Things are getting ugly - Flyers game preview and open thread

So how's that for a Sexy Friday? Well, you get what you deserve you Habs. One win in their last six games. At the most crucial time of the year. That's fucking ugly. Over those six games, they have scored a grand total of 11 goals. And two of those were into a fucking empty net. That's even uglier.

But the most ugliest ugly this week was the fucking fans who booed Carey Price for getting a third star. Fuck you, you idiots, And fuck JM for not really giving Carey some support. That was pretty ugly too, and his bullshit "I respect the fans. They pay good dollars to be entertained and they have a right to an opinion" answer was pathetic. Stubbs got that one right. Hal Gill ripped into the fans who booed, like a real leader. JM's passive bullshit is ugly. Let's face it, things are ugly. Like a big fat ass.

But all can be redeemed with a mere win! Just one, for fuck's sake. Is that too much to ask? Let's hit the bullets to quickly set this one up, 'cause we gotta blow out of here for the long weekend:
  • 7 PM start at the Wachovia Center, and it's on TSN. Philly ain't too hot either, losers of 8 of their last 11. I'm sure we all remember getting crushed by Philly in a home and home going into the Olympic break. At least we had Cheryl Bernard and Ashleigh McIvor to cheer us up after that. Ahh, good times. Saw Ashleigh on The Hour yesterday. Looked fabulous! Sorry, where was I?
  • Flyers Goal Scored By... is an awesome source of Flyers opinion. And Ryan's a decent guy. And they have an iPhone app! They're fancy;
  • Hot Habs - yeah right. Maybe Big Tits who has four points in his last four. And our goalies I guess;
  • Danny Brière has 3 points in his last 2 games. That qualifies as hot for the Flyers;
  • Anyone who is either supposed to put the puck in the net or play defence is cold for the Habs;
  • Mike Richards has a mere point in his last 5, and the Flyers have goaltending issues;
  • Oh look, more injuries! Little Tits is day to day with some lower-body issues, and he did not make the trip to Philly. Flyers lost their only serviceable goalie, Michael Leighton, for the rest of the season, and leading scorer Jeff Carter is out probably 'til the end of the year too;
  • Your starting goalie is good 'ol Jaro. Does that mean Price comes back tomorrow night in Montreal?
  • How about a post-game adult entertainment establishment? Head over to Cheerleaders, which is within spitting distance of the Wachovia Center. Looks classy. Bottle of Stoli only $225. Bring cash.
OK as mentioned we're outta here (to the land of the 56k modems but 50" HDTV). Be excellent to each other, and HF4 and GG will have you covered over the busy next two days. I hope to return to all lollipops and sunshine on this here corner of the interwebs. I expect to return to tar and fathers.

That's some big assed matchup tonight! Go Left Cheek Go! Take a bite out of the right one!

Arazi13 said...

The Habs need to bust the proverbial nut on the right cheek and cover it with throat yogurt...

is that too much? did i cross a line?

Hopefully it will be Hall Gill and what i can only assume is a horse sized #$%%.

p.s. i was at the bus stop and a bunch of buses kept passing saying hors service...

this dude asked me how come they are all on equestrian duty...

Number31 said...

Jacques Martin has no balls. A coach with balls would have played Price tonight. (He'll probably play tomorrow anyway, against the TOP TEAM IN THE DIVISION and the Habs won't score goals for him).

The Bell Center terrorists have won.

Hal Gill is a solid human being.

Flyers are starting their other AHL goalie as Johan Backlund has disappeared off the face of the Earth. (Flyers goalie injured? Who'd have thunk it!)

And if the Habs don't pump 5 or more past the orange goalie, they deserve to fail in the playoffs (which I believe they'll default in regardless of how many games they win/lose).

moeman said...

It better not be a come from behind win either. Pound em'!

Go you Habs that fuck!

ezzeloharr said...

In other dire, depressing and despair-filled Habs news, a great piece by J.T., à la moeman.

Jaybird said...

