Instead, the Penguins got a couple of breaks to turn the game Converse Black White High Tops into a terse struggle the rest of the way.
They won Game 7 of their Eastern Conference semifinal 5 2 over the Pittsburgh Penguins, the defending Stanley Cup champions who were overwhelmed by the Habs, the moment and by their expectations.
Even better was Johnson's next save on the rebound on a spinning Brian Gionta, his backhander snuffed by one of Johnson's flailing limbs.

But Halak made certain they would not get that crucial third goal, the one that could have been the tipping point of the game.
They have knocked out the game's two best individual talents in Alex Ovechkin and Crosby. They did away with the reigning Presidents Trophy winners and the defending Stanley Cup champions.
Habs overwhelm Penguins
Indeed, despite coming back from a 3 2 deficit in last year's final and winning Game 7 and the Stanley Cup against the Detroit Red Wings, the Penguins looked to be the more nervous team as Converse Chuck 2 White

During a holding penalty to Montreal's Hal Gill shortly after, Halak made what might be his most significant stop of this unexpected ride, getting a pad on a shot by Pittsburgh's Evgeni Malkin on a bang bang play that saw Malkin get the puck in the slot off a deflected shot.
Bylsma pulled Marc Andre Fleury after he had given up those four goals on just 13 shots and it is always interesting to see which way a game goes at that moment. Brent Johnson got down from his stool in the gate to the Penguins dressing room, skated to the bench and got his stick.
the Canadiens galloped to their 4 0 lead, the last goal a short handed score by Montreal's Travis Moen as he went around a completely disinterested Sergei Gonchar.
and the shot hit Halak.
In the hours before the game, Penguins coach Dan Bylsma had pulled aside the curtain that usually shrouds what he is thinking, admitting that, when it came to playing in Game 7s, "if experience helps, my stomach doesn't feel it right now."
Montreal goaltender Jaroslav Halak? You won't see a better bit of goaltending in these playoffs than the saves he made during two Penguins power plays in the opening six minutes of the third, the Canadiens up 4 2, but the unmistakable sense in the decrepit Igloo that the next goal would decide the game.
The Canadiens' best players were better than Pittsburgh's.
Crosby had a miserable night, opening the door for an early Montreal lead on a boarding penalty 10 seconds into the game. He wound up on the ice for three of the Canadiens' goals.
Now it is starting to smell like 1993, when the powerful Penguins were eliminated in seven games by the New York Islanders in seven games and the path in the East opened up for the Canadiens to win their 24th Stanley Cup.
In a 4 0 game, it seemed almost insignificant at the time, but how much more would the temperature dropped in the old Igloo if Gionta's shot had found the back of the Pittsburgh net?
