Canadiens vs. Ducks Top Six Minutes: Ducks in a Row
The Canadiens had all their ducks in a row against Anaheim.
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.
I kind of just always assume the Habs are gonna lose against California teams. Yes I know Anaheim is bad, yet all I can think of is:
- Not gonna lie, I like getting to see the white jerseys at home.
- Well, that was a zing-y start!
- The Finns are flying.
- OH GOD A TWO-ON-ONE ALREADY??? Thank you Jeff. Thank you Carey.
- GALLY GOALS ARE THE BEST GOALS. Seriously, that sniiiiiiiiiiiiiipe though!
- So it's one of those games is it??
- THE EAGLE IS SOARING.
- So of course the Habs then let the Ducks get some ridiculous chances.
- Fortunately, Carey Price is on point.
- GAAAALLLLYYYY GOAAAALLLLL!!!! (This is not a recording!!!)
- What even is this period.
- Something stupid is gonna happen. Something stupid is gonna happen and the Habs are gonna lose.
- Come on, get Gally a first period hat trick.
- The crowd chanting Carey's name is never gonna get old.
- Can we just reject this power play? (Come on boys, prove me wrong.)
- Poor Chad Johnson.
- That was a hilarious first period.
- Here's the real question though...can they keep this up in the following two?/
- Ok, Habs, here's your mission. Get Victor Mete a goal, and get Gally the hat trick.
- Jeff, don't run your goalie, Getzlaf, don't run Jeff. Kay? Kay.
- Oooh that was a nice move from Hudon.
- Do we really have to go on the power play?
- Oh geez. This is exactly how we're gonna lose the game; by falling asleep in the second period.
- ...Damn it Habs, really????? I didn't want to be right.
- Dear Montreal, the Ducks may be bad, but they are still an NHL team with players who can score if you let them sit in the offensive zone!!!
- Brett...Brett why...
- At least they killed that off.
- Daaaang Domi! That was a very nice shift./
- HOW DID THAT NOT GO IN.
- WAIT. IT DID.
- JoDru is on fire tonight. All the points are belong to him.
- The Finns creating absolute mayhem is so much fun.
- Domi getting all the looks.
- Well, at least that wasn't a bad power play.
- Awww man, that was close.
- Thank you Carey.
- Well. That was a very fun game.
- HABS WIN 4-1!!/