@ 31 - I agree. Price deserves another start. Martin is probably the worst coach in the NHL. If he would at least show some emotion he may not look as bad but there is no spark shown at the start of third periods which makes me wonder what he says at intermission if he says anything at all. Go Muller!

@ arazi - I think there is nothing you could say that would offend anyone as we are mired in this losing streak. I'll one up you. That girls ass definitely still has some shit in it.

WV: When I eat sushi I tessisoy sauce before I mix it with wasabi.

Robbie said...

Thanks GG11 I'm heading back to therapy after that one. Someone call Tiger i think we just found, ''that ass that he owns''.

Number31 said...

It's so hot outside.......... What is this? Who wants to bet it'll be -10 in July?

gillis said...

meh

CanuckleHead said...

fuck i hope to god we don't lose Price this summer, I like what some one said earlier, when Price is on his game he is scary when Halak is you can't tell and still lets in soft ones. ugh! GO YOU FUCKING HABS YOU

GoldenGirl11 said...

@gillis
I think you've been summing it up best in your last 5 comments. Short and sweet.

eyebleaf said...

That's a ton of ass.

RiRi said...

They better fucking light up the Flyers goalie tonight... I want at least 5 goals bitches!

Also, I'm guessing Price starts tomorrow with the hopes that they do right by him and actually win it!

You know what would be a nice finish for such a beautiful day like today? A fucking win! Get 'er done,boys!! Go Habs Go!!!

P.S. If they get shut out by the Flyers' AHL team's second backup, I'm done.

Number31 said...

Hmm now it sounds like Booooooooucher is playing. Oh well, better for the Habs.

However Spacek is sick and MAB is on D. Prepare for the horror...

moeman said...

Cruel and not kind

Based on ...


Oh, TFS™ can't take another heartaCHe

Though I say my FHFriend, Carey's at his wit's end

'We' say our Jesus love is bonafide, but that don't coincide

With the things that fans boo and when Bob asked you to be nice


I say, you've got to be...


Cruel and not kind, go fuck yourself!

Cruel and not kind, you're not very good sign

Cruel and not kind means that you lost it

ASSHOLES!, got to be cruel, you got to be cruel and not kind


Well he does his best to play in net here

But ASSHOLES! still mystify, my Pants! want to know why

He picks himself up off the ground to have JM knock him back down

Again and again and when 'We' ask you, to explain


I say, you've got to be...


Cruel and not kind, go fuck yourself!!

Cruel and not kind, you're not very good sign

Cruel and not kind means that you lost it

ASSHOLES!, got to be cruel, you got to be cruel and not kind


Booh … ooh ... ooh ...
ooh … ooh ... ooh ...

ASSHOLES!

moeman said...

SuperPlexe! with Big Tits!

RiRi said...

Pleks!!!

RiRi said...

Sure is quiet around here...

How could anyone be missing this mind-numbing excitment?!?

moeman said...

They're all at CHurCH. Confessing.

moeman said...

Wow.

GoldenGirl11 said...

I'm here. Friday night is a tough one.

Ronan said...

O'Byrne looks like a 2007-2008 Komisarek tonight. Good thing or bad omen?

gillis said...

@GG: i'm just putting as much effort into my comments as the habs have put into their playing the last few games

moeman said...

@GG, Rumtinis do the trick.

GoldenGirl11 said...

Anythinginis for mom of gg so we can watch.

kevincrumbs said...

@moeman: 100 cocktails for the Nick Lowe. Been rocking my vinyl copy of "Labour of Lust" over the past few weeks.

Why does TSN have such a big issue with Max smiling?

AK looks pretty good out there.

moeman said...

Thnx kc.

tsn is still mad at Max for his HFB and ray ferraroar! has yet to beat the shit out of him like he promised he would do. How a POS like ferraro still has a job is beyond me. Oh wait, he's a Habs hater. Never mind.

Did I mention that ray ferraro is a POS? No? Well ray ferraro is a POS.

orangeman said...

