A remarkably even period with a remarkably even score.

NONE

PENALTY SUMMARY

1ST PERIOD

13:00 MTL Lars Eller Hooking - 2 min against Peter Regin

15:10 NYI Colin McDonald Tripping - 2 min against Lars Eller

A scoreless period with nothing much to complain about, and some pretty good things to talk about.

The Canadiens' PK has been transformed, and holy crap is it good all of a sudden. Not only is it limiting chances, but it's aggressive offensively and creating chances.

The powerplay also looked excellent, at least until Raphael Diaz and Francis Bouillon took over for P.K. Subban and Andrei Markov, but somehow, they didn't light the lamp.

Puck luck sucks.
