We need a defenseman first though.

I remember that too. I even remember where I was that night! But I couldn't remember the exact score. So is this really the last 14 goals game?

8-5, highlighted by Craig Rivet's breakaway goal.

Eric Brewer ? He's not really that tough, but he's a guy who can hit and can shoot the puck really, really hard.

And then after when all your tough guys are in the box we can still throw out guys like Lucic,Horton,Boychuck,and Stuart
And while Chara is in the box, our speed will destroy your defense.

Funny, it seems like I always remember where I was during those epic games. Sadly, I missed that Avs-Habs game because I was travelling in Kotor, Montenegro. But I remember how happy I was when I saw the result in an Internet cafe...

People forgets the positives tough.


Our youth did good in this game Offensively and did better on the D than most of our Veteran.


Weber got 3 points
Pacioretty 2 goals
Subban 1 G, 1 A

Pacioretty is big and Subban is big enough to play in the NHL. Weber is not that small (same height as Plek and that doesn't stop him from being a good player).


All in all I think the answer is from our young players. I really see us as a dangerous team in 2-3 years when those young guns will be fully prepared for the NHL. Subban is playing like a star player for the last 15 games and Pacioretty is one of the strongest and fastest player ive ever seen in the Habs.

Desharnais also got 1G, 1A.

At this pace, I think Subban could get back in the Calder race very soon... behind Skinner and Couture, of course. He's now pretty much tied up with Fowler and Shattenkirk for points by a rookie defenseman.

The habs are 0-4-0 when Desharnais scores.

When you look at it, 5 goals where scored by our youth tonight. Kind of encouraging isnt it.

You know what, I was going to read through this whole thread and probably not post. But this just irks me.

I've seen Pyatt in real life and forget his listed stats, he's at most 5'9 165. It's not Campbell's fault that Pyatt is such a little ***** and that Martin insists on playing this puke. Pyatt is so weak that it's a danger to his own well being to get into any rough stuff given his pathetic frame. It's part of the game.

Hit the gym Tommy P. If it wasn't for Martin's soft-spot for runts you would never know what a regular season NHL shift even looks like.

Hey Bruins fans and your love him/hate him coach Julien...do what you want...bring up McGratton, put brass knuckles in your gloves for the next game. Run wild, go crazy.

Irrelevant.

How many of you Bruins trolls are actually old enough to remember 1972?

As for the Subban haters, please share your thoughts when he is busy stealing game pucks at the end of a playoff LOSS, like the uber-****** Pronger. Now THERE is maturity for you. Oh, wait, let's hear what Mike Richards has to say about THAT. Is that the paragon of respect Mike? What? What? Whaaaatttt?

Antics like tonight make it so easy to disrespect the Bruins and their organization. I wonder how Neely feels knowing that he can never,ever be a winner like Bobby Orr. What a friggin farce. Oh well...24-5, 24-5 that is the mantra.

Well that's all well and good but do you think Chara thinks that way when he's picking on Patches and Co.

Price had the chance to set an example. Show the Bruins that Thomas getting lit was on their captains shoulders. He buckled when he had a chance to set and example.

It's not like he was busy stopping pucks or anything...

Yeah it is but on the flip side we also need our vets playing at the top of their games too and tonight Gomez and AK were simply pathetic..

I figure if he scores two in a game, the habs will win.

I told my friend when Desharnais scored, we'd lose. I was praying Darche got it.

Trade him to the Bruins and let him score one against us every time they play us.

Yea yea, hockey is business and business isn't personal. Sure, buy into that crap. I don't.
I don't know what kind of pure imbecile would actually get into an actual fist fight with a likable acquaintance, and keep punching him while on the floor, just so you can....bring your level of class down.
That's ********. Price did the right thing. This is hockey, not the freaking UFC.

Old timer's hockey is ********. Tonight was disturbing and it really made me question why fighting is still legal in the NHL. You enjoyed seeing Krejci get KOd and bleed??..You enjoyed seeing Spacek and Hammer pretty much get assaulted??..Do this in the streets and you get arrested. Give two guys a pair a skate and it becomes awright? Freaking ********.

The Bruins clearly sent a message tonight, and the Habs got it... And they got the black eyes to prove it! The Bruins showed that they could impose their will on us physically and that if we meet up in the playoffs, we are in a whole world of trouble. Look what happened when things got rough - Gomez predictably disappeared, Eller continued his best impersonation of being a hockey player, and Kostitsyn couldn't fold the tent quick enough.... Not to mention poor Subban was basically attacked from the beginning and never got any support. And after they mauled us physically and scored 8 goals, they beat the crap out of some of our non fighters. Now poor Moen did alright and Pouliot beat up a guy that barely handled Mike Cammelleri, but overall we were exposed as a small, gutless franchise.

The Bruins sent the message that they will attack us physically and will use their size to intimidate. How will Gauthier respond???

I'd like to see him bring in players like Clarkson, Nystrom, Vandermeer, Neil or someone of that ilk. And if Kostitsyn or Gomez never played another game in a Habs uniform, I wouldn't be disappointed.
Gutless? That's a little much.

What a joke, ex-players must just be rolling their eyes watching this club getting pounded physically. Its like someone made an internal law around 1995, that forbid a Montreal team with a balance of toughness and skill.

Everything that the successful teams had, has been thrown aside, for some new style that nobody understands, but we just have to accept. Our skilled players get taken advantage of, we respond with Lars ****ing Eller, someone who management actively sought out in a trade.

Just disgusting. Can't wait to see how many more sissies and wimps management delivers us from now on.

Your team should always come first. These are the guys you literally live with and bleed with year in and year out.

Throw a bodycheck on a guy in the streets and you'd get arrested. You're only saying this because of how badly exposed our team was tonight. Men against boys.

Eller should pass a hormone test because I'm convinced he's a girl. What a soft POS. Even his prosthetic testicles shriveled up in-game.

He's also not a fighter, so there was a chance he could have gotten hurt with all that clumsy goalie equipment on. As much as I would like to have a Habs player set an example. Price is not the player I want to see do it.
