Canadiens vs Canucks Top Six Minutes: Desharnais plays the hero role

See, that's why Desharnais is out there in overtime!

Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports

For our new readers and members, the Top Six Minutes is a continuation of the discussion in the game thread. We try to keep it light and entertaining. Full recaps are up the morning after every game.

Back to Top Six Minutes, good thing I am not working tomorrow, only writing articles for HabsEOTP, send a spare thought for my editors.

  • British Columbia - One of my favourite wines is from that area, I can recommend Mayers Family Vineyard if anyone is interested.
  • The Sedins - I remember them from a Swedish final where they seemed to hold onto the puck the whole period, every period. They still lost that final...
  • Then Olympics 2006 - Öhlund got injured in the quarterfinal and no-one was sure he'd get a medal, so the Sedins said, "he'll get one of ours we have them at our parents anyway so we can share".
  • Montreal at home to Vancouver will always be Jean Beliveau tribute night in my mind.
First Period:
  • New guy playing - that's a sure goal for Canucks.
  • 1-0 after like no time at all. This starts well... Don't worry, I've only done TSM one time and we won, so...
  • Penalty Kill time! - Some shaky moves there, but no goals.
  • That is actually a good power play, even when Subban breaks Dutch Gretzky's stick with a slap shot.
  • Blood on the ice, broken nose on a Sedin. Not intentionally but it's a double minor no doubt.
  • 2-0, with ONE second into the second minor. Condon a bit out of position again.
Second Period:
  • Good play form the second line, and then Galchenyuk takes a penalty ten meters behind the play.
  • And a goal, that takes way to long to get correct. It's a goal should take two seconds to confirm. What's taking so long?
  • 7 goals in 24 shots, I think it's safe to say the Condon is broken.
  • Ellerinho! I am going full Brazil here. Samba moves in the kitchen, because that's how I roll!
  • Patches!!!! We got us a one goal game!
  • I'll be honest and say I want Lehkonen in Plekanec's place on that power play.
  • Dutch Gretzky in Gretzky's old office, makes sense in some alternate universe.
  • Blender time!
Third Period:
  • Power Play to start the third period.
  • Montreal survives a boxplay after a bad penalty taken by Semin.
  • This third period is a big - meh....!
  • GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL! the Flyfisherman, we have a tied game!!!
  • We have a 3-3 draw, after being 3-0 down. Never give up!
  • The pacific commentary isn't to happy, still talking about the Pacioretty goal.
  • Was that four Swedes for Canucks to start the OT?
  • Gallagher is an honorary Russian, playing with Markov and Galchenyuk.
  • Goal by the Defensive Duty - David Desharnais gets the OT winner!
