Well no one can say that Habs aren't in it...
Certainly not a world beater of a period, there were some signs of life from the Habs; shots were a little closer, Tokarski's play, which was good before, has improved, and the GDP line has come through with Gallagher and Pacioretty getting assists on the Markov goal.
I'm not going to say that Tokarski has been hung out to dry, but I thought I saw some clothespins attached to his jersey. Sorry, that is the worst dad joke I have ever made. It's been a long day.
Vanek continues to be on a one-man quest to dissuade anyone in the Montreal organization from trying to re-sign him in the off-season.
We also discovered that Glenn Healy loves Robert De Niro. Glenn Healy is a huge Awakenings fan.
Not an overwhelming period, but the Habs appeared to have stopped the bleeding. Big stop by Tokarski on Nash to at the end of the period, Canadiens rush up ice, and Gallagher gets stopped by McDonagh and comes away with a penalty and without a chance on net. Is there anything that more precisely encapsulates how this series has gone for the Habs? Positive signs always seem to be immediately snuffed out by their opposite number.
