  1. YESSS! 2-1 Been listening to this one on the radio so I didn't get to watch it, but it was just as satisfying. .500 here we are. Now we build up from here..
  2. If we're still sitting at .250 when we get to 15 games played, i'll be worried... real worried. For now, i'm reasonably sure this is statistical quirk. The habs aren't playing great but they aren't playing horribly either. I think the law of averages will kick in and the Habs will win games in good time. The real danger is if the losing continues, despite reasonably good play, then the players will get discouraged/demotivated and then they'll play bad, real bad, and lose games even more.
  3. Bruins win. The team who's players would literally give the middle-finger to opposing fans and resort to dishonorable thuggery wins the cup. It seems terribly unjust, and it definitely sucks, but what goes around will come around. The Bruins have amassed a mountain-load of bad karma and it'll bite them in the ass sooner or later. Enjoy your cup, Boston. You won't get another for decades. As for Vancouver.. looks like they couldn't get it done. The Canadian teams can't seem to bring home the cup. It's going to have to be up to the Habs I tell ya!
  4. Tied series... Tied game... Overtime... Winner takes all. GO HABS GO!
  5. Nice! Thanks for the updates! Looks like the Bruins caughht up a bit in shots near the end of the period, but 1-0 after 20 minutes is a good position to be in. Hopefully the Habs keep their foot on the pedal and don't let up.. Boston is going to be coming hard.. GO HABS GO
  6. I'm at work so i can't watch, but by looking at the boxscore it seems like tha Habs are all over the Bruins! 1-0!
  7. I feel like we've been violated. NHL on Chara: "We took into consideration that Chara has not been involved in a supplemental discipline incident during his 13-year NHL career." Awesome. Can I use this too? "But officer, during my 13-years driving, i've never once received a fine for speeding. Clearly i'm exonerated!" Idiots. Somebody has to die before the NHL wakes up. Eff you, Bettman. Eff you.
  8. I don't buy the "I didn't know where I was" excuse. For the entire duration of the play, Chara's head is facing the boards. The boards and the incoming post are clearly within line of sight. These players are professionals that know where they are at all times. On top of that, we can clearly see in the video that he had line-of-sight at very moments leading right up to the hit. Even if he didn't truly intend to shove Max's face in there, it was still, objectively, an insanely dangerous play on its own and warrants (in my view) a 10-game suspension (minimum)
  9. I just showed the video to 4 friends of mine in Texas that are Dallas Stars fans, I didn't say anything and just said: "hey guys, have a look at this." Their reactions included "holy cheap shot", "wow now that's intent to injure, steered him right in like that" and "ouch.. that's a 10-game suspension right there" As Habs fans, we naturally have a certain bias, but taking a step back and looking at this with a certain sense of objectivity, i STILL don't see how anyone can clear Chara of any blame. I've watched the replay 30 times now. Chara knew full well what he was doing.
  10. Wow.. what a.. game... I'll try to be as civil as possible: Chara is a disgusting human being. What a senseless, violent, unsportsmanlike attack. Max got rid of the puck a full 2-3 seconds before Chara suckers him like that. That's intent to injure, no matter how you cut it. Suspended for the rest of the season in my books.
  11. Pedal to the metal! Great 2-0 start! 9-1 in shots... no time to sit back. Keep pushing!
  12. Wow the Habs mopped the floor with the Sens tonight. The Habs train keeps on rolling and i've very happy about that, although i can't help but feel a little bad for the Sens, who are my second (very distant second, but still) favourite team. They need to do some major work. Poor Kovalev must be depressed haha. At the end of the day though, 2 pts is 2 pts and a 7-1 win is good for morale and confidence! GHG!
  13. I've watched the replay a few times and it seemed like MaxPac was gliding towards Chara and just kind of shoved him a bit to steer him away. It was a small push too, but still, from Chara's perspective, ending 3-2 after being up 2-0, he was probably really pissed. He had no business stirring up crap like that even with the little tap MaxPac gave him. He shoved at least one official too. I hope he gets a suspension EDIT: Ah dlbair beat me to the facts. Thanks for the info!
  14. Exciting shootout -- it's been a while What a calm, and simple play by Pouliot. It almost seemed like he wasn't trying at all, like it was child's play. "Oh i'll just go over here, and woops, extend my stick, la la la, there we go. Cya" Also LOL @ Price's victory pose, arms crossed
  15. Down 2-0 is not insurmountable. I'm not throwing in the towel just yet! Habs will bounce back in the third.
  16. I don't qualify Lapierre's behavior as an "act". I just think of it as part of his personality as a player. He loves to taunt, he loves to mock and he loves to get under your skin. He destabilizes the opposing team mentally. The best part is, these benefits are "off the ice", so his actual on-ice play is not compromised. Add to the fact he's a pretty good player.. and i like what he brings to the table. It's easy to invoke the image of Beliveau and his honorable and noble traits, but do you honestly think for a second that during Beliveau's time there wasn't intimidation, taunting and mocking going around? There was plenty of that back then too! I say let Lapierre do his thing. He messes with the opponent and that's good in my books. Go Lapierre!
  17. ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED We have our turning point. Bring on game 4!
  18. Once Habs score a goal, the floodgates will be opened.
  19. Ok, i went measured the stop sign at the corner of my street and i got my duct tape. To do a nice job, i decided to create a giant sticker of sorts that will go directly over the sign. This way i can cut the tape and make the letters nice. I'll post pics when i'm done Hopefully any passing police officers will be Habs fans too I'll peel the sticker off after the playoffs.
  20. I live on a very quiet street and I lost a bet so i'm going to have to Halak-ify a stop sign nearby. What's the best way to go about doing this? I don't want to vandalize (i'm a law abiding citizen) but i don't want the "modification" to be cheap either. I was thinking cover up the "STOP" with red duct tape, then "draw" HALAK with white duct tape. This way i'm not damaging the Stop Sign and it can be easily peeled off. Thoughts?
  21. At the onset of this series, i had said: "Brain says caps in 6. Heart says habs in 7." I should listen to my heart more often! :hlogo:
