Canadiens vs Rangers third period thread

Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports

Terrible calls and terrible luck conspire to push game 2 out of the reach of the Habs. Rangers lead 3-1 after 2 periods of play.

Why does that Charlie Brown music continue to play?

The Canadiens continue to dominate 5 on 5, but continue to lose this game. The powerplay gift to the Rangers by the refs certainly didn't help. The calls in this game have been baffling. The non-call when Bourque was tripped blew my mind.

I don't want to be too hard on Brandon Prust, but I'm not sure why he continues to draw penalty killing time or any time for that matter. His stats on ExtraSkater for this game hurt my stomach.

Luck has certainly not gone the Habs way this period. Not a lot to like about this and despite it being Game 2, it feels like the Habs' chances are withering away. The only ray of hope is an approximately minute and a half powerplay for the Habs to start the third.
