Striking Again On The Road

As the Canadiens played their final away game on Sunday night, they would do so in great fashion, as they would face the Panthers in Florida.

  • First Period
    • With only 2 minutes gone by, Desharnais would snip one top shelf beating Panthers goalie, Markstrom. The Canadiens would head to the powerplay at the 11 minute mark, the initial point shot from PK Subban would be tipped in by Michael Ryder as the Canadiens take the 2-0 lead heading into the second period.
      • Montreal: 13 Shots On Goal
      • Florida: 7 Shots On Goal
  • Second Period
    • With no real action coming from the first 15 minutes of play in the second, the Canadiens would take advantage in the last 4 minutes remaining in the period. Brian Gionta would pick up the loose puck in front of the net and just snap one past Markstrom putting the Canadiens up by 3. Only 2 minutes later, Francis Bouillon would get his first of the season as he receives a pass from Ryder and just buries the pack into the Florida net. 4-0 at the end of 2.
      • Montreal: 13 Shots On Goal
      • Florida: 5 Shots On Goal
  • Third Period
    • As the Canadiens would keep up the pressure on the Panthers, it would be Tomas Kopecky at the 12 minute mark who would bring the momentum down, as he finds the puck right in front of the net and beats Budaj cutting the lead down to 3. 6 minutes later, Matthias would find the back of the Canadiens net as he snaps one glove side past Budaj, making it 4-2. 2 minutes later, the Canadiens on the powerplay would score as Ryder yet again tips the initial shot from Subban making it 5-2 Canadiens, the game would end as the Habs wrap up their away game adventure.
      • Montreal: 12 Shots On Goal
      • Florida: 5 Shots On Goal
As the Canadiens wrap up their away game adventure, they are now once again sitting at number 1 in the Eastern Conference standings. They face the Ottawa Senators tomorrow night at the Bell Centre.
