Refs are morons.
Go Habs Go!
Moore is having an in-person hearing. I doubt Krashing Kreider will get anything, the NY NHL won't suspend 2 players on NYR.

A pic of moi! I look and feel like Grumpy Cat today even though it's my birthday. I must have a man cold. GYFHG!!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY! You don't look a day over 3 cat years (the internet tells me that's 29 humanoid years).
Bonne Fête Kate!
Today is your birthday go and have a good time
Happy birthday Moey! Sorry to hear you are not well. Hot chicken soup and some Jack Daniels should help...who am I kidding...it sure won't hurt! Go Habs go!!
Happy Birthday Moey!!! Get better soon!
Happy Birthday, Moey, celebrate when you feel better.
Happy birthday from Down East!
Lucky the M. didn't type 'Happy birthday from Down South!'
@MaritimerTrading Lego from the last thread.His name should be changed to popeye, he is was it is. A good hockey player with size. But easily replaced.
4 million dollar legs ... 40 cent brain. No Finnish all Danish.
Bday greeting pic (updated), just for you Moey.Luv ya.
just so I am clear..is Moey the 2nd, 5th or 6th picture?
All of em.
Excellent! Knew she was hot!
So if one goes by tsn's main page the Habs aren't playing (another Canadian team) tonight. Sick fucks.
Let's get the dinner thread goin'!French Onion Soup for me. I have never cried so much while making dinner. Thank god for waterproof mascara. Let's see if RBQ can wake up his game in front of family & friends. *prays*GYFHG!!!
Rinse your onions under cold water or cry.Piri-piri pork, garlic noodles, butter tarts (gifted by a neighbour).
Steak, kernel corn, mashed potatoes and homemade pumpkin pie.
Boneless, skinless chicken baked in an Italian bread crumb Parmesan cheese mixture, KD, steamed broccoli and sliced tomato.I'm blacked out again tonight and 11:00pm starts eliminate me anyways.Memo to Lego: Hit the fucking net with your shot!!!!!!!!
Tks moe, I am definitely going to try that!
Pork tenderloins. Dry rub piri-piri spice. 2 days in the fridge. Seared, then oven at 350 for 12 mins. Garlic noodles are too easy. Pick a pasta, al dente it. Heat some good EVOO, throw in as much fresh crushed garlic as you like. Swirl in the noodles, add pepper, parmesan and/or hot pepper flakes if you like it hot (easy Moey!).http://www.clubhouse.ca/en/products/detail.aspx?piri_piri&id=a68072d8-72b8-4d5f-8e05-3b809435d5c0http://www.clubhouse.ca/en/products/detail.aspx?piri_piri&id=a68072d8-72b8-4d5f-8e05-3b809435d5c0
Stock is a fucking joke. Says GMs should bring video of kidG to the league and say we want to protect our best players, we have to stop someone who has the most goaltender interference in the league. Habs complained about kreider but remember gallagher next time and if someone hurts my goalie and I'm a player on that team, well the next time I am going to hurt their goalie.
KidG gets enough penalties already (too many) so the league and the refs and the pinheads have already singled him out. So, if I am DGMB or MT2 or KidG, test them and take it to the extreme and crash hard into say King Henry or whatever plug the Sens play. For fun. pjstuck is a wannabe kypreos minus the extended forehead.
Thank you all for the lovely birthday wishes and thanks to you moe for the pic! Just awesome!
The best deserves the best. Be well bud.
First season is on Netflix US (use Chrome or Ffox and the HOLA extension).Second season: http://www.globaltv.com/theblacklist/video/index.html#theblacklist/videoI logged in with my Videotron cred, Worked.
Our new favorite show! Almost finished the first season. Season 2 is also on demand on Bell Fibe
Love all of Spader's work. He, Bale and Downey Jr. are at the very top of my list.
So you like Iron Man, Batman obviously and the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron will feature Spader doing the voiceover for Ultron (evil A.I.) created by RDJ's Tony Stark. Yeah!
All but Avengers. I love all those actors quirkier work but they are some of he purest actors today.
Gordie Howe suffered a stroke on the weekend. Get well.
Happy birthday Moey. GO HABS GO! I should be able to watch most of the game. The kids are putting on some sort of dance and singing festival that I'm supposed to help with, but I can usually hide away from those sorts of things. There's only so much K-pop I can handle.
Thanks O man! Hope the Habs give me a win tonight!
Habs stats after 9 games:PP opportunities: 26 (tied for 26th)PP/G: 2.88 (29th)PP time: 41:38 (25th)Times SH: 36 (29th)SH/G: 4 (26th)PK time: 57:15 (27th)PP-PK time: -15:37 (29th)Strange for a small, speedy time that relies on skill. But you know, the Habs get all the calls...
