After Washington's 11th shot attempt, the Canadiens carried the play to the tune of a 17-5 shot attempt advantage, even though the Capitals were given an undeserved powerplay.
Brilliant moves by Alex Galchenyuk resulted in the Canadiens breaking through first as Lars Eller shovelled home a loose puck in the goal mouth.
Carey Price's brilliance early kept the Canadiens in this one, and his team rewarded him.
