For the love of fucking God please just win ONE FUCKING GAME - Game 4 Preview and Open Thread

Those fake tits should be embarrassed wearing that logo

Alright I'm just gonna get this over with early in the day so I can actually maybe get some work done (yeah right). Let's face it, this series has been a disaster. This 100th Anniversary season has been a fucking disaster. You can go ahead and blame injuries, blame reffing, blame Bob, blame Carey, blame Rollie Melanson, blame Benoit Brunet - look, there's a lot of blame to go around here. I don't give a shit about blame. I give a shit about the Habs, and right now the whole fucking thing is embarrassing.

Here's your preview for tonight - I don't give a fuck. I'm sure the game starts at 7 at the Bell Centre and I'm sure that there will be some players on the ice. Hopefully only 6 at a time. I don't know who they will be, and I don't fucking care. The only thing I want is for them to fucking care. Like they seemed to for the first 30 minutes Monday night. Do that and you can win a fucking game and salvage some pride. Salvaging pride - look what we've become.

Or just lose already so I can get on with my life. That'd be fine too.

Want a win or a quick death? Discuss.

We're done aren't we. This is it.

kevincrumbs said...

Ah, our vaunted power play. /sarcasm

moeman said...

She's wrote kidz.

kevincrumbs said...

This is ugly.

HabsFan29 said...

i'd like to thank you all for making this a wonderful year on FHF. it's been a blast

see you in September!

moeman said...

Bob paid the Price.

moeman said...

salt meet wound

HabsFan29 said...

i have a real paper bag over my head now

kevincrumbs said...

Wow, even uglier. OVER.

Daniel Plainview said...

fuck my life.

kevincrumbs said...

All I ask is that this team doesn't pull some dirty, gutless shit so that our critics don't have any ammunition. I'd ask for a win but I know that's too much to ask tonight.

Rips it, scores! said...

How are we down 4-1? I'm honestly baffled.

lawyergirl77 said...

FUCK THIS SHIT.

moeman said...

atRips, mistakes, mistakes, mistakes.

copyranter said...

Bruins anncr Jack Edwards call on that fourth goal:
REACH FOR THE LIGHT SWITCH, IT'S TIME TO SAVE ELECTRICITY ON EARTH DAY!!!!
(screamed at the top of his lungs)

What a fucking idiot.

kevincrumbs said...

Happier memories. God, this sucks.

Senators Lost Cojones said...

The next Playoffs Anonymous meeting will be held tomorrow evening, at ScotiaBank Place in Ottawa.

We'll supply the coffee, but we do insist new members provide the cookies. It's only fair to the Blues fans.

kevincrumbs said...

Wow, Carey Price just lost it.

moeman said...

@SLC, will TimBits suffice?

HoustonHab said...

Go Ryder Go!!!

Pop a 3rd and give the stick to Bob!

Senators Lost Cojones said...

@moe: Timbits will do nicely. And I feel your pain.

Rips it, scores! said...

Jesus, Price is broken mentally. I don't blame him for reacting to the crowd but that fact that he actually did.......I honestly fear for his future in Montreal.

Poor kid.

Damion said...

Carey didn't expect Hammer to make a perfect pass to the Bruins, but it was a shot he should have saved. As with the 3rd goal as well.

And... wow, Price just pulled a Roy!

lawyergirl77 said...

FUCK THIS SHIT.

Did you guys see the move Price just made to the crowd? This is going to get fucking ugly soon.

They're constantly playing music even during the ads to drown out the booing.

I have NEVER seen the crowd this ugly, in all my years of watching the Habs.

Daniel Plainview said...

we've ruined Price.

Damion said...

holy shit. holy shit. holy shit. composure is lost.

Daniel Plainview said...

Bob will put Carey's through so many lows that the kid will just go numb.

Damion said...

i was at Patrick Roy's last game, and the crowd was worse than tonight. way worse.

Dejected Hab fan said...

Could we at least injure a Bruin or two? Nothing career threatening.

kevincrumbs said...

Habs who have really sucked this series:

Pleks
Hamr
Max
Gui
Rhino
AK46
Komi (but better tonight)
Price

Habs who have been good (for our standards) this series:

Koivu
Kovy
Metro

moeman said...

Let the bloodletting begin.

moeman said...

@DH, never attempt to injure an opponent, no matter what.

Moey said...

What did Price do to the crowd?

HabsFan29 said...

so what else is on?

kevincrumbs said...

I can't get no satisfaction... how appropriate. Let's just forfeit the 3rd period as you know the team won't come out with any pride.

