Already up two goals, the Hurricanes get two good chances less than a minute into the second to go up three but Scott Clemmensen uses his pads to first stop Brandon Sutter and then the follow up on Jussi Jokinen.
Stephen Weiss puts his soccer skills to good use as he collects his own rebound with his own foot, kicks it to his stick and puts the puck past Cam Ward to bring the Panthers to within one, 2-1, 3:58 into the second.
Getting the puck just outside the Panthers blueline, the Canadiens' Travis Moen is knocked out by Dmitry Kulikov. The hit is so big, it nexts out fellow blueliner Alexander Sulzer on the play with 4:42 left in the second.
Knotted at one midway through the second, Atlanta has a golden opportunity to take the lead. Following a turnover in the Panthers zone, Blake Wheeler drops the puck back to Ron Hainsey but Tomas Vokoun flashes some leather to deny the blueliner.
After Mike Santorelli blocks a point shot, Michal Repik and Bill Thomas work their way down the ice on a two-on-one where Thomas one-times the Repik pass into the back of the net for the first goal of the game 15:03 into the first period.
Looking to get the puck out of the zone while Capitals defenseman John Carlson tries to keep it in, forward Steve Bernier gets two big hits on the blueliner in 11 seconds of time during a shift 6:31 into the second.
Down a goal with less than four minutes to play in the game and on a two-man advantage, David Booth backhands in a rebound to knot it at two. He pays the price for scoring by getting hit in the back by Brooks Laich.
