Alex Galchenyuk wasn't playing games with that dirty deke he put on Kari Lehtonen. The 20 year old has surpassed his career-high point total (31) and tied his career high in goals (13). With the support of a Brandon Prust
buttbankshot goal (on purpose), and a 15 save period by Carey Price, which was almost perfect, the Habs take the lead into the second period 2-1.
The Stars certainly are a free-wheeling team. The Habs should be able to take advantage of that as long as they don't give up any space, which might be hard with guys like Tyler Seguin and Jason Spezza whipping around with the puck.
