Steve Begin Breaks Foot

  • Steve Begin fractured his foot in Sunday’s game against Columbus and will be out of the lineup yet again.

    It feels like Begin hasn’t even been part of this team this year due to all the games he’s missed.

    An important gritty player the Habs could have used down the stretch.

    what does it feel like to have a 3 -0 lead? didn’t we have this same lead against Columbus? Hope we don’t stop playing, like we did on Sunday.
    I’m happy for Higgins. It’s been a long drought for him. But guys, this is Washington, we’re playing, and if you think we’ve been playing bad, take a look at their record. horrific! Keep skating guys. don’t let up!

  2. Nice to see the first line and the kid line working ,that’s two out of four,it better than nothing .If we can just blow them rite out of the water,big time,it would bring back the team spirit. No Kovalev,Abby, Huet , Rivet and Niinimaa,NO PROBLEMS !!

  3. See what happens when Gainey is too busy looking for injured players? Watch out, when he gets back, he’s gonna thrust more Ninny and Kovalev types down our throat, and he’ll trade the kid line to give us crap! Anyone wanna bet that Gainey is gonna trade the kid line for a washed up underachiever? Like we need another old folgy with matching walker to match Johnson, another Mr. Nice Guy Left Wing walking hernia….enjoy this break from Gainey….

  4. Montreal is not knocking em down, just like I said earlier, no matter how good Halak is, if Montreal doesn’t stop them on the boards and sides, they are gonna tic tac toe it to the net!

    wow… talk about deja-vu…. except this time its one period sooner that all this is happening. Hopefully the Habs can stop em from getting another goal. Cuz we all know the habs have lost their confidence and won’t score another goal…

  6. I don’t mind it so much cause the young guy’s are only going to get better,there’s a little hope now and thus more enjoyable to watch.

  7. What a contrast between the kid line and the old folgy line of Johnson and the other senior citizen’s line Koivu…big contrast. If Gainey and Carbo can’t see what young talent can do to bring some life into the organization, then I say its too bad, what a waste. We can’t be having the habs brought down by veterans. Not that all veterans are this bad. I mean Gainey could do better finding other senior citizens who would fit nicely with rookies. But Johnson, Koivu and etc just don’t measure up no more. Even Murray, but you can see him try to match the spirit, but the legs just are not there.

    um Joshtm… you do know that all 3 goals were scored by the koivu line or are you watching a different game?

    OMG Just beautiful!!!


  11. Hey the kid line knocked them outa sync though. If we didn’t have the rookies the caps would find their groove and then Koivu or Markov would get a hissy fit penalty. I guess you just are not seeing it are you. By the way it was also the Koivu line that got scored against too, can’t be having it both ways….

    As soon as Ryder scores, Montreal steps back on its heels yet again. Almost like where were they two minutes ago?

    But hey, the other teams skate around, and knock down our veterans and score on them.

    Just when u least expect it Ryder decides to show us what he is capable of 😀

    Excuse me Josh but for the second goal it was the kid line on it. And that one was way worst then the first goal we let in. And I’m not even sure that Koivu was on the ice for that one neither. Just watch out what you say man. I’m 100% sure that it was the lapierre line for the 2nd goal.

    As for the third goal, well, it was bonky bonk. So far the goals went against pretty much every line so don’t blame the old timers only.

  14. Ryder has got his groove back now! Another shorty, what’s that now,16 a new record perhaps. I got a feeling that this season is starting to get back on track now. Don’t give up Habfans. KEEP THE FAITH BABY!!!! GO HABS GO !!!

    Smiler2729 that was HILARIOUS MAN!! P#14

  15. I’m sorry but I’ll be wearing me shade’s for the third and gots the bag with the eye hole’s ready for ruff sea’s and It’s going to be so ruff out there you can hardly drink your beer , bouy !

    nail biter this is

  19. good ol SOURAY …..

  20. Keep up the good chatter everyone, here on the west coast, we are fed a steady diet of shit every Sat night on HNIC—meaning every sat ( almost exclusively ) it’s the Maple Leafs, quite obviously the faggot who decides the hnic sat games is nothing but a maple leaf ass kisser, who thinks that To is the center of the universe, we seldom ever get to see the Habs..unless of course they are playing T.O.

