It's all over tonight - Habs/Flyers Game 5 Preview and Open Thread


So tonight it comes to end. The thrilling action. The unrelenting drive of our heroes. Good versus evil. The love. The hate. The explosions. The ridiculous yet entertaining story lines. The frustration. Fuck, it's been one hell of a wild ride. Over all this time, nothing has been crazier. You can say a lot of things about it, but you can't deny it's been an amazing run. And tonight it's all over. 24 is no more.

Oh, you thought I meant the Habs' playoffs? Don't be silly. Habs got 'em right where they want 'em.

7:00 P.M. - 8:00 P.M. - the hour when we'll know all we need to know. On the plus side if we lose tonight, the torture (see what I did there?) of our Bob Cole et CBC al national nightmare will finally be over.

Hot like naked Mandy - The Flyers, especially Michael Leighton and Claude Giroux.

Cold like the bodies of Teri, George Mason, Ryan Chappelle, Edgar, Michelle, Tony (he's dead to me), Curtis, Nina, David Palmer, Bill Buchanan, Renee, a shitload of bad guys, and several thousand innocent bystanders - The Habs, especially, uh, everyone. If I was forced to pick someone, we'll go with Pleks.

Wounded like CHase's severed hand - Pyatt's upper body. DarCHe takes his spot.

Evil like a Drazen, Logan, Sherry Palmer, any male Bauer not named Jack, any number of Russians, and any number of Middle Eastern dudes from unspecified or fictitious Middle Eastern countries but really they were Middle Eastern don't forget that - Despite her allegiances, Kristin is not really evil.

10:00 P.M. - 11:00 P.M. - the hour when you can either weep or masturbate to an Elisha Cuthbert photo gallery. Or both I guess. Kim Bauer will always be special to FHF. Stupid cougar.

Let's hear your memories of either the playoff or 24 run in the comments. Maybe for the last time, GYFHG.

you guys/gals are brilliant! Love the photo!

GYFHG!!! I want angry! I want assholes!!!

Marry me, Mike Cammalleri. Uh oops.

GO YOU FUCKING HABS! BRING ON THE WODKA!

lawyergirl77 said...

What a perfect preview for the game... seriously - kudos to both 29 and GG11 for some stellar work.

At least if we've gotta go out, we're going out with a bang, right? *refuses to acknowledge 3 shutout losses*

RiRi said...

OMG. That pic is perfect! And the preview ain't too bad, either!

Here's hoping the Habs tell Chocula to go fuck himself and rebel against the system. Balls out tonight, boys!

GYFHG!!!

P.S. Please tell me it's not ending tonight? Please?

the Maritimer said...

I hope they at least make Leighton break a sweat tonight.

Tyg said...

Excellent photo. Makes Cammy look taller, and also macho. Big gun too! Cannot agree about Spawn being all that tho. Having watched 24 for most of its run, I've never seen the need for her character other than to stress out her daddy even more, just in case the constant terrorist gunfights weren't enough to do the trick.

moeman said...

19 game playoff swt, heh.

GYFH!

J.T. said...

@GG11: I thought it was just another (ho hum) beautiful 'shop job, until I saw the miniature copy of the pic on the spine of the DVD. That, dear lady, is art.

I don't know why I feel maybe this isn't the end of the line. Maybe Game Six is the end of the line, but I just feel they're going to haul out their balls and go like hamsters tonight.

lawyergirl77 said...

@JT: The mental image I now have of fluffy little hamsters with gigantic clanging cojones has me simultaneously reaching for the bleach for my mind's eye... and wiping the tears from the hysterical laughter!!

Random Hab Girl said...

GYFHG!!!!!!!!!!

Give it EVERYTHING you have. Let's see the team we love tonight.

I've been listening to 'Sun is on my side' by Gogol Bordello. It feels right today for some reason. I'm already feeling sad and nostalgic.

GYFHG!!! Maybe for the last time..

Thank you guys for all the genius posts. Reading this blog will be engraved in my fond memories of this playoff run forever! Fourhabsfans- you're more creative and intelligent and real than most of the columnists out there.

xoxo

kristin said...

I guarantee a Habs win tonight. I will be at the game rooting for Chris Pronger and Michael Leighton while wearing my Michael Leighton jersey. My jinxing powers are unparalleled! You're welcome in advance!

Also, loved the prescient sand/beach post from Saturday. If I didn't know any better, I'd think it was all your fault, 29!

(Wait, did a Flyers fan just use the word "prescient"?)

b said...

