Pretty Hate Machine - Bruins versus Canadiens Game Preview and Open Thread

Hatred is the madness of the heart. - Lord Byron

The Bruins. Tonight. 7:30 on RDS, TSN-Habs and NESN. The first meeting since the black and gold went with their usual modus operandi bullshit 70's throwback tactics in front of their baying, loutish fans in that cheap-ass rink they own. Both teams remember the last meeting, but only the Habs remember that they've won 8 of 9 versus the their ancient rivals. Canadiens have won four straight, Bruins six. Revenge? Maybe. Hatred? Definitely. The Pretty Hate Machine starts now.

Hatred comes from the heart; contempt from the head; and neither feeling is quite within our control. - Alfred Schopenauer

The Bruins stir feelings of hatred more than any other. The Leafs? A hate born of national pride, but tempered by years apart. The Bruins and Canadiens have played more games against each other than any two franchises in NHL history and not one of them has been pleasant. Grown men froth at the mouth at the sight of a Bruins toque on the Metro or a Habs jersey in their local Southie pub. Familiarity breeds contempt; contempt begets hatred, hatred gets out of control quickly. Richard/Laycoe. Lafleur/Milbury. Nilan/Byers. Jonathan/Bouchard. Canadiens/Bruins always teeters right on the edge and it is the hate that does it.

To enjoy the things we ought, and to hate the thing we ought, has the greatest bearing on excellence of character. - Aristotle

Why do we hate the Bruins so? We hate because Eddie Shore was a dirty cheap-shot artist, because Jonathan, Wensink, O'Reilly and Milbury brawled their way through the 70's, because Esposito, Orr, Bourque and Neely were stars, because Neely always broke Montreal's back with a shot over Roy's glove, because Lucic demolished Komisarek, because Cheevers and Moog and Thomas and Frankie Brimsek gave the Canadiens fits. Because Bruins fans piss on visitors to their rink. Because the Boston Garden was a cramped, rat infested cesspool and the TD Banknorth visitors dressing room is the size of a closet. Because B's fans are proud of their team's lunchbucket, beat em in the alley ethos. Because for 100 years the Canadiens have emphasised Gallic flair, speed, skill and firewagon hockey and the Bruins have spent almost as long trying to choke the life out of it. We hate because Zdeno Chara is still among the league's best, because Tim Thomas is having an otherworldly season, because for all our taunts about Lucic being a talentless thug, he's on pace for almost 40 goals and we would kill to have someone like him.  We hate because being a Bruins fan shows a deficiency of character that can not be redeemed.  Because cheering for the Canadiens is a virtue, a guiding light, a truth. 

Let them hate, so long as they fear. - Lucius Accius Telephus

It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for something you are not. - Andre Gide

Why do the Bruins hate us so? Hatred is often born of fear - and the Canadiens as a franchise have often been something to fear. Many a Bruins team has been swept aside by a Canadiens team that was more talented, but it is the shared history of talented Bruins teams being upset by heavy underdogs (1971, 2002, 2004) or being beaten by the slimmest of margins when the talent equation was nearly identical (1977, 1979, 1989) due to bad breaks, boneheaded mistakes, or Forum ghosts that tears a seam in the Bruins heart. They hate because they cannot win. They hate because Montreal's light continues to shine against their dark. They hate because Montreal stands up to bullying and triumphs more often than they lose. They hate, because as Lord Byron noted, "He who surpasses or subdues mankind, must look down on the hate of those below. " For most of their existence, the Bruins have been subdued. Their hatred is for what the Canadiens were then, and are now. The Canadiens are not the Bruins.

We have enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us love one another. - Johnathan Swift

If you hate a person, you hate something in him that is part of yourself. What isn't part of ourselves doesn't disturb us. - Hermann Hesses

