MTL: C. Price (W)
3 minutes into the second, Littles shot from the left wing was blocked by Markov and it redirected right to Antropv and he scored to tie the game. A few minutes later, Kane skated up the left wing and into the slot and dropped it back to Jokinen on the left wing and he took a shot and scored his first goal as a Jet to give the Jets the lead. Late in the second just as Montreals powerplay expires, Kaberles shot misses the net and bounces right back in front, Gallagher takes a wack at it and misses along with Galchenyuk before Eric Cole knocked it in the empty net for his first of the season and the game is tied at 3-3.
5 minutes into the third with the Habs on a powerplay, Markov played the puck to Diaz at the right point and he played it to Plekanec who one timed a shot into the back of the net to make it 4-3 Montreal. That would be your final as the Habs win their 4th straight by the score of 4-3. In the win, Price made 19 saves. In the loss, Pavelec made 22 saves. Montreal scored 2 powerplay goals in this game and they have scored a powerplay goal every game so far thanks to Markov who currently leads the team in points (4 goals & 3 assists).
"I remember back when we played with Kovy (Alex Kovalev) and Marky (Markov) and I think we were first in the league two years in a row," Plekanec said."I feel it's pretty much the same now.
"He has a huge impact on our team, not only on the power play." With the win, Montreal sits in 5th place in the East and are just 1 point back of the fourth place Senators and they will take them on tonight.
