Canadiens vs Penguins second period thread

The Habs lead the Pens 1-0 after the first period. Max Pacioretty scored his 18th goal of the season to give the Canadiens the lead.

Lots of skating. Lots and lots of skating. Everyone's flying, pushing the pace, moving their feet like lightning. It seems like both teams are going to keep pushing the pace until the other side cracks. This kind of game makes me nervous, especially as the Habs powerplay suffers and the defensive zone coverage keeps breaking down.

(We can't complain about the powerplay. Okay? It doesn't exist. You can't complain about something that is non-existent.)

What a tight period. 1-0 after one. The Habs will start the 2nd period on the ... powe--r... pla..y.. ugh.
