Habs Win Game #2 to Tie Series with Sens 1-1

Well, as noted in an earlier blog entry, I didn't watch last night's NHL hockey playoff game between the Ottawa Senators and the Montreal Canadiens, but I have read the morning paper and some of the reports on-line about the game.

The Senators lost last night's game 3-1 to the Montreal Canadiens, evening the playoff series at 1 game apiece. Given the events of Game 1 of the series, in which Lars Eller was seriously injured, the Canadiens seem to have put together a good, relatively composed game, and played harder and wanted the win against the Senators more in this second game. That's also a good thing for Montreal too, since they wouldn't have wanted to go down 2 games to none on their home ice, with the series shifting back to Ottawa for Games 3 and 4.

From what I've read and seen, goaltender Carey Price turned in a solid effort on Friday night against the Senators, and while Craig Anderson was good in goal for the Sens, Price just outdueled him on this game night. That said, this type of let-down on the part of the Senators seems pretty normal based on the team's previous playoff history. Add to the fact that the Habs were playing without Brian Gionta, Max Pacioretty, and Lars Eller, and they must have just done a fabulous job playing the Senators and keeping solid control of the game.

So, the series goes down the highway to Ottawa for Game 3, and the Senators need to find a way to win this one. It wouldn't be a good idea for Ottawa to fall behind 2 games to 1 on their home ice when the series resumes on Sunday night.
