The Eagle helped begin the scoring, Gallagher got his first career hat trick, and the Habs rode the updraft to a soaring victory.

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.

WE HAVE MIKE JOHNSON.

First Period

  • How many Carter Hart and Carey Price puns can I slip in this TSM...
  • GALLY GOALS ARE THE BEST GOALS.
  • Boy, they sure didn’t waste any time!
  • Tatarrrr. (No he didn’t do anything, but the way they said his name made him sound like a pirate.)
  • Carey going on adventures. You’re not Bilbo. You’re making me nervous.
  • The more time goes on, the more Jakub Voracek looks like he belongs in Game of Thrones.
  • THEY MAY BE THE FLYERS, BUT THE EAGLE IS FLYING EVEN HIGHER.
  • Lord Byron and the Eagle with speed to burrrrnnnnn.
  • Good boy, Lehk.
  • WHAT DID I SAY ABOUT GALLY GOALS.
  • That was the Tomas Plekanec special.
  • Get Gally the hat trick. Do it.
  • It’s past Hart’s bed time, so his night is over.
  • ISTG, that better not have been all the goals we’re gonna see from the Canadiens this game...
  • Ok guys, please just get through the rest of this period without doing anything stupid.
  • Oh geez. Puck to the head for Robert Hagg.
  • Haha, bless Mike Johnson.
  • GET. GALLY. THE. HATTY.

Second Period

  • Thank Price.
  • THERE IT IS. THERE’S THE HATTY. THAT’S MY BOY.
  • TATAARRRRRRR
  • Well. This is fun.
  • Oh Carey. That might just be mean.
  • Glad Hagg seems to be alright.
  • Well. That was entertaining.

Third Period

  • Get Gallagher more goals. All of the goals. So many goals.
  • Or Kotka. I’d be ok with that.
  • Or Mete.
  • Or Lehkonen...
  • Or literally anyone...
  • This period feels like it’s been going forever...
  • Please don’t do anything stupid in the remaining...12:30.
  • ...There’s so much time left. How has it only been eight minutes.
  • BOO.
  • When I said literally anyone, I meant literally anyone in red, not you Michael Raffl.
  • Screaming
  • OK GUYS, YOU CAN STOP. WE’RE AWAKE, I SWEAR.
  • There’s still nine minutes left. How.
  • Falls asleep again.
  • I have to say, it’s been really kind of the Flyers not to take a single penalty.
  • Shots are 29-37 for Montreal right now.
  • 11s, you can’t do that.
  • HABS WIN 5-1!
