Full recaps are up the morning after every game.

First Period.

  • A minute in, and Edmundson to the sin-bin. That’s progress, normally it would have been a goal against.
  • Stastny goes a minute later, 4-on-4.
  • Holy... That really should have gone in. Tatar missing from in close.
  • Perry and Drouin has a puck dancing on the goal line, but somehow it stays out.
  • Allen with two important saves.
  • Montreal doesn’t look structured at all, and that goes for both ends of the ice.
  • Could have been worse, could have been better too.

Second Period

  • Another first minute penalty, holding for Weber...
  • Weber comes in, Dubois goes out. Power play for Montreal.
  • Jets hits the post and the crossbar, but referee says “no goal!”
  • Sustained pressure from Jets, Leskinen has a long shift and Stastny scores. Bad guys lead.
  • Drouin to the sin-bin.
  • Stastny and Weber to the box, for what seems five or six cross checkings.
  • Allen saves the hot potato, that could have been the game.
  • Ehlers scores directly after, so yes, thats that.
  • Coach’s challenge..... GOAL! So back on the box play.
  • Allen with another big save when he is alone with attacker.
  • 3-0...

Third Period

  • How many revere retro jerseys would have been on the ice right now, if there was a crowd in Centre Bell?
  • Kulak decides to just not skate back on the breakaway, Allen saves.
  • Missconduct on Perry... that’s his game.
  • Edmundson to the box, they should have a revolving door to the sin-bin tonight.
  • 4-0, it took seven seconds.
  • and a fight...
  • Turnover by Weber, 5-0.
  • Burn these blue reverse retro jerseys.
