Just finished watching. -Whoever it was that gave the puck up on the PP to give up that shortie needs to sit for the rest of the season.-Pathetic effort-I've see a lot of hockey, but that tripping call on (Y)Emelin has to be one of the chinciest calls ever. He gets his stick slashed out of his hands and then gets the penalty when the TB trips on it? Chrisfuckinglee-Oh Crankshaft. That wasn't good. Hope the dude is ok.-Not blaming the officiating at all, but it was clear in the 3rd that the refs weren't going to allow the Habs to win this one. Too bad the Habs didn't need any help losing. -TFS was awesome, one of his best performances of the season. -Habs can still get home ice, but need a strong finish.-It's like no one wants that last playoff spot. Caps lose again, BJs lose again, Devils lose again. The leaf win and I'm sure the delusion level has risen tenfold in the last hour.
You want to bench VonT for the rest of the season? Oy!There were more than a few fuckups last night, but road wins over Boston, Detroit and Toronto followed by an expected win over Florida has earned them a pass in my book. That game last night was winnable but chris lee said otherwise.
Not sure how many games Murray will get, but the thing in his favour is that he's never been suspended and he's not a dirty player.
I will have to watch what happened later...wtf is with this team sometimes...
Having had a chance to review and read up, I think it a case of same old same old...at his presser the coach had no reason (his words!) for why PFK played fewer even strength minutes than any other D man in the rink. GCHuk barely scratched 10 minutes on the ice - no one asked about that! The Habs were out coached...they were out everythinged really but first and foremost they were out coached. A few nice hard earned wins in spite of a pathetic coach has perhaps made people forget how utterly fucking shit a coach he is...and he's killing some young talented guys. Cast you mind back to the Panthers Game...if it was pretty much any other team in the league, the Habs would have lost that game. They were out played for 40 minutes. That's the thing with this coach - he can rev the engines for 20 minutes but when it comes to changing gears - when he really needs to have the boys switched into overdrive, he grinds them, misses a shift and the whole thing goes tits up. I really don't think the Habs have the right coach to win a playoff series never mind the Cup. All Tampa Bay did last night was change gears - it was all over! Bishop didn't have to stand on his head for the win - that second goal was never coming - you could see it from the play. If the players aren't playing - be pissed at them - but if the coach doesn't find a way to get them playing, YOU HAVE TO GET A COACH WHO CAN!
Agree with the above.Our coach is just another goat, our system is let TFS play.Half of Tampa's team is rookies, mama let them play.But we are in the playoffs and its a whole new seasonGo You Fucking Habs GoI do not expect much just get to the finals.
As far as penalties go, one game I would like us to just walk off the ice, just take the fines whatever, lay down a marker.Tweeted this but: I have no idea what 95% of the penalties called on Lars Eller are for. "Oh, here's that Eller kid, let's give him an inexplicable penalty."
Douglas Murray phone hearing for match penalty on Mike Kostka is scheduled for tomorrow...11am.
Phone hearing...so does that mean it's likely 2-3 games?
I think a phone hearing is max 5 or 6 but I'm guessing 2 or 3, he has no history of suspension. Then again, I think NHL is waiting to see the extent of Kostka's injury.
Martin Biron says Murray should get min 10 games. Really??
Parti Quebecois Leader Pauline Marois says if the Charter of Values becomes law, the government will help those who would lose their public service jobs find new ones.Marois was forced to address the issue of charter-related job losses once again Wednesday.Her comments come after PQ candidate Evelyn Abitbol said Monday, at a debate at Vanier College, that a doctor wearing a kippa would lose their job a year after the charter was implemented.Read more: http://montreal.ctvnews.ca/marois-wants-to-avoid-job-losses-caused-by-charter-of-values-1.1757272#ixzz2xkEkDNL1So let me get this straight, they create a discriminating situation, but will help them find new jobs. What about the hundreds of thousands of already lost jobs and those looking for work? where will they find new ones? and if the govt give priority to victims of the charter then doesn't that make those who previously lost their jobs and unable to find work victims of reverse-discrimination?
Those people are complete idiots. The PQ that is. There is no other explanation.
as a matter of principle the chater of values is a good idea. The state should be secular. However just like communsim good ideas die when humans try and implement them
OK good we are off hockey.WTF is wrong with F1? Crew curfews, tire restrictions , fuel limits, disqualifications, limits, restrictions and list of things you can't do, not allowed. Jebus H Christ this is a race not a restriction. Just get the baddest meanest biggest nitro guzzeling monster V12 out there connect it to tires and bolt a seat on it. Fuck F1, the namby pambees and anything with the word green in it. Just let the mofos get out there and race!! ... pant ... pant.Oh and while you're at it fuck Queen Pauline and her gang of bigots. They have driven this province to the brink of annihilation with their zenophobic navel gazing racist policies. Fuck them Fuck F1 and just to be complete Fuck the beaners.Go Habs
we made the playoffs seasons over we are already bored
In south america its very common for the refs to be victims of homicide, different culture same problem just saying
I really want more Cdn teams on playoffs, so lets send eMTy to Van for a bag of pucks.
