The Habs are outshooting the Jackets 21-12. They controlled the bulk of the offensive play in the second, but couldn't finish on a number of chances around Sergei Bobrovsky's net.
Michel Therrien's line tinkering is producing a lot of shots, but some aspects of it seem baffling. In particular Jiri Sekac's use on the fourth line. The rookie all-star can't seem to make a good enough impression on his coach to be seen as the offensive catalyst he has proven capable of being when entrusted with the task.
Lots of heat between the two teams to end the second period. The intensity is high with the Habs pressing hard around the Jackets' net, but Bobrovsky looks unshakable.
