It’s a key Eastern conference showdown on Saturday night in the Sunshine State. The Montreal Canadians start a three game road trip when they take on the surging Lightning. This is the third meeting of the year between the two teams. Each team won the previous match up on their home ice.
The Montreal Canadians officially locked up a playoff spot against the Panthers on Thursday night.
Now that they have that locked up, they just need to continue to play well and keep the momentum going into the playoffs. They come into this game having won three in a row.
They have been on fire in the offensive zone during this winning streak.
In the last three games they have scored a combined 13 goals. In their last game they beat Florida by a score of 6-2. To win this game though it’s going to come down to the defensive zone.
The Lightning have also been scoring a ton of goals as of late, so they need to try and slow that down.
Tampa Bay Lightning
The Tampa Bay Lightning have reached a point in their season where every game is basically a must win.
They come into this game with 85 points which is three points behind Boston who is in the final wild card spot.
The Lightning also come into this game hot having won the last four games.
The Lightning have been on fire in the offensive zone as of late. In their last four games they have scored a total of 18 goals. It’s a good thing they have been on fire because they have given up at least three goals in three of the four games.
To win this game the Lightning need to get better goal tending. They can’t give up four or five goals in this game and win.
