After dominant a dominant shift by Lars Eller's line set the tone coming off of nearly 4 minutes worth of overlapping penalties, Danny Briere banging home the rebound on his own wraparound attempt on Braden Holtby to give Montreal a 1-0 lead.

The Canadiens didn't give up a single shot on the PK, owing in part to a great shot block by P.K. Subban on Joel Ward.
