Best Habs games of that pathetic season

In your opinion, what were the top 5 games of the Habs regular season ? Are there any games you'd like to watch again during that very long offseason ?

Long season, and not many games to remember, but a couple good one's were the spanking of the Leafs 5-0 on the Sundin night... and the Detroit game, where we came out flying, and won 7-2 were a couple of the games I can recall that felt great...

Lars Eller's 4 goal game and Cole's hat trick. The Detroit game. Another one when we annihilated the Sens...

And the first game in Winnipeg, an actual historical event.

The Sundin night by far

There's no player I hated most than him, and that made up for all those years of pent up loathing. He even tried to screw with us when he retired by allowing himself to be traded for a pick and getting our hopes up. He was the ultimate Habs troll. And I shudder when I think of those crappy commercials for Campbell soup (?) where he looked even more snobbish than usual. Quelle face de claque.

Sundin night, Lars Eller's 4 goals and the 7-2 thrashing of Detroit.

I also enjoyed the game I went to, a 3-2 win over Buffalo in the SO, it was my first Habs game and Pacioretty and Desharnais both scored in the SO.

Definitely the 5-0 drubbing of the Leafs on Sundin night was memorable, as was the shellacking of Detroit. Cole's natural hat trick in the Sens game, and his high fiving the ref was great too. Those are my top 3.

Going to be a long off-season.

Beating the Flyers 5-1, the back to back wins against the Bruins and the 4-1 win in Vancouver. When they wanted, they could play with the best.

Awards:
1. Running over the Red Wings, beating them 7-2.
- Although it was quite the off-night for the Wings, it was still fun to see the Habs fill the net up against the power house and win the game. The Desharnais-Cole-Pacioretty line combining for four goals on the night while Emelin scored his first NHL goal.

2. Ruining Winnipeg's home opener, beating them 5-1.
- Coming off a 2-0 loss against Toronto to open up the season, it was great to see the boys having fun and netting a few goals. Cammalleri also scored his first of the year with the beauty snipe that we were used to watching last year. Too bad it couldn't last. It was also fun to see Winnipeg's crowd. Great atmosphere.

3. Eller scores four goals, Habs beat the Jets 7-3.
- At a time where some were obsessed with the fact that Cunneyworth could not speak French, Eller put that to rest for one night. Scoring four goals and named as the first star, the great Dane got a standing ovation normally reserved for a legend making an appearence at the Bell Centre.

4. Habs beat Toronto 5-0, ruin Mats Sundin's night.
- Nothing like honoring a former Leaf that use to take pleasure ruining the Habs in games, only to have to sit there and watch his former team get run over.

5. Habs lose to Toronto 3-1, I attended the game.
- Even though the Habs lost, I enjoyed the game with my son at the Bell Centre on his 6th birthday that night. We were really pumped and my son loved the game. We got to see a Brown-Staubitz fight, some really good hits, a goal by Cole and even some pre-game shenanigans between Emelin/Geoffrion and Kessel.

For a really terrible season we surprisingly got our share of huge blow-out wins against better teams. A good sign for our core players and the next season.

I'd add the 4-1 win over the Rangers.