Just tuning in here...

Pleks!! Please don't leave us!

Yes, JM should play Price because the organization, fans and other players totally owe HIM. When did this all become about one player?

Anyway, Phuck you Phlyers.

GO HABS GO!

gillis said...

am i the only one who gags everytime they see the sexy friday picture?

GoldenGirl11 said...

@gillis
uh, no. Kept me up half the night.

Ronan said...

And of course the first penalty goes to us.

Great shift by Dominic Moore.

RiRi said...

Fucking Rangers are up 4-0... Hear that, Habs? STEP IT UP.

GoldenGirl11 said...

I think we're going to score 5 on the third..... Oh wait that's the anythinginis talking.

Ronan said...

This is another of those games where we do everything right except score and then they get a garbage goal, isn't it?

WV: "woost". Why do the Habs make the woost goalies look like Brodeur?

GoldenGirl11 said...

VanRiemsdyk is a great name.

RiRi said...

"Un autre bel arret de Brian
Boucher!"

This sentence makes me nauseous.

RiRi said...

HALAK!!!

Jaybird said...

Well...hate to say it but this is dejavu. Outplay them in first two periods. Make their shit goalie look like Vezina contender. Carry a weak ass lead like the shit in the girls ass in pic above into the third. Flyers get two goals walk away with two points.

Is it just me or is this team fucking boring to watch? Even I the usual optimist is getting tired of this trash.

Stop giving the MEAT of the power play to Gionta and Gomez. Fuck fuck fuck

GoldenGirl11 said...

Overheard in my living room...
'Halak is god' and 'i didn't know prince Charles on steroids is coaching the habs'

Jaybird said...

Ray Ferraro is a fucking POS. I hope his kid gets Boothed.

RiRi said...

Hartnell looks like the biggest douche that ever lived.

RiRi said...

PLEASE SCORE HERE.

RiRi said...

Cammy couldn't be any more "off".

kevincrumbs said...

Well, at least we survived the 2nd period.

matt - ftc said...

Looking very familiar...I wonder how far they will make it into this period before they blow it. Do the Habs ever score 3 in a game? Not including empty nets.

Jaybird said...

Nope.

kevincrumbs said...

Hey, hey Red Light Racicot got a mention!

kevincrumbs said...

For a supposedly top tier PP, this PP certainly sucks donkey balls.

kevincrumbs said...

No way is that a goal. BTW, both of these teams suck.

Ronan said...

Did I hear the RDS guys correctly? The Flyers had 6 guys on the ice for 30 seconds, the refs didn't notice, there was a whistle, and the refs discussed it and didn't call a penalty?!

RiRi said...

You heard correct, Ronan. Cannot believe this bullshit.

orangeman said...

Can only listen on the radio. Sounds bad.

matt - ftc said...

So, are we still thanking Bob for this marshmellow soft team that he has put together for us?

RiRi said...

Does JM have a "NO OFFENSE ALLOWED, DUMP-INS ONLY IN 3RD" policy?

Jaybird said...

Pa - thetic.

Rips it, scores! said...

This period & the last 10 of the second have been absolutely pathetic from the Habs. It's been like one never-ending powerplay from Philly since then.

You can't expect Halak to do EVERYTHING for you, you lazy pricks.

matt - ftc said...

It is not that they aren't trying, it is just that they really are this shitty when it comes down to crunch time. If they make it, first round sweep for sure.

RiRi said...

WAKE UP YOU FUCKERS.

If we can't score on Boucher, tomorrow should be awesome!

matt - ftc said...

bergeron looks brutal out there

kevincrumbs said...

@mattftc: I agree. I'd even prefer Subban out there.

This team can't even get the puck out of their own zone with consistency. They suck.

Rips it, scores! said...

@matt: Even the shittiest team should be able to push back a little bit and not play 20 minutes of constant puck-dumping.

I mean, they are trying but it's all containment play, like trying to hold a 1-0 lead in a soccer match.

