New, comments

Another night, another win for your Montreal Canadiens

NHL: Tampa Bay Lightning at Montreal Canadiens Jean-Yves Ahern-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.

First Period

  • Pacioretty is on the 3rd line and Weber is with Emelin. Ladies and gentlemen welcome to the Upside Down, would you care for an Eggo waffle?
  • Lines may change, but the Habs power play struggles are forever...
  • Pacioretty to Shaw is...weird
  • 12:36 left in the 1st and that was the first icing call. I see improvements
  • BISHOP serves up a Shaw pancake
  • Lehkonen and Radulov do some pretty things
  • I’m sure Galchenyuk did not INTEND to elbow Bishop in the face
  • Galchenyuk bad at faceoffs? There’s a novel statement.

Second Period

  • Emelin and Weber are not an entirely terrible pairing...
  • Beau is not who i would want to pick a fight with...
  • five minutes of 4 on 4, sure lets mix it up, should be fun.
  • I could do with him and Radulov spending more quality on ice time together
  • Lightning Strikes when least expected-quiet down meteorologists

Third Period

  • PK is scary, good thing we have Carey
  • Gallagher ends up in a headlock because of course
  • PACIO-is-always-RETTY
  • Gallagher, Galchenyuk and Radulov is the best thing to come out of Therriens blender in while
  • Premature Ole’s make me nervous
  • Mitchell has made me less nervous
  • 3-1. Habs win.
  • Carey Price will never lose again. It is known.

Jeff Petry, Andrei Markov, and Alex Galchenyuk combine for a ridiculous goal:
