The Canadiens "support staff" would continue to light the lamp, with Tomas Fleischmann scoring his 2nd of the game 35 seconds into the 2nd period. This will be the 12th game of 13 where the Habs have scored at least 3 goals. The goal would also mark the 5th 3-0 lead the Canadiens have had in 13 games.
David Desharnais would extend the Canadiens' lead to 4-0 after putting home the rebound on a play he created with yet another strong net drive on Michael Hustchinson, who was pulled after the goal. Before tonight, Hutchinson had a .949 sv % and a 1.75 GAA.
Lars Eller put the Habs up 5-0 on a hard pass that deflected off his skate as he stood between the faceoff circles for the Canadiens' 1st powerplay goal of the game to beat Ondre Pavalec who had made 8 saves before Eller's deflection. The Canadiens have the NHLs 7th best powerplay at the moment, and have scored the 2nd most powerplay goals in the league with 11 PPGs.
Mike Condon made some big saves in the 2nd period to keep his net clean. The Jets poured ...on the jets... for a period of time between the 10 minute and 17 minute mark of the 2nd period, but Condon stood tall on a number of saves, using the glove and lunging out with his blocker on one occasion.
