Canadiens vs Hurricanes second period thread

A solid 1st period? No way!

Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports

As far as first periods go, this might have been Montreal's best opening frame of the season. After some great work from the fourth line to produce a 1-0 scoreline, Brendan Gallagher found his way to the net to give the Habs a solid 2-0 lead. It was Gallagher's 20th goal of the year. Carey Price had little to no work, stopping the four shots sent his way.
