Lightning-Canadiens Preview

(AP) -- The Tampa Bay Lightning have dominated Montreal this season but currently trail the Canadiens by three points in the Atlantic Division.

The Lightning look to narrow that gap by recording their first season sweep of one of the league's most storied franchises Monday night.

Tampa Bay (46-23-7) has outscored Montreal 16-5 in four matchups in 2014-15 and built an early three-goal cushion in a 4-2 home win March 16. Ben Bishop stopped 32 shots while outdueling the Canadiens' Carey Price for the fourth straight time, but has allowed six goals on 33 shots in the Lightning's back-to-back losses.
