PRE-GAME RANT

Well, so far we’ve got the Habs number this season, although we’ve only played them once…  It was way back on October 10th, when the Oil were healthy and the fans were excited.  A 3-2 win for the home team.  My oh my how the times have changed.  We’re heading into Montreal to play against a team that appears to be coming together at the right time for a playoff push.  Winners of 4 of their last 5, they’re probably looking forward to this match up more than we are.  This is Montreal’s last game against a Western opponent, so their playoff chances look good.  In the pipes Deslauriers has looked a lot more comfortable lately, but some of my dodgy sources are reporting Dubnyk will get the start tonight.  For the Oil, Minard has been called up and will likely see some action as Moreau is questionable, and O’Sullivan is hanging out at home.

GAME NOTES

– Moreau made the road trip with the team.
– Patrick O’Sullivan did not make the road trip.
– Chris Minard has been recalled by the team.
– Could get confusing tonight with two Kostitsyns and two Pouliots.  Look to hear frustration from the announcing team.
– Early start tonight, so don’t work too late.

    Not that I am cheering for a win, but I would love to see us wipe the smirks off the Hab’s fans faces. Especially since the Eastern media has all but declared this game already over and the win in the bag.

  2. Trogdor says:

    Moreau is out for tonight, and it sounds like Minard will line up with Gagner and Pouliot. I guess that would mean Nilsson will play with Cogs and Brule.

  3. Trogdor says:

    Wow, turned the TV on just in time to see us get lit up on possibly the first shot, then we come back and do the same. Not the start I expected, and bang, we’re up 2-1!

    Any records for getting scored on with the first shot this season?

  4. Trogdor says:

    4 goals in 10 minutes? Bet Dubnyk was happy when the boys got the lead back, but it didn’t last long. Things need to settle down a bit, although it’s been an entertaining pace so far.

  5. gr8one says:

    Minard is looking pretty good.

  6. Trogdor says:

    This powerplay is making us look like peewees. Don’t take any more penalties.

  7. Racki says:

    Damn it i forgot it was an early one.

  8. gr8one says:

    why does the the “scoring by period” box have “ANA” beside the Habs logo?

  9. Racki says:

    Hey Trogdor, if you’re paying attention… in the shot box you have “ANA” instead of “MTL” beside montreal’s logo. I’d fix it, but you’re in there and will likely just undo my change if I change it.

  10. gr8one says:

    I know an Ana…she’s really hot.

  11. Racki says:

    Ana likes your Banana?

  12. Racki says:

    I’ve fixed it, until Trogdor inevitably updates it and possibly makes it go back to “ANA”. We run a pretty smooth ship here, as you can see.

  13. Trogdor says:

    I thought we were playing the Anaheim Habs…

  14. Trogdor says:

    Tied up! Penner with some aggression!

    Too bad I have Halak in one of my pools though.

    Scratch that, Cogs swoops in and pots it.

  15. Racki says:

    Formerly the Mighty Habs of Anaheim

  16. Trogdor says:

    Oh man… That looked weak…

  17. gr8one says:

    Ana likes your Banana?

    lol

  18. gr8one says:

    it’s kind of surreal watching Oiler games lately and actually find them to be enjoyable.

    I also to have to think if we were in the East, we might actually be playoff team or at least definitely not fighting for last place.

  19. Trogdor says:

    Win or lose, it’s been a fun one to watch at least tonight. Pretty much wide open.

  20. Racki says:

    I love Theo Peckham, and I’m not afraid to tell the world!

  21. gr8one says:

    bah…and Whitney is hurt.

    is Springfield even going to have a team left to play?

  22. Racki says:

    it’s kind of surreal watching Oiler games lately and actually find them to be enjoyable.I also to have to think if we were in the East, we might actually be playoff team or at least definitely not fighting for last place.

    Yah for sure… their definitely is a big difference between East and West play.

    4-3 Montreal…

  23. Trogdor says:

    Aww… Tucks it under the bar.

  24. Racki says:

    bah…and Whitney is hurt.is Springfield even going to have a team left to play?

    I saw them point out what happened, but did they say how bad it was?

  25. Racki says:

    Wow, Horcoff! He’s picked it up a bit post Olympic break, no?

  26. Trogdor says:

    Horcs? WTF?!?!? Hooray though!

  27. gr8one says:

    lol..just terrible goaltending across the board in this game…wth happened to Halak’s Oly form?

    I picked him up in one of my pools and it’s kinda not working out to well.

  28. Trogdor says:

    Halak was a bit weak on that one. One of those goals the coach can point out to kids. Shoot and see what happens!

    Penner, so close!

  29. Racki says:

    Holy, Penner! I thought the scouting report on him was that he was slow….? Always said his speed was underrated. Markov may have been tired though, but still I think Penner is quicker than he appears.. he just tends to conserve a lot of his energy at times… :P

  30. gr8one says:

    I saw them point out what happened, but did they say how bad it was?

    no…I was more ranting than anything.

    I saw it happen, he blocked a shot and hobbled off the ice, but I really have no idea how bad it is.

  31. gr8one says:

    the leafs are currently half a period away from getting at least one point too.

  32. Trogdor says:

    Penner looks huge next to the Habs.

  33. Trogdor says:

    Didn’t think it was that nice earlier, but that feed from Comrie should have been a goal.

  34. Trogdor says:

    Time to get Arsene on the phone?

  35. gr8one says:

    I keep saying it, but man I <3 Brule.

  36. Trogdor says:

    Penner had to know his man had come on by then. Kind of makes up for the non call on Brule though.

  37. Trogdor says:

    More PP killing in OT. Would suck to end pre shootout when Double D is so close to his first win.

  38. gr8one says:

    Toronto gets at least one point, heading to OT as well, so that’s good.

  39. Trogdor says:

    Horcs! Cmon… Dooby would have bought you dinner.

  40. gr8one says:

    what a game!

  41. gr8one says:

    woo hoo and Toronto wins!

    you’re right Racki, that does feel dirty.

  42. Racki says:

    Horcoff, shootout winner.. book it.

  43. gr8one says:

    man that boy can shoot the puck…damn crossbar.

  44. Trogdor says:

    So many regulation goals, now nothing.

  45. Racki says:

    Welp, a loss, but a good game nonetheless. And 1 point closer to the #1 pick.

  46. gr8one says:

    lol…poor fucking doobie!!!!

    great game though, good effort, entertaining, and Toronto gains a point on us!

  47. Trogdor says:

    Dang. I wonder if Quinn gives the reins back to JDD again now with his win and your in mantra.

  48. Racki says:

    Thanks for looking after tonight’s GDT, Trogdor.. good work!

  49. Trogdor says:

    Canes and Leafs with wins tonight and NYI get 1 point too. Wouldn’t have been a bad night for Devan to get his first win.