*small speedy TEAM. Great, now I'm spelling like Koreans.
Hope you don't mind if I borrow that.
Gryba does it again to Anisimov.
Starts with the fat walrus.
So the jilted fucks at the acc are booing Josh Gorges. Man, was his decision to tell them to fuck off great or what. Stupidest zombie fans in pro hockey. Eat shit leafools.
Josh was a good (if a little under talented Hab) and we will always be grateful for his efforts. His telling the leaf to fuck off was pure bonus material. I hope he gets the winning goal tonight.
According to leafsportsnetwork, leafs are dominating.
Josh was heart and soul.
Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go!!!!
Gotta sell it, TFS. The only way you'll get a PP.
Penalties are 5-1 for the leaf.
Wait, how is that a penalty but what just happened to DDD and what happened to gCHuck earlier wasn't. They were the exact same plays. Except the Flame was bearhugging DDD for 5 seconds before he took him down.
Aaaaaaaaand here come the refs again...
In the net Lego, not behind it.
I'm having a hard time remembering the last time Lego hit the net with a shot.
I really fucking despise channel searching for 10 minutes just to find the friggin' game. Just sayin'.
Think I posted this morning that Rogers tried to invent a new kind of TV bingo game where the grand prize is finding the game.
haahahaha! rick mercer just did the exact same thing on his show. instead of bingo, he did battleship.it was quite amusing
How can he not hit the net?
Replay shows Hiller got a piece of it.
In what dimension is that not holding against Prust?
Oh right, Calgary gets the PP. Of course.
4-3 Wild over Broons.
Not sure if it would have been a surefire goal as SN says seeing as Price completely stopped playing because the whistle went.Speaking of which, SN is terrible. I have no idea what those penalties were for. No replay, no explanation. Instead just Hrudy going on about not winning in Boston.
You'll likely hear the sucking the leafs victory soon.
WTF is the D doing? Wake UP!
Everybody incl flames playint hot potato there.
Lego and RBQ need to sit. For a while.
MoeMan shoots above the net. MT shoul make them practice shootin INTO the net.
4th line is the only one who can produce any offence.
7-3 Tampa over Coyotes
RDS loving Gaudreau.
TFS had enough of that, kept the puck with no one around.
All that pressure and ZERO shots on net.
Penalty coming up, TFS goes to the bench for the extra man.
Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go!!!!Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go!!!!
TFS back in nets.
Too much passing.
Gilbert! (Do we have a name for him?)
I don't remember if we do.
Shut the OLE up.
Wow, I guess that last PatCHes is ruled off-side, waiting for the replay after TV time out. I didn't hear a whistle but from the reactions I think it was called before he shot the puck.
Said they had to watch the replay a couple times, very close.
Roughing for Lego
Hrudy is incensed that it's not a penalty against Patches. Nevermind the 3 Flames who attacked him after. No, letting the puck slide into the net after the whistle is intolerable. And the Habs get a penalty anyway. Quel surpris.
We're all aware that the Flames are a nothing team, right? Same with the Oilers? It's not like they're in California. Not looking good.
Hold on O man it's a long season, too early for the Prophet of Doom.
Oh I know. But they're also being hemmed in for almost the entire period.
Sportsnet just showed the leaf highlights and ended "Big win at home, WAY TO GO BOYS!" Uh-huh. Also, everyone shuts out the sabers. They're the worst team in recent NHL memory.
My cats could beat the Sabres, but why ruin it fir the leafools and their ilk.
Our boys can do this, GYFHG!
pass pass pass pass pass giveaway.
Flames allowed to crash Price all night...
Yep, free for all with the ref just looking on.
Yet again a Flame tackles Price.
Because they can.
I've actually had no problem with any of the calls against the Habs. But if we're using that standard, I'm really confused about what is being let go the other way.
Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go!!!!Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go!!!!Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go!!!!
Stajan down after Tinordi hit, maybe knee on knee? Wating for the replay after TV timeout.
Looks completely accidental. If anything, Stajan was the one that moved into that position. Which means a 5 major for Tiny, I'm sure.
Didn't really stick his knee out, so not intentional.
Doesn't matter, still a penalty of course! Never mind the 3 Flames that attacked him afterwards. Roughing is not a thing, apparently.
Agree it's a penalty.
TFS is tacking a beating tonight, literally
It is actually unbelievable. I've never seen such sustained running of a goalie before, especially with no calls.
Haha, Hrudy calling for more penalties against the Habs. Get over it dude, 1993 was a long time ago.
For the guy who said earlier it should have been a penalty for Patches putting the puck into the net after the whistle because he's a former goalie, he seems not to mind the continuous running of Price.
