  • Montreal Canadiens should avoid dealing out any supplemental medicine tonight, except on the score sheet.
  • Edmundson speaking to Myers during warm-ups...
  • Corey Perry is in, and Paul Byron stays in.

1st Period

  • Please, stay out of the sin-bin today.
  • This is on you, DOPS.
  • First big chance to Kotkaniemi and Toffoli.
  • Penalty cleared.
  • Kulak, with a sweet backhand pass to Suzuki for the opening goal.
  • Romanov is manhandling some dude that wants to go into Price.
  • The refs miss a call on Edler who takes out Andersson.
  • Pettersson hits the post, the post will have a dent in it from that shot.
  • Four-on-four hockey to end the period.

2nd Period

  • Vancouver complains about a weak penalty... schadenfreude.
  • Jordie Benn almost scored for Montreal on that power play.
  • Sustained pressure from Montreal so far.
  • Puck over the glass... Suzuki to the box.
  • Evans hits the post, on the penalty kill...
  • ... and Toffoli gets pushed into the goalie and a scrum gets going.
  • Perry and KK on a counter attack, Corey Perry gets his first as a Canadien.
  • Kotkaniemi with a breakaway chance, good defending and all he could do was getting the puck on Holtby.

3rd Period

  • Elias Pettersson is on the score board, through a deflection, 2-1 Montreal.
  • Nils Höglander with the equaliser. Tied game.
  • Brendan Gallagher with a snipe, Montreal is back in the driving seat.
  • Canucks challenge the play, but the goal stands! Montreal to the power play.
  • Price with some crucial saves.
  • Breakaway! Drouin with a nice fake and Montreal is up by two again.
  • Empty net with four and a half minutes to go.
  • Joel Edmundson with the empty net goal.
