The Habs turned the tide with two quick power play goals midway through the second period. P.K. Subban took a high stick from Dainius Zubrus and then created both goals that followed from the resulting double-minor penalty. First with his blast that tipped of Max Pacioretty's leg, and then a behind the back pass to a wide open Lars Eller.
P.K.'s special ability to break open a game was on display again after David Desharnais drew a hooking penalty from Peter Harrold. His set-up for Tomas Plekanec was his third power play assist of the period, putting the Habs up 3-1 to start the third period.
