Marisa is gone, our playoff hopes aren't; New streak starts tonight - Rangers Game Preview and Open Thread

Well, our wonderful streak with a certain hot SI swimsuit model is done, but there is still business to take care of starting in New York ce soir. Business. New York. Wall Street. Wall Street, the movie. 80's greed. 80's hot SI swimsuit models. Elle. Turn back the clock to when Elle ruled the earth, the playoffs were safely clinched with a month to go, and the Rangers trotted out garbage like Mark Pavelich on the first line.

Despite all the sky is falling talk, a win by the Habs tonight clinches a playoff spot at the Rangers expense. A loss in OT and a Panthers loss clinches a playoff spot too. 3 games to get in ... who would have thunk we'd be this close to the edge? As an aside, after all the fun we've had with the Rangers and fuckheads like the Blueshirt Bulletin, dropping those loudmouth, God's-gift-to-mediocrity, ONE CUP IN 70 FUCKING YEARS, smug asshole fans and their overrated team out of the playoffs might be even better than last year's miracle on de la Montagne. Is there any neutral party out there who likes the Rangers? I think one-time commenter and Bruins fan B's fan for life said it best:

"I would hope you said they suck at life, because they do. But I try not to think too much about them, as I have no time to think about a waste of space such as the Rangers."

Jesus, even Bruins fans think they're better than you.

Drop the Rangers out of the playoffs and the whole hockey world will applaud, Habs. No Sean Avery sightings in the playoffs!

On to the points of bullet-like appearance:

  • 7:00 pm from Madison Square Garden, the world's most famous non-hockey related events arena;
  • Habs lost to the Sens to halt momentum, now 5-3-2 in last ten. Rangers 5-4-1 but lost last two;
  • There's Rangers news out there, I'm sure, but the only one we know of is the aforementioned Blueshirt Bulletin ... and it's now basically a placeholder for a pay site called Blueshirt Bulletin +. Times are tough writing about the 6th most popular pro sports franchise in NYC, methinks;
  • Hot Habs list reads much the same as the last week, Kovy/Koivu/Tanguay. Lukewarm Rangers include $300 million man Scott Gomez (9 pt in 12 games.)
  • Uh, Zombiepleks? AK46? Anytime you're ready. After a hot start, Nickolai Zherdev has hit a wall. Deadline acquisition Nik Antropov started well in a Rangers uniform before the inevitable knee injury (PPP and Eyebeleaf just nodded their heads knowingly).
  • Habs debating activating potential new owner Serge Savard to help out on the powerplay. Schneider is either out for the season or raring to go tonight, depending on who you want to believe. Markov is a definite out, unless he's not. No, wait, he is. Maybe. Rangers appear healthy in body, if not in mind. Sean Avery still an ass, though.
  • Word is Price gets the start, if he's over the "flu". King Henrik the Slumping should get the start for the Rangers, unless NY wants to put their playoff lives in the hands of Steve Valiquette.

    Your post-game entertainment is either the delicious tears of the Rangers faithful or more pointless blaming of Brad May and Mikhail Grabovski for ruining our season with clean hits.

Boob Gainey said...

I don't hate the Rangers. Sure, I hate Glen Sather, and Sean Avery is an attention-seeking doofus, but New York City is the greatest city in the world.

I hate the Bruins. I hate the Nordiques.

That's who I hate.

HabsFan29 said...

back before the internet, i breathlessly waited for Elle Macpherson SI Swimsuit Issues in the mail so i could masturbate. such memories!

RDS has Big Tits and Dagger in, BGL and Stewie out. there goes our 5 on 3 secret weapon!

Araev16 said...

I charge 8 cents per posting of my quotes. Pay up.

BTW. Bruins fans KNOW we are better than Rangers fans. Not think.

Moey said...

I was listening to Francois Gagnon whining on the Team 990 this morning, he was saying in essence that if only Bob would tell them the truth they wouldn't have to make up stories. Here's a little tip for ya Francois and RDS...STFU until Bob issues a statement.

verif word - rotsa

as in we need to score rotsa goals tonight.

L Dude said...

According to Sportsnet (I know...), Schneider is in NY to get a 2nd opinion from a shoulder specialist.

