  • The Habs have dominated the Bruins in every sense of the word this season. The domination even stretches back a few years including 1st round playoff upsets on more than one occasion.

    At what point will that streak end?

    You’d have to believe at this point of the season the Bruins are going to come out with something to prove. Considering the Bruins and Habs are a very likely 1st round playoff series, they have even more reason to ‘show up’.

    Can the Habs really go 7-0 against Boston? 8-0? ….Maybe 12-0?

    Anybody know what kind of injury Komisarek has?
    I hope it’s not serious. we can’t afford to lose him or ANY amount of time

    Last hits, no fights,no win… now see what you get when you HIT, FIGHT< you win!
    This may be a God send that Komi is hurt..the BIRON OF BEEF IS COMING!!!!

    Halak should get the start Saturday.

    Don’t want Price to get runned and hurt. The Bruins know that they may play the Habs in the first round. They need to take out the Better Goalie.

  14. If Komi does go down I hope Biron goes in, but don’t be hoping Komi is out just to see biron.

  15. And does anyone know how bad Komisarek’s injury is? It doesn’t really look that bad because he was on for another shift after the injury.

    Does Carbo have something against Kovalev? Why wouldn’t he put him out in the last minute to reward him with a possible hat trick?

  17. #18 Don Carnage says:
    March 21, 2008 at 3:01 pm

    Why question what the coach does all the time? Maybe he did not want him to beheaded by a goon in the last few minutes, seeing as Boston needs to win Saturday and Kovy is the Bruins killer, so just maybe the coach figured its better for Kovy to not be on the ice for the last final assult… who would have thought huh …

    March 21, 2008 at 3:46 pm — The Montreal Canadiens could be without bruising defenceman Mike Komisarek for the second half of their home-and-home series with the Boston Bruins on Saturday.

    Komisarek did not skate with the team in practice on Friday. The team’s hit- and shot-blocking specialist left Thursday night’s game and did not return after getting hit by Milan Lucic of the Bruins. The Canadiens would only specify that it was a lower-body injury.

    Hey Don Carnage i could’nt agree more with you. Would it be worth it to throw your best player on the ice with less then a minute to go and watch him be taken out by a cheap shot? We had the game in the bag and at this point in the season we cant afford to take risks with our best player. Just take a look at how boston ran price and all the other crap boston was throwing are way in the third. Carbo made the right move keeping kovy on the bench.

    We beat a cheap, desperate team last night. Just what the doctor ordered to shake the
    Blues away.

    And if Komi is out for the short term it is not a problem either, he needs the rest to be honest, he has looked tired as of late.. we are gonna be fine , i have said it all year …

    In Bob we trust !

    Number “8” is both a psychological and a physical WALL to each and every NHL team!!!

    Komi, have a good break, but come back soon.

    P.S. Is Sheldon Souray ** still playing in NHL? :)

  23. #24 Rubberman says:

    Though you’d want to protect a player, does Kovy see it that way?

    Gone are the days of outcries for the trading of Kovalev. Good.

    I watched Alex in Pittsburgh, and I said it all along, all he needs is the right motivation and he’s among the most dangerous offensive threats in the league… consistently.

    The Habs should complete the sweep of Boston on Saturday but the Senators still concern me. A win against them all but secures second place while a loss could ultimately knock the Habs down two or three spots. Needless to say, two huge games coming up.

    As to the notion that the Habs ‘can’t win at home’, I disagree. They’re five games over .500 at home, which isn’t exactly a losing record. I think they simply need to adopt their road game mentality at the Bell Centre, stop trying to ‘wow’ the fans so much and they’ll have more success.

    Kovlev has become a team player, something he has not been last year or before in montreal, as a team player he understands the coaches decides, I think Carbo did the right thing. You cannot loose one of your best defencement and your #1 offensive threat and be very successful.

  26. #27 Senet 1 says:

    Those of you who think the Blues were such a bad team, well they just about beat Ottawa too they got the breaks against us and did not get then against Ottawa, many times that is the difference between winning and loosing.

    Hey Rubberman, her is a quote from Carbo. I would suggest that KOVY understands.

    If he (Kovalev) doesn’t have any votes for MVP, I will be really upset,” Canadiens coach Guy Carbonneau said. “We are at the top of the conference and he is a big part of it.”

    I have always enjoyed a team that skates fast, hits hard and fights when it is necessary to support their team. Fighting has always been part of the game and in my opinion should remain part of the game, however, we need people who fight when it does not put the game the team at a disadvantage.

    A lot of hard games coming up. Boston isn’t going to lay down and play dead at the Bell Center. Their in 8th place right now and they want to win .. Big time. The pressure is on them to keep a playoff spot, not the Habs. All the Habs got to do is play well and keep the pressure on. This is a must win game for Boston, which means they are going to play hard all game and not just 1, 2 or 3 periods. All past wins against Boston mean nothing, as this is “new” game. The Canadiens need to shoot more against most teams and stop trying to setup that perfect play goal. When you shoot the puck hard at the net, it just might go. Oh and they (Habs) got to stay out of the box.

    Hey guys, does anyone have any info about Kovy’s new instructional video? I think it comes out on April 1…..but does anyone know where you can get your hands on one? Remembering I’m in Newfoundland.

    huge huge loss! will prevent habs from getting out of the 1st round! he was our only hitter! we were soft with him in the lineup… now forget it!
    teams will take liberties like crazy. And if they put in Breezecrap, you’ve just opened the floodgates for goals in our net!

  32. #33 hablifer says:
    March 22, 2008 at 12:12 pm

    I was talking about the loss of Komisarek. He’s out for a minimum of 3 weeks! killer!

  33. #34 hablifer says:
    March 22, 2008 at 12:23 pm

    Komisarek out 3 weeks, and Latendresse out for tonight’s game. the bruins will hit us at will tonight, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the bruins finally win tonight! they must be licking their chops knowing our only 2 big bodies aren’t playing. Remember, we don’t play well at home, at lost our last home game to the mighty Blues! and the Sens on Monday? Neil is back in their lineup, so look out!

  34. #35 Joseph says:
    March 22, 2008 at 1:51 pm

    I wouldn’t push the panic button just yet. The Habs should still win this game, and Komisarek will hopefully be back in time for the games that truly matter anyway.

    I agree, these injuries will show us if our team can dig down deep and play a strong defensive game. Don’t be surprised in Brisebois gets a goal or two. His problem is he does not play with intensity and therefore makes mental errors. Hopefully he will have his A game in place along with a number of other players who will have to step up to the plate. These injuries could be the best thing that could happened to the team as long as they are back for the playoffs.
