Watch: Galchenyuk Turnover Leads to Foligno Penalty Shot and Goal

It's been a wild one in Buffalo.

Alex Galchenyuk handed the puck to Marcus Foligno late in the second period at the First Niagara Center in Buffalo and a bit of chaos ensued. First Galchenyuk hooked Foligno, who was able to get a shot off and missed. Then Philip Varone crashed the net hard looking for some garbage and a hearty scrum ensued (see vid above).

In the end, Foligno was awarded the penalty shot and he came down and fooled Habs goalie Mike Condon for his second goal of the night:

But Galchenyuk didn't lose heart. He came down and buried a power play goal late in the period to pull Montreal within one. It was his second of the night and 14th of the season. It should be a fun third period.
