- Paul Byron is fast, but Jonathan Quick, is... quicker.
- This game has some pace!
- Brendan Gallagher takes four cross-checks to the back and is still smiling. Wonder how many it would take to break his smile, let alone his back.
- Uhoh, Nikita Scherbak is limping to the dressing room.
- Habs powerplay doesn’t amount to anything but it’s okay, they’re playing well so far and need to keep pressing.
- It’s Andrew Shaw’s 400th game - he deserves a point, right?
- Almost a very good period for the Habs. Almost. KEMPE!!!
- Ah now...
- The Kings smell blood...
- 2-0 Kings ... OR scoreless after one period minus one minute.
- That’s how you respond - come out flying, and draw a penalty. Oh, and Nikita Scherback is.. back.
- No powerplay goal, but a good start to making the two-goal comeback. And look - another powerplay!
- Weber and Pacioretty are lining up shots like it’s happy hour, but none of them are beating Quick.
- It’s probably frustrating for Charles Hudon to go this long without scoring a goal.
- Jonathan Drouin rings the bell of St. Postington, the patron saint of all goalies, and clearly a fan of Jonathan Quick.
- The Canadiens are driving the play and are back on Powerplay St. again.
- And just like that, Jeff Petry takes his team on a left turn and onto four-on-four avenue (I can keep this going for the rest of this post...)
- Now it’s 3-0 LA!... That hurts. Also Scherback has left the bench and I don’t think he’ll return.
- They are truly doing everything they can to score. It’s just not happening.
- Well, it’s back to the dressing room, where all the answers can be found.
- Don’t forget, a three-goal lead is the most dangerous lead in hockey.
- But you know what’s even more dangerous? A four-goal lead. 4-0 Kings.
- The Canadiens are still getting powerplays at least...
- Another post for Drouin.
- The crowd is booing Carey Price. My last glimmer of faith in humanity is lost in this moment.
- The Canadiens will end up outshooting the Kings by a wide margin, but their low shooting percentage is not a normal statistical effect. It is a true anomaly caused by something also anomalous and untouchable. In other words: what in the heck?!
- Jonathan Quick has stopped Max Pacioretty eight times tonight.
- And that’s it. Hopefully this loss doesn’t lead to any over the top reactions... ... but feel free to vent here.
