New, comments

I hate everything.

NHL: Montreal Canadiens at Washington Capitals Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

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

  • MIKE JOHNSON!! We win.
  • MAYBE DON’T LET EVGENY KUZNETSOV INTO THE ZONE ALL BY HIMSELF.
  • Lars. Sob
  • I’m so glad Byron’s ok.
  • Oooh very nice look from Andrew Shaw there.
  • This great start so means that the Washington Capitals are gonna score first.
  • The Habs are being aggressive to very good effect this period.
  • Oh that was almost so pretty from Petry.
  • Of course. Of course it was Lars. Why do you have to break my heart like this??
  • I hate being right.
  • Oh my word...is that...a POWER PLAY GOAL???
  • IT WAS. O CAPTAIN MY CAPTAIN.
  • That passing was mint.

Second Period

  • Oh dear sweet lord that was bad.
  • How was that onside??
  • HOW DID HE MISS THAT?????????
  • This is not good.
  • Thank you Carey. This is awful. Everything is awful.
  • Oh my god why.
  • CAREY.
  • Montreal is both doing so well and so badly.
  • Carey Price is saving their butts.

Third Period

  • Everything about this game is making me sad.
  • Washington, you don’t NEED this win. Let us have this please.
  • Come on Habs...please score...
  • Of all the games for the hockey gods to point and laugh, this was the worst.
  • Hey NJ, could you please do us a solid and STOP LOSING??????? I don’t want to do another post season of Bitter Bandwagoner Habs Fan’s TSMs. I want to do playoff TSMs, damn it.
  • Thank you Carey.
  • But also, Habs, please don’t leave Backstrom all by himself. Not a good idea. Not a good idea at all.
  • There’s enough time for one goal. Come on boys.
  • Hey, Victor, now would be a VERY good time for that first goal in a season.
  • Ok, so like, there’s still plenty of time for one goal. But like...that time is RAPIDLY RUNNING OUT.
  • SCREAMING
  • Please stop. Please stop this.
  • Oh Jeff. That was almost perfect.
  • Almost.
  • When they said keep an eye out on Cary Price, pretty sure that’s not what they meant.
  • Ok someone in white. FRICKING SCORE.
  • Oh god. They’re gonna score an empty netter and I’m gonna cry.
  • Go away Larry, no one wants you here.*
  • *We all know that’s a lie.
  • I hate everything.
  • This is the longest final 40 seconds ever.
  • I am now officially the world’s biggest Rangers fan ever, and *gag* Senators fan.
  • Habs lose 2-1.
