It took 41 minutes, 16 seconds for either team to score in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series at Bell Centre.

Tonight, before you could blink, the Canadiens and Penguins scored within a span of 1:03 of each other.

Then, the Penguins tallied again.

Center Tom Pyatt gave Montreal a 1-0 lead at 2:34 on a wrister from the left half-boards, his first point of the playoffs. Winger Max Talbot answered with an unassisted goal, his second of the playoffs, a backhander on a two-on-one breakaway with Evgeni Malkin to tie it at 1-1 at 3:27.

That play was sparked when Ruslan Fedotenko sprawled out to poke the puck away from rookie defenseman PK Subban at the Canadiens’ blue line.

Chris Kunitz gave the Penguins a 2-1 lead on a power-play goal, his third of the playoffs. Kunitz shot it from the slot after a behind-the-net feed from Sidney Crosby, who increased his playoffs scoring lead to 17 points.
