Halak gets hook after another PP goal

The Penguins scored a power-play goal for the fourth time in as many opportunities – an unbelievable statistic, when you consider the Washington Capitals’ NHL-best unit went 1-for-31 against Montreal.
Sidney Crosby slid a perfect pass from the right-wing boards to Alex Goligoski, who went back-door to beat goalie Jaroslav Halak and give the Penguins a 5-2 lead over the Canadiens at 2:59 of the third period.
Brian Gionta’s delay-of-game penalty set the stage.
The Habs had enough, and pulled the previously red-hot Halak at the 14:42 mark in favor of former first-round pick Carey Price to round cheers. Price got his first-ever NHL victory at Mellon Arena, a 3-2 decision against the Penguins on Oct. 10, 2007.
He is 4-4 all-time, including 0-2 this year, against the Penguins.
