It's no secret that the Canadiens need to tighten up defensively. They're keeping shot attempts down, but shots and scoring chances are up. That's the wrong way.

Edmonton could have pillaged a village in the second period without getting a call, they could have been shorthanded the whole period with how many infractions they were committing, but the refs officiated the score instead of the game, and momentum shifted. Who would have thought?

David Perron needs to get hit through the glass, pulled out, and hit through another pane of glass. It needs to happen.
