But Montreal didn’t let up then.
P.K. Subban scored his first road goal in 28 games as he lost his balance. Andrei Markov was credited with the assist to Subban’s 3rd goal of the season.
Then, Max Pacioretty netted his 18th goal of the season courtesy of Nathan Beaulieu. Pacioretty’s goal gave the Canadiens a 2-1 lead midway through the second period.
However, they wouldn’t keep that lead for long. Patrick Berglund slid the puck to Colton Parayko at the point, who ripped it towards the net. On its way, the puck got a piece of Paul Stastny before it ended up behind the goaltender.
Patrick Berglund swung the puck behind the Canadiens net before seeing Ty Rattie open in front of the net. His pass hit the stick of David Backes, but it found its way to Rattie. Ty ‘s shot trickled in for his second goal of the season (scoring in two consecutive games).
