TFS looks to conquer Philly - game preview and open thread

So the big pre-Olympic break finish is upon us. A home and home with the Flyers. If one game in the East clusterf*** would be called a 4-point game, would we not have to call this an 8-point home and home? F*** me, lawyers s*** at math. Either way, these two games will go a very long way to deciding how we think about this team while we watch Team Canada lose the bronze medal game to the Slovaks (a Jaro shutout, thanks to the power of chocolate milk).

Waiting in line for a cheesesteak details - 6 PM from the Wachovia Center. 6 PM? WT*? I guess they want to finish on time for us to watch the opening ceremonies. Habs have actually won 6 straight (regular season) in Philly. Again, WT*? Habs coming off the Miracle on de la Montagne, while the Flyers are coming off sweeping a home and home from the Devils. Habs won the only meeting so far, 3-1, in a game where all 3 of our goal scorers - Squid, Big ***s and the Urologist - won't be in the lineup tonight.

Ready to rumble - Ryan and Fran do great work over at Flyers Goal Scored By...

Hot like the Eagles Cheerleaders - Pleks with 4G 4A over his last 6 games. Gomez 6 points in his last 4. Props to Little ***s and his 3 ***ists against the Caps, maybe the best game he's ever played. For the Phlyers, Jeff Carter has a goal in each of the last 2 games, Pronger has 3 points over that span, Gagné a point per game over his last 6, and Michael Leighton has played well between the stripper poles lately.

Cold like a brew from the Philadelphia Brewing Co. - after the Miracle, let's say no one. Though the Faceoff preview numbers say both Jaro and TFS are cold. I guess the TSN guys know what they're talking about, right? For the Phlyers, Brière and Richards both a measly single point in their last 4.

Injured like when BobBY Clarke hacked you in the back of the leg - oy, I don't even know where to start here. Apparently both Vodkov and Gorges are game-time decisions. The Subway Foot Long will be there in case one of them can't go. Dominic Moore will wear #42, and should be in the lineup. In case you have forgotten, our other injured are: Squid, Urologist, Big ***s, CHicken, Mara.

Post-game adult entertainment establishment - head over to Christine's Cabaret and Steakhouse for some meat, and uh, meat. You know, for all the strip clubs we have in Montreal, do we have one where I can get a decent steak? No. I feel this is a real business opportunity.

All hockey and opening ceremony comments welcome

A tuna steak?

kevincrumbs said...

Maybe Gibby's could be persuaded to have strippers.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Boob
Wow. I can't think of a less inviting marketing pitch.... and I'm married to a gyno so there isn't a vagina joke I haven't made... never mind.

GoldenGirl11 said...

Sorry, I meant ****** joke.

soperman said...

I hope that Price uses more appropriate gloves that in GG11's photo.

Gino Tomac said...

@GG11
Boone is watching the game from your place tonight?

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Gino
yup

HabsFan29 said...

@Gino - that's why this post is family-friendly, in honour of the moment.

well, except for the link to the strip club

Gino Tomac said...

Can you keep a running count of the amount of alcohol he consumes for us tonight?

Also, can you please ask him how many "Jack Todd eats ****" he's ever read on a stall door in the Montreal Gazette Mens bathroom...
Thanks,
Gino

Gino Tomac said...

And finally GG11.
Does your husband ever frame photos of his best work?


Too easy...

HabsFan29 said...

the Twitters are freaking out with the new that the Frolov deal is done. maybe

Habsfan10 said...

@GG11:

Tell Boone to punch Jack Todd in the mouth for me.

hfotwc said...

@29. is it where you're going for dinner tonight, cause you're going out right, c'mon man.

wv forses, let's forses 29ses to goeses outs forses dinnerses, causes we needses to winses the ***ses gameses

GoldenGirl11 said...

@10
I already did but it was for me.

Habsfan10 said...

@ GG11:

Tell him again.

RiRi said...

