The Tampa Bay Lightning hope to begin pulling out of a slump that has seen them drop five of six games when they host the Atlantic Division-rival Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night.
Montreal had pulled within seven points of a playoff position entering Wednesday and is showing no signs of packing it up for the season after scoring 22 goals during the six-game surge.
Montreal D Jeff Petry scored in each of the last two games and owns two goals and an assist versus the Lightning this season.
Tampa Bay Lightning
The Lightning had won a franchise-record 11 straight games before cooling off the past few weeks, and could not recover from a two-goal deficit Tuesday in a 2-1 loss to Boston that pushed them nine points behind the Atlantic-leading Bruins.
