Canadiens vs Bruins: Second Period Thread

New, comments

A damn fine period indeed.

Richard Wolowicz

What a start!

Alexei Emelin opened the scoring with a little help from a George Parros screen,exactly how everyone predicted!

That's the second time this year that Parros' screen has led to a goal, and if he's going to get minutes he might as well make the best of his gigantic body.

Montreal continued to carry the play for the first half of the period, receiving 4 scoring chances from the DD line, including a couple on a brutal turnover by Zdeno Chara.

Rene Bourque remained on the power play, because Therrien. Who else can't wait for Galchenyuk to be back?

A beautiful breakaway goal by Pacioretty gave Montreal the 2-0 lead, but a Dougie Hamilton point shot deflected off David Krejci's stick/skate and fooled Budaj. 2-1 heading into the second period.
