Habs need to turn it around NOW - Sens preview and open thread

Yeah, it seems odd to me too that we need to talk about "turning things around" when the Habs are 8-2-2. But fuck, how much do I need to complain about the sucking? We can all agree that the Leafs game was an embarassment. But that BJ's game sucked too. Meanwhile, the Sens are all hotsy-totsy lately after stumbling out of the gate. Time to make a statement boys.

Waiting in line details - 7 PM start at The Phone Booth. You hear that - SEVEN P.M., not the normal 7:30 for a weeknight. That reduces my time to get drunk after work by half. I can still do it! The game is on TSN so HF10 can watch. While the Sens are coming off a 2-1 loss to the Canes, before that they had dominated the Flyers and had a 4-0-1 streak. After actually sitting in last place for a while, Sens have climbed to 10th in the East. As for the Habs, well, you know my feelings already.

Pay your cover charge to - if this is your first day on FHF, we'll direct you to Five for Smiting. If you've been here before, you're probably sick of us talking about how great a blogger SLC is, so we'll just shut the fuck up for once.

Hot sexy Habs to watch - Pleks and Kovy starting to come alive, and Tangy and Markov still going strong.

Skanky Habs to watch - I'm hoping to see Mad Max get a point again in my lifetime. I've given up on Gui! though. If I put TFS(tm) in this space (10 goals against in his last two starts), will the gods smite me? [ducks thunder bolt]

Hot sexy Sens to watch - Alex Auld leads the league in GAA. Let me write that again - ALEX FRAKKING AULD LEADS THE LEAGUE IN GAA. Fish, Heater and Alfie all coming around. And Filip Kuba is still leading NHL defensemen in points, albeit tied with 3 others including Markov.

Skanky Sens to watch - Spezza with only a single point in his last 5 games, though he still has 13 for the season.

Line-up du jour - Price will start. Hamr is ready to go. No word yet on the fourth line, but we're sure it won't include a certain winger of Greek descent who we shall not name for fear of sparking another debate in the comments.

Totally random note that has nothing to do with the game but I'm writing it anyway - As I write this preview, some guy is outside my window wearing a Colorado Avalanche jacket. I always found it fascinating how Nords fans embraced the Avs. Normally, when a team leaves a city, its subsequent incarnation is met with either indifference or derision (see: Washington Nationals), but Nords fans seem to love the Avs.

Early week post-game entertainment in lieu of a strip club - How about reading a book? May I suggest Men with Balls, by KSK'er Big Daddy Drew? I haven't read it yet, but if it's 1/10th as funny as his Thursday Afternoon Dick Joke Jamboroos, it will be awesome.

Let's hear your dick jokes in the comments

Awwww...and I didn't get you guys anything.

LET'S DO THIS THING!

panger76 said...

Nords fans only like Colorado becase of Roy and the Cup.

lostinlealand said...

Will Gang Bang Lange show up at some point this season? I thought he was the better signing this summer as opposed to Tangy but he's been very quiet as of late. Pick it GBL or sit on the bench in Hamilton.

Yvan Cournoyer said...

Reality Check:

On the basis of winning %age Habs are first in the East and second overall in the league behind the Sharks.

HabsFan29 said...

@LOLL (think you're missing an "f" today) - agreed. would have had him in the skanks, but he did score against the Leafs. Now Gui! is dragging him down

@Yvan - if there is one thing I'm disconnected from, it's reality. point well taken.

HabsFan29 said...

@HF29 - "LILL", not LOLL you fuck. make fun of someone's typo and you fuck it up too. nice

hockeyzombie said...

Laroque was rather quiet during the leafs game. I thought he would be out there sending a message after three goalie interference calls.

If the habs start getting pushed around tonight I hope they respond!

gillis said...

larawue was wuiet cause he was busy serving everyone elses penalties, noth TK's and little tits

Bryan said...

ah man, you had to work today?

boy it's nice living in alberta sometimes

Rag said...

I have a feeling Kostopoulos will score a hattrick tonight. I don't know why. I just have a feeling man!