Both franchises hate because deep down, despite their divergent philosophies, there remains a part of the other in each. Montreal harbours a dark side that the Bruins bring out. Montreal fans revel in the memories of John Ferguson, tough-as-nails Dickie Moore, Larry Robinson's mystique as a fighter, Chris Nilan and John Kordic. The solution to Zdeno Chara and Milan Lucic was supposed to Georges Laraque. Shouts for Gauthier to call up muscle from Hamilton for tonight's game were deafening in some quarters. The Canadiens darkness is ever-present; nowhere does it manifest itself more clearly than in the days leading to a Boston game. In contrast, Boston's darkness has always needed the light to guide it. The Big Bad Bruins would have been no more than an afterthought without Orr and Esposito's offensive fireworks. Gentleman Jean Ratelle, Rick Middleton, Brad Park? All lauded for their exemplary play and conduct, despite their allegiance to black and gold. All the Lyndon Byers, Keith Crowders and Don Sweeney's of the world wouldn't have lifted the Bruins to Cup finals in the late 80's and early 90's without the talents of Ray Bourque. Even patron saint of overrated power forwards Cam Neely needed soft-as-tissue Craig Janney or passer extraordinaire Adam Oates. The current Bruins go nowhere without all everything centre Patrice Bergeron, smart vet Mark Recchi and Chara. Boston hates because no amount of bullying, brawling and thuggery wins without skill to guide it. Both clubs share parts of each other's religion, but never fully embrace the aspects they need from the other. They hate that part of themselves almost as much as they hate the image on the other side of the divide.

I hate victims who respect their executioners. - Jean-Paul Sartre

There is no honour in Milan Lucic fighting Mike Komisarek after Komisarek's shoulder was injured. Or in his engaging players already involved with others. Or his refusal to answer when called. There is no honour in Greg Campbell using a weapon on Tom Pyatt, or John Boychuk continuing to hit Jaro Spacek as he lay on the ice. There is no reason to respect Zdeno Chara's cheapshots, or Claude Julien's complaints or bush-league move of putting out goons to end a game. The Bruins have spent the better part of a century trying to smother the Canadiens in their sleep. There is no respect on their part, and as such, they deserve no respect in return. It's possible that the Bruins will win handily tonight; that they will bully and beat the Canadiens in scrums and on the scoreboard. That won't garner respect. Better Bruins teams than this one have fallen at the final hurdle. The Bruins have tried to be executioners to the Canadiens for their entire sorry existence and HAVE NEVER FINISHED THE JOB.  One should not respect an executioner.  One must refuse to be a victim.  Montreal time and again has refused.  They do so again tonight. 

My hate will die with you. - Robert the Bruce, Braveheart

Tonight, our hate lives again. Win or lose. First or second. Our hate sustains us until the next. Montreal has its weapons of choice. Boston has its own. Fuel for the Pretty Hate Machine is never in short supply.

Bravo! Bravo!

patron saint of overrated power forwards Cam Neely

oh god that's perfect

the Maritimer said...

Great philosophical preview.

I do still miss the stripper aspect of this site though. It was truly unique. As one of the sidebar quotes says: "Strippers and hockey. They truly are doing the Lord's work."

'Nuff said.

GoldenGirl11 said...

I need to lie down now. Just wow.

Steve said...

Awesome hate generator, love the album cover, when does it release to the public.

I love the never finished the job line.

Beating these fuckers is going to be a tough assignment. First the NHL has given headhunter licence out to anyone who plays Montreal. Second even when they deploy machete's our PP is not fearsome.
Third, fucking Chara's shot could punch a hole in one of our plyons.

I look forward to an epic game, fuck the playoffs, fuck the sport, this is a game for blood, for men to be men, and fuck the consequences.

Steve said...

Henry V at the Bell Center

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen in the greater Habs Nation,
now unable to battle
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon this March 8 2011 historical pivotal Hockey Game."

Chester said...

Epic, simply epic post.
I can feel my hate being tempered with the realization that thugs and bullies always lose in the end. At the end of the day the good guy always gets the girl with the big tits.
I still fucking hate anything in a Beaners uniform tho. I bet they all smell bad ...

Steve said...

Winston Churchill

If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.

We shall not flag or fail. We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in Boston, we shall fight on the ice and in the alley, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in Hamilton, we shall defend our island of Montreal, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the bridges, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.

Mark said...

Wow.

Steve said...

Knute Choucla

Well, boys ... I haven't a thing to say.
Last time, you Played a great game...all of you. Great game.
(He tries to smile.)
I guess we just can't expect to win ‘em all.
(Chocula pauses and says quietly.)
I'm going to tell you something I've kept to myself for years --
None of you ever knew Howie Morenz.
It was long before your time.
But you know what a tradition he is at Montreal...
(There is gentle, faraway look in his eyes as he recalls the boy's words.)
And the last thing he said to me -- "Chocula," he said -
"sometime, when the team is up against it -- and the
breaks are beating the boys -- tell them to go out there
with all they got and win just one for the Morenz...
(Chocula's eyes become misty and his voice is unsteady as he finishes, but his face remains expressionless.)
I don't know where I'll be then, Chocula", he said - "but
I'll know about it - and I'll be happy."

