6-2-1: Against all Aulds: Habs/Isles Game Preview and Open Thread


My apologies to Moe, the FHF and the rest of the world.

How Can I just let you walk away...


Ok, time's up. It's 5 pm and we've got to put this thing up.

So:

Where: On a Long Island off a bigger one.

When: In like 5 minutes.

Hot: The Habs, not including USA! USA! (my new term for Gomez and Gio)

Cold: USA! USA! Dwayne Roloson on that Halpen goal; Dwayne from a Different World.

New: We all get to meet Alex Auld tonight. He played some decent hockey in pre-season but I can tell you first hand he's screwed up my last two hockey pools. Why I chose him is for another day.

Old: Doug Weight loves to play at the Bell Centre because he was buddies with Alexander back ion the day. Good thing he's back home tonight.

What else can I say? A win tonight and the Habs are a lock for the President's trophy.

Anything you wanna get off your chest? Tell me. I'm here.

No apologies required as I'll never parody phil collins.

Otherwise, I'd like RaCHel Ward against my CHest.

I gotta say, Bauld looks a little too disinterested there. Although I suppose the candid photo of his "O" face won't exist until after he schools the Fishsticks tonight.

it's 80's week here at FHF!

ok kidz I am going out for dinner soon so you'll be without me most of this game. it's a family dinner so that means a good 3 hours of drinking. i love my family. maybe i'll be back for the third. if only the preview told me what time the game started i'd have an idea

be excellent to each other

Halpern and Squid playing on shabbos. I don't know how I feel about that.

Steve said...

with that graphic you prove it does not have to be dirty, thats sexy

And Chicken might think about this, he went 5th overall in draft year.

moeman said...

PleXXXE!!!

Dainer's Hubris said...

PleXXXe!
The PP will be back over 20% before we know it

Dainer's Hubris said...

no kidding GG.....fishsticks for seder seems kinda budget.

moeman said...

heh, Houde wakes up BB.

Wonder if Wang (best owner name in the NHL) will fire the marketing team or maybe give them a second CHance and do a Go Habs Go ticket blitz. BTW, typing blitz made me think of CHeesy blintzes.

kevincrumbs said...

Fuck, how long did they have us pinned in our own zone towards the end of the first there? Two minutes? Seven minutes? Jesus...

GoldenGirl11 said...

@DH
Mmmmmm, fish-sticks and charoset

Dainer's Hubris said...

holy crap, PK's balance, strength, positioning, patience....
jungle fever man-crush here

kevincrumbs said...

Bad looking PP here and unimpressive 2nd so far. Still seem to be stuck in our zone a lot.

RiRi said...

Gotta love PleXXXe.

Dainer's Hubris said...

oyoyoy....been staring at the preview for hours, and it's only now just occurred to me who Weight's friend Alexander is. And so again, oyoyoy!

Dainer's Hubris said...

what a shit period! outshot 13-4? hopefully Gill woke them up a bit. Kinda funny watching him hold that Isle at arm's length so his wild swings couldn't even reach Hal's shoulders

RiRi said...

CHicken!

I was just about to switch to the Als game...

Dainer's Hubris said...

Doing the CHicken dance in the living room!

orangeman will be a vampire soon said...

Just got attacked by a bat. I just wanted to throw that out there on this Eve of All Hallows Eve.

By a bat.

Go Habs Go!

Moey said...

Left Mr. Moey inside with a plate of food. That'll keep him happy. Men are such simple creatures.

So kids, how do we look? I'm listening to CJAD under the cover of darkness on the balcany.

HabsFan29 said...

can't tell you how awesome it is to come home to see a minute left and a 3-1 lead

what'd i miss?

RiRi said...

Not much, 29.

GoldenGirl11 said...

A bat??????

Dainer's Hubris said...

Moey, it was a game meant for radio!
But Auld was truly fantastic.

HabsFan29 said...

checked the box score and see we had a PP goal. that can't be right

First overall IN THE LEAGUE. fuck me it's all downhill from here

L Dude should be in bed said...

Just checking in to let you know I've begun the process of staking claim to the internet domain chrisleeisaratfacedfuck.com

So don't bother yourselves doing the same.

Auld was sharp. .750 hockey. With no Markov and no PP. That's pretty fucking awesome.

In your face, Tony Marinaro. In your faaaace. He of little faith in the Bauld to do his job and our Team D. What's the next put-down eh? "They played the Islanders, again" instead of "Hey they beat teams they should be beating"?

Also, LOL to the end of the Als game. Clownshoes.

soperman said...

It's Saturday morning, I am 50, we are heading to the airport, we are going to the game tonight, and the Habs are playing great. What could be better. Oh yeah I am going for a beer at FHF HQ (aka Hurley's).

the Bare Ruth said...

can't stop checkling at that poster GG, brilliant! All that's missing is a puck speeding toward them which might explain why he looks so distracted.
But against all aulds indeed, 'rusty' Aulde (as in Ye 'Aulde' Gentleman Goaltender) was solid. I was watchning on an Isles feed, so I had no idea. The commentators spent 95% of the game talking about what the Isles were doing well. According to their pbp, Auld made only one or two good saves, the rest were 'great shot by Traveres' or 'a rocket from Douchnewski'.

#1 in the league bros and sissas!! suck on that, leaf! It doesn't mean anything yet, because it was accomplished on the shabbos and may only be validated after sundown tonight. And, as CHokilla says "we haven't won anything", it even behooves him to offer us a 'yet'.

HabsFan29 said...

Happy Birthday sop!!!! may the Hurleys beer bring us good luck

GoldenGirl11 said...

@Ruth
A puck!! Yes! I think I may have to make the change and repost.

@Soperman
Happy birthday! 50 and a grandfather. Impressive. They'd better win for you.

soperman said...

Hurley's should at least dull the pain if les boys don't play well, but I am confident they will win!

Dainer's Hubris said...

@ moeman - with CHicken possibly playing his way off the "Colder than Roloson's post-penalty shot stare-down" list, are you really going to be able to resist the Susudio parody?

moeman said...

Bonne Fête 50.

@DHub, believe me I can resist but maybe a Habs vs leaf game could inspire a 'You can't hurry Cups" or a "Somethings in the ACC air tonight and it reeks" parody.

bea.habs.fan said...

happy BD soperman!

will miss the game tonight as I will be at a sexy Halloween party (mostly girls wearing skin tight skimpy clothes while their hubbies drool over each others wives - and me)

was hoping to read the preview but guess it's too early.
or there's not just nothing to say about the PANTHERS

Dainer's Hubris said...

Don't worry moe, that wasn't a request.
Can't Hurry Cups - big guffaws, and an asterisk for the super Supremes. That was my brother's absolute favourite song until the Backstreet Boys came along. He doesn't exactly have discerning tastes. He even owns a Maple Leafs tuque, from a case of beer I think, but who wouldn't throw that shit in the garbage?
