After one period the score is 2-0 Habs over the Panthers, and what a period it was!
20 minutes down, 40 to go.
Game summary so far:
03:26 MTL T. PLEKANEC (1) SNAP - ASST: B. GIONTA (1) AND R. DIAZ (2) 1 - 0 MTL
13:24 MTL PPG - A. MARKOV (1) SLAP - ASST: M. PACIORETTY (1) AND D. DESHARNAIS (1) 2 - 0 MTL

12:21 FLA STEPHEN WEISS : DELAYING GAME - SMOTHERING PUCK - 2 MIN
17:49 MTL JOSH GORGES : TRIPPING - 2 MIN (GEORGE PARROS)
Who would have guessed that would happen?
Tomas Plekanec scored off of a great feed from Brian Gionta with Alex Kovalev lazily backchecking (remember that?). Oddly enough, as pointed out by Stephan Cooper, Gionta, Plekanec, and Raphael Diaz were all in on the team's first two goals of the season.
Let's have 40 more minutes of that, shall we?
