The Habs lead by one goal heading into the third period.

Carey Price kept the Habs up 2-1 with an acrobatic save made with the calm of ninja. Price's true identity, a monomi, or one who sees, cannot be hidden for much longer as he is called upon to make impossible saves for his team.

Midway through the period the Blue Jackets had the edge in play having recorded 43 total shot attempts to the Habs 33. A powerplay given to the Habs on a Fedor Tyutin trip yielded no shots and the Blue Jackets were right back in the Habs' zone when their penalty expired exerting pressure. By the end of the period, the Blue Jackets had created 51 shot attempts against Carey Price's net during the game, while the Habs sputtered through the period to reach the 40 shot attempt mark, registering only 5 shots on goal during the second period.
