Trouble Bruin: Free Falling Habs versus Boston Game Preview and Open Thread


Oh hell, it's the Bruins. Usually I'd be all sorts of wound up angry for a tilt with those black and gold wearing fuckers from lower Vermont, but based on the current rudderless Chocula version of the Habs (remember the day before the Red Wings game? Glory Days!!!) I'm assuming we're looking at playing Wicked Witch of the West to the Bruins big pail of water ce soir. Witch way does this one go?

Make yourself a Sandwitch: Game time at the Bell Centre cauldron is 7:00 pm. Do mine eyes deceiveth me, or is that another CBC broadcast, along with RDS and the blatant homerism of NESN.

It's Witchcraft: Habs on longest losing streak of the year at three games, with last night's mess versus Philly fresh in their minds. Bruins on their longest losing streak of the year too after dropping one to Buffalo last night.

Spellbinding: On the Habs, the offensive wizardry isn't exactly overwhelming. "Much maligned" Scott Gomez showed that he does indeed make a difference to this team. Max Pac played with an entirely different mindset than 2009 Max Pac and looked good. Pleks and Cammy have look cursed lately (with a bad case of the stone handed Moen?) but both had points last night. Benny Pouliot looks more and more like a keeper all the time, huh? Bruins win with the fat wizardly toad Tim Thomas's goaltending and the giant troll Chara's defending, but rampaging orc Milan Lucic is having a great season so far, on pace for 40 plus goals. It helps that David Krejci is also off to a superb start, on pace for more points than any Hab.

Toil and trouble: Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask is having a rough season, with only two wins in ten games. What of Blake Wheeler, who is pointless in 5 and limping along with 10 points in 29 games? On the Montreal side, the struggles of PK are well documented, and Big Tits is morphing into Kovy-lite with this funk.

Black cat thrown in front of the bus: Markov cursed. Boston's Trent Whitfield struck down with Achilles spell. Mark Stuart broke his right spell casting finger, and rookie Tyler "Kessel Trade" Seguin is questionable with flu-like symptoms.

A dash of newt, a hand of stone: Look, I don't want to pick on Travis Moen, because he's great at what he does. But what he does isn't "play on a scoring line". It's "play on a third or fourth line" where he can dig and hit and kill penalties with the best of them. But Chocula's insistence on handicapping Pleks and Cammy with Moen lately is killing me. Did he finally see the light and add Big Tits or Chicken to that line last night? Here's hoping. The latest line potion making looks like a Carbo special. I hated the Carbo line shuffle.

The Great Big Book of Evil: Our old friend Cornelius could have written the book on being a Bruins fan, but he's okay. He's like the Draco to our Potter; tries to be all evil and stuff, but in the end there is a grudging acknowledgment that we're good with each other.

The Witching Hour: Nothing good happens after midnight, folks. Get the hell inside and avoid confrontation with evil black and gold wearing beings. If you have to be out, hope that you run into a witch like this:

Oh shit. Everyone's given up.

moeman said...

Not me I was googling pictures of Elizabeth Montgomery. Scary good post.

Orangeman said...

I have another exam tonight so I'll be a ghost again (I tried there). It's probably a good thing anyway.

I believe, etc., etc.
GYFHG, and so on.

soperman said...

I went to see the "Wizard of Oz" last night at the Neptune. You know you are getting old when your former classmates are being cast as Auntie Em and not Dorothy.

Good tie-in, though. Maybe Chocula has some flying monkeys or will have a house dropped on him.

Orangeman said...

Btw, very nice work this morning with the Homer review Moe and GG. That shit should not go uncongratulated.

WV: laverdi. Laundry day in France.

iRiRi said...

1. Love that pic, GG! Green is def JM's colour.
2. Liked what I saw from top 2 lines last night so there's that.
3. GYFHG!

*sends positives vibes*

lawyergirl77 said...

The pics are awesome!!

Now where's my tag wishing me a happy birthday?? *pout* [/whine]

the Maritimer said...

Happy birthday LG77, a fellow Saggitarian!
Mine's coming up in 5 days. Bummer being born this close to Christmas.

moeman said...

R.I.P. Blake Edwards. May heaven be filled with 10s.

Orangeman said...

Happy birthday LG! So you've got one of those close to Christmas birthdays, eh?

Moey said...

Happy Birthday LG! Hope you're having a great day!

lawyergirl77 said...

