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.


1st Period

4:38 MTL PPG-R. Bourque ASST: PK Subban

12:01 MTL M. Bournival ASST: A. Markov, PK Subban

2nd Period

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.
