First-period notes
Dan Craig's ice crew is doing a yeoman-like job scraping and flooding the ice during the break.

And, it appears that Craig's ministrations are paying off.

Calgary's Rene Bourque said during the intermission that the ice wasn't too bad, "about what you could expect for a night like this," he said on CBC. Although he did say that there was a bad spot to the side of the Montreal net.

Montreal's Tomas Plekanec led Montreal with three shots and Cammalleri had two. Hal Gill led Montreal in ice time, playing 7:57 despite spending two minutes in the penalty box for tripping.

Calgary might have had a record 19 shots, but only three players managed more than one. As mentioned, Bourque had six and Tom Kostopoulos and Alex Tanguay each managed two shots. Nine other players had single shots. Jay Bouwmeester led Calgary in ice time, playing 7:56.

I might have blacked out. I was pretty pumped.
