After a great start, continual lack of attention to details on faceoffs burned the Canadiens.

In a game that has a playoff vibe, the Canadiens' attention to detail in their own zone and off of faceoffs has been extremely lacking. They got off to a good start, but the Blue Jackets have been afforded far too many easy scoring chances through bad reads and flat out bad plays.

The worst of which have come from David Desharnais, who seemed to only bother showing up for one shift, near the end of the period. Desharnais not paying attention on the powerplay caused an icing, and his soft play on the ensuing faceoff led to the Jackets getting a shorthanded goal to tie the game.

Carey Price has been astounding, otherwise this game would be ugly.
