Giant Mexican MOEn comes home - Habs/Caps Game 6 preview and open thread


Well, well, well. Game 6. Whoda thunk it? Certainly not me and my forecast of doom in Friday's Game Day Skate. Yet here we are. At home sweet home for Game 6. Ah, the Bell Centre, where we always win in the playoffs, right? RIGHT?

So how did we get here? Sometime between Games 4 and 5, Count Chokula became a genius. Or more likely, a half hour before Game 5 he said "maybe I'll just do something stupid and go out with a bang." Either way, he decided to shove Travis MOEmaN onto a line with Gio and Gomez. Stanley Cup winners all. Moen went into the corners and crashed the net and did the dirty work. It paid off with his first goal of the playoffs and a Habs win. And the Giant Mexican MOEn was born.

[phone rings]
GMM: ¡Buenos dias! MOEn's Tavern, birthplace of the Rob Roy.
Ovie: OH HAI! Ovie likez to speak wit a Missuz Schorwit, first name Amanda?
GMM: Anyone here Amanda Schorwith? I'm looking for Amanda Schorwith!
Little Tits: No me! Andrei, MORE WODKA!
[assembled Habs laugh]
GMM: Look, you rotten little punk, if ever I run into you in the corner I'll shove a stick so far up that gap in your teeth you'll feel it in whatever it is in your head that substitutes for a brain.
Ovie: LULZ!!11!!!1!!

Sing along, kidz:

When the weight of the series has got you down
And you want to end your life,
Meth to buy, a dead-end job,
Carey's sleeping with your wife.
But don't wave stupid towels
'Cuz there's a line down at the Bell
That's gonna take our misery away...
It's G-M- MOEn.... (Let's all love the GM MOEn...)
When all our hope was lost (GM MOEn...)
Then JM's lines got crossed
Now Game seven's just a GM MOEn away
Game seven is just a GM MOEn away...


So let's do this thing! Anthem-booing at 7 PM at the Bell, where Montreal has lost 6 straight in the playoffs. Squid, Ovie, and Backstrom are hot. CHicken and Semin are not. We assume Jaro starts and Jaro 2.0 is still half-dead. And since The Urologist and Hamr both suck, the Habs have... (drum roll, please) called up the Subbanator! While this is very exciting, I also fear that it could be a disaster waiting to happen, shoving PK into the lion's den. I'm a pessimist, as you know. But what the hell, might as well go out swinging. However this may be a moot point as he is not necessarily playing. JM says he's a game-time decision, depending on Jaro 2.0's health. So we'll see. Also, The Mexican was not on the ice for TMS. Hmm, this whole preview may have been for naught.

OK that's enough from me. I gotta go 'cause I've got a hot date tonight. A date. Dinner with friends. Dinner alone. Watching TV alone. Alright, I'm just going to sit at home and ogle the ladies in the Victoria's Secret catalog. Sears catalog.

Go you fucking pants!

another awesome pic GG. Go you fucking Habs!

WV = gotCHic

Habsfan10 said...

Flaming MOENS for everyone! Aerosmith comes on at 10, if Mrs Crabapple lets Joey Kramer have his drumsticks back.

b said...

Instead of Giant Mexican ... the line should be Go Mo Gio or to put it into movie speak Go Mojo.

wv= neuro

Oh what we could do with that one. We'll have to deal with it surgically

kevincrumbs said...

Go Habs Go.

Subbanator should play. It's not like he could do any worse than Hamr or the Urologist.

RiRi said...

Awesome pic, GG!

PK didn't come all the way here to sit in the pressbox. There's.a reason the Urologist was pissed in his interviews this morning. It's like he knows he's headed for Panger's trunk.


"Nobody puts PK in a corner"

Go You Fucking Habs Go!!!

L Dude said...

Hey RiRi, is that a Mary Brown's reference? Saw a billboard last week: Nobody puts Mary in a bucket. No? But maybe we put our Chicken in Panger's trunk (if there's room with MAB and/or Hamr).
Hope Panger's driving a '76 Caddie.

