Canadiens vs Bruins second period thread

Two really smart Bruins fans. - Bruce Bennett

Penalty mode suddenly goes on and Bruins lead 1-0 after the first period in Game 5.

Some thoughts:

Brandon Prust had some difficulties it would seem, clearing the puck on the first Habs' penalty kill was certainly one of them.

Someone paused the game, went into settings, and turned the penalties mode on. I hope they also change the period length to five minutes to minimize the damage some of these players could cause to their own team (ahem Murray ahem).

Natural enemies Gallagher and Marchand have found each other, watching them hate each other is fantastic. It's like Hawkeye fighting Green Arrow. Two very similar jerks butting heads, betting money depends on which cantankerous lil guy you root for more.

If only this game was won and lost on hits and not goals, maybe just maybe there could be justification as to why some players are in the lineup.

How did only Plekanec get a penalty on that play?

Soderberg scores - mercifully it isn't on the power play - and Boston hold a 1-0 lead going into the second.
