Canadiens vs Lightning second period thread

It's scoreless heading into the second period.

Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports

The Habs and Lightning started off trading chances, with both teams registering 8 shot attempts by the ten minute mark of the first period. The period would then be taken over by the Lightning, who climbed on top of the Habs and held them without any offense for 8:29, with Carey Price holding the fort in the meantime making 10 saves in the first period.

The Habs did not capitalize on a late first period powlerplay that would have been a perfect reward to Carey Price for matching everything the Lightning threw his way. The Habs looked flat from the 8 minute mark of the first period on, although they did get their legs going with a few minutes left to go in the first, but the Habs still ended the period with a very low CF% of 35.4, allowing Tampa Bay to throw 21 shot attempts at Carey Price, and 10 on net as the Habs were active blocking shots in the first period, blocking 8 shots.
