If Carey Price does get his 200th win tonight, he'll have to thank the tenacity of the Habs' cycle that kept the puck in the Devil's zone for most the game. Well, if he only needs one or two goals to win the game. The Habs have been seeming to play to the level of their goaltender, giving Carey Price exactly what he needs to win.
Michael Bournival's goal six minutes into the second gave the Habs the lead, and broke the monotony of the game. Then late in the period, Pacioretty's heavy shot finds a hole in Kinkaid. That's all this powerplay needs to succeed: a few simple passes and a well placed shot (well, a laser in this case).
2-0 Habs going into the third period, and Carey Price is 20 minutes away from win number 200.
