Canadiens vs Senators: Second Period Thread

New, comments

The tide miiiiiiiiiiiight be turning.

What a period!

Ottawa set the pace early, bombarding Carey Price with shots, but a Tomas Plekanec shorthanded goal and a Max Pacioretty power play snipe means Montreal leads 2-0.

David Desharnais put the cherry on the 1st period sundae by scoring an even strength goal late in the frame.

But hold the phone! A fluke goal by MacArthur and an ensuing goal by Karlsson trimmed the lead to 1.

Hold on tight, it's going to be a wild one.
