Canadiens at Penguins - Second Period Thread

Remember when everyone was blaming Carey Price? Yeah, not the problem.

SCORING SUMMARY

1ST PERIOD

07:24 PIT B. SUTTER (10) SNAP - ASST: M. NISKANEN (8) AND K. LETANG (27) 1 - 0 PIT

09:30 PIT B. MORROW (10) WRIST - ASST: P. DUPUIS (16) AND C. ADAMS (6) 2 - 0 PIT

19:39 PIT PPG - J. IGINLA WRIST - ASST: C. KUNITZ AND K. LETANG 3 - 0 PIT

PENALTY SUMMARY

1ST PERIOD

05:36 PIT MATT COOKE : ROUGHING - 2 MIN (TOMAS PLEKANEC)

06:38 MTL BRENDAN GALLAGHER : HI-STICKING - 2 MIN (BROOKS ORPIK)

18:22 MTL MAX PACIORETTY : TRIPPING - 2 MIN (MATT NISKANEN)

You wouldn't believe it from that abysmal period, but the Canadiens are +4 Fenwick and +9 Corsi at even strength right now against the Penguins.

This bad streak is mostly luck driven but there are clearly some problems. Chief among them is that P.K. Subban is the only top 4 defenseman on this team playing like he's worth a damn.
