You know you're amazing when the team willingly gives up it's record sell out streak in order to keep your seat open in memory. Class. Pure mother fucking class our Habs are.
Great SF, moeman.
Love the Elise Beliveau pic. I am so proud to be a Habs fan.
I heard someone say that Stubbs had asked mme Beliveau at some point if she was tired and maybe go home and get some rest and she said 'no, we are Beliveaus'
Great SF Moeman - Nice ones all round! I too am incredibly proud to be a Habs fan. They might not always win these days, but they have the pedigree of a true champion and everything they do in public exudes class. The benchmark by which all others are measured.I will miss most of the match tonight - Company Christmas party somewhere in the City (financial district of London to you)...might be a bit messy - but the menu looks pretty good...StarterChinese Pearl Barley Risotto with thinly sliced Apple and Fennel Salad MainBlade of Beef Served with Swiss Rosti, Parsnip Puree, Oven Roasted Chantenay Carrots and Green Beans- Wild Mushroom and Cheese Macaroni Served with Sweet Potato Pont Neuf and Homemade Coleslaw DessertScrumptious Sticky Toffee Pudding served with Clotted Cream Ice CreamGo Habs Go!!
mmm bon appetit!
Great as usual SF Moeman! The new Habs take to the ice tonite in a real test. Go gCHuck Go!
29 chimes in with a very interesting report from the battlefield. Is the MAN winning at last?
Thx to my new publicist steve!
29 - so you say downloading from a torrent isn't "criminal", but it is a fineable (finable?) offence? Correct? Just curious - I always thought there was no punishment in canada (guess I need to start reading some internet lawyer blog or something). So what about sites like shush.se that offer free streaming? Think they're in danger of being raided too?And....GO HABS!
@St Paddy this is a hockey site for christ sake. I can not think of anyone except for you who has ever made a non hockey coment:) Especially me and I think I hold some kind of corsi record in pocession. If you want to fight the man really join in a choice. Anybody but Harper! All pols are going to fuck you up the ass. As I undertand it Justin is fighting this by making lubricants no longer tax deductible. A small step but anything anti anal has to be viewed as less smelly.
@Saint PaddyA brief explanation of the law in Canada. There are 2 types of law - criminal and civil. Criminal law is when you do something bad and you have the possibility of going to jail (like steve). Civil law is when you do something bad, but you can't go to jail, but someone can sue you (like steve). "Fines" exist in both types. For downloading, you cannot be sent to jail (in Canada) but could get sued or "fined", although in civil law (like downloading) the fine would be called "statutory damages". Meaning the courts would order you to pay money to the person who sued you, i.e. the movie studio that owned the copyright on the movie you downloaded. The free streaming sites tend to operate in jurisdictions where they would never be shut down (former soviet republics for the most part)
Bon vendredi sexxxxy mes ami(e)s! Killer work moeLet's end this emotional week with a win!
~ ~ ~
Tweaked the thread for game day (scroll down).Xmas partied yesterday (made some Amaretto-flavoured Xmas shortbread cookies).No Xmas party tonight but one tomorrow (annual neighbourhood at my next door neighbour's, which doesn't mean that I haven't found my way home in the past). BYOB. Oh look Hungaria Brut!Tonight its shepherd's pie (I like mine with lots of creamed corn and a touch of cinnamon) and some Blondes. Leftover cookies for dipping in Amaretto-flavoured milk.
Also, too, the gal in the striped dress (in the header pic) is the future Mme. Vodkov. I snuck in and placed the virtual Habs fridge magnet.
Good for Vodkov! Love the guy, but lets face it - he ain't too pretty. Looks more like Mr Bean than Mr Bond. But he's a beauty on the ice and that's what counts.GYMFHG!!!
The beautiful blonde betwixt Bale and the King (pictured with the recently departed Mary Ann Mobley, may she R.I.P.) is Mme. Eller.
mclame, dipshit leaf shill sans pareil; http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/ron-maclean-babcock-watching-leafs-carefully/
Too much! This interview includes gems like "I think you could look at Babcock watching Kessel and Phaneuf, the two lynchpins of the Toronto team..." AND "He’s in a good spot. It’s not about money. It’s about him wanting that challenge of a dynasty (with the) Toronto Maple Leafs." And best of all “I think he’s probably watching Toronto as carefully as anything, not his own team, but Toronto, to decide if he wants to come here.”WTF is wrong with these people. So he's now started watching the wretched leaf rather than his own team? Must be hard to ignore with such a good seat behind the bench of every game. Kessel/Phaneuf=linchpins. Ok...Jayzus!
mclame, like all mediots, is the perfect blend of CotU arrogance and ignorance, Sick fuck.
