Canadiens @ Senators Top Six Minutes: Well they won ...

Habs finish an awful game with more goals, and that’s all that matters.

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.


  • England vs Scotland (rugby), Leksand vs Frölunda (with Mattias Norlinder) and an early Canadiens game, I don’t know how to handle this... Mrs Zeb is handling it with bubbly and a good movie in the other room.
  • To no-ones surprise Jake Allen gets the start.

First Period

  • After about two seconds the plexiglas falls down in the Tire Fire Centre.
  • Gallagher draws a penalty on Brännström (the trade bait).
  • Glove by Petry on the blue line, who strikes the puck perfectly for the opening goal.
  • Petry has been ubiquitous through out the early season for Montreal. Norris contender for sure.
  • Romanov to the box, for a weak call...
  • Important stick from Toffoli on that box play.
  • Bad guys score...
  • Another power play, but no goal.


  • SCOTLAND WINS at Twickenham for the first time since 1983!

Second period

  • Good pressure from Montreal in the first five minutes of the middle stanza.
  • Gallagher to the box.
  • Tkachuk is a pest.
  • Somehow Montreal manages to kill off that penalty.
  • Another penalty for the Canadiens.
  • That’s not nice by Kulak. Even if Stützle is low, no need for a high stick/cross check move.
  • Suzuki to Toffoli, but the later heels it.
  • Tkachuk is a pest.
  • The last 13 minutes of the were just bad.

Third Period

  • Josh Anderson with his eight goal of the season, after a double rebound.
  • Petry, goes down, I’m holding my breath.... he is up again, all clear.
  • Bad, big hit on Evans...
  • ... who goes to the dressing room.
  • Of course it was a no call, and won’t be a suspension either.
  • Who saved that? Because it didn’t look like it was Jake Allen.
  • Chiarot to the box with about four minutes to go.
  • Holding on someone in red, after Suzuki and company has punished the Ottawa defence on the power kill.
  • Evans back on the ice, at least that’s good, but it also means that DOPS will have no need to check the hit.
  • Evans with a big save with 13 seconds left.
  • 2-1 Good guys, but what a bad game.
  • Ottawa will be this year’s Detroit