Bettman is beat- cf.
http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/25/sports/football/25needle.html?hp

Soon we will be able to buy our favorite trademark without the NHL on it. After all, the team was around before the NHL even existed.

Now to liberate Les Boys from the system. As Toe Blake said, "you guys are too skilled for me to tell you what to do." Just fly, faster than the flyers, and make Pronger feel like the old man he is. If Darche's brother can play in the NFL, Mathieu can bang. Bang, bang Flyers, Bang, BANG.

Bill 101 said...

Chins up comrades!

best case: we're not done with this madness yet

worst case: coolest season in a long time and there's still beer in the fridge.

Unwavering for the time being,

Go Habs Go!!

J.T. said...

@LG77: Whatever works for you...but I hope our hamsters have their cojones clanking loud enough to drown out those goddamn Flyers Ole-ing fans.

GoldenGirl11 said...

@JT
Thank you. I was waiting for someone to notice. Maybe my attention to detail will rub off on the team. You know, like shooting on the net and scoring goals. Those are the kind of details that are cool in a hockey game.
GYF HAMSTER HABS!!!!

Darksyde said...

JUST.
FUCKING.
COMPETE!!!!

Play like I know you Bleu, Blanc, et Rouge bastards can!
Fuck the "Drive for 25" or any other bullshit cliché. Play for honour. Play for fun. But FUCKING PLAY THE GAME!

GO YOU MOTHER FUCKING, PHILLY ASS RAPING, ROSES ARE RED, VIOLETS ARE BLUE, HARTNELLS' A GOON, SO PHILLY FUCK YOU!!! HABS GO!!!

J.T. said...

@GG11: Other little details like Habs not taking dumbass o-zone penalties and people in white colliding with people in black and orange on purpose are also beneficial to our collective state of well-being at this point.

Go Hamsters Go! Balls to the wall!

GoldenGirl11 said...

@JT
Crazy thought here but clean passes and cycling the puck might also be something to consider.

Gentlemen, and Women:

PENS fan here. I was unfortunately kept away from the web(overseas in a dry dusty area) so was unable to provide timely congratulations to the HABS and their fans as represented by FHF.

As a looooong (said as in LOONY) time connoisseur of your not so bad delights hearaboooot (again with the bad hoser accent jokes from an arrogant AMI LOL) and B-uuuu-T-ful gals it felt appropriate, if late to say congratulations on your great year to this point, but specifically your sound defeat in the big game vs my PENS YOU honorary (as if you give a fuck) YINZERS!

Well done and full marks.

Now that thats over with can I ask a favor?

WILL YOU PLEASE KICK THE CRAP OUTTA the hated x8 FILTHADELPIA!?!?! I mean don't you have em where you want em by now?

Regards, much luck and Late Salutations,

PENS FAN Mark

Kmaxx said...

Ireally don't know if this will be the last game or not tonight - I hope it isn't but I just can't predict with these guys. They should be winning this series but they are not. They should win tonight but they might not. I hope that whatever happens they can muster more than 1 shot in a period. That wouldn't be cool.

So (hopefully not for the last time) GO YOU FUCKIN' HABS GO! GO YOU FUCKIN' HABS GO! GO YOU FUCKIN' HABS GO! GO YOU FUCKIN' HABS GO! GO YOU FUCKIN' HABS GO!
GO YOU FUCKIN' HABS GO!

Moey said...

I loved President Palmer, he was the bestest president, the rest were weasels. His wife was a bitch though. Still love Tony too, I wish Jack would turn and become a highly paid mercenary. I'm pissed that I have to PVR it tonight. Actually I''m still torn. Should I watch 24 and flip between commercials? Or do I PVR the hockey game? No, I couldn't trust myself to not FF to the end. Okay, Habs, but Mr. Moey will be watching 24 and he'll know how it ends before me. Arrrgghhhh!

*head pops*

Number31 said...

Hey JT, my hamster is named after Plekanec for a reason ;)

GYFH!

Moey said...

@N31,

Pleky (the player) was getting it today on the Team990. I think the Habs were smart not to offer him big bucks before the playoffs.

J.T. said...

@N31: Is he a (ahem) well-endowed hamster?

Mr. natural said...

@Darksyde, couldn't agree more.

I am exhausted from this playoff run and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Go Jack! GYFHG! Jack was at game 1. I was waiting for him to jump on the ice and take Pronger hostage! Gonna miss 24! No season finale for the Habs tonight!

wv I hope the Habs give the Flyers acksms!

GIO!!!

HabsFan29 said...

GIO FUCK YEAH!!!!

