It didn't take long for Ryan O'Reilly to light things up in the second period. O'Reilly, Tanguay, and Duchene teamed up on the Avs' second goal scored at the 35 second mark. The old Habs would have been devastated, but the new Habs scored on a power play goal less than 6 minutes later. Markov got some help from Galchenyuk and Plekanec and buried his 3rd goal of the season past Calvin Pickard.
The Habs got lucky in the second when Duchene looked to have banked one past Carey Price. The replay showed that the puck never fully crossed the goal line keeping the score knotted at 2. That luck didn't carry them through the period as Tyson Barrie got a wrist shot past Carey Price (with help from Prust) just past the midway point of the game to put the Avs up 3-2.
However P.K. Subban was not about to let Tyson Barrie hog all the offensive defenseman praise. Subban's 6th of the year tied the Habs and the Avs up at 3.
