Third Period Thread: Montreal Canadiens vs New Jersey Devils
After a ridiculously good first period, the Habs fell victim to a flukey tip that looked like a high stick, and the rest wasn't so encouraging.

Patrik Elias tipped a Mark Fayne shot past Carey Price early in the second, and what followed was an ugly, ugly period.
The Canadiens rarely managed get possession of the puck, and when they did nothing impressive seemed to happen with it.
Montreal is still up on the Devils by a goal, but they'll need a 3rd period to seal this one up.
