Canadiens vs. Blues third period thread

It's 2-2 heading into the third period.

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

P.K. Subban ripped his third goal of the season home on the powerplay to draw the Canadiens even at 3:41 of the first period.

The Habs recorded their 30th shot on net at the seven-minute mark of the second period. The game was still tied 1-1 despite the Canadiens having 40 shot attempts to the Blues 24.

Max Pacioretty gave the Habs the lead on their 41st shot attempt of the game, but this would be short-lived as the Blues would score 1:07 later, with Colton Parayko floating a puck past Mike Condon on just the Blues' 14th shot of the game.

Brendan Gallagher stirred things up in front of Brian Elliot as the whistle blew at the thirteen-minute mark of the second period. Three Blues players converged on him after the whistle blew, drawing the ire of captain Max Pacioretty, and everyone on the ice dropped the gloves and grabbed each other leading to a number of penalties resulting in a Habs powerplay.

Alexei Emelin completely wrecked Paiul Stastny which drew attention from the other Blues on the ice. The Blues took a penalty in retaliation. The Habs powerplay was extended when Kevin Shattenkirk took an extra roughing penalty while engaged with Tomas Plekanec after another skirmish after the whistle in front of Brian Elliot.

The Habs did not covert on the 18 seconds of five on three time. They will carry over a powerplay to start the third period.
