Tying one on to the goal of the night, Brian Gionta would get another mini-breakaway on Michael Leighton in the third period, but this time Leighton wouldn’t make the same mistake twice.
Michael Leighton was a busy guy last night facing 38 shots on goal and stopping 33 of them. For Montreal, this is the first game they’ve won in these playoffs when they’ve outshot their opponent. We’re sure that Philadelphia wouldn’t like to see this become a habit but if Montreal can get their offensive game going more like they did last night, this series might get a lot more exciting.
