CHrunCHing numbers ~ Habs vs Thrashers ~ Game Preview and Winnie Cooper appreciation Thread







Everyone is talking numbers. Math is fun and easy. Let's try some. 3 games multiplied by no fucking goals equals sweet fuck all. Sharpen your skates and your pencils boys cuz we need a win. OK, we don't actually need one as bad as say the Thrashers or the leaf but being rational, we don't want to end the season facing those latter Fuckfaces holding the playoff cards. Odds are still in the Habs favour but its no time to get CHomfortably numbered. Even Joey Juneau would tell you it isn't calCHulus out there. Pick a branCH betwixt Ambition to Win, Distraction by Danica, Uglification of the Standings, or total Derision if they fucking lose. Carey the two points and GYFHG!







CHraps ~  No one is hot on RDS or TSN (19h30), but Danica makes counting up to 21 fun.







The UnaCHountables ~ Too many too mention. Score already.








ZilCH ~ Zero is on the line for the opponent from Atlanta. OK, they aren't mathematically out yet.




186.05 ~ Minutes and seconds since someone last scored. Remember who it was? Remember 1949? Remember 'The Wonder Years'?





They can be Zeroes ~ ATL (32-31-12) shutout MTL (40-29-7) in their last game.
Tumbling Dice ~ Still lots of injured players.

0.4% is Almost Null ~ Golf leaf Golf!
31 is a lonely number ~ TFS™ and our own Esther are both goalies, one is an FHFemme, the other is starting in net tonight.

Its in Descartes ~ "One more time. It's simple. Habs win tonight and tomorrow. Canes lose tonight and tomorrow (against Habs). Habs secure playoff spot". ~ LDude, a card who can be dealt with.
3.14159 26535 89793... ~ Sorry Steve.

Spin at 45 RPM ~ Rolling out a song parody soon …
I think women are tasty, but they're always tryin' to wa$te me

And make me burn my CHandle right down,
But baby, baby, I don't need no ice in my Royale CHrown.

'Cause all you FHFers is low down gamblers,
CHeatin' like I don't know how,
But baby, baby, there's fever in the Habs house now!

This low down bitCHin', got my poor fingers itCHin',
You know you know the Steve is still wild.
Sharon baby, I can't stay, you got to roll me 
And call me your fun loving' guy.

Today I was in a hurry, I never stop to worry,
Don't you see the time FHFlashin' by.
GG honey, gets no FHF money, she's all golden and sweet and fine.

Say now, Anon, you're the rank outsider,
You can be mcsplooge's partner in CHrime.
But buddy, you can't stay,
You can't roll me and call me the FHFumbling' guy,
Go fucking roll thee and watCH me enjoy Carey Price'.

Oh, my, my, my, you're the lone crap shooter,
Playin' the field ev'ry night. Buddy, can't stay,
You can't roll me, can't call me Pants! tumbling' guy,
Blogroll me but don't call me the Habs hockey clay dice.
Go fucking roll thee. Go fucking roll thee.

HabsFan29 said...

@anon - it means moe is working diligently on the math involved in the preview

in the grand words of Chevy Chase as Gerald Ford "I was told there would be no math"

the Maritimer said...

Is it wrong for me to hope the leaf win tonight against the Sabres? I'd rather not have them breathing down the Habs collective necks. I've got this feeling that tonight's Canadiens game is going to a shootout. Even a point would be good.

Steve said...

Please no more math, I dont even want to see numbers of the sweaters tonite.

Steve said...

Every Leaf win is a Boston loss in the draft, but having them mathematically eliminated, priceless.

ti-cul said...

@ Maritimers, doesn't matter what happens below us, all we have to do is fucking win. Score at least one mother fucking goal (I forgot I can count that much)

Steve said...

Totally Awesome Moeman, and GG, love the tumbling dice.

L Dude is obviously a Math prof at McGill.

Bill 101 said...

Time to reject the null hypothesis FFS.

