So Prust starting the game with Plekanec and Sekac was an odd surprise. Andrighetto on the fourth line was disappointing, but not totally unexpected as he and Bournival were taking line rushes with the fourth grouping during practice. Perhaps Prust's recent "hot streak" garnered him the promotion.
Really liked the puck movement from the Eller line. Is DEP styling gel still a thing? No? Alright. You could call it the Dep line short for Depanneur - lord knows why, maybe they love getting beers at the corner store.
How many shots could Price save before he gave one up? Okposo, Tavares, and Visnovsky teamed up to score on the 11th shot of the game.
Another terrible first period showing by the Habs. Relying on Price to bail them out time after time will haunt them this year.