Maybe it's just me, but I think the nickname Subbanator is dumb. Makes no sense. The Dominator made sense. When your name is PK, do you need another nickname?
Isn't it enough that PeeKay is subban' in for Spacek?
IF PK makes it into the lineup, be sure to stay out of McSplooge's line of fire - I expect premature "incredulation". My new least favourite McSploogism: The "Care Factor". Fuck off. That's right up there with WestJet's new Care-a-fuck-in-tee! Instant channel changer that shit commercial is!
/venting

!OG SBAH OG (mixing up the cheer for luck).

And everybody should try a Moscow Mule tonight.

HabsFan29 said...

good venting L Dude

just got back from an excellent lunch with the following folks: LG77, GG11, Panger, and Mrs. Panger. We didn't discuss hockey at all.

lawyergirl77 said...

L Dude - legend has it that PK gave himself that nickname at his first WJC or something like that.

Lunch was great. Wine was better. Company was bestest of all.

Actually, scratch that. That pic is the most win you can have on a game day thread.

GO YOU FUCKING HABS GO!!!

Habsfan10 said...

@ L Dude,

I also dislike "The Subbanator" as a nickname, but my choice of PK "F'n" Subban continues to fall on deaf ears. I would also accept "Effing" or "Fucking" but nobody seems to be on board.

RiRi said...

@L Dude - It's a "Dirty Dancing" reference: "Nobody puts Baby in a corner". Yup, I'm cheesy like that.

lawyergirl77 said...

RiRi - I carried a watermelon. I'm always carrying the watermelon.

Patrick Swayze is hot, yo. Refuse to believe he's dead.

RiRi said...

@10 - I read your comment fast and all I saw was PFK. He could be CHicken's best friend. Or enemy. Depending on you feel about PETA.

Poultry aside, I vote for PK Fucking Subban.

lawyergirl77 said...

I vote for "PK Fucking Subban, Bitches".

Has a nice ring to it, no?

(Although, PFK killed me dead as a potential alternate nickname...)

Ronan said...

The Colonel!

soperman said...

Whatever you call him, PK's going to be hot. Poor Ovie will wish he was back at the strip club.

L Dude said...

@RiRi: Shockingly, I have not seen Dirty Dancing. I'm not afraid to say I liked Swayze also. That A&E series he did just before he left for his current project......Ghost 2....it was great. And Red Dawn. Who can forget that? He has an ugly(er?) brother who always plays a bad guy. He could fill in and continue that A&E series.
Anyway, perhaps Mary Brown Fried Chicken (you have that in Quebec?) stole the line from Dirty Dancing, while dissing KFC. Good stuff whatever the reasoning.

Care-antee. Fuck me. That pisses me off. Fuck I hate that commercial. Now I can't stop thinking about it and associating it with McSplooge.

PK Fucking Subban!

kevincrumbs said...

I don't know, you might be onto something with PFK, Riri.

I agree with Ronan, I like the Colonel.

lawyergirl77 said...

PFK Subban, perhaps? As in Pernell Fuckin' Kane Subban? that would work, no?

RiRi said...

@LG -"Oh, come on, ladies. God wouldn't have given you maracas if He didn't want you to shake 'em". Hear that, Big Tits?
So sad about Patrick Schwayze.

Heh @ Ronan.

GoldenGirl11 said...

The lunch bunch decided that everyone going to the game tonight needs to lose the red shirt and wear black face and an Afro wig instead. Apparently PK F'ing Subban loved it the first time around.

Bill 101 said...

Carey glarin' from the bench in an afro... I like.

Mr Trivia said...

@LG77 - PFK is dope. I'm sold.


Hope to see some fucking magic tonight. Here's to the mexican, Giant, squid, Pleks, Pouliot, Moen, PFK, Metro, Markov, Gill, Halak, Lapierre, Moore, Uro, Hamr, Gorges, AK46, Pyatt, and O'Byrne having HUGE games. too much to ask?

just fucking do it boys.

Mr Trivia said...

edit: @riri. shit.

Moey said...

