The two men beat goaltender Antoine Coulombe to give Team B the victory at the expense of Team A. Pitlick played the Quebecer a few tricks before slipping the puck behind him. Then, Dach came forward to fire a sharp shot on which Coulombe saw nothing but fire.
Among the winners, Pitlick and Dach played in the first trio completed by Emil Heineman on the right. The first pair of defensemen was Kaiden Guhle and David Savard, while Jake Allen and Philippe Desrosiers defended the net.
In the opposing camp, Cole Caufield played to the left of Filip Mesar and Mike Hoffman. In back, Mike Matheson skated alongside Justin Barron. Cayden Primeau was the team’s other goaltender.
The Habs will hold an intrasquad game at the Bell Center on Sunday afternoon, before starting the preseason schedule by hosting the New Jersey Devils the next day.
