Once again the Montreal Canadiens started the game a little shaky but this time they allowed their opponents to show their lack of discipline instead of putting themselves in a hole. The Flyers managed to give the Canadiens nine powerplays on the night and although Montreal couldn't break through at first when you have that much time on the man advantage it works at some point. Montreal ended up giving the Flyers five powerplays of their own which is still too much but it was an improvement on the game against Toronto. Even though only 38 minutes of the game were played at even strength that's where the game was truly decided. Rene Bourque was on fire all game and it was he who got the scoring started by blitzing around the net and throwing a pass across the crease to Brian GIonta who scored the same goal he's been scoring his entire career. Gionta is a shark around the net and rebounds are blood in the water. After 32 minutes without anymore scoring Lars Eller decided a one goal lead wasn't enough and put a backhand past a sprawling Ray Emery just 12 seconds into the final frame. After that the powerplays for both teams went to work. P.K. Subban and Alex Galchenyuk showed amazing poise and patience to give Brendan Gallagher his second goal of the season a giftwrapped tap in Vincent Lecavalier broke the shutout bid after Francis Bouillon tripped on Brayden Schenn and then Bourque was rewarded after two brilliant passes first from Eller as he was heading off the ice then from Gionta who as Stephan said in the game thread played against type by faking the shot and passing.