I wonder how empty Centre Bell will be at the start of the 3rd and I ain't talking about long lines at the concession stands.

moeman said...

@hf29, A new L&O SVU episode tonight.

HabsFan4 said...

Price is an idiot.

Just a moronic idiot.

Summon the biggest skeleton in this team's closet on elimination night of the 100th season.

lawyergirl77 said...

Damion - I was there too. Trust me when I say that this is worse.

Damion said...

@LG77 - nope. unless you tell me you're at the game now, this is no where near the same thing.

lawyergirl77 said...

Moey - after making an easy save, the crowd sarcastic cheered him. And he raised his hands sarcastically too.

Mr. LG77 sez: mtl is lucky. The booers are leaving. The real fans are staying behind.

kevincrumbs said...

So much for Carey being so cool and composed at all times, to the point of showing no emotion. Man, I remember hearing that all last year.

God, I know we've sucked in recent years but I can't help but feel like this is the dawn of another dark period in the Montreal Canadiens' history.

When people argue about not bothering to make the playoffs, I promise I'll never be one of those "anything can happen!!!!" guys again.

moeman said...

Tell him lg77.

moeman said...

Leave Carey alone!!!!!!!!

lawyergirl77 said...

Damion - yes I am. You're right - the last Roy game ended uglier. But there is one last period to play, and I think it's gonna get worse.

moeman said...

re: Julien & Ryder, its CHadenfreude.

tfediuk said...

well, i stopped watching soon as boston got their fourth. cant get the fuckin puck out of their own zone, nope. try to make the hit, or do something fancy. fuck the 2009 habs. this summer had better be hot as all fuck. i dont want to see ice for another six months

Rips it, scores! said...

I.....*sigh*....I'm just heartbroken at this point. That Price flip-out honestly hurts.

I feel a little bit like crying. I haven't felt like that when watching sports for about a decade now.

Can we forfeit our bi-centennial season please?

Moey said...

Have people forgotten that we only have half our team out there? The only way we could have won this series without Markov would be divine intervention and it didn't happen. It's that simple.

Damion said...

@LG77 - eek! (and condolences. i would never wish witnessing this game on anyone). unfortunately, i'm watching NESN. their cameras are clearly far enough away to mute the abuse.

Daniel Plainview said...

motherfuck this season.

cottoneye said...

Fuck. I really want the fans to stop mocking/booing Price. We are going to run him out of town, and He's going to go and be Jesus Price somewhere else, and we will probably blame Gainey. Am I the only one who thinks he wasn't bad? Not saying he was good, but there has to be 1,000,000 other reasons to why we're losing, including that, yes, the BRUINS ARE A BETTER TEAM.

Honestly, I'm ashamed of some of the ''fans'' in there. And I don't even say that when we bo the US anthem or burn cop cars.

Daniel Plainview said...

we are the Leafs.

kevincrumbs said...

Here's what Carey was trying to do:

He knew that the game was over and with that, everyone was going to turn off their TVs. However, someone from RDS told him that if he pulled some wacky shit to keep people tuned in during the 3rd to see how ugly it got, they'd give him some of the ad revenue.

Also, he gets ten cents from every copy of La Presse & Le Journal sold tomorrow.

Carey's just a wise businessman.

tfediuk said...

ps, thanks for a great season everyone here. looking forward to hearin from you all in october.

lawyergirl77 said...

A ton ofplayers are stretching in the hallway leading to the ice. Started at 5 mins left in intermission.

Damion said...

we definitely have injuries to key players, but if a team needs divine help when it's missing Markov, doesn't that say something about the rest of the team?

kevincrumbs said...

@cottoneye: Carey was fine tonight and I'm usually one of the first to tear him a new one when he sucks. If this city and team can't bother to let young players develop, we might as well just trade all our picks for veterans. Then we'll be good! You know, like Toronto does... oh, wait.

Rips it, scores! said...

@Moey: Yeah, we have half a team out there but it's the cloud that this will leave over the club during the summer (and probably longer) that's riling me up at this point. They have tried their best in games 1,3 & so far tonight (game 2 was......let's not go there). Stupid mistakes have done us in, no luck. Plus, Boston are damn good.

moeman said...

Go Canucks Go!

Rips it, scores! said...

@Daniel: No, we're the Senators.

lawyergirl77 said...

Looks like Beliveau went into locker room. He followed the players out...

Boob Gainey said...

27 Celsius this weekend.

Summer's here.

moeman said...

@Rips, no the Sens made the Finals.

We are the Habs.

WV = qaffe

kevincrumbs said...

