Remember how we've been saying that the Habs have been sitting on one goal leads too much? That period was a great example of that.

For the first 18 minutes of the game, Montreal was taking it to the Devils, then they sat back and started playing prevention hockey. That never works. Fortunately Peter Budaj is sharp and the Devils have trouble scoring.

Somehow the Habs still lead the shot count 20-19 in spite of being out Corsied 39-29.