True story. A few years ago a friend and I were standing at the valet parking outside of Spagos in Beverly Hills. A big 'ol Hummer drives up, parks halfway on the sidewalk. I say to my friend, "what an asshole" loud enough that he hears me. The guy walks by us, nods and says "evening ladies" then goes into the restaurant. My friend turns to me and says "that asshole was Patrick Swayze." We ended up sitting at the next table to him. Oy vay...

RiRi said...

@L Dude - Shockingly, I've never see Ghost? What am I missing? Also, I don't think I've ever seen a Mary Brown's around these parts. Again, what am I missing?

PFK Subban FTW!!!

Tyg said...

Ghost is worth the watching, which is not the case with 99% of movies today. Mary Brown's is awesome chicken. Much better than KFC.

I like PFK too.

moeman said...

PFucK!

bea.habs.fan said...

getting in late on the discussion, what with work getting in the way of hockey blogging.

who will partner PFK (my vote too) tonite?

I'm not sure about watching the game tonight as they seem to play better when I'm busy elsewhere than when I'm glued to the TV.
BUT HOW CAN I MISS THE CHANCE TO SEE PFK!!!!!!!

WC pqqco????? - how do I get always stuck with the weirdest unspellable words. I feel like a stutterer. no wonder I have to press submit at least twice

lawyergirl77 said...

God, why do I have a craving for fried chicken all of a sudden?

Shoulda had the Chicken Tenders salad at lunch today. boo.

HabsFan29 said...

@LG77 - the chicken sandwich was good

OK kidz i'm off the grid until the start of the 2nd period. see you then. be excellent to each other

moeman said...

GG, the pic is sick!

Nice diddy 29.

Tandoori CHicken is da best.

moeman said...

P.K., I ♥ you.

♫ Some band called The Beatles version. ♫

As I write this parody,
Send my ♥ to PFK,
Remember that I'll always,
Be in love with you, Habs!

Treasure these few words 'til 'WE're together,
Keep all my love FHForever,
P.K., I ♥ you.
You, you, you.

You'll be playing at home again PFK,
Until the day we trade you,
P.K., I ♥ you.
You, you, you.

As I write this parody,
Send my ♥ to PFK,
Remember that I'll always,
Be in love with you, Pants!!

Treasure these few minutes Oh Subbanator,
Keep all our love FHForever,
P.K., 'WE' ♥ you.
You, you, you.

As I write this parody, (Go fucking Habs Go)
Send my ♥ to you, (You know 'WE' want you!!!)
Remember that WE'll always, (Oh Yeah!)
Be in love with you, PFK!
WatCH out for McSplooge!

You'll be playing at home again in Round 2,
And 'til the day WE do,
P.K., I ♥ you.
You, you, you.

lawyergirl77 said...

Why do I have a sudden craving for scotch to go with my fried chicken?

Aside from the fact that, really, them's just good eatin'!

Outstanding as always, Moe!!

Off to the game, kiddies. Although I sometimes tweet during games (intermissions), posting here is just too hard on a teeny iPhone screen. Unless we're losing badly and it's less painful to be on my iPhone than to be watching the ice...

But that's not gonna happen tonight, right? RIGHT??!!

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Moe
Beatles rule! Let's hope both PKs are on fire tonight!

RiRi said...

@moe - brilliant!

Either way this goes tonight, I can honestly say I'm proud of this team. Most of it. Ask me again in 3 hours.

One more time, Go You Fucking Habs Go!!!

moeman said...

