Canadiens vs Oilers Top Six Minutes: Keep Calm, and Carey On

The Price was right in Edmonton, as the Canadiens take advantage of some timely goals.

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.

First Period

  • Edmonton starts their ex-Habs line, and Radulov is back!!
  • Oh man. McCarron and Nurse drop the gloves. Nurse got in a few early, but I’d say Big Mac got the better of that ultimately.
  • The Habs’ power play has gone back to being not terribly impressive...
  • Why is Byron on the power play with Radu and Patch.
  • Oh were doing so well until that.
  • Wow. 10 minutes have been played, and shots are only 3-2 for Edmonton.
  • They look as drowsy as I feel.
  • Hmm. Montreal has the lead in shots now, apparently. What an incredibly uneventful period.
  • Oh Marky, that was not your best moment./

Second Period

  • Oh no, Gally. Not again. Ok he’s fine.
  • Oh. Ew. Do not like. It just HAD to be Lucic, didn’t it. And of course, it just followed a really good shift.
  • Pretty sure Gally is going to try to single-handedly win this game. Him scoring now would be great.
  • Oh Emelin. Why this.
  • At least the Canadiens still remember how to penalty kill. Four shots given up after four minutes short-handed? Not bad at all.
  • There have been at least three big instances tonight where I’ve wondered what on earth Emelin was thinking. Not ideal./

Third Period

  • Well, that was a nice start to the period! What a pretty glove save by Price.
  • The save might have been nice...but what came after was decidedly not. Please get out of your own end, Habs.
  • That was a pretty nice shift by Byron, Danault, and Gallagher!
  • Oh my goodness, Carey.
  • And again. And again. And again.
  • Also, nice to see all of Gallagher’s hard work paying off.
  • AHHHHH CHUCKY. What a bounce. So nice to see Pacioretty-Galchenyuk-Radulov again.
  • None of this would be possible without Carey Price.
  • Byron into the empty net!!!
  • Pacioretty vs empty net, empty net wins every time.
  • OR NOT.
  • 4-1 Habs!/
