Toker starts tonight.GYMFHG!
I couldn't get tickets to the game, however I will be going out to watch it with some diehard Jests fans. I'll try not to start a riot as I will be wearing my Richard jersey. Nice article in the local paper...http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/sports/hockey/nhl/price-has-it-right-297619401.html?cx_navSource=d-tiles-3
Just going to repost from last thread...I did a little math and came up with the following:Habs can clinCH a playoff spot on Thursday night if either one of these scenarios takes place:-Habs win, Boston loses.-Habs lose in OT/SO and Boston loses in regulation.If they both lose in regulation the best Boston can do is tie Montreal, but there's still the possibility that the broons finish ahead on ROW (the real tie breaker, despite what TSN likes to make up to keep the Habs down). Basically, I think it works like this:Broons are #9 now. They are at 84 pts with 9 games left. So, they can get max 102 pts. MTL is at 100. So the magic number is '3', meaning that's how many points, combined, that the Habs need to earn and Boston needs to lose (not 2 because Boston could still technically win on that tie breaker). So, a Habs win (2) + a Boston loss (either -1 or -2) would be enough, or a Habs OT loss (1) + a Boston reg loss (-2). Montreal could be the first team to clinCH, unless the following happens;TB wins (or loses in OT/SO), MTL loses in reg AND Boston loses in reg. In which case, the Bolts would clinCH before Les Boys. And obviously both MTL and TB could both clinCH if they win/lose in OT and Boston loses in reg. I like numbers....
Also...So I was perusing google images tonight looking at various X-Men ST:TNG fan fiction mash ups, as you do, and I came across Patrick Stewart wearing this. That's right, Captain Picard/Prof Xavier supporting our HABS!!!http://img1.nymag.com/imgs/daily/intelligencer/2013/05/29/29-patrick-stewart-pizza.w1200.h630.jpg

We've definitely had that Patrick pic on the blog at some pointCHester sip that was awesomemeanwhile, CommanderCaptain Sisko is clearly the best of all of 'em
Here's a pretty good article on tonight's back-up goalie!! http://www.winnipegfreepress.com/sports/hockey/nhl/price-has-it-right-297619401.html
Now there's a paid women's hockey league (NWHL), gotta wonder how the refs will call those games. What kind of name is "Buffalo Beauts"? The cap is expected to be $270,000.
It'll be his 1000th, who did he make it that far?
*how* not who
Go Habs Go!
Sweet 16 woooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!Wait, what?I Jest.
Habs could clinCH a playoff spot tonight! Sip!
Slumming it tonight, making homemade poutine and drinking PBR cans. And by "homemade poutine" I mean frozen FF and poutine sauce from a can. Delish!
Left over pot roast.
Hanging with my nephew after his improv theatre session. We stopped for some hot dogs and fries at Casse Croute Lorrain. Sliced, grilled, toasted bun. All-dressed has cole slaw.
Also, Belgium beers on sale at Provogo. $7.99 for a sixer if you buy 4 cases.So, Hoe, Stella, Leffe Blonde et Brune.
Bagel N' Lox. Listening again.
Notre Dame in tight 25-22 over the WSU SHOCKERS. Best nickname in college BB
Speaking of food, here's some quality new burger porn http://www.thesuperficial.com/sara-sampaio-carls-jr-thickburger-el-diablo-03-2015
Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go! Go Habs Go!!!!!!!!!!!
broons got 2 just about consecutive pp's and ref turned a blind eye on when they should have been called.
Seems my fingers refuse to type what my brain is telling it to lately.
Go. Habs go!
I want to see hockey tonight not a fucking pinball game.
Shane Nidy (sp) praising the TEAM, saying just because TFS isn't in nets doesn't mean an easy 2 pts. That sounds so foreign to my ears.
2-0 Preds over Bolts. Broons and Ducks still tied 0-0.
I want to see the Jets in the playoffs, so I wouldn't be totally disappointed if Habs take it in OT.
I echo this sentiment. 1-0 or 2-1 in a SO will be fine. Or 7-6, so the Habs can prove they can actually score
GYFHG!!!Go Toker Go!!!!!
DSiP demoted to the 4th line. About fucking time
CHip playing in front of friends and family, last time he was there with Torts he hardly gave him a shift.
Now RDS is having technical difficulties. Not a good sign
Plaid takes no shit!
Let's hope there's no more technical difficulties on RDS
nice cross-check in the backCASH IT
OH MY GOD. The point shot isn't working! Without a screen it's not going to work! It's been 74 games! Stubborn is as stubborn does.
Well, gCHyuk hit the crossbar.
Toker should have had that.
Stay in your crease Toker.
CASH IT CASH IT
Wheeler told the ref he dove.
Getting good CHances, but just not going in.
How do those guys get penalties? Do the refs even know what they're doing anymore?
This is a really long period.
Pavelec is really keeping them in it.
Rags leading 5-1
WHAT? The Rocket and Howe's name will be removed from the Sacred CHalice?
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!!!!!!!!!!!
timfuckingpeel wanted to call PFK for delay of game the other guy said no, it deflected.
btw if you need me, I am over here watching basketball
WTF were DDD and DiSH! doing? crap!!
Shots 24-8 Habs and Jets score 2.
KidG's been bullied by Bfyulen (sp) all night.
Jesus Price....So we can all agree Toker isn't an NHL goalie, at least yet, right?
This must be how other teams feel when they play against Price and the Habs.
Man, PatCHes almost had a shortie and almost got one there.
That was fucking dirty.
Wow, dirty dirty hit. Thought Ladd was better than that.
broons, Ducks going to OT
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!!!!!!!!!!!
Toker really has no idea where the puck is tonight, (Y) just had to tell him it was under him.
Toker, you should have stayed home.
Good thing they only had 13 shots.
Ducks 3-2 over broons in OT
The Hamburgler got pulled.
Hope Sens fans kept their parachutes because they're going to come crashing down to earth soon.
5-1 Rags final.
Preds 3-2 over Bolts.
Panthers 4-1 over leaf
BunCH of flukey goals.
Rags first to clinch.
Knee on knee on KidG
Tech difficulties again...
OH MY GOD
Their fans are taunting them with the OLE. I hear the fans are very good at that.
They are don cherry classless. Hope they miss the playoffs.
I find the player to be dirty also.
Now Toker wakes up
Toker's going to lose whatever that trophy is for the team that gives up the least goals all by himself. Seriously, I hate to rag on the guy but I really miss Buddha.
Too bad, we could have clinCHed. The SFU will say it's because they can't win without TFS, but the team played well and deserved a better fate. Pavelec kept the Jets in it.
This was pretty much the reverse of what we usually see, with one team dominating and their goalie stealing the game for them. Of course I don't remember the last time the Habs got a seive as an oppsoing goalie. Maybe LA's back up in December at the Bell Center when they won 6-2?
Oh well, they're in the playoffs and have home ice (barring unbelievable disaster). I'd rather face the Wings in the first round anyway rather than a Boston/Ottawa team that's been playing playoff hockey for a month, or Ovie and the refs.
You win some you lose some and all that crap, but what's really troubling about this team is the PP. Not just that it's terrible, but the fact that nothing has changed on it all year while it's been terrible. It gives a clue to the level of stubborness on this team (exhibit B: DDD on the 1st line).
Of course Gagnon says the team is not the same without TFS. I agree there were a couple mistakes with the D, but those early goals...Toker had no clue where the puck was.
