Third Period Thread

Absolutely terrific hockey game so far. Two eastern conference powerhouses have been essentially equal to each other through 40 minutes in balance of play and goals.

-Buzzerbeater goal by Subban to tie the game up. Bylsyma's expression was the best part.

-Tight game on shot events, 42-38 the minor advantage to Pittsburgh.

-Bad stretch of time for Price in the 2nd put the Habs behind but the team has ralied to recover.

-Pacioretty is so good beside the net. One goal and one almost goal there tonight. He was masterful there when it was his spot on the PP in 2010-11
