The Montreal Canadiens Sweep The Tampa Bay Lightning

from Mike Boone of Hockey Inside/Out,

Game Four exemplified what the Canadiens were able to accomplish all through their series against the Lightning.

• They got goals from each of their four lines.

• Outside of a brief letdown in the early part of the third period, the Canadiens got airtight defence and rock-solid goaltending from Carey Price.

• Unlike the Lightning, the Canadiens didn’t take bad penalties.

• 11 skaters made the scoresheet.

• Steven Stamkos was held to two shots on goal.

• Rene Bourque continued his postseason renaissance with seven shots on goal, plus three that Tampa Bay blocked and three that missed the net. Bourque, who was a healthy scratch for nine games this season – including five in March – had three goals and 22 SoG against the Lightning. His line, with Lars Eller and Brian Gionta, was the Canadiens’ best in the series.
