Canadiens vs Red Wings: Second Period Thread

New, comments

Montreal played decently, but as per usual their lack of discipline was apparent.

It could have been worse.

A slew of questionable penalties mid-way through the frame led to a Zetterberg goal.

Douglas Murray was on the ice, so technically Zetterberg scored on a 5 on 2.

The good news is that Montreal showed some spark when not hampered by penalties, and hopefully they'll keep it up in the second. They didn't generate many high scoring chances, but they did put a decent amount of pucks towards Gustavsson.

Considering Murray had more ice time than Markov, the Habs are lucky it's only 1-0.
