Canadiens vs. Hurricanes Top Six Minutes: Welcome Back, Weber

Weber has a solid return, but the offence falls flat once again

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.


  • The elusive Shea Weber returns, It will be his first game wearing his shiny new “C”./

First Period

  • 18:07 in to the first and we get to see that iconic Shea slapper. The ground shakes from the velocity,  the players shake from the fear.
  • The first Carolina goal has me nervous.
  • Gallagher is a total menace and I am so happy that he is our menace rather than some other team’s.
  • McElhinney is having a much better time in net than I was anticipating.
  • The announcers have just decided to refer to Kotkaniemi as “the young man”
  • Update they have decided Kotkaniemi can be “the good young man” That is some fast player development./

Second period

  • Carey Price keeps Rask from getting a second goal.
  • Gallagher is in his “office”, working hard, doing his best.
  • Carey Price flattened Foegele.  The Bell centre loves aggressive Carey Price. /
  • Oh man, that deflected off of Mete...
  • When I consider how much someone would have to pay me to stand in front of a Weber slapshot, NHL salaries suddenly look a lot more reasonable.
  • That was a quality chance for Jordie Benn, and I don’t often say that./

Third period

  • Drouin was halfway through a Celly before realizing the puck was not in the net. That is rough.
  • Black Friday must have come a few days late for McElhinney, because today appears to be when he is doing all the saving.
  • DANAULT!!! The Habs are still in this! Weber gets the assist, he is currently averaging a point per game. Shhh sample size is irrelevant...
  • Montreal looks invigorated
  • Numerous chances for Montreal but none come to fruition/
