Just to reply to the M in the last thread:I'm half Ukrainian. I was raised on vodka and cabbage. And also a healthy distrust of Russians. GO HABS GO!because despite my blathering I still believe in and love them. Fucking assholes.
Nice theme.The Habs are going to need a Jedi Master to get out of this mess.Use the Force KidG!!!
I too shall repeat what I said in the last thread...There is absolutely no pressure on the Habs tonight - no one is expecting anything from them. So go out, play fucking hockey the way you know how to play hockey and see what happens. Fuck the system, fuck the refs, fuck the league "code", fuck the fucking SFU, fuck TVA and their Fucking Nordique loving fuckers...FUCK 'EM ALL! Just play hockey and JUST FUCKING WIN! What was the name of this fucking blog again...oh yeah - GO YOU FUCKING HABS GO!
From Brian Wilde's article today:"The Habs scored at near 10 percent of their shots during the regular season. They're at 2 percent since game 1 vs Ottawa. Let me put it in simpler terms how dry they have become. They needed 10 to 11 shots to score a goal in the regular season. In the playoffs, they need 50 shots to score a goal. 50 shots. Don't know if I have ever heard of that. You wonder why they can't win. Well, there you go. They are having either the worst case of puck luck ever or the regular season was a mirage."That is fucking insane. Also consider, the PP is now 1/28. Let's pretend that they were clicking at an unimpressive (I realize that's relative) 14%. That would be 4/28, or three more goals these playoffs. Doesn't sound like much, but maybe that came tonight to win it. Maybe that came in game 1 to win it. Maybe that came in game 4 against the Sens to win it. For a team that has only scored 9 goals in their last 7 games, I'm sure those 3 goals would have come in very handy. And remember, that's still below the league average, and their dismal season average.
My question is: How in the fuck did these guys ever win 50 games and get 110 points? eMpTy must have used some kind of magic potion which has obviously worn off. These guys couldn't... never mind.
Reason for optimism (sorry, now I'm getting into stats to take away my anger):Price has not lost an elimination game for over 4 years. What's that you say? Well, he wasn't in net in 2013 when they lost to the Sens in game 5. He wasn't in net last year for game 6 against the Rangers. So, it stands: April 27th, game 7 against the bruins in OT. I looked it up! We got that going for us.
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 say, the Habs played a great 59min 58.9sec of hockey last night.Go Habs. But if you're not gonna go, just put me out of my misery tonight.
Nothing is impossible! Besides, I just talked to both ex-wives....neither of them were singing. It ain't over. GYFHG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That's the spirit! GYMFHG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Somehow, someway, a fan at an NHL playoff game made it through security with, of all things, a gun.Lucas Cassidy, a 27-year-old Tampa Bay Lightning fan, was taken into custody and slapped with a second-degree misdemeanor charge for bringing a firearm into Amalie Arena.The alarming incident happened Wednesday night in Tampa, as the Lightning defeated the Montreal Canadiens 2-1 in Game 3 of an Eastern Conference semifinal series.In a video obtained by 10 News, a Tampa TV station, Cassidy is seen being escorted out of the building from his nosebleed-level seats by security.Police were alerted when a witness came forward claiming Cassidy dropped and then picked up his gun in a washroom.Since the St. Petersburg, Fla., native had a concealed weapons permit, he did not face a felony charge.Lightning spokesperson Bill Wickett told 10 News that the team is investigating how Cassidy gained entry into the venue with a gun in possession.
Go You Fucking Habs Go, win just one more
Ok let's get this over with
In response to my own last comment, I would like to WIN ONE FUCKING GAME AGAINST THESE ASSHOLES. Just to show we can do it!
Chicken Cutlet with sweet chili sauce and perogies. Domincan rum and coke
Burgers and peppers on the BBQ. Sleeman variety pack to work through
Taco bake and one of my fave summer drinks (almost hit 30º today) Pinot Grigio.
Alright, I'm here. Let's get it over with.Good to see HNIC covering TB thoroughly. Wouldn't want to talk about the fucking Canadian team or anything.
