Marty Brodeur gets Win 551 as Habs woes continue

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 […]

Bob Gainey wins his first back on the bench.  Habs beat Oilers in OT

Habs GM and now Head Coach Bob Gainey won in his debut game back behind the bench as the Canadians beat Edmonton 4-3 in OT. Captain Saku Koivu led the way with 2 goals.  It was a nice game.  They weren’t blown out shotwise; Gregory Stewart had a fight; Chris Higgins took six shots with […]

Guy Carbonneau FIRED told ya so

Guy Carbonneau FIRED told ya so

As I suggested recently in this blog, the Habs have fired head coach Guy Carbonneau and GM Bob Gainey has stepped into the breach for the remainnder of this season. Bob said on trade deadline day that he was happy with “His” team and I am predicting that if “His” team doesn’t make the play-offs […]

Habs Shut Out 2-0 by Atlanta – The Price isn’t right

Habs Shut Out 2-0 by Atlanta – The Price isn’t right

Carey Price and the Habs were shut out 2-0 by Atlanta last night continuing Price’s losing streak.   I think he needs to be sent down to get his groove back and give Marc Denis a chance to back up Halak.  The game wasn’t as bad as the final score.  It was penalty filled and Ryan […]

NHL SCORES and news

NHL SCORES and news

Busy busy night in the NHL. Olli Jokinen paid immediate dividends for Calgary scoring 2 goals in Calgary’s 5-1 romp over the Flyers.   Makes one wonder of the Buffalo loss for the Habs if they’d had that big presence on line 1… In other NHL scores; Phoenix edged Boston 2-1; Rangers doubled the Isles 4-2; […]

Port in Prescott reports a Profit – more local jobs

Port in Prescott reports a Profit – more local jobs

LINK Taxpayers in Edwardsburgh/Cardinal are not on the hook for the outstanding one-third share ($11.5-million) of the improvements. The profitable Port possesses adequate reserves to carry its share. It made a tidy $2.2-million in 2008 alone, of which $514,000 was returned to the owning township’s coffers, significantly bolstering the bottom line of the small municipality’s […]

The Price isn’t right – Habs tossed by Buffalo 5-1

The Price isn’t right – Habs tossed by Buffalo 5-1

Not a lot of games to report on.  The Habs took the news of no action on deadline day and responded with a 5-1 trouncing at the hands of the Buffalo Sabres.   Patrick Lalime of all goalies looked like Jaroslav Halak and was the games first star making 38 saves as the Habs outshot the […]
