The Montreal Canadiens are coming home after cinching a 2-0 series lead with an exhilarating Friday night match.

David Desharnais scored a power-play goal, Rene Bourque had two and Brendan Gallagher another.

It was a second straight strong performance coupled with the dominance of Carey Price added up to a 4-1 victory over the Lightning on Friday night at Tampa Bay Times Forum and a two games to none stranglehold on the Atlantic Division semifinals.
