Just Drop the Motherfucking Puck Already - Game 1 Open Thread

Nothing left to say. If you want a preview, scroll down for posts from the last two days. A couple of quick notes, and it goes without saying they are in bullet point form:
  • DOOM is in, Rhino, Franky B and Saku are out. Breezer would appear to be in, despite repeated FHF attempts to put a hit on him. For the B's, Savard will be a game-time decision;
  • The fine folks over at St Louis Game Time, their pathetic excuse for a team on the golf course, have adopted the Habs for the playoffs because the FHF are just so fun and friendly. Be sure to taunt them if they stop by;
  • Where's my meth?

Let's do this thing. Go hockey. Pants.

@les_G: why is she your ex then????

OK let's do this thing, DROP THE F'ING PUCK ALREADY.

So what do you think the odds are of me getting beaten up in Calgary for wearing a Habs jersey like the dude wearing the Oilers jersey last week?

fezworth said...

GO PANTS GO! I mean Habs. Fuck, I think I found the meth. But it's ok, because the snow is melted off the roads, I can go home, and It's playoff time, baby!

fezworth said...

@panger: Go to the Rose & Crown, there'll be lots of 'em around there to protect you.

I sadly, won't be able to attend until game 4. I'm out to Kananaskis this weekend, and because of the bloody weather, got to work 3 hours late tonight. But CBC's broadcasting the game, so I'll be here, for sure.

Habsfan10 said...

Odds are much lower, Panger.

Habs fans are loved and respected worldwide for their good looks, sense of humour, class and grace. (Well, except in Toronto. Jealous little fuckers. Oh, and New York, as we all found out. Fuckin psychos. And in pockets of the North where they don't know the Nordiques have left. Inbreds.)

Patrick Lagacé's blog:

"Sachez que le puck est en voie de disparition, que certaines personnes n'aiment pas le voir être frappé ainsi, sur la glace, par des hommes armés de bâtons. C'est une longue histoire dont nous reparlerons."

HabsFan29 said...

@Mtliste - Patrick needs to lighten up

Panger if our blog is any indication, half of Calagary is Habs fans! you'll be alright

Montréaliste1 said...

@29: loves it !

What are the odds of getting ur ass wicked in Boston wearing a Habs jersey ? Cuz I'm going to see game 3 in Boston. Sick.

HabsFan29 said...

Mtliste take a bullet proof vest or something. the B's fans are psycho when they are here in Montreal. Im scared as to what they may do in Beantown

Montréaliste1 said...

I'm going with my football buddys, we should be okay.

But a bullet proof vest could be useful. Second fucking amendment.

lol.

Habsfan10 said...

Mtliste, if they are anything like Red Sox fans when the Yankees are in town, it will be ugly. Although judging from recent Habs/Bruins games at the TDBanknorth, at least 1/3 of the crowd will be Habs fans anyway.

B's fan for Life said...

Unfortunately the Bruins are the red headed step child of Boston teams. Unless you just piss off a drunk Red Sox Fan, you'll be fine wearing your Habs jersey in Boston. You'll see how much the city cares about then when you realize that 50% of the people there are Habs fans.
Probably because the rest of Boston is too busy watching the Sox play an insignificant early season bore of a baseball game.

I look forward to a day where Habs fans will fear going to Boston.

man mn hockey is as close to Canadian hockey as i can get, can i be a Canadian too?

Ps, can we have mikko's brother?

HabsFan29 said...

anonymous, MN is in Canada. didn't you know?

Matt D said...

@ anonymous.

No, you can't have him. He's ours. You can give us Mikko instead, since we let you have Jacques Lemaire.

Loser Domi said...

I know I should know this, but where did "pants." come from?

b's fan for life is right--probably most of Boston is watching the sox, but since you're going in a group, you'll be ok

HabsFan29 said...

@LD - good old Jeff in Hong Kong closed a brilliant / psychotic rant with it

fezworth said...

Anyone else forced to watch on CBC/other online venues?

Loser Domi said...

thanks for clearing that up. GO PANTS GO!

How awesome would that be to see on a sign at a game?

panger76 said...

@fezworth: I'm giving the Rose a chance, but I don't know if I can handle Bob Cole all night. I may have to go back to RDS.

HabsFan29 said...

@fezworth - RDS all the way. die Bob Cole die!

I am happy to report HF10 is in my apartment watching the game! it's a (half) FHF gathering

Anonymous said...

Drop that muddafukkin puck already!!!!


Go Habs! Go Hockey! Pants!


did i use "pants" properly?

fezworth said...

@panger, @HF29: I would watch RDS, but I'm bug-fixing at work right now, so monitor 2 is the CBC online feed.

fezworth said...

What's with all the towel-waving? Since when did Les Partisans need fucking TOWELS to help them cheer?

HabsFan29 said...

YEAH BABY!!!!!

Anonymous said...

1-0!!!!!!!!!!!

BRING'EM ON!!!

fezworth said...

WOOOOOOOO!!!!

Moose said...

holy crap, goal 34 seconds in!

Sonia said...

And so it begins!
Go Habs!
Go Hockey!
Go Pants!
GO LIL' TITS!!!

fezworth said...

I hope that, before the series is over, I shall see a single tear drop from the quivering chin of Tim Thomas. I hope the Habs make his soul bleed.

fezworth said...

YES!

fezworth said...

The Tits are beating the Broons!

msevigny said...

TITS AHOY!

Sonia said...

....Aaaaand GO BIG TITS!!!

HabsFan29 said...

my god i cant keep up!!

fezworth said...

That must be a record... Fastest two goals in a playoff game ever scored by two brothers.

moeman said...

Olé, déjà. OuCH!

fezworth said...

