The Habs look a bit sleepy, down 2-0.

The Sharks scored on their 8th shot attempt and 5th shot of the first seven minutes of the first period. The Habs came out flat, not registering their first attempt on net until the 3:30 mark, and then flatlined from the 4:30-8:29 mark of the period getting zero offense. By the time the Habs got going again, the Sharks were up 10-5 CF, but only outshooting the Habs 6-5.

The Habs tried to get their legs going, but did not really succeed, falling behind 25-14 in CF, 16-9 FF and 13-8 in shots on net to end the period.

A little line shuffling... Lines to end the first period were:

Pacioretty - Desharnais - Gallagher

Weise - Plekanec - Galchenyuk

Eller-  De La Rose - Smith-Pelly

Parenteau - Malholtra - Prust

Newly acquired Jeff Petry played 5:00 and was credited with 1 of the Habs' 3 takeaways in the period.
