Canadiens vs Red Wings: Third Period Thread

Richard Wolowicz

Rinse, repeat.

What an exciting period!

Kidding, Therrien's system doesn't -do- exciting. It does dumb and chase, and it doesn't do it very well.

Some stuff happened, pucks were put on net, goalies made saves...it was...a hockey period. These period thread write-ups are supposed to be easy, damn it.

It would probably help if period produced something remotely newsworthy, but alas, it didn't. So here we are...

Wait...GALLAGHER SCORES! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! CELEBRATION TIME C'MON! IT'S A CELEBRATION! (I'll take anything I can get right now, desperate times call for desperate measures)

Did I mention Price made a couple ridiculous saves? Par for the course, sadly. If not we would be blown out on a nightly basis. Here's to a better third!

I should mention Montreal showed a little push back after Price made two circus saves. It's almost as if they care.

Then again, they gave up this look immediately after, so they don't care that much.