    I enjoy your comments, keep up the good work, however Kovalev, Bonk and Samsonov are three totally useless scumbag pylons who need to be run out of town hitched to the bumper of any vehicle leaving town.

    nice way for Halak to start his career….. two strait wins

  24. WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Time to get cautiously optomistic!

    Habs win 5-3. Ryder and Higgins look like they’re coming around!

    Oh, wait damnit, Higgins left with another injury. Well that just seems to be the way things go for this team.

    The french media are already putting out columns and entire novels comparing Halak to Ken Dryden and Patrick Roy. It’s two games.

    Kovalev not playing, the Habs possibly turning it around. Coinsidence? I think not.

    Kovalev and Rivet should still be traded. Hey, if San Jose can’t get Souray maybe they’ll take rivet for Matt Carle, or more likely Josh Georges. And Washinton would take Kovalev to play with Semin or Ovechkin and apparently Datsyuk is almost a sure thing to go there in the summer.

    But like I said, let’s get cautiously optomistic. Whooooooooooooooooooooo bring on those chumps in Nashville.

    Oh, wait these standings are from 6 years ago. Let’s just bring up this years,

    yeah, en hen, oh crap. And they just picked up who? Oh crap. They’re the best team in the west? When did that happen. Bloody Hell.

  25. Well ,you can forget about any trades now guy’s , Garth ‘s made sure of that…lol. We got two real team to play now, buckle up!!!

    Does anyone know anything about Higgins injury? I heard it’s an upper body injury(shoulder). That’s all we need now. If he’s out for any appreciable time, we’re toast! It seems to be 1 injury after another. Before long, the whole Hamilton team will be playing. Do we have bad luck or what?

  36. #38 Habz4EveR says:
    February 21, 2007 at 1:10 am

    They said he was going to get x-rays to check it out so I don’t think we will know before tomorrow at the earliest… And it has to happen when he starts scoring again…. Such a bummer!

  37. R habs,man we be winning with those BULLDOGS dude, hell ,bring the whole team, they be 4 real.

    Our next 3 games are going to be tough ones. In Nashville Thursday, Sat afternoon in Long Island, and Monday against leafs. Well, we haven’t won an afternoon games this season, and Nashville is the best team in the NHL, and we can’t beat the leafs, so I don’t know. I do think Gainey will wait until we’ve played 3 more games(Tuesday), before he makes any moves. If we lose all 3, he’s selling. If we take 2 out of 3, we’re buying. That’s just the way it is. And please, no more injuries! Next, Youppi will slip and fall. Do the bulldogs have a mascot?

  39. Nashville ,well we be losing that one, but I guarantee throw in SOME OF THE BIGGER TOUGHER BULLDOGS IN THE MIX AND IT WILL MESS UP THE PILE OF LAFF’S. They’re expecting the same old small Habs ,so don’t give them that,ROCK THIER WORLD PLAY OFF STYLE….YEAH…WOOOOOWOOO…

    HIggins: scores twice
    Ryder: scores twice
    Joshtm: Still hasn’t scored with a chick

    The vets really led the way tonight. Laps line played well but they made many rookie mistakes in their own end.

    Best defensive game of the season . Only 18 shots against. TOo bad Semin went around Souray for the goal becaus eotherwise Souray was a monster in the defensive end tonight. Same with Komi and Boullion.

    Gainey to meet with the media tomorrow. Rumour has it, that its to announce Joshtm’s real identity (Rejean Houle)

    February 21, 2007 at 3:06 am

    Hey josh:

    Sorry I got to take the cheap shots at you but you make it far to easy. Constantly contradicting yourself and everytime you make a bold statement it is proven wrong the next game. I like your passion although sometimes HATE can be a horrible thing to pride yourself on.

  46. #48 Habz4EveR says:
    February 21, 2007 at 3:06 am

    Seriously Komi is da bomb!

  47. #49 Habz4EveR says:
