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.

Pre-game

  • Is the MSG the worlds most famous arena in the world, as according to its slogan? I’d think it be Camp Nou, Old Trafford or another arena...
  • Some changes in both teams should make this interesting, which coach has the best Fingerspitzengefühl?
  • Lets just say they don’t have a Ginnete Reno in New Yourk singing the anthems.

First Period

  • Decent start, and then Petry gets called for hooking... #NotThatGreat
  • PING from Oskar Lindberg
  • The King of New York looks to be in good shape tonight again, unfortunately...
  • l’Arttise plays well, just need that goal to get going for real.
  • It seems the refs has a blindspot when it comes to Gallagher, they see nothing at all.
  • Another power play for the Rangers.
  • Its just Price being Price... but I still get amazed.

Second Period

  • I am almost more interested on whats happening in Columbus at the moment, that game seems ridiculous in so many ways.
  • BIG CHANCE FOR THE GENERAL - but the King makes the save...
  • Illegal substitution but not to many men? Not sure I understand the difference.
  • Danault with a good chance.
  • Mitchell with another chance, still Lundqvist is making his best Price impression.
  • Byron is every where at the same time; that’s how fast he is.
  • Jordie Benn with a huge poke check!
  • PowerKill™️
  • NHLPA meeting in Lundqvists crease.
  • LEHKONEN, L’ARTTISTE, THE SMILING ASSASSIN!!!!!
  • Radulov the defenceman.

Third Period

  • Markov gets cut, Zuccarello to the box for four minutes.
  • We went back to the PowerKill™️
  • Galchenyuk with an incredible set up to Weber for 2-0!
  • L’Arttiste off for interference - 11 minutes to go.
  • Galchenuyk has been a monster tonight.
  • Lehkonen described Radulov as a monster out there, and after this season we all kow what he saw.
  • ... and RADULOVE makes it three nothing! On a Mr Magic deke, you young ones better check that history lesson out.
  • Rangers on the board, Skjei from the blue line.
  • And a big, Big, BIG save from Price!
  • Mitchell visit the New York Rangers bench, and with a smile as he leaves.
  • 3-1 Habs win makes it a 2-1 lead in the series!
