Another Win On The Road

Continuing their away games, the Canadiens would face the Lightning in Tampa Bay. The Lightning have only won 2 games of their last 10 played.

  • First Period
    • Starting off the first period, the Canadiens would get the majority of the shots on goal within the first 8 minutes of game play, but the score would remain at 0. The other 12 minutes of the period were the Lightning generating a few good offensive opportunities, but neither team could convert, keeping this game a tie heading into the second.
      • Montreal: 7 Shots On Goal
      • Tampa Bay: 10 Shots On Goal
  • Second Period
    • Just 5 and a half minutes into the second, Steven Stamkos would snap one right past Carey Price, through traffic putting the Lighting up by a goal. Only 2 minutes later, Tomas Plekanec receives a pass right in fron of the net and just takes a quick snap shot tying this game at 1 a piece. Only a minute later, Sami Salo would snap one from the point as it beats Price through a crowd. 4 minutes later, the Lightning would score again, but this time on the powerplay as Ryan Malone would tip in a shot from Stamkos in front of the net. 3-1 Lightning at the end of 2.
      • Montreal: 9 Shots On Goal
      • Tampa Bay: 11 Shots On Goal
  • Third Period
    • 4 minutes into the third, the Canadiens would score on the powerplay. It was an unusual goal as there was a pile of players lying around in the Lightning net, but the puck somehow found its way to the back of the net, cutting the lead down to 1. Another 4 minutes later, Alexei Emelin would take a slap shot from the point, beating traffic and beating Desjardins tying this game at 3. 5 minutes later, Brendan Gallagher would score one from the side of the net as the net came off, but after the puck had gone into the net. The period would end, as the Canadiens come back in the third period and score 3 goals to win the game 4-3.
      • Montreal: 13 Shots On Goal
      • Tampa Bay: 2 Shots On Goal
With a win in Tampa last night, the Canadiens now head to Florida to play the Panthers today at 7. This will be the last of the Canadiens away game adventure.
