  1. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  9. 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.

  43. 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.

    ReplyDelete

    1. 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.

  90. 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 doubt

    I can understand if he did it once, but he does it numerous times every game, fuck the benefit of the doubt bullshit.