Thanks for the birthday wishes, guys. Was kind of a shitty day, but I'll live... if the Habs pull off a friggin' win tonight.

Otherwise, I may go thermonuclear on the joint. First time I go since October... I'm antsy.

iRiRi said...

Good news! They found some of the stolen Pat Burna jerseys.

moeman said...

Be nice for a Flames to take a nice hard run at Celine to make him STFU.

iRiRi said...

SQUID!!!

moeman said...

Squid!!!

moeman said...

Nice sustained effort.

60 minutes of that please.

moeman said...

That was a hook?

PFK, next time hit the guy in the face.

moeman said...

McCreary again?

moeman said...

Max Laps!

iRiRi said...

MAX!

Steve said...

I cant see, instead of sending all that money to Afghanistan and all other shit holes, why not make a universal hockey broadcast for all the people of Canada. Build the country through universal hockey. I am so demoralized when I read the Toronto Star the day after a game and they do not cover the Habs, not even a win lost fine print crap,

moeman said...

WTF!? is in that witCHes brew?

Piss? Vinegar? don cherry's 1979 velvet suit?

moeman said...

PatCHes playing some nice positional hockey (corners, front of net, skating back).

Keep it going boys, do it for LG!!!

moeman said...

Nice playmaking by, PatCHes.

Steve said...

@orangeman I am watching one of your sites the sound is french but the vision is all CANADIAN.

sO I am all shilla humndida.

moeman said...

Cheap ass goal.

heely says TFS™ is use to sitting in a rocking chair all night.

Stupid hnic fuck.

moeman said...

bob cold is getting excited.

The Gate To The Groin For Yannick Bertrand said...

Shit. We need some "late-period-goal" antidote.

wv: medic. MEDIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIC

Steve said...

I cant speak the lingo but pFK HIT A BRICK

moeman said...

WhyTF? are these players attacking PFK for a clean hit? cheery vengeance? collie campbell's boy sits after taking a cheapshot. Weird, just weird.

The Gate To The Groin For Yannick Bertrand said...

PATCHES!

moeman said...

PatCHes!

Suck that heely, you stupid fuck.

Steve said...

pATCHES

Steve said...

Fuck Boston we own them untill all those leaf draft picks grow pubic hair. Its the Philisys we need to beat for the cup

Moey said...

Why is the audio screwed up on CBC?

moeman said...

heely earlier said (before chara crosschecked and slashed PatCHes before his goal) that Rechi will "tell the Habs what he thinks of PFK's clean hit" on some smaller Bruin. Weird. For the record, heely ws also the one that told don cherry (who gleefully repeated it) that "more than 5 players were going to get Subban". Sick fucks man, sick.

moeman said...

@Moey, "Why is the audio screwed up on CBC?"

bob cold's hearing aid keeps falling out.

moeman said...

ex-Bruin and nutjob milbury is pissed off with Max Laps' goal and calls him a fraud and wants his smirk swiped. Thats your cbc at work kids. Sick fucks.

remember when the Bs were tough and bad and played hard hitting hockey. milbury's slip is showing and now he suggests he'd do something. Note he was smirking. Sickening.

Moey said...

I wish PK would check Milbury right through that TV screen.

moeman said...

Whippfied? milbury you sound pussified you pathetic slug. Beat someone with a shoe and get it out of your fucking system. (Nice of pj stock to call out hnic's Bruins bias). YeeouCH!

iRiRi said...

Ahhhhhh. I missed it. *sadface*

Moey said...

@moe,

Yeah, PJ says "we sound like Bruin's fans." No shit Sherlock. At least he realized it.

moeman said...

Why is hnic so worried about Boston being on their game? Are they chanelling NESN? bob cold just said the "Bruins are looking out for him", meaning PFK. Why?

The Gate To The Groin For Yannick Bertrand said...

I'm just going to throw this out there, and I know I'm going to sound like a crazy roller-coaster of emotions Habs fan here, but would anyone else be up for a AK trade right now?

I figure his stock is at least decent, not sure what we could get back for him. Not saying we do it now because he's slumping, more-so because I imagine it'll happen eventually anyways.

Closer to the All-Star break more sense. Wonder what we could get for him.

moeman said...

@Gate To The Groin, I love Tits but I could handle him being traded in a package deal for Brad RiCHards.

moeman said...

Two very ugly goals by the Bs. hnic is happy though, so thats nice.

Moey said...