Missing the first period. Not like it's the last game of the season or anything. GYFHG!!!
WIN A FUCKING GAME FFSerr, GYFHG
Ouch. Hope we get to hear Ginette sing our anthem at least once more.
Just fucking win!!
I really believe we can win tonite, and just keep on winning, I believe, I believe I want to believe I believeGYFHG
Did you fucking see that beauty beauty Vodkovs not dead yet!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ok, can they please NOT sit back for 57 minutes now and "protect the lead"?
1 shot, 1 goal. GYMFHG!
Bishop whining to the ref.
Vodkov! I know I'm late, was busy eating. Hell of a skate to stick goal!
I'd like to see 5 on BigFlop tonight.GYMFHG!!!!
Burn, burn, burn
And heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere come the refs.
shirley you cant be serious Refs
Andrei Markov, 2 minute minor penalty for having the audacity to score.
Patches and I am on about a two min delay YAHHOOOOOOOOO!!! Were back mother fuckers!!
They now have more shorthanded goals these playoffs than powerplay ones.
2 goals on 5 shots - 1 nice shortie.
SFU crying for a TAM comeback.
They're doing everything but chanting.
MT yelling at Lego. Trying to remain positive.
Every time I'm reminded Healy has no glass in front of him, I can't help but make a little wish he gets an errant puck in the mouth.
I can't understand how Bishop hasn't gotten a diving penalty. I know they don't give them to goalies, but it's getting ridiculous.
But then on the flip side I want him to keep flopping and get burned on it.
I sooooooooo wanna see him get burned on it too, been waiting since game 1.
Nice work by Lego!
Since the offside game winner in game 1, I've noted at least 4 occasions where the Habs have been called offside on clearly on-side plays. Last one was with a couple of minutes left in this period. The puck was a clear foot over the line before Prust. And the linesman had a clear view. Plays like that which disrupt promising rushes make a difference in the end.
Yeah, I mentioned that yesterday. Like the 2on1 last night. Meanwhile, I think that was the first offside called against TB since maybe game 1.
Good period. No CHocula!
Good period - keep it up - don't sit on this lead. Just FUCKING WIN!
Put gCHuck with Lego FFS!!
Oh. My. Fucking. God. Crotch is wearing a Habs tie. I don't know what to do.
WTF, MT was pulling a Watson on Lego.
Maybe it worked. Almost scored a beauty.
scot oak is thick
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!!!!!!!!
Mt looks more like Rodney Dangerfield every day.
oh Bishop you suck. where was this version of you all series
OMG goalie CHange!!!
This is the Bishop we saw in the Wings series.
Yeah, except nobody AHL goalies have a great track record against the Habs.
I was just about to comment how much I was appreciating DDD:) then he scores a big one.
a three goal lead against TFS, start singing people
Is this that Latvian goalie we saw in the olympics? I think so eh.
The FHForce is with them.
With them the FHForce is.
I think that is the 6 or 7th time hes been pulled this season.
Do not sit on this lead. And omg a pp coming.
Cash it Cash it Cash it
Would be a good night for the PP to click in.
Good thing that was pleXXXe and not kidG taking a crosscheck to the face.
who flipped the switch DiCHe!!
OK, save some fucking goals for next game!
KidG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I'm delayed and saw the comments here and thought maybe Gallagher tipped the Dish goal.
Kid G we have scored a half season of goals in one game!
Great to see Tampa squirm a little.
I'd like to take one of these goals and give it to game 1. And then take another one and give it to game 3. Thankyouverymuch.
Habs easily slipped a couple past Vaselineski.
Bullshit call, bullshit goal. The refs got their one for the Bolts.
Hope PatCHes is ok, go a puck in the hand.
I'm more concerned that Patches went to the room after blocking a shot.
Nearly every time an undeserved pp occurs ends in a goal. Should have been a Habs PP instead. Hope Patches is OK
Id like to see CHarger score.(apostrophe isnt working)
Patches back on the bench.
K3X, you got an election update?
Fucking whining diving complaining late hitting fucks.
