Canadiens vs. Islanders second period thread

Dale Weise scored his 8th to give the Habs a 1-0 lead.

Sergei Belski-USA TODAY Sports

The 1st period began as a heavily defensive affair, with only 4 attempts registered in the first 7 seven minutes. The pace started to pick up around the 10-minute mark, but most stays in the offensive zone for both teams were brief, resulting in a constant counter-attacking flow.

The latter stages of the 1st period resulted in two Canadiens powerplays, which gave them the charge to completely take over the game. Jaroslav Halak had faced 7 shots on 18 shot attempts before Dale Weise tipped in his team-leading 8th goal of the season on the powerplay with under 2 minutes left in the 1st period.
