Canadiens @ Red Wings Top Six Minutes: Total Domination

Tatar scored the first one against his former team, then Montreal put their foot down on the gas in the second period and never looked back.

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

  • Ok Habs, I have a terrible head cold, and am feeling awful. I win would definitely help me feel better.
  • Mete and Petry together? I like that.
  • On the other hand, Benn and Weber against Larkin makes me nervous...
  • Not a bad start. If they could just hit the net...
  • Poor Lehk.
  • Oh hi Rosie.
  • Please go play in the other zone Habs. this isn't good...
  • THANK YOU TUNA. Oh my. That was nice. Against his former team too.
  • And even better than that, no power play.
  • Is it supper petty of me to hope that Kotkaniemi way outplays Zadina in this game?
  • Huh. That was a pretty good shift.
  • I did not realize Shaw had that many points this year.
  • Oh geez, Habs...come on.
  • I WAS going to say this would be a good time for a Byron shorty...but that'd be a bit difficult seeing as he's in the box...
  • Please get the puck out of the zone...
  • Oh no Lehk. Wait... Detroit pulled their goalie, and there's not six players.
  • That's also not a high-stick lol.

Second Period

  • Come on Montreal. Please get your act together.
  • ANDREW. That was a funny one!
  • Oh. Oh Lehk. My sweet summer child. One of these days those goals will come back.
  • CAREY.
  • Geez. Two GoT references in a row. I didn't even do that on purpose.
  • How did no one put that one past Howard.
  • ...Geeez Max. That almost ended terribly.
  • Domi makes an almost terrible mistake on one end, and then goes to the other end and scores a beauty.
  • Joel may have never been so open in his life. (Detroit, were you even trying?) Kotka, you beauty. That net was SO wide open.
  • Geez. Montreal why.
  • Oh Andrew.

Third Period

  • Jonathan Bernier in nets now.
  • Dear sweet lord. Max Domi is having a very good night.
  • The Red Wings defense? Not so much.
  • Clearly the solution to the power play problem is to literally never have one.
  • Please do not break Shea Weber.
  • Haha I'm not the only one with Game of Thrones on the mind.
  • Maybe we could get Lehk a goal this game...
  • Or....mayyyybe not.
  • Get Domi a hatty.
  • Get Shaw a hatty.
  • Get Lehk and/or Mete a goal...
  • Not a tall order or anything...
  • ...that came out of left field.
  • Lehk. Oh Lehk.
  • Max Domi has five points. Just saying. And Drouin has four. That line was ridiculous.
  • Carey Price doing Carey Price things.
  • Montreal wins 8-1!!!
