The fourth line produced the opening goal as Weise won a battle behind the net and found Cousins moving toward the crease. Cousins showed patience as he waited for Fleury to make his move before slipping the puck under the goaltender’s outstretched right leg.

Defenceman Brett Kulak notched his first goal late in the period. Max Domi won a battle along the boards to set up Kulak’s shot from the left point. Joel Armia didn’t earn a mention on the scoresheet, but the Finn did his part by screening Fleury.

Jonathan Marchessault scored his 16th goal midway through the period on a good feed from Reilly Smith while Paul Stastny scored his 14th off a scramble in front of the net.
