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.
- No reverse retro jersey, this bodes well.
- Good saves early from Price, first on Stastny then on Dubois.
- Power play Montreal, lets see if those special teams works better...
- ... at least it was better.
- Byron gets a chance infront of the net, but no goal.
- Drouin almost scores on a breakaway.
- Ladies and Gentlemen - Josh Anderson!
- Have the Ghosts finally moved into the Centre Bell? Because someone else than Kotkaniemi should get an assist on that goal.
- If the second period isn’t better than the first I will switch over to the cricket where New Zealand is chasing 142 vs Australia.
- Armia and Suzuki blocks shots like their life depended on it.
- I would like this team to play less around their net, please?
- Is there any strategy behind this teams play, except being a swarm of bees?
- Toffoli gets the puck in the slot, and Montreal is 2-0 up.
- After some pinball wizzardy Gallagher gets a goal, and the good guys are 3-0 up!
- Gallager gets his second, in two shifts!
- Goalie change, but not for Montreal, Hellebuyck has been chased off the ice.
- Drouin’s pass is as good as Armia’s shot, and it’s 5-0. Imagine if there was a crowd in the Centre Bell right now.
- I wonder if we will hear the “Olé” chant from the crowd-control-playback person in the third period?
- Speaking of which...
- New Zealand won with seven wickets, for those interested.
- Not sure what happened, but Byron gets a backhand goal from out of nowhere.
- Montreal’s est defender, Jeff Petry, gets in on the scoring.
- On to the penalty kill.
- Other teams makes the power play look so easy...
- ... and Montreal goes back on the penalty kill, on a similar play that wasn’t called for Montreal earlier.
- Great game, on to the next one.
