Liveblog: San Jose tops Canadiens 5-2

The second period decided the game.

Less than a minute in, Joe Pavelski’s shot changed direction off a CH defender and past Carey Price to give San Jose a 2-1 lead. Seven minutes later, during a power play, Tomas Hertl tucked the puck past Price on the short side.

Shea Weber scored on a Canadiens power play 10:37 into the middle period to revive CH hopes. But not three minutes later, Logan Couture scored his second of the game on a power play.

The home team had 20 SoG during the second period.

The game began with two goals in 15 seconds: Couture had a wide-open net to Price’s right to open the scoring. It took 15 seconds for Arthur Lehkonen to set up Jonathan Drouin for the tying goal, blowing a laser past Martin Jones.

Joe Thornton scored an empty-netter to complete another futile visit to San Jose.

Shots were 35-30 for the home team.

    My brothers from other mothers came through again… live IIHF streams. Decent ones too. Eff TSN and rest of corporate penny pinching sleezeballs

    Drake’s music is drek.
    But it’s what younger people like these days.

  3. Timo says:

    How can people call Drake’s “music” music. Is Drake new Nickleback? My god he sucks so bad.

    CAN-CZE tomorrow… should be a good game. I hope Mantha’s return will spark the offense. Microfracture boy would need to pull another one off his ugly face. It’s funny how he is a lot more bearable playing and scoring for team Canada than when he was a Sens. NEver heard of the guy who scored with 0.4 to tie the game… good thing he was on the ice, I guess.

  5. Timo says:

    How long is the layoff for the Blue-Bruins? Hasn’t been like a week already? Sheesh… do they want to stretch the series into July?

  6. Timo says:

    Sens hired DJ Smith from the Laffs. Ca sens la coupe?!

  7. Timo says:

    Wow… why does Canada always make it so hard against the Swiss? And once again, the Microfracture boy came through for them – 2 goals, including the game winner in OT.

    That was dra-ma-tic.

    Can Microfracture boy parler francais?

    St. Louis was dead last in NHL standings at beginning of January.
    Now, they’re in the Stanley Cup Final.
    Why couldn’t the Habs do likewise? After all, they were nowhere close to the bottom of the league this year.
    Maybe the two organizations have different priorities.

    • Timo says:

      Well… clearly Blues aren’t nearly as transparent as Habs. And attitude? I don’t know. I found that Habs had a much better attitude… not to mention d’chez nous.

  9. Timo says:

    Mantha is suspend for the quarter final game against Switzerland. Could hurt. Swiss are no pushovers and I don’t think Canada will have an easy time. Mantha has been having a great tournament so far so… we’ll see.

    Go Canada!!! Go Davie D!

    W00t!!!! New page and I was FIRST!!!!

  11. Timo says:

    I don’t care if he has attitude problems or if he is another Louis Leblanc – he is d’chez nous and it’s tout c’est qui compte.

    Even Oilers (OILERS) do the right thing once in a while – https://edmontonjournal.com/sports/hockey/nhl/cult-of-hockey/edmonton-oilers-do-right-thing-and-axe-duane-sutter-head-of-pro-scouting

    Yet, Timmons or whatshisname is still drafting midgets or large overgrown slowpokes neither suited for today’s NHL. For the past what… 15 years?
