Missed part of the 2nd. Boy, if people feel things are bad in Mtl, I wonder how it would be if we were in Boston. They really aren't good. I don't know if it's only versus us because I don't really watch them, but it seems all they want to do is hit players. I feel like this is drilled so much into their mind that they forget to play sometimes.
To be fair however, Price did make some very key saves. But that's part of his job.

Honorable mention to Spacek, solid game. I'm very glad he's back, it brings a bit more stability. I knew a big reason why management signed him a year past Hammer's deal was because they viewed him as his replacement for an extra year, which would give youngsters more time to develop. If it remains healthy and keeps playing as he does, he will make Hammer's loss less damaging. However, having Hammer here instead of Gill would have been a huge plus now.

Called the victory versus Philly. Called the win versus the Bruins tonight. Let's complete the prediction and win on Saturday again, and on our way to the Cup we go!

The only thing I didn't like about this game. I don't think we need an enforcer. We need a guy who can fight and play.

Near the end of the game Thornton took a run at Subban twice, and then was trying to get after him at the benches. Then asking him to fight.

All I know that crap don't fly with other teams and other teams have somebody to take care of guys like Thornton.

I know we should stick to the plan, finess and everything. Its just really gets on my nerves down by a goal and they try running our star players and know that nobody is going to come after them, well not anyone who could take them on.

I know we don't need goons, I am not looking for a goon, maybe a Neil type player. It just gets frustrating and were at a point right now that we can't afford to lose anymore players as we are starting to turn a corner in the season.

coolasprIce should be banned from the habs board.

Solid game. Was it just me, or did neither team seem to play 100% ?I swear habs were at 85, Boston at 75.

Good win, nonetheless.

Thornton, like him or not, he's amongst the best in what he does.

PK must calm down.

He is more useful on the ice than in the penalty box.

And I certainly would not like him to be injured in one of these useless fights.

Metropolit has really good hands, especially in close. Darche does not.

Considering this was the second game we played in 24 hours, i'll give them the benefit for some mistakes here and there. However, it was a very good effort.

Lol, what?

Thornton is a good fighter and all, but I'd bet that you can't find a single video proving this claim - or even one that shows Thornton winning a fight against Laraque.

Agreed. It's funny because if some of the stuff he says would be said by a Bruins fan, they'd probably get removed from the boards for some time. He openly admits that he is not a fan, so technically he is trying to agitate us.

I'm getting tired of these fans hoping that we lose to satisfy their own personal opinions.

Jessica Rusnak on Twitter with another great one.....And Bruins fans will not be happy if they hear about this.

Seems that Marchand and Subban are friendly with each other. They joked together about the fight after it happened. Being that they won the Gold together, seems that there's no animosity towards them....

And Marchand takes a NOSE dive as far as the love the fans have for him.....

This team is resilient. Didn't let a bad goal get them down. I like the push back, I like the drive.

I hope everyone who called for Price's head after that bad goal learnt a valuable lesson tonight.

Well how about the start of that fight?



How about this one?



Laraque dominates usally all of his opponents. But Thornton usually gives him a good scrap. I mean, it's all great to hate him but we'd gladly take him on our side.

Looks pretty bad actually. Once Laracque tags him with 2 or 3 shots, Thornton held on till it ended. Thornton in my opinion is a "light-heavyweight". Which is better than what we currently have, not in Laracque's league though imo.

Jess is great (call me Jess!), I remember Marchand texted Subban after he smashed him too, I was surprised they actually fought tonight.

She also tweeted that the PA announcer congratulated Gill on his 1000 games, classy move by them. Too bad the fans booed...

You obviously don't remember the quote from Thornton after that first one, something to the effect, "I wouldn't want BGL punching me while I was down, so I had to let him back up"

He won both by 'takedowns'. The first fight in actual fighting, BGL destroyed him, in second it was even and Thornton got takedown as well so I'll give it to thornton.

Best thing about this win, we are no where near 100% and we still beat them. We are so far in their head like we have been the last few years. You know they dread playing us...I like that!

I know he's not. Laraque will be remembered as one of the best ever. Yet, I've never seen Laraque being overpowered physically like he was at the start of the first fight. And actually, don't remember Laraque losing a fight pretty clearly like we see in the 2nd vid. Though in all honesty, there are other fights between these 2 that Laraque won easily. Yet, I would not expect Laraque to lose anything against, like you call it, a light-heavyweight.

That's a better find, but I'd wager that the weight difference was much less substantial back then. Regardless, like I said - Shawn is better than any "fighter" we currently have.

I'd prefer having someone like Souray, someone who can fight, play hockey and offers good leadership. But having a Thornton to deal with the Lucics, Hortons, etc. of the league would be great.
