Canadiens vs Rangers second period thread

"Play like there's no tomorrow"

A great effort from the get-go, Montreal finds themselves up by one heading into the second period, relying on just the tip from Alex Galchenyuk, and a great snap shot by Tomas Plekanec.

Tokarski produced at least one highlight worthy save, meanwhile Stepan's goal was admittedly a little weak.

Insert every single cliché here. (Backs against the walls, cornered animal, do or die, last hurrah, never say never)
