Canadiens vs. Red Wings Top Six Minutes: One for the record books

Carey Price is legen...wait for it...dary!

NHL: Detroit Red Wings at Montreal Canadiens Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports


  • Can this be the game, for that thing, you know the thing, the thing I won’t say out loud because last time I did the Habs lost 8-2.
  • Mike Johnson on the call, which is always a good thing.
  • I can feel a Jordan Weal goal tonight, don’t ask me why, but I can feel it.
  • A classy tribute for Ted Lindsay, may he rest easy.

First Period

  • The TSN key to victory for the Red Wings was “Pride” that’s rough buddy.
  • Good lord Andreas Athanasiou is fast, like Paul Byron fast.
  • Someone is going to take Luke Witkowski’s number, he’s a menace right now.
  • Swede on Finn penalty, will this rivalry ever end!?
  • Well that power play was beyond uninspiring to put it nicely.
  • What the heck, Jonathan Bernier can stop pucks all of a sudden?
  • That call is softer than a Corgi’s arse, what a mess of a period capped up with a wack penalty call.

Second Period

  • Well at least the Red Wings power play is bad too right?
  • I wish I had more to say folks, but that requires teams to do quite literally anything out there, this looks like a 9am pick up game at the local rink right now.
  • That is not what I meant Jordie Benn...
  • Oh well hello there Carey Price!
  • Well, at least Shea Weber still has the ability to make an entire arena hold it’s breath when he shoots.
  • A goal? No like really a goal???
  • Ooooo Weal comes Weal-ly close with a shot off the post now too!
  • Brett Kulak blasts home some breathing room on that laser of goal, see I knew he was the right guy to have in Claude!
  • Max Domi in another scrum? Well I never expected that at all!

Third Period

  • Alright Habs, 20 minutes to that thing, the thing that’s super important, do not less us down.
  • I’m going to need the Bell Centre to never play Kid Rock again please.
  • Oh my god the hands on Athanasiou! Respect man, respect.
  • Can Justin Abdelkader leave Brendan Gallagher alone please, we need him for goal scoring purpose thanks.
  • Too nervous to write words, pretend I’m saying something witty here.
