In the first period, Kyle Palmieri tapped Andy Greene’s point shot past Carey Price 6:26 into the game. The lead lasted 24 seconds before Jonathan Drouin beat Keith Kincaid from a bad angle.
The Max Domi and Philip Danault lines played strong games again.
Jesperi Kotkaniemi played 16:41, had two assists and – the astonishing stat – won 10 of 16 faceoffs.
Maybe not so astonishing. The kid gets better every time out, on every facet of his game.
Kenny Agostino scored his first goal in bleu-blanc-rouge and continues to look good playing with the two Finns.