Mr. natural said...

"SIC and you're to blame you give hockey a bad name, bad name".

And if your gonna hate Broons what about Wayne Cashman?

Spent his entire career embarassing hockey everywhere.

GYMFHG!

iRiRi said...

*bows down*

Superb, 10!

GYFHG!

Steve said...

Take Pretzelsleg
GYGHG!

moeman said...

Another stoopid brooin;

"“They like to get in and shoot their mouths of and then when you hit them they’ll dive down and fall easy,” Marchand said of the Canadiens, who lead the season series between the teams 3-1.

Well okay, then.

And if the Habs or their fans are upset about the treatment reserved for non-combatants Jaroslav Spacek and Tom Pyatt, who found themselves tangling with beefier Boston opponents in the final stages of that game.

“They stir the pot, and they got what they deserved . . . whatever anyone’s mad about, they can suck it up, it’s not our fault,” said Marchand, who also loosed a few verbal barbs at his old World Junior teammate P.K. Subban, saying “he just likes to take runs at guys” and if he has a chance to avenge a spectacular open-ice hit that Subban laid on him last December, he will."

moeman said...

Points for creativity?

http://www.bruinshockeynow.com/bruinshabsbingocard.html

HabsFan29 said...

@moe - creativity maybe, but those squares are fucking making me angry

HabsFan29 said...

@Steve - you've had some great stuff today. the Winston and Knute comments were outstanding and should be acknowledged. i'm inspired

iRiRi said...

I hope we get an encore of THIS tonight.

Steve said...

Beauty hit, one of the best ever, clean, and I cant think of another butt check.

Jaybird said...

So how many games does Marchand get if he injuries PK tonight after saying he's coming for him?

Answer: Zero. See Campbell's son.

GYFHG!!!! Been waiting for this one.

Mr. natural said...

Really just reading all posts now PHucken' WOW!

You people are awesome. Hey where's orangie?

@10 will read your post when I get home but from the comment looks like you get a passing grade!

Steve said...

@29 thanks, 10 has put us all on war footing, we are London, the sirens are wailing the blitz is coming.

moeman said...

Jaybird knows, plus collie is in the crowd. Smoke bombs anyone?

Also, not the Bs but, still;

Moey said...

Two thumbs up 10!

moeman said...

Its Shrove/FHFat Tuesday, what are you FHFers giving up? Swearing? ScotCH? Coffee? Wine? Streaking? Cock punching? bob cold/fx?

moeman said...

That was post #29, for ex-Bruin Ken Dryden.

HabsFan29 said...

for FHFat Tuesday I'm giving up being Jewish

wait, that doesn't make sense

moeman said...

29, sense? Is it legal? What would Mom29 say? How is she BTW? Is she a Bruins hater like 100% of the FHFers?

HabsFan29 said...

Mom (then a member of the Weather Undetrground) was arrested in '69 for throwing a bomb through Johnny Bucyk's window. problem was mom was so high she didn't realize Johnny was on a road trip at the time

moeman said...

Wow. Apart from Ratelle (cuz of his nice hair) Bucyk was one of the better Bs and hard to hate. Please tell us she thought gary doak looked like a dink.

Gino Tomac said...

Without a doubt, the most fucking spectacular preview in a long fucking time.

FUCK THE BRUINS...but thank you Boston for continually assembling failing squads that legitimize our cry of FUCK THE FUCKING BRUINS!

Absolutely fucking inspiring HF10

Bill 101 said...

I liked that d-man with the wonky knees. His moves were downright Subban-esque.

Mr. natural said...

*sniff*(wipes tears of joy from eyes)

@HF10, thanks that was EPIC.

Maybe half their team will come down with explosive diarrhea before game time.

Die BROONS Die!

GYMFHG! KILL! KILL! KILL!

That is all.

moeman said...

ex-broon pjstuck on tsn; "if P.K. Subban starts taunting..."

Sure.

kevincrumbs said...

I hate the Bruins because they represent everything twattish about humanity. They're the drunken frat boys at the bar trying to start a fight at some perceived slight. They're those people you can't reason with, who will always choose brawn over brains.

Fuck the Bruins.

Orangeman said...

