Canadiens vs Blue Jackets - Third Period Thread
The Subban giveth and taketh away. Goals against on Subban's elbowing penalty and a bad pinch lead to two Jackets goals, making the game tighter than expected going into the third.
4:38 MTL PPG-R. Bourque ASST: PK Subban
12:01 MTL M. Bournival ASST: A. Markov, PK Subban
6:52 MTL SH-A. Markov
7:41 CLB PPG B. Jenner ASST: R. Johanson, D. Savard
17:11 CLB R. Johanson ASST: F. Tyutin
- Johanson the hero for Lumbus, factoring on both goals to get the Jackets within one.
-A bit ho hum 2nd after the theatrics of the 1st.
-Goal neutral PP with Markov getting a short-handed goal from the point, followed by Boone Jenner getting the inevitable rookie 1st goal a minutes later (assisted by rookie local Dman Savard).
- Twice CBJ neutralizes their powerplays with a fresh penalty.
- Price with the bunny hop over Jenner.
-Unfortunate pinch by Subban leads to a 2 on 1 chance for Johanson, he puts the puck in exactly the right spot in the top corner to get a goal
- After doing so well early, only being up one after 40 feels pretty lame.
- Habs winning shot stats despite score effects. Not a huge margin of possession control in their favour, but the Habs are noticeably controlling the play better than the other side.
