After taking 1-0 and 2-1 leads respectively, the latter into the third period, the San Jose Sharks managed to come from behind in the third period to overtake the Canadiens 3-2. Carey Price made his second start in two games, playing an exceptional game against the high-powered Sharks offense; San Jose managed 40 shots on net.
Linemates Brian Gionta and Scott Gomez scored for the Habs, with Gomez adding an assist. The loss drops Montreal into tenth place in the Eastern Conference with a 30-29-6 record with their trailers each holding games-in-hand. This west coast road trip wraps up this weekend with a game Saturday against the Los Angeles Kings and another Sunday against Captain Koivu and the Anaheim Ducks.