GYFHG!!

HabsFan29 said...

man this post keeps CHanging by the minute. well done

moeman said...

Finally done (parody too). Blogger formatting rolled me.

Clinton said...

I thought my laptop was broken after I saw more hot CHicks the second viewing. Yeah! I look at this blog more than once a day! Problem with that? There is not enough meth in the world to make me feel good about this team now. GO EXPOS!

moeman said...

Bonus 4 U kidz, new FHFunny.

Moey said...

@moe,

Your Sharon link does not compute. I assume you mean Sharon Stone? Ha! Mr. Moey's fave too. I think he's seen Basic Instinct 2000 times.

On another note, how about Gomez and AK46 straight up for Koivu and Selanne? *fuming*

McPhee said...

Geez you guys are depressing!

Why not start to spread the pipelines of saliva which are spilled anually concerning the playoff matchups? We've been cramming a month's worth of talk in the two days of rest between the 82nd final buzzer of the year and puck drop for game 1, care to start a little early this time around?

Who's breathing down our neck for a playoff spot? FFS, try putting yourself in their shoes, 5 points out (of 8th place if you're the Whalercanes), no tie-break, got to make up 6 points in 6 games, what would you say? Game over, forget it, that's what you'd say. So why the turnaround?

Let it go. TO is at 0.4%. No is allowed to talk about them in the playoffs untill they rolled a 200-faced die and tried to hit 69. Or tried to guess a card out of a 200 card deck.

Grrr. I bet TSN is infinitely more optimistic about our "playoff chances".

I'm feeling a wind of a 3-2 loss tonight. Hey, at least we score in this game...

moeman said...

Thx Moey, fixed. Fucking Blogger is snake eyes today.

lawyergirl77 said...

@McPhee - while your Polyanna attitude can sometimes be refreshing, I've gotta ask... why do you come here so often if you find us so damned depressing??

Pouring over postseason matchups and qualifications for the playoffs are what sports fans across the globe do when the regular season is almost at an end (unless, of course, they're polishing up their golf clubs along with their favourite players).

Why I'm not happy with where the team is right now: I find that, too often, the Habs just limp into the playoffs. IMHO, the last 10 games of the regular season are when a team prepares itself for the postseason.

If the Habs' playoff preparation includes three consecutive shutouts, then may I humbly suggest that it's not exactly a plan that inspires confidence. I'm sick of limping into the playoffs, being down 3-1 to an opponent and praying for a miracle comeback. Even if it comes, I think it empties the tank prematurely (especially for goalies) and sets a team up for a crash in later rounds.

But, hey, if you're willing to share some of your Kool-Aid (spiked liberally with vodka and/or gin) with me, I'd be game to imbibe...

iRiRi said...

Great work, moe!

I've got Gio scoring at 8:25 into the 1st period. Or I'll take anyone at this point!

Score You Fucking Habs Score!

Orangeman said...

When I was in Korea I had a 5th grade student who looked exactly like Winnie Cooper (look closely, or should I say 'up', her eyes are somewhat Asian-y). Anywho, I always called her Winnie so one day my Korean co-teacher decided she wanted to see this Winnie Cooper for herself during class. The Computer was hooked up to a giant TV for the whole class to see, and her fingers typed faster than I could run across the room to stop her. Up came picture after picture of a very adult Winnie Cooper posing, while in a classroom environment, not very academically.

Long story short, I now have to alert my neighbourhood police office when I move into a new place.

GOMEZ HATTRICK TONIGHT!!!!!!

moeman said...

heh, Péladeau, Nordick lover and owner of TVA = loser.

Steve said...

@O man - great story, I assume you know about the second story of Itawaon, as usual we had Mexican't results, a broken arm, a gold card membership, and a 4 figure bill.

Steve said...

@MChpee - you are preaching to the choir, but I am ready to say, stop singing and SIC.

moeman said...

So what does blob mackenzie pull out of his fat ass? "The leaf are young, they have a future, leave them alone!" I may have to redefine Burkkake.

kevincrumbs said...

