Video: Senators’ Lehner robs Habs’ Briere with right pad

Hard hits, fast pace, goals and some beautiful saves. That could best describe the opening minutes of the Montreal Canadiens-Ottawa Senators game.

Daniel Brière, who opened the scoring 38 seconds into the game, had a great chance to put the the Habs back in the lead, but didn’t raise his shot on a point-blank opportunity, with Senators goalie Robin Lehner making a spectacular right pad stop when it looked like Montreal’s forward had a wide open net.

The Senators, despite being down a goal early and under siege for lengths of time in the first period, answered back quickly with a goal from Jason Spezza. The goal came on Ottawa’s first shot of the game on Carey Price, who is making his first start for Montreal since the Olympics.
