Pacioretty leads the Canadiens to victory with a four point night

NHL: Montreal Canadiens at Arizona Coyotes Matt Kartozian-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

  • The Coyotes are having offensive struggles and Carey Price is undefeated against the Coyotes? We’re definitely going to lose 5-0.
  • Sorry. I’ll try to be less pessimistic.
  • WELL. It’s not hard to stop being pessimistic when Pacioretty scores less than a minute in!! 200 goals for Cap!
  • Oh my goodness. Where is the Coyotes’ defence...
  • I like this version of the Canadiens. Can we keep them please?
  • THE GENERAL. What. A. Shot.
  • The Habs look a lot better than they have in a while.

Second Period

  • Some really nice zone time for the Habs here. Not sure if the Habs are playing well, or the Coyotes are playing badly, but either way.
  • Have the Habs been out of the offensive zone at all in the first five minutes? (Yes. Yes they have, but it sure doesn’t feel that way)
  • 12:43 to play, and Arizona doesn’t have a shot on goal in the period yet!
  • Oh man. Almost Byron on the breakaway. Wow.
  • No matter how harmless it is, anyone going into Price scares me, and always will. THANKS KREIDER.
  • Oh no...Andrew...
  • Oh no...Phillip...
  • Oh no...Habs.
  • Oh dear.
  • *internal screaming*
  • AAAnd just like that, it’s all tied up. This is so Habs.
  • And then a shorty. Oh boy. And the Habs were doing so well...

Third Period

  • Everything is awful.
  • EXCEPT FOR PATCH. 3-3 GAME!!
  • Raaaadduuuuuuuuuuuuu!!!!!
  • Why do the hockey gods hate us. I have no idea what anyone was doing on that play...Mostly Carey. I have no idea what Carey was doin g on that goal.
  • Alexei Emelin is going to save us all.
  • Oh Jeff...you gotta shoot there.

OT

  • Patch wants that hatty. I want Patch to have that hatty.
  • OH PAUL. THE POST TWICE IN ONE GAME. AHHH.
  • I have missed watching Markov play hockey. What a shift from Pacioretty, Markov and Galchenyuk.
  • CHUCKY’S BACK GUYS.
  • Habs win 5-4 in OT thanks to Alex Galchenyuk!!!!
  • Oh boy. That game should never have been that close. But I will take that win.

EOTP Three Stars