Totally random but do the rest of you guys find that you pretty much start hating all the other 29 teams in the league as you get older? I mean, the teams out West don't bother me that much since we barely see them but I sincerely wish all the Eastern Conference teams would fuck off and die, even the supposedly harmless ones like the Panthers.

Go Habs Go.

moeman said...

@kc, yup, except the Canucks.

Steve said...

Since no one else will say it

Thrash the thrashers

GYGHG

I do not want to see Mex score, I do not want him on the team next year, he is the most useless fuck ever to play hockey on a team that should never suffer such a despoilment of tradition.

Anonymous said...

Anyone have a link to the game? ATDHE isn't showing them anymore.

Steve said...

IF anyone is in trouble out there

try Justin.tv you gotta find it but its there, try sports

Steve said...

do not get to excited cause all I am getting is a Hd still of Chicken

moeman said...

No denis gauthier! Habs'll win!!

HabsFan29 said...

ok ONE GOAL. FOR WINNIE COOPER

Moey said...

Agree moe, anyone in the West except the 'nucks. Actually I'm rooting for the Ducks <3.

My money is on Philly in the East if anyone can take the fucktard Bruins they can. I wouldn't lose any sleep over Philly winning the cup, the B's winning it doesn't bear thinking about. It would ruin my summer.

iRiRi said...

Let me get one one more prediction in: Wings. FOR PATCHES.

the Maritimer said...

@moeman, best parody in a while, being a huge Rolling Stones fan I appreciate some lyrics I can understand. Favourite Stones song of all time = Midnight Rambler, the live version.

I watched OTR, guests today were Rob Ray and Chris Nilan. Man, old Knuckles looks really bad. I'd say he's been through the wringer a couple of times. Best fighter the Habs ever had, except maybe Fergy.
Nilan and Ray agreed that the Chara hit messed up the team because nobody could or would address it. Nilan said he would have fought Chara, regardless if he won or lost. Unfortunately, I have to agree with him (them), it is a reality that you need someone who can respond to such incidents. The Habs are not built for that nor is their coach able to deal with it. What to do? Fucked if I know. That's what they pay Gauthier for. I just hope I don't have to watch three more years of beatings at the hands of the likes of Boston and Philthy.

moeman said...

@Moey, yeah Teemu & Saku raising the silver mug would be fun but the mediots would find a way to give Burkkake credit.

I've been saying it for years but a Habs vs. Nucks SC Final would be sick fun. Bonus, Fuckface bettman would puke.

CHeering a ref? eesh.

iRiRi said...

That's right, crowd, keep schmoozing the ref!

iRiRi said...

PatCHes tweets: "LOVE how @KnucklesNilan30 said the habs should have signed him for the game vs Boston...#beauty"

Orangeman said...

Well, they've gotten through the first 2 mins without giving one up. They haven't done that in a while. So, uh, hooray!

moeman said...

Thx the M.

"Favourite Stones song of all time = Midnight Rambler, the live version." Agreed for their older stuff, close 2nd is 'Sympathy for the Devil". Modernish tune would be 'Respectable' or 'She's so cold'. Sweet licks.

Number31 said...

Oh-do-ya like interference much?

Steve said...

Since I cant watch the fucking hockey game, gonna weigh in on the Stones.

Best Song Exile on Main Street,

Next I gotta go with Satisfaction,
they are not giving it anymore, and the Stones nailed it in 64

McPhee said...

LG77 I totally agree, I can't believe how painful the last 18 years have been. There's a reason I sound chirpy and that's because I try to stay away from topics regarding the Habs that get me upset, such as pretty much everything that concerns the last 18 years.

Basically we are one year (this year) away from fully recovering for the black hole that hit us when we fired Serge Savard for the same stupid reason that led the entire city to agree that Casseau had to go.

