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.

You guys...I don’t know what I want. I want them to win...but I also don’t want them to win...but I really want Carey Price to get his cup...

First Period

  • Suzuki is on the first line against Crosby and it makes me so proud.
  • Lol Hornqvist is mad.
  • Dear sweet lord. I was SURE the Penguins were gonna score.
  • Pittsburgh is all over the Habs. This isn’t gonna end well.
  • Please spend more time in the offensive zone, Habs. Or should I say, productive time in the offensive zone.
  • I’m torn about this power play.
  • Well...that wasn’t great.
  • Hornqvist is gonna fight Chiarot at some point.
  • Well. The best thing we can say about that period is they got out of it tied at zero.
  • And Carey Price is awake.

Second Period

  • Well, that was good, and then sloppy. And then good again.
  • HOW did they not capitalize on that. sigh
  • That was a nightmare. Good on Petry for making Guentzel think too long.
  • Some nice stick work from the Habs there.
  • Oh Joel. Why.
  • Good boy, Lehky.
  • SUUUUUZ!! I’m so proud. What a great PK shift.
  • That was actually a good penalty kill all the way around.
  • GET. OFF. CAREY.
  • Chaos.
  • Everything is happening. Can we decline the power play? Ok this is weird, but I have a good feeling about this power play...
  • I guess, by Habs definition, the fact that the PP wasn’t a disaster is a good thing?
  • I’m both underwhelmed by Pittsburgh, and also still super scared of Pittsburgh.

Third Period

  • Petry wouldn’t have missed from there.
  • GALLY UHGGG... GIVE ME A GALLY GOAL.
  • Hornqvist is gonna fight someone. It’s gonna happen.
  • And by someone I absolutely mean Chiarot.
  • So, that’s absolutely a penalty. But...you’re gonna call that, and not the others?
  • IF THAT FIRST ONE WAS A PENALTY, HOW WAS THAT NOT A PENALTY.
  • (Although, not like Montreal wants a power play anyway...)
  • The problem with playing Pittsburgh is that you’re never safe until the game is OVER.
  • They can always pull a goal or three out of nowhere when you least expect it.
  • PRINCE ARTTURIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII. This is definitely an acceptable substitute for a Gally goal.
  • Can you imagine. The Penguins didn’t want to face the Habs in the qualifier because of Carey Price, and they get eliminated in a 1-0 game.
  • EEEYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY the Captain with the ENG.
  • I’m literally just laughing in disbelief here.
  • I am so shocked. What even is this.
  • Turns out the Penguins were 100% right to be afraid of Carey Price.
