Canadiens vs Predators second period thread

The Habs trail 1-0 heading into the second period.

Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports

The Predators got off to an early advantage by putting on the pressure with 5 shot attempts and 4 successful shots on net within the first 2:18 minutes played. The Habs amped up the pressure, suddenly tallying 10 shots on net between the 3 and 9 minute mark, but they were unable to beat Pekka Rinne.

Mattias Ekholm put an end to Carey Price's shutout streak, and grabbed the first goal of the game. The Preds are good at making this matter, winning 80% of the games in which they scored first, while the Habs have been able to come back for the win after being scored on first 43% of the time.

War-on-Ice has the Habs up on scoring chances 8-5.
