The Habs are hanging in there with the champs. It's tied 1-1.

Dennis Wierzbicki-USA TODAY Sports

The Habs gave up the first goal of the game 2:40 into the first period Erik Gustafsson captured a puck turned over by Dale Weise in the neutral zone and fed Richard Panik for a one-timer to beat Ben Scrivens.

The Habs didn't get their first shot on net, and were held to just one shot attempt, until the 6:13 mark, when Jeff Petry recorded the Habs' first shot of the game, and then Lars Eller jumped on the rebound to beat Corey Crawford to tie it 1-1.

The Canadiens finished the period with just six shots on net on seventeen shot attempts. Ben Scrivens made nine saves in his first action since January 5th in Philadelphia.

It's 1-1 heading into the second period.
