The Canadiens players received 35 penalty minutes on Tuesday. In the 65 minutes of play, they defended short of a man for 11 min 22 s. Despite testing Jake Allen seven times during those massive attacks, the Red Wings failed to score.
«  ;Today [Tuesday] we got tested. It's not easy to defend yourself like that. I'm happy with the battle the guys fought. I tip my hat to them. It's a victory of character.”

David Savard had a lot to say to official Michael Markovic when he returned to the locker room after the second period. A lyrical flight that earned him 10 minutes of bad behavior to start the third period.
“I was not in tune with what he was doing on the rink. There was frustration. ”
Kaiden Guhle found himself in bad shape posture under Michael Rasmussen, of the Red Wings.
Even though he was deprived of one of his pillars on the blue line during those 10 minutes, St-Louis did not hold it against Savard. Even though the coach rather went to his defense.
“ “Savy” plays such a game honest as a hockey player. He kills a lot of penalties, he blocks a lot of shots. He takes care of the team. He's not a dirty guy, so to be given a punishment like that, I kind of understand [his mood swing]. We took care of him for the 10 minutes. The guys did the job.”
