Yes, it’s pre-season, but this could be a pretty fun year.

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.


  • Preseason! We’re one step closer folks!
  • It’s been about five months since we’ve done a TSM. How does this go again?
  • Oh, yeah...GO HABS!

1st period:

  • We have a mixture of players on the ice tonight fighting for a spot. Call me crazy, but I’m pretty confident Price is going to crack the roster again this year.
  • Lehkonen lights the lamp! Let’s see more of that during regular season Lehky.
  • Make that 2-0 thanks to Thompson. That’s right fellas, have fun with it! Wait, Byron’s not playing tonight is he?
  • No, but Domi is. It’s preseason Domi. Enjoy being the first player to head to the sin bin.
  • Will Butcher snipes one over Price’s shoulder to get the Devils on the board.
  • Hudon heads to the net with the puck Oh dear, Charles.

2nd period:

  • Looks like all that footage review Drouin did this summer might actually pay off.
  • We’re heading to a power play. *It’s a new season. It’s a new season... *
  • “Carey, Carey” chants in the preseason. Enjoyable.
  • One shot on goal during the power play and it didn’t go in. They might just have this power play thing figured out!
  • It’s halfway through the second so Primeau is taking over for Price. No pressure.
  • WHAT A SAVE!! I’d say no pressure.
  • We weren’t the only ones impressed by Primeau’s save

3rd period:

  • Now Cayden, don’t get too cocky. If you’re coming out to play the puck, you’re also responsible for stopping the puck from going in the net.
  • Hudon with some sweet moves as he plays pinball and takes out two Devils in the process.
  • Another great save as Primeau proves that he’s much better in the net than behind it.
  • Seriously? Five penalties during the first game of the preseason? Against the Devils?
  • Time to test the power play instead of the penalty kill for a change.
  • Can anybody explain why Domi is always so amped up during preseason?
  • Jake Evans doesn’t give up and takes the lead with a shorthanded goal with just over two minutes left.
  • And just to make sure, Nick Cousins seals the deal with an empty-netter to make it 4-2.
  • This season just may be pretty fun.
