Either you believe that a.) the Habs are uniquely penalty -prone or b.) that they're getting screwed. No one -- no one-- gets this many five on threes late in games. Just doesn't happen. So ...they're getting screwed.
It has to be GRILLED... completely GRILLED... into our players heads to never risk taking marginal penalties.
It's one thing if, say, one of our players takes a penalty to stop the other team's star from getting an incredible scoring opportunity.
But a lot of the penalties that we're taking are these stupid ones caused by careless plays (keep both hands on the stick!) and/or players retaliating when they have to suck it up and not let their emotions lead them into taking stupid penalties.
The reffing has been terrible against us many games, but we're not helping our own cause either. We have to stop taking marginal penalties. This is the main difference for us between wins and losses right now - f***ing marginal penalties!
What happened on the Metropolit penalty? Is it the same **** where we got intro a scrum and ended up having 2 penalties and 0 for the other team? O'byrne Version 2009 is back. Can't wait for next game against Martin Brodeur
I'm sorry Halak fanboys, but Price is the better goalie. Halak wasn't the cause of the loss, but he sure as hell didn't help.
In that case it has nothing to do with being ****in fanboys. It's all about being dumb enough to always think that in Montreal it ALWAYS has to be about the goalie. How about those stupid penalties once again? How about the fact that we have 1 offensive line?
Time to judge other stuff than the freakin goalies.
I'm heading out for the night. I can't stand the "FUUUUUUUU O'BYRNE" and the "STUPID METROPOLIT!!!" posters, who earlier this year praised Metropolit calling him Moses, and praying on their knees like they needed five dollars for OB to come back into the line-up.
Why the **** did Martin start Halak?? I'm not gonna blame him for the loss, but 4 ****ing goals on 27 ****ing shots with limited ****ing scoring chances is not that great. This wasen't even a back to back situation, if he wanted to start Halak one game this week he could have done it on Wednesday or Thursday...dumb ALF looking Mother ****er.
