Habs vs.Sabres - Back To Back Edition

Notes on the third and OT:

-At this point, you have to think they're playing for OT and hoping for the best.

-Gerbe's really throwing his scant weight around. If he keeps it up, the Habs'll have to send Desharnais after him.

-Kostitsyn seems to have rejoined the ranks of the brain dead.

-Best moment of the period, halfway through, is Price thanking Subban for saving a rebound...as the play went on.

-Bulldogs are winning 7-0. They're all auditioning for jobs.

-I think Eller has a case for assault against Myers.

-Gionta is worth twenty of Scott Gomez, no matter what their paychecks say.

-I guess Pominville will get skewered for the way he celebrated that OT goal, right? Riiiigggghhht.

Notes on the second:

-The image of Pacioretty getting carried out on a stretcher is sickening. Something is obviously very, very wrong.

-Thank all good things that P.K. is back.

-There's enough room on the bench for Spacek to bring in his keg.

-Halpern's back. The walking wounded.

-Pierre McGuire's Homoerotic Comment of the Period: "Mathieu Darche does so many good things for Jacques Martin. So, so many."

-Spacek has to be the most panicky D on the ice.

-The thing I hate most about Gomez is his passing backwards. The Ds work so hard to move the puck up, then he can't find a path he likes, so he passes it back into his own zone and makes them do it all over again.

-All tied up, despite the refs, the injuries and the tired legs. I can hope for a heroic third, right?

Notes on the first:

-Well, I'd never pegged Craig Rivet as an asshole before, but I guess looking at life after hockey from close up can make a guy cranky.

-Gord Miller calls: "Moen with the puck in his feet." Better there than in his hands, Gord.

-Oh crap! Cammalleri hit the boards hard there.

-Oh my God! Now Pacioretty? What the hell is going on here?! This is why people are afraid to go to the front of the net.

-Graham Rynbend is getting more ice than anyone else on the team.

-DD with the gorgeous tip. What a great little player he is.

-Idiot, Wizzer! You can't act dumber than Kaleta!

-Price made an excellent first save, but AK saved the rebound. That's not something you write everyday.

-Gionta nearly gave the bench a heart attack when he winced on contact with the puck. No more wincing!

-And just as I say that, Subban's down. What the hell is going on here?

have always wondered about the origin of "Pierre McGuire's Homoerotic Comment of the Period"...where does this come from ?

I'm starting to think some of the Canadiens' players don't appreciate Subban's attitude because he attracts cheap shots from opponents that risk getting them hurt... after tonight's game (hits on Halpern, Cammy), I think I have a point...

Rumour has it that Gomez didn't like Subban's celebration last night. Lack of respect, and all that. I wonder what Subban thinks of Gomez's brain-dead penalty at the end of the third? After all the other Habs keep their composure and refuse to get drawn into penalties (including the Wiz after that Gaustad hit), Gomez gives up the game in a fit of pique. What a putz.
