"Ladies and gentlemen, on stage for your dancing pleasure, the Florida Panthers - Game Preview and Open Thread

Waiting in line details - 7:30 PM at the Phone Booth, the usual media outlets. Habs have won 2 in a row! Including a home game! Panthers have won 2 out of 3 on their current road trip. This is the Habs last homer before heading out for the annual season-killer Chirstmas road trip. The only team in the NHL with a winning record against the Habs historically? The Florida Panthers. Seriously, it's true. Look it up. And that includes 5-1-1 in their last seven games against us.

Pay your cover charge to - Panthers Daily Puck. I think I have mentioned before they are the only Panthers blog, so here's another link for you guys!

Hot sexy Habs to watch - TFS(tm) gets his 7th straight start after he shoulda / coulda had a shutout against the Leafs (one last "Greg Millen, you fucker"), even though Huet is ready to go (goalie controversy alert!). The Koivu-Higgins-Little Tits line (nickname, smart FHF commentors, let's go) has 7 points in the last 2 games, including Sak's first goals in an eternity.

Hot sexy Panthers to watch - the Habs former goalie of the future Tomas Vokoun has a .923 save % and 2.54 GAA. Olli Jokinen is their only real offensive threat, with 17-16-33 on the year.

Skanky Habs to watch - we've won 2 in a row! We're great! Nothing's wrong!

Skanky Panthers to watch - Jozef Stumpel is plodding along with only 14 points and is -14.

Healing in the hot tub - Tenderness is a game time decision. Breezer still out (whew). Smols and Bégin still long-term-ish. UPDATE - Carbo said at the morning skate Tenderness won't play, and apparently he's pissed.

Post-game adult entertainment establishment - in a previous post, I mentioned that Super Contact was the better version of it's more famous big brother, Super Sexe. I must now update that information after visiting SS last night for the 6th annual ex-RSS male lawyers Holiday Bonanza. SS is now a contact dance club, at $15, just like Super Contact. The hot dancers of yore are gone, leaving the skanks, just like Super Contact. But SS still has the free daytime hot buffet, so go for lunch!

Let's hear the Line 4B nickname suggestions and dirty game thoughts in the comments.

timmmmyyyyyyyyyy likes short plaid skirts on strippers

Line 4B = Captain America likes Little Tits

I iek short plaid skitrs, too, but a smaller size.

One nit-pick on the preview: I don't think Vokoun was ever the Habs goalie of the future - since he came up with Theo, just like Halak can't be considered the Habs goalie of the future with TFS(TM) around.

If Vokoun was, then why the FUCK did we trade him to keep Seb Bordeleau???

Oh yeah, Houle. Reggie, you bastard.

HabsFan29 said...

"goalie of the future" may be pushing it, but he was very highly regarded

Seb Bordeleau. hahahahaha

bob said...

4b could be the GOGO line ...
kOivu
kOsty..(what ever)
hiGGins

and then they could have "les danseuses a GOGO" everytime they score ...

bob said...

That must be a pick from a southern Ontario stripper...
She looks just as entertaining as a Habs-Panthers game ... not much scoring going on ...

hmm... koivu is 5'10", li'l tits is 5'11", and higgins is 6'0". there might be something there.

"the under-six-foot line"?
"the you-are-not-tall-enough-to-go-on-this-ride line"?
"the little three"?
"the smurf line"? (or possibly something small but more menacing than smurfs... preferably something that wears red)

too close to toronto said...

"santa's elves"?

HabsFan29 said...

boy you people are picky when it comes to the strippers

sure, she's got a little meat around the middle and looks bored, but she's still hot!

however:

+1 for that

HabsFan29 said...

@2C2T - we're getting there, at least you're thinking.

However, the Habs already had a smurf line in the past - Koivu, Valeri Bure and Oleg Petrov

too close to toronto said...

oh yeah... those guys. i liked those guys. petrov was fast. i thought it sounded familiar.

well, there's always their initials: KKH

alright kids im off to get drunk before I go to the game!!!

check in later...

Matt (FTC) said...

Panthers deserved that goal. They have jump and are all over MTL early. Only chance MTL had this period is that first shot of the period by Pleks. MTL is doing a nice job again of missing passes and mishandling the puck.

Matt (FTC) said...

Wow, great puck handling skills by Price. Oh wait, he passed it to a Panther.

Bryan said...

"Jozef Stumpel is plodding along with only 14 points and is -14."

and yet he scores the first goal.. this is going to be a long night

fezworth said...

First goal in 23 games. Whee. I can't wait to read Guy Lafleur's column tomorrow.

Habsfan10 said...

Jesus, some days I'm glad I don't have RDS.

Someone have an explanation as to why the FUCKING FLORIDA PANTHERS own the Habs? Drives me crazy.

Habsfan10 said...

Somebody warn HF29 that I'm revoking his tickets if they keep losing when he's in attendance. I'm starting to sense a pattern.

fezworth said...

10.. vitamin D, maybe? Maybe the Habs all have S.A.D.

lawyergirl77 said...

HF10 - I showed up to tonight's game too. I think i may self-revoke my season's tickets...

... especially seeing as Mr. LG77 and I left with 10 minutes left in the 3rd period in order to beat the traffic!! *gasp* But we could tell from the way that the Habs were playing (and the fucking Carbo system that they were running) that it was NOT going to be a good night.

Riddle me this - when the zone that we're playiing means that we pass from deep inside our blue line to a player in-between their blue line and the red line and our passes keep getting picked off by the opposing team, doesn't that mean that Carbo should, I dunno, MAKE SOME FUCKING ADJUSTMENTS IN-BETWEEN PERIODS.

That being said, if we're going to be lazy in our execution of the "system" then we're doomed to failure. Unfortunately, our lazy tendencies are only exacerbated when we play in such a lazy defensive system.

Whoa my rant was less than half a page tonight. I must be mellowing in my old age... (not a word from you, Panger!)

i just walked in. drank heavily after the game.

(...) speechless. crap. we played 4 minutes of decent hockey