Sutter says they have a young blue line, we're the opposite of your team.ouch
our blue line goes to shoppers on Wendesdays to get the seniors discount.
@moeman today i was in the SAQ and there was a coupon for a discount on di Saronno. I of course bought a bottle, because I am a Jew and thus cannot resist a discount. I need some di Saronno cocktail recipes. I do enjoy it on the rocks with a twist, or mixed with Coke which is good, or a splash in a cup of tea late at night, but I am sure you've got something good for me
Talk about a di (short form!) CHallenge!- recently discovered that di is great in milk, both white and chocolate- when I make pancakes/crepes, I warm up the maple syrup with a big splash of di- when I make flavoured butter for the aforementioned cakeS!- ¾ Brut, ¼ di- a splish in a mojito- a splash in a negroni- pour di on a significant other (you can buy cheap shower curtains at the dollar store, if you are at an all-you-can eat/drink resort, mess up their sheets and watch how the chambermaids give you a wink)- when I make an Apple pie, substitute some of the sugar with di- ½ cran juice, ¼ di, ¼ SanPel or Perrier, lemon wedge- I love my Bodum coffee press and it loves a bit of di (weekends only)- tiramoesu ; )
- I don't like my di cold unless there's some citrus or tropical juice, replace Southern Comfort + pineapple juice with di, crushed ice- very good with a splash of rum- off topic but whilst at sanguccio's ( http://sanguiccio.ca ) for a belated Bday lunch I had, for the first time, some Vecchio Romagna as a post lunch toast, nicely smooth https://www.thewhiskyexchange.com/P-8439.aspx
- whilst still here, I love keeping Perrier and naturally flavoured versions of lemon or lime on hand to 'water down' a drink or simply to add a bubbly/citrusy splash
29 - take a shot glass and fill it 2 thirds with Jack, then top it witj Di Saronna - that's a "Smokey Mountain Coon Caller" - down in one buddy!
hellooooo, thx! my weekend looks good now!+1 for tiramoesu
oooh Kmaxxx thx you too! that sounds delish!
"I always obviously want to outplay the opposing team's best defenseman. I think (Thursday) I did it for sure, (Friday is) going to be a tough challenge," Doughty said via NHL.com's Sean Farrell. "P.K.'s a good player; I'm going to have to outplay him if we want to win the game."Despite being one of the game's most decorated players at 25, Doughty has only been recognized as a top-three defenseman once in his seven-year career.Great, what a time for PFK to be under the weather.

All profits go to animal rescue; http://marc4change.org
I just looked at the schedule, and it appears that the Habs don't play again until Tuesday after tonight. The fuck?
Extra long weekend at home. Might see some interesting outcome in 9 months, or so.
The pitter-patter of little Habbies.
Let's hope Vodkov's kid looks like the Mrs!
Dinner thread!Homemade pizza and St Ambroise. and di. but not in that order
Shepherds pie and Claire: http://alchimiste.ca/en/#
Couldn't decide, just grab something later.
CHarger plays his 400th tonight.
Andrighetto needs a nick. 'Gruy'?
As in Gruyere.
isn't it just Ghetto?Or NotDDD.Swelvis? (Swedish Elvis...in the ghetto)Explain Gruy...maybe I'll vote for that.Anyway gotta watch the game on delay, so catch up later.
As in Gruyere, cuz he's Swiss.
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!!!!!!
CASH IT PLEASE
Just to comment on that disgusting SN article with McLame, it's pretty sick. The piece of crap who has accomplished nothing in his professional life is implying that Babcock is being unprofessional and isn't doing his job in Detroit. Guess what you fuck, he's got his team at the top of the NHL, much higher than your beloved leaf. Whatever Babcock decides to do next year, there's no doubt he's completely focused on the Wings this year. He's not eyeing anyone else, especially a division rival (if you can call the leaf that). Stop trying to tarnish the reputation of someone much more successful and professional than you. Sick fucks.
PFK!!!!!!!that was quick
That sounds like baby cakes.
deflected by a King i think. I'll take it
no maybe juce is right, it was Cakes
Throw it towards the net and score. Funny how that works. HA HA HA! HA.
Yup cakeS get the PP goal.
PAP high-stick.Kill it.
Beliveau's first ghostly gesture!
Muzzin will never make the Dodgers
That LA pass was Habs-ian. All alone in front, passes it off to no one in particular.
