The score sheet is empty, but don't mistake this one for a boring game. Both the Blackhawks and Canadiens are missing half of their star players, but the pace has been superb.

Unfortunately for the Canadiens, their early dominance didn't hold up, with Chicago holding a wide edge in the second half of the period.

Also unfortunately, Alex Galchenyuk went down with an injury early, which puts the Habs in a tough situation.
