Paul Byron gave the Canadiens a scare during the pregame warmup when he stung number one goalie Carey Price with a shot to the shoulder.
However, it all worked out in the end. Price was OK to play and Byron ended up scoring the game winner in the shootout. "He felt bad, nobody wants to hit their goalie," said Price.