I think I hate the Rangers almost more than any team, including the B's and Leafs. But, I also think I'd rather see the Rangers play the B's in round 1 instead of the Panthers, on the off chance the Habs make it to round 2.

kevincrumbs said...

We'll win tonight.

Now with that optimism aside, I don't like the Rangers but I hate the Leafs and the Flyers. I dislike the Bruins more and the Senators are just fucking annoying.

Thank God for no BGL.

L Dude said...

I also hate watermelon flavoured gum. I don't know where that's coming from. Melons maybe??? Which I do like BTW.

Cornelius Hardenbergh said...

Bruins fans are better than Rangers fans because fuck new york.

I don't know who to root for in this one. Usually it's whoever's playing the rangers and whoever's playing the habs. Now I am stuck in a paradox of dislike.

Maybe that Price's "flu" is really more like the alien impregnation from Alien? That would be cool.

It's good to see that y'all hate the bruins almost as much as we hate the habs down here.

lawyergirl77 said...

I wouldn't hate the Rangers, but for that douche Sean Avery. I hate him with the passion of a thousand burning suns.

Actually, more like 999. I reserve the thousand for that little bitch Grabby. And Lucic.

God I hope we win tonight...

Boob Gainey said...

Hating Sean Avery is so conventional. He's like a comic book villain.

Dale Hunter - now there was a guy worth hating.

I'm a bit older than HF29. I used to jerk off to the Christie Brinkley swimsuit issue.

HabsFan29 said...

@boob - i recall the Brinkley issues too, believe me. this one is still my fave cover of all time

moeman said...

The NYR are meh, plus Sather is an ex-Hab.

I respectfully hate the Bs.

I despise the leaf and all things leaf, except Steve Thomas' wife. A gorgeous and fun gal.

Many a 14 year old's spank bank deposits made because of this 1975 SI cover babe.

Habsfan10 said...

@Cornelius:

Feel free to hate on us all you want if we meet in round one. Till then, channel all your latent Boston vs New York in any sport hate towards the Rangers. We'll be happy to hate with you in a week.

As a youth, I had a special place in my heart/pants for Stephanie Seymour, before Axel Rose ruined her.

South Shore Hab said...

From the Morning Skate thread:

The big line. Or the AFT line? About Fucking Time!

Ding ding ding, we have a winner!

Figures that it comes after the streak ends.


Hate the Bruins, but at least their fans hate us equally, which makes for a good rivalry. Hate the Rags because they think they're God's gift to hockey, hate Philly because their fans are more interested in seeing head-shots and fights than actual hockey, and hate the Leafs just for existing.

Sens... meh. They annoy me with their "Alfie, Spazzy, and Homicide are the bestest players evarr!", but otherwise they're alright by me.


I'm still pissed that Metropolit didn't get a chance to show off his 5-on-3 skills. Would've been a huge upgrade over Laraque.

Habsfan10 said...

Oh sure, HF29 promises ice cream and you all comment like crazy. No good bunch of freeloading bastards.

HabsFan29 said...

@10 - heh. bribery gets you everywhere around here. the key is to weasel out later

Lostinleafland said...

Overheard at the airport earlier....
"Flu my ass. Take it easy on the sauce during the flight Carey. We need you tonight.
Lots of time during the summer to hoist a dozen beers before breakfast."

gillis said...

@HF10: You can't blame people for wanting to jump onto the bangwagon, especially if theres ice cream in it.

I knew it. As soon as Gainey didnt confirm that Schneider and Markov were out, I knew its because he wants them to play injured. Give them a few pain killers between every period and they'll be fine. I'm sure that if were the beginning of the season, Markov would sit for 3 weeks and schneider would get surgery, but no, THIS IS THE PLAYOFFS BABY (at least hopefully).

kevincrumbs said...

On Notice!

Feel free to make your own here.

Damion said...

Assuming the security guards at MSG don't eject me for heckling, I'll be screaming at Avery all night. If I can talk in court tomorrow morning, I'll not have done enough.

Go Habs Go! I really hope they don't shit all over the ice tonight. My seats are not in friendly territory.

Habsfan10 said...

