It didn’t take more than a minute for Paul Byron to realize what he needed to do.

The Montreal Canadiens winger scored the first goal of his Stanley Cup Playoff career as part of his team’s 4-3 overtime win in Game 2 of their series with the New York Rangers. It might not have happened if not for one significant adjustment he made following Montreal’s 2-0 loss in Game 1, which also happened to be his first-ever NHL playoff game.

“I knew it right after the game,” he said before Game 2. “I think I put a little too much pressure and energy into what playoffs is about. Sometimes going really fast in every direction isn’t really effective. You have to be in the right spots and just have to channel your energy the right way.”