So...yeah. In order to stop consuming myself with pure frustration I try to focus on the fact that we are now basically back to where we started rather than on the pain that it was to achieve that.

Because where we started is with Patrick Roy in nets and a team built with warriors with, not the scariest offence, but one where the goals could come from everywhere and also a solid defense. The right mix of veterans and rookies with a few shipers and a few bigger, uglier mugs. A backup whose job is not be thought of, and we're good. That combination can win the Cup on any given year if the stars align right in the playoffs (as in : after you beat washington and pittsburgh there souldn't be two more rounds of hockey to play, to quote an example chosen at random).

I hope this clears things up.

moeman said...

No wood on that Squid shot. He ain't 100%.

moeman said...

29 has let me know, to let ya'll know, that if/when the Habs score, its is a jacuzzi filled with meth-laced ice cream for all. You gots to pay UR own transportation.

iRiRi said...

Okay, let's do this, boys. FOR PATCHES.

Number31 said...

You'll notice McReally will work hard to not call anything...

the Maritimer said...

Street Fightin' Man

Sympathy For The Devil (agreed moe)

It's Only Rock 'n Roll

Couple of good tunes on Voodoo Lounge : Love Is Strong and Out Of Tears.

Bridges to Babylon : Out Of Control and Saint Of Me.

Mick and Keith didn't get along but they are musical geniuses. Must have been all the booze and drugs.

Orangeman said...

Hamr and Gomer on the PP. How could this possibly go wrong?

"Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it"

-EVERYONE WHO HAS WATCHED THE HABS THIS PAST WEEK.

Number31 said...

And there's the ever popular quick whistle by McReally.

HabsFan29 said...

winnie cooper was not impressed with that PP

Orangeman said...

Well, a post is much more than we've gotten in over a week. Baby steps.

Steve said...

@Maritimer well done

iRiRi said...

What is it with JM's aversion to using PFK on the PP?!

Number31 said...

iRiRi
Every time they actually scored on the PP, PK was out there with Wiz. Why are they not noticing this...?

moeman said...

I'm with ya on those the M.

I'll add 'Beast Of Burden' and adjacently Mick's duo with Peter Tosh on 'Walk & Don't Look Back', a fave of all time and the SNL live version is classic.

HabsFan29 said...

FINALLY!!!!!!

Steve said...

@Maritimer wrong link with pictures

Orangeman said...

It's like my first blowjob after Lent.

they're coming in bunches now

Oh, the seal is broken, bitches.

Number31 said...

GOAL HABS GOAL!

ti-cul said...

meh, what's the number after 2?

Orangeman said...

Ok, maybe I have a minute here to also quip that, like the goal, the bj was messy and involved alot of guys on their knees.

Ok, there. It's out of my system. Pun totally and completely intended.

iRiRi said...

@31 - Exactly! I love the PFK-Wiz PP unit!

moeman said...

We have a new FHF lucky CHarm in Winnie!

LeBuuuuut said...

Does anyone here have a link for the game? All of my usual places are empty. I want to see these strange things you call "goals".

Orangeman said...

I'm booooooooooooooored. I want another goal.

Orangeman said...

@buuuuuuut: One last time just for you. justin.tv (look up under habs, sports, etc) I don't like listing the exact sites too often as I know Homeland Security has this place on speed dial, or rather it's internet equivalent.

moeman said...

Fuck Kirk is hot!

Steve said...

@o man I am all over that site and just getting still pictures, are U watching there?

LeBuuuuut said...

Huh. I never used to have any luck with them and then ended up using other websites.

I need to learn French.

Orangeman said...

@Steve: Are you on ex-nordic's channel? I think location and traffic dictate quality which is why I'm somewhat hesitant to keep on passing on the link (not to you of course). It's skipping a bit tonight when it's usually perfect, so I'm not sure what's going on. Last week I had a hard time finding it, I had to dig real deep.

moeman said...

Good 'Habs with a Shotgun' 1st. Keep shootin'!

the Maritimer said...

