Canadiens vs Red Wings Top Six Minutes: Gally Goals Galore

Gallagher hits 30, and the Habs do in fact win one they should

NHL: Detroit Red Wings at Montreal Canadiens Jean-Yves Ahern-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

  • WE HAVE MIKE JOHNSON. The hockey gods are kind.
  • “We can beat these guys." <— well now we're guaranteed to lose spectacularly.
  • Like I was saying... headdesk
  • I mean at least Mango Juus looks ok?
  • Habs, you are frustrating. One moment you are fine, the next you’re a cluster f*ck!
  • Oh my, Carey.
  • GAHHHHHHH. Well, lucky us that Athanasiou missed the shot.
  • They have an abysmal power play you say? They're gonna score. Book it.
  • Aww bless Noah.
  • I like being wrong about things like this.
  • PAULIEEEEE. Now that was some nice passing.
  • Well, I guess that could have been a lot worse.
  • The shots look nice (15-9 for MTL)
  • Haha Byron absolutely dodged the question about hitting the 20 goal milestone.

Second Period

  • That celly was so Gally. (Ice is slippery, dear.)
  • Get him 30.
  • Wow. This delayed penalty has been going on forever.
  • That was a really nice pass to Mango.
  • Aww, Juus getting praise from Johnson.
  • Uhhhhhhhggg. Bertuzzi. Oh Mango.
  • That, once again, went better than I expected.

Third Period

  • Lets not break anyone’s jaws, shall we?
  • Aww that was almost nice on the two-on-one.
  • CHUCKYYYY. Of course he scores a goal like Gally's tonight.
  • Do not touch Charles.
  • What is this.
  • What is going on.
  • Listen to Johnson. He is right.
  • Don't mind me screaming as first Drou and then Byron miss the net.
  • Please don't break Juus.
  • Pretty sure that’s not conclusive. That's never gonna be conclusive.
  • Good.
  • Carey looking much more like Carey than he did at the beginning of the game.
  • The lack of Gally hat trick is disappointing, BUT
  • Boy do I like being wrong on things like us losing!
