Third Period Thread: Montreal Canadiens vs Buffalo Sabres
There's the dominance that the Habs earned in the first period! A goal on their first shot followed by 2 goals in 28 second off the sticks of the two guys that have been in the doghouse.

All that dominance in the first period only resulted in one goal. Well talk about regress to the mean! The Sabres had a bit more jump in the second period, but the Habs are now up 4-0.
Lars Eller set up David Desharnais for his first goal of the season, then scored his own goal 28 seconds later off of a beautiful play by Alex Galchenyuk.
Galchenyuk now has 7 points in 7 games this season by the way. Calder?
