Thrashers vs Canadiens...for the final time of the season

For the final home game of the year for the Thrashers, Montreal came to town. It seems like the Habs were just here, oh yeah...THEY WERE. Just a little over a week ago, the Thrashers beat the Habs in 3-4 in OT, I was hoping to send the large number of Habs fans home crying again. I will have to admit, all of the Habs fans in attendance were fun and well behaved. Habs fans are usually on the top of my shit list because of their elitist attitude that they are the only place in the universe where hockey should be and somewhere like Atlanta certainly shouldn't have it.




I brought a sign for Kovy. Things aren't looking good according to rumors. Some guy in a Thrashers jersey came by and said "He's never going to sign a contract." I acted like I didn't hear him, asshole. One of my facebook friends in Montreal said that my sign was on tv! I wish I could have seen it.





And of course I had my "God Jul Moose" sign. The lights were going and the star was blinking, it was gorgeous!!!





Moose drives all the ladies crazy. He has a lot of female fans. I can hold my own with most, but this new competition is out of hand. How can I compete with this??? How adorable is she? She sometimes has a sign that says "Moose is my friend." If I had that sign, they'd get security. She was at practice with a sign that said "Moose is cooler than ice cream." Who does that but a 6 year old? Her mom is the one who has all of the cool signs for every player that she holds up when they score, fight, etc. I was supposed to send her some pictures, but lost her email. If you know this moosetacular little girl or her family, let me know. My buddy Kerry took this picture of the Mooselette and our friend Randy.





Habs fans waiting for their beloved Les Habitants.



Warm ups!


Moose checking my sign out. Moose always smiles at my signs. Yes Moose, I know it's the one from last year, but it blinks. It has a battery pack strapped to back for God's sake.





Slater on net duty.





Pavs waiting for his turn to warm up.





Hainsey cleaning pucks out of the net, guess he didn't think Slater did a good enough job.





Ilya zooming down the ice.





Ilya loves his gum. I caught him mid bubble.





He's checking out the sign I made him. Several guys read it.





By request, some Anssi Salmela.





A few seconds after this picture, they were playing "Birthday" from 50 Cent and Colby totally busted me doing the head bob and dancing. Embarrassing.





Kaner!





I'm so excited Boris is playing well after he came back. It's not easy being a Bobo fan sometimes. His skating is improved, his positioning is better and he's not a penalty magnet.





Schubert has been playing well, too. I like a defensive pairing of him and Boris.





Marty coming in for a shot on the Moose.





Some more Anssi.





You better warm up well, Halak. You are about to have to play your balls off. He's checking my sign out.



First period!

Halak making a save.





Woo Hoo, Georges Laraque! I love Laraque. I would really like to meet him one day. Such a bruiser on the ice, such a civic minded, kid loving mush off of the ice.





I love ya Georges, but don't score on my Moose!





Coming out of the face off.





The boys discussing some things.





Hainsey taking in to the Canadiens' zone.





Halak making another great save.





Antro waiting for the puck and putting his big ass in front of Halak.





He got the puck and tried to put it in, but it went airborn!





Hal Gill is a hooker! I wish! He did take a hooking call though and the Thrashers go on the powerplay.





A good chance on net, but Halak turns it away.





Penalty is over and Hal is set free.





As Michelle says, the boys are having a little "meet and greet."





Action in front of Moose.





I love when Moose gets feisty and pushes around the guys that are in his crease.





Some Habs fans over in the One-Oh-Douche a/k/a the tea and crumpets sections. Our 1/2 empty club section is not used to passion like that.


At the end of the first period, the Thrashers had put 18 shots on Halak and we were up 1-0. The Thrashers rarely out shoot our opponents, but we led 18-3 in SOG. We outshot the Habs last time as well.


Second period!


Welcome to this end of the ice Halak!





Opening face off.





Bien fait, Habs fans! I love it when the opposing team fans put on the kiss cam play along with it. Buffalo and Philly trash usually flip off the camera. Boston fans did an obscene gesture as well. You are at a hockey game, have some fun!





Some MORE action in front of Halak.





Action getting out of control.





Army has his game face on. Get some, Army!!!





Almost! Open your eyes, Army!





AGH! Another great save by Halak.





Kane has been a chippy little bastard in the last few games.

Although the Thrashers outshot the Habs 18-10, the scoreboard was all Habs in the second period and Atlanta was down 2-1. One of the goals was a PPG scored by Andre Kostitsyn. Our penalty kill has been one of the best in the entire league all season, but the wheels are slowly falling off of it. We need to get that going again, boys!


Third Period!


Halak has a wardrobe malfunction. Hell maybe his skates caught on fire from all those saves he made.





Equipment guys having a look at Halak's pads.





Moose looking serious. I was looking pretty serious after he let in a goal on 3 shots. Sorry Moose!





A scary moment came when Little went down on the ice and couldn't get up for a while. I believe he took a puck to the foot. He came back out later.





Thrash spraying a good natured Habs fan with silly string.





Us on another power play. Antropov scored!





We were in the Chick Fil A lucky section, woo hoo! Marissa sat and spent some quality time with the cow, we didn't even get a hook up! He left and walked down the stairs tossing out freebies. Nothing for his friends!! You can see my husband's jersey on the jumbo tron by the black arrow.

Nik Antropov decided to make the 3rd period his bitch and scored 2 goals! My friend Kerry has a theory that if he sees Antropov smile during warm ups, he scores. This has worked 3 games in a row! Hockey fans aren't like other fans!
The Thrashers are up 3-2 and there is like 3 minutes left in the game. Bogosian takes a hooking penalty. Nice time to be a hooker, Zack. With 1:45 left in the game, in another demonstration of our penalty kill going to hell in a hand basket, Bergeron puts a wrister in and breaks the heart of all the Thrashers fans. End of the 3rd period and the game is tied.


Over Time!


I should have known this wouldn't end well when they put Antro in the faceoff.





Half way through the OT period, Bergeron decides that the punch in the stomach wasn't enough and goes on to kick us in the nuts winning the game with another wrist shot.
Vomit.


Well, hey, these guys were happy. I'm usually pretty rough on Habs fans, but all the ones I encountered were very nice, even if they probably think I don't "deserve" a hockey team. I really don't care what the guy I circled thinks, because he is super cute.

Halak put on a freaking show. He faced 50 shots and made 47 saves. Him not being one of the 3 stars of the game is complete bullshit. The three stars were Bergeron, Plekanec and Antropov. He should have at least had the 2nd star. He had like a .940 save percentage for crying out loud.

Strangely enough, this is the final time we see the Habs in Blueland this season. Au revoir, Habs.

Where do all those FROGS come from?

My friend Kerry said that the last time the Habs were in town they set by a large group of Habs fans who worked with Circ De Soliel. We have the show Cavalia in town, so that could be one source.

I saw you waiting in line to get into the arena. I noticed the Moose sign and said, "Oh, look, there's another Moose fan." It wasn't until we walked past that I thought, "Wait, that wasn't just any Moose fan..." So...a belated hello to you!

Sunshine36616 December 28, 2009 at 7:57 AM  

Beth I saw you guys up there with the Mooooose signs AND the Slater sign. I kept trying to get a good picture of it, but never did. Can't wait until Casino Night!
Kerry, my husband is such a grump :p
