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.

First Period

  • Well, this could be mortif...GALLY GOALLLL!!! 25 goals this year!
  • Aww and Petry gets an assist!!
  • Brendan Gallagher is a treasure. Or, if you prefer Lord of the Rings quotes, he's a light in dark places when all other lights go out...Who knew Galadriel was relevant to ice hockey.
  • Uhhhhg not the cannon.
  • Oh god, unassisted and everything.
  • Oh dear, Jeff. Jeff no, why this.
  • This is going to be a loooonggg game if we're giving that kind of power play goal up to the worst PP in the league...
  • Oh Desi. Oh Habs. Why must you be so agonizingly heartbreaking?
  • Internal screaming
  • Gotta say, I'm so here for Gally and Chucky being on the same line.
  • Bless Gally and his first goal of the game self.

Second Period

  • How. Did. That. Not. Go. In. Hockey gods why do you hate us.
  • HABS COULD YOU NOT.
  • Don't mind me over here screaming into the void.
  • One day the Habs will score another goal.
  • Meanwhile, OVI.
  • Oh great. Seth Jones is so going to get a hatty.
  • Dear Bob, please stop.
  • Also please stop icing the puck. You're all better than this.
  • Oh Mango, so close. (In case you live under a rock, and still don't know why Nikita Scherbak is Mango, this is why.)
  • CHARLIE.
  • The Habs look totally hopeless in the face of CBJ's cycle. This is abysmal.
  • OH MY GOODNESS DROU. That was lovely. What a pass from Paulie.
  • Oh Carrsy.

Third Period

  • Ok Habs, it's National Napping Day, I have a new bed, and all I want to do is sleep. Please don’t make this any more painful than it needs to be.
  • Yes. Keep praising my son. (<— In case you didn't know, that's Noah Juulsen)
  • Thank goodness this is almost over...
  • Ah the bounces are cruel tonight.
  • Oh my. No hatty for Jones tonight. Apparently he's hurt? That's no good. When did that even happen?
  • Too much man.
  • Seriously, how have NONE of these scrambles around the net produced a goal. That's just cruel.
  • CHARLIE AGAIN.
  • The Habs are playing their best period of the game, so naturally, CBJ scores again. Fricking cannon.
  • Because the hockey gods hate us.
  • And everything is awful.
  • Not Rosie's best night. Or Jordie's for that matter.
  • Someone put me out of my misery, please.
  • At least we get Bob and Foligno hugs? I dunno guys.
  • I'm going to bed.
  • Habs lose 5-2.
