Canadiens vs Senators Top Six Minutes: Yes, That Just Happened

You are not dreaming.

Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports

For our new readers and members, Top Six Minutes is a brief overview of the Habs game, and a continuation of the discussion threads usually happens in the comments. We try to keep it light and entertaining, even when the Habs make it hard. Full recaps/analysis/walks of shame go up the morning after every game.

First Period

  • Um. I got drunk.
  • GI-NETTE! GI-NETTE! GI-NETTE!!!!!!!!!!!
  • There is no hockey rink that has a better atmosphere than the Bell Centre. None. NONE.
  • I don't think Carey Price has ever blinked.
  • The crowd is either yelling "Hammond" or "Trust Fund"
  • The first "HEEEYYYBOOOO" of the playoffs is always special.
  • I called Flynn and Mitchell Flytchell but the addition of Prust is interesting. Prytchel? Flytcthst? Prustyll?
  • Someone turned DSP on.
  • COMMERCIAL! /Goes to pee
  • DSP's jam tasted terrible and he's force feeding it to everyone
  • "hahaha remember how irrelevant that Markov own goal was?!?!"-Me in 2 months during the Habs cup parade
  • Gallagher Benefit of the doubt
  • Gallagher took more bumps this period than most NHLers do in their entire career.
  • Gallagher's entire career is Crossing the Desert, The Unblinking Eye, The Wreck of Hesperus and The Paddling of the Swollen Ass...with Paddles over and over and over again.

Second Period:

  • That intermission went pretty fast for you I bet.
  • Markov may be demoted the Colonel in a bit
  • P.K. Subban played the lowest out of any Habs D man in the first period. He's the best skater on the ice for either team.
  • I miss Max Pacioretty.
  • A lot
  • Someone make me miss him less.
  • PRYTCHELLLL!!!!!!!!!!!
  • I went with Prytchel.
  • I was just thinking "man this line is getting a ton of ice time" I'm cool with that now.
  • Assuming Price is God and Jesus...Tomas Plekanec is definitely also god and jesus.
  • Well this game certainly took an interesting turn.
  • No PK? No Pacioretty? That's one way the Sens can win it.
  • Lars Eller is also God.
  • This game might kill me.
  • I'll be waiting for the make up call until I die.
  • Mitchell scores. Flynn scores. Petry logging PK minutes. DSP is tall. Everything's coming up Bergevin.
  • What a period. I need a drink.

Third Period:

  • The puck is rubber and Price is glue and so on and so forth.
  • Just don't get scored on.
  • Cheap joke: Bobby Ryan can't spell what this game is.
  • I need this period to be completely uneventful.
  • My heart is trying to escape my chest cavity please send help.
  • CAMAN!!!!
  • WOOO!!!!!!
  • On to game two.

Three Stars:

3. Markov has to eat all of it without any beverage. It's the playoffs.

2. It'd be pretty cool I bet.

1. YES.