Leighton is WEAK. FINISH HIM

kevincrumbs said...

GIO, FUCKERS!!!!

Also, God this fucking building was already super quiet before Gio even scored.

Orangeman said...

GIO!

RiRi said...

Hey Hartnell, FUCK OFF.

Orangeman said...

Habs are undefeated when they score. Yay!

kevincrumbs said...

Ah Hartnell, trying to stir shit up to try to get his team some sort of momentum. Come on Habs, don't fall for this stupid shit.

kevincrumbs said...

This crowd sucks donkey balls. Even the Caps crowd is better than this.

kevincrumbs said...

Haha, neaderthals take a penalty.

Orangeman said...

That's what you get when you're a goon. GOON!

HabsFan29 said...

oh jaro

RiRi said...

WTF WAS THAT?!?

kevincrumbs said...

HALAK, WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING!?

Orangeman said...

Jaro, I love you, but that was boneheaded.

RiRi said...

I'm gonna puke.

ALso, did I hear that right? O'Byrne on the PP?

kevincrumbs said...

Wow, okay. I don't think we're going to win this game anymore.

Orangeman said...

Can we decline PPs from now on. Seriously, they were doing better 5-5.

RiRi said...

When they first scored, I thought: "wow, what a great way to start the game!".

Now I'm thinking: "jesus christ this is the worst fucking way to start"...

boob gainey said...

Halak what are you doing?

RiRi said...

PP? No, thank you.

Orangeman said...

No, Bob, just because you want them to ignore the obvious trip doesn't mean they will. But, really, can we just decline it? You know what happens when your PP sucks this much? A goon team like Philly manhandles you knowing if they get a penalty it won't matter.

Anonymous said...

The whole pp breakdown started when Bergeron was run over like a rag doll at the point attempting to keep in a puck on was otherwise a routine play.

Orangeman said...

Yeah, you fucktard, the bench called that one.

kevincrumbs said...

Hm, who gets the SH goal this time?

kevincrumbs said...

Well, tripping Giroux is better than giving up a SH goal.

Massive Tits said...

Screw me in the ass with an egg beater.

RiRi said...

Anyone else want to murder MAB right now? Just checking.

boob gainey said...

Can we trade AK46 in between periods?

Useless.

Orangeman said...

Why is it when Montreal has a PP there are more Phlyers at every point of the ice? How can they have had two 2-1s and 2 breakaways SH already? How can you be that bad on the PP?

A.J. Bassett said...

Anonymous said...

... aaaaaaand .... on the 2nd pp, Bergeron is caught totally out of position, and takes a hacking penalty.

Forget waving a powerplay, just keep Bergeron OFF THE ICE.

boob gainey said...

Not to defend MAB, but that was Big Tits' fault for losing the puck so easily.

boob gainey said...

I hope the Hawks sweep these fucking goons.

RiRi said...

MAB and AK46. Same thing, no?

Both have a good shot but are useless otherwise.

kevincrumbs said...

To be fair, outside of the terrible goal, the teams both looks sluggish and not so great. The Hawks must be salivating.

Anonymous said...

well, yes, in fairness, AK46 made an unforced error/turnover that led to the Flyer's first goal.

Anyone informed Andrei that tonight's game is ... oh ... I don't know... IMPORTANT??

RiRi said...

Dustin Byfuglien is going to have a field day with Leighton.

kevincrumbs said...

In happier news, VS's sideline reporter is hot.

Orangeman said...

I don't know much about the technicalities of hockey, I'd never be a coach or anything. But the fact that MAB is still dressed at this point tells me things ain't right.

Orangeman said...

Wait, how on Earth is that a penalty? I think I missed something.

Anonymous said...

George's penalty ... did I blink and miss it? That was interference?

Massive Tits said...

Already frustrated with a somewhat lackluster start, beyond Gio's line, Bob Cole has me 1/16th of an inch from a murderous rampage. How can you do play-by-play when you can't keep up with the play nor do you KNOW THE RULES.
Brutal, just brutal.

kevincrumbs said...

As usual, no Habs are going to the net.

Anonymous said...

considering the devastating nature of that first Flyers' goal, the boys are holding their own. Get the feeling this is settling down a bit.

Orangeman said...

Like I said, I'm no expert, but I don't think you'll generate with a one man forecheck. Also, how can you possibly give up so many oddman rushes while still only doing a one man forecheck. Where are they? What are they doing out there?

RiRi said...

Is this not the most frustrating game ever?

RiRi said...

*screams into pillow*

kevincrumbs said...

Just get out of the first period tied one all. That's all I want right now.

