Canadiens in the playoffs: Habs sweep Lightning
The Habs are moving on to round two of the NHL playoffs after beating the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-3 Tuesday
The Montreal Canadiens did it. They are moving on to round two of the NHL playoffs after beating the Tampa Bay Lightning 4-3 Tuesday.
Max Pacioretty picked the perfect time to end his first round scoring drought by netting the winner with 43 seconds to go in the third period.
The Habs' sweep of the first round was a total team effort — only two players, Francis Bouillon and Andrei Markov, didn't make it on to the score sheet.
