Hello, Larry - Sens Game Preview and Open Thread (Classy Edition)

Yes, I know I promised a return to the strippers when the Habs gave the effort. And they gave it in spades Saturday night. But this night will be too classy for me to sully it up with your tawdry desires.

Some quick and possibly classy bullet points about the game:
  • In case you hadn't noticed, it's Larry Robinson Day around here (scroll down to read all the great memories from the FHF) as the Habs will retire his number 19 prior to the puck dropping. We guarantee it will be classy. Well, except for the presence of Lou Lamoriello;
  • Greek Lightning has been suspended one game for instigating so he's out, with Grabs taking his spot. Someone want to tell me how Chara got off without any punishment?
  • Sens are gonna be pissed after losing 3-0 to the Laffs Saturday night. Uh-oh;
  • But saying that, if Habs win in regulation they would be only 3 points out of first in the Northeast! (whoa, I may be hallucinating);
  • The Christo-Wall will get the start;
  • Hello, Larry was a short-lived sitcom of the early 80's starring MacLean Stevenson;
  • Michael Ryder had 13 shots against the Bruins. 13! He still didn't score;
  • Chris Higgins will play despite the ankle injury from Saturday;
  • Habs Inside/Out now requires you to be registered to post comments without moderation. Welcome to all of you who want to comment but are too lazy to go through that crap. Normally we have strippers, snark, and swearing, but we're taking the fucking high road tonight in honour of Larry.
Let's hear your classy pre-game and game thoughts in the comments.

Senators Lost Cojones said...

We're sorry we have to ruin your night Larry. Seriously. We are. You understand, right?

HabsFan29 said...

Larry will have his revenge SLC!

Well I'm not sure about the Bad, Bad Leroy Brown selection, but that was quality video

HabsFan29 said...

btw Anonymous I like your 'tude and thx

you're on crack about the Cup business, but I'll be you a beer when we sneak by the Rangers in the 1st round. man my expectations are in the crapper

HabsFan29 said...

* BUY you a beer. Yeesh. You should see me make typos when im drunk

HabsFan29 said...

apologies on behalf of MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR company Google if y'all are getting server errors like I am

Lou L wasn't too bad...

HabsFan29 said...

"I'm not gonna be a Mark Messier" - hahahah. Great line Larry!

HabsFan29 said...

I'm not crying, it's just the dust in my apartment

Senators Lost Cojones said...

I would like to extend my congratulations to Big Bird. A well deserved honour, a long time in coming.

I would also like to meet, and subsequently pummel to within an inch of his life, the complete fuckstick at Sportsnet Ontario who decided that rather than see the ceremony, we'd much prefer a rerun of Sportsnet Connected and ten minutes on some upcoming Comedic Football League game. A pox on all your houses, dipshits!!

Um...evening all.

Senators Lost Cojones said...

This site if the fa shizzle my nizzle fan fucking tastic!

I would also like to add that I have absolutely no idea what this means.

Now get the hell off my lawn.

HabsFan29 said...

SLC don't worry I am sure Sportsnet Ontario will have full coverage of the jersey retirement of the next great Leaf. whoever that is.

RDS full one-hour, commercial-free of the ceremony and interviews, including an all-French one with Big Bird himself. Excellent coverage all around. RDS (except for a commentator or two) rules

hey, there's a game to play!

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Looks like they picked up where they left off after the last one. Wow.

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Sweeeeeet.

HabsFan29 said...

Grrrrr...

how mny fucking offensive players do you have SLC? you can't leave anyone open

too bad I think Habs are playing well. Jeebus! how many chances can we have???

HabsFan29 said...

HF33 text from the Phone Booth: "Shit this is good."

Must not be able to the scoreboard or something

HabsFan29 said...

WOW what a burst of speed from Grabs. that's about all I got right now..

Senators Lost Cojones said...

