(13:19 - 2nd)
MTL: C. Price (L)
PIT: T. Vokoun , M. Fleury (W)
Earlier tonight in Pittsburgh, the Penguins were looking for win number 13 in a row in a game against the Montreal Canadiens. 4 minutes in, Ryders shot from the left wing went off the post. The shots in the first were 10-5 Montreal in a scoreless game. 3:30 into the second, Plekanec centred the puck to Ryder and he tipped the puck off the post. Thenshortly after that with the Habs on a powerplay, Plekanec played the puck to Markov and he was robbed by the pad of Fleury. At the 13 minute mark of the period, Crosby came up the right wing and fired a shot past Price to make it 1-0. Late in the period, Gionta pushed Kennody into Fleury. Fleury was down and left the game with a upper body injury. The shots in the second were 15-7 Montreal.
Fleury made 25 saves before receiving an injury. So with Fleury out, former Hab draft pick, Tomas Vokoun stood in. He made 12 saves in the third as the Penguins shut out the Habs and win 1-0 for their 13th straight win. "We've got to take the positive out of it," Price (who made 24 saves) said. "We keep playing the way we are, we're not going to lose that many games like that, so I think we've just got to stick to it." The Habs next game will be tomorrow night against the Boston Bruins.
