Canadiens @ Bruins Top Six Minutes: Priceless milestone against the Bruins

Price passes Patrick Roy in wins as he shuts the door on the Bruins.

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

  • It’s a Saturday night battle against the Bruins. Let’s do this!/

First period

  • We’re five minutes in. Shouldn’t you have scored by now Domi?
  • Well, that was a not-so-great power play. Maybe next practice should focus on passing techniques.
  • A giveaway has Domi making a beeline to the net but can’t get a shot off.
  • Gally goal!! Man, I just love those.
  • Not to be outdone, Domi finds the back of the net one minute later on his knees. It’s a bit late by Domi standards but we’ll take it!
  • His fifth goal and riding a sweet six-game point streak. Galchenyuk who?
  • Price keeps the lead during the penalty kill with some “whoohoo saves” (trademarked)/

Second period

  • A Domi-Gallagher combo almost makes it 3-0.
  • Price with a slick “not tonight boys” save on Moore.
  • Donato snipes it past Price short-side high to cut the lead in half.
  • Coach’s challenge on that one for off-side.
  • It worked! Our coach’s challenge actually worked! Not up in here Bruins.
  • So, the passing part has been worked out for the power play, now next time how about you try shooting?
  • Donato trips in the blue line, Nordstrom gets off a slapshot and Price whips out a beauty of a windmill save with one second left. /

Third Period

  • No scoring in the second period. I’d be perfectly fine with no scoring in the third too. Let’s just call it a game, shall we?
  • Rask gets a tripping call. Someone should explain the rules to him for when he ventures from his net. Or not.
  • We’re mixing it up with a little four-on-four as Drouin and Marchand go sit in the corner for interference and roughing (guess who’s in for roughing?)
  • Price is looking very Price-like tonight (read: hot)
  • Benn with an empty-netter to make it 3-0!
  • SHUTOUT!! Price passes Roy in Montreal goalie wins as he shut the door on the Bruins on their home turf./

Highlight of the night

EOTP 3 Stars

Comments were much too negative for a shutout win over the Bruins, so there are no 3 Stars.
