Okay like what the hell is this guy? - Jana Chytilova/Freestyle Photo

Your Top Six Minutes from tonight's Stanley Cup Playoffs Round 1 game between the Montreal Canadiens and the Ottawa Senators.


• [erase everything written during the first 59 minutes of that game]
• Fuck.
• Fuck.
• Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck.
• Fuck.
• Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck.
• This wasn't the way it was supposed to go, but this was the way it went.
• Fuck.
• In the playoffs, it doesn't matter who deserved to win a game. It only matters who does.
• If you have two somewhat evenly-matched teams, luck is always going to be your MVP, I think.
• It took the Ottawa Senators 8 minutes and 17 seconds to register a shot on goal.
• (In that time, the Canadiens had 7, if you're curious.)
• Anyway, I guess that answered one question.
• And David Desharnais somewhat answered another question.
• Ugh. Fuck.
• I have a few more questions.
• Why did the Canadiens sit back on a two-goal lead for half a game?
• Seriously, where is Michael Ryder, have you seen him?
• Why was that ruled an icing?
• Or that ruled an icing?
• What good is Marc Bergevin yelling at Bill McCreary going to do when the game has already been stolen and can't be given back?
• What the hell happened to Carey Price?
• What the hell happened to Brandon Prust?
• What the hell is happening to this team?
• Does it hurt any less to have always known that this isn't our year and our time is still to come?
• No, right?
• Do you have any hope left?
• How bad is it when you're just glad it wasn't Fucking Daniel Alfredsson scoring the OT winner?
• Or even worse, Erik Karlsson?
• Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck.
• Fuck.
