Best Montreal games from the 2008-09 regular season
 
Guys,

Each year I keep the best 5 games from the Habs regular season. Here's my current list of 6 finalists... which games are missing in your opinion, which one of these shouldn't be kept ? (personal French comment kept in brackets)

- Match 21 - Montréal Canadiens @ Detroit Red Wings (contre les champions)
- Match 27 - Calgary Flames @ Montréal Canadiens (ambiance enflammée)
- Match 40 - Toronto Maple Leafs @ Montréal Canadiens (festival de pénalités)
- Match 41 - Washington Capitals @ Montréal Canadiens (jusqu'à la dernière seconde)
- Match 61 - Vancouver Canucks @ Montréal Canadiens (du grand Halak)
- Match 81 - Montréal Canadiens @ Boston Bruins (un match à rebondissements)

The Caputi game ? I don't remember what happened in that game.

6 games. That's about the total of all good games they have played.

The first ever Caputi Hat Trick.

Caputi scores on his first NHL shot/shift.
Caputi takes a minor penalty
Caputi scores into his own net

Caputi Hat Trick.

The comeback against the Islanders was fun.

#2eddieshore 04-12-2009 02:43 PM

the favourite game for me was the game in which we thrashed the Leafs at home.

the one where Grabovski went crazy against the reff.

MicroFracture 04-12-2009 04:07 PM

All the games we have won against the Flyers ;)

-The first game against them where everyone would think we'd get owned like in the playoffs
-The game where Komisarek came back, we were coming off a 3 game streak I think and instead of losing 7-2 like some posters here said, we won 5-2
-The game with the OT winner by Schneider

Also
-The Lapierre hat trick vs the Panthers
-The Lang hat trick vs Rangers
-The Koivu winner in OT against the Oilers
-The 6-3 win over the Thrashers, who marked the birth of the Tanguay-Koivu-Kovalev line, where Tanguay scored that highlight reel goal and that turned the end of the season around when we had no hope.
(God we were on a roll, too bad Schneider and Markov getting injured made us lose our last 4 games)

Up and down season, but we still had good moments;)

This is my pick, especially since I was there live and it was total madness.

Pascal 04-12-2009 05:55 PM

I liked the one with Grabovski acting like a total little ****.

Otherwise, pretty forgetful overall..

Nedved 04-12-2009 06:17 PM

the next ones coming up

go habs go

C4KOMI 04-12-2009 06:59 PM

there was no such thing.

Peacock 04-12-2009 07:35 PM

The Canadiens played hockey this year? :D

Seriously though, I liked the rangers game on Dec. 2nd iirc. I think it was the best game cause it was the ONLY game that we looked like last year (minus a few flashes in other games).

I may be biased cause I was there, but some of the passing was beautiful and reminiscent of 07-08

i thought of this game too, when they wore the jerseys with the CA and Price wore the ken dryden pads, 6-2 i think right?

The one game I watched live this season, November 11th against the Sens. Great all-round effort on the part of the Habs. Gave me my money's worth.

Pat 04-13-2009 08:54 AM

every game Laraque was in :sarcasm:

Good choice! Higgins with a hat trick and a shutout for Price.
