Canadiens vs Ducks third period thread

The Habs are down 2-0.

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Habs last goal came 17:28 in the third period Saturday against the Leafs when David Desharnais dumped one into an empty net. The dry spell has lasted 102:32 since the Habs put a goal on the board. But not for a lack of effort, as the Habs are standing toe-to-toe in CF with the Ducks with 41, and have thrown 27 shots on net. The opportunities are being created, but not put home. The biggest letdown of the second period for the Habs may have been their powerplay, which went 0/2.

Jiri Sekac had an assist on the Ducks 2-0 goal, his 3rd assist in 5 games with Anaheim. The Habs traded scoring for grit and are playing a gritty game, but what good is grit when you can't score? The Habs will 20 minutes to grind out at least 2 goals.
