And this is a team that is clawing it's way out of the cellar, I can't hate on them when their fanbase has had to eat humble pie all season. I wish we'd BEAT THEM when they come to the Bell Center once in awhile, but this isn't a team that infuriates me like many others do.

Again though, I wasn't able to watch so I can't comment on the reffing or the supposed "trap" play (really, we're calling others out on playing the trap? REALLY?) but it's just a loss. Let's chill and move on to the next game.
i am a devils fan but the canadiens are my second favorite team by far. we wouldn't have those three cups without the foundation your franchise laid for us.

lemieux, richer, lemaire, and robinson just to name a few.

I have zero expectations when we play NJ, it's just easier to deal with that way.

same here, but what's frustrating is that the outcome and reffing is soooooooo predictable. like would it kill them to make it look like there's parity in these games? it's no fun always knowing the future, and watching the same **** unfold, in something that hasn't happened yet, and should be out of anyone's control, yet almost always ending up with the same ********.

when the ending is always the same in something that's not scripted, it's because it is in fact being controlled, favored, partiality, wtv you wanna call it.

it is statistically impossible for this to ALWAYS happen in something that has ~50 human beings taking part in something like that.

and it's frustrating that we all know it, and they know no one could ever prove anything, and they just keep doing the same thing over and over and over and over again like it's spitting in our faces.

it's just like the cops who since forever, have always officially denied quotas for tickets (until finally fessing up recently), when everybody and their mom knew damn well that's BS, but are in no position to do anything about it. the powers that be are laughing hysterically at pulling the exact same script out for every god damn game we play them.

someome check the last time we had a jersey-habs game that WASN'T reffed by at least one QC ref? whether it's them specifically doing it, doesn't matter. IMO it's more the ones doing the reffing schedule who KNOW that by staffing a frenchy or 2, the matter will take care of itself while the ref subconciously or conciously overcompensates his impartiality. i swear they are manipulating the refs with their reverse-psychology.

the refs are likely the pawns in this matter. doing the devil's work, and quite literally.

That is my mentality as well. The key is always lower your expectations towards games against New Jersey and Flyers.

Those in power play the ignorant like fools and suckers. Those being played in this manner are too ....asleep... to even see whats being done to them. They hear something on TV and think they know the truth about thats really happening on this planet. Its time for the ignorant to wake up and realize how these power elites are playing them for fools.

Also, I find it pretty hilarious that people complain about the devils defensive play when the habs do the same thing. What do you think fans of the pens and caps thought of our team last playoffs?
Anyone who didn't see that, clearly needs to get their eyes checked.

Sad part is the Habs coulda come back in the 3rd, dominated the period. Gionta usually is pretty clutch with an open net.

Spare us the "I'm a poor misunderstood individual in a sea of blind ignorants". It was lame in high school, it's even lamer now.

This game left a bad taste. We shouldn't blame the officiating. It's the Habs' own fault for throwing away a precious home game in the second half of the season. They even got a break when Brodeur had to leave with a minor injury. Right from the start the Habs screwed up in their own end. The first two goals were against the pair of Gill and Subban but the whole team didn't play well in the first and second periods. True, they played the day before and the Devils didn't, but that's no excuse because they didn't have to travel from another city and arrive home late. The loss hurt the Habs big time in the standings,

We lost a hockey "game", relax it will be better tomorrow, the world is a beautiful place, there is good everywhere. There is also an agenda out there to control the poor and to keep the little man down and there are motives based on greed and power. There are also two sides to every coin and the same agenda exists on the part of cospiracy theorists and book authors who "sell" an agenda designed to make the almighty buck.... I believe alot of what they say as well, but while I listen, I always keep my eyes an ears open and my wallet closed.

Our next game is against Boston and I hope we dominate them the same as usual, we win against them the same way Jersey beats us, we don't get favorable calls, our team just finds a way to win against them. Go Habs Go.

Get real. I know myself fully and trust in myself fully. I don't need to find acceptance or understanding from anyone, and surely not from you, as I am man enough to stand on my own. I don't need you to understand the reality we live in because the lost is only for you. Most people are opening their eyes, only the "-well-adjusted- to a profoundly sick society" don't seem to understand the ongoing process and it's inevitable clashes.

You might not think this as important, but you are part of the problem until you can realize what the problem is. Your denial is understandable, because this system has treated us much better than the rest of over 5-6 billion other people. You don't seem to see the inherent fallacy of the system which is totally opposite to human growth, by stiffling technology and independance. The pursuit of profit can only lead to further corruption and pursuit for more raw power.

The reality is, and don't get your panties in a bunch about this, the matter of the fact is that you are naive. Your reaction is childish, as attacking the messenger is obvious proof of that. I'm not complaining about my life, I'm very happy about who I am and what I do. Only someone really blind and conform to his lifelong indoctrination would think my message was about me rather than spreading the seeds of knowledge that we should all be spreading.

The proof is there, the mass of documentation is overwhelming. It's not just some nut saying "some people wanna take over the world" in some odd book. I'm getting close to two decades of fact searching and I've only scratched the surface of all the information out there, but the conclusion is already there by the sheer amount of facts; the system must be changed, completely.

Do you even understand how fractional reserve works and the consequence of this system?

I made the comparison, because the corruption is systematic almost everywhere in commerce and industry.

So we go from a game against a team that owns us to a game against a team we own.

Beat the Bruins in Boston and tie them. HUGE!

The reffing isn't why they lost, both teams got the short end of the stick in that department. Just watching hockey this season it's frustrating what passes for competence in this league. How do you miss so many blatant high sticks? I mean, clutching and grabbing is such a grey area, but missing a high stick? You're just not doing your job.
Enlightning to say the least....

You know what, after the past month of reffing I'm buying it.

Actually I thought we did a good job against the trap today. We were able to gain the zone quite easily, with short crisp passes. We had the chances to score today, bottom line is, we're just not finishing them on a regular basis.

I thought the first period was rather horrendous. Could not make one tape to tape pass. Couldn't break out of the zone. Couldn't create anything offensively. It pretty much looked like we spent the whole first period practicing defense. As soon as we had the puck, we gave it back.
They scored two goals. Their 3rd goal was lucky, deflected twice and ended up on a stick with an open net. Other than that, we played well in the 2nd-3rd. But as you say, we couldn't finish.

I thought kovalchuk's goal was really lucky. I don't even think he knew where the puck was and went off his stick accidentally.
