The Montreal Canadiens scored the only goal of the second period, and as a result, they're now tied with the Boston Bruins 2-2 after two periods. The Bruins are still the better team in terms of hits and faceoffs, but their fortunes have changed simply through one bad giveaway. All things considered, the 2-2 score seems to be a fair representation of what's gone on in the game, and it sets up a potentially great third period.
Tomas Plekanec was the man who scored the goal, and though the way he scored it was impressive, the fact that he had the opportunity in the first place was an absolute gift. On a Bruins power play, Patrice Bergeron and Andrew Ference had a miscommunication and gave the puck away to Plekanec, who rocketed towards Tim Thomas, uncontested. He faked to Thomas's glove side, then hit a great precise forehand shot to the blocker side, off the inside of the post and into the net for the goal.
It's anyone's game at this point, though due to the home ice advantage and their advantage on faceoffs, the ice is tilting slightly towards Boston.
