Second Period Thread: Montreal Canadiens vs Buffalo Sabres
Dominance to the point of ridiculousness produced only one goal, but a deserved lead heading into the second.
19:52 MTL PPG - R. BOURQUE (2) TIP-IN - ASST: B. GIONTA (2) AND T. PLEKANEC (2)
01:34 BUF TYLER ENNIS : TRIPPING - 2 MIN (BRENDAN GALLAGHER)
02:40 MTL DAVID DESHARNAIS : HOLDING - 2 MIN (MATT ELLIS)
07:12 BUF THOMAS VANEK : HOOKING - 2 MIN (RENE BOURQUE)
18:15 BUF MARCUS FOLIGNO : HOOKING - 2 MIN (RENE BOURQUE)
How bad did the Canadiens outplay the Sabres that period? Let us count the ways.
Shots were 15-1. A 93.76% share for the Habs.
Fenwick (shots + missed shots) was 21-3. An 87.5% share for the Habs.
Corsi (shots + missed shots + blocked shots) was 30-4. An 88.2% share for the Habs,
That was some primo dominance. Unbelievable that it's only a 1-0 lead to be honest. Hopefully we'll see more of the same, but Ruff will have them pushing back.