Thnx FHFemmes.

~~~

darren pang just called Gio, "little"

RiRi said...

Found this little gem from Arpon Basu's twitter:

"Not too long after Subban's face on scoreboard drew cheers from #Habs fans, Bergeron's face was shown, drawing silence from fans"

Is it bad that I find this hilarious?

wv: marry - marry me, PK!

Le Douze said...

@LD - I haven't had a Moscow Mule, but I can tell you that ginger beer and Gosling's Black Seal dark rum is to die for.

I see that PFK played over 40 minutes in the 'Dogs second to last game against the Moose. Guess he was tired, he only scored 2 goals, and one of them was the one that put the game out of its misery.

Should I feel guilty that I'd like to see him play even if it's because Jaro 2.0 has some dread disease?

Go fuckin' pants!

Bill 101 said...

In the hopes that we remain this nervous for the next 48 hours at least:

GO HABS GO!!!

McSplooge has McSplooged all over No. 76 at least 3 times already. Not that I'm complaining.

ezzeloharr said...

Freakin' Squid has a 6 game point streak. Someone's earning his contract.

moeman said...

I wanna see PFK hit kNooble.

Number31 said...

I'm totally cool with Sergei being scratched if it means PK plays! He just saved Markov's ass right there lol...

Also, RALLY TOWELS! No fair :(

RiRi said...

Hamr, I'm going to kill you.

moeman said...

!!!!!!!!!!

Number31 said...

Dude. That 5-on-3 kill by Gorges, Gill, and Pyatt was gorgeous!

RiRi said...

Well thank god for Pyatt, Gorges and Gill.

Nail Hamr to the bench please. Save a spot for MAB next to him.

moeman said...

Esther, add Halak to the mix!

ezzeloharr said...

Gorges is amazing. Best defensive defenseman on the team. I'm always amazed when I see him play.

Orangeman said...

This is what us teachers call "Realizing your potential".

Oh, Andy Moog is back in the building.

moeman said...

@ezz, Babs' bets, trade, ever. (Bonus, was Pyatt, thrown in the Mex deal)

moeman said...

bets = best, friggin' tyops.

moeman said...

Best Habs hockey period in a long, long while. Fucking great hockey.

RiRi said...

What moe said

Orangeman said...

More please.

Gorges for Conn Smythe!

@Anon:
1) Pick a name, please.
2) Perhaps you could find an Internet feed? Check out atdhe.net?

RiRi said...

As per TSN, PFK's brother Malcom made 55 saves this weekend in a 3-2 loss in peewee hockey. When can we draft him?

Orangeman said...

Off to earn some bacon. Keep the fire going!

hfotwc said...

this is fuckin amazing hockey. with subban in, Bergeron is completely obsolete. bring back sergei.

GO LES FUCKING HABBBSSS!!!

hfotwc said...

@riri, Subban bro played in the Telus Cup, best midget aaa in Canada.

Number31 said...

I wish the Habs could draft all the Subbans. They're all awesome. And yes, his younger brother (the defenceman) is actually better than him if that were possible!

RiRi said...

@hfotwc - oops. thx!

RiRi said...

@31 - better than PFK?!? really? how old is he?

HabsFan29 said...

just walked in. what'd i miss?

i kid i kid. was out in the bar in my office building watching the first. 2-0 lead, im still freaking out

NICE KILL

RiRi said...

PK is unbelievable. and I'm not talking about #76 (this time).

HabsFan29 said...

YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME

diving?

I hate you Max

RiRi said...

Halak is nuts!!!

moeman said...

Jaro.

ezzeloharr said...

Hate to say it, but it's about time Laps gets called for diving.

wv: jines.

HabsFan29 said...

Pee-air is seriously mcsplooging on Jaro

RiRi said...

So they're now trying to knock Jaro unconscious?

moeman said...

Jaro!

RiRi said...

I saw Ovi shaking, I swear.

Number31 said...

CHOCOLATE MILK!

RiRi said...

We don't have a shot yet.

Baroque said...

Nice score - Glad to see that Montreal hasn't accepted their role as background noise in "The Washington Capitals Story."

Even on television that place is LOUD.

HabsFan29 said...

holding on for dear life in the middle of the second. ugh

hey, a SOG!

RiRi said...

Subban drives to the net and Pleks takes his spot on D. Scary for a second.

HabsFan29 said...

RiRi every move PFK makes scares me. and excites me.

RiRi said...

@29 - True. It's the good kind of excitment. Not the MAB kind.

RiRi said...

"Ovi sucks". Indeed.

moeman said...

phlegmiller "that won't help", um, pressure relieved you fucking Caps fan.

