Canadiens vs Hurricanes: Second Period Thread

New, comments

The Habs have a 2-0 lead for what feels like the first time in 20 games, but they're still being outplayed and doing a lot of dumb things.

SCORING SUMMARY

1ST PERIOD

06:11 MTL Brandon Prust (5) Wrist shot - ASST: Josh Gorges (10), Rene Bourque (2) 1 - 0 MTL

18:44 MTL Brendan Gallagher (14) Wrist shot - ASST: David Desharnais (18), Max Pacioretty (10) 2 - 0 MTL

PENALTY SUMMARY

1ST PERIOD

13:08 CAR Justin Faulk Holding - 2 min against Max Pacioretty

With a 2-0 lead, Michel Therrien looks like he's standing on a landmine. His face is completely still and unchanging, hands in his pockets. I wonder how stressed he is right now? Kind of impressive how confident he was in his last press conference compared to tonight.

The Canadiens played an okay period, but not a great one, and are up 2-0 as a result. This team is talented enough to play okay and win games. There are still some problems though, chief among them being the tendency to let teams walk into their zone however often they like.

But 2-0 so whatever. Hopefully they don't blow it.
