I think a better example of momentum being triggered would be Lapierre's shorthanded goal. Unfortunately it was at the end of the period, so the Habs couldn't really do anything with that momentum.
Agreed. It was more of a case of, 'ok, it's 3-0, we've accomplished what we've set out to do' I can't see there's criticism of how play developed thru the 1st.
Then what happened is what always happens. There's ebb and flow to every game and it's hardly rare that the team down 3 is hungrier than the team up 3. It's happened to far better teams than this one.
