Montreal's defense was awful, and the team continued to take penalties and put Price in bad situations. Tampa Bay went 4-for-8 on the man advantage in the game.

There was some controversy about the game-winning goal as it might have gone off a Canadiens skater's glove before the puck found Weise in the offensive zone, in which case, the play should have been stopped. It will be interesting to see if anything new comes out regarding the final play, but nonetheless, Montreal has a, 3-0, series lead.

Insight: He had 19 goals and 22 assists, and is just 22-years-old. Gallagher should continue to improve, as he plays on Montreal's top line. His current 14th round value, could turn into a steal of a pick.
