Mr. Price, you're wanted in the VIP Room again - Phlyers Game Preview and Open Thread

With all the talk about the Big Tits goal last night (scroll down), we also must acknowledge and celebrate TFS' career shutout #1. Yours truly was there, and I can tell you he earned that baby. Just sick work when the Habs were two men down. Here's to many more! No pressure, kid. For your reward, you get to play again tonight. Besides Carey starting, here's the bare minimum you need to know about the back-end of the home and home:

  • 7 PM start, Wachovia Center;
  • Habs now two points out of first in the East. Crank up the hype machine again. Of course, the Devils (remember them?) are also only two points out of first, and Pittsburgh ain't far off either;
  • Flyers are now losers of six straight, and five straight to Montreal overall, which includes three in Philly;
  • Mike Boone reports some lineup changes - Slowinski and Greek Lightning are in the press box, Bégin and Ryder(!!) take those spots. C'mon Mikey, raise your trade value!

Does a Sunday night Habs game feel weird to you? Discuss.

HabsFan29 said...

yoyu guys even know there is a game tonight? man it's strange watching Habs on a Sunday

decent road start

YES!

HabsFan29 said...

Fuck we were dominating. what a waste of a great start

lawyergirl77 said...

Hey there 29.

I'm watching the game from my hotel room in Gatineau. Woo hoo. (Stupid week-long trial starts tomorrow in this lovely city).

Blech on that shorthanded goal. Man our PP sucks lately.

lawyergirl77 said...

Koivu, man, FUCK!!! You can hit the goalie just fine, but not a wide open net.

*smack* Snap outta it!

HabsFan29 said...

hey LG! ah beautiful Gatineau

3 wasted PP's already.

Koivu cant hit anything. last night he had a wide open net from 3 feet and completely whiffed. a definite smack is needed

lawyergirl77 said...

I know - I remember that shot. The 110% disciples behind me wouldn't let anyone forget it, either - they kept bringing it up as proof of how much he sucks.

PPs were not only wasted, but they led to a SH goal. Boo.

Oh, and I forgot how ugly ShitoMax teevee truly is. :-( I miss home already...

lawyergirl77 said...

Holy shit! That was a fast and furious fight for the few seconds they allowed it to go.

Totally legal check, IMHO. Vigorous, yes, but legal.

HabsFan29 said...

POW! totally clean.

bullshit call

HabsFan29 said...

woof. that was a fun period

lawyergirl77 said...

WOOO HOOO!!

Go Frankie B!

(Question for all you law types out there: do you think it would be a good idea in cross to ask the opposing party how she lives with the fact that she is a LIAR LIAR PANTS ON FIRE? No? Too subtle? Okay...)

lawyergirl77 said...

What a weird goal. Stupid bouncing puck.

HabsFan29 said...

LG I like that trial strategy. i would use it. of course, im no longer a litigator...

k boys another good spirited period would make me happy

and FUCK. what the hell was that?? jeez nice bounce

HabsFan29 said...

MIKEY!!!

i might cry.

HabsFan29 said...

and SAKU!

now i really am gonna cry

lawyergirl77 said...

My GOD! Koivu got the puck to cross the goal line!

Perhaps I should watch more games in ShitoMax. He scored last year when I was watching them on regular tv...

HabsFan33 said...

LG and 29, may I cut in? Don't mean to disrupt the tete a tete.

lawyergirl77 said...

aaand... Koivu penalty.

Holy shit - he has 77 minutes of penalties this year??? Damn...

lawyergirl77 said...

Hey there 33! :-) You're always welcome to cut in!

HabsFan33 said...

These Flyers sans Gagne are just not the same.

Sunday Night Trivia:

a) True
b) totally false, HF33 you're an asshole
c)I don't know but HF33 you're an asshole

lawyergirl77 said...

I enjoyed Demers' smackdown of Brière during the intermission. He basically pointed out that it's kind of clear now that Brière was full of shit when he said he picked the "better" team...

I realize that's not earthshattering news, but it still warms the cockles of my heart (maybe in the sub-cockle area too...)

lawyergirl77 said...

If that's true, 33, then you've got to spill the dirt....

HabsFan29 said...

i vote a) for some reason. it's possiblr

HabsFan33 said...

29, care to venture a guess?

HabsFan33 said...

Stay tuned for the answer in the third period *ahem...cheap ploy to keep our readers logged on...*

HabsFan29 said...

whew. i can breathe again. jeez, how many penalties??

lawyergirl77 said...

Alright, gentlemen, I'm off to keep preparing. I just keep procrastinating while I'm connected to the Internet...

Go Habs Go for the third!! (Please don't choke, please don't choke!!)

HabsFan29 said...

oh we'll choke LG. not to worry.

i wish you a decent judge!

Flying Toaster said...

So is it just me, or are we suddenly the best penalty-kill in the league?

HabsFan29 said...

yeah FT i donkt know where that came from, but i'll take it

Flying Toaster said...

Well look at this game and the last one, Flyers couldn't get a single powerplay goal despite the insane amount of penalties we got. And IF i'm not mistaken, we were pretty good these last 4-5 games on the PK. I mean sure, statistically we're still not the best, but i'm talking about how we've been doing lately.

HabsFan33 said...

FT, I agree. Our goalies never have to mak crazy saves on the PK, meaning the four guys in front of them must be doing something right.

HabsFan33 said...

Mum just told me off for the typo in my last comment. SO to make mommy proud of me, "MAK-E crazy saves".

HabsFan33 said...

Yes folks, I'm hosting mom and dad tonight. Dad and I are downing strawberry cream tequila shots, no joke, you can't make this kind of shit up.

HabsFan33 said...

Cheers to all FHF readers from HF33-Mom AND HF33-Dad.

HabsFan29 said...

strawberry cream tequila, mmmm

HabsFan33 said...

You guys forgot that in your top 10: http://youtube.com/watch?v=NNIdtnUQ3qI

Montréaliste1 said...

By the way, Hamrlik makes a real big difference.

Bob Gainey's a fucking genious. He can wipe his ass with the contract Sourray refused to sign. Oh, and fuck Mike Ribs.