BGL is a politician now!

hfotwc said...

f*** J*** T***

K-Mart said...

I've been looking forward to this game! The Flyers seem to struggle against any team with a pulse, so I'm trying not to get excited about the Devils wins until we show that we can consistently beat playoff caliber teams. Beating Montreal twice this weekend would go a long way for us...

bea.habs.fan said...

if HF29 goe sout for steak I promise to come and strip for him.


that's how bad I want this win

orangeman said...

Orangeman here, reporting live from Central Ontario. I'm happy to report that the Leafs still s***, Canada's still cold and Timmy's bagels are still delicious. I look forward to watching the game tonight when it is dark outside with whiskey in my hand (only one of those is available when I'm watching at work in Korea). I might not be able to post during the game because I'll actually have live company with me. I don't need you people anymore. Go Habs Go, and I can't wait to see Terry Fox's hologram light the cauldron (god willing).

orangeman said...

I should mention that the last game I got to watch in Canada involved a comeback agaist a New York area team. Just sayin'.

moeman said...

Not gonna be around kids. I'll parody tomorrow's game. Instead of me here's something for the censors.

moeman said...

R.I.P. to the young Georgian athlete. Too soon, so sad. Condolences.

HabsFan29 said...

welcome home orangeman, eh

have a great night moe. i'll cover for you. BECAUSE IM WATCHING THE WHOLE GAME AND NOT GOING OUT FOR DINNER!!!!

and i agree - condolences to the family of the luger. terribly tragic

moeman said...

Merci 29 and please, please let it be Terry Fox's image/legacy that lights up the world tonight.

Go Pants!

Go Habs!!

Go Canada!!!

kevincrumbs said...

Man, just got back from class, bummed out to see no Frolov acquisition. Boring faux trade deadline day.

foo said...

OK Here's the deal. You guys have to take a tie with us into OT so we can all keep the dipwad Broons, dumbwad Tampon Bolts and richwad Rags out of the playoffs. Let's do this thing together two nights in a row. We Flyers can take an OT loss or even 2. Our spectacular goalie tandem will lead us to the promised land (another short playoff run.)

HabsFan29 said...

whew. just made it home in time. this 6 pm start really f***s with my normal get drunk on friday afternoon schedule

GO YOU F***ING PANTS

HabsFan29 said...

TFS 2.80 and .911. that's really pretty good, TSN f***tards

HabsFan29 said...

ooh Pleks

bea.habs.fan said...

are any of the usual FHF contributors here tonite?

I'm goign to feel obliged to make pithy comments laced with swear words !

HabsFan29 said...

im here bea. we'll fucking swear together

bea.habs.fan said...

no Markov but a subbanator

HabsFan29 said...

PING

HabsFan29 said...

Aaron Asham. there's a name from our past

bea.habs.fan said...

I'm goign to have to type fast.
f***in typos to be expected

HabsFan29 said...

just to hear "Subban" makes me happy

K-Mart said...

@foo- The Flyers need all the points they can get right now. So I would prefer not to lose in OT :)

HabsFan29 said...

good reffing. WT*?

bea.habs.fan said...

what's up with Hartnell and his hair.
what a douche

there's only 2 players per team playing.
f***in incredible

K-Mart said...

That was an interesting sequence... how was there no whistle on that?

HabsFan29 said...

jebus, Carey

HabsFan29 said...

WOW CAREY

bea.habs.fan said...

RDS morons filling up time by somehow linking blizzards with the weird fight

YEAH PRICE

bea.habs.fan said...

Lil **** gets sandwitched = Flyerogram

HabsFan29 said...

Carey saves our asses again

we are being dominated

chris nilan said...

just turned it on... is it all price so far?

Ronan said...

The refs DO know that you're not allowed to hit people from behind, yeah?

HabsFan29 said...

@knuckles- pretty much. some Pleks too, but thats about it

HabsFan29 said...

sooBAN Alain, not Soobin

HabsFan29 said...

