  4. Happy SF all! Hey, Luna x 3! <---One more for the series win.

    Running out to pick up some stripperloings for the Q. Maybe baked taters or sweet potatoes.

    My nerves are fucked. I've decided it's good having work hectic to keep my mind off the game til this time of day.

    I s'pose Chiarelli will try to pry a few broons away like Pretzel and Ratface. Whatever. I'd still like to see Eberle in the CH.

    Trouba played 2 games with a broken hand for the Jets. I wonder if he is tired out from all the wincing like our favourite microdick.

    I'm liking Friday playoff games. Hell of a way to end a week.

    All I hope is they don't lay back waiting for an Ottawa turnover. They have to be the ones who come out hard and put the Turds on their heels and keep it that way. You hear me MT??? DON'T HOLD BACK!!!! GET AFTER THEM!!!

    5. My 86 year old dad just recently inhabited a care home. I inherited his liquor cabinet. Apparently the last several years he kept receiving gifts of scotCH, but never drank any. Hence the several ( about 15 ) bottles of scotCH i can CHoose from.

    7. I'm sorry for your dad, but that's pretty cool. CHeers to your dad!

      My dad was a scotch drinker but he died before I became one. Frankly it's not a bad thing, because he only drank blended crap like St Leger and Black and White, so we would have argued about it. He loved blended only, and cheap ones. The kids once bought him a Johnny Walker Blue (like for his 65th bday or something) because it was a blend at least. He was like "meh, waste of money". My dad was a CHaracter sip

  70. orangeman (what wrote from 2 posts ago):

    yes. excellent observations in that they have gone 4, 2, 1, 0, but the next in the chain cannot be -1 (despite MT's best efforts)

    1. the habs deal in absolutes thus no imaginary #'s (i's dont count)
    2. having said that, what uve observed orangeman is either a symmetrical pattern or a repeating sequence.
    ergo... the next will be either a 1 or 4.
    (considering the turds just scored... it HABS to be 4 now -am i right?)

    ReplyDelete
  71. I'm sick of every face off taking 5 minutes. DROP THE FUCKING PUCK.

    O-man, yeah, Habs averaging 9 PP's/game according to mediots. And no mention from them that maybe that's not quite right...
    Habs started well (i missed the first 3 mind you), but need fucking traffic in front of Anderson.

    Lego's going again - i think he's got one or more in him tonight.

  82. DDD can't win a face off. It's just simple, he cannot win a face off. Every offensive zone face off is useless because of course DDD will be out there, and he will lose it. Every game this series.

  97. The thing I hate most about this inevitable collapse is the narrative will be that the Sens are so amazing, that they're the Cinderella come back from the dead team, when in reality it was the Habs who just stopped playing. We've seen it several times this year where suddenly Montreal will just not play hockey for a 2 week stretch, like the whole team is thinking about other stuff or something. Because honestly, Anderson hasn't had to make a tough save since G3 and Price should have had the last 3 goals (yeah yeah, screen, whatever).

  103. I am by no means counting the boys out of this series, let alone this game. But I was just thinking, 2 years ago, Eller gets knocked out by that dirty fuck Gryba. Habs go on to lose in 5. Last year, that dirty little prick Kreider takes out Price and the Habs lose in 6. This year, that greasy little fucking Swede takes out N8 with a 'legal headshot' and IF the Habs were to lose this series it will be in 7.

    But I think they're coming out on fire, or at least smoking or a small spark perhaps...my confidence is waning so i best stop.

  134. TFS on his knees early for all three goals. I know he makes a lot of saves from the butterfly, but he didn't move on any of them - doesn't seem to have his usual fight to find the puck. Of course it's pointless when the 18 guys in front of you couldn't put a puck in the ocean.
