Canadiens @ Coyotes Top Six Minutes: Stranger Things

Three strange goals help earn the Habs a big win in the desert!

NHL: Montreal Canadiens at Arizona Coyotes Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports


  • Oh dear god do I hate 10pm starts now that I have a 9-5 job
  • Anyways, I’ll be inhaling coffee and doing my best to be entertaining in this!
  • The Rocket toppled the best team in the AHL earlier tonight, hopefully the Habs have some similar magic up their sleeves tonight.

First Period

  • Okay puck is down and Gallagher scores!
  • That is one heck of a way to kick off a milestone game for Brendan Gallagher.
  • Jonathan Drouin doing good things again, early power play which actually doesn’t fill me with dread for once!
  • This game is being played with a haste spell cast on it(I’ve been spending my free time playing Final Fantasy IX, sue me)
  • That call is S-A-W-F-T
  • They...Killed a penalty??
  • There’s also some baseball game on and not going to lie, it’s a struggle watching both folks.
  • Joel Armia, bro shoot the puck!
  • 20 minutes down, at least two more coffees to go!

Second Period

  • That is the strangest sequence leading to a goal I have ever seen.
  • Hey Mike, I know they killed one penalty earlier but let’s not push our luck please?
  • Two kills in a row, I should buy a lotto ticket tomorrow morning.
  • Nothing to do with the game, but did an usher eject a row of children right on the glass?
  • Great defensive work by Ben Chiarot one on one there.
  • Jason Demers takes down Jeff Petry and he’s just gotta be thinking “daggummit” if the Habs score on the power play here.
  • Is Chiarot to Paul Byron the strangest two-on-one in recent memory?
  • THE NATIONALS DID THE THING, wait what do you mean this is a hockey website?

Third Period

  • What gives, the Habs didn’t score in the opening minute this period.
  • That’ll do though!
  • The former Coyote Nick Cousins makes it 3-0!
  • Wait, Phil Kessel can pass the puck too?
  • Can we fast forward the rest of this game, I just put fresh sheets on the bed and it looks real comfy.
  • Mike Johnson saying nice things about Cole Caufield makes me very very happy.
  • So, are Drouin and Armia going to play rock,paper, scissors to see whose goal that actually is?
  • I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many weird goals scored in one game before, but I’m not going to complain at this point.
  • Vegas tomorrow, but I’ll still take the points tonight because I like wins, wins are fun.
