Bruins SUCKED tonight. And WTF is with those camera angles? I'm sick of seeing the backs of fans' heads.
2004-04-17 09:48:22 PM  
Shait my nightmares are coming true, AGAIN.
2004-04-17 09:50:29 PM  
Red Sox Mojo is now extending to Bruins and Celtics.
2004-04-17 09:52:54 PM  
Les Habs. w00t!
2004-04-17 09:56:02 PM  
As a Lightning fan I like it.
2004-04-17 10:16:03 PM  
I'm very, very pissed. In more ways than one.

/will admit Montreal chicks are better looking than Bruin chicks. Though Bruin chicks would kick pretty girl chicks collective butts in a fight. Much like Boston would beat Montreal. And that beatdown will happen if those freakin Habs even attempt to win the next game.
2004-04-17 10:46:34 PM  
The Bruins better get their act together come Monday night. F'in Habs. I want to see them bleed and cry. If you are going to the game you better make a lot of Farking noise. I want to hear you in Allston. Fark them.

Duke Sucks?

My prediction for the game 7 in Boston: Boston will be ahead, 5-4, when Montreal makes a shift change at 1:04 and brings in Bucky -**bleepin** Dent to score 2 goals and win the series.

WTF ? The Bruins led the series 3-1. Now they're tied up. I almost think they deserve to lose. And I'm a Bruin's fan, in Boston.

P.S. for the post above mentioning the Celts, admit it, they don't have a chance anyways. Would have been better if they were a lottery team anyways.

makes me semi proud to be in montreal. doesnt matter if we beat boston though, we still have no chance of winning the cup.
2004-04-17 11:37:04 PM  
After the Bruins win Monday will it THEN be appropriate to boo the American National anthem? The Habs are the biggest pussies I've seen on ice since Scott Hamilton's Stars on Ice rolled through town. With all of the dives they've taken in these games you'd think Don King was their GM! FROG PUSSIES!
2004-04-17 11:37:57 PM  
I always wondered why they spelled it Canadiens with an E.
2004-04-17 11:38:20 PM  
As a rangers fan, I think I can say, let's go habs! The leafs may break their streak, but it won't be in nearly as great a way as we did it.

and of course

It's spelled that way in french.
2004-04-17 11:45:30 PM  
As a Torontonian...

I'm confused, frankly.

Does my Canadian pride make me cheer for the Habs? Or does my disdain for Quebec make me cheer for the Bruins?

.... Argh. Too confusing. No use thinking about it. Just need to focus on the Leafs OWNING the Sens on Sunday

You did see the Celts tonight, right? It wasn't even close.
2004-04-17 11:47:31 PM  
Imagine if Kovelev didn't pussy out and ran into Souray... 3-2 Habs going back to the Forum-- er... Molson Center.

Europeans are sissies, and the French "Canadiens" are no Joe Tough Guys either.

Your disdain of WQuebec?!?

re: complaint about camera angles and back of people's heads.
Those shadowy heads are the people who sit in the Montreal Canadians Team box. I know because I sat there once, and when I stood up to cheer I could see m head in the tv screen. I had a lot of fun standing and sitting down whenever something important happened to p1ss off the fans watching on tv.

Go Habs... Go Oilers. Fark OFF LEAFS. I hate you.
2004-04-17 11:50:54 PM  
I was at the game, and must say, it rocked! For the 2nd game in a row, Raycroft just wasn't there, and neither were the rest of the Bruins. I'd like to point out that although Boston had been leading the series 3-1, 2 of those victories were very cheap victories, and the games could have gone either way. Congrats to Langdon and Perrault, and just for the record:

2004-04-17 11:51:29 PM  
Vancouver is 20 minutes from forcing game 7 vs Calgary.


2004-04-17 11:52:07 PM  
GO Habs in game 7
2004-04-17 11:52:36 PM  

If any farker is going to the next games drop me an email at g­epeto[nospam-﹫-backwards]wocn­ei­l­a*c­om - we can grab an 8.25$ beer together !
2004-04-17 11:54:49 PM  
Bah. Go Bruins! Crush the Habs in game 7! Then the Spiffy tag will be correct if used.
2004-04-17 11:57:19 PM  
As long as Calgary beat the Canucks and SJ wins the Cup I don't care. I'd prefer Montreal to win this series. Not really a Vancouver fan.

