Canadiens at Sabres - Second Period Thread

The Habs played a dominant period against the Sabres and came out with a lead? What???

SCORING SUMMARY

1ST PERIOD

06:43 MTL B. GIONTA (12) WRIST - ASST: T. PLEKANEC (16) AND R. BOURQUE (6) 1 - 0 MTL

10:27 MTL A. GALCHENYUK (6) BACKHAND - ASST: M. RYDER (17) 2 - 0 MTL

PENALTY SUMMARY

1ST PERIOD

06:47 BUF PATRICK KALETA : FIGHTING - 5 MIN (BRANDON PRUST)

06:47 MTL BRANDON PRUST : FIGHTING - 5 MIN (PATRICK KALETA)

07:52 BUF ADAM PARDY : HOLDING - 2 MIN (MICHAEL RYDER)

Beautiful passing from Rene Bourque, Tomas Plekanec, and Michael Ryder has the Canadiens up 2-0 over the Sabres after 20 minutes of play.

Even better? The crowd was booing the Sabres a bit after a particularly awesome shift for the Habs, and Steve Ott whined about it again to Elliott Friedman.

Like the last few games against Buffalo, the Canadiens are obliterating on puck possession. The Habs are +12 in Fenwick, +14 in Corsi.

40 more minutes of that please.
