Ok, what now.
Habs play 3 even periods. No crazy shot totals in one direction or the other. They actually out chance the Pens, but no finish. The Pens played a solid game 5 and did what they had to do. But you would have expected a furious storming out of the gates. That never happened. The whole game was played at this even, steady pace.
Opportunism won this one with Pittsburgh managing to solve Halak with 2 screened shots from the point. He was excellent again throughout the game as was Fleury.
Hal Gill may become the next addition to the Habs now just ridiculous list of injuries this season. His leg was sliced in half with everything under the knee laying severed on the ice, while Gill skated away on one leg with a blood spraying stump. Our shot-blocking monster may now be gone and that makes Game 6 all the more daunting.
There's nothing to suggest the Habs can't win at home tomorrow to force a deciding game. Problem is there's also nothing to suggest the Pens can't end it at the Bell Centre either.
