Canadiens @ Ducks Top Six Minutes: Not Feeling the California Love

Jacques Plante keeps a hand on the wins record for another day.

NHL: Montreal Canadiens at Anaheim Ducks Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

Pre-Game

  • Scott is currently sicker than Max Domi’s hands, so pray for my well-being as I try to fight off this head cold.
  • No Tatar? No Kulak? Hopefully no problem?
  • It’s time for history, Carey Price can pass Jacques Plante for win by a Montreal goalie tonight, and it’s hard to believe that kid with bleached blond hair became this stud in net.
  • Also I hope everyone is up to date on vaccines since Corey Perry is around tonight.

First period

  • Did I miss something last night, why is Phillip Danault in a cage?
  • Also I learned Craig Button is from Rochester, and I guess I have to be nicer to him now.
  • Hello Anaheim PD? I’d like to report a drunk and disorderly, it’s the Canadiens power play.
  • Oh, cool cool cool cool cool.
  • That’s the most noticeable Jonathan Drouin has been all week, maybe he can try putting the puck in before a whistle next time?
  • Good pushback after the goal as Jeff Petry nearly banks one in off the end boards.
  • Hey, guys can we wake up a bit out there?
  • I don’t know a lot about Nick Ritchie, but if he tries to put his hands on any of the Finnish children I’ll fly to Anaheim and give him a stern talking to.
  • The power play is currently so bad that I can leave the room to get a drink and know I will miss literally nothing.
  • This is going well!
  • LORD BYRON DOTH PROTEST YOUR LEAD ANAHEIM.
  • Oh for the love of God Habs, stay out of the box.

Second period

  • One huge kill down, great work by Nate Thompson and company!
  • Oh for the love of...Get it back fellas.
  • That was certainly a challenge, for something.
  • And now a power play, Anaheim is being the rudest kind of host.
  • That was as abysmal as I expected it to be.
  • OH COME ON AGAIN? Who the hell is Jaycob Megna anyway?
  • HOLY SHIT THEY SCORED...ON THE POWER PLAY?!
  • That is not how you respond to a goal, and the Habs are down two again.
  • Make that three goals.
  • Oh good, another power play.

Third period

  • Is the ice just really bad or did everyone forget how to skate and handle the puck? Feels like players are botching passes all over the place.
  • I will say, Jordan Weal has looked fantastic in this game, always making things happen around the Ducks net.
  • I don’t have a snide remark anymore, I just hope the power play scores.
  • ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  • I don’t blame Brendan Gallagher for being mad, just seems like everything tonight didn’t work at all.
  • Well, that sucked regroup and beat Detroit please, can’t afford to drop points in these games.
