This entire period can be summer up using one word:
Pasta showed promise of continuing his point streak with a wraparound opportunity , but the Habs drew first blood on the ice and the scoreboard, while the trash child ("l'enfant de poubelle") Brendan Gallagher scores, leaving Dobby and the defence in the dust.
Gallagher goal comes off a smart pair of passes. Khudobin is in decent position to face the shot, but the speed and location are too good. pic.twitter.com/cg9QfuTPvn— Paul Campbell (@WayToGoPaul) October 23, 2016
Next, Phillip Danault (whose name reminds me of a power drill), scores, capitalising on a barely open shot.
Danault goal: this is a fast rush with a great pass across. Khudobin opens up under the arm just enough to let shot through. Hard to stop. pic.twitter.com/LvIA9unInU— Paul Campbell (@WayToGoPaul) October 23, 2016
I don't want to see the Second Period Collapse rear its ugly head, and I don't think we collapsed, but holy SMOKES we did not look as good as we did in the second. The missed penalty against the Habs on Bergeron did nothing to change momentum, so we go to the third with held breath and crossed fingers.
For the record, SHUTOUT.
