Canadiens vs Sharks third period thread

The Habs still lead 1-0.

Jean-Yves Ahern-USA TODAY Sports

Carey Price was very active to start the second period, facing 6 shots on 8 shot attempts within the first five minutes of the period. As the period progressed, the Habs answered the pressure put on them by evening out puck possession by the midway point of the period (34-34), and only one scoring-chance less than the Sharks (11-12).

Alex Galchenyuk, Tomas Plekanec and Brendan Gallagher have been the best line for the Habs tonight, collectively +19 CF, with offensive zone starts being evenly distributed across the top three lines. The flow of this game is being dictated by the Habs, while the Sharks seem to be resorting to bowling players into Carey Price who has frustrated their shooters stopping all 18 shots the Sharks have thrown his way.
