Canadiens vs Blue Jackets third period thread

The Habs still lead 3-1 heading into the third period.

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports

From the 15 minute mark of the first period to the five minute mark of the second period, the Habs had only allowed 1 shot attempt. The Blue Jackets did eventually get their shots, with Carey Price not absorbing the pucks as well as he normally does (but stopping them nonetheless), which led to a ridiculous goal attempt by Corey Tropp, who flicked the puck off the top of the net to himself and smacked it in out of the air, all on his back. Nice try.

Midway through the second period and the Jackets  had caught up to the Habs offensively and were outshooting them 15-14. The trend would continue, with the Blue Jackets holding the edge in play to end the second period 35-31 CF, and 21-19 in shots on goal.

Line Change: It looks as though Devante Smith-Pelly has replaced Lars Eller on the second line alongside Tomas Plekanec and Alex Galchenyuk after a few shifts to conclude the second period.