Is there any friendly territory in MSG? Buncha savages in that town.

Give em hell, Damion.

moeman said...

moe's notice

Damion said...

Well, some friendlier than others. Habs fans (well, any visiting fan base) are more likely to pay for the good seats than Blueshirt fans. We're up in the 300s this game, but when my wonderful wife went to the box office to purchase behind the bench tickets for our anniversary, the ticket agent said "you a Canadiens fan? we only sell those seats for Knicks and Liberty games."

gillis said...

gillis' notice

my verif word is rammet, heheh

Shutdown said...

29. I don't even know what the fuck flavours Baskin Robbins has. Get me some Ben et Jerry's.

Shutdown said...

29, you can bring us to ben et jerry's on april 21st, free cone day. free cone day.

South Shore Hab said...

Mine

I'm so very mature.

HabsFan29 said...

gillis I have been told by an inanimate web graphic to publicly ridicule you

you suck

moeman said...

heh @gillis

gillis said...

HF29: Harsh

gillis said...

Wait a second, what the fuck is that. Damn, I'm stupid.

I was wondering why you said that. Damn. I'll try again

moeman said...

gillis is our own Breezer.

South Shore Hab said...

You suck, gillis!


Lines for tonight:
Tanguay - Koivu - Kovalev
Zombei Kostitsyn - Pleky - D'Ags
Tenders - MadMax - TtB
Higgy - Metro - Dandy

Wow, that's a sleepy second line.

No change to the defense. If the PP sucks, though, I hope Yannick Weber can pack quickly.

gillis said...

Wow, I really didn'ts read the instructions.

How the fuck did you guys do it? How do I link a pic saved to my comp?

gillis said...

@moeman: whos trunk will I live in?

But I'm not the onyl that has done it. Apparently 66316 have done it.

moeman said...

@technolosergillis

I use PhotoBucket.

moeman said...

@gillis, I think we should have you change your screen/blogger name to 66316

66316 said...

@moeman: Done

And yes i am a technoloser. WTF is photobucket? Fuck it, I'll just tell you what mine said, its easier that way.

It said: I <3 Sean Avery's Sloppy Seconds

moeman said...

@66316, heh

photobucket.com is your image posting friend. Bonus, its free, unlike ice cream.

66316 said...

@moeman: damn, I looked at your blog and it turns out youre a computer geek. That makes me feel better about the fact that i cant figure it out and you can. As for 29, shutdown, SSHF and KC, well, they must be computer geeks too.

I'm the son of a computer geek but i guess its just not in a genetic thing

moeman said...

@66316, yeah I'm geeky but I never updated that blogger blog. Blame the beer. Now there's an idea, a beer blog!

66316 said...

my new temporary name is the best line hockey has ever seen: Lemieux-Price-Tom the Bomb Can't-Stop-oulos

66316 said...

hofbrauhaus beer in munich is the best. 6 liters of that when i was in germany. Its great.

moeman said...

@66316, add an 'hf' to that name and your golden, like a shower

Word Verif - fande

66316 said...

sorry i forgot to mention that I got to taste all 6 liters twice that night. Almost as good as in "stand by me"

HabsFan66316 said...

@moe: why not?

South Shore Habs Fan said...

Okay, I'm over the shock of the injuries. Time to kick the shit out of the retirement-home-for-aging-stars Rangers.

I predict 3-1 Habs. Kovy, Lapierre, and Pleky (off a Rangers defenseman's leg) get the goals. Carey faces 38 shots, including 17 in the 3rd period, because the D is exhausted.

GO HABS GO!

kevincrumbs said...

I step away for around an hour and we're all berating Gillis and making him (him, right? I can never tell here on FHF) change his name now?

I have nothing hockey related to add... for now.

moeman said...

The mute button on the tv remote should be renamed the joelbouchard button.

kevincrumbs said...

Oh, and the "Sean Avery's mom" thing made me laugh.

eyebleaf said...

I miss Marisa.

HabsFan29 said...

@the commentor formerly known as gillis - you drank SIX litres at the Hofbrauhaus?? I am impressed. when i was there, into my fourth litre i was puking in the bathroom. good times

speaking of beer, if i may take a moment to say one good thing about Toronto. i just got me semi-monthly Ontario beer delivery and I am really enjoying this Steam Whistle. quality beverage

on a totally unrelated note, the Simpsons where Homer boxes is on now. Moe's best performance ever

HabsFan29 said...

