I’m pleasantly surprised. Seems as though the Canadiens are playing a near perfect game so far vs the Carolina Hurricanes.
An important stat, in my mind, that sticks out right away is that Montreal has only picked up 2 penalties. (To Carolina’s 1)
They were so heavily penalized in past games that they would sometimes kill whatever momentum they were building.
Interesting note, Carey Price got an assist on the first goal (Cammalleri scoring, Plekanec with the other assist). While they seemed to need to find the offense just a little while back, who knew it would come from Price.
Scott Gomez and Max Pacioretty and leading the team with 4 shots a piece…. 32 shots after 2!! Limiting Carolina to 12 shots.
That’s my 1 concern…. Price is usually hot when he faces tons of shots…. but with only 12 shots, he may be a little cold.
On to the 3rd!
