Habs Win 2 in a Row – Outshoot Lightning too!

Yes, they said it couldn’t happen; the Habs actually outshot a team (36-19).   They won too thanks to goals by Alex Kovalev, Saku Koivu, and Guillaume Latendresse. Of course Tampa isn’t that great a team this year, but a win is a win, especially in a Cup hunt. Congrats to Les Boys and Carey Price […]

Habs for sale – anyone have a spare $300 Mil?

Habs for sale – anyone have a spare $300 Mil?

Maybe that’s why Bob Gainey didn’t get Vinny Lecavilier?   Maybe William Gillet wouldn’t let him spend the $$? Now that the rumours have been confirmed perhaps a Canadian concern or even a Quebec concern will purchase the Habs? Mr. Gillet made a shrewd investment at a good time and snatched up not only the gem […]

Habs sink to bottom and lose to Leafs

Habs sink to bottom and lose to Leafs

Yes, the Habs lost 5-2 to Toronto.   It was a brutal affair as the Hockey Gods rained down disfavour on Canadians head coach and GM Bob Gainey. I guess this will be a lesson to future GM’s not to have the core of your team be UFA’s. Maxim Lapierre, Guy Carboneau’s protege scored Montreal’s two […]

Sens Beat Habs 5-4

Sens Beat Habs 5-4

Yes you lowly Sens fans can snicker and sneer.   Your team beat the Habs last night in Ottawa led by Jason Spezza’s 2 goals. You don’t get 3 point nights from Tom Kotsopoulos often and sadly Carey Price squandered a good overall performance. It’s time to let Halak be the guy as I’m not sure […]

Marty Brodeur becomes the Greatest Goalie ever – 552

No Goalie has ever won as many games as Martin Brodeur.   It feels so odd saying that as I have a bit of personal history with Marty. When I ran sports card shows and repped athletes at other events in the early 90’s I had the opportunity to have Marty do his first gig for […]

Marty Brodeur gets Win 551 as Habs woes continue

Giving up 48 shots in your home rink during a Play-Off drive is not the sign of a good team. There were some beacons of light.  The Habs were hitting more which was good and Halak gave another good performance other than one fluke goal, but again you can’t score if you don’t have the […]
