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.

Pregame:

Mattias Norlinder scored his sixth goal of the season, I am watching that on repeat until this game starts...

Okay, the Blues sweater is quite nice.

1st Period

  • Nice of Gallagher to make sure Price is awake.
  • Kotkaniemi draws a penalty so it’s time to grab something to drink, because watching our power play is not fun.
  • Wow, I must have jinxed the power play. If I only realised that five years ago. What a pretty goal!
  • ... and it’s 1-1 seconds after Montreal grabbed the lead.
  • Big hit by Tatar, who goes off for two minutes.
  • Price, with a big, big save!
  • Oh Lehkonen...
  • Suzuki with a steal, and the chance of the period for the Canadiens!

2nd Period

  • What HAPPENED???! A GALLAGHER GOAL!!!! Jake Allen with a huge mistake, and that’s the weirdest goal Gallagher has ever scored.
  • Now let’s hold on for more than two seconds.
  • Kneeing on the new motorbike... hope them wheels are okay.
  • Cross ice passing, Kotkaniemi to Drouin and a 3-1 lead, and maybe, just maybe a working power play.
  • Price saves another bad play in our own zone.
  • Kotkaniemi has come to play, he probably thinks the blue and yellow is Sweden.
  • Price doesn’t chase windmills, he makes them! Don Quixote would be so mad.
  • The ENGINE with a goal! 4-1.
  • Carey Price, enough said.
  • Mr. Price saves from in close! What a save!
  • That was the second period all Canadiens fans wanted.

3rd Period

  • Another power play to start the third period.
  • Montreal is practicing power plays today, another one coming up...
  • ... probably the worst of the night, still better than last years power plays.
  • Bit of a boring period.
  • Now Allen saves when Drouin has an open (more or less) net.
  • Carey Price with another big save to finish this game off!
  • Garbage goal.... against.
  • ... and one for the good guys, into the open net by the captain.

EOTP 3 Stars

3) A bold strategy

2) How are you just going to just murder a backup goalie like that, Jonathan?

1) I guess we know what The JD Man will be doing next Saturday afternoon
