Liveblog Anaheim blows open close game, beats Canadiens 62

The beat goes on …

Anaheim scored three times in 97 third-period seconds to blow open a close game.

Brandon Montour, Derek Grant (with his second of the game) and Chris Wagner were the scorers who squelched Canadiens’ hopes of a  comeback.

The Canadiens dominated the second period – Anaheim didn’t have a SoG for more than 10 minutes – and got an early goal from Paul Byron. Then Brendan Gallagher scored a power-play goal on the Canadiens’ 26th shot of a middle period in which the Canadiens had a mind-boggling 30 SoG.

When the game began, the Canadiens were down 2-zip inside of four minutes.

Dennis Rasmussen’s redirect opened the scoring and was was followed, two minutes later, by  Grant’s power-play goal. Then 14 minutes in, Antoine Vermette’s shot ticked off Karl Alzner and past Carey Price to make it 3-0.

Shots were 51-45 for the team that can’t win a game.

 

Canadiens take their losing streak to Anaheim.