My hope for the game Friday is for the Habs to leave Ottawa with their heads intact. I'd play Budaj to be on the safe side because you know the fat bug-eyed walrus will have his goons run Price.And Crankshaft deserves whatever SHAMaban gives him for that dumb move. Habs players should not be indulging in that Boston shit. Unless it's against the beaners themselves.
So tsn decides to spend it's first 8 minutes (of 22 in a broadcast ½ hour) on, you guessed it, the leaf. Things of great importance:- randi gets to breath for a day- their team matches well against the broons- Clark's son has found his game- run the table because Canada needs another team in the playoffs - but the best was maybe and unexpected revealing of the fucking truth, whilst asking HHoFer paul ranger about the skid coming to a screech, he, ranger, said that the mediots must be 'deep down' relieved because he, ranger paul, said they are also leaf fans
... even better as ranger paul was suggesting the mediots are desperate for, wait for it, a 'championship'. FOAD.
Wendel Clarkson now steal of the century, earns 5 mill with one goal.
Calise de maudite merde de tabarnac! The seps got my cell number and just tried to convince me that my condo's swimming pool might be overtaken by some McGill types! (didn't 29 go to McGill?)
Well, I certainly hope your answer was the same as your opening sentence, well done.
Was 29 also rich when he went to McGill?
It was but in English. The caller, I think she called herself Jeanette, puked a little in her mouth and handed me off to someone called Jeanie.I think she hung up just before I mentioned I had a powerful internet lawyer.
Not sure if 29 was as wealthy then as he is now but I read somewhere he did a really good breaststroke.
You kill me.
I went to McGill! But I certainly wasn't rich. I was the kid working in the caf in the morning and the library in the evening. And the Princeton Review on the weekend. And looking for loose change in the cushions of the sofas in the Law student lounge.

Interesting, reading your comments moe, I just finished watching a segment on the National re: the Quebec election race and the threat of a referendum on separation if the PQ won. The part that caught my attention: 60% of Quebecers don't want it and the majority of separatists are in the 55-64 age bracket. Looks like time is running out for the PQ dream. I don't see them getting back in.Now, back to hockey ---- G Y F H G ! ! ! !
In our first past the post Medieval Democracy 40% is a crushing majority
Yeah Wings! Seems to be the only team interested in making the playoffs out of those 6 teams.
DDD is Habs candidate for the Masterton.

Dead Things win over Boston, good makes them Mad for to nite, but more importantly closes one slot to the slim hope of the leaf. The faint hope clause, what leaf management tells shareholders every September.
How to measure your shot, compare yourself to the Mexicant!! Not for boys only!http://guydster.com/gadgets/fwd-powershot-hockey-training-device/
I am not going to deny it. I am in favour of masturbation. Long years ago I was drawn to a website that celebrated hockey and strippers and with not even a nudge nudge wink wink self carnalization. There was a certain hubris involved. I knew and it was proven later my shot was harder than a guy making 7 million a year. Maybe I over appreciated the grip force of mastabory mitts. No Doubt the laundry or maybe in his case the dry cleaning bill was dragging him down, I do would never center out a guy but you all know who I mean changed his avatar. In this Harper universe I imagined prison terms for self actualization. These kinds of abrupt changes can lead to danger. I fear the photos of 29 giving the Ken Dryden shrine a personal DNA shine.I have lived through some pretty big shot moment. You think MH370 is a mystery? You do not know what happened to me in an airplane lavatory when I set off many alarms. No shit, all the investigators told me I could have brought down the plane.I am an acknowledged expert on masturbation. I can not confirm but I have masturbated in more countries than anybody.Thing about international travel you should appreciate. Most are rich and just banging those trophy wives. I was just a traveling salesman, no chance in non consumer societies to seduce the local population. I can say without prejudice, women in every shape and form are the most beautiful of gods creations. I just say this to pad my defense of being beheaded if I every crash land in Saudi. What frustrates many of my readers, okay its only 4 of 5 is that I repeat a point over and over in an incoherent way.Well folks I have taken all those lessons to heart andIt was not meIt wasMy invisible hand
there are so many reason I only have a dozen or so faithful reasons. Fucking up the link is not one of them. If you are a true believer you will overcome roadblocks, billions of Windows users agree. Do the google thing to see how we are getting a facial.http://thinkingaboot.blogspot.ca/2014/04/invisible-hand-masturbators.html
This is all very deep thinking, I may need oven mitts.