moeman said...

Idea for a new teevee show, "Canada's worst play-by-play man", cole vs. phleg.

Massive Tits said...

So, immediately after work, I went to an interview for another job. Interview went well and I got the job. Told him I could start Thursday. Thursday because I could mentally prepare myself for the game 7 on Wednesday I feel in my heart.
Is this bad karma on my part?

RiRi said...

"still looking for his first career playoff goal..."

HabsFan29 said...

oh max almost redeemed yourself

I AM SO FUCKING SICK OF MCSPLOOGE EVERY TIME OVIE HAS THE PUCK IT'S "look oooutt..."

moeman said...

phlegmiller "momentum changing". ???

hfotwc said...

stupid tsn, commecial break in the middle of some shenanigan

moeman said...

Congrats Massive Tits.

RiRi said...

No SH goals and we're golden.

HabsFan29 said...

yes Mazel Tov MT!

but we're totally blaming your heart karma if things go wrong

Number31 said...

Joel Bouchard said the Habs are all happy go lucky team spirit, and the Caps are tight and frustrated. And no Fehr you can't punch the puck, Markov and Jaro into the net to score.

HabsFan29 said...

how many chances on one PP can we miss. oh tits. your bro would have buried that

hfotwc said...

"Joel Bouchard said" as his face get completely distorted.

RiRi said...

Subban with a Gomez-esque move. *swoons*

Number31 said...

Subban! On the PP! Babysitting Hamr?

orangeman said...

2 down 1 to go. I'm preparing my paper bag for hyperventilation and copius amounts of booze to celebrate/drown the pain.

STFU, TSN.

tsn's Lipstick Dutch "can't wait to see what the Caps have to 'offer' in the 3rd".

How many penalties are called on the Habs in the third? May guess is 3 maybe 2 real.

Great to be a Habs fan.

Jaro is Roy 86ish.

Laps almost dove on that breakaway. Someone call bettman.

Laps loves being the center of attention

Yes! Game seven go!

orangeman said...

Just checked in on the score. In my head I thought, "It's probably 4-3 now." Then I opened the page and saw a 4 and almost fainted/punched an innocent child.

I can't believe this. Pinch me!

Everyone still alive? Holy hell, that was an amazing game.

I'm gonna cry...the fucking condo commitee scheduled a meeting on game 7!!!

And may I repeat:

These are the saves I know I know. These are the saves I know.

Buh Bye Sabres.

my heart is still racing

luckily TSN switched quickly to the Chi-Nas game so we can forget the Habs won

Holy Crap! It's 1993 all over again! It's like when I was a boy and the Habs won all the time!

@fez: Even the leafs?

gillis said...

Praise be to Halak

kevincrumbs said...

I have been avoiding posting during the game since it worked for Game 5 and apparently worked for Game 6. After Jaro made an amazing glove save in the second, I said to myself "Man, this game is over. No way is Washington going to win tonight". I also remember laughing out loud when the crowd did the Wave, which I always regard as a giant fuck you to the opposite team. You know, we've got this wrapped so I can sit here and amuse myself with the wave instead of watching the game.

Was anyone else slightly disappointed to not hear the crowd sing the goodbye song after the empty netter?

dwgs said...

Well slap my ass and call me Sally.
That was fun. And they played well enough that I never felt my usual dread of the impending collapse. Even though we got massively outshot, it was just one of those games where at some point you said 'it's ours, no matter what they do'
'Course I only really relaxed after the empty netter. It's a strange and wonderful feeling to be able to lean back and put your feet up on the couch, cradling your adult beverage casually while you watch the last minute of a playoff game.
wv - if you said that Jaro stolent that game you'd only be half right.

habsss said...

Oh fuck.

The best part was the look on ovie's face after pleks-jagr scored the empty netter right in front of him

ezzeloharr said...

@habsss: Pics?

GoldenGirl11 said...

Happy birthday JT!!! Nice present!

RiRi said...

Had to hand over the computer for the past 20 minutes but here it is:

TOMAS JAGR FTW!!!

So proud of this team!!!

*searches the Internet for that Ovi screenshot*

Le Douze said...

@dwgs - my feelings exactly.