Fuck. You saw that coming.

iRiRi said...

How many times is this fool going to remind us that Bruins are leading by JUST one?

moeman said...

Fucking Eh! Squid!

iRiRi said...

Squid?!

moeman said...

heely denigrates Squid. Go figure. cbc/hnic, sickest fuck around.

moeman said...

CBC = Canadian Bruins Corporation...and it took a wad like pjstock to tell the truth.

iRiRi said...

I obviously meant "Habs are leading by JUST one" at 8:30

fezworth said...

Is it just me, or does this feel a little like a playoff game? So far, a good game in general.

(I have it on mute right now)

soperman said...

how could that be offside? he was on the bench

moeman said...

bob cold can pronounce Stroumboulopoulos, yet fucks up Lapierre?

moeman said...

Gio!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

fezworth said...

Beauty!

soperman said...

woooooooooooooooooooooooo

iRiRi said...

Gio!!!

moeman said...

Wicked work by Mex on that goal!

Steve said...

Fuck boston fuck them and serve their lobsters at red lobster on special

iRiRi said...

So this is what it's like to have 2 scoring lines?

All we're missing is the mandatory wings goal by CHicken!

soperman said...

bob cole is the worst announcer ever

moeman said...

Is marc recchi still mad and yippin'?

Steve said...

fuck johnny boychuk, get a name that does not sound like a cartoon

moeman said...

Another Bruin dives. Embarrassing. BTW, I worked with boychuk's Mom. She was so proud of her son. Not sure she liked that dive. Very un-Bruin-like. Maybe milbury will be mad and bang a shoe on pj's head or maybe he'll just be a pussy and whine like don cherry.

Steve said...

Everything is all right

moeman said...

Also, Go Flames!

soperman said...

maybe Pilsbury had a srtroke

Steve said...

@orangeman and your millions of citrus fans, the link works, thank you, I have not have so much fun since I climbed the pole to get free cable, or the time I got free satellite for years because putting your IT in India is not always a win win.

Steve said...

Moey said...

Milbury is calling us cockroaches. This coverage is a disgrace. We should bombard the CBC with complaints.

soperman said...

COCKROACHES! are these assholes on cbc?

moeman said...

2 points for PatCHes, so far. He's the man.

milbury calls the Habs cockroaches. Classy cbc/hnic commentary.

fezworth said...

No, this is great! I love that he's calling the Habs cockroaches. If Mike Milbury is that pissed off on HNIC, imagine what the Broons are thinking! I hope they spend the whole 3rd period trying taking penalties on Subban.

The fact is, the more people are dumping on the Habs, the better they're playing.

Steve said...

Milbury the George W Bush of GM

moeman said...

Realize kidz that the hnic gig is all milbury has. You think being called out as a Bruins hack on national teevee is going to just glide off a sick fuck like mad mike? He stewed between periods and pulled a piece of corn out of his shit and dropped a cockroach comment on the Canadiens. Smirking milbury, a cherry protege, represents exactly what the cbc/hnic wants. You think mclame could've said something? Nope, because he will be sucking don's shrivelled dick on Saturday. I've been saying it for years, they are sick fucks. Love your leaf and stay classy cbc.

Number31 said...

I just got in. I could kiss PK for that hit. BRICK FUCKING WALL. Komisarek could never do that cleanly... But that shit about fighting after a clean hit pisses me off.

Also Mike Milbury is a cockroach. One that needs to be whacked repeatedly with a shoe.

Moey said...

Was it HF29 or HF10 last year during the playoffs that said the Habs were the cockroaches in Bettman's basement? So let's take it as a compliment, it means WE'RE NOT FUCKING GOING AWAY.

You have no idea how much I want a cup.

soperman said...

pilsbury sounded pretty laid back after the break. maybe someone told him to "chill". maybe price

Moey said...

This kills me. It's called HNIC and yet they're all rooting for an American team. Fuck me.

moeman said...

@Moey, and honourable, professional organization with a modicum integrity needs to cheer for no one and just present the game as so-called experts. cbc/hnic is a farce. Sad thing is they know it and they know what they are doing. They are disgusting from the top down.

moeman said...

heh, Savard falls (erm, dives) and yup, a call.

iRiRi said...

KILL KILL KILL

Orangeman said...

I'm back! Good to see things are working out here.

So far.

soperman said...

did you hear healy in the background? he seemed pretty certain chara was going to score

Moey said...

