The Habs are down 3-1.

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

The Habs did not look very good to start the game. Price's 158 minute shutout streak was broken five minutes into the game, as Drew Stafford was allowed two chances on him alone in front of the net. Near the midway point of the period, right before Brandon Prust came out of the penalty box, the Habs had only registered 1 shot on goal. But then, he came out of the box. The destruction he brought with him, onto Tyler Myers and then taking out his wrath on the puck with a blast to the low corner, tied the game.

A defensive breakdown later and the Habs find themselves down 2-1. Late in the period, again with the Eller on the ice, Brian Gionta throws a shot on the net and puts the Sabres up 3-1. I don't think I saw Eller on the ice after that, but in 3:56 of ice time he was -3.