Yep, that Nonis sure is a genius GM, thank God we have DGMB.http://www.theglobeandmail.com/sports/hockey/leafs-beat/mirtle-david-clarkson-and-his-buyout-proof-contract/article17783243/?cmpid=rss1&click=dlvr.it
Nonis is going to up against the cap big time in the off season, his hands are tied behind his back. MB, OTOH, will have tons of cash to lock down his core pieces. Looking at capgeek, it is obvious that Montreal is not dumb enough to sign long term deals like Clark's son. Price has the longest at 6 years, they may go to 7 for PK but that would be the exception. I look for LEGO, a RFA, to be signed to an offer sheet and MB will take the draft picks. The centers on next year's team, as it now stands will be DDD, gCHuk, PleXXXe and CHarger/BlanCHe. I expect DD will have custom made skates with 100cm blades to increase his on ice appearance.
Bonus, Pateryn is looking good. Guess who drafted him?http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pdisplay.php?pid=99569

Murray gets 3 games.
About right. He can use the rest and get Tinordi some ice-time. Hope the Panther player is OK.
Fucale, Gregoire, Gallant and Brisebois honoredThursday, 03.04.2014 / 9:52 AMRapid Fire000Email Comment Print- Habs prospect Zachary Fucale took home two awards at the Gala des Rondelles d’Or, which took place on April 2.

Gregoire won the TELUS Marcel-Robert Trophy for scholastic athlete of the year. The centerman racked up 69 points, including 35 goals, in 65 games while pursuing a business administration education at the CEGEP de Baie-Comeau.- On the same night, the careers of Patrice Brisebois and Gerard Gallant in the QMJHL were celebrated, as both league alumni were inducted into the QMJHL Hall of Fame.As a player, Gallant split his time between the Sherbrooke Castors, the St-Jean Castors and the Verdun Juniors, amassing 321 regular season points and 90 playoff points. He also excelled as head coach for the Saint-John Sea Dogs from 2009 to 2012, taking home Coach of the Year honours in 2010 and 2011, and winning a Memorial Cup in 2011.For his part, Brisebois put up 258 points in 208 games as a defenseman for the Laval Titans and the Drummondville Voltigeurs.

Tonight's leaf/puketeam game is the last on TSN for the season and the panel is on the road at the ACC/Mausoleum. The panel will have their blue and white pompoms and will be heard shouting go leaf go! lead by insidredger, blob et al.
Then, they'll move on to broons.
go broonsDIE leaf DIE!
Yeah. I think I may watch a period or two cos I'm on vacay! Well sort of. Mr. M is away for a few days is so I can gorge myself on hockey. Yesssss!
Nice, big bag of popcorn?
You know me too well, I bought some last weekend. Going to melt some butter to pour on top, yummy.
People actually get paid to write this poorly: "A narrow victory over Calgary Tuesday night wasn't exactly the Mona Lisa he imagined, but it did breathe the slightest gasp of life into the Maple Leafs sputtering playoff hopes." leaf suck up siegel at tsn. Someone explain to me how the Mona Lisa breathes life. Fucking weird.
So Crankshaft gets 3 - fair I suppose and could have been worse. Could help the Habs long term.
I'm OK with 3 games but on the other hand, Gryba got only 2 for actually trying to kill lego and loocy gets nada for trying to sterilize (Y).
Fuck this shit. TSN "you have to be-leaf". I hope the beaners DESTROY them tonight.
Hilarious that they have their entire crew/panel/suckups at the leaf arena. These mediots are desperate as they realize that this is their last leaf suckfest for 12 fucking years.
Good, when the leaf die tonight, it will just mean they`re all gathered for the wake.
The local Provigo had 2xlobster tails for $4. Makes for some great sammiches. Easy peasy mayo mix includes mayo+dijon+sriracha. Buttered and toasted buns make it a sublime meal. Goes well with Stella.
Beaulieu (Bo?) called back.
The lobster I mean.
The deal got even better as the weekly special was over. The tails were frozen and the store manager dropped another 30% off. They only had 6 left. All mine!
Of course but you have to like soft buns.(ciabatta is a bit to crunchy for this sammich)
The softer the better.
tsn's slimy mark masters is really slimy. Just as slimy, kadri and any slimy tsn'ers that quote his slimy comments.
He is a slimey little fuck. Kadri is a fucking dirty little jackal. Can't wait for somebody to target his head with a well placed elbow.
