Canadiens vs. Flames Top Six Minutes: Habs handed second straight loss in OT defeat

New, comments

Montreal couldn’t hang on to a third-period lead, and eventually fell in the extra frame.

NHL: Calgary Flames at Montreal Canadiens Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports

First period

  • Tomas Plekanec is in a mood. This could be promising.
  • It’s nice when Galchenyuk decides to remind us how good he is with the puck.
  • Price had it, then he did not.
  • We didn’t allow a second one immediately after, which is both nice and uncharacteristic.
  • Carr Drives it in! Can we keep him?
  • Pacioretty made a Giordano pancake.
  • Other Habs however, appear to prefer turnovers to pancakes.

Second period

  • Sorry Garnet, but Anne is the only Hathaway that is deserving of an Oscar.
  • Pacioretty is currently not okay, and thus I am also not okay.
  • That was a Rittich-uolous save on Jarabek.
  • I Danault about you, but I love Assists from the Captain.
  • Why are there still players who don’t wear visors? Why?

Third period

  • The question is not “where is Gallagher”, the question is “where isn’t Gallagher”.
  • Nothing is more comforting than hearing the Carey chants.
  • Jordie Benn has become a pleasant surprise. His beard may be full of secrets.
  • I think it’s past Gaudreau’s bedtime. It’s a school night.
  • Carey Price is 6’3”, a 5 metre roll of bubble wrap is only $5 on Amazon…
  • Five on three for the flames is not ideal right now.
  • The post is simultaneously the most reassuring and terrifying sound.
  • They survived five on three.
  • Flames goalie is feeling the burn of that Weber shot.

OT

  • Did no one tell the Habs or Flames that this is finals week?
  • Flames came in hot and the Habs get burned.

Highlight of the night

EOTP 3 Stars

3. Unfortunately the extinguisher ran out in OT

2. Now if only he can stick around.

1. We’ve overcome one potential obstacle to a permanent spot for Carr.
