1:56 -- Lucic sent off for holding. Habs again cannot connect on the advantage.

8:33 -- Robert Lang falls to the ice in obvious pain, seeming to favor his left knee. Lang was attempting to skate toward the neutral zone, out of the offensive end, and falls down with Yelle in pursuit. He needs assistance from teammates to get back on his feet and into the dressing room.

10:50 -- Chara's crunching hit on Matt D'Agostini drops the winger to the ice, holding his head. Dazed, he struggles to feet and makes way to bench, with no stop in play. After brief stay on bench, joins Lang in dressing room, then returns with about seven minutes left in the period.

11:32. -- Thomas flashes sharp pad save on a Tomas Plekanec slapper from slot.

17:28 -- Guillaume Latendresse crashes in corner to Price's left, after collision with Kobasew. Heads to dressing room.

With 56.5 seconds to go, Savard takes puck from Andrei Kostitsyn along wall at center ice and fires in empty-net goal for 3-1 final.

With 4.9 seconds to go, Ryan O'Byrne whistled off for minor penalty.
