The Montreal Canadiens power play allowed three shorthanded goals to Ottawa.

With P.K. Subban out of the lineup the Canadiens used Tomas Plekanec on the point and the strategy didn't work so well. "We made a lot of mistakes," Plekanec said.

I’ve played (on the point) before and I was comfortable there," Plekanec said. "That’s not why they scored three short-handed goals. They didn’t score three short-handed goals because we had four forwards; they scored because we made mistakes."