+1 for the playing of Depeche Mode's "Personal Jesus" over the PA. It made me laugh and that's no small feat tonight.

Rips it, scores! said...

Beliveau is a gentleman and a legend.

Senators Lost Cojones said...

@Rips, @ Moe: Hey now. I understand that awful, empty feeling you may be experiencing right now...but there's no need to go tearing open other people's wounds.

HoustonHab said...

@kevincrumbs

Players develop in the AHL.

Imagine if we had a young netminder who was the best goalie in the AHL for two years in a row. A goalie who could step in during injury and win a few, even, steel a few games. A goalie who could turn the team around when they are down...

Imagine...

lawyergirl77 said...

Place is half empty now. Lots of empty seats in lower AND upper bowls.

Damion said...

fucking habs. i defrosted a pied de cochon tourtiere for tonight's game.

moeman said...

I've met and took in a Sens game with Mr. Beliveau. He is an amazing human being. My guess is he told the players to hold their heads high and wear the CH proud. Great move.

KML said...

Fuck. I'm not even watching the game and my eyes just started to water after reading those comments.

It kills me to think of all of the hope from last year and as recently as January that has gone up in a cloud suck-flavoured smoke.

Worse yet, we now have to deal with the constant parade of shitheads (McGuire, Kypreos, la Presse's entire staff) asking "how did it all go wrong?".

Fuck me.

kevincrumbs said...

I hope Beliveau had a one on one chat with Carey, no matter how short. Hopefully Carey goes somewhere far, far away from hockey this summer and comes back better than ever. He could go climb Kilimanjaro as that seemed to have done Chara some good.

moeman said...

Turning point?

Rips it, scores! said...

Heh, sorry SLC.

kevincrumbs said...

That quick whistle was fucking bullshit.

Boob Gainey said...

2-1 in New York.

Very good game.

Daniel Plainview said...

this season has been bullshit.

kevincrumbs said...

Way to give up a three on two to make a useless hit, guys.

kevincrumbs said...

Komi, give it a rest. This is embarrassing.

Boob Gainey said...

Avery just tried to injure a Cap who was racing back for an icing. Might have succeeded.

He gets two. Tortorella is going apeshit.

kevincrumbs said...

Well, nice way to end your Canadiens career, Komi. Thanks for nothing.

L Dude said...

@moe: Not really turning point, but we'll use it as an excuse. WE just gotta face it. We have a team full of hacks.

Bring out the nitro.

kevincrumbs said...

@L Dude: I'm impressed by your calling the anthem booing on the first comment on Game 3's post.

cottoneye said...

@Kevincrumbs: At least Komo is showing emotions. Stupid and useless emotions, but emotions nonetheless.

Boob Gainey said...

Ovie hits the post.

Then Caps get a bad pen in the offensive zone.

moeman said...

@LDude, I agree but a turning point that made the game 3-1 and sucked the air out of the game, team, crowd, city. There's always next year.

Daniel Plainview said...

"this ain't no mecca, this place is fucked."
some mid-90s punk for you.

Van Hab said...

Well, looks like my predictions were unfortunately true and I'll have to wait a long time before watching any CH playoff hockey. From the looks of the comments here, and the boxscore, this has been another ugly fucking game.
I had a little crisis of faith last night (see prev. thread) and I appreciate HF10 et al talking me down from the ledge. I'll be joining my girlfriend and my BC family on the couch, cheering for the Canucks and I'll be happy with every W they get, however I'm a fool to think that satisfaction will EVER come close to watching the Fucking Habs.
I'm a Hab for life, and the frustration only makes a CH win that much better. I'm in this for life.

So what happens with FHF once the season is done? Are their regular updates? golf course reviews? DO you just shut it down until training camp?
Either way I just want to say THANK YOU for providing a place for an expat Habs fan like myself to feel at home. Merci and God bless.

I wonder what the penalty is for killing a hooker in Beijing? should I even type somthing like that here? AM I being monitored?

Daniel Plainview said...

I was just about to ressurrect Dirk Irvin Sr. to coach the Habs but I realized that he no longer qualifies for the fucking job.
We are doomed to motherfucking mediocrity with that motherfucking bullshit rule.

kevincrumbs said...

Are they chanting Carey? Gainey?

Damion said...

are they fucking chanting "carey"?! fucking assholes.

lawyergirl77 said...

Cheering in stands: adieu Gainey.

kevincrumbs said...

A too many men on the ice penalty to end the season? How fitting, how fucking fitting.

