03/21/13 Habs at Islanders
There's a game tomorrow, Habs need to be aggressive here and finally get a win. NYI has one line.

Bourque isn't returning yet.

Go Habs Go.

The Islanders are coming off a soul crushing loss to the Senators, a game that saw them turn a 3-1 lead in the 3rd into a 5-3 loss. They got screwed over by Toronto on a no-goal call, then the refs missed 2 calls on the Sens GWG.

The key here is: Stay out of the box. Stay out of the box. STAY OUT OF THE BOX.

The 2 games against them we got off to good starts, gave them a PP very early in the 2nd and that completely turned the game around in their favor.

Automatic loss.

Habs 4 Life 03-20-2013 03:09 PM

When I saw the Isles up 3-1 against Ottawa I told my friend at the game last night were losing in Long Island, but to be honest after their collapse I have a good feeling about tomorrow night and the boys can't play worse then last night, they looked like last year's team in the first 40

Can we (players) take the Islanders seriously for once? That would be nice.

StellerEller 03-20-2013 03:13 PM

1)60 mins please
2)Stay out of the box
3)Protect Price
4)Control the puck

The Islanders? We're doomed.

Superman vs. Kryptonite...

LarsEller 03-20-2013 03:43 PM

I have a good feeling about this one. Seems like we never lose 2 in a row this season. Plus the boys should be fired up and looking for revenge.

Go Habs Go:yo:

M.C.G. 31 03-20-2013 03:51 PM

I ****ing hate playing the Islanders. Please win.

windycity 03-20-2013 03:59 PM

Need. To. Beat. The. Islanders

Ugh. I hate facing the Islanders..
My expectations of winning are so much lower than versus say Boston. Its pretty scary.

LoonieDeals 03-20-2013 04:53 PM

Coming a horrible performance against the Sabres, I don't expect tomorrow to be a trap.
I expect an easy win.The previous games vs Islanders have been trap games.

habtastic 03-20-2013 05:13 PM

I have a feeling this will come down to whether we can convert on the PP or not. We really need to kick up our % to make us a deadly team on the PP. This, of course, may involve playing Eller and Chucky. Seems to work almost every time. We can outgun them, just have to watch out for the drop passes that result in a cluster**** superhuge screen with a completely open Taveres/Moulson/Bailey. I'm sure PK wants to win this against his buddy Justin Timberlake.

Price is playing tomorrow ?

Well, here's a 2 game losing streak.

habtastic 03-20-2013 05:21 PM

Price is playing tomorrow?

Shutout. 2-0 Habs.

Seb 03-20-2013 05:39 PM

Price shutout.

2-0 Habs :yo:

Johnny B Good 03-20-2013 05:51 PM

Hey guys..I feel really stupid asking, but what is trapezoid? :p I see people writing about trap game etc all the time, but have no clue what it is..

MarkovsKnee 03-20-2013 05:54 PM

1. Stay out of the penalty box.
2. Stay out of the penalty box.
3. Play better defensively.
4. Stay out of the penalty box.
5. No gimmees by Price.

oh, and STAY OUT of the ****ING PENALTY BOX.

WE do that. We win this game.

Raider917 03-20-2013 06:04 PM

i think Montreal will win decisively tommorow. Since the 6-0 loss to Toronto, Montreal are 5-0 (20 goals for and 10 against) after a loss.

On the flip side of that, they're 0-1-1 against the Islanders this season. They've allowed 10, or 11 goals against and scored 6 I believe.

Matt Moulson is going to tear us up again.

MoldyCakes 03-20-2013 06:39 PM

They'll score 3 at the very least. Streit, Tavy, and whoever is their other offensive Dman will all pitching, and on separate plays.
We get crushed 5-2.

Moroccan 03-20-2013 06:44 PM

Now that we lost against the Buffalols and finished strong I think it's gonna be a huge win against the islanders. Prediction: 4:1 Habs :nod:
