    So if we win can we stop the doomsday talk? Or is it still more fun to hate our team?

    It's mostly fun to get drunk and spew nonsense during games, to be honest.

    Sweet, I worked last night so I was glad there was no game, looking forward to seeing us get back in the win column.

    I wish I actually weren't as emotionally invested in this team as I am. Would be nice when, if we lost, I can just say "meh" and move on in life. Instead I get upset and mope around the rest of the night.

    Ohh... just realized it was Nov. 11th! No class then tomorrow I guess.

    EDIT: **** UOttawa... classes don't seem to be cancelled.

    EDIT2: "In Canada, Remembrance Day is a federal statutory holiday (except in NL, NWT, ON and QC)" Soooo.. it's Ontario that's the problem here. Makes me wish I was back home in BC right about tomorrow.

    Ontario... I'm used to it being a stat though, since I lived in BC my whole life up until a couple months ago.

    Are we going to see the usual habs fall apart against the Islanders show?

    This is about as close to a 'must win' game as you'll get this early in the season. We really have to win this game.

    Vanek, Neilsen, and Martinek with 4 goals for the Isles.

    Pacioretty x2 for the Habs.

    Loss.

    cmon kids. Veterans day in U.S.A. is called Memorial Day and is last week of May.
    As far as habs losing a few games in a row they have been doing it forever.
    At least Im old and can remember Beliveau,Richard,Lafleur etc.
    Tonight check the score periodically.If favorable watch a bit. Go Habs Go!!!

    Totally incorrect. Two distinct federal holidays with different purposes. Memorial Day commemorates those who died in service. Veterans Day commemorates those who are veterans, which include those who are still among the living.

    Parros has all of the traits I dispise in a fighter:

    * nice guy
    * care and attention to personal branding
    * normal
    * ineffective punches
    * nice guy

    He's George Laraque, without the capacity to hurt anyone.