That was inspiring, 10. I saw NIN in 1999 at the Bell Centre (Molson Centre at the time for the granpas out there).
HEAD LIKE A HOLE
BLACK AS YOUR SOUL
I'D RATHER DIE
THAN GIVE YOU CONTROL

Let that be our boys' rallying cry for this evening. I'm skippin' school to see the whole game! Oooooh, I feel all sneaky and stuff.

ezzeloharr said...

What an amazing preview. Wow.

moeman said...

I once met Claude Julien at his cousin's wedding in Gatineau.

Seemed like a decent guy. He didn't ask me to tango and he had six pieces of cake.

Took a pic of him in the jon loo.

The bomb is about to drop, please GSM let it play in my stream.

moeman said...

gino reedux on tsn, Montreal skating onto the ice in boston. Sure.

the Maritimer said...

All the guests on OTR say the Habs will be bullied into submission tonight. Lucic and Marchand say the Habs initiate everything and they only respond accordingly. Wow, what assholes.

Here's hoping they all eat crow after tonight.

lehab said...

It may be all redundant but... great fucking post 10! I'm not sure how any habs fan can go a day without reading this blog. GYFHG!!!!!

wv= ainedi nother rum and coke

Steve said...

Fuck its a 7;30 start and I took the acid to peak at 8;30 Im fucked.

blob mackenzie says Bs have 'physical prowess'. Bought and sold.

McReally is reffin'. N31 will not be happy.

Go Isles!

Drop the fuckin' puck and while you're at it drop that ugly little shit-stained cub marchand.

iRiRi said...

Rask vs. Price

Where's Timmeh?

Steve said...

Glad to see they started the game early, I can just see sharks against dolphins on no, its a giant fucking squid and he is not wearing a Calamari sweater.

kevincrumbs said...

Stuck w/NESN tonight but at least the sound is off at the bar. Go Habs Go!

Steve said...

Alright the video has started but its all about footballs as large as my penis.

moeman said...

heh, tsn's main channel has curling.

kevincrumbs said...

Wow, slo-mo black & white of Spacek getting beat up as the intro. Stay classy, Bruins.

HabsFan29 said...

beer? poured
Whiskey shots? poured

*glug glug glug*

LET'S DO THIS FUCKER

moeman said...

heh, Bs know that Domicic Thomasek doesn't do well in Montreal, city of beautiful women. Roll up the Tim and win? What are the oods?

HabsFan29 said...

so basically we boo every Bruin now?

HabsFan29 said...

atta way Ryan!!

moeman said...

Whiteout!

LeBuuuuut said...

Nice job, kid!

moeman said...

Nice attempt on PFK's knee.

HabsFan29 said...

fuck you refs

Orangeman said...

So after everytihng last game, and the dirty hit there, the Habs get the additional penalty.

This league is a fucking joke.

moeman said...

heh, good one refs. Your boss must be in the crowd.

iRiRi said...

This is beyond bullshit.

LeBuuuuut said...

What an excellent play by Halpern to stop the wrap around.

moeman said...

DDD on the PK, wow.

iRiRi said...

So does Campbell just shout from the stands or do they use technology and stuff?

HabsFan29 said...

miracle call!

moeman said...

Lookie there collie. Make sure you even that up later.

Orangeman said...

I am actually shocked they called that, that's how little respect I have for this league. I expect an 'even up' call shortly.

HabsFan29 said...

Mexican shot!

moeman said...

L E G O !!!

HabsFan29 said...

LEGO!!!!

LeBuuuuut said...

Lego!

Orangeman said...

FUCKING EAT IT YOU DIRTY FUCKS.

kevincrumbs said...

Shitty PP... but 1st blood!

iRiRi said...

MOEmaN!!!

McPhee said...

Lego!!!!!!

Amazing game! So fast-paced!

iRiRi said...

Don't mind me.

McPhee said...

Boston sucks and they have nothing on us. They are losing in the 1st round no matter who they play. The Laffs would take them out in 6.

They SUCK

Orangeman said...

Gomez seems interested this game. And talented for that matter!

moeman said...

marchand

lehab said...

If one day Lego becomes great, should we re-name him Marmaduke?

kevincrumbs said...

I hate Marmaduke.

McPhee said...

Is there a team with more mojo in the entire nhl than Montreal?

You can't say the Phucktards, because losing 7-0 at any point disqualifies you from claiming any pride/mojo/manliness.

