Last night in Montreal, the Habs began a home and home series against the Senators. The Habs got on the board first with a rush down the right wing by Eric Cole, as he fired a shot and it was stopped but he got his own rebound. After the goal, Cole skated by the ref and gave him a high five. 30 seconds later, Greening would score to tie the game at 1-1. Then 24 seconds into the third, Subbans point shot was tipped in by Desharnais to give the Habs a 2-1 lead. Karlesson would later tie the game. This game would go to a shootout. Pacioretty was up first and he was stopped by Ben "The BIG Man" Bishop. Michalek was up next and Price dove to poke the puck away. So Desharnais was next to give the Habs the lead, and he did with a backhand goal. Next for the Sens was Spezza and he was stopped.
So Markov had a chance to win it in his first home game since 2010, but he was stopped. Then it was up to Alfredsson to score and he was a perfect 5 for 5. But Price got the better of him,as he made the save and the Habs win 3-2. "That was hilarious," Price said about Eric Coles high five. "I didn't laugh for long because they scored right after, but I think the ref was laughing, too."
