The Habs powerplay did not do much to start the second period. The opportunity to grab a lead was squandered, but we did get to see P.K. Subban take a 4 minute shift. The first half the of the second period proceeded with the action flying from one side of the ice to the other, with the bulk of the offense coming from the Habs who by the ten minute mark were outshooting the Leafs 11-3.
David Booth elbows P.K. Subban and gives the Habs another crack on the powerplay. When they were established in the zone there was a lot of puck movement but none of the two or three clear shots taken could find the net.
Price stops Kessel on a partial breakaway. Kessel has only scored 3 goals in his last 16 games. None of them were against Carey Price. The break seemed to give the Leafs some momentum as they maintained some pressure in the Habs zone on a shift by the Kessel line. In the end, Price smothered the puck after making two or three really good saves to keep the game tied 1-1.
Christian Thomas is assessed a goaltender interference penalty with 2:25 left in the period. The Leafs powerplay, which is ranked 14th and 2.1% more effective than the Habs' powerplay, could not convert.
The game is still tied 1-1 heading into the third period. The Habs shot advantage to start the period was cut down completely, as the shots on goal to end the period were listed as 21-19 for the Habs, and shot attempts 44-30 (CORSI).
