What this game demonstrated is the potential of the Canadiens' forwards to score. Unfortunately, we have disgusting dead weight which hinder our productivity. If the Gomez line had not been humiliatingly awful, this outcome may have concluded in our favor. As far as I am concerned the experiment is over and Andrei ought look for a new address. Evidently, nothing can be done in regards to Gomez but we can deal AK.
Darren Duteschyn Just Referred to the Bruins as "We"
"We showed them tonight."
This dense tubby man-child is such a pathetic loser. Looks like he should be sucking on a root beer lolly and wearing a "beanie". He's been fawning over the Bruins and hating on the Habs for years now. How come noone ever calls him on it?
I wonder what was going through Pyatts head when JM told him he was on for that shift. I actually feel really bad for him. Probably the nicest guy on the team and he has to drop them because our team is full of non fighters.
Also, Benny goes unnoticed with the KO of Krejci. Ference thought he was so tough with his little slash there too.
Exactly..the smurf brigade on Montreal won 2 straight fights and the Big Bad bOOINS ego took a huge hit so their tough guys had to respond by fighting our non-fighters.
Our defense was just **** tonight. Gave up too many odd man rushes, clear lanes to the net and some stupid decisions by Spacek, Gomez and Subban. Price made some saves after it was 2-0 but then couldn't after that.
Important to note Thomas just is not the VEZINA calibre goalie against us...we are in his head.
I don't care about the result. This game was pure gold, pure entertainment. That's probably one of the best, if not THE best game we have had this year. Epic.
I agree, a team builder if there ever was one. i would rather us lose a game like this one than the one we lost against Jersey. I wish Pouliot would show some more of this grit. I loved his fight last year against the Rangers and I loved this one even more. GO HABS!!!!
Welcome to the Jacques Martin world, where fighting is prohibited, thus not getting any thugs to help the team.
This is the EXACT, SAME, SAME pattern than when the Laffs were the Bruins and the Hens were the Habs. Quinn used the same tactics during games after the All-Star break, just to shake up the Hens a bit. And get into their heads with the physicality aspect of the game. It worked against Martin at the time, and it will work again.
Bruins like to dominate physically, thats their history...Fans wants to win win fights and be tough.........not win games.....Winning is secondary....thats why they havent won anything since we went on Mars....
Come on people, wake up. Ok say we get 1 tough guy like Chris Neil wats he gonna do? take on all the boston bruins? our team isn't built with size we rely on our speed to beat teams. We OWNED the Bruins winning the last 8 of 10 ok. Did you see the Bruins fans saying stupid things like "oh my god we need to get smaller and faster guys in order to compete with the habs".
We dont need big goons we need tough players ala Moen but with scoring touch. We just gotta play our game and we'll be successful. Our top scorer and two of our best defenseman are out, albeit its not excuse but still.
The overreactions on this board is horrendous and over exaggerated...get it together
