The Habs best players in terms of creating offense were Lars Eller and Brendan Gallagher, who were buzzing around the offensive zone. Lars Eller had a perfect CF% of 100, being on the ice for 9 shot attempts for and 0 against. Brendan Gallagher was also perfect in CF% and was on the ice for 6 shot attempts for and 0 against. All that's needed now is that extra spark to put one in the net, past Mike Smith, who is standing up to everything so far.
