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.

Pre-Game Thoughts

  • As always, Montreal does it right with a pre-game nod to Shea Weber for playing 1000 games in the NHL
  • Reverse retro night and the boys are looking SHARP

First Period

  • Nice start to the game with Tatar getting a few looks
  • Still weird to see Chucky in that uniform
  • Ten minutes into the first and the Habs haven’t scored yet. I’m worried.
  • Top line going to work and Gallagher is able to bang one home - Habs up 1-0
  • Carey weirdly seems to be having some trouble playing the puck tonight
  • Josh Anderson: good at hockey
  • Ottawa scores.
  • Ottawa scores again, this time on the PP
  • Sens up 2-1 after the first

Second Period

  • Tommy Tatar Tots having himself a game
  • Sens score. Burn these jerseys and never wear them again.
  • Murray actually looking solid tonight for the first time this season which absolutely figures
  • Romanov laying the body on Chabot and a scuffle ensues, Habs to the PP
  • Anderson takes a hit and is slow to get to the bench. Holding my breath
  • Perry takes a puck to the wrist and heads to the room
  • Sens up 3-1 after two, Let’s just forget that period ever happened

Third Period

  • Anderson not on the bench to start the third
  • Drouin heads down the tunnel now. FML. What is happening!?
  • Sloppy, sloppy play
  • Perry tries to strike something up by taking on Gudbranson. Perry a little worse for wear and heads to the room to get cleaned up
  • Benny goes for four minutes for a high stick
  • Tatar gets called for boarding and that’s it for the night
  • Final score: 3-2 Sens