So which one of you guys is conspiring with google to crash my firefox?? ;)

As I was trying to post after Neil (NEIL!)'s goal...

how mny fucking offensive players do you have SLC?

More than you think...

HabsFan29 said...

A google-delayed +1 SLC. Neil?!?! I'm fucking DYING here

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Holy crap, what a period! And I'm not saying that just because...well, you know.

Habsfan10 said...

You know, I made all sorts of noise about not hating the Sens earlier this year ... but if this shit keeps up, all that goes out the window.

Senators Lost Cojones said...

HF10: The Beige approves. All we need now is a playoff series...or four.

Habsfan10 said...

SLC, you think you have Sportsnet problems ... once again, Sportsnet East is blacked out here in Leaf-land, so a great game and the retirement ceremony is not on my agenda. And when the hell did CJAD start requiring plug-ins to listen to the fucking game? I am stunned that in this day and age I CAN'T SEE OR HEAR ANY OF THIS FUCKING GAME. UN-FUCKING BELIEVABLE. I'm seriously going to murder someone.

Habsfan10 said...

A playoff series would be welcome, but not first round, because that would make us 8th.

HabsFan29 said...

jeez HF10 i didnt realize how bad you have it. id be on a murdering SPREE if i was you

Senators Lost Cojones said...

HF10: Man that BITES! I'd write a strongly worded letter to Larry Tannenbaum if I were you...and if I thought he'd give a shit. Can't expose the Nation to good hockey. They might want some for themselves.

Aaaaand...our PP still sucks phalluses (phallisi?) of the moose persuasion.

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Crap. Now I know Heater's cold. He couldn't beat Breezeby.

HabsFan29 said...

SLC when Larry was shaking all the Habs' hands he hugged Breezer. Something may have rubbed off. But yes, Heater's struggling. Not Ryder-struggling, but close

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Damn...

HabsFan29 said...

YES!

That was not... pretty. But damn we needed it

HabsFan29 said...

Happy now SLC? FUCK FUCK FUCK

Senators Lost Cojones said...

HEATER!! Getting warmer...

Senators Lost Cojones said...

HF29: Um...yes?

HabsFan29 said...

Trying to confuse you SLC. I gotta come up with anything now.

alright, 3rd period, still plenty of time, let's go boys, yada-yada...

HabFanatic said...

Someone please wake me up when this game is done....

What is with the Habs??? I mean how much motivation do they need? Robinson's big night, Sens in town...you'd think they would be up for this game.

HabsFan29 said...

habfanatic i thought we had plenty of motivation until the Sens second goal. total deflater. it was a solid 8 minutes there.

HabsFan29 said...

game. over.

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Allow me to introduce Mr. Kelly...

Can't just stand around in the slot boys.

HabsFan29 said...

SLC all night with the standing around in their own zone, watching, watching

ray of hope!

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Whoops...that was hubris kicking me in the ass.

Senators Lost Cojones said...

A word of caution, if I may. In about 4 minutes, your D will start pinching at the points. I'd strongly advise against it.

Just sayin', Coach Carbs...

HabsFan29 said...

my god Kovy you kill me sometimes

totally wasted PP. grrrr

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Gotta go gents. Beloved needs the room for sleep, so I'm moving to the interweb-less living room to watch the rest.

Catch you tomorrow!

HabsFan29 said...

SIGH

alright latecomers let's hear the complaints

DDOHabFan said...

This officiating is killing me... but then again, so is PP. Nice hit on Alfie.

Habsfan10 said...

Ugh. Again with the Sens, and two against the Sabres still to come this week ... I see the Habs getting sucked into the fucking mudfight that is 6th to 10th in this conference. Again. When do we play some garbage team from the South or West? Seriously, how unbalanced is the schedule? The Sabres three times in ten days?

Bryan said...

this was almost as bad as the last buffalo game on friday.

Jeremy said...

The result sucks, we lost, but a big thank you for the sens players, for spending all that time on the bench during pre-game, and retirement. Very classy.
