Danger Rangers

  • The Canadiens are 0-3 against the Rangers this year. Including most recently giving up a 3-0 lead at home en route to a 5-3 loss.

    The Rangers have had a very up and down season, but for whatever reason pull it together when playing the Canadiens.

    If the Canadiens cannot catch Ottawa and happen to finish 4th in the East they would likely play a middle of the pack team from the Atlantic Division. The Rangers are a very possible candidate for a 1st round playoff matchup. As are the Flyers who the Habs just handled fairly easily.

    Expect Playoff intensity tonight. Expect Hollweg to go after Kovalev.

    At this point of the season you have to believe the Canadiens realize where they stand. They know they are in a good spot, they are confident, they know they can compete with good teams.

    All that’s left to do now is execute.

  1. This will be a game that gives Bob Gainey more insight,”leave it or fix it” I hope we beat em badly,go habs!

  2. Someone has gotta step up and use their bodies to hand out some hard hits to these guys…..they banged and beat us around last game which helped them gain the momentum to win. I know we’re not a big team and these guys are giants, but this is an insight to playoff hockey that we have to overcome or we’re going nowhere, despite the great regular season we’re having.

    Hollweg, Avery, Orr…..these guys have to be put in their place right away by someone or its gonna be the same outcome…..Carbo, pick a couple of sacrifical lambs to go toe to toe with these guys….get them off the backs of Kovy and the scorers….let them do their jobs racking up points, and the rest will fall into place….a few cracks at Jagr and Gomez would help things also…get to their start before they get to ours….put them on the defensive this game….we got more skill, so let the skilled guys do their job, and get the others to “take one or two for the team”. Gotta have crashers and bangers and don’t let em intimidate us physically like last game. Top line vs. top line we can beat em….just keep on rolling and smash these f**kers up. GO HABS GO !!!

  3. How about putting up the Rangers logo instead of the Islanders – all NY’ers don’t look alike!

  4. Kostopoulos out of the lineup for tonight. wrong move! he’s the only forward that hits. unhappy about that. Carbo didn’t learn his lesson from the last meeting with NY.

    You know the Rangers got rough with us last time, but honestly I think we held our own. Though it was a loss I thought it was a great game to bring the players together as a team, sticking up for each other, and getting their hands dirty. I agree though Kostopoulos should be in the lineup.

    should have kostopoulos in and lats out . then you have a line of
    Kostopoulos / Begin / Dandy to play against Hollweg and them….. right of the start let them know that we can play both ways ….hitting and speed
    GO HABS GO ….

    price is starting it said on the score.

  11. Look for a scrap at the getgo!…and theres gonna be “the running of the goaltenders tonight”!!
    Emery and KOMI are going to go at it…and Dury and Lovalev gonna mix it up…Kovalev is 225 folks ..he aint pushed around as easy as you guyz may think…goals by Plekanek, Koivu, A.Kostitsyn…..just a guess…

  12. Well We lost.

  13. i knew we would lose. We aren’t nearly as good as NY, WE NEVER EVER BEAT THEM! GAME OVER! AND WE NEVER SHOW UP FOR GAMES WITH THEM!

  14. ..they will come back and score 4 straight goals…a miracle sent by the late late Rocket Richard…yaghr gets hurt, Avery loses and eye, and carbo makes a goal change after the first….one of them has to come true!…lol..lol..its funny really..its justa game!

    Price pulled 3 goals ….game not over yet came back against Jersey so anything can happen…..REMEMBER LAST TIME WE HAD THE 3 GOAL LEAD … LETS HOPE WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND….TIME TO PULL IT TOGETHER
    GO HABS GO

  16. I think the Habs are way over their heads here. I don’t know why everyone says 1st place. They give Price that effort?! 11-3 are the shots! The only team I would be confident going against is Boston. I never bet on Montreal. They really arent that good, they just have alot of overtime losses.

  17. I’ll only be ok If they score a goal before the 2nd. or at least get momentum

  18. Yup ..ending the period where the puck is supposed to be..behind our net..ahahahahah!

    i don’t have rds so i was wondering if the goals were price’s fault?

  20. If the habs play this way in the playoffs, 1st round, out 4 STRAIGHT!
    what I don’t understand, is why every time we play the rangers,we don’t show up? When was the last time we beat them? or at least put an effort in?
    This teams lacks heart. it’s the only way to describe their lacklustre play in such an important game. If you can’t get up for a game like this, when then?

  21. time to watch american idol! what a horrible horrible lack of effort! embarrassing! Gainey better make a trade NOW!!!!!!!

  22. wow what a pass!..c’omon its a good goal..hahaahahahah
