Good Afternoon Addicts!
|Carey Price drops his tooth off at the bench during last night's|
29 save win against the Ottawa Senators
With Eller, Max Pacioretty and captain Brian Gionta out of the line-up things were looking pretty grim heading into game two of the best of seven series. The Habs however played the way they needed to in order to tie the series up before heading to the nation's capital.
Carey Price played excellent, hopefully putting to rest the doubt that too many Montreal fans have in the team's number one goalie. Price made 29 saves and lost a tooth en route to leading the Canadiens past the Senators.
Ryan White played what was probably his best game in a Habs uniform scoring the team's first goal, throwing three hits and getting under the skin of the Senators. Rene Bourque threw three hits of his own and added an assist giving him two points in two games.
Brendan Gallagher and Alex Galchenyuk showed no signs of playoff nerves as they teamed up for the game winning goal after being reunited on a line with Brandon Prust. The Gally's each have two points in as many games and are looking very promising in their first post season at the NHL level.
With the series tied at one, the series will resume at Scotiabank Place in Kanata tomorrow night. If the Habs show the energy they displayed last night they should have no problem banking at least one win in Ottawa.

- I have to say, I half expected the Penguins to beat the Islanders in three but after last night's comeback by the Islanders I can't help but wonder if Marc-Andre Fleury will blow it for the Pens for the second straight years. Justin Glock (@JTGlock) of thehockeywriters.com takes a look at last night's collapse by the Penguins.
- Michel Therrien is focused on the task at hand rather than showing a willingness to lose his cool as he might have ten years ago.
