Jeff Halpern capitalized on a won puck battle in the middle of the slot to put the Canadiens up 2-1 in another relatively even period between these two teams. Halpern's first of the season also resulted in the first point of Nathan Beaulieu's NHL career.
It likely would have been a heavy advantage for the Habs if not for the one-way calls against P.K. Subban, who was hit to the head, then tackled by the ankles by Tim Brent.
David Desharnais of all people is leading the Canadiens in shots with 4, tied with rookie Brendan Gallagher.