RiRi said...

Imagine if the Flyers hadn't played last night...

kevincrumbs said...

Empty netter, please.

Rips it, scores! said...

Habs with no shots in 15 minutes, against Boucher. Unreal.

Word verif: prodack, as in "The Habs (potential) playoff run will not be a prodackted one, if they play like this."

moeman said...

Ugly ass win.

RiRi said...

These idiots actually did it.

kevincrumbs said...

That was ugly and horrible. I feel dirty after watching that.

Man, if we suck that badly, the Flyers must really, really, really suck.

RiRi said...

And our worst fears are confirmed: unless Price/Halak gets a shutout, this team can't win.

Orangeman said...

Oie. Whatever, 2 points. Hmmmmm...I thought I heard somewhere recently that it was impossible for a goalie to win with only one goal in support.

hahah. I just won't let it go!

matt - ftc said...

The entire team should pitch in and book the VIP room all night for Halak. He should have his pick of 10 of the finest in the place.

Ronan said...

It's a wonder Halak doesn't have back problems, the way he carries this team.

Rips it, scores! said...

Halak is God.

Price is cursed. The puck would have hit off a passing buzzard & ricocheted into the net had he been playing tonight. Oh, and an obscure rule in the NHL rulebook would then be found whereby goals deflected off a buzzard automatically award a 3-0 win to the other side.

Anonymous said...

no grit, no hussle, no hits..the only guy to show up was Halak. lucky win,,but we'll take it.
3 shots in the 3rd? for real? they do know they're playing for a playoff spot don't they?

Orangeman said...

And just think, they play tomorrow on very little rest against the division leader. Yay!

Anonymous said...

when was the last time Gomez stood in front of the net? Peewee?
Urologist must have a urinary tract infection,,he was brutal tonight. Bring up Subban now...he can't be worse than Gill or Bergeron?

habsss said...

Direct quote from one of the TSN guys:
"Oh Pronger give it to me!"

I hope I'm not the only one who picked up on it.

Ronan said...

@ Anon
I dunno, I thought Markov, Gorges, O'Byrne, and Moore played pretty well. You know, the guys who have fewer than 10 goals apiece. What the hell is up with Squid?!

Orangeman said...

The good news is that Atlanta has a really tough road ahead of them. Then, Philly and NYR play home-home to close the season. So, one of those teams will take the other one out (unless they exchange OT wins). So, basically, we just have to hope Atlanta has some problems with the Pens and Caps and that the Phlyers and Rangers don't go into OT (better yet, just home one team wins both games in regulation). And let's not forget the Habs have 3 below playoff teams to close the season (that they've managed to lose to recently, but still).

Ah, hoping other teams lose to ensure success for your team. Nothing like being a Habs fan.

gillis said...

habs win, plan the parade

Number31 said...

Bergeron is so full of fail he makes me want to claw my eyes out and eat them. Paired with Hamr? I'm heading for the nearest bridge...

RiRi said...

Jaro post? Please?

Howard said...

Having just watched the game on PVR do I:

a) agree that Jaro was the only Hab to show up.
b) hate the PHucking Flyers especially Hartnell!
c) think we should take the 2 pts and run.
d) all of the above

wv unpar: what Tiger will be shooting when he get's a load of that ass. Pleaaaaase make it goooo away! It's a MONSTER for McSplooge!

kevincrumbs said...

I hope Jaro is drowning in chocolate milk as I type this. The boy deserves nothing less after tonight's performance.

Howard said...

The city of Butt-erly love?

Jaybird said...

Price has played 24 games in which the Canadiens scored 2 goals or less.
In those 24 games Price has a .918 SV% and is 3-19-2 in those games.

Halak has played 14 games in which the Canadiens scored 2 goals or less.
In those 14 games Halak has a .898 SV% and is 2-10-2 in those games.

Halak's record with 3 or more goals of support? 22-2-1
Price's record with 3 or more goals of support? 10-1-3.

Nuff said?