@habsss - I thought the best part was the look on Ovie's face, I think it was in the second, when he split our D, slammed a grade A rocket at Jaro's 5-hole, slid past the goal post hard into the boards, and then realized that Jaro was just calmly siting there with the puck and it was all for naught.

@groin - "Dark and stormy", huh? Sounds vaguely familiar, but after a half dozen or so names like that (not to mention consonants) fade into oblivion. Maybe I should add some Outerbridge's hot sherry sauce to keep myself awake...

Le Douze said...

How many minutes did PFK play after that between the legs pass in the corner? Mrs. Le12 and I were imagining Count Chockula having a heart attack at that very second.

It's very odd that in a game were Mad Max took 2 diving penalties, I could be thinking that had had a legitimate shot at being considered for the 3rd star... And not particularly for the goal, either, more for the outstanding forechecking that he and Dominicator and Pyatt etc. were doing in the Washington ozone. Weird, in the past few weeks, there have been at least 2-3 games where Motormouth has looked like an actual hockey player.

Jaybird said...

I'm justy thinking Barack Woahbama won't even go watch a Caps game ... maybe cuz he knows they're shit.

Or he's a PK fan.

Suck it Caps....suck it long and suck it hard!

nu said...

Jaro post. (wv: it's edente) that this calls for an imminent one.

Le Douze said...

I just saw the 3 star selections on NHL.com and they have it the same as I was thinking ... Jaro (duh), Squid (ditto), and Mad Max (really??? I wasn't the only one who thought so??). Though you'd have to give some serious consideration to Josh Gorges, and maybe even HMCS Hal Gill.

i think I feel something resembling pride in this team. It's been so long that I actually forget the actual sensation. But I just admitted to someone that I'm a Habs fan and didn't feel the need to explain further or look at the ground.

It's weird.

The best news of all: Urologist only had 36 seconds of 5-on-5 TOI. Lock up the trunk and drive him outta town!

And we now pray to Saint Jaroslav, the Bombarded, our patron Saint of the Playoffs:

Our Jaro, who art in thy net,
Hallowed be thy saves.
Thy wins will come,
Thy will be done,
At home as it is on the road.

In thine name we pray,

GO HABS GO!!!

Wearing a Habs jersey in T.O. - priceless.

Now fuck these fuckers on Wednesday and all will be well...

Yeah that was a great moment. Any moment when Ovechkin lands on his ass is a great moment in my book.

I just finished watching my first ever Caps Post Game where one of the guys referred to the Habs as cockroaches.

Boudreau really does seem like kind of a dick. I have never really noticed or paid attention to him before, but after watching his post game press conference I can't remember the last time I saw him NOT freaking out over something. There's passion, then there's emotional instability.

Just got back from the Bell Centre! My ears are still ringing! What a wonderful sensation. I think I'm going to go to sleep tonight counting saves! WOW! My daughter pointed out that maybe it was the towels! Sure got the crowd into the game! I don't know what they were thinking with those fingers in games 3 and 4. You could pass out just from the smell. I prefer meth!

wv osolau-mio- ole ole ole ole now I get it! It's a GiantMexicanMoen chant!

Best goaltending performance the bell centre has ever seen.

Top 3 game ever played there. Maybe the best ever considering the circumstances, the quality of the opposition, the impossible noise level and Jaro's heroics.

Ole bitches! Pants!

(This definately warrants a Jaro post, no?)

@HF4 I'm not quite sure that game can top the 5-0 comeback win over the Rangers though... That one had me crying.

Bruce Boudreau is a big, fat, whiney, porcine baby. Given the Caps fans' bizarre mixture of inferiority complex, paranoia and entitlement, he's a perfect coach for that team. When he has his hands up in the air and is screaming he looks like King Hippo from Mike Tyson's Punchout.

Ovechkin dove like a motherfucker on that semi breakaway in the second. He dives all the time. Nobody ever calls him on it because he "plays the game the way it should be played."

Thanks Montreal. I hope you have one left in you. Think you can get Beliveau to D.C. for Wednesday? The man has to be good luck.
