Grab your Tits, it's the Battle of Belarus

Look, I am sure nothing will come of this Battle of Belarus. Like Tyson-Spinks in 1988, there is just too much hype. But fuck, it was the easiest headline I ever wrote. Tune in to the CBC at 7PM and let the fun begin.

Your preview is Jaro starts and I agree with HFF33, Habs Suck. Panger, on the other hand, is an idiot.

According to HI/O, Halak is sick - Scary Price starts (what? too early?).

I'm thinking Big Tits and one of either D'Ags and MaxPac score tonight.

Though, to be honest, I think the surprise start will help him - he hasn't had time to get too down on himself. Plus he always plays well against the Leafs.

Word Verif = thessif

also, when pajama stock is paid to make a commentary above Kovalev, the shark has been jumped.

It gets funnier, kelly '1993 baby blue bandana boy' hahahrudey says he and ron mclame 'KNEW' 2 years ago that Drew Stafford would be an NHL star. Man do I miss Eric Desjardins popping a couple by that overrated sieve.

No cbc/hnic here in Gatineau, stuck with brunet.

Word verif = bleed. (screengrab'd for fun)

im getting fucking sick of all the penalties this team takes

Price looks like he's on Klonopin®.

brunet says 'he knew' the leaf would come out strong. He's a freakin' genius.

Sonia said...

Five shots?!? Well at least the Habs did their second period swoon in the first period. Good to get that out of the way.

Word verification: Crowfu. I guess that's for when you're eating vegetarian Crow?

moeman said...

brunet says that is exactly what the Habs needed. They pay him too little at the RDS.

Rips it, scores! said...

Don't worry everyone. The Habs will be mad as hell after this, they won't let it happen again. We know this because they'll tell the media as much in the post match interviews. Then they'll put in a effort somewhere along the road trip and all will look OK for a while until the arse falls out of the team's play once again.

I think that's the kind of game where we are supposed to repeatedly yell "Fuck!" very loudly time and time again.

Reminds me when I was a young urchin rooting for the young, talented, rebuilding and utterly clueless Nordiques. Good times.

Blogger is telling me "asphig". That pretty much sums it.

My conversation, goal-by-goal, with Carey Price:

1: Hey, didn't expect to see you here tonight. By the way, when are you planning on ever having another shutout? "Next time"? Sure, just checking.

2: Thanks for showing up tonight buddy. Nah, don't worry about it, it's only a game right?

3: Why are you even here? You do realize you're job is to stop them from scoring, right? Hamilton's not even that far, couldn't we've call up Denis? Yeah, that's right buddy, I'm asking about MARC FUCKING DENIS.

4: At least if we'd left the net empty tonight we could've gotten a sixth skater out there. Thoughts?

5: WHERE IS YOUR PRIDE FOR FUCK SAKE

ps. Carbo's reaction after the game: "We can't sink any lower than this." Can we give the job back to Demers before Carbo proves himself wrong again?

Can we just skip this weekend and go straight to Monday's game preview? 33, are you going to the 'Dome?

perplexed in montreal said...

Can we trade Kovalev and Price for Lecavalier now?

South Shore Habs Fan said...

As many people pointed out on HI/O, you have to wonder whether at least a part of this falls to the goaltending coaches. It seems like Price's first instinct these days is to go down into the butterfly - I can't remember the last time he made an athletic save. I'm not saying he has to be Dominik Hasek or Tim Thomas, but wasn't he originally a hybrid goalie? Are the coaches pushing the butterfly too much?

Well, either that or he's stoned out of his mind. One of the two.

perplexed in montreal said...

To be fair to Price, the pressure he's been placed under is immense.
