Tyler Dellow's musing on parity is somewhat related to the hilarious gap between Montreal's goal differential and their place in the standings.

"p.k. always uses his keister to lay the big hit. Eventually that will take its toll on his spine, and he'll get injured." -posted on habseyesontheprize.com Subban: "Keister? I actually think I'm less likely to get injured that way because I'm using the strongest part of my body rather than my shoulder. Guys are so big and fast nowadays that you see more dislocated shoulders or sprained AC joints. When I'm using my hip and my keister, it's probably putting me at less risk of that happening."

P.K. Subban responding to a comment Kevin made last summer Chris pointed this out in a game thread recently, but I somehow missed it until now. We love you Pernell-Karl at EOTP, don't worry too much about "Dr. Van Steendelaar" :)

"We didn’t even play a bad game. That’s the most frustrating thing about this year. If I could explain it, we wouldn’t be where we are right now," added the veteran forward. "We were in the game, we were in control, we were playing well, but it seems like there’s always something that happens. I don’t want to blame luck, because I know luck is something you make yourself."

Mathieu Darche, trying to figure out the 2011-12 season. Every once in a while, in post-game, a player breaks a bit from the stock athlete quote and says something that really sums things up. It's been a surreal, frustrating year.

There is a difference between ‘hypocrisy’ and ‘changing your mind’ or ‘having regrets’. Typically, we allow that people can stop doing things when they begin to feel those things are harmful to them, and suggest in turn that perhaps others should not do those things, because they might also find them harmful. According to your logic, Don Cherry, anyone who ever held up a few liquor stores would be morally obligated to continue holding up liquor stores as long as he could, and furthermore to encourage others to hold up liquor stores as a means of survival, and if that person ever renounced liquor-store-robbery, they would be a turncoat and a hypocrite.

E at A Theory of Ice, speaking of Don Cherry's disgusting first Coach's Corner segment of 2011-12. This response was to Cherry's assertion that former fighters like Jim Thomson, Chris Nilan, and Georges Laraque were 'turncoats' for having second thoughts on fighting's role in the game. While the 2011-12 season unfortunately brings yet another season of the Don on Hockey Night in Canada, it fortunately is bringing the most eloquent Habs blogger on the planet back on board. We've missed you, E.

When Michael Cammalleri scored his second goal of the game to tie it 2-2 in the second period of the Montreal Canadiens' 4-3 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday night, it was followed by a television timeout. Bell Centre public address announcer Michel Lacroix announced that Cammalleri scored his 11th of the post-season and the sellout crowd of 21,273 erupted into an ovation that is at least comparable to other memorable ones this building has seen in recent years - Saku Koivu's dramatic return from cancer being the most vivid of them. Lacroix, seeing how the crowd's reaction was building, remained silent. He didn't announce that Andrei Kostitsyn and Roman Hamrlik drew assists on the play. He didn't say another word. He simply waited in silence, allowing the ovation to build and build until it was on overflow mode by the time the commercial break had ended and the legions of fans watching at home were given the opportunity to witness this special scene. During the second intermission, Lacroix was walking up to the press lounge to grab something to drink and he was asked if that little pause was planned. "No," Lacroix said. "But it was worth it."

"The ultimate test was when he was pulled; he did not start Game 4 against Washington. Even me, to be honest with you, I'd be rattled. I don't know if I could have bounced back for Game 5." - Patrick Roy on OTR, on Jaroslav Halak

Scott Gomez on the Canadiens' goaltending after the Capitals Alexander Ovechkin thought Jaroslav Halak was shaking in Game Two: "Jaro got us here and [Carey] Price got us here," Gomez said. "He's the one who's been answering the bell and he's the reason we're standing here talking to you guys right now. He's a professional; he's been in huge games for his country." Someone asked if he'd offer some words of encouragement before Monday's Game 3 and Gomez said he didn't think it would help, as he really has no idea what goalies do anyway. "I don't know anything about goaltending, I don't know if anyone else does," he said. "So, I don't know if I can go up and talk to him. I guess in knee hockey I was pretty good at goaltending. "I think that's why they have a goaltending coach. Especially goaltenders, they're different all around. They're weirdoes anyway, so I don't think I can make any sense to him anyway. You'd have to have some set of nuts to go up to the goaltender and tell him what you think at this level, that he should be doing [something] different, especially in the playoffs." ESPN's Scott Burnside "Goalies all the talk in Montreal"
