Two periods done
Calgary leads 3-0 after two periods after Curtis Glencross and Rene Bourque scored second-period goals.

Bourque's goal was his second of the game and 19th of the season. He scored a 5-on-3 goal in the first period with a deft little tap-in.

Almost as impressively, Bourque has nine shots in the first two periods.

Calgary's two goals in the second period came against the run of play as Montreal dominated on the shot clock in the second, out-shooting Calgary 21-11.

That means that Calgary's record of 19 shots, set in the first period, lasted just 20 minutes. Notably, each team set the record while enjoying the wind advantage. After two periods, the teams have combined for 59 shots in two periods with Calgary holding a 30-29 advantage.
Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.

— Chicago Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp on the 2009 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic
