Canadiens too much for Lightning
The Habs had gone 0 for 23 on the power play to end the regular season and were 0 Los Angeles Adidas Green for 2 in Game 1. They couldn score in the first period Friday during a double minor for high sticking to Tampa star Steven Stamkos (though the Habs were called for too many men during that stretch). Subban off the left shoulder of Tampa goaltender Anders Lindback to give the Canadiens the lead in a game that had been pretty evenly played up to Adidas Los Angeles Camo White
Which had the longer odds for the Montreal Canadiens: scoring on the power play or a pair of goals by Habs forward Rene Bourque?
Bourque, who had just nine goals in 63 pretty much indifferent regular season games, has had some jump in this series and looks like a new man.
It might have been a game changer.
He bulled his way between Tampa defencemen Eric Brewer and Sami Salo, shouldering his way by the latter, before avoided a Lindback pokecheck, regaining control of the puck and slipping it just inside the left post at 10:35 of the second to make it 2 0.
the third. Bourque added his second of the night on Gudlevskis.
Lindback got the hook and was replaced by Kristers Gudlevskis, the Latvian goaltender who excelled in a loss to Canada at the Olympics, after Montreal Brendan Gallagher made it 3 0 at 11:46 of Adidas Neo Jog
before and every team deals with it. You look across at Montreal, they probably saying the same thing about not having (Alex) Galchenyuk. Everybody goes through this. had a hole in our lineup all year and other guys have stepped up and played well, Stamkos said. is an unbelievable player, we seen what he can do this year, but it will just give other guys an opportunity to step up and hopefully rise to the occasion.
Now, heading to Montreal, they have to face the fact they played much better Friday night and wound up having the Canadiens run away from them in the second half of Game 2.
still have to make the plays that you did for the first 82 games of the year. You can be so nervous to make a mistake that you just throwing pucks off the glass and giving the puck right back to them. We just have to be more composed, said Stamkos. think that a word we probably used the last couple of days. Be confident in your abiities. Be confident in the way we won games throughout the course of this year. That been a trait of our team is having that puck and possessing it and being confident making plays. Lightning might have been able to tell themselves they couldn have played much worse then they did in Game 1 and still had a chance to win it in overtime.
Now the Habs are fully in control of this series, which has seen the Lightning without star goaltender Ben Bishop he injured his left elbow with three games to go in the regular season and leading regular season scorer Ondrej Palat, who was hurt in Game 1 and couldn play Friday.
The Lightning talked before Game 2 about playing with more composure they gave the puck away and were outshot 44 25 in Game 1 which they lost in overtime and they did just that.
been a reason why we had a lot of success this year, because we gone through that adversity, we had key guys out of the lineup and it hasn been all together, it been spaced out. We dealt with that situation before and we have to deal with it again. the other end of the ice, Price, who gave up four goals on 14 shots in Game 1, looked strong. He made his save of the game when the Canadiens needed it, up 2 0 in the latter stage of the second period, moving left to stop a shot from the edge of his porch by Tampa Cedric Paquette.
Both have been infrequent lately, but because the Canadiens got both Friday night in a 4 1 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning, they now hold a 2 0 lead in their best of seven Atlantic Division semifinal series. They head back to Montreal for Game 3 Sunday and Game 4 Tuesday.
TAMPA It would have been a toss up.
Teddy Purcell spoiled the shutout bid by Montreal goatender Carey Price with two minutes left in the third.
got a lot of guys that can come in. You just feel for Palat because you missing a guy that led our team in scoring and he been a big part of special teams, he plays both power play and penalty kill, said Lightning coach Jon Cooper. it a big hole for us, but we dealt with this stuff Adidas Primeknit Grey
