos was shut down and the Habs got production and all out efforts from all 4 lines. TFS played lights out (except game 1) and PFK stepped up. RBQ woke up and the fat lady sang for the lBolts.
PatCHes says 'mates told him they didn't his goals till the end anway.
Apart from being a sick fuck, mclame is a bigoted sick fuck. He may have 'apologized' but he will see no further action by the cockroach network. The only upside here is that his true colours have been finally revealed. They aren't red&white, they are blue&white. Did I mention he is and will always be a sick fuck?
Of course he won't, CBC is wears the same colours.http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/montreal/ron-maclean-won-t-be-reprimanded-over-quebec-refs-comment-1.2618801"Ron apologized and clarified his remarks later in the broadcast, saying it would be no different if you assigned a ref from Alberta for a game involving Calgary or Edmonton playing another NHL team."Still, Gilles Duceppe, former leader of the Bloc Québécois, called MacLean's comments "racist" and said the longtime HNIC commentator should be disciplined."He was not talking about a local referee; he was talking about a French referee, which is quite different and just unacceptable, and I think CBC should take measures to discipline MacLean," Duceppe told Bernard St-Laurent, host of CBC Montreal's Radio Noon program.Of course he won't, CBC is wears the same colours.
the Man Media can not stand Montreal winning and Toronto on the golf course. The childish privileged entitled reaction is just the tip of the iceberg.
Except his apology wasn't an apology at all. It was one of those "I'm sorry if I offended you" ones, but worded differently. Friedman and even Stock (ugh) gave him a few opportunities to back out but he kept going. When Freidman asked, "So Quebec refs can't work any games in Quebec?" MacLean could have said something about hometown refs in general at that point, but he doubled down and said yes. Anyway, for a guy who's so worried about the way things look in the league it's odd that he's never mentioned the fact that the father of an active player is a powerful NHL executive who has sent out memos reprimanding refs for making calls against his son's team. The CBC has spent the last 24 hours trying to discredit the Habs, Quebec and French Canadians. It's sick.
I agree with Chris Nilan that mclame meant what he said. mclame is pure cockroach scum.
Apparently Cam Cole agrees with MacLean.
all the Toronto Media agree with Mclame.
Cook gets 7 games. There is no justice, especially in the NHL.
BJs!!!!! What a comeback, win in OT. Suck it Pens
Sidenfreude - 0 pts, -2
sindenfreude thats good!
I don't know why TB is complaining about not having Bishop. The Pens have won two games despite not having an NHL caliber goalie.
Oh my god I'm so bored. Can the next round start already? I have a 6 day weekend next weekend (May 1-Labour Day. May 2-Random school holiday. May 5-Children's Day (yes they have that here and it's a national holiday! Though it might be more somber this year). May 6-Buddha's birthday. It would be nice if at least 2 games fell on this extended break. G7 of BOS-DET goes on April 30 (Wed), so I figure the next round would start May 3 (Sat) at the latest?Does anyone know if they can start the 2nd round while the first round is still going on? I know they did in past years, but we always had to wait to see who won every series because they re-seeded each round. For example, if the bruins win in 5 (touch wood, or not...I forget how this works), could the BOS-MTL series start if the other series go to G7? Or do we have to wait for every series, East and West to end. I figure it would messy if they didn't wait, but just wondering. I don't remember how it was before the 8 seed system. Combination of age and excessive alcohol.
Sorry, I mean to say I know they DIDN'T start new rounds before everyone finished the last one in past years.
Cool little detail about how spread out the scoring has been:3 goals: Max Pacioretty (1) -- David Desharnais (1) -- Thomas Vanek (1)5 goals: Brandon Prust (0) -- Tomas Plekanec (2) -- Brendan Gallagher (3)6 goals: Rene Bourque (3) -- Lars Eller (2) -- Brian Gionta (1)2 goals: Michael Bournival (0) -- Daniel Briere (1) -- Dale Weise (1)All forwards have points, only two don't have goals (a grinder returning from injury and a 4th line rookie). All in 4 games. Hopefully this will carry on. Touch wood! Or not...Again, the expression puzzles me.