Orangeman said...

The one thing we're supposed to have on the Phlyers is speed. So why is it they're beating us to every puck and getting break after break?

Orangeman said...

Stop with the 3 passes before a shot attempt, wouldja? Just fucking shoot it when you get it.

Orangeman said...

Are we still going on about the top PP line at the end of G3? Really? Phlyers didn't come out fighting in G4. They scored 2 breakaway goals, that's it. It was actually a pretty lame game. And where's the outrage for Philly's running up the score to 6-0 in G1? Fuck you everyone at CBC. Between this and the sand accusations the media is really grasping for straws trying to discredit the Habs before they go out.

Number31 said...

Jaro will turn me into an alcoholic...

boob gainey said...

The notion that we are fast and they are tough is based more on history than on present squads.

The Flyers are generally more speedy than thuggish.

In interviews Mike Richards is the dumbest most boring player in the game today.

I miss Pyatt.

And I miss not giving up goals. FUCK.

Oops. Another bad goal. Jacques please call a timeout.

nice little pushback here.

fezworth said...

I remember this time in 2010, when the Habs were playing in Game 5 against the Flyers, and they were up by a goal. Gionta scored that one, back in 'aught ten.

Those were heady days. Well.. a heady 3 minutes, anyway.

Number31 said...

I think I'll just start eating my ice cream now...

Anonymous said...

Pouliot with two incredibly brutal consecutive shifts. Going to be tough rationalizing keeping this guy around next season.

kevincrumbs said...

Well, the good news is that this is might be the last time we see someone with the last name Kostitsyn in a Habs jersey. Also, no more Chicken, hopefully.

Bill101 said...

starting to waver

Orangeman said...

I know it might be early and it sounds like sour grapes, but there is no way Philly holds a candle to Chicago. Unless Niemi totally falls apart it'll be over in 4.

Ok, we get Laperrier blocked a shot. I fail to see how manly it was if he's wearing a protective globe around his head. I mean, it's great and all, but let's get over it.

Number31 said...

OH WONDERFUL

kevincrumbs said...

Great, too many men on the ice. Maybe we'll also get a delay of game, one more time before our season is over.

Number31 said...

Hal Gill you are a man. I bet he uses Old Spice.

kevincrumbs said...

Hate watching games like these. Just waiting and watching for the Habs to slowly die.

Prove me wrong, kids, prove me wrong!

Orangeman said...

I've said it before and I'll say it again: It's fucking Leighton. Put it on the fucking net. Shooting it 10 feet wide will do NOTHING!

fezworth said...

One thing I've noticed all series long is that we suddenly can't hit the net, or put any passes on the tape of another stick. Very bizarre, because that stuff was working in the last two series.

kevincrumbs said...

Yawn.

kevincrumbs said...

Hm. Why do I think this might also be Pleks' last game as a Hab?

Number31 said...

Mmmm ice cream.

And 1-0 Bulldogs.

GYFH!!!

kevincrumbs said...

5-3, great.

kevincrumbs said...

5 on 3, rather.

Ok, use that kill as momentum!

So, first hit the net! FUCK!

Great pressure. NOW SHOOT THE FUCKING PUCK........AT THE FUCKING NET!

Number31 said...

It's like "oh I have a perfectly wide open net, TIME TO FREAK OUT" *fans on shot*

boob gainey said...

OK.

We never had a Stanley Cup contender. We had a lot of injuries this season and lost Markov in the playoffs.

Subban isn't ready for prime time and MAB is ready for retirement.

We have to play Darche with Gomez and Gionta.

And Philly are actually damn good. Airtight d and they just make you pay every time you screw up.

But in the end, we went way farther than we should have.

Congrats boys and see you next year.

GO HABS GO!

Bill 101 said...

Dearest Habs,

Please make some more history. If that is too much to ask, just liven it up and exit with dignity.. please.

Go Habs Go!!!

*Depressed*
Please produce a miracle.
What do you think they're saying right now in the room?

RiRi said...

Here's hoping they show some fight.

No stupid unsportsmanlike penalties too.

I still can't believe they ousted the Caps AND Pens and THIS is how they're getting eliminated. Sigh.

One last time, Go Habs Go!!!

Is it possible to look forward to this period with a sense of gratitude for what these boys have done?

OH ya and SHOOT THE FUCKING PUCK, did you see Leighton go down again when Gio had the puck.

Man someone is going to make Swiss cheese of of that guy

Dear Byfuglien, I would like you to destroy these pumpkins.

b said...

