Yeah, we ain't that excited about Columbus either - Game Preview and Open Thread

Just sitting around bored. Hell, at least we have hockey again.

Waiting in line details - 7 PM start at the beautiful (?) Nationwide Arena. Blue Jackets coming off a solid win over the Oil and are 2-0-2 in their last 4 games. Habs coming off a bye week. In our only meeting last year, Habs were shutout.

Pay your cover charge to - Gotta give serious props to Light the Lamp. Keeping the faith on a hockey blog in a football town can't be easy.

Hot sexy Habs to watch - well at least Kovy and Pleks came out of the scoring closet last game with four points each. Tangy still leading us in goals, Markov in points.

Skanky Habs to watch - Gui!, you suck. You teased us with solid play for 3 games at the start of the season and now you have returned to your sucky ways of sucking. I think you should go suck in Hamilton. Little Tits has no points in his last 7 games, thanks to the sucky winger he has to play with now. When do we get into full Rhino panic mode? Are we there yet? And what about the sucky PP? Can we panic about that too?

Hot sexy BJ's to watch - all eyes on rookie Derick Brassard, leading the BJ's in points and the leading rookie scorer in the NHL. Face of the franchise Rick Nash is starting to come around with points in his last 3 games.

Skanky BJ's to watch - ahhh, who doesn't love a good skanky BJ?

Line-up du jour - Jaro gets the start tonight, TFS will go tomorrow. As for the fourth line, you guys always know before I do, so you can tell me.

We interrupt this preview to bring you a special news bulletin - Habs are for sale! No they're not! Balls-silly was mis-quoted! Blackberries for everyone! Gillett is broke! Liverpool rules! (well until that Hotspur disaster) Everyone freak out!

Post-game adult entertainment establishment - Kahoots looks like the crème de la crème of the Columbus adult scene. 150 dancers and delicious steaks? Sounds like heaven to me.

Let's talk BJ's in the comments

My BJ's suck!
Wait, let me rephrase that.

I have 3 of them in my pool (none named Brassard). Nash is off to a slow start and killing me.
I'm looking for UMMMMMMBERGER to score about 5 points against our Habs tonight though.
Habs win 6-5.

In response to the fear about "being like Ottawa last year"

Good starts in October usually mean good things for NHL teams.

League number crunchers have found the past four Stanley Cup champs have a combined record in October of 33-4-6.

Tampa went 6-0-1 in October of 2003. Carolina was 8-2-1 in October of 2005 while Anaheim was 9-0-3 in October of 2006 and Detroit went 10-2-1 last year.

Picked up Brassard in my pool yesterday.

5-4 Habs. Brassard with 3 points. Please.

Habsfan10 said...

For the last time, no BJ's in your pool, kids!

Wait, that didn't sound right.

Shutdown said...

it's alright, he's my bench center after h. sedin and datsyuk. i just needed a depth centerman, and my pool has 18 teams so no depth in the FA list.

he's in my line-up tonight, though.

Denis said...

I've got five habs in my pool...do I need to check into re-hab for this addiction?

What are the chances of a power play consisting of pleks, the kostits bros, gui, and markov lighting the lamp for a half dozen goals or so?

Damion said...

stop picking on Gui!

Bryan said...

i drafted brassard on draft day as my 'future franchise' player. he's sitting on my IR right now, but with datsyuk, cammalleri, and stastny as my 3 centres, i'm seriously considering moving datsyuk for a top dman or LW and making brassard my 3rd centre. keeper league too but i can only protect 6.

My God that stripper looks like a cross between Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.

HabsFan29 said...

HabsFan29 said...

HabsFan29 said...

HabsFan29 said...

HabsFan29 said...

pretty entertaining for a Columbus game. 19 shots!

HabsFan29 said...

well now you people aren't missing much of a game. that was a yawner of a period

melly said...

Nothing like an unending string of penalties to really bring the excitement.

Stay outta the penalty box!!!

James Gillis said...

am i the only one that finds that halak is playin like shit? i mean... that first goal was crap, it was movin at half a mile an hour. and hes sendin all the rebounds back in front.
its scary.

PS I hate benoit brunet
i miss you yvon

HabsFan29 said...

@James - the phrase "fighting the puck" comes to mind

and really, why is Yvon gone? why ruin the best hockey team working? i don't get it

HabsFan29 said...

it's so bittersweet when Breezer scores

HabsFan29 said...

Jaro vant thet one bek

HabsFan29 said...

just kill me

James Gillis said...

shit la tabernack

melly said...

I fucking hope this game is a wakeup call that they can't rely on a sharp goaltender to save their indisciplined asses.

Jaro is definitely having a brutal night, but possibly if the Habs hadn't spent a third of the game in the box we wouldn't be losing to the freaking Blue Jackets.

Rips it, scores! said...

Yeeeeaaahhhh booooiiii, 3-3!

HabsFan29 said...

TITS! and more TITS!

so we're gonna steal at least a point and everyone will say things are hunky dory. meh

James Gillis said...

1 point in the bank
goin for 2
lets go tits

Rips it, scores! said...

@29: Meh indeed. They need to get their arses in gear.

James Gillis said...

i just shit my pants,
too close

HabsFan29 said...

well we sure tried to lose

bring on the skills competition!

James Gillis said...

by the way, i love this blog.
FHF is definetly the best blog in town.

HabsFan29 said...

/takes bow

atta way to lose the puck tangy

HabsFan29 said...

gorgeous goal

HabsFan29 said...

we got what we deserved in the end

James Gillis said...

shit son

orangeman said...

Don't get me wrong, this loss was a team effort. But as a Halak fan I have to say it looked like he was trying to lose on principle.

Enough with this one game a week shit by the way (especially when the week is bookended by the Isles and the BJs).

Number31 said...

Totally was listening to the Bulldogs shit the bed instead. 3-1 Aeros with an empty netter boooooo but hey Patches, D'ag, Chips, Lehoux (only Dog who scored in the 1st), Maxwell almost got it but were stoned. Weber nearly took the Aeros netminder's arm off with his shot. These radio guys are dorky though.

1 point. Meh. BJs are boring. I saw a bit of the game while eating at Abbie's. WTF is with interference not looking like interference anyway? Can people play hockey please? Seriously, you sneeze on someone these days and you go to the box.

HFQ said...

I waited a week for this???

"Have-lack-of-ability-to-stop-puck" was brutal.
I have a half squirrel eaten leftover pumpkin on my front lawn that if you duck-taped a stick to it, could have at least stopped 1 of those shoot out goals.
