The Habs were completely dominated to start the second period. Before the Habs registered their first shot attempt (a shot on net from Max Pacioretty), the Sharks had thrown 18 shot attempts at Carey Price, 8 shots on net and 1 goal. The Habs last shot on goal previous came 16:21 into the first period, making a it a span of 10:42 without a shot on net.
It wasn't a pretty period for the Habs, who had only registered 1 shot on net and 4 FF in the period with six minutes to go, when they seemed to realize they were playing a hockey game.
The Sharks have total control of the game, up 50-29 CF, 34-18 FF, 24-13 in shots and 3-0 to start the third period.
