If the Montreal Canadiens are to get back in their series with the Philadelphia Flyers in Thursday night's Game 3, they're going to have to make life difficult for goaltender Michael Leighton, who has shut out the Habs in two straight games.
So far in the series, the Canadiens have not been going to the Flyer net with any sustained conviction. They have been firing at Leighton from angles offered them, usually with the second forward setting up in the high slot. Leighton has not had to concern himself very often with the options traffic brings, as Montreal has been making it too easy for the Flyer defense to nullify them.
Additionally, by not charging to the net or crease area with speed or conviction, the Canadiens are not bringing with that effort the penalty calls it sometimes entails. The Montreal power play is a feared weapon that so far has been countered by Philly, but Montreal has yet to enjoy a four on three man advantage.
