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

Apr 4, 2014, 8:24 PM EST

Update: The 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.