HabsFan29 said...

so I'm spending the between play time reading the comments on the Puck Daddy story about Marchand's comments. Don't go there if you want to keep your sanity. sample:

"Mr. Marchand speaks the truth...how can Canadiens fans actually root for a team that dives all over the place and takes cheap shots, yet won't stand up for their actions when the time comes. If that were my team I honestly don't think i'd be too proud to be a Canadiens fan"

moeman said...

I haven't cried since The Rocket ovation at the Forum closing but if Kirk bails I will need a bucket.

moeman said...

Thx for the Pfucking warning 29. (Yes I'm padding the comments total)

moeman said...

L E G O 2 !!!!!!!!!!

HabsFan29 said...

LEGO AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!

iRiRi said...

LEGO!!!

I saw THAT!

Orangeman said...

Oh my!

LeBuuuuut said...

Lego again! Let's build a city with those bricks!

moeman said...

NB - da Bs will now go after Lego.

lehab said...

Marmaduke!

moeman said...

collie just pissed hisself. One more and its shat city. Maybe he'll go give the Bs a motivational speech in betwixt periods.

HabsFan29 said...

40 minutes of The System time...

moeman said...

Great period. More hock-hock like this and tsn will have no hilites tonite. Fuck gino reddux!

Number31 said...

YOU GOT LARS-ED!

And Randy Tieman wanted to scratch Eller for Alex Henry...

moeman said...

FLA up 3-0 on the Hawks. Weird.

kevincrumbs said...

AK did a great job with Lego's 2nd goal. Let it be known that this is the 1st time I've praised AK this year.

Orangeman said...

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand breath.

Good period, I hope they keep it up (that what she said!).

After everything that happened last game, after Julien sent out his thugs in the last minute to beat on non-fighters, after Campbell used his equipment in a fight, after those cowards continued to hit after our guys were on the ice, to give White an instigator after a questionable hit on PK is beyond ridiculous. I realize these are different refs and in the end the Habs will benefit if they continue to try to keep this game under control. But still, that is a laughable call. I think it's the first instigator I've seen in over a year.

Steve said...

Holy Fuck Batman Lego with two goals, he gets the hat trick or GSM hates us.

I got the ESPN and its flawless full screen its an omen, I tell you an omen. And the ESPN announcers are not at all homers compared to CBC.

No Retreat No Surrender

And Ryan White, made me cry,

kevincrumbs said...

B's intermission highlights are fucking idiotic. It's like they don't realise that scoring wins games, not hits.

kevincrumbs said...

ESPN? Am missing something, Steve?

moeman said...

Appreciate RDS' pointing out TFS™'s win totals and how he is closing in on Roy's 36 regular season wins. Impressive and then some.

moeman said...

Also, RDS did not have the leaf Reamer in their Vezina finalists (to date).

HabsFan29 said...

in Steve's world ESPN still has NHL rights

the Maritimer said...

I wonder if McSplooge still thinks Montreal got a bag of pucks for Halak, or as he put it , St. Louis committed grand larceny?

Ha! Fuck you Pierre.

That second goal was fucking beautiful!

McPhee said...

Timmy (Horton) is such a perfect Broon : big, stupid-looking, vastly overrated, tremendously underperforming and overall underwhelming, and communist (the opposite of money).

Hypnotoad said...

I did not think it was possible to hate the Bruins more than I did, but you did it NESN! Now, my urge to kill is rising to levels previously unheard of.

moeman said...

"...we know how much they hate us, they know how much we hate them..." ~ PatCHes

Also, wasn't rookie marchand disrespectful with his comment? Wonder what richards and cherry think. Do they think?

LeBuuuuut said...

I'm still a little new to this, but I think we're on pace for ice cream tonight. Maybe?

the Maritimer said...

Also, great first period by Travis Moen. He gets reamed once in a while for having hands of stone, but you don't win without guys like him. Even Cherry likes him.

moeman said...

mcsplooge's tradeline gem that the have have no good young players and have a bleak future are also fun to decipher.

heh, knee on knee, saw that in the first.

HabsFan29 said...

added some Tits to the 2nd goal with an assist. he deserved it

ugh early PK

Orangeman said...

So knee on knee hit is a penalty afterall. I guess it depends what uniform your in when you do it.

iRiRi said...

At this point, we're on pace for the whole cow!

moeman said...

tyops R FHFun.

Orangeman said...