Exciting Hockey to the End.
Count Choke-ula. Shorten the bench until you have nothing left. Yell at the boys to stick to the system after the most exciting first period all year- the system showed how much it sucked in the second period.

MAB- why he sucks-
two things-
1)he skates backwards on his toes. He was taught wrong- that's like skating foward on your heels- he's off balance and he looks like a doofus.
2) he has some kind of vision problem. The puck gets in his feet and he looses it- either can't kick it forward- which would be from being chronically off balance, or he needs glasses, or has contacts which aren't correct.

I don't think it was Choke-ula's coaching that brought the boys this far.
Was Mark Streit worth the money? Ubetcha sweet bippie.

The good news, the babies born in bluet country will soon be named Piqué.

Random Hab Girl said...

Happy Birthday Orangeman..the big 30 is coming very soon for me too. How does it feel?

RiRi said...

Glad they showed fight and kept it close in the 3rd. I'm so proud of what they accomplished and will probably be even moreso tomorrow morning. But for now, it just stings. Gill looked so sad and it broke my heart.

Off to raid my fridge for some cookie dough.

"Philadelphia Flyers, Eastern Conference Champs". I just threw up in my mouth a little. Ugh.

Go Hawks Go!!!

Moey said...

At the end of the day, a four legged horse beat a (minus Markov) three legged horse. But damn, that three legged horse ran a hell of a race.

@Hab Girl: Between this and the Lost finale, mostly empty and frustrating.

Seriously, folks, it's been a blast this spring. In the coming days we'll pick apart what really happened but right now I feel nothing but happiness and pride for my team since birth.

And, hey, at least they didn't get shut out!

Thank you Habs, thank you Montreal and thank you FHF. I can accept entering my 30s knowing I saw at least one good playoff run in my 20s.

Great game guys! We got a couple of lucky breaks and Gomez and PK made me nervous all 3rd period. You had a great season and should be proud. Just get rid of that Bergeron guy - he really sucks! Been fun reading your hate filled tirades. Love and peace.

Well I don't think Pleks is gonna get as big a raise as he thought considering he's been invisible for the past few weeks. See you guys on free agency day

Orangeman said...

foo, you're much too reasonable to be a Philly phan. What's your REAL deal?

Seriously, congrats and all that. While I could never cheer for the Phlyers I do recognize they deserve what they've earned. The fact that I want them to be embarrassed by the Hawks should not distract from that.

Baruch said...

its been a great run guys! More than I ever expected with the kind of season we had. Hopefully we can pick up a couple of bruisers and dump a couple of dozers, and come back with a strong core Giant Mexican Squid and the Colonel's Secret recipe. thank you so much FHF! see you next season!!

Sorry I couldn't partake in the fun kidz (felled by a debilitating cold).

Thanks Habs for a fantastic playoffs. A break here, a mistake there and oh so close.

Go Hawks, in 4.

Cheers for the good wishes, foo. Best of luck in the final, although I will be rooting for the 'Hawks. Nothing against Philly but I just have a soft spot for them.

And of course, thanks to the FHF boys & GG11 for another season full of laughs, insight and pants.

GYFH!

Go Hawks. Also Geoff Molson, please invest in some actual scouts next year. The Habs' supply of young (mostly wasted) talent is depressing.

Gah! My heart breaks for this team.

Thanks, Habs, for showing us heart, courage and CHaracter and for making a city fall in love again.

It was an awesome run made even more so by FHF.

While the stars were almost aligned for this year's run, I remain hopeful about next season. This team has guts and a core of CHaracter guys. Pretty extraordinary stuff considering that so many dismissed this team 8 months ago as a Sec 2 science experiment.

GYFHYG next year!

Thanks Foo..
You're so..nice and polite. Kind of unexpected. Best of luck with your team.

Best post here in a long time. (Don't worry, that's not a dig or anything, I mean it in a good way. Shut up, Rookie.) If anything had to be the last game preview, I'm glad it was this one. Way to go out on a high note.

Thanks alot guys, and I mean the folks who kept this site up and running all year long.

It obviously ate up a lot of hours, and a bunch of whatever free time you've got.

But you made following hockey a lot more fun -- and funny.

Just wanted to say thanks.

(And that I hope we trade both Tits for a solid stay-at-home defenceman -- as in, two tits for a big pole; consider trading Markov for a crash-and-bang scoring forward if we could land a Corey Perry in that kind of deal, and that we don't break the bank for Plekanec. But plenty of time for that kind of talk. After the season you've had, FHF + GG11, you deserve Stanley Cup-style kudos from all of us)
