Habs season spinning out of control? Predators preview and open thread

So the Habs season is starting to go round and round and nowhere fast. Scroll down to HF33's Soprano-riffic recap of last night to find out out why. In the meantime, 'cause I've get to get my ass organized to get to the game (woohoo!, sort of...), here are some quick 'n dirty bullet points about the game:
  • 7 PM start, Phone Booth. RDS and RDS-HD, Montreal English radio CJAD, Montreal French radio CKAC;
  • Check out Pred Joe;
  • Preds coming off a big 6-5 win over Ottawa
  • Habs coming off sucking;
  • Radek Bonk leads the Preds in goal-scoring;
  • That last bullet point was no joke;
  • Huet gets the start;
  • Sens lost again this afternoon, to the Rangers;
  • That last bullet point has nothing to with the Habs game, but I felt like mentioning it;
  • The Predators have never won in Montreal;
  • There is always a first time for everything.

K let's hear your quick 'n dirty game thoughts in the comments.

HF29 is a giddy boy. He has Higgins, Panger's ex-boy, to thank for that.

Anyone around tonight? Mr. LG77's back is in pieces tonight, so I gave our tix away for tonight's game...

Woo hoo Higgins! Woo Hoo POST!!

"Ryder a tout perdu" - Pierre Houde, 7:29 pm, seconds after Ryder fails to insert a ladybug's genitalia in a whale's vagina (Lorne Green speak for misses an empty net).

HabsFan33 said...

Hi LG! we dine en tete a tete tonight.

HabsFan33 said...

We'll take crap goals anytime. These 4 lawyers thank you, Perry Mason. And enjoy the view from the bench.

lawyergirl77 said...

Whale's vagina = their goalie's 5-hole...

Ooh - goalie switch. Dammit - Ellis is a better goalie.

lawyergirl77 said...

Okay, so I bitch and bitch about Carbo's ridiculous line juggling "skillz" but I think I like these lines tonight...

lawyergirl77 said...

By the way, 33 - your post about last night's game was FUCKING BRILLIANT! Well done!!

lawyergirl77 said...

If fucking Breezer and Markov give up one more fucking one on NONE this game, I will lose my mind...

I had let up on my Breezer hate for a few weeks, but it came roaring back with a vengeance over the past few games. He has as many (if not more) glaring fuckups per game as a rookie, only we have NO HOPE of him ever getting better. *sigh*

Bryan said...

what's the fuckin deal with all these breakaways and odd-man rushes??

must have been at least 4 in the first period.

HabsFan33 said...

Guy. You are the man.

lawyergirl77 said...

Looks like we've finally found a use for Breezer: Bleed, bitch, bleed! You're only useful for drawing 4 minute PPs at this point in your career...

Maybe Carbo should put him on blood thinners so that he can bleed even more easily!! Hmmm...

lawyergirl77 said...

FUCK.

Huet, I don't blame you for breaking your stick across the crossbar. Not your fault at all.

FUCK.

Fear The Collapse said...

We are SHIT!! Now would be time to panic Gainey.

Fear The Collapse said...

I am now pissed that I have wasted this much money on tickets for this year. This team is GARBAGE. The playoffs are a pipe dream.

lawyergirl77 said...

I'm speechless. Seriously. What. the. FUCK. was that??????

I'm with PierreetYvon on this one - unacceptable to let ourselves get shot on 19 times in the 3rd in a game where we are up by 3 goals.

So much for Carbo's "defensive" style. We're a small speedy team with some pretty iffy defencemen. Playing the trap is not the way to go... We play better when we open up and, you know, ACTUALLY PLAY THE FUCKING GAME.

Not that you would know that there's a good team buried under all of the shit we've seen lately.

*chunk of the sky hits head* Ow...

lawyergirl77 said...

Doh - ^^ unacceptable to let us get OUTSHOT in the 3rd period.

Bryan said...

trade em all

HabsFan29 said...

well well well. i really don't know what to say except the traditional FUCK.

that 3rd period was an embarassment. damn good thing im drunk on $9.50 beers or I would be suicidal

lawyergirl77 said...

Hey there 29 - how bad was it live?

Soylent said...

As I'm sure you'll all find out, HabsFan29 will probably blame me for the loss.

HabsFan29 said...

LG it was actually a fun game to watch. but the hockey coach in me (and every Habs fan) knows there was a LOT of bad in that one. a rant is building

and soylent, while he may hold some blame, is in no way resposible for letting up 40 shots. Carbo, Muller, Jarvis - they should at least know defense, right??? grrr...

Soylent said...

But I am definitely to blame for a 3 minute to game over jinx. I knew it when it came out of my mouth!

lawyergirl77 said...

Soylent - I gave my tickets to friends who haven't seen the Habs win yet this year... this was their 6th game.

So you only have part of the blame!! ;-)

Soylent said...

@ lawyergirl77...

Well, this was my first live game of the year and my first in years that HansFan29 was more than happy to invite me too. The game was going swimmingly, if luckily (although we both saw that Huet was definitely NOT being protected by his defense).

By the 3rd (and 40 shots in) I uttered the words "we have this one wrapped up", and within 10 seconds they scored. and then they scored again. A sad state of affairs.

Although I'm sure Huet will get the blame for this loss, I would chalk it more up to some weak defense, lucky breaks and overall line confusion with all the changes (although that bad bounce goal was clearly his fault).

I ain't no big master fan, I only see what my eyes show me.

HabsFan33 said...

Ran into some internet troubles tonight. Sorry to have left you all mid-collapse.

LG77: thank you for the nice words re last post.

to all of you: as lg said it before, dust the concrete off your hair because the sky is falling.

Predjoe said...

Thanks for the link! (I'm going to blogroll your site right now)

Nothing I can say can make this better for you today but Huet played (despite giving up four in the third) a solid game. The Preds could not solve him until that bad bounce off the boards that Ortmeyer put in.

Soylent said...

At then end he was 40+ shots in, way too much for any mortal to manage. He was tired.