HabsFan29 said...

@gillis - you're gunning for Panger territory in typos there. or is there a joke im missing?

CJAD reporting El Dandy is in for Kosto. we're saved!

@bryan - really? Rem Day is a holiday there? I swear I had no idea. Panger here I come!

gillis said...

haha, no joke there, let me fix it:
George Laraque was quiet because he was very busy serving everyone elses penalties, both Tom Kostopoulos's and Little Tits

moeman said...

BBQ'd hoisin pork sammiches, check.

Cayenned coleslaw (creamy, not vinegar'd), check.

Case of Stellas, check.

Pecan pie, check.

Fave couch spot, check.

Gal pal a Sens fan, check.

Extra fun bet put down on winning team, check.

Make up sex required, film at 11.

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Hello? Excuse me...I was told there would be pie...

moeman said...

Bonus, the pecan pie will be warmed and served with vanilla ice cream.

HabsFan29 said...

alright salad made, wine poured, let's do it!

er, I mean, bacon double cheeseburger made, beer poured, LET'S FUCKING GET IT ON!!!

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Mmmm......a la mode...

HabsFan29 said...

So SLC has Auld taken Gerber's #1 job for good?

moeman said...

Drop la rondelle!

HabsFan29 said...

Gord Miller: "an important statement game for both teams"

in early November. yeesh

Senators Lost Cojones said...

HF29: It is the secret that dare not speak it's name. But I sure fucking hope so...

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Marouelli. Great. Just fucking great.

HabsFan29 said...

well we had our chances. thats something i guess

moeman said...

TSN saying Jethro has been a Habs killer. No kidding.

moeman said...

Quoi?

HabsFan29 said...

could be in for a goalie battle...

moeman said...

Higgs!

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Fuck.

gillis said...

higgins finally finishes a breakaway without hitting the post

HabsFan29 said...

short handed! neat!

Auld goes down too early it looks like. gotta go high

moeman said...

Q for TSN's Magwired;

Is Auld still the star of the game?

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Moe: SOG are 8-2. Short answer, yes.

moeman said...

Lotsa speedy skating. moe likey.

moeman said...

Thnx SLC, cheers to ya.

moeman said...

Another Higgsian post. Merde.

HabsFan29 said...

well, we have some jump. let's see if we can have it for 60 minutes

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Jebus boys, did Gillette line those boards with used condoms? Holy bouncy!

gillis said...

pierre mcguire keeps freaking out about his matchup on ottawas top line

gillis said...

his= carbo

moeman said...

SLC, maybe them condoms are Trojans.

moeman said...

Big diff when Hammerlick plays.

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Moe: +1

Damn, I miss that logo.

gillis said...

fucking spezza

HabsFan29 said...

oh maguire, stop talking CFL. you are out of your league

HabsFan29 said...

great here comes a PP goal and a good first period by the Habs will be wasted

moeman said...

magwire never shuts up, unless his hotel roommate (chin-less) Miller yaks. They must really tire each other out.

Also, thnx for the +1 SLC. Keep them, erm, coming.

moeman said...

O hf29, ye of little faith, have more wine.

moeman said...

O to see Neil get into one with KRex.

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Welcome to my ruttu, Carey!

HabsFan29 said...

entertaining period i guess

gillis said...

the tsn panel is going to have a debate of their own on the TK hit

Senators Lost Cojones said...

When I inevitably drop dead of a busted aneurysm sometime in February, the M.E. will list "Cause of Death: Alex Picard".

HabsFan29 said...

get Mr Fabulous on the TSN panel!

moeman said...

The KTops debate has been overblown (EZ!), especially by the Big Smoke Media.

gillis said...

hell ya mr. fabulous.
tortorella would freak out

moeman said...

