"Enough with the tease, Mr. Hab. Would you like to come into the VIP room or not?" - Devils Game Preview and Open Thread

So with Ottawa's win this afternoon, the Habs are back in 2nd in the division. That's the bad news. The good news is that means the Burgh lost, so by the end of the night we could be alone at the top of the Eastern Conference. Hahaha. Like that's gonna happen. Because yours truly will be there, and there's no way the deity I don't believe in will allow me to be that happy.

Consider that your game preview. If you want to read something, scroll down for HF33's worldly brilliance. And be sure to check in with the Ookies over at IPB for all the best Devils talk and general fun chat about food and life. I have to go, I have to start drinking now. OK, I'm lying. I started three hours ago.

I'm starting to wonder if Canadian lawyers actually get paid in alcohol instead of money. It would save the trouble of cashing it in for booze. :)

GOOOOOO BUILDING COLLAPSE!

That is all.

So... Is it just me, or did the Super Smash Bros. Brawl theme song play for like 3 seconds on RDS?

Somebody pay Markov a lap-dance. And Koivu, and Mark Streit!!!

This game is driving me insane. I can't stand watching the Devils play, I want to throttle them all, and especially their coach and their evil general manager. Their play makes my soul hurt.

Baroque said...

Then your soul should be happy because the Devils lost.

Congratulations to the FIRST PLACE Montreal Canadiens!!!

They did what they needed to do--they minimized their mistakes on even-strength (the source of Jersey's offense) and took advantage of their power plays to overwhelm Brodeur (it didn't seem like it sometimes given how bad the PP was sometimes, but they were 2/7).

Given that Jersey is practically built to smother a team like Montreal, a 2-1 win is just fine with me. Let's just hope they avoid NJ in the playoffs.

Sorry SLC, the Sens collapse appears complete. Until MTL collapses and the Sens take over again...

HabsFan29 said...

Holy shit, did that really just happen? Are we actually in first place??

*mind is blown*

Best locker room comment tonight - Koivu, getting a bit choked up, saying that it was the first time he's ever been in first place.

By the way, 29 - I apologize for a slight on your person that I committed without your knowledge. I texted Panger to get him to call you and tell you to leave the Bell Centre in between the second and third periods, unless you were with your Mom! Clearly - the curse is broken!!! ;-)

The Habs played a Devils game and beat them at it. A perfect weekend. Now I'm starting to believe, because tonight was just a well played game despite the fatigue that started to show in the third. Bravo les Boys. I'm a fan.

@LG - didn't watch the post-game interviews, but just hearing that about Koivu brings the single tear to my eye... awwww! I hope he wins the cup! President's Trophy! Playoff MVP! Retire #11!

I'm ranting. I'm just beside myself at the moment.

I became a Habs fan at the start of the Rejean Houle era, so it's a first for me!
