New, comments

The Habs shorthanded woes led them to a loss in the Steel City

NHL: Montreal Canadiens at Pittsburgh Penguins Charles LeClaire-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.

Look. All I want is a good night from Mango Juus, a Gally goal, and an un-embarrassing game.

Dear Sir Singing the National Anthem, PICK A RHYTHM AND STICK WITH IT.

First Period

  • Ooh, that was a pretty stellar opening shift.
  • You guys, Sid is ridiculous. I mean, you're all aware already, but those replays from previous games are gross.
  • Ooh snazzy save there, Nemo.
  • NEMO! NOAH! AHHHH!!!
  • JEFFFFF. I'LL TAKE PETRY GOALS TOO. Oh that was pretty too
  • Uhg. Really, boys?
  • Bad PK is bad. Bad PK is very, very bad.
  • Dear lord, Habs. Why are you like this.
  • Well, that PK was slightly less awful.
  • I don't even, how even, what even. Why do the Hockey Gods hate us?
  • I can't wait for this season to be over. I also can't wait to be able to cheer for the Penguins in the playoffs.
  • Oooh that was almost super pretty from Byron and Gallagher.
  • DO. NOT. TOUCH. JUUS.
  • Now that's a nice goal.

Second Period

  • Oh Carrsy, that was not ideal.
  • That was a really, really good penalty kill!
  • Nice glove save by...ALZNER?
  • The sweet music of the post!
  • Nice possession by the Habs, nice play by Galchenyuk to put the puck into the slot from behind the net!

Third Period

  • OH. MY. NEMO.
  • Glad someone is giving Petry his due.
  • They don't like this call, I don't like the idea of another penalty kill.
  • NOOOO LEHK. UHG. That was going to be SO GOOD.
  • I cannot believe that went in. Wait. Yes I can. uhhhhhhggggggg.
  • sobbing
  • Someone give Lehk a hug
  • Someone give me a hug.
  • I hate everything.
  • If the Pens score one more goal, my prediction will be correct. I called 5-2...sorry Habs...
  • PAULIE ALMOST.
  • I DIDN'T REALLY WANT TO BE RIGHT, GUYS.
  • The amount of near misses so far is very frustrating.
  • Well that wasn't fun.
  • Habs lose 5-2.
  • I don't like being right.
