The Montreal Canadiens defence showed more engagement in Game 2

The Montreal Canadiens need to fix their coverage in defensive zone faceoffs. That’s obvious. The Vegas Golden Knights arguably got some lucky bounces off of those in the first two games. It’s probable that the puck doesn’t favour them as much in the next games in those situations.

Still, the Habs need to get on the Knights defencemen quicker off draws to prevent clean point shots and they have to absorb those shots as they are fired — not deflect them past their goalie. That, or clear his sightline so that he can do the work himself.
