Lars Eller scored on the Habs' 41st shot attempt and 23rd shot of the game. The goal was Lars' first in 15 games and second goal in 30 games, but his 10th of the year due to a hot month of October when he scored . Lars was one of the Habs top performers in the first period and stringed together a solid effort in the second, putting up a CF% 59.2 of and landing 27 shots on net.

The Habs have the lead, and are driving the majority of the play, holding the Coyotes to 25 FF while generating 38 FF for a majority FF% of 60. Carey Price may be called upon to make a save or two in the third period, but it's what he does best. The Habs are only up by 1 goal and will want to keep putting the pressure on a weaker Coyotes team.