Commentor and FHF friend and NYC resident Damion is at the game. he's sending iPhone pictures. here's the warm up

Scratch said...

I'm somewhat fucking sober after a downing five Irish Car Bombs and three pints of Guinness. What the bloody fucking hell was in Bobbling Gainey's head putting Laraque in on a 5-on-3??? I just about gave up after that and looked at that beautiful dark brown goodness that is Guinness.

So now, it's Elle Macpherson? Going retro is the vogue thing now, huh? Fine.

Go throttle your cocks. [NSFW]

Anything short of a beatdown of the Rags tonight is an admission the season is over.

The fuck it is.

Go you fucking Habs!

lawyergirl77 said...

Alright motherfuckers you'd better not make my day any FUCKING WORSE than it already was.

HabsFan29 said...

@scratch - Sirens!!! i love that movie. well, not really, but it has some good parts

am now praying...

kevincrumbs said...

Does Adam Graves just live at MSG or something?

HabsFan29 said...

SHUT THE FUCK UP JOEL

HabsFan66316 said...

@KC: Its a him.

@hf29: Well, I had 3 liters at around 2pm, then 3 more later that night. It sure did it. I start puking it all out. You know how you need to go out side to get to the bathroom. Well, I didn't manage to get to the bathroom so I had at least 20 people watch me projectile write on the nice stone walkway. That was a good night.

HabsFan29 said...

w00t PP!

but who will replace BGL?

HabsFan66316 said...

edit: started
edit: right

Theres more edits but those are the most obvious ones to me

HabsFan29 said...

whoopsie Carey!

kevincrumbs said...

UGH. PP looks even worse than last night.

HabsFan66316 said...

I couldnt stand watching BGL on the 5 on 3 last night. I felt like pulling a plaxico burress

Rips it, scores! said...

Price, WTF was that?

HabsFan66316 said...

ayoye

HabsFan29 said...

i feel tense

kevincrumbs said...

I like the way Metro is playing so far.

Scratch said...

During Elle's time, it was Cindy Crawford wrecking my cock on countless nights, HF29.

Hahaha.

Word verif: fackthr

Fackhr, fackthr, fackevrywhr.

HabsFan29 said...

god this fourth line excites me

Rips it, scores! said...

If Montreal lose tonight (and fair play to them, they have started this game well, they look very hungry), FHF will have to try something new to save the season, something desperate.....perhaps an ugly world leader streak.

Presenting the potential first candidate, Irish Taoiseach (Prime Minister) Brian Cowen. I hate him so much. He looks like the love child of Boss Nass and a slug.

HabsFan29 said...

oh im not happy now

kevincrumbs said...

Komi, you dumb fuck!

Rips it, scores! said...

FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK

Rips it, scores! said...

Horrible giveaway by Komisarek, what was he thinking? You don't fanny about in your own end when you're surrounded by opposition players. Price should have been more alert, was down very quickly again (cheers Rollie!).

kristin said...

Jaro! Jaro! Jaro!

word verif = chrap as in oh chrap

kevincrumbs said...

Rhino, you stupid fuck! They already called a penalty on Dubinsky. Go to the fucking bench, you fuck!

I think I need a drink. This is brutal to watch.

Rips it, scores! said...

O'Byrne, you dumb fuck. Don't jeopardise a PP opportunity!

HabsFan29 said...

put Schneider out there with one arm already

and just as i type that!! woooooo 4th line

Rips it, scores! said...

Allez le Dandy!

kristin said...

Praise Jebus. A Habs goal. That's something I didn't think I'd see tonight.

HabsFan66316 said...

lets go les boys!!!

Im definitly changing my name after tonight. I can't recognize my own comments. And its confusing me

HabsFan29 said...

fuck you sean

HabsFan29 said...

ok we survived a period

i think Metro leads the team in ice time

Rips it, scores! said...

Good first period, mostly. The Rangers are scary against this Habs D on the break. Very scary.

Moey said...

