20:00: The Canadiens will have 0:47 of ice time on fresh ice. Staal, Cooke, Orpik and Gonchar take the ice.
19:12: The Penguins kill off the Adams' penalty. That was big. A goal there would've given the Canadiens some life.
17:12: Lovejoy gains the offensive zone and rips a wrister that off the mark.
15:10: Mike Rupp rams Marc-Andre Bergeron into the boards in front of the ramp to the Penguins' locker room.
14:37: Godard picks up a puck just inside the blue line and puts another shot on net. That's his fourth shot on net. Geez. Who's been giving his shooting lessons? Dupuis?
13:15: Staal slides a cross ice pass to Gonchar on the right wing. Gonchar steps up and hammers a one-timer that hits off the side of the net.
12:43: And the Canadiens get back into this game. Metropolit distributes the puck to Sergei Kostitsyn on the right wing. Kostitsyn dishes the puck to Pacioretty who is trailing. A shooting lane opens up and Pacioretty rips a rather ordinary wrist shot what beats Fleury on the glove side. That's a bad goal for Fleury to give up. He wasn't even screeened. A few fans even boo. We can't blame them. That makes things a bit more interesting. Kostitsyn and Metropolit get assists. Penguins 3-1.
12:11: Rupp mashes Kostitsyn into the boards in front of the Canadiens' bench..
11:36: Cooke steals a puck off Hamrlik just indside the Candiens' blue line. He has a chane at a bit of breakaway but Hamrlik trips him up. That's two minutes. Wonderful effort by Cooke to create that chance. Crosby, Malkin, Guerin, Gonchar and Eaton take the ice.
10:31: Gonchar gets the puck at the top of the slo and tees up a slapper. It gets blocked in the slot. Gonchar gets his rebound back and sneaks another shot through traffic. Price fights it off.
10:08: Crosby and Malkin each have a chance down low off a rebound but can't get it by Price.
9:55: Plekanec pushes the puck up the left wing, goes behind the net, comes around the other side and dishes a feed to O'Byrne in the slot. O'Byrne takes the puck chooses his shot and rips a wrister to the far side. Fleury is able to stretch oout and make a marvelous glove save. Fans offer "FLERRRR-EEEE! FLERRR-EEEE!" chants. That was pretty big. A shorthanded goal there give the Habs all the momentum.
9:36: Hamrlik's penalty is killed. The Penguins had a few decent chances there. The Canadiens really needed that kill.
8:48: Cooke gets a chance down low and stabs at a feed in the slot. Price is in perfect positiion and fights it off with his chest.
8:04: Malkin tosses a wrister at the cage from the left wing. Price kicks it out. THat was the Penguins' 30th shot on net.
7:28: Rupp takes a pass on the right wing and tosses a shot on net which is off the mark.
7:14: Pacioretty takes a tumble in front of the Penguins' bench and looses his stick. Rupp absolutely ran him over after he dumped the puck down into the Pengins' zone. He goes to the bench in some discomfort.
6:38: "Gunner" Eric Godard takes a feed in the slot and rips a wrister which gets deflected wide.
6:30: Crosby sets up Godard down low again but his shot is deflected and misses the mark. His teammates are trying to get him a goal badly.
3:54: Crosby makes a marvelous move on Bergeron to gain the offensive zone and has a fairly clean shot. He instead opts to dish a pass to Guerion on the left wing. Guerin's not ready for the pass and they loose possession. Argh. SHOOOOOT!
3:44: "Cotton-Eyed Joe" is busted out:
2:22: Desharnais gets a chance down low but can't direct the puck by Fleury.
