Notes shamelessly copy-pasted from from
This will be Montreal’s second in a five-game road swing and injuries are starting to affect how coach Michel Therrien doles out his ice time. Defensemen Andrei Markov (27:03) and P.K. Subban (26:49) each established new season highs for ice time in Sunday night’s big 4-3 win in Boston. When Raphael Diaz was healthy, Therrien liked the balance on his three defense pairings and it was largely special teams that created the differences in the ice time given to each. But now he is appearing to lean heavier on his top guys, a group that also includes Josh Gorges and Alexei Emelin.

The last time the Islanders faced the Canadiens, they were hoping to break out of a slump that saw them lose seven of their previous nine games. That come-from-behind, overtime win in Montreal appears to have done that, with the Islanders going 3-2-1 in their last six dating back to that win. But the power play is a problem, going four straight games without scoring (0-for-11). The Islanders’ power play is truly strange in that it is clicking at a 16.4 percent rate at home, 23rd in the National Hockey League, but it’s a League-best 32.3 percent on the road. This game against the Canadiens is the fifth of a seven-game homestand.

Players to look out for:
Habs: Brian Gionta, Travis Moen, Francois Bouillon
Isles: Tavares, Moulson, Streit, DiPietro


Req: Beer, or if you're a man, whiskey
Take 1 drink if:
  • The RDS commentator uses the word "péniblement"
  • The Habs commit an icing with seconds left in the period
  • Lars Eller makes a good play and everyone in the thread mentions how he should play more
  • Someone complains about Moen
  • Gionta shoots high-and-wide
  • Emelin crushes someone
Take 2 drinks if:
  • You lose sight of David Desharnais during a play because he's by the near-sideboards and only spot him by noticing his floating helmet
  • Ryan White commits a penalty and everyone in the thread erupts in rage
  • Carey Price lets in a goal and Maliki2 mentions it (drink every time he mentions the goal)
  • Someone complains about Armstrong
  • Someone mentions that Emelin has metal plates in his eye
Take 3 drinks if:
  • Brian Gionta skates the puck to the o-zone blueline, dumps it and then runs off to change (aka The Dump-and-Change)
  • A Hab commits a delay-of-game puck over the glass and it makes you miss Hamrlik and Spacek
  • Gionta misses an impossible-to-miss open net
  • Someone calls Pacioretty "Wolverine"
  • A goal is scored
Finish drink if:
  • Price lets in less than one goal
  • Gionta completes a hat-trick
  • You think about your ex and it makes you wonder how thing's could've been...
  • A player is traded mid-game
Finish a brand new drink if:
  • Thomas Kaberle scores the 20,000th goal in Montreal Canadiens history

I've never made a GDT, hope this is okay.
Well, there goes my night.

Blasphemy. As far as I'm concerned, Islay IS scotch.
