Canadiens vs Leafs: Third Period Thread.

Gionta was clutch as Toronto looked to be running away with a win.

Claus Andersen

Classic Therrien.

Price had to be sharp to keep the score close early, stopping Phil Kessel on a breakaway (Sochi Preview?). Then Therrien happened.

He thought it would be a good idea to put Parros on Pacioretty's line while Kessel was on the ice.

Predictably Montreal was scored on as Gorges chased his man high.

Therrien should win the Jack Adams this year, hands down.

Raymond added another goal in the dying minutes of the period on the power play.

Gionta responded with 12 seconds left in the frame. Happy Birthday to the captain!
