The Habs came out of the first intermission hard, registering 8 shots within the first two minutes of play of the second period. Five minutes in, when Christian Thomas drew a penalty, the Habs had registered 12 shot attempts on net for the period, 7 less than they had registered in the entire first period.
Goals! Midway through the second period, P.K. Subban was called for a hold on Erik Condra. The Habs killed the penalty, but the Senators were able to score after Subban came out of the box. Pacioretty scored to respond right off the face-off on his third breakaway of the game. The goals were scored 2 seconds apart.
Lars Eller escaped death as Eric Gryba flew and tried to lay out an elbow, but like his synapses, the elbow did not connect. Mark Borowiecki and Brandon Prust dropped the gloves to diffuse the situation. Prust went to the dressing room after the fight and did not return.
P.K. Subban blocked a shot on a Senators powerplay and appeared to injure his foot, leaving for the dressing room. The Habs felt the loss, as pressure mounted from the Senators until eventually Jean-Gabriel Pageau redirected the go ahead goal.
The third period is up next.
