Penguins-Canadiens play speedy first period
The Pittsburgh Penguins and Montreal Canadiens didn't waste any time playing the first period of Game 4 on Thursday night at the Bell Centre.

The Penguins left the ice with a 2-1 lead after a period that saw only seven play stoppages -- three for goals. The total clock time from puck drop to final siren was 27 minutes -- and that includes a three-minute video review, meaning the 20 minutes of playing time took just 24 minutes of real time.
