Canadiens vs Maple Leafs: Second Period Thread

A great period from the Habs' top possession performers has them ahead of Toronto by two goals.



00:58 MTL PPG - Max Pacioretty (8) Wrist shot - ASST: P.K. Subban (19), Carey Price (1) 1 - 0 MTL

16:13 MTL P.K. Subban (4) Wrist shot - ASST: Max Pacioretty (3), David Desharnais (5) 2 - 0 MTL



00:20 TOR Carl Gunnarsson Interference - 2 min against Max Pacioretty

18:06 MTL Tomas Plekanec Cross checking - 2 min against Nazem Kadri

Possession monsters Subban and Pacioretty crushing the possession denying Leafs is probably the best kind of irony imaginable.

The Canadiens did sit back after Pacioretty's first goal a little bit and allowed the Leafs a few good shifts, but the play so far has been solid.

A Leafs goal was called off because JVR wouldn't let Price telescope out and save it, Leafs fans are not pleased about it, but it was the right call according to the rules. You can see in the replay that Price isn't able to adjust his depth, which means he wasn't allowed to make an attempt to save the puck. No goal, suckers.
