Habs storm back from 3-0 deficit, crush Sens 7-4 (update)

Update:┬áThe Montreal Canadiens sure turned this game around. They didn’t just come back from a 3-0 deficit; they stormed back to a 7-3 lead before giving up a 7-4 goal. That ended up being the final score as Max Pacioretty enjoyed an impressive night (hat trick, two assists).

***

Less than six minutes into Friday’s game, the Ottawa Senators stormed out to what seemed like a commanding 3-0 lead. Instead, they didn’t even bring that edge into the first intermission, as the Montreal Canadiens made it 3-3 a little more than 10 minutes of game time later.

Senators forward Zack Smith opened the scoring 2:28 into the first period:

Ales Hemsky made it 2-2 a little more than a minute later. This one carries some controversy as P.K. Subban accidentally deflected in, leaving him at least briefly in the doghouse.

Smith scored again at the 5:50 mark:

The Canadiens didn’t just roll over. Andrei Markov gave them a spark with a 3-1 goal 7:22 into the first period:

Less than two minutes later, Mike Weaver scored his first goal of the season to make it 3-2.

Max Pacioretty tied it up with 4:08 remaining in the first period, capping a six-goal period.

We’ll see how the two teams react to this unusual start. The Canadiens just took their first lead of the night as Lars Eller made it 4-3 in the second period.

    Wasn’t it 4-4 at one point?

      No, it was 3-0, 3-3, 4-3, 5-3, 6-3, 7-3, at which point the Sens comeback began … and ended.

    With Parros in the lineup, magically, that punk Neil disappeared.

    Oh, I guess I saw the puck go in the net with the score 4-3 Mtl and just assumed the officials doing the game 3 weeks ago we’re not doing this one. Guess I was wrong. Thanks nothanks for clearing that up.