That 1st period was ribbed for SLC's pleasure.

~~~

Also, GO ALOUETTES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Senators Lost Cojones said...

29: He's already on it. Second guy from the left.

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Moe: Oddly enough, I derived very little pleasure. So, my wife was right. Huh, who knew?

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Oh, Bobby, Bobby, Bobby...are YOU getting strongly worded emails from the Barilkosphere...

moeman said...

Da Fonz should shave.

Darren has a really neat family name.

Blob Mackenzie's tongue can't keep up with his brain.

Duthie is only good when a monkey is making playoff picks.

HabsFan29 said...

fat Bob MacK is blaming the obstruction rule for the hit. that's, er, inventive Bob

moeman said...

SLC, 'Barilkosphere' = +1

moeman said...

Dreger on my teevee = yuck.

moeman said...

Time for some rubber.

Go Habs!

HabsFan29 said...

TSN makes a good point (for a change) about the live boards

Senators Lost Cojones said...

"Maxime Lapierre, more disciplined"

/Checks that off of my "words I never thought I'd hear" list

moeman said...

PoonTang backchecks Jethro, nice.

moeman said...

That was hockey!

moeman said...

Tic.

Tac.

No.

gillis said...

holy turtle necks!

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Ouch...

HabsFan29 said...

oh FUCK again?? how many over the glass penalties do we have this year?

Senators Lost Cojones said...

HF29: Get taller glass? Just sayin'...

HabsFan29 said...

Dave getting a little too friendly with those Allouettes there

Senators Lost Cojones said...

God...I'm going to be sick...

moeman said...

HIGGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

gillis said...

HHHIIIGGGIIIINNSSS!~!!

HabsFan29 said...

watta smile on Higgy's face!

moeman said...

Also, Koivu & Kovy on that PK were sick (not as sick as our SLC).

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Oh, go ahead folks. Sing your song...there's only a whole period left.

HabsFan29 said...

this game is blessed if Gui! is gonna score

moeman said...

Tenderness makes it 3-0. These are the Habs we've been expecting.

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Oh, bloody hell...

gillis said...

whats gui's special FHF nickname?

HabsFan29 said...

@gillis - anything with "suck" in it. actually, nothing really, just Gui! or Tenderness

HabsFan29 said...

that Pens Wings game looks like a barnburner. if only i had TSN2.

moeman said...

Hammerlick is my star of the game so far.

If the Habs #20 scores it'll be 'Auld Lang Syne'

moeman said...

I meant Auld, Lang, Twyne.

gillis said...

@moe: clever. that song was stuck in my head all day

gillis said...

two down, one to go

moeman said...

That might've been the Habs best period of the season.

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Everybody is minus something, Bob! WE HAVEN'T SCORED A FUCKING GOAL!!

Asshat...

moeman said...

Duthie, close game.

Pang, Auld is Luongoish.

Blob, math is hard.

moeman, shaddap!

gillis said...

but they're better than benoit brunet though

HabsFan29 said...

alright please just close this

HabsFan29 said...

or let's play hang on for dear life

moeman said...

gillis knows, brunet is brutal.

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Somebody needs to stick a cock in McGuire's mouth.

Yeah..we get it. Now go fuck yourself.

moeman said...

Not gonna gush but Habs are playing well so far in the 3rd.

HabsFan29 said...

seriously a cock in Maguire's mouth when he starts talking about TFS and "no goals"

HabsFan29 said...

that puck in the face has GOTTA hurt, mask or no

HabsFan29 said...

this game seems to be limping along nicely

gillis said...

ruutu's a dick

Senators Lost Cojones said...

Gillis: Yep. But he's our dick. And we love him.

moeman said...

Higgs bags a hat. Nice!

HabsFan29 said...

Gord reversed jinxed him

moeman said...

miller and magwire, two condescending cocks.

HabsFan29 said...

Kovy needs a decent chin strap

moeman said...

gord has a lot of phlegm in his throat. Just sayin'.

moeman said...

A very good game by our Habs.

Build on it.

Stars of the game Higgs and TFS™.

gillis said...

awww yeee

HabsFan29 said...

still five more SLC.

Senators Lost Cojones said...

G'night all. Good win. See you next Thursday. With any luck, we'll actually show up for that one.

moeman said...

Bonsoir et Olé mes ami(e)s.

HabsFan29 said...