LOL... Ok, I know you guys hate the early Olé...

But I LOVE it. I have NEVER seen a Habs team I could have such confidence in. I'm singing Olé at my desk.. people are looking at me funny.

fezworth said...

BWAHAHA!!! I tell coach Carbi, big ugly Cari have big hole bitween legs. Now maybe Jaro make hockey.

Baroque said...

SEE!!!!

Premature ole-ing!

The hockey gods are angered by premature celebrations.

HabsFan29 said...

@fezworth - Jaro leke. hehe

Sonia said...

Wow. Steve Bangin'

HabsFan29 said...

my god. my heart. thank god the first period is over. im not going to be able to take these playoffs

msevigny said...

Good first period. Obviously it would have been nice to score on that first power play--3-0 five minutes in probably would have triggered a total meltdown by the Bruins. Instead they got one back (not Price's fault, really, on a tip-in from that range) and regained their composure. So Montreal's going to have to work for this one--but I'm actually more comfortable with that than if they were up 4-0 and eased up on the Bruins. When they're playing hard, Boston clearly can't keep up for them longer than a shift (or power play) or so.

fezworth said...

Agreed, msevingy.

You know, I REALLY like Kelly Hrudey on CBC, over the Don. He's actually really interesting, pointing out TFS' puck-handling skills.

Matt D said...

I'd prefer Maggie the Monkey throwing her own shit Ron to Don Cherry.

Loser Domi said...

Fire in the disco! fire in the taco bell!

Sorry, I have to spread teh joy that is Electric Six

HabsFan29 said...

Slooooooowinski!!!

fezworth said...

reboouuunnnnnnnnndd SCORES!

msevigny said...

Apparently the fans at the arena aren't interested in winning this hockey game. Pick another chant, I beg you. Chant "CHA-RA SU-UCKS *clap* *clap* *clapclapclap*, that's a good one. Not the karmic wrecking ball that is the early-game Ole chant.

Bethany said...

I feel like I'm missing something. Why are you booing Chara? I'm not trying to be rude, just curious :)

HabsFan29 said...

@bethany - i dont know either

hey, not bad! 3-1 up after 2. i can live with that

Bethany said...

@29 ok...just checking! Go Habs Go!!

Sonia said...

@bethany: because Jor Thornton's not around to boo anymore...

Sonia said...

Uh, "Joe"...

HabsFan29 said...

hf10 is drunk and telling stories, and the meth is really kicking in. but we're liking what we're seeing

fezworth said...

Love those boards! :-D :-D

HabsFan29 said...

kosto! fun now...

HabsFan29 said...

HF4 live from the Phone Booth - 21273 erections here. Yes, even the women are erect.

HabsFan29 said...

(via text msg)

fezworth said...

You guys should figure out how to post via txt message... Or get a twitter feed going...

fezworth said...

Wow... CBC just posted a graphic... Boston hasn't had a lead against MTL this season. Not for one minute. (I'm touching wood, don't worry)

Bethany said...

I agree Fez! They should totally get a Twitter!! Are you on twitter?!

fezworth said...

I am indeed, same handle. I haven't posted much yet, though.

HabsFan29 said...

i'll work on Twitter guys (im on it in real life)

alright quality game one win. workmanlike. (not over, but 4-1...)

Bethany said...

Fez, you are added on mine! I feel special, being the first person to follow you lol.
29, you should add me too...BethanyM85

Bethany said...

The game was great!! Bruins played really well, well better than I expected.

moeman said...

Vodkov with the 1st star, nice. Ham'r played a huge game to bag star #2 and KTops nets a #3. A very well played game by the entire team. Keep resting Saku.

msevigny said...

Well, the chanting was really annoying, but the team looked good, they didn't miss Koivu, Komi's back at full force, and Andrei and Sergei are the best pair of tits in the NHL since Vladmir Krutov retired. Good job. Now they just have to do it fifteen more times.

HabsFan29 said...

alright the crowds have cleared out of casa del 29, HF10 was a sight to see. i can barely see for the alcohol and meth

BUT i have a chance to sit back and digest. all year i complained about our inability to play 60 minutes. they pretty much did it tonight. it's only the Bruins, and it's only game 1, but i'm still pleased.

for now

lawyergirl77 said...

Awesome game, but is anyone else a bit concerned that we didn't score one fuckin' power play goal?? Even during a TWO MINUTE 5 on 3??

Granted, at even strength we were a sight to behold, but I sincerely hope that we can fix the PP... Especially when the idiot Broons start acting like the Big Dumb Tree (does that make them Stumps?) and take idiot frustration penalties. Which I certainly don't mind... heh.

And someone needs to send Jeff this t-shirt: http://www.glarkware.com/productcart/pc/viewPrd.asp?idcategory=3&idproduct=1896

HabsFan29 said...

@LG - GREAT t-shirt!!

that 5 on 3 concerned me too. big time.

Bryan said...

fucking 72 comment.s i hate you all. rose was goos. fez get the fuck out to the pub. bout 10 ppl but it will get bettter when you are there ;) haha

chuck said...

They weren't trying to score on the 5 on 3. It was more an excercise of taking 2 minutes off the clock late in the game.

msevigny said...

I'd like to bring attention to tsn.ca's headline ("KOST CERTAINTY"), which is the best thing anyone at tsn.ca has written in ages. Now that you know this, you no longer actually need to visit tsn.ca (it ended up crashing my browser after I tried to click on something).

HabsFan29 said...

Chuck you're right - there was a reason Slowinski was on the ice during it

fezworth said...

bryan, it's going to have to wait till game 4, I'm going up to Kananaskis with my better half for the weekend.
