Canadiens vs Coyotes second period thread

The Habs are pressing but Mike Smith is standing up.

Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports

The Habs were off to a quick start, coming at the Coyotes with 9-2 CF and landing 5 shots on net within the first five minutes of the game. Within ten minutes, the Habs were outplaying the Coyotes,holdings 68 CF% and outshooting their desert dwelling opponent 8-2. Fast forward to the end of the first period and the Habs had put in an effort 25-14 CF and 15-5 shots on net.

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.
