Top six minutes Canadiens @ Senators: Canadians keep coming

For our new readers and members, the Top Six Minutes is a continuation of the in-game discussion. We try to keep it light and entertaining. Full recaps are available the morning after each game.


  • Let us make senators pay like we did with the Oilers – literally.
  • Jake Allen in net is the only change tonight. This means, you guessed it, that we get the Byron-Kotkaniemi-Lehkonen line again tonight. # Rather soft

1st period

  • Suzkui has great luck early on, but Tkachuk the Torment gets his stick in the way.
  • Well, we know Allen is careful after he stops that Bishop slap, so that’s good.
  • There is a strong Gallyness going on. I feel a goal coming …
  • And There you go! Danault opens the scoring with Gally (naturally) and Tatar picking up the apples.
  • Petry heads for the box for tripping Tkachuk with less than a minute to go in the period.
  • Rather uniform strokes. Even the energy. Canadians are in the lead. I’ll take it.

2nd period

  • Byron on the set with a short delay of 48 seconds! There are also slipped in some pretty nifty moves.
  • Jake Evans himself had a shift to get help on Byron’s goal.
  • Smoother Suzuki moves but nothing to show for it again. I will also blame Tkachuk for this. Just because.
  • Allen denies Tkachuk with a quick save from the stick. This Jake Allen guy is pretty good. I say we keep it.
  • We are moving towards the power play. A power-play goal to go with Byron’s shorty would be kinda nice.
  • Slick Nick with another big chance, this time a breakaway, but nadda. We’re heading into another power play thanks to Rielly hooking Suzuki, so there’s that.
  • Your time is approaching, Nick. I can feel it.
  • The Canadians overtook the Sens 28-17. Canadians still have energy. Canadians are still in the lead. I’ll take it.

3rd period

  • Kotkaneimi is hit hard by Tkachuk. I mean, it wasn’t a McDavid-sized hit or anything, just your typical “It’s my job to be a pain” hit.
  • A spiffy spin-o-rama from Evans and Perry finishes it off to wear it 3-0!
  • Evans is definitely working on making his mark tonight.
  • Gally objective !! Oh, how happy Gally’s goals make me. Especially when it gives the Canadiens a 4-0 lead.
  • Paul is in trouble for roughing up Lehkonen (don’t be there) and we’re heading into the power play with four minutes to go.
  • Oh Leky. We have less than two minutes left and you take a penalty.
  • And Brown immediately ruins Allen’s shutout.
  • They might not be back-to-back shutouts, but they are back-to-back wins.
  • I’ll take it.