Subway foot long working the point. nice

bea.habs.fan said...

good shift by PK

Boob Gainey said...

I only saw Subban play that last shift - but I like him already.

bea.habs.fan said...

I must be dense I don't get the foot lomg bit

HabsFan29 said...

Subban = Subway and Subway has a foot long sub. it's dumb, no worries

bea.habs.fan said...

so no real connection. just wishful thinking.
I'm guessing it's a guy thing.

let's hope it's not a fish story

chris nilan said...

JM - "welcome to the nhl PK..."

PK - "thank you so much jaques... i'm very excited to get goin.... who am i playing with?"

JM - "that would be hal gill"

PK - "f**k"

bea.habs.fan said...

AAARRRGGGHHHHH
come on
golaie interference, right?

HabsFan29 said...

FUCK

Ronan said...

What the FUCK was that?!

HabsFan29 said...

no review?

HabsFan29 said...

this is not going well

Ronan said...

No, seriously, what the fuck is this shit? Is this going to be another 11-penalty Hurricanes game?

hfotwc said...

f***kin w**ale was fl**pin' ar**nd.

another pp.f********ck

Ronan said...

Cari the fat wale got harpooned pretty good on that goal.

kevincrumbs said...

This shit is fucking boring. Good job by the defensemen to just let Cari the Fat Wale get run all night long.

matt - ftc said...

The NHL is hard to take sometimes. Hartnell clearly harpooned Price out of the way...

hfotwc said...

Fr****s Ga***n predicting Russia win gold. F*** him

Ren***t Lav***e, Canada 4th. F***

Boob Gainey said...

Goalie interference.

Kmaxx said...

OK ...so some fuckwit on RDS named Renaud(?) picks Canada to end up 4th in the Olympics - WTF?? Who the fuck is he then?

btw - I'm liking the Subanator (sp?) very much so far

bea.habs.fan said...

Renaud's hair is more interesting than his comments and more a propos

bea.habs.fan said...

HF29 it's not too late for you to go out for dinner

GoldenGirl11 said...

Bea, you're killin'. Killin' I tell ya.

orangeman said...

Checking in here. I missed the first due to obligatory baby niece videos. Looks like I made the right choice. Condolences to the luger's family, too. What a crappy way to start this party.

matt - ftc said...

Renaud is just bitter that there is no Team Quebec.

Kmaxx said...

RDS Intermission interview with PK - "I've benn dreaming about this day since I put on skates"...Now that is the kind of fucking attitude we need to see more of! OMG I love this fucking guy!!

HabsFan29 said...

if you check the preview closely, i also have Team Canada finishing fourth

kill me

bea.habs.fan said...

@ GG11 I'm trying to hold up the estrogen side tonite.
thankk God not too much testosterone around.

read that boone is enjoying his whisky

HabsFan29 said...

aw crap

bea.habs.fan said...

FUCK

Boob Gainey said...

Carey the sieve.

Memories of the 2008 playoffs.

kevincrumbs said...

Jesus, get the fucking put out of the zone.

kevincrumbs said...

By put I mean puck. This game is boring me to sleep.

HabsFan29 said...

bad to worse

kevincrumbs said...

See? This is what happens when the puck spends the whole fucking period in your zone.

Boob Gainey said...

Did O'Byrne have to do that?

GoldenGirl11 said...

If HI/O goes on to read like jibberish it's DrGG's fault.

Kmaxx said...

Not to beat a dead horse but Price should have had both of those...fuck!!!!

bea.hab.fan said...

this is what happens when HF29 does not listen and refuses to eat his dinner.

no more strippers if you don't eat your supper outside!

kevincrumbs said...

What chance did Carey have on the third goal off of a Rhino deflection?

orangeman said...

get Carey out of there. Why is he even there after last game? Come to think of it, why was he even there last game? There comes a point where you have to think about today instead of some undefined "future", especially after 3 years of this garbage.

orangeman said...

