In a way it was worst because we started that year so well and the way we were beating everybody was fantastic like I had never before. And we were even first place overall(!!!) for quite sometime. But then Julien changed our style, we started doing the trap and we began started losing, and losing....and losing...and losing. Until we made the playoffs from the back door.

I will always remember those back-to-back games against the Rangers. Those were the turning point. First game in Montreal was such an exciting game, constant back-and-forth between the teams, wide-open hockey with good hits too. But the Habs lost. Next game, Julien decided enough is enough(because all those wins were bad, right) so we played ultra defensive and completly stopped the best Rangers players like Jagr and so forth. We won, but it was biter sweat I remember(is this hockey I thought?). What's funny is that it became a great lesson to all coachs outthere that are obssessed by their players making defensive mystakes. See the Habs were the best in the league at that time by the coach letting them play. Once we did the trap everything went crashing down. So not only the team kept losing, but they were boring as Hell too.

Bruins Collaspe of 1992

The Bruin's won the president's trophy and went out in 4 straight.

Buffalo's four-game sweep of the Bruins ended with a memorable overtime goal by Brad May at Buffalo's Memorial Auditorium, leading to Swords play-by-play announcer Rick Jeanneret's famous "May Day! May Day! May Day!" call.

Game 1 of the Stanley Cup finals of '05/'06 - blowing the 3-0 lead and the Ty Conklin incident comes to mind.

2003, leading Minnesota (no name at that time) 3 games to 1 we somehow manage to lose game 7 in OT and that ended arguably the greatest goalie's career (Patrick Roy). That "guy" who scored is now a big part of the Colorado Avalanche today, Andrew Brunette.

This year's Oilers? We're rattled with injuries (Tjarnqvist, Moreau, Stoll, Pisani) We haven't won 3 games in a row since December, our Defence is struggling badly(I miss Pronger) we're great at giving up 3 goal leads(Patrik Stefan blunder game, we were winning that game 4-1 at one point). Lowe still hasn't signed Smyth, and we still don't have a puck moving D-man. I won't be surprised if we miss the playoffs.

im with you bud.

the habs are on their way to lose a 5th game in a row. we're 8-16-1 (after tonight's loss) and we've been spiraling into oblivion since the accursed december 23rd loss (habs havent won a game on december 23rd for something like 50 years).

nobody knows how this team went from 21-8 to a sudden 29-24....

it was...just like that...not even gradual...we dont even have any injuries...total mystery

Oh it'd still be nice to be in your shoes. While Duck fans are talking collapse by moaning "Nooo! We aren't good enough to win the cup, OMG!" Hab fans (ok, and Oilers fans) are shouting "Nooo! We're not bad enough to finish in the top 5 lottery for the draft!"
