Canadiens vs. Blue Jackets third period thread

After a rough second period, the Habs and Jackets are still tied 1-1.

Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports

The Habs killed the remaining three minutes of Alexei Emeilin's five-minute major, allowing only two shots on goal in the process. The Habs earned a powerplay, with Ryan Murray sent off for holding Max Pacioretty. The powerplay generated one shot on net.

Midway through the second period, both sides were flying up and down the ice exchanging shot attempts.  Brian Flynn almost put the Habs up 2-1, but Sergei Brobovsky is looking really sharp tonight, and stuck out the pad as Flynn tried to tuck the puck between Brobovsky's toe and the post.

Nathan Beaulieu took on Nick Foligno after Foligno took out Tomas Fleischmann on an unpenalized hit where Foligno stuck out his knee to cut off Fleischmann who had just stolen the puck at center ice. Beaulieu had his bell rung in the fight, but remained in the game.

The Habs were awarded a powerplay not long afterward, with Kevin Connauton's hook not going unnoticed by the refs. The powerplay couldn't get much going, with a unit of Dale Weise, David Desharnais and Max Pacioretty getting the majority of powerplay icetime.

Michel Therrien had his line-blender out, with David Desharnais and Max Pacioretty reunited for a series of shifts. Dale Weise rounded out the line, and appeared to be there to stay as the period wound down. Plekanec was sent down to the third line. This could just be Therrien's way of celebrating his 700th game.
