Canadiens vs Predators - Third Period Thread

A slightly better period that was still pretty bad, as the Canadiens tied the game but lost Danny Briere.

Two blatant Predators head shots have now gone uncalled, the second of which has put Danny Briere out of the game.

There were more positives to look at in that period, but the Canadiens are still taking too many penalties and getting outplayed severely. The way the game is being called is clearly part of that, as only one team is getting punished for infractions, but the Canadiens are clearly missing Max Pacioretty.

After scoring his first career goal last game, Michael Bournival grabbed the first assist of his young career on Brendan Gallagher's tying goal, though the guy who should get the most credit there is Lars Eller, who is one of the few who has had a good game.

The Habs have one more period to show us they want to keep the winning streak alive.