Bad time to take a penalty.
A guy parked in front of TFS and no one does anything, I miss Murray.
Are you Ffucking kidding me? (Y)!
All will can do now is kill it.Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go!!!!
How th fuck is glencross allowed to stay in the crease behind TFS?
We're getting into tinfoil hat territory, but there was about a 1 minute sequence where the officials got in the way of the puck three times. Each time it greatly helped the Flames.
I am actually shocked they called that offside.
So was I.TFS saved this one.
Well, they get at least a point. Refs getting an angry call from HQ.
Penalties are 7-3.
SUPRISE! Kypreos (sp? ah, who cares) is saying Tiny did the knee on purpose and deserves a suspension. Like I said, SHOCKER! If that was PK that got hit he'd be screaming dive.
Showing the replays, TFS knocked in the head a few times and no calls.
Can't wait to see what'll happen next! Will it be a tripping call? A slashing? Interference? What will the Habs go to the box for next?! The suspense is killing me!
Why is RBQ on the ice now?
Shoot-outGo Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go!!!!
OH MY GOD HIT THE NET!
Gaudreau no goal!
Fuck you refs, you pieces of human excrement.
Funny, the SN guys were utterly convinced that the Flames shot would have gone in anyway. You know they one slowly, barely, rolling wide with Price's stick right there? Yeah. Anyway, WOOHOO! 8-2!
Thank God the refs didn't deem it a good goal, although TFS had to tell them immediately that it was not legal.
TFS got the 2 pts tonight.
That's his first win in Calgary - and well deserved!
You can tell leafs don't win often, it's the main story even though other games that finished later won.
I wonder if the guys at SN think that Flame dude should get a penalty for shooting the puck in the net after the play was dead?
Night juce! Nice watching with you!
Just to summarize for any FHFers catching up in the morning:Habs spent 6 of the last 7.5 minutes of the game shorthanded. -Kneeing against Tiny. Totally accidental. Stajan really milked it, too. He was out the next shift. -Cross checking against PAP. Actual legit call (shocking, I know) although the Calgary guy was on his knees asking for it.-Hooking on Y(?). Also legit, but the Flame guy pretty much did Kyle Shewfelt's 2004 gold medal floor routine down the ice to sell it. But they pulled it off. All of this will pad their stats.
Sorry, just one more stat.All of last season MTL won only 9 games when the other team scored first. They've already won 6 so far this year. But I don't really want them to keep pushing their luck.
So I read through all the comments aboard the 7:11 to London Bridge this morning - Thanks Juce and Moeman and O-man (and any others) who stayed up and watched. Habs move on to Vancouver with an 8-2 record - Whoo Hoo!Now I have to watch to game later on to fully comment but the theme running through the comments were mainly about the Flames running TFS and the refs not paying any attention. 7-3 on the penalty front - which is bad - at this point I don't know if it's justified...I hate being the one crying that "the refs treat us bad", as I do feel that overall it evens out - mostly! Of far greater concern here - 19 shots! TOTAL! the Flames had 16 in the 2nd period alone! 19 Shots people - that is pretty piss poor. Gilbert notched his first goal because he put the puck on the net. If you shoot it at the net, you never know what is going to happen. Passing the puck endlessly in the offensive zone without taking a shot really is both fucking annoying and absolutely pointless. Wasn't it Wayne Gretzky who said "You miss 100% of the shots you never take" ? Now that may or may not make grammatical sense but the idea is right. The Habs might be 8-2 right now - but if they keep on taking only 20 shots a night they won't be for very much longer!!Go Habs Go!!!
I probably complained about the refs more than completely necessary. I would say most (though not all) of the Habs penalties were justified if they were calling a tight game. The problem is it was carte blanche on the other end. I will complain about the refs here during a game, but I know it's just game talk. But it's adding up over the last few games (and not just penalties). I've listed the stats earlier. I mean, someone's gotta be on bottom but it's just strange for a "small speedy" team. Anyway, it's painful to watch. Not their best game, but they got the job done. If you're a fan of TFS being TFS then it will be entertaining.
I want to dominate, not in a Jian Gomesh way, but on the ice. This team seems to be slipping back into a Chocula like coma. If this is not a cup contender its not to early to tank. Dive Capetian Dive.Barrfalo only manged 10 shots on net against the hapless leaf. We are going to have to dive hard and fast to get there.Call me old fashion. I think sex should be an Olympic sport. However combing sex and boxing is just wrong.
