Bruins vs. Canadiens: Bruins Show Some Fight, Tied 1-1

Well, last period was the story of penalties for the Habs, and this time around, the Bruins had their fair share, especially at the beginning of the period. Two quick penalties from the Bruins resulted in a 5-on-3 for the Habs less than five minutes in. The Bruins were able to kill those off, but the Canadiens eventually found a way through Tim Thomas.

10:27 into the period, Erik Cole deflected a shot from Jaroslav Spacek and put it over the shoulder of Thomas, tying the game at one a piece. Montreal also managed to put up 18 shots that period, while holding the Bruins to just nine.

But the story of the period came when Brad Marchand and P.K. Subban attempted twice to get into a fight, and it wasn't until the third time that they had success. They were put into the box for the first time for "holding" followed by a "delay of game." The third time however, no ref tried to stop it. Both men went away for fighting, and the third period ended.

The shots after two periods are 24 for the Habs and 19 for the Bruins.
