The Canadiens continue to outplay the Capitals pretty severely, but a combination of the referees not calling anything on the Capitals while the defend with trips and holds and some bad puck luck have the Habs down by a goal heading into the third period.
Max Pacioretty has been the standout for the Habs, playing physical and getting tons of chances, but he seems to have at least one Capital hanging off of him at all times. With the Canadiens' undefeated record against the Southeast Division on the line, hopefully he breaks through in the third.
