Here's a funny quote from an article on NHL.com:

On Saturday, fans in the upper reaches of Bell Centre began chanting in French "On veut un tir" in the second period, which means "We want a shot." The Capitals were ahead 26-3 in the game and 14-0 in the second period on the shot counter when Daniel Briere took an innocuous shot on goal at 12:44 of the second, triggering cheers from the fans that Capitals goalie Braden Holtby said may have been the biggest he's ever received for making a save.

The mock cheers eventually turned to boos as the game continued, and Gorges has been in Montreal long enough to know that is not something he or any of his teammates should be taking to heart.

That's right, guys, no need to take your fans seriously. What do they know?

I found this one interesting as well:

http://www.habseyesontheprize.com/2014/1/15/5311112/the-struggles-of-the-montreal-canadiens-arent-going-away-without

OK, here's my prediction:

Last time these two played was New Year's Eve 2013. Habs were dominating, building up a 3-0 lead after two periods. Amidst this, the refs had given the 'Canes EIGHT power plays up to that point, but the Habs had killed them all. So, coincidentally (?), the Habs just kept going to the penalty box until Carolina had scored two power play goals to start the third period, for a total of TEN power plays, plus all the momentum. The 'Canes then scored two more goals to take the lead 4-3. Montreal tied the game later in the third, but eventually lost in overtime, 5-4. What a way to send out the year.

This time around, the Habs are playing far worse in every aspect of their game. Coming off their worst effort of the season, and the most lopsided loss so far this year in being shut out 5-0 to the last-place Washington Capitals, I fully expect the meltdown to find an even higher gear, as their "let's stay calm" interviews seem to be saying "let's just keep doing what we're doing." Therefore, the Habs will continue to be the easiest team to play and score against, while they just can't find the net themselves. Poor play, plus finding themselves a man down quite often, puts them behind to stay.....again. They will probably take more shots in this contest, in an attempt to overcompensate for the last miserable effort, but alas, they are going nowhere, and they know it.....they just won't admit it. 6-1 Carolina......Price gets pulled again.....and still nothing changes after this, except for some fans who decide their time can be better used accomplishing things instead of watching record-setting embarrassing moments in Habs history.

I wonder if Bourque will play tonight? :rolleyes:

Here’s how the Habs’ lines and defence pairings are expected to look against the Hurricanes:

Eller-Plekanec-Gionta
Pacioretty-Desharnais-Gallagher
Prust-Briere-Bourque
Moen-Bournival-Parros

Gorges-Subban
Markov-Emelin
Murray-Beaulieu

Brandon Prust didn’t take part in the morning skate, instead having a therapy session, but will play against the Hurricanes. George Parros will take Leblanc’s spot in the lineup, while defencemen Francis Bouillon and Raphael Diaz will be healthy scratches.

“Preparation is really important, and I felt that we had a good practice yesterday and a good skate this morning as well, which will help us be at our best tonight,” the coach added. “The NHL is a league with a lot of parity among its teams. Every team has something to prove on a given night, and being well prepared is going to give us the best chance to succeed.”

Oh, really? <_<

The Canadiens announced that Leblanc was being returned to the AHL’s Hamilton Bulldogs.

Is this Bournival's first crack at center? (I can't recall)

Emelin on the wrong side again?

Beaulieau and Murray could be ... interesting? See if Beaulieau can overcome that obstacle.

Go Habs Go!

Diaz still scratched? Emelin back on his wrong side?

oh god

It just keeps getting better and better.

The way this team is being mismanaged is just sapping all the enjoyment out of me. It's gotten to the point where the only enjoyable thing about a Habs game is all the humor on this message board. If they pull another stinker tonight, I don't think I'll follow them any more for a while. Plenty of other projects that can keep me busy.

Hello, everybody. :)

I'm not… particularly hopeful that we're going to win this one, but hey, you never know. That's why we watch them, right?

My plan for tonight: Watch the Habs. If they play great, awesome! I chose the right first game to watch since Chicago. If they play like I think they will, I'll just turn the game off and make cake waffles. -_-

And you brought enough for everyone, surely?

The trains were late and it was a total mess at central station after work tonight, i almost decided to buy a ticket from a scalper and go to the game instead but in the end, it must not be much fun to go to the bell centre alone so i came home. I hope they make me regret my decision :D