And that's my angry rant about Carey. Now on to the rest of the useless bafoons out there.

HabsFan29 said...

carey is not at fault. no one showed up except the Subbanator

bea.habs.fan said...

Hey PK, welcome to your modern day HABS

orangeman said...

Fine, Carey is innocent. I've only seen a few minutes tonight, but they look terrible. How can they have a game like the one agaist the Caps and then follow that up with this?

kevincrumbs said...

Not to get all HIO here but you people want Jaro to play both games of a back to back because of a Rhino deflected goal and a borderline goalie interference goal? Like HF29 said, the rest of the fucking team has been fucking shit. Seven fucking shots on goal, people, seven!

chris nilan said...

interfered with on the first goal.

i didn't catch the 2nd.

obyrne deflection on the 3rd.

yeah this is all prices fault.

by the way they showed the footage of the georgian luger crash on ctv. cringe worthy. why the fuck would they show that?

kevincrumbs said...

Blair Betts is an odd looking fellow.

matt - ftc said...

Like usualy...any positive momentum created by a win comes to a crashing halt once the boys run into a physical team.

Tell me again why the fuck we got Moore?? As if we don't already have half a team full of the exact same type of player...

kevincrumbs said...

Great, pass the puck around for a minute and then get your shot blocked.

bea.habs.fan said...

what a waste of a PP

kevincrumbs said...

Great, back onto the PK. Maybe they should forfeit the rest of the game, pack up and go home.

Anonymous said...

Who is this Mad Cow person on the ice?

orangeman said...

Hey, I took back my Price bashing! I don't think Jaro should play back to back but I'm definitely a Jaro guy myself, if only for the FHF posts.

Kmaxx said...

Fuck...we're just over half way through the second and I'm slaughtered (these Friday night games really mess with my system)...still, it's easier to watch this miserable lot this way...did you now that the french commercials can be pretty fuckin' funny given the right amount of red wine...?

HabsFan29 said...

good news everyone!

im drunk. 3 bloody caesars at the Friday cocktail hour at the office and 4 Dogfish Head IPA's since ive been home. god bless alcohol.

Kmaxx said...

Apart from Price...has any Hab touched the puck in the last 5 minutes?

orangeman said...

Gee, 29, you might want to go out to dinner to, uh, sober up.

bea.habs.fan said...

I second orangeman!
HF29 you really need to eat something

kevincrumbs said...

HF29: Four Dogfish Head IPAs on top of three Bloody Caesars? How are you managing to type?

kevincrumbs said...

Great save by the Phat Whale.

HabsFan29 said...

tyyyppe?

Kmaxx said...

WTF - 29 ...I thought you were banned from watching any more games until we had a playoff spot clinched...?

HabsFan29 said...

i hate when Benny says "oy-yoy-yoy"

kevincrumbs said...

Wow, a delay of game that's actually not on us for once.

Kmaxx said...

Oh Fuck - Do we lead the league in "Delay of Game" penalties yet?

Kmaxx said...

ooops...sorry - I heard the call then automatically assummed it was on us...my bad!

kevincrumbs said...

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

bea.habs.fan said...

what a waste of a period\game
except for PK

Bill 101 said...

fucking Flyers. there, I said it.

the internet is SO liberating

If Pronger scores, I'm going to have to say fuck again

wv "whaeru" Oh team that beat the Caps, whaeru??

Ronan said...

It made me so sad to see PK just standing there, wide open, ready to shoot... and the Mexican passes below the goal line. Poor kid.

oreangeman said...

Just reminding everyone that the last game I saw in Canada involved an impossible comeback against the Rangers. It could happen ag....sorry, I can't in good conscience finish that sentiment.

Hope the opening ceremonies are awesome cause I'm going to need to wake up after this crap. Sorry, c***.

hfotwc said...

a McSploogian Bruny; oh,yoy,yoy, what a monster!

There is still time for you to go out for dinner 29.

kmaxx said...

