What a period of execution by the Montreal Canadiens. And doing it while missing their third best defenseman is just another positive to add to a great 20 minutes.

The only real downside to that period was Douglas Murray setting up a perfect breakaway for Nashville and generally being a joke.

Don Cherry is even saying Subban not being on Team Canada is a joke now. Interesting. Speaking of Subban, he played 10:27 in the first period, recording 4 shots, 2 hits, and a goal. Holy crap.
