Canadiens vs Blue Jackets - Second Period Thread

Its the PK Subban show at the Bell Center tonight. Montreal's top pairng puts the team in control of the match through 20 minutes.


1st Period

4:38 MTL PPG-R. Bourque ASST: PK Subban

12:01 MTL M. Bournival ASST: A. Markov, PK Subban

- Hail PK Subban. Praise him with great praise.

- Andrei Markov was pretty good with him too, although his fall while trying to be Subban while 4 on 4 might have been costly if it had not been diffused. Still, a wicked pass to set up Michael Bournival for his first career marker.

- Josh Gorges and Raphael Diaz had some struggles especially in comparison to the top pair. But nothing near fatal.

- I think Carey Price likes the long bomb shots that come with holding the lead against a bad team. Looking pretty comfortable in net.

- The 4th line had some strong cycle shifts in the offensive zone. Rare to see that level of ability on a bottom line.

- David Desharnais is improving from his initial suckatude. Daniel Briere not so much.

- Columbus dearth of forward talent without Nathen Horton or Marion Gaborik is telling in this match
