After being utterly embarrassed in the first period, and trailing 3-0, the Montreal Canadiens came out like a house of fire in the second period.
Le Canadien vient de réussir un record d’équipe avec 30 tirs en deuxième période. La marque précédente était de 27 tirs.— J-F Chaumont (@JFChaumontJDM) October 21, 2017
At one point in the period held a 15-0 shot advantage over the Ducks, and have looked like an entirely new team after a bad opening period. With two goals in the second period, and momentum on their side Montreal is very much still in this game.
There have been a lot of really good teams in Canadiens history and for this one, in this circumstance, to set the record it is a pretty remarkable achievement.
The previous record was 27 shots-on-goal, although the several power plays the Canadiens had definitely helped them gain some offensive pressure.
