Canadiens vs. Hurricanes Top Six Minutes: Habs’ struggles continue

New, comments

A rough game for Montreal as they start a tour of the southeast.

NHL: Montreal Canadiens at Carolina Hurricanes James Guillory-USA TODAY Sports
  • The line-up remains a mystery as seasonal sickness results in game time roster decisions.
  • I told Echo, the Golden Retriever i’m pet sitting, that she could co-write this Top Six Minutes.

First period:

  • The Hurricanes look well rested, while the Canadiens look a bit rusty.
  • Carolina gets an early goal. Echo thinks the start has been “Ruff” for Montreal.
  • Luckily Carey was one Price that did not drop boxing day weekend.
  • A Short handed chance for Danault!
  • Galchenyuk awoke from his post turkey snooze and is looking dangerous.

Second period:

  • Montreal is looking livelier.
  • Galchenyuk with a game tying beauty of a goal.
  • Morrow and Deslauriers making sure their turnovers don’t lead to any goals. Very responsible of them.
  • Carey sees EVERYTHING. He should be banned from all magic shows indefinitely.
  • I’m sure Pacioretty had goals on his holiday wish list, but without Amazon Prime, they won’t arrive for 4-6 weeks.

Third period:

  • The call up kids are all looking pretty decent.
  • This is the calm, cool, and collected Carey we all love.
  • Galchenyuk goes to the box for the second time.
  • Aho gets one past Price, that probably could have been prevented by one of the poorly positioned Habs skaters.
  • Hurricanes with an empty netter, taking the 3-1 win.
