MONTREAL (AP) Tampa Bay captain Steven Stamkos ended his scoring drought and the Lightning's power-play came to life with four goals - at the expense of the reeling Montreal Canadiens.
Stamkos scored his first goal of the playoffs and Tampa Bay beat Montreal 6-2 on Sunday night to take a 2-0 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinal series.
"I don't know if it was more relief that he scored or the power play scored, so it was kind of the whole compilation of Alka Seltzer," Lightning coach Jon Cooper said.