Re: the last leaf suckfest by TSN, I think they still got some rights to regional games for the foreseeable future. The panel can still jack off at the sight of their leaf.
Nice catch.Also, jvr needs a whoopee cushion? Too funny.
His back my ass. It's piles from wallowing in the shitfest they call the leaf.
aww, clark$on got a boo-boo on his toe-toe.
'momentum'? A fluke goal off of bosack isn't 'getting back momentum' sick fucks.
GO BROONJACKETS GO!!!DIE LEAF DIE!
Go Flames, c`mon Squid, go get a hattie.
1-0 CHeez Whizz scores for the BJs.
For the, love of Christ. This sn't going as planned.
Good, clark$son`s back, we all know what that means.
Lots of time for a collapse.
Will the refs give the beaners 6 straight power plays in the 3rd?
So tonight's the night the broons decide to suck (they're still outplaying the leaf, though). Oh well. Go BJs! Go Flames!
You can still feel the tension in the air at the ACC, though. Homeboys are leading 3-1 halfway through a must win game, you'd expect some noise, but it's pretty quiet in there. At least they're starting to accept that their team is prone to collapses. or they're all too busy getting sushi to cheer them on.
Chinless Wonder: "It has been a bewildering set of circumstances in Toronto this year!" What the fuck does that even mean?Holy hell, I hope they die soon.
2-0 BJs, which would mean this leaf game is worthless.
Doobie doobie doo, BJ's score 2!
If the leaf does hold on here (big IF), I'm thinking the narrative will turn into "The leaf are TURNING IT ON! CRUNCH PLAYERS! KESSEL4LIFE!!!!!!"
phucktards get BJ'd.
Blue Jackets take it 2-0
I predict 4 straight penalties for the leaf.
That was a slow motion goal...Ugh, cheering for boston makes me feel dirty. Where's a meteror when you need one.
You aren't cheering for the broons, you are cheering against the leaf. Its like voting in an election.
Heh. Like it. A lot.
I am absolutely shocked that a leaf got the penalty for interference on their own goalie - rightfully so.Wow.
You just know that Reimer will be blamed and hung out to dry be leaf nation and their `classy` twitterverse.
Flames leading 3-1 with under 2 left in the 3rd.
4-1 final Habs take back 2nd place.
Credit to Ferraro for showing that disgusting dirty hit by kadri.
Another dirty hit by Nazem "Attempt to Injure" Kadri? I'm shocked.
We all knew the collapse was coming, but it's still sort of sweet.
finish the job you disgusting broons
Bury these fuckers!
I FUCKING HATE THAT FUCKING PIECE OF SHIT RAT MARCHAND SO FUCKING MUCH
Of all freaking people.
TSN is having having a party. Jesus, the Miracle on Ice was more measured.
Oh well, refs did their part.
"They keep the dream alive". Holy shit, what dream? Have to take a quick shower, leaf splooge is burning my skin.
Ah, so what? They're still 1 point out with 2 games in hand. In fact, the BJs are just behind Philthy now. TSNCBC will chalk this up as some amazing clutch win, but it really doesn't make any difference. Even if Columbus goes 3-3, the leaf still needs to go 4-1. Not. Going. To. Happen. In fact, I kind of like the idea of forcing their idiot fans to hold onto hope as long as possible. Make the heart breaking especially terrible.
Sorry, the leaf would have to run the table at 4-0 if the BJs play .500.
In other news, thanks Flames!
Habs will need to win tomorrow to solidify their standing.
Wow, the leaf highlights are already up. I literally have to wait 3-4 hours after the game to get the Hab highlights on TSN.
To be fair, the CLB-PHI highlights are up to, because they directly affect the leaf I guess. Only reason I can think of that the TB-CAL clips aren't up (fuck the rest of Canada's teams, as per usual).
You know, they can try to make that JVR between the legs shot happen, but I for one have never actually seen it work. I've never actually seen it get anywhere near working. Flashy without any substance whatsoever. Kind of like the leaf in general.
Called it! Already there's a video titled "Flipping the script" on TSN.In what was shaping up to be an encore of last year's epic playoff collapse, the Maple Leafs flipped the script this time around. The NHL on TSN panel has more.
"Feels good to get out of the studio. It feels really surreal, doesn't it?""This is a feel good story!""It's amazing!""Tremendously resiliant and gutsy effort by the maple leafs!""It would only the toronto maple leafs who could lost 8 straight in regulation and then win 6 in a row to make the playoffs!"Jesus Christ. Do you think CBCTSN isn't even bothering trying to hide this shit anymore since they're bought out now? The last Habs-leaf game was especially leaf-happy, too. I just think they know their jobs are gone anyway so they might as well be honest finally.