OK - Last Rant of the night for me...WTF - 7 shots in the 2nd and 6 in the first - what kind of shitg is that?! You won't ever win shit with 13 shots in 2 periods - in February for Christ sakes! Come on! You are collectively getting something lie $50M a year in salary - FOR 13 SHOTS! There is a fantastic English expression I've learned to love..."Stop Taking the Piss" - says it all as far as I'm concerned. When the fuckwits on RDS show you a slo mo replay that clearly shows how shit you are playing - you know you are playing shit!

Kmaxx said...

Sorry - but I might need more red wine - the thrid period has not even started yet...Go Habs Go! (?)

HabsFan29 said...

Jennifer Hedger looking good on the TSN Olympic pre-game

Bill 101 said...

Slo-mo Scott Hartnell hair almost scoring on ... who's in goal tonight?

creepy or what?

WV leciti. On the west coat, leciti is rocking tonight

Kmaxx said...

Those three pompus fucks on RDS are starting to piss meoff...then again - it might be the Merlot?


wv -CUSINGS - I be cusings those fuckin Flyers if we can't at least get a shootout out of this...

HabsFan29 said...

BIG COMEBACK!!!

/still drunk

orangeman said...

The comeback begins! 29, did you happen to run out to the dep?

Ronan said...

How about that - we let Subban have a little fun and the Habs score. HMMMMM.

HabsFan29 said...

Moore!!!!!!

im sobering up

bea.habs.fan said...

we have a point and I missed it !!!!!!

wait 2 ??????

chris nilan said...

@29 - NO KEEP DRINKING!!!!!!!!!!

HabsFan29 said...

oh, Subway

orangeman said...

Unrelated, I think muchmusic just pissed off CTV with live body shots and undressing in hot tubs. Controversy not involving goalies!

kevincrumbs said...

Hm. Habs scored two goals since I stopped watching. I think I'm staying away for the remainder of the game.

HabsFan29 said...

momentum. dead.

bea.habs.fan said...

F***************

bea.habs.fan said...

is PK a PK guy?

HabsFan29 said...

JESUS F****** CHRIST HOW MANY PENALTIES???

bea.habs.fan said...

oh for crying out loud

orangeman said...

I just saw the replay out of the corner of my eye, but how was that not interference?

HabsFan29 said...

momentum. back?

HabsFan29 said...

TFS there when we need him. GO YOU F****** PANTS

did i mention i hope to go out to dinner soon?

HabsFan29 said...

hfotwc said...

HabsFan29 said...

HOW IS THAT NOT INTERFERENCE???

Bill 101 said...

Tabernac

habsss said...

Booing an injured player as he leaves the ice, stay classy Flyers fans.

HabsFan29 said...

@o'man - true

kmaxx said...

Sorry ...last rant - Where the fuck was Gomez's passion during the game? Nt worth a hell of a lot atfer the final whistle is it?

RiRi said...

Just got in and watched the last 10 mins... I was hoping Subban would beat the shit out of Leighton.

kevincrumbs said...

So from what I read, Jaro Spacek is injured now?

Ronan said...

Habs must be on a first-name basis with the MDs by this point..

bea.habs.fan said...

@kc,

teeth first in the glass behind his net

kevincrumbs said...

Jesus.

bea.habs.fan said...

yet another walking wounded for our collection

`Kay, now I`m mad. D`Agostini played 4 1/2 g*dd*** minutes, had no shots and was -1... How much more useless do you have to be to be sent to the pressbox or traded the f*** away?

/end rant.

On a more positive note, from what I saw, the Subbanator was pretty good! There is hope for the future(meh... barely)!!!

Also, I thought Subway was Metro`s nickname?

hfotwc said...

I was gonna bitch and swear after the game, but the Opening Ceremony is bringing world peace inside me. Very touching moment when Georgia walked in the stadium.

Number31 said...

Number 42 eh. Is Dominic Moore the meaning of life?

I'm so sick of NHL refs.
