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.

    Apparently, it’s snowing in Montreal today.
    MB blames the weather on lack of confidence in the room.

    The Montreal gazette app rivals the Habs for ineptitude. The BS never ends.

    Carey Price & Max Pacioretty to the Oilers for Connor McDavid.

    So this shitshow has generated 50 some comments on Boone’s blog. On HIO the site would have been brought down… or maybe not – i think people are just losing interest and passion now. One can get excited for mediocrity only for so long.

    Maybe Boone and Bergevin can retire together and Boone can write Bergevin’s memoirs.

    I’d like to see Kim Jong-un as the new GM of the team.
    If anything, he’d build the Habs into a nuclear power.

    Will I be out of line if I said that Clod Julien is a moron and just another french speaking dinosaur that Habs had to hire because il est d’chez nous? I mean I get it that Molson still makes profit, but isn’t it better to make profit AND win? WTF is it with this organization that just can’t find proper leadership and management?

      i don’t think the french that these coaches speak is that admirable, it’s only functional for the sake of the french media, i’m guessin’ that as an organization, when you aim for pragmatism, you’re not gonna maximize your opportunities to hire the best candidate for the job…
