The Habs are up 3-1 heading into the second period.

The Habs wasted no time getting on the board. Manny Malholtra won a face-off to P.K. Subban who snapped it in for his 12th goal of the season. Manny got his 2nd assist of the year on the face-off win.

Watching Brandon Dubinsky get contorted on a hit from Tom Gilbert in slow-motion makes you realize what a rough game hockey is. The goal he scored on Carey Price came from a bad angle, and although it tied the game the Habs regained the lead on a blast from Andrei Markov as he took a past from a buzzing David Desharnais who had picked up a dumped-in puck from the Blue Jackets' corner.

Five minutes into the game and it was 2-1 Habs.

The pace didn't slow. Both the Habs and Jackets kept coming at each other. The difference was in the Habs 90% shooting accuracy, having registered 9 shots on 10 shot attempts.

Max Pacioretty scored his 30th goal to give the Habs a 3-1 lead with 5:24 to go in the period. By the end of the first period the Habs had out-CORSI'ed the Blue Jackets 21-14, and had successfully landed 13 shots on net.
