Canadiens Vs. Penguins Score Update: Montreal Has A 4-2 Lead Heading Into The Final Period

It they want to win their fifth game in a row, the Pittsburgh Penguins will have to make up a two-goal deficit in the final period against the Montreal Canadiens. The Habs have scored two goals on Marc-Andre Fleury in each of the first two periods in front of consecutive sellout no. 232 at Consol Energy Center.

Playing in just his second game back, Kris Letang got to work quickly and scored his fourth goal of the season to even it at 1-1 in the first period. Letang took a nice feed from Pascal Dupuis and beat Carey Price for the goal. After leading the Pens in ice time last night at Madison Square Garden, it was a welcome sight to see Letang get back on the board. The Pens added their second goal when Dustin Jeffrey scored his first of the year on a shorthanded play from Zbynek Michalek. But Montreal responded right back, as Max Pacioretty made it a two-goal game yet again. Despite being outshot by the Pens, the Canadiens have capitalized on their scoring chances for the 4-2 lead.
