It was a sleepy affair in Detroit

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.

Pregame
  • It’s Martin Luther King day, one thing we should all think about today.
  • It’s an Original Six match up in the Joe, it can’t be a bad one... right?
  • It’s also my girlfriend’s first Canadiens game; please don’t disappoint!
  • That probably means I jinxed it....

First Period

  • Game hasn’t even started before Nathan Beaulieu is sent to the box.
  • Weber breaks the stick of an opponent with his shot, he probably shanked it, yet it looked to be about 85mph...
  • This will probably be a PowerKill™️... and yes it was.
  • Price being Price is never going to get old...
  • This period has been so bad that my girlfriend is now asleep on the sofa...

Second Period

  • De la Rose to the box...
  • *checks youtube video on paint drying*
  • ... and Vanek plays a bit of tennis... and knows he shouldn’t hit the net.
  • Pacioretty to Galchenyuk but no success for the Canadiens.
  • The Bar stops Beaulieu, his next shot then breaks Coreau's mask.
  • A better period form Montreal but nothing to show for the effort.
  • 1-0 Detroit... Vanek (isn’t it typical).

Third Period

  • I really don’t know what to say... this game puts me to zzzzzz....
  • Icing time... Not sure that’s how you try and get a goal to tie the game.
  • Max goes off for a tripping/hooking, two minutes. Looked like embellishment to me.
  • Redmond turns into a machine gun; unfortunately about as accurate... Still 1-0 after a monster shift by Radulov.
  • Another power play for Red Wings.
  • Still 1-0 though.
  • Good save from Coreau, last chance for Montreal?
  • I wonder if Montreal can actually get some sustained pressure and pull Price if needed.
  • Empty Net Montreal, and...... that’s it, we have a loss.
  • On the bright side, there’s still plenty of time to do something fun today.
