The Canadiens came out with a great start and the third line came through! Jiri Sekac scored giving the Hab their first 1st period goal since November 22nd against the Bruins. Over a week without a first period goal. That seems just ridiculous and sad.
The joy of Jiri Sekac scoring and scoring first was not to last long as Daniel Briere knotted it up with less than 40 seconds left to play in the first. The deflation in the room was palpable.
