How They Scored

FIRST PERIOD

1. HABS: Kostopolous backhands a rebound over to Latendresse at the edge of the crease and he puts it in the open side. Habs 1, Sens 0

2. SENS: On the power play, Kuba fires the puck from the left point which Price stops, but the rebound goes in off Foligno, who was parked out in front. Sens 1, Habs 1

3. SENS: Again on the power play, Spezza makes a nice move to get the puck on his backhand by the right post, pull the puck in front and tuck it by Price. Sens 2, Habs 1
