Canadiens vs Predators - Second Period Thread

The worst period of the season.



12:31 NSH PPG - S. Weber (2) Wrist shot - ASST: D. Legwand (3), F. Forsberg (2) 1 - 0 NSH



01:02 MTL R. Diaz Delaying Game - Puck over glass - 2 min

10:28 MTL P. Subban Tripping - 2 min against K. Klein

11:50 MTL R. White Delaying Game - Puck over glass - 2 min

14:15 NSH V. Bartley Interference - Goalkeeper - 2 min against C. Price

15:23 MTL R. Bourque Holding - 2 min against S. Jones

18:11 NSH P. Gaustad Boarding - 2 min against D. Briere

18:38 NSH E. Nystrom Holding - 2 min against P. Subban

18:38 MTL P. Subban Unsportsmanlike conduct - 2 min against E. Nystrom

That was bar none the worst period the Montreal Canadiens have played this season, and they weren't helped by a series of awful calls and even worse non-calls.

P.K. Subban continues to get penalties for not playing hockey the white right way, but the worst call of the period came in the form of both officials completely ignoring a blatant head shot by Gabriel Bourque on Josh Gorges.

Even worse? The coaching staff didn't keep him off the ice for a single shift. Gorges was right back out there, deflecting a shot past Carey Price to give the Predators a 1-0 lead. It wasn't his fault, but there's no way that Gorges should be playing in this game without going through the quiet room. Not only was he subject to a head shot, but his head hit off the glass right after and he looked groggy. An incredibly irresponsible decision by the Canadiens.
