I'm absolutely shocked... SHOCKED!... to hear of selective non-enforcement of goaltender interference in this game. In Montreal. Oh, and in related news, water is wet.

Brayden Point had 3 shots and 1 blocked shot in 17:11 of ice time. That's a SIZABLE chunk of ice time for a rookie in a tight game on the road, which speaks volumes about the coaching staff's faith in young Mr. Point.
