Classic Albums Presents Bon Kovy New Jersey - Game Preview and Open Thread

Running out of Jersey cliches, Habs versus Devils, Parise/Kovalchuk/Brodeur vs Gomez/Pleks/Markov blah blah blah 7:00 at the Bell Centre. Let's get to the music! (Apologies to moeman, 29, and the hairmetal stylings of one Mr. John Francis Bongiovi, Jr.)

"Born To Be Our Goalie"

Your dad was a goalie back in the day
Took up photography 'cause of bills to pay
Now you're the French goalie that got away
Our love, our Cups

Wish back then they'd drafted you with pride
Wouldn't need a good offence with you on our side
Without you our Cup hopes fade and die
Our dreams, our pride

You beat the Habs like a drum (all night)
Shut them out and score one (your play is airtight)
And I'll never let go cause
There's something I know deep inside

You were born to be our goalie
And Marty, we were made to be your fans
Coulda had something to believe in
Even if we don't know where we stand
Only God would know the seasons
We could have had if you had been the man
Cause you were born to be our goalie
And Marty, we were made to be your fans

Win two Cups, blow the world away
Two Olympic golds also on your tray
You ain't fancy, Marty that's OK
Your time, your way

When your team keeps it close better hang on tight
Buckle up, Marty, it's a bumpy ride
Habs are fighting for their playoff life
Our world, our fight

If the Habs play real hard (all night)
There's a chance they'll get by (and it's alright)
And I'll know that you'll be fine
In my heart till the day that I die

Cause you were born to be our goalie
And Marty, we were made to be your fans
Coulda had something to believe in
Even if we don't know where we stand
Only God would know the seasons
We could have had if you had been the man
Cause you were born to be our goalie
And Marty, we were made to be your fans

[Solo]

You beat the Habs like a drum (all night)
Shut them out and score one (your play is airtight)
And I'll never let go cause
There's something I know deep inside

Cause you were born to be our goalie
And Marty, we were made to be your fans
Coulda had something to believe in
Even if we don't know where we stand
Only God would know the seasons
We could have had if you had been the man

Cause you were born to be our goalie
And Marty, we were made to be your fans

You were born to be our goalie
And Marty, we were made to be your fans

Bon soir, Montreal! We love you!!!!!!

Raises Bic lighter to 10 and GG!

WV = hothump, as in, so close to hothumb

Jaybird said...

Speaking of lighters saw Billy Talent at Scotiabank last night. Great show!

As for tonight I can see us putting up a good one... NJ can`t win em all against us. Moen is my predicted hero although I can see some revenge against old team goals from Gio or Jose Tequila.

Predictions?

wv: Preading. NJ has been sucking and Preading the Habs teat for points for too long now.

That hair must've had it's own roadie.

I think Denis Brodeur is one of the coolest.

Habsfan10 said...

I'm totally calling Gomez Richie Sambora from now on. They could be twins.

Howard said...

Looking forward to going to the game tonight!

wv bundl: The Habs will score a bundl on Marty tonight!

boob gainey said...

What a collapse by the Flames. They lost 5-0 to the Bruins today, putting the playoffs essentially out of reach for them.

That's what you get for stacking your team with ex-Leafs.

Number31 said...

Lapierre and Darche Vader scratched tonight. RDS explosion in 5, 4, 3...

HabsFan29 said...

@N31 - RDS explodes no matter what. If Laps played better, he'd be in the lineup. it's a simple equation. btw, i hope your hamster and vacuum cleaner have reconciled

ok kids im going out to a party. it features dinner, so maybe that counts. be excellent to each other.

moeman said...

Won't be around until much later kidz but I'm dropping in to say;

Thank You Pat Burns for every thing you gave to hockey.

... and ...

Go you fucking Habs!

dwgs said...

Apparently the Habs didn't have an official representative at the dedication of the Stanstead rink to Burns. Not cool.

Number31 said...

If the Habs got the Devils in the playoffs, do we get free GO HABS GO pillows or snuggies instead of towels?

Number31 said...

2-on-1 between Pleks and Gorges? Mind = blown. Of course Gorges can't bury it.

Number31 said...

OK whatever that period was dull...

MISSING: POWER PLAY

Have you seen this PP? Often seen putting pucks in net, answers to "Shoot!". Very valuable to owner, has won blue ribbons in the past (though best days are behind her). Last seen before Olympics. If seen please contact:

Montreal Canadiens
(514) 790-2525

REWARD OFFERED ("No.1" goalie)

ezzeloharr said...

Maybe I'll go do homework now

boob gainey said...

AK46!

orangeman said...

WOOT!

boob gainey said...

During intermission they showed some clips from what appears to be a Don Cherry biopic.

It looks laughably bad.

orangeman said...

Are they affraid of not being down? Pathetic.

orangeman said...

Oh good, a PP!

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz...

b said...

Any word on CBC on how badly Metro is hurt? Nothing on RDS yet.

As for Darche & Lapierre, clearly they are being rested for the playoffs.

orangeman said...

That's right, you better make up for that shit.

b said...

Holy shit! A transversal pass and a goal.
What next, a shooter in the high slot?

copyranter said...

Fucking Zubrus, was a useless Hab.

b said...

Has English become the official soul language of the NHL referees?

Habsfan10 said...

Did everybody turn off their interwebs for Earth Hour? I thought wireless would be allowed.

orangeman said...

CJAD says Metro is gone with an upper body injury, not sure how severe yet, being checked out.

b said...

The Devils are intentionally stepping away from the coverage in front of the net on shots to double the screen. Smart.

Habsfan10 said...

This Earth Hour thing makes it hard to type and even harder to drink. I can't find the Duvel bottle to refill my glass.

ezzeloharr said...

HF10: It's a devils' game - everyone's asleep.

dwgs said...

Haven't heard anything on Metro but from the look of him going to the room I'd bet shoulder.

Number31 said...

Go away, Devils. Does sprinkling salt on them work?

orangeman said...

God I hope they don't meet the Devils in the first round. Not (just) because I don't think they have a chance, either.

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Number31 said...

Well that was odd... Sergei seemed to be the only one interested in trying to win a puck battle with the net empty... And Markov was just standing there instead of grabbing the stationnary puck.

Meh. I hope they get the Sabres for the playoffs...

CBC said Pleky and Kostitsyn had an off night? Maybe, but they scored the only goals for an off night.

b said...

First time ever that Le Canadien did not have a Quebecois forward in the line up. Wow.

Number31 said...

@b - Bergeron? He's really a forward who thinks he's a defenseman. (Though right now he's not really doing anything...)
