Rocket @ Lightning Top Six Minutes: A wild night with first places south

Thoughts before the game:

  • First of all, I can not believe that this game actually happens to be very honest with all of you.
  • Second, season two of The Witcher has left me extremely disappointed, and I may have to read the books to scrub the flavor out of my mouth.
  • There are also 12 former / current Laval Rocket players in the lineup tonight, so if you have not tuned in to AHLTV this season, you will get a preview tonight.
  • Dear God Tampa has Brayden Point left, poor Samuel Montembeault.

First period

  • Last time Montreal played against Tampa, they had their best effort of the season, is it too much to ask that they might do the same tonight?
  • For four minutes there has been no scoring on them, so I figure it out as a moral victory!
  • Well, they’re trying, and Montembeault is making rescues, so I suppose I can stop looking between my fingers, right?
  • Can Rocket power play be better than Habs power play?
  • So far, the answer is definitely no.
  • What a change of Michael Pezzetta to get that puck to Lukas Vejdemo for the opening goal.
  • Well, that lead was fun while it lasted.
  • Congratulations to Brayden Point, who is apparently going to the Harlem Globetrotters on an AHL team tonight.
  • Apparently, Cedric Paquette got an assist on the Habs goal, so that’s his first point in a Montreal sweater.
  • Brett Kulak is not taking any shit tonight, and honestly I’m here for it.
  • Well, they’re down with a goal, so it’s about as good as we could have hoped for tonight.

Second period

  • I’m not trying to complain too much about comments, but I could do without John Buccigross.
  • Are you down with RHP?
  • Oh no a conflicting power play.
  • Did Habs kill it?
  • And then scored ?!
  • Oh, it’s being waved off, and now I’m sorry.
  • Oh and now it’s been reviewed and the Habs are back on the penalty shootout.
  • And now Tampa has the lead back.
  • Oh no a Habs power play.
  • It was again less than ideal, but we have all come to expect it.
  • I walked out of the room to get a drink, and somehow Tampa is now on a four-minute powerplay?
  • Oh for hell Pezzetta.
  • Hell, Montembeault shows that murder, glad to see he’s done fairly well.

Third Period

  • Starting a period with an almost full powerplay feels very cruel.
  • Well, at least they did not give up a shorthanded breakaway on this PP?
  • I know the Habs did not score, but watching the smart pass from Caufield and Poehling is really refreshing to watch.
  • Please give me more slap-shot targets!
  • Tampa is obviously a single shift away from returning the game, but it’s encouraging to see the Laval Canadiens line up with this kind of match.
  • I swear by god I just got blacked out because I thought I saw David Savard dangle Victor Hedman and score a goal.
  • (Receives a note from the management)
  • It should always be Corey Perry, right?
  • Oh, I do not think I’m going to like overtime.

Over time

  • My heart rate is right now …. Not great!
  • It’s absolutely rubbish to give Tampa a win.
  • It’s a good loss in the end, but that ending is going to bother me for a while.

EOTP 3 stars

3) Much better than socks

2) He must also have received them for Christmas

1) Playing well against the NHL’s top team, thinking about the upcoming first overall pick, not a bad night for fans of the Montreal Canadiens