I really like Metro, he's giving it his all out there, he could teach AK46 a thing or two.

verif word - worsess

as in who is worsess Big Tits or Pleky>

South Shore Habs Fan said...

I really hope someone cracks Avery's head open with a spade one day.

All they would find inside is a gerbil with rage issues.


Word verification: "gablygoo". That's just awesome.

fezworth said...

@gillis: Upload a pic to your blog and then link from there.

kevincrumbs said...

I like our non scoring line of Pleks, AK46 & Dagger.

/sarcasm

Moey said...

@SSHF,

And said Gerbil made it's way there from Avery's anus. One pissed off Gerbil.

HabsFan29 said...

JESUS FUCKING PRICE GADDAMNIT.

Jaro! Jaro! Jaro!

Rips it, scores! said...

Christ, his poor, fragile confidence will never recover from this.


URGHJGHJGKHIJDFHEDNJIO


Word verif: tosses, as in "Price tosses the Rangers a playoff lifeline.

kevincrumbs said...

Good glove save by Carey there... I feel like he's trying to show that he's not as bad as that goal has made him out to be.

C'mon, GO HABS GO!

fezworth said...

Avery gets an assist. I can live with the goal, but Avery getting a point? Unacceptable.

kristin said...

JARO!JARO!JARO! Please!

Rips it, scores! said...

Jesus, nearly another goal there from a Price error.

Better start warming up, Jaro.

kevincrumbs said...

Seeing Avery get hit was satisfiying. Dear Habs: JUST START SHOOTING THE FUCKING PUCK!

Rips it, scores! said...

STOP PISSBALLING AROUND WITH THE PUCK IN YOUR OWN DEFENSIVE ZONE YOU UTTER UTTER WANKERS.

Daniel Plainview said...

this game is fucked.

HabsFan29 said...

it's only 9-1 in shots this period. we're still in it!

Daniel Plainview said...

Pleks is seriously making me wish we'd kept Josef Balej instead.

HabsFan29 said...

nightmare

kevincrumbs said...

FUUUUCCCCCCKKKKK
FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCK

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DON'T SHOOT THE FUCKING PUCK, YOU STUPID, STUPID OVERPAID FUCKS

Rips it, scores! said...

Goodnight and good luck.

kristin said...

Don't make me keep saying Jaro.

Daniel Plainview said...

fuck that fat fuck Drury

Jaybird said...

This is by far tyhe worst reffed game all year. How many times can you crosscheck someone in the back and get away with it? Fuck...3-1 now

kevincrumbs said...

Come on, let's cash in on the PP.

kristin said...

Oh great, a power play. That'll really get things going....

kevincrumbs said...

@Jaybird: Yeah, I noticed that too. Apparently they only call it if you're checked from behind into the boards now.

kristin said...

SHOOOOOTTHEFUCKINGPUCKYOUMOTHERFUCKERS!SHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!

Rips it, scores! said...

*sings*

It's beginning to look a lot like Shitmas(*)


(*) Shitmas last fell on March 2007.

kevincrumbs said...

@kristin: That's the spirit!

God, this year is a looking a lot like uh... 06/07 where we completely choke during a late season visit to New York.

FUCK THIS SHIT

Rips it, scores! said...

Habs fan comes home from work and learns of the score, reacts accordingly.

kevincrumbs said...

Rhino on the PK. Now that's a sight that makes you feel good!

orangeman said...

Is the game over yet? I've never been a believer in Jesus Price, and it seems like he's going to cost us the season (again). Well, it's better to have your heart broken with so little hope in it, then to get worked up and be let down later.

RIP Habs 2008-2009 season.

kristin said...

I dunno Rips it...he doesn't seem quite suicidal enough.

chris nilan said...

i fucking give up

ver word - nestie - as in fuck this game, this team, this season... i'm going to drink a nestie

South Shore Habs Fan said...

Fucking hell.


Word verification: "sorerne", as in "if I had my way, the Habs' asses would be sorer'ne hell right now."


Fucking ZombieLine being a zombielike. Fucking top line being old and fagged from last night. Fucking defense that has no depth whatsoever, despite the ridiculous number of defensemen Gainey has hoarded over the past 2 years. Can we not find one freakin' Dman who can make a decent pass, or shoot the fucking puck without hitting someone's shin?