One of the things noted from Tuesday's game was the Habs played no songs/tunes during breaks/goals/etc.
I heard that MMe Beliveau would be at the game tonight.
Be home in time for the second! First game I'll get to watch in weeks! GYFHG!!!
Gaborik should get a penalty ffs, PAP's got it in the face.
No call????? Seriously?????
When yelling at the ref scream Fuck me! and not Fuck you!butFuck you! ref!
How can all 4 officials miss that? The puck was right there! They were having a face off!
Good a PP.
Close call but hey fuck you ref!
Amazing. Thought cakeS was going to get called for being too fast.
Was waiting for a Cloddish embellishment hack call.
New acronym:FYR!Fuck You Ref!
LOLZ, another defensive zone faceoff with a second left and MT has DD out there again. History almost repeats itself as LA gets a quick shot on net. He really is one stubborn son of a bitch, isn't he?
Don't think they could make the line change and DDD also lost the previous O-zone face-off. He is seriously struggling.
That ppg only took 4 seconds. I'd love to see that again.
Looks like Crosby spent too long in the Refs room
Someone said he looked like Quagmire. lol
John Lu @JohnLuTSNMtl · 43 mins 43 minutes agoMrs. Élise Béliveau is now sitting in the seat at the Bell Centre formerly occupied by Jean Béliveau.
The francophone analysts are now saying that DDD's 'reign' has come to an end. Yesterday Flynn even said there would be no market for him.
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 cash it, boys.
Two PPGs? Be still my beating heart!
And DDD was on the PP
Yup and PAP.
If they keep that up the refs will stop calling 'em.
That s/b icing.
PFK! For real this time!
Manny with his first point of the season!
New flu medicine, Not-So-Cold-PFX!
Another PP - cash it
But that's icing? The LA D let it go by them.
Yet another uncalled high stick by LA.
Yet they PAP for holding?
How is that offside? This fucking league...
Oh wait, it's a penalty. Of course.
Shut the OLE up!
This kill was sponsored by TFS!
Great PK !
Fuck you and your brother williams!
Did Williams crash TFS? waiting for the replay.
Hey, Kreider II, fuck off!
So apparently there's talk of a MTL v BOS outdoor game at Fenway next year. If that were to happen, it'd be the 3rd road outdoor game for the Habs. Is there no appropriate host in Montreal? Olympic Stadium? Moslon Stadium? The rink outside the school on Casgrain at Fairmount I used to play on?
The Habs vs. EDM will go down as the best of the outdoor games. Instant classic.
PP's 5 LA, 3 Habs.
A snow removal truck has been parked outside my door since the game began, I think he's parked to watCH it.
Your door or the game? ; )
The game, silly. If he had spirits I'd invite him in.
Next episode of 24CH will be a good one.
Yeah, saw that, PVR is already set for the series.
I still have some episodes from last season, like TFS & PFK making SoCHi.
williams was going straight for TFS and N8 bumped him just enough. Not as dirty as his brother who took Saku's eye out (not penalized as blood poured from his socket).
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!!!!!!
SN is airing a very nice piece on Manny.
33 shots & counting for the Kings...
Vodkov was shaking his head on that one, bounced off him.
Really thought Price was working a SO.
If there's any doubt that the officials call all the close ones against the Habs look at those two plays. Almost identical at both ends. No icing for Kings, icing for Habs. Almost the exact same play.
First goal now awarded to Cakes, PFK gets the assist.
Well, well, well
Seriously, do the Kings have magnets on their sticks?
Look at that, take him off the 1st line and he scores his first 5on5 goal in 53 games. It's almost like he was miscast on the 1st line.
Ah shit, anybody but Doughty, heard he said he wanted to score on TFS.
Methinks wings will be necessary to put this one away...
There ya go!
Nice play by the kids. Ghetto is a point per game player!
It's getting hard to see what will happen when Lego gets back.
Shut the OLE up.
Completely outjocked their #8
Oh my god!!!!
The future's so bright, I gotta wear shades!
That's a fucking ridiculous call on the offside.
Is it just me, or does the Kings' logo up at the score look like an email icon?
Fuck you Doughty.
How does Doughty get a star above Cakes?
How ya like PFK now Doughty? You too Richards.
FLO beats DET in the shootout. Habs 1 point behind them now (with a game in hand, TB 2 pts ahead of Habs).
Habs are now 11-0-0 when they score the first goal.
The Habs came out, started well and they're still critisised for the amount of shots. They played the Stanley Cup champ, give them kudos.
The kids were hot tonight.