Is it just me and my acid trip, or are there lights shining on the offensive zones? Does anyone else see those blue spots.

Anyone?

Spots?

Any...

moeman said...

0-man, its you. Did you bang your ...

HabsFan29 said...

you cant see the blood thru mara's beard! should be 4!

Orangeman said...

Bleed like you've never bled before, Paulie.

Orangeman said...

Well, sure, the spots are gone now. Now I just have to worry about these spiders crawling all over my skin.

HabsFan29 said...

squibbler! Gio!

LeBuuuuut said...

THE CAPTAIN! WHAT A MOVE!

moeman said...

Gio!

iRiRi said...

Gio!!!

Orangeman said...

Do we get two for that? It went over the line twice!

kevincrumbs said...

Rask sucks.

Moey said...

Spent the whole 1st period on the phone with Bell. TSN enlgish feed is blacked out tonight. I'm beside myself.

But what the hell, we're up 2-0. I'm slowly getting over it.

Make that 3-0! Woo hoo!

iRiRi said...

@Moey - I was just about to ask if it was working for anybody. What was their reason?

HabsFan29 said...

NHL still calling the refs. they wont give up

McPhee said...

two minutes for having a 3-0 lead.


Boston is so awesome.

Orangeman said...

Oooooh, I have a very interesting Bell story. Apparently I was using 20 gigs of bandwidth per day over the holidays when I was in Ontario with my computer and my modem was shut off. I was charged for it and I'm still fighting them.

I'll spare everyone the details, but if you use Bell this is a huge problem, as documented in several newspapers. Check your usage online if you use Bell and double check it with a third party. It is actually impossible for me to use 20 gigs/day on this speed. Trust me, I've tried. One can never have too much porn.

Moey said...

@Ri

They don't know they just have a memo saying it's blacked out today. Bummer, considering it was the main reason we switched from Videotron to Bell.

HabsFan29 said...

well it's been at least 3 games since we had a too many men. we were due

McPhee said...

now the crowd is booing boston because they suck.

two many menTM

moeman said...

I'm just glad these its raining too many men penalties don't come during the playoffs.

Kmaxx said...

let me jump in to Steves defense about ESPN. I have that feed too and while they definitely are a Boston crew they are no where near as bad as sportsleaf or the leafbc. They give credit to good plays by both teams and knock both teams when they play like shit - just saying! And the stream is excellent too!

Orangeman said...

And like Bell, the Habs have a hard time counting.

HabsFan29 said...

at least that too many men had some comedy value

moeman said...

Less than 60 comments to 20 Gigs of meth-laced ice cream.

McPhee said...

I hate the Laff, just as much as I hate Hell, all referee and thee Philly. Detroit I respect and hate at the same time while while Boston just sucks.

moeman said...

Squid on the PK?

HabsFan29 said...

sure, pound into our franchise after the whistle, you fucks

Orangeman said...

I watched the NESP stream last time and while they are obviously biased, it's fine because they're supposed to be. They are also announcers of the game at hand, not just one team like the CBC, TSN, Sportsnet, etc.

iRiRi said...

@o-man - Wow, that is crazy and suprisingly, not the first time I hear something like that. Definitely gonna start monitoring my usage.

So Lucic is now allowed to push Price and the puck into the net? SOMEONE, DO SOMETHING!

McPhee said...

editmaster me


Boston is irrelevant, Boston is our everlasting bye.

Mara missed an open net? That's un-possible.

HabsFan29 said...

penalties are evening out. miracle!

won't last

moeman said...

I've been monitoring my iRiRi streaking video usage. So far, 0 bits.

Also, it was Krejci that shoved TFS™, after the whistle. Um, hello collie, hello. Does Price have to beat a B with a glove to get noticed?

moeman said...

Whiz!!!!!!! 4-0.

HabsFan29 said...

CHeez WHIZZZ!!!

iRiRi said...

CHeez Whiz!!!

*faints*

Orangeman said...

I feel good.

LeBuuuuut said...

Cheese Whiz!

Orangeman said...

That's a fucking ridiculous shot.

Bill 101 said...

Fuck yeah

wv: B's ship is in dradeoc

McPhee said...

Do you think there's a lot of Broon fan out there going : "just wait 'till the playoffs" ?


WV : catini, as in : Boston sucks

moeman said...

Wonder what all dem mediots that called the bruins' goonfest win a 'signature' moment will say. I know, game isn't over, Habs are small and stir shit up but still sweet to see a great performance to date.