@moe,

It's a given they shouldn't be rooting for either side, but if it was any other Canadian team they'd be McSplooging all over them. Personally I think it's political. They hate Quebec.

moeman said...

bob cold, 'another packed crowd'. Wake up you old fool.

Orangeman said...

FYI, might need some legal help from the hosts here as I'm dealing with a 2nd straight night without heat and my landlord whom I just called assured me it was on and I'm just hallucinating but he'll 'drop by' later to see what's up.

The Gate To The Groin For Yannick Bertrand said...

Remember when we used to dislike two-goal leads? How spoiled were we?

moeman said...

bob cold says the players are jawing at each other. What a waste of breath that wad is. Is heely still lurking around?

soperman said...

@ orange

that is what happens when pilsbury is your landlord and you put your habs flag in the window

moeman said...

Barely a bump and bob cold wets his already wet diaper. What a stooge.

moeman said...

Finally, the 'lots of time left' quip. mcstooge strikes again. Too bad TFS™ isn't working on a shutout you senile old cbc douchebag.

Orangeman said...

How on god's green earth is that a penalty? Maybe I need a replay, but I've seen the Broons commit much worse in the 5 mins I've been watching (not saying they deserved a penalty either).

soperman said...

two minutes for standing next to a klutz

iRiRi said...

COME THE FUCK ON. I CAN'T TAKE THIS ANYMORE.

Moey said...

Benny is coming into his own. Good for him.

WV - aspherp. I hope Milbury gets asherp, sounds itchy and painful.

iRiRi said...

*pukes*

iRiRi said...

Is it me or is Cole is a little more enthusiastic now?

moeman said...

Habs are playing The System.

Number31 said...

Piss off McMoustache.

moeman said...

iRiRi, bob cold gets excited when his diaper is really wet and full.

moeman said...

95 comments to meth cream kidz!

iRiRi said...

No shots in the last 9 minutes.

moeman said...

The Boston Black Flags couldn't kill the Canadiens cockroaCHes.

Fuck you milbury and your hnic crew of sick slugs.

iRiRi said...

W00t! We're off to see the wizard!

iRiRi said...

And of course, fucking CBC doesn't bother showing the three stars. Assholes.

Orangeman said...

I'm glad they won and everything (see, 1 win, 1 loss, 1 win, 1 loss, 3 wins, 3 losses) but seriously this team has not scored a single EN this season and don't really seem interested in trying besides Price. You know, the best defence is a good offence.

Moey said...

How terribly disappointing for the crew at HNIC. Hope they all have bad dreams tonight and wet their beds.

moeman said...

Sam Roberts rules. bob cold drools.

moeman said...

Can we love PFK anymore? A perfect interview.

I know, he'll be slagged by the anti-PFK klan but hold strong PFKid! If a class D stud like Lidstrom says you're gonna be a good one, absorb it, use it, be yourself man.

moeman said...

mad mike is not over it, a hack will always be a hack. Keep embarrassing yourself you nutjob.

soperman said...

montreal is a terrific team. suck up

Orangeman said...

I can't believe how far TSN and CBC have gone to defame PK. He's a goddamned rookie first of all, second he's going to be a Team Canada vet for sure. I just can't remember a player, rookie or not, being so consistantly attacked by the English media in Canada.

lawyergirl77 said...

WOOOOOOOOOO! I DON'T HAVE TO RECAP A LOSS!! wooooooooooooooooooo!!!

moeman said...

0-man, its the jersey and in some cases the colour of PFK's personality. See kidz, I knew some of you thought I'd say skin. Let's not go there and be all mike milbury-like.

Anonymous said...

I swear Cole said "He shat the puck" tonight. Damn vodka keeps fucking up my ears.

moeman said...

B O N N E F Ê T E LG77!!!

soperman said...

Bonne Fete LG77? Great present. Congratulations.

Number31 said...

I have enough gray hairs.

moeman said...

Regardless of the sickening cbc/hnic bias and even sicker commentary, a good game betwixt true rivals and a great goalie match.

Number31 said...

Someone at HI/O has a nickname for the new line: GIGOMAX

HabsFan29 said...

just home from my xmas party. great work 10 and GG!! great work Habs!!

i need to go to a Christmas party every game

Mr. natural said...

Millbury called the Habs cockroaches on national TV!?

WTF, we should retaliate, other than just always beating the Bruins.

Didn't see game but it's a "W", sweet!