Playoff season is the best time of the year for sports.
2004-04-17 11:57:41 PM  
Why are Les Canadiens called the Habs, anyway? Any Quebecois (sp?) farkers know?
2004-04-17 11:57:45 PM  
Ah.... just like the olden days.

Even if montreal loses i don't think any boston fan will be able to deny that quebec has the hottest chicks in north america. that is all.
2004-04-17 11:58:18 PM  
Habs will beat the bruins on monday.
It's the only possible issue,
unless of course the bruins play like they did on game 1, which is the only game they had really deserved to win.

As for fans heads in front of the cam.. yeah it sucks...
big time...

fark BOSTON !!!!! GO HABS GO !!!!
2004-04-17 11:58:23 PM  
Go Flyers!

Thus...Go Bruins.
2004-04-17 11:58:27 PM  
"Bah. Go Bruins! Crush the Habs in game 7! Then the Spiffy tag will be correct if used."

See, that's exactly Boston's problem. They thought all they had to do was run out on the ice, throw their weight around, and the victories would come. Instead, the speed and skill of the Canadiens are making them look stupid out there. Even Thornton can't get anything going. If Boston wants to win, Raycroft's going to have to start crapping out horseshoes.
2004-04-17 11:58:48 PM  
As somebody at the game put it, 'Baseball is back, why don't you all just pay attention to your bloody Sox and leave the Stanley Cup where it belongs"

2004-04-17 11:59:10 PM  
Habs is short for 'Les Habitants'.
2004-04-17 11:59:27 PM  
Lando Griffin

Habs is for Habitents (sp?), which means farmer in English. When the Candiens first formed most of the players were farmers outside of Montreal and would travel into town to play games.
2004-04-18 12:01:35 AM  

"Habs", it's short for "les habitants"... that means "people of the land". real old saying.
2004-04-18 12:03:11 AM  
ThrnPhl - re: Habs - thanks for the info, I always wondered about that.
2004-04-18 12:03:25 AM  
"Even if montreal loses i don't think any boston fan will be able to deny that quebec has the hottest chicks in north america. that is all."

Canadian chicks are hot not because they are prettier than American chicks, but aren't pretentious (Pretentious ? WTF ) like Boston women. Lived in Vegas, girls were nice, lived in Boston, and, well, you'd have to see it to know what I mean.

2004-04-18 12:05:09 AM  
Merci. (That's it for the French. I 'studied' Spanish.) Is that stuff about Quebecois women true? Between that DeNiro/Norton/Brando movie (The Score?) and the stories of my buddies, Montreal sounds like a really cool town.
2004-04-18 12:05:23 AM  
nice, go habs

do your fans proud.
2004-04-18 12:05:45 AM  
And lets not pound too hard on the Tonoto Maple Leaf. It's nice they are sending a viable team this ear.

The hockey Gods will see fit to send the Lightning to us, if only we can vanquish the Ottawa team which stole the team from Hamilton, only to suffer bankrupcy
2004-04-18 12:05:58 AM  
There were Chicks screaming GO HABS GO downtown 2 hours after the game... fans are crazy here, only 6th game of the first round, imagine what it would be if we had a real team!
2004-04-18 12:07:13 AM  
Both teams suck. I like the long series though because it gives the good teams time to rest.

"Even if montreal loses i don't think any boston fan will be able to deny that quebec has the hottest chicks in north america. that is all."

No, San Diego has the hottest chicks in North America.
2004-04-18 12:07:24 AM  
Yeah but real fans know what that the H in the center of the C on the jersey doesn't mean Habs.
There was a reporter from NY who thought that it stood for Habitants. In reality it's Le Club de Hockey.
Amazing that the nickname has stood this long over a mistake.
2004-04-18 12:07:25 AM  
And what about dude that knocked his teeth off the boards tonight (I think it was Begin, but I might be wrong). He went right back out with a full face guard, and kept on playing. That takes character.
