Canadiens @ Flames Top Six Minutes: He's Back

Carey Price is back, and Lady Luck came with him.

NHL: Montreal Canadiens at Calgary Flames Sergei Belski-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

  • Apparently the Flames are undefeated while wearing their retro jerseys. They're wearing them tonight. I'm not concerned, you're concerned.
  • I can never decide if Movember is the best month or the worst month...like, obviously the cause is a good one. I'm just undecided on the facial hair on a lot of these guys.
  • Not gonna lie, these Flames jerseys look really good in action.
  • What a nice rush from Tatar.
  • TUNA TIME.
  • There are a LOT of Habs fans in Calgary.
  • Petry doesn't just have dishes, he has wings on his skates.
  • Oh no...not the power play...
  • Price is awake. Not sure if the rest of the power play is...
  • The bad news is that that power play was lousy and the best look went to Calgary. The good news is that they didn't give up a shorty.
  • Oh man Tatar to Gallagher was almost gorgeous.

Second Period

  • Sean, you're supposed to put the puck in the net, not yourself. (But I'd much rather you put yourself in the net than put the puck in the net...)
  • Xavier was that necessary?
  • TKACHUK WAS THAT NECESSARY?
  • Well. Carey looks good. I don't know about the rest of them right now...
  • I have a bad feeling about this...
  • 6-0 shots for Calgary in the second? Oh dear...
  • Why do the hockey gods hate my sweet prince Artturi.
  • Thank you Price.
  • “Nic Deslauriers in a footrace” <—not a phrase one expects to hear.
  • So um. Carey Price is bailing the team out in this period...
  • This is fine. Everything is fine.
  • Price is just making save after save and there's nothing going on in front of him.
  • Aaaaaaand now Tkachuk scores again. Ew.
  • Everything about this was awful, except for Carey.
  • OH MY GOD WHY.

Third Period

  • Can I turn off the game and go to bed? No? What a shame.
  • Well, this looks better!
  • This looks less better...
  • Screaming
  • This is FINE. Everything is FINE.
  • JODRUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!!!!!!! (Also Juulsen hearteyes)
  • CAREY.
  • You can easily hear the “Go Habs Go” chant. So good.
  • Well, that was a very pretty two-on-one. Shaw and Domi nearly made it 3-2.
  • OH MY GOD PRINCE ARTTURI. I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT WENT IN.
  • Geez. If ANYONE deserved that kind of a bounce, it was Lehk.
  • Apparently all the good luck that Lehk was being denied was being saved up for that.
  • Thank you Carey, once again.
  • Shots are 44-22. This is Fine. Everything is fine.
  • The empty net might be a better goalie than Mike Smith.
  • One minute left.
  • I'm gonna die.
  • Keep praising Noah Juulsen. It is oxygen for me, which I need. Because I'm not gonna be able to breathe for the rest of this game.
  • Shots are 45-22...
  • Carey Price. Nuf said.
  • Oh Lehk. He was INCHES from the ENG.
  • OH MY GOD THE HABS WON. THEY ACTUALLY WON.
  • It's like Price's return to rarefied heights caused the heavens to smile on the Habs.
  • I'm very glad I didn't turn the game off and go to bed. Also Flames? No longer undefeated in the retro jerseys.
  • 3-2 Montreal.
