P.K. Subban gift-wrapped a pass to Alex Galchenyuk, which he buried past Viktor Fasth, to open the second period. It seemed like the Habs would cruise on through the period, but less than four minutes after Galchenyuk gave the Canadiens a two goal lead, the Oilers fought their way back in the game with a tip in front a very busy net by Matt Hendricks. Ten minutes of even-play later, and the Oilers busted through again, with Ryan Nugent- Hopkins beating a discombobulated Dustin Tokarski who had lost sight of the puck.
All is even headed into the third period.
