Welcome to our weekly Hockey Tweets of the Week feature on Puck Drunk Love. We will aim to give you the most entertaining tweets each week from hockey players, writers and fans.
Week four starts … and ends … in Montreal. Fitting, because the hockey world sometimes revolves around the city of Montreal as they have the most storied hockey franchise on the planet. (Sorry, Avangard Omsk fans.) At the beginning of the week, they demolished the Buffalo Sabres 7-2. Buffalo fans were livid.
@justjohnnye Chad Johnson couldn't stop a blind one legged drunk circus monkey from scoring.

Surely they meant the former Bengals receiver, right?

I guess not.
Carey Price is so good, he made a clone of himself to play the #Sabres tonight

Multiplicity 2 … now in theatres.

The picture/gif game was strong on twitter this week. Consider:

That Torts didn’t smash the phone is a victory. Maybe he really has changed.

Admit it: You could listen to that loop for an hour straight … unironically.

The Roberto Luongo Tweet Of The Week
Our friend Strombone1 is betraying us. How are we supposed to have a Roberto Luongo tweet of the week when he doesn’t tweet for two weeks? Go back to July?
Well yes, we’re going to go back to July. Because this tweet asking for a birthday wish from the world’s greatest goalie was responded to in the most perfect way possible:
It sure would be nice to get a Happy Birthday from the world's greatest goalie! @strombone1
— Njerí Sims (@NJ_Artist14) July 7, 2015
— Strombone (@strombone1) July 7, 2015
Good one, Strombone.
And it’s the perfect segue back to Montreal, as Carey Price was certainly not the world’s greatest goalie over his last two games, giving up 5 to Vancouver which forced the first Habs loss of the season after starting 9-0. And then, inexplicably, blowing a 3-0 to Edmonton on Thursday … Edmonton!!! … to lose their second in a row 4-3. Maybe Price has been overusing that clone.
#Habs lose in regulation after holding a 3-goal lead for the first time since Feb. 3,2008

Luckily for Price, he escaped the wrath of #HabsTwitter. Not everyone was so fortunate:

Lot of Canadiens fans in the house tonight for this disaster so… pic.twitter.com/eG7BUg710h

Canadiens fans do know their hockey.

Normally the Canadiens don't seriously get me angry. Enough is enough though, this is absolute madness. It will never change
— Ben Fraser (@BenSamuelFraser) October 30, 2015
Angry. Nine and two. Deep breaths.
The Montreal Canadiens played like the Anaheim Ducks tonight. How do you blow a 3 goal lead in the first period?!? #NHL
— Cory Allan (@CoryAllan3) October 30, 2015
At least they didn’t look like the Anaheim Ducks …
Not even close.
Canadiens fans have bigger meltdowns than Arsenal fans
— Domenic Gullaci (@FalseGiorno) October 30, 2015
That can’t be true …
Habs are 9-2 trade price trade subban fire everyone
— Queen Niks (@_wingoals) October 30, 2015
I stand corrected.
Well, that’s it for this week. Halloween is on Saturday, so remember to keep your children safe. And here’s a costume tip:
Want to go out as Connor McDavid this Halloween? It's easy. Here's how: 1. Go to a party where everyone is much older. 2. Dominate it.
