Canadiens vs Rangers second period thread

Elsa

No more power plays. For or against. Don't wanna see'em. Emelin injured? Montreal down by 1, but still hanging after one period of play in game 4.

Is it possible to refuse powerplays? We've seen this song and dance before from the Canadiens, so it's not a big surprise that the PP is their kryptonite or somehow turns them into the Bizarro Canadiens - "It am good to allow a goal".

The skating in this game has been great, tons of speed, very little time spent in the neutral zone, lots of breakouts. Unfortunately I'm describing the Rangers' game, not Montreal's. I kid, I kid. I wonder if the Canadiens would be improved if Beaulieu took Emelin's spot and hey, we may see that in Game 5. Definitely not how I want to see Beaulieu enter the lineup. Not sure on Emelin's status, but he didn't return to play the rest of the period. He did, I just insert errors so you'll catch'em. I'm like Astro Boy that way.

I had hoped that two days off would improved the Habs' perceived "sluggishness", but they don't seem to have shaken it off. They're solid 5 on 5, they're just looking not so solid on special teams. The game isn't out of reach, Tokarski is playing as well as he did in Game 3 - exactly what the Habs need, and the Habs are getting shots and chances. They haven't look dominating, but more importantly they haven't been dominated.
