When the Internet wakes up today, all we will hear about is the blown call from the refs that would have tied the game for the Habs. You won’t hear about the awful call midway through the second period on Tenk, which was one of the worst penalty calls in about five years.
Whatever the case, this game was a reminder of what the world champs can do. Probably one of the best skating games of the season. Game wouldn’t have been close but Carey Price was his usual self and eventually turned into a turd.
The powerplay is just warming up. There is a pulse.
P.S. — After the jump, details about Festivus at Calico Jack’s.
“Went to the Pens@Habs game tonight in Montreal. It was… strange.
I’m glad we got the win, don’t get me wrong, but I’m pretty sure I lost some of my hearing with all the boos around me when that Habs goal got refused. It’s a stupid rule. Still, a rule’s a rule and I know it has happened to other teams too. A bad break is a bad break. Take it or leave it. I’ll take the win.
Here are my anthem pics, you don’t have to take em. They’re very blurry, we were sitting in the grey section of the Bell Center which is almost the nosebleeds…
Speaking of nosebleeds… the Habs fans in my section were SO drunk. At the end of the second period, there was a big fight in the section. They kicked out like 10 drunk Habs fans and their girlfriends. It was ridiculous. Some guys were bleeding pretty bad. I don’t know how it started. Probably one classless drunk called another’s girlfriend a slut or something like that…
Whatev. Only in Montreal. (which is a great city of course, but the fans are douchebags)
Last fail of life: during the pregame, they put on the jumbotron the lifetime stats of the Habs against the… what? (see joined picture)
The Habs were getting swarmed for the first few minutes. Decent chances, but nada.
A Penguin 2-on-1 comes to nothing. Habs do nothing in return. Pens get control and the Canadiens zone looks like the ending to the Three Amigos, but with white jerseys. Scott Gomez makes an appearnce on his way to cash a paycheck.
The rest of the period was like watching the Harlem Globetrotters beat up a Cub Scout troop.
Could have been 9-0. But Carey Price was our El Guapo.

Advantage Habs. Battle on the board. Puck ends up on Dago-stini’s stick.
He avenges that ethnic slur with a snipejob.
Here come the Habs. A mob ends up in front of Fleury. Naturally, a Kostitsyn is involved.
Someone jobs Fedotenko into the net and Feds gets called for intentionally dislodging it.
horrible horrible call.
But the Penguins fight back. Nothing fancy, just hard-hitting, aggressive hockey.
They were Disco dancing on the ice. Staal to Gonchar. Cookie redirect. 2-2.
Chris Lee had lost sight it and had blown the whistle.
Crowd begins RAINING boos as Lee looks like he’s contemplating Southwest airline fares.
- Put those line combos against any in the league. when koon comes back? Huge.