HabsFan29 said...

SO close to wings there. in the 2nd period!

Anyone miss the Urologist and his slags about having the door slammed in his face, three times! Trois fois tabernacque.

Orangeman said...

Ok, here's my confession and god help us all if it jinxes anything. I didn't want to bring it up before.

Sometime after the last game I had a dream that when these two met again a young call up from Hamilton got into a statement fight early in the game (and won) and then our boys won 6-0.

The fact that I was that young call up in this dream is immaterial to this confession.

moeman said...

29 meant "SO close to ice cream there. in the 2nd period!"

moeman said...

Nice dream 0-man but you've also been seeing spots and can't remember downloading all those Justin Beiber youtoob vids.

iRiRi said...

I am speechless :(

McPhee said...

Big Tits was all over Ryder.

And I love how he's always that guy with a Hab jersey being destroyed by a big hit.

JESUS

Kankwan said...

FUCKING DIE CHARA DIE.

good day folks.

moeman said...

Wow. Out cold. Hope PatCHes is OK.

HabsFan29 said...

WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT YOU APE

oh god he's dead

Hypnotoad said...

Holy fuck!

Orangeman said...

I am horrified by that.

What a classless, disgusting organization the Bruins are.

Hypnotoad said...

I can't want Chara dead until they confirm patches is alive

LeBuuuuut said...

Well, I blame Orangeman for that one.

HabsFan29 said...

i'm sick right now

moeman said...

No benefit of the doubt, sick, dirty hit.

Fuck you chara!

Oleg Petrov said...

Seriously, everyone. A quick prayer for that kid. I think he's dead.

HabsFan29 said...

oy he's really not moving

Number31 said...

FUCK YOU CHARA YOU FUCKING FUCKFACE! HE BETTER BE SUSPENDED THE REST OF THE FUCKING YEAR FOR THAT!

ezzeloharr said...

Patches may never play again. Wow.

How the league wakes the fuck up.

moeman said...

... and with collie watching.

Dr. Mulder is talking to him, hope Max is cognizant. Get well fast young man, we need you.

moeman said...

Classless organization. Always has been. Always will be.

iRiRi said...

I am utterly disgusted and in tears.

fezworth said...

Shit.. did that happen right at the end of the period? I'm confused. Sound is off, so I dunno what they were saying.

Steve said...

Jesus, Patches please be okay

HabsFan29 said...

people are going to analyze this one for days to come. im not looking forward to that

but really, patCHes be ok. please. im no doctor, but that was bad

iRiRi said...

THAT's your fuckin' captain?!

fezworth said...

@moeman - As much as I hate the Bruins, and as much as I hate Chara (even more) right now, I don't think you can blame the organization that hit. I'm sure nobody, least of all Chara & Julien wanted to break PatCHes neck. Fuck. I can't believe I just wrote that. :-(

Matt - ftc said...

Fucking disgusting. If the Hans do nothing to chara, I hope the fans throw something heavy at him

Moey said...

FFS. Godspeed Max. Typical Bruin bullshit when they're losing.

moeman said...

Max has proven to be strong and deal well with physical/injury challenges but this has to be a huge body blow. Take all the time you need kid. Just get well for fuck sakes.

Number31 said...

I'm angry. I'm in tears. I want to drive to the Bell Center and pitchfork his ass to the rafters. FUCK YOU CHARA! FIFTEEN FUCKING SECONDS!!!

kevincrumbs said...

Fuck. That being said, dirty ape Chara's hit wasn't targeted at the head. Hope Patches is alright.

Number31 said...

@moeman
I'm so fucking scared his neck is broken...........

ezzeloharr said...

I think we're all going to need the ice cream/meth hit 29 promises after 200 comments.

Habsfan10 said...

Good God almighty, that looked horrible. I don't think I've ever seen someone hit the stanchion like that.

I'm guessing that's Max Pac's season.

Fuck I hope he's okay.

Orangeman said...

I will accept responsibility for my flamboyant jinxing soon, but let me restate:

That was horrifying as a human being. I thought he might be decapitated, not even joking, and was looking away from the screen.

Second, what a classless fucking ridiculously dirty person Chara is. What a fucking dirty, classless, sick, disturbed, pathetic, sub-human the boston bruin organization is. Yes, like the leaf, they've lost their right to capital letters.

Third, god speed Max Pax. Let this be temporary.