Since I didn't see the game, I'm just going by O-man's and juce's comment... sounds like the officiating was less than stellar. I don't rally care about that. The bottom line is the Habs won. That's all that really matters. What's been irritating me is all and I mean ALL the fucking morons working for Snet and by extension the CBC plus TSN all whining that the Habs aren't as good as their record indicates, their defence isn't that good, they only win in shootouts, blah, blah, blah. Well fuck all you jealous, petty leafools.Two quotes form the world of the NFL:1. Bill Parcells, Super Bowl winning coach : "You are what your record says you are."2. Al Davis, owner of the Oakland Raiders : "Just win, baby."So. to reiterate: The Montreal Canadiens are 8-2 which says they are a pretty good team. They just keep winning, baby.Fuck you mediots and leafools.
Nicely done.Also, too, they won it for Moey!
Yes, that too. Hope she is feeling better today. I am, after that rant!
Math is the argument people use when all they have is facts.
Great rant The M!
Apparently, PAP told TFS, 'don't worry I got this' and TFS started to leave the crease before he even took the shot.
This is really why Kypreos was slamming Tinordi for yesterday's game.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h9OkNoEtka8
good one! or two or three to the head
I had forgotten about that obvious connection from the past. Now it all makes sense...

Right effin on.Go Habs
Moore only gets 5 games.
Did we win?I was out last night. Thanks to juce and o'man et al for the commentary. The shots ratio scares me. OySo let me get this straight. Schedule makers send the Habs out on a West coast trip after 2 weeks of the season, with one day of rest. Then they make them play 3 games in 4 nights on said west coast trip. Do I have that right?Fuck the NHL.
Oh and this was after 4 in 6 nights on the road to open the season, including a trip to Florida for no reason to play only ONE of the Florida teamsFuck the NHL
The Calgary Flames will be without the services of forward Matt Stajan for approximately six weeks, the club announced Wednesday.Stajan has been placed on injured reserve after a knee-on-knee collision with Jarred Tinordi of the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday.Center Markus Granlund was recalled from AHL Abbotsford to compensate for the loss of Stajan.Tinordi will not be disciplined by the league as a result of this incident.
So some MPs are saying they PTSD after the shooting in Ottawa. No to sound cruel, but may NOW they will understand, many even remotely, what our military and vets suffer and show them a little more humanity & respect via Veteren Affairs.i/o stone-walling and beauracracy which they now display.
Wow many typos, but you get my point.
The only way to get a politician to care about your troubles is for him to have your troubles. But seriously, PTSD? Does everyone get to have that now? I understand those coming home from a warzone, but come on. I don't want to sound mean and I know everyone reacts differently, but when I was about 9 I was in a store with my mom and three armed robbers came in shooting the place up (after years of peaceful existence in big city Montreal, this happened in our first year in suburban Ontario). We actually saw one of the guys get shot. It really didn't have an impact on either of us. Of course it upset us for a week or two, but longterm I kind of just forgot about it. I only remember it when other shootings are brought up. But these days I suppose it'd be all PTSD and wah wah wah I'm a victim too crap. Besides, I'm no psychologist, but isn't it way too early to tell anyway. It's not even a week. Wouldn't it be normal to still be upset by the events? I doubt this will make any of them more sympathetic to our military who actually have to deal with real psychological horrors anyway. If you're the type of person already screaming victim less than 4 days after a real victim is buried, you're probably not the type of person to understand the real victimization of others. And that's my rant on the subject.
Harper and the Banana Cons give Canada PTSD!
Rick Mercer makes a funny about watching hockey in 2014http://www.cbc.ca/player/Shows/Shows/The+Rick+Mercer+Report/ID/2576856181/
Good one and so true.
Oh god that was great. Punjabi, heh
Rick's rant WAS great...but if you to go nhl.com the header which shows each game tells you which channel the game is on. Speaking of that I just clicked on the nhl.com preview for the Habs-Canucks game and it says "Montreal has given up the first goal in eight of its 10 games, and is 0-for-21 on the power play on the road, according to the Montreal Gazette." Shouldn't the NHL have these statistics themselves, rather than relying on a newspaper article? I found it an odd thing to state from the website of the league that theoretically tracks all statistics related to said league.GO HABS. FUCK OFF REFS.
All I got to say is that one way or another I am protected.
I am also doing a kick starter to correlate the hardness of ones shot with risk. Not to pre judge the results, but the Mexicant should go to emerg immediately.

What a hack, obviously he doesn't like kidG.http://www.thescore.com/nhl/news/617396
this team is a prime example of the sum being bigger than the parts. Or maybe to score when the pot is on the kettle in the nhl is pure pinball!
LEGO is a healthy scratch tonight.Get ready Steve, your avatar is soon going to be irrelevant. eMpTy has had enough.
What's with the robot thing?It's annoying.Go Habs
Yes. It is.Go Habs
Sounds like Carnaval plays tonight.
