I hope Pacioretty continues hitting Chara like he did before the incident.

I wish we had as many points as the Bruins Might as well have saved the travel expenses and stayed home.

Last nights win was a good start, but 2 wins vs bruins would be an emotional turning point for the team, bruins aren't great, but given last season it would be a huge boost

i wanna see patches get boo'd, and then score while getting boo'd

And get slashed in the wrist, draw a slashing penalty, go to the dressing room and come back 1 shift later and score on the same Powerplay.

Feels like the season's finally starting. I'm sure some of you feel the same way - that there's the NHL - But that Boston and Montreal have their own private 2 team league, that it's somehow separate, and that fans of other teams just don't get it.

With both teams being stuck in neutral to start the year - if either team sweeps then somebody is going to be sweating by the end of the weekend.

Can't wait to watch it.

Speaking of yahoos, I wonder if Jack Edwards is going to congratulate Patches for his return and strong start to the season.

Whenever I need a good laugh, I just load up a Jack Edwards clip on youtube.

Someone has to record him, and let him listen to it. I'm not sure he knows how idiotic he sounds.

We actually have a decently sized team, upfront anyways.

Mike Blunden - 6'4 218
Erik Cole - 6'2 210
Mathieu Darche - 6'1 215
Lars Eller - 6'2 200
Andrei Kostitsyn - 6'1 215
Travis Moen - 6'2 215
Petteri Nokelainen - 6'1 205
Max Pacioretty - 6'2 200

Problem is, nobody can fight other than Moen ...

Fighting isn't that important I guess, but against the Bruins, if they start gooning it up and fighting, I absolutely HATE seeing the Habs get bullied around like that!

All they have to do is not get sucked in. I know sometimes it's tough not to. The game last year with all the fights and Pyatt getting his head clocked with an elbow pad must have been tough. But you don't need to answer the bell. Don't play into their game plan. Just protect the goalie, and play hockey.

Yeah, but it's for games like these that I would have Alex Henry up with the club and either replacing someone like Diaz or playing on the 4th line.

Of course they'll boo. They think every Hab has a big bucket of ketchup hidden under their uniforms to fake bleeding.

That's old time hockey. We now have them in small packets under silicone patches on the skin surface.

Pacioretty is 208, if that helps.

Isn't Pacioretty a Yankees fan too? That probably adds to his dislike of Boston fans.

Indeed that helps

But canadiens.com actually have him at 196. I knew he was bigger so I just put 200.

It has Akost at 6'0, but you don't use that from the habs site...

And my sister never understood what was the beef between Montreal and Boston. She said that the Habs could have a rivalry against any other team but then I said that it dates back to the early days Boston started icing an NHL team.

A couple of things they should try tonight:

Play Spacek and Weber way more than Diaz and Gill. Gill's lack of mobility coupled with Diaz's inexperience has led to a plethora of turnovers in our zone, and to clear cut chances and goals. For some reason though, Martin keeps showing more confidence in this pair than that of Spacek's, which is clearly a more solid duo. Are biggest problem this year is getting the puck out of own zone, and the Gill pairing is the poster child for bad zone clearances.

Replace Plekanec with Spacek at the point. Seriously, i just don't get what Martin is waiting for. You already play Plekanec way too much as it, why saddle him with a duty that he has barely any experience at, and probably distract him from doing his other tasks well? Spacek is perfectly capable of playing the point, he's done it his whole life. wake the eff Martin!!!

It is in fact puzzling how he manages to f.u. so much on line combos and still keep his job. This is also a major conversation point on the Habs Usenet group.
