Second Period Thread: Montreal Canadiens vs Ottawa Senators
After a cheesy penalty on Tomas Plekanec lead to a goal by Silfverberg, the Habs came back to take a 2-1 lead.
01:38 OTT PPG - J. SILFVERBERG (2) WRIST - ASST: P. WIERCIOCH (4) AND K. TURRIS (4) 1 - 0 OTT
02:13 MTL D. DESHARNAIS (3) TIP-IN - ASST: M. PACIORETTY (5) 1 - 1 TIE
11:29 MTL E. COLE (2) BACKHAND - ASST: F. BOUILLON (4) AND P. SUBBAN (2) 2 - 1 MTL
00:24 MTL TOMAS PLEKANEC : INTERFERENCE - GOALKEEPER - 2 MIN (CRAIG ANDERSON)
09:26 OTT DANIEL ALFREDSSON : TRIPPING - 2 MIN (RENE BOURQUE)
11:51 OTT KYLE TURRIS : INTERFERENCE - 2 MIN (LARS ELLER)
How about Max Pacioretty? An assist just over 2 minutes into his miraculous return from emergency surgery.
Who's the most surprising today? How about Francis Bouillon? His assist on Erik Cole's gol showed extreme patience, and he made several excellent plays in his own zone. It could be a little bit of the Subban Effect™, but Bouillon has made some smart, heads up plays.
Habs lead on shot attempts 20-14, and doubled the Senators up on Fenwick 16-8.