After that second goal I figured all the FHFers would collectively jizz their pants. Looks like Orangeman beat them out of the gate for the win!

@Steve, no links, like Hitchcock, it's all left to the imagination.

One song I forgot about, Star, Star from Goat's Head Soup. Moeman you would have a field day with that one.

moeman said...

Thx the M. I'll CHannel it someday.

moeman said...

Its hockey-related.

moeman said...

Feels like The System™ is back.

Orangeman said...

I hope they don't think they're done. They still owe us at least 3 more. CHicken wings is the least they could do.

iRiRi said...

Too many men? There are the Habs I know and love!

HabsFan29 said...

we've got to be close to that too many men record now!

Anonymous said...

Moeman, that video makes my heart smile. The Ducks were the first hockey team that I loved.

moeman said...

meh, the only too many men in history that gingerly counted is;

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZbTlEKs3Jw

LeBuuuuut said...

Uh, that embarrassingly Duck-loving comment was from me.

Orangeman said...

So PK doesn't play the PP anymore?

Pourquoi says moi.

moeman said...

Parce-ce que says Jac que.

iRiRi said...

FIVE SECONDS OF PP TIME?! I JUST CAN'T.

Orangeman said...

@buuuuuuuuut: You were one vowel switch away from coming out of the closet, NTTAWWWT. My first jersey was the Sharks. Their first year, 1991. My second jersey was last year, an ill-fitting Habs (Muller) affair made in the back room of a hole in the wall in Steve's favourite place Itaewon in Seoul. In between was a real sweater, old-timey 50s style, found at a garage sale. Too small for me but I've got a niece and another little thing on the way next month.

Number31 said...

Why are these guys terrified of empty nets?

Orangeman said...

btw, Steve, you'd be shocked what has happened to Itaewon since you left. Hell, the difference while I lived there was stunning. Upscale restaurants, lesshooker clubs and even a legit massage/spa place or two. It's not your father's army area anymore. You have to go way up north near the border for that kind of, uh, viewer discresion type evening. Well, hooker hill still exists, but mostly as a directional point to the foreign market these days (nights are a different beast).

Orangeman said...

The opions expressed in my previous post don't necessarily represent the opinions of the poster or my sponsors. I went up to that seedy area to get dirt cheap prices on those winter toques with the animal head with matching paws for mitts for people back home. I played a dart game with a lady of the night with one these enseblems on the line. That's as dangerous as I get.

HabsFan29 said...

did you just see Gomer wind up and shoot?

/faints

moeman said...

29 is thin-blooded.

iRiRi said...

Those 11 seconds in the first were pretty awesome. Since then, not so much.

sadhabsfan said...

Pls Dog
Don't let 'em try 'n proteck a 2 goal lead.
History prooves it's not a recipee for success.

Number31 said...

Shaddup Kane.

moeman said...

leaf playoff odds still at 0.04%. Parade fuckers!

Number31 said...

Ryan Miller was quite the sieve today.

Number31 said...

HOW IS THAT A FUCKING DIVE?!

moeman said...

PFK!'s got rhythm. hnic will be ripping him for sure.

Orangeman said...

So automatic even up penalties now?

iRiRi said...

COME THE FUCK ON. How the fuck did they miss that?

HabsFan29 said...

WTF? FUCK?

Orangeman said...

Obvious high stick, obvious offside. But let's count the goal. That's good.

moeman said...

Three blind mice.

iRiRi said...

Surely, there will be a make-up call in our favour? Right?

Orangeman said...

Whenever anyone says the league is not against the Habs I want this on replay. That was the single most ridiculous non-call I've ever seen. Ok, Saku at centre ice one could argue that the ref was looking down ice. This is the puck carrier. It's a fucking joke. This league is a fucking joke.

Number31 said...

FOUR blind mice. What the FUCK were they talking about?! LOOK AT THE FUCKING SCREEN! It's only the size of a fucking house!

moeman said...

enthirtyone, methinks one of the linesmen tried to plead the case. He need a good lawyer. Anyone know any good lawyers?

