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."