Fuck. At this point I'll settle for a defenseman who is capable of staying on his fucking skates.

Moey said...

Does anyone here think for a second that we'll beat Pittsburg or Boston...and even if by some miracle we sneak into the first round, we're done in four.

kristin said...

I don't have to finish watching this, right?

too close to toronto said...

bob is getting grossly outcoached tonight.

word verification: frite. you're goddamned right this game is fritening.

kevincrumbs said...

I forgot to mention that I hate Carolina.

@moey: I don't care if they get swept in the first round, I just want to see them make it. I want to feel a brief (and misguided) spring optimism that we'll make an unlikely run like the Oilers did a couple of years ago.

Regardless of whatever significance the game may or may not have on Saturday night, I'm looking forward to booing the fuck out of fucking Ryan O'Fucking Byrne.

Rips it, scores! said...

@kristin: Fuck no. I'm probably off myself, it's nearly 2 AM here.


Ottawa leading the Bruins 3-1. They should be suitable pissed off for Thursday's encounter.

Word verif = cabla, as in "Fuck this useless bunch of fannies, fuck them right in their stupid faces".

kevincrumbs said...

Great stick save by Price.

lawyergirl77 said...

My PVR just caught up to the "game".

WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS SHIT???????

Pleky wasn't playing that badly for the first few minutes, but then a few plays don't go his way and h'es fucked.

And don't get me started on Price.

Our problem? No sustained offensive pressure, because we can't get that first pass out of our zone.

And whose responsibility was that?

Oh.

Right.

FUCK.

kevincrumbs said...

Horrible start to the period. I sound like a broken record but there is absolutely no sustained offensive zone pressure.

Rips it, scores! said...

The Rangers have this in the bag.

Prove me wrong guys.

Daniel Plainview said...

I think I will go back to watching those Millenium dvds my sister lent me. there's so much more hope in those.

South Shore Habs Fan said...

Quoth the New York play-by-play guys:

"I have to tell you, some of these hits on Avery are questionable..."


...!

Daniel Plainview said...

remember how good we all felt when we beat toronto 6-2 and Boob assured us that Markov and Schneider were ok?

lostinleafland said...

doesn't look like the detox program worked for Price? fuckin' boozer

kristin said...

@Rips it...thanks for letting me off the hook, but since I'm a masochist I can't look away.

Seriously though...I have to watch 13 more minutes of this disaster?

lostinleafland said...

is O'burned Again the best we have in Hamilton? fuck me, he looks totally lost out there.

kevincrumbs said...

I've never cheered for the Flyers but I'm glad they're up 2-1 against Florida.

The Plex line is in the dictionary next to the entry for "invisible". Oh and also next to the one for "useless".

Daniel Plainview said...

fuck the Garth Brooks mask

kristin said...

Will this game ever end?

lawyergirl77 said...

Fuck this, can I just go to bed?

lostinleafland said...

I think "Carey me to the bar" is humming a few Garth Brook tunes right now,,'shameless' comes to mind?

kevincrumbs said...

Signs of life here.

Daniel Plainview said...

Ah-ha-ha. Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?

lawyergirl77 said...

Mr. Lg77 just went to bed. I say that if this is one of the last hockey games of the season for us, then dammit, i'm going to watch every painful minute of it.

NO SUSTAINED OFFENSIVE PRESSURE. Dammit, markov, I'm sorry I ever ragged on you...

lawyergirl77 said...

You just know that Pleks is going to have a MONSTER year somewhere else next year. Sigh.

HabsFan29 said...

plenty of time people

lostinleafland said...

Is Pleks still playing, I thought he retired?

Daniel Plainview said...

whats going on in the florida game?

Rips it, scores! said...

Why am I still watching this.

The perfect end to a thoroughly miserable day, a day which proved that my country is pretty much fucked for the next decade. Sorry for going off topic but I need to say something, and this team is NOT helping.

Rips it, scores! said...

@ Plainview: 2-1 Philly.

Daniel Plainview said...