HabsFan29 said...

hey how's it going in here? i've been watching this Lost clip show. total waste of time. like this Habs season! zing!

we didn't give up a goal in the 3rd (so far). build on that kids!

looking forward to hearing the boo / cheer mix when the siren sounds

moeman said...

Well its over.

Thanks for all the fun kidz.

kevincrumbs said...

The centennial is over. Thank GOd.

HabsFan29 said...

thank god it's over

Sonia said...

Well, I don,t think I'll be going online for a few days, so I'll just say Goodnight to you all, FHF Gang.

Boob Gainey said...

Avery hits a Cap in the face for no reason and gets a pen with 3 min to go.

Tortorella can't believe it.

HabsFan29 said...

Higgy looked like he may cry

Boob Gainey said...

Fucking idiot Lundquist stoning the Caps.

It only means the Bruins will make it to the conference final. Fuck.

Daniel Plainview said...

Dandenault looked like he was crying.

I miss Saku already.

kevincrumbs said...

Higgy played hard during the 3rd. Good for him. He's always shown emotion, he seemed genuinely sad the year that we fucked up against the Leafs. I hope we keep him and I say that as someone who tore him a new one at various points this year.

Good on the crowd for cheering and saluting our team at the end, no matter how undeserving they were.

The Bruins (obviously) deserved to win this. I don't think they played to 100% of their capabilities and that's got to be scary for the remaining teams in the East. Good luck* and have fun gloating, you deserve it tonight.

* - In no way does this mean I'd ever cheer for you fuckers.

moeman said...

kc knows, congrats to the Bs and their fans (the classy ones). Enjoy Round 2. Go Canucks.

habsfaninDC said...

I missed "The Gesture" can someone throw me a play by play?

Boob Gainey said...

It was a bad year. Better luck next year guys.

Congrats to FHF for having a great blog.

Damion said...

i haven't felt this empty since mad hatters moved from metcalfe.

Rips it, scores! said...

Well, that was certainly an experience. A hellish one but one nonetheless.

Cheers to the FHF for providing us with such entertainment over the season.

Good luck to everyone and see you in the off season.

Rips it, scores! said...

Forgot to say, congrats Boston and good luck in the rest of the playoffs.

HabsFan4 said...

Dandy was in tears. Good for Dandy tears.

What a complete waste of my life. Losing has never hurt less. I'm glad I can now openly cheer for a real hockey team and that Mrs HF4 can watch American Idol on HD again.

Daniel Plainview said...

on a more positive note, this blog is all kinds of awesome and incredibly cathartic. Thanks for putting up with my potty mouth and reminding me of the Korean usher singing O Canada.

Moey said...

Unbelievable, Hammer has a broken foot, Kovy had a charlie horse for two months, played through the flu, now it's all coming out. Trash them all night long if it makes you fell better.
Gimme a break.

lawyergirl77 said...

4 - Dandy was in tears? Really? I knew I liked that guy...

kevincrumbs said...

@Moey: Playing devil's advocate here, I'm sure the Bruins have some undisclosed major injuries, too. Every time has them at this time of the year.

If I'm going to be an optimist, I'm going to look at this as the absolute worse we can play. Considering all the injuries, off ice shit, ownership issues, coaching issues , the fact we finished 8th is... I don't know, not that bad. The season before was an overachievement so as long as we stay the course and no one does anything completely stupid, our future should be okay.

Of course, it all depends what happens in the summer. Will Bob be here? Will Carey be here? Kovy? Koivu? Who comes to replace them?

South Shore Habs Fan said...

I believed up until the 3-1 offside goal by I-look-like-I-wear-eyeshadow douchebag Kessel.

After that I was watching just to make sure Carey didn't skate to the bench of his own accord.

It's been nice knowing all of you, and I look forward to whatever snark you can muster about our inevitably disappointing offseason moves.

GO LUONGO! I guess that means the rest of the Canucks, too.

Moey said...

@Kevin,

I want Price, Koivu, Bob & Kovy to stay. Anyway, the rum is really kicking in now, time to call it a night.

Boob Gainey said...

Laraque interview: he's explaining that free agents aren't coming here. Too fucking crazy. They only use the Habs to get a better deal elsewhere.

bond said...

there you go assholes............ how does the kool-aid taste? since you got eaten by the big con, want to try for next year? the next twist will be... we're going to get a high draft pick!!! 'cause nos glorieux ain't making the playoffs next year. this franchise is a fucking mess. georgie g. just saw his selling price drop by 25 mil.

orangeman said...

Well, at least it's not surprising. Should be an exciting summer. Thanks FHF for being entertaining and bringing expat Habs fans together.
