First Period Analysis
A fast start again for the Habs as Tomas Tatar gets the Habs on the board in the first minute of the game. Habs gave up way too many turnovers which led to a number of odd-man chances for the Rangers.
Very Physical play. The Habs have to be careful and not be stupid and let the Rangers tie this game up. Habs are taking way too many penalties in the game, This will come back to bite them in the third period.
Too Many Penalties+Too Many Men= 2 points wasted. No defense, too many penalties and just from a Habs perspective painful to watch.