Jesus, the ref comes in and almost tackles Weise. Of course he's the only one to get called.
It's amazing that in a game where one team has dominated in every way, the other one is the team that keeps getting PPs. Very strange.
Brayden "3rd Sedin" Coburn - 6'5" 220 lbs.Ben Bishflop - 6'7" 210 lbs.Literally the 2 biggest floppers I've ever seen.
Starting to think they are coached to be like that. bishflop and cockburn didn't dive and turtle on their previous teams. Modus seems to be to goad the opponent, fake out the ref with embellishment.
During the 1st TVA said to Auger, Stephane, Bishop is a known diver, why havent we seen him get a penalty? Well, because goalies are given the benefit of the doubtI can understand if he did it once, but he does it numerous times every game, fuck the benefit of the doubt bullshit.
Wendy Mesley stills cranks my turn. Met her once 20 years ago on Sparks Street.
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!!!!!!!!
Cmon, boys, bring it back homeGYMFHG!!!!
Oh yeah, Kill it
Maybe I shouldnt have said anything, crap
crap crapHANG ON BOYS
See pic below the Star Wars header.
WOW, WTF? I just came home and tuned in...what universe did I land in? Earth 2?
Please sit down, I have some shocking news to tell you. Are you sitting. Ok, here it goes....The Montreal Canadiens scored a PP goal tonight. Seriously, I hope you were sitting down.
Another one for the refs.
How many times are they going to blow loose pucks dead in front of the Tampa net?
1 quick Ottawa whistle = 15 Montreal quickies.
SFU want Tampa goals.
They've got all their fingers crossed. And i suspect Hugeson and Simpleton have their swords crossed too.
Nice catCH! Sip!
First time I ever hear someone (huge son) call it a 6-2 Tampa deficit. SFU.
I am very happy for CHarger.
So according to HNIC, if Bishop was in net TB would be winning? Didn't they try that already?
You gotta be kidding? How fucking stupid are they?
Well juce it's Healy saying it, so...
Well, they didn't really say that outright, they just said it would be a different game if they left him in.
Dont tell me DSP will get a penalty because his stick broke?
FIRE UP THE PP
I wanna see a PK Rocket on this PP for the touchdown.
Boyle should have a penalty for that.
He was just 'relieving frustration' according to huge son.
Restricting ticket sales to Florida residents was bad enough, but banning Habs jerseys in some arena sections is one of the most pathetic things I've ever heard.
HNIC shows the PP for both teams in this "series". Except they use the number for the whole playoffs for Montreal, making it look like they've gotten way more PPs this series. Oh, CBC.
Well, I think it was game 4 vs Ottawa when their visual showed the Habs were 1 for 36. And they rolled right along like that was the right number.
Huge Son is excited. "Tampa Bay is really starting to skate now!!!"
CASH IT!!Shocked they call it since it was kidG who was tripped.
I can't believe he drew a penalty.
The refs have accepted that TB isn't going to come back, so it's time to even up the PPs so the box score looks good. That call isn't made if it's 1-0.
2nd time commenting... can the guy who brought the gun in shoot Healy?
Hmm, Alberta turns orange and Omar Khadr is finally released. Coincidence?
Don't question the Orange. The Orange knows what's best. Let the Orange do its thing.
No sir. No questions.
How many fucking times is HNIC going to show the game winning goals by TB?
SFU can't STFU about Tampa.
Anyone know if the SFU mouthed this much about how the Ducks would do in their next game?
I thought we didn't play at the Forum any more?
Simpleton is a simpleton.
They are very worried about Stamkos once again. I'm sure they'll have a prayer circle or circle jerk or something to bring him good vibes.
well that was fun
Woo!!! Saturday night in Montreal. FINALLY!
Still time for fuckface bettman to make it an afternoon game.
They deserved better fates a couple games and tonight they finally got it.
That was nice. Defied by expectations. Keep it up, boys!And unlike TB's 6-2 win, MTL didn't have their goals handed to them by the refs.
Hey the M, I'm hitting the links for the first time tomorrow afternoon. Courses open up your way yet?