I'm so glad I have this shit on mute and I am blasting the stereo so I don't have to hear that fucktard Bergeron speak. fucktastic.

lawyergirl77 said...

Rips, I had a pretty shittastic day too. And the poop on the ice ain't helping.

FUCK JANIK FUCK - STUPID FUCKING PENALTY. Somewhat on the bullshit side when you consider the rest of the clutching and grabbing, mais bon.

kevincrumbs said...

@Rips: You're in Ireland, right? Or am I completely crazy here?

Come on, time for a SH goal by ZombiePleks.

Jaybird said...

WORST FUCKING REFFING EVER!!!! I never complain about single games, usually just how the league is the beer league of bad officiating...thanks Buttman and Colon Campbell!

AVERY CAN HI - STICK NOW!! YEAH HE CAN!belin

orangeman said...

Stopped following this mess and started following Panthers/Flyers game. This is the reality of being a Habs fan: Praying other teams are worse than yours. As a Habs fan I spend more time booing other teams than I do cheering mine. What a sad existence.

Daniel Plainview said...

FUCK YOU DOUG JANIK YOU CUNT
BUT SERIOUSLY FUCK THE REFS FOR ALL THOSE MISSED FUCKING CUNT CALLS.


rips it, what country do you live in?

Daniel Plainview said...

I told someone at work to stop being so dramatic and she freaked the fuck out thus proving my point. hardly shitastic.

lostinleafland said...

shit fuck shit.
From Saturday's high to this crap. uughhh..fuck

lawyergirl77 said...

TWO POSTS IN THE 3RD PERIOD!!!! arrrrrrrrrrrgh!!!!!!!

Rips it, scores! said...

@LG77: At least we have the Habs to cheer us up, right? heh...... :-/

@kevincrumbs: Yep, I'm Irish. Long story short (which you didn't ask for, I know - sorry), our government is broken, we're close to 13% unemployment (and rising) and we are borrowing way above our means as a nation. Oh, and the government that caused much of this mess will be in power until 2012.


On the basis of this game, the Habs haven't a prayer in their last 2 games. We have to hope that either the Rangers or Florida fuck up their last 2 games.

lawyergirl77 said...

Okay, WTF is wrong with me - I've spent the entire day as a sniveling mess and now the ping off of Koivu's missed goal is making a tear roll down my cheek.

As is Breezer's inability to keep the puck in the o-zone.

fuck.

Daniel Plainview said...

we had great expectations, we had the greatest expectations...

I would've punched Biron in the face myself if he had let that go in.

Well, what was about as enjoyable as a frontal lobotomy sans anaesthetic.

Cheers for gifting the Rags the win, Komi & Price. The rest of you fucks weren't fantastic either.

No need for alarm, folks. It;s all part of the Habs master plan to tank and avoid the Devils in the first round. Genius move.

Just fucking great.

Optimism: 0 at this point.



Word verification: "oublei". What I intend to do about this whole fucking season as of Saturday.

Tampa Bay is within one goal against Pittsburgh with around 10 minutes to go. Come on, Marty!

@Rips: Yeah, I've read some articles on the situation. Doesn't sound good at all. Sorry to hear.

Ah, the NHL, blatantly trying to put the Pens in the playoffs. Interference on their 5th goal. Pens 5, Bolts 3.

Outshot 44-25 in an extremely important game at the end of the season against a fading foe. There's heart and passion!

Blame the loss of Markov and Schneider all you like (and I like it very much), but what was the excuse when they couldn't buy a win (or 20+ shots) for almost 2 months not that long ago? They had a chance to put themselves in a position not to worry, but they decided to fuck off for 7 weeks.

Message to BG: Price is NOT going to save this team. Give it up.

@kevin: the NHL has been doing it's best all season to hand games to NYR, Pens and for some reason the Canes. Watch any of these teams regularly and you'll see the proof. The NHL is a business afterall.

Veri word: Disco.
As in "Fuck this shit. Let's Disco!"

Hey kids, just got back from a meeting with my divorce lawyer, what did I miss? Should I watch RDSexpress?

@moeman: If you're a masocist, then yes. If you have an ounce of dignity, then no. Up to you.

disclaimer: I didn't see the game, but I can't imagine it's worth my time.
