The PP started to look decent at the end of the first and the effort came to fruition in the second with a PK blast from Markov and Galchenyuk that burned Pickard. It doesn't mean the powerplay ills have gone away, but it's a nice start.
I love when a team is embarrassed by a turnover and it isn't my team. Galchenyuk looked great on that goal, is there any doubt that he is (currently, and maybe eternally) the best talent to come out of that 2012 draft?
Hated that Hejda-Gallagher mash-up (but our guy's ok), hated Bro Hymn by Pennywise being played, hated Don Cherry's rant and Ron's terrible pun, loved that Plekanec post ringer late in the second, kind of enjoyed seeing Tinordi score a victory over Cody McLeod. What a lopsided bout. It was like Glass Joe vs Mr. Dream. If Tinordi played for the Leafs, they'd have a whole GD Coach's Corner dedicated to him.
Oh and there was a pretty nifty* Subban goal to close out the period. Don't send the Habs to the penalty box. Can't wait to see what happens when Bourque steps out of the sin bin gate.
Hey! This is a pretty fun game.
