Quick passes dizzied the shorthanded Canadiens, who were rushing in their own zone and not able to get a stick on the puck. Logan Couture's shot ricocheted off Kane's leg and in at 19:05.
A controversial tripping contact Jeff Petry led to Kane's second power-play goal at 4:54 of the second. After Carey Price failed to control a magnificent Brent Burns shot, Tomas Hertl poked the loose puck through the crease to Kane for his 6th.
"We'll have to take a look at the video," stated Jonathan Drouin of the penalty kill. "Look at the first one tonight, an overall breakdown. The puck was going left and right, and it ends with an empty-netter for Kane. It's difficult to repair that.
"We like our PK, however sometimes it's a 15 or 20 seconds at the end where we begin to burn out. That might be the difference right there."
San Jose included another 2 objectives to take a 4-1 lead.
An unselfish Hertl passed to an open Kevin Labanc in the crease instead of shooting at 8:08 of the 2nd period. Hertl had three assists on the night.
