For the second game in a row, Ottawa failed to get a shot for the first nine minutes of the game. Fans, including PGA golfer Brad Fritsch were urging a more aggressive approach.
Ottawa's slow start, which included two failed power-plays, caught up with them after Montreal scored on a bit of a wacky goal from Brendan Gallagher.
The first period goal from Gallagher marked the first time Montreal scored first, and the first time they scored in the first period.
In the second period, Ottawa came out much stronger. They thought they scored but the referee blew his whistle early believing Carey Price had corralled a shot.
Fans then spent several minutes chastising the referees for that whistle
Montreal continued to lead 1-0 as the third period began. Some wondered if it would be Ottawa's final period of the season.
Ottawa's Cinderella story came to an end thanks to a stalwart 43-save shutout from Price. The Habs move on to the second round and the Sens' season is over.
