Canadiens at Jets - Second Period Thread
Story of the game: Francis Bouillon steps on the puck and falls, allowing a harmless play to become a scoring chance and gives the Jets a 1-0 lead.
09:10 WPG J. WRIGHT (2) WRIST - ASST: C. THORBURN (2) 1 - 0 WPG
02:04 MTL LARS ELLER : INTERFERENCE - 2 MIN (GRANT CLITSOME)

14:02 MTL BRANDON PRUST : ROUGHING - 2 MIN (EVANDER KANE)
The Habs overall looked much better in that period than they have in the last 6 games. After Francis Bouillon decided to remind us all why we hate his contract extension, the Canadiens collapsed once again and allowed the Jets to take it to them, but it didn't last.
Instead of feeling sorry for themselves for a period, Montreal managed to take back the puck possession game to the tune of 63.6% in Fenwick, and 64.5% in Corsi.
Carey Price also made several big stops in the first.