HabsFan29 said...

CASH ONE. FOR WINNIE

Orangeman said...

This whole third period has been a handjob to the SE division. It's pathetic.

Orangeman said...

Oh, so the ref saw that. I understand.

Orangeman said...

I actually appreciate calm and patience because I often can't muster these up when it counts. But when your team is as screwed over as that how does JM just stand there and take it? Not a word. Not a head shake. There really is a time where you need to let your feelings known, if only to let your players know you got their back.

HabsFan29 said...

i'm tense

moeman said...

Tits untenses 29!

HabsFan29 said...

Empty net!!!

/ faints
// for real this time

Orangeman said...

Holy crap, an empty netter! I'm sure he'll be benched next game.

iRiRi said...

An empty netter FOR PATCHES! Praise Jesus!

iRiRi said...

They're removing Pavelec again? PAD THOSE STATS, HABS!

HabsFan29 said...

2.5 goals and a win! hallelujah!

iRiRi said...

A W is a W but I would of liked to see one of the "millionaires" score.

moeman said...

Winnie!

Orangeman said...

Shoulda been a shut out. I have to find a way to stay angry, otherwise there really is no reason to get up in the morning.

Number31 said...

Goodbye McReally. Should have been a shutout...

sadhabsfan said...

Winning recipe:
Exactly 4 ice cubes
Exactly 1 ounce each of rum, brandy, Triplesec, and Rose's lime juice.
Drink with a positive outlook = 2 points.
Been working on this for several games now. Perfected. GYFHG

lawyergirl77 said...

Well, damn. Happy with win, although it shoulda been a shutout.

@McPhee - makes sense now. I just can't do the blind optimism thing with these guys anymore. The Bleuet Bionique killed it.

moeman said...

sadhabsfan, who is Rose and where do I get her limes?

Also, is 29 still fainted?

Number31 said...

Price: Pouliot won a free donut from Roll Up the Rim. Players put that on the board for the guy who broke the drought.

Hamr gets a donut.

LeBuuuuut said...

Someone needs to roll 29 on his side so he doesn't die on us.

Orangeman said...

CJAD just played the audio replay of the first goal tonight along with "Hallelujah". Funnies.

Orangeman said...

TSN: Habs end longest goaless drought in 61 years for only 4th win in last 10.

Jesus christ. Take the small blue and white dick outta your mouth.

dwgs said...

I'm worried about Steve, it's been 2 hours and 21 minute since he posted. Perhaps he's fallen down and can't get up.

Orangeman said...

@dwgs: I take responsibility for pointing him towards the new red light district.

moeman said...

Maybe Steve is 29?

Orangeman said...

Media bias alarm!

TSN took the trouble to update their standings for the Caps/Canes game even though it ended significantly after the Hab game, yet they have not updated the Habs' points. Also, they have the highlights up and at the end they show the standings at the end, so obviously they know the game is over, yet haven't updated the Hab points there either (yet updated everyone else)!

Also, just to point out, the Canadiens have officially passed their total from last year (87). Yay?

iRiRi said...

It seems Gainey has had a little chat with Mex. No word if it happened near the St-Lawrence but he DID have a little pep in his step tonight.

Also, I really want someone in the media to ask why PFK gets so little PP time. I'm DYING to know JM's reasoning.

sadhabsfans said...

Could be that Steve is experimenting with his own winning drink recipe and it overwhelmed him with awesomeness.

Orangeman said...

@iRiRi: CJAD was questioning it, but I was too busy enjoying Winnie. You know, for the Habs and scoring and such.

Also, because I've been his biggest hater, Gomez did put in a good effort tonight. It totally doesn't negate everything else, but I'm a big enough man to admit it.

Number31 said...

According to Arpon Basu, Martin is seriously evasive on answering the "why no PK on the PP" question.

Um... Twirling rally towels in Toronto?!
