Canadiens vs. Islanders Top Six Minutes: Light that Lamp

New, comments

It looked like the Habs had run into some rough water, but in the end, it was smooth sailing.

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.

This is the first game I get to watch my son Noah, and he's playing in what could have been my home barn if the Islanders had moved a year or two earlier.

First Period

  • Oh lord. Just my luck to tune in and have Poulin on colour.
  • That's not a great start to the game. Come on Habs.
  • GALLY. THAT'S MORE LIKE IT. Chucky and Gally playing on the same line is life.
  • Oh man, Lord Byron almost had one there. If I wasn't awake before, I SURE AM NOW.
  • ...I thought the Islanders were a playoff team. This does not look like a playoff team.
  • Ah. No they aren't any more. No wonder.
  • Look. I need a Mango Juus goal pronto.
  • Thank you Patch. Thank you Charlie.
  • Damn it, Habs. What were ALL of you doing?
  • Shots were 14-5 for the Isles? Oh dear.

Second Period

  • Drou, why you do this?
  • Who broke Mete.
  • CHUCKYYYY
  • Uhg. Habs, why do you do this.
  • Aww Brendan Davidson, how nice to see you.
  • The fact that Juulsen plays in all situations makes me so happy.
  • Oh my, Chucky. That was pretty.
  • That was a not entirely awful power play. Wasn't entirely good either though...
  • Drouin was SO close...
  • Uuuuuhhhhhgggggggg.
  • Wow Julien is NOT amused.

Third Period

  • Well, this is less than ideal. First Mete, now Pacioretty are gone. Greeeaaaat.
  • Oh wow. Paul Byron with all the patience in the world to score that one.
  • MY SON SCORED HIS FIRST GOAL, AND I SAW IT.
  • What a shot.
  • AHHH WHAT A GOAL.
  • Aw damn it, goaltender interference. I dunno about that...
  • A HATTY FOR CHUCKYYYYYYY
  • Gally pouncing on that puck for Chucky was fantastic. That might be the prettiest empty net goal I've ever seen.
  • Juulsen scores his first goal, Chucky has a hat trick, except for Mete and Patch getting hurt, this was a really terrific game.
  • THERE ARE OLES IN BROOKLYN.
  • HABS WIN 6-3
