Liveblog: Playoff game 3 – Canadiens win a tight one, take 3-0 series lead

EllerTB

Stranglehold

The Canadiens scored early and hung on late to take a commanding 3-0 lead in this quarter-final series.

Rene Bourque, who's been sensational, opened the scoring 11 seconds into the game. And the Canadiens dominated the first 10 minutes of the opening period.

But Tampa Bay didn't quit.

A power-play goal by Ondrej Palat tied it and Ryan Callahan had a go-ahead goal waved off when the zebras called Alex Killorn for interference on Carey Price.

Brendan Gallagher restored the Canadiens' lead, capping a brilliant play by P.K. Subban at the end of the second period.

The sublime Tomas Plekanec scored less than six minutes into the third, but the visitors got a Matthew Carle goal to make it 3-2 and set up a tense final eight minutes.

The Canadiens go for the sweep Tuesday night.

Plekanec scores a big one

Tomas Plekanec, playing a brilliant 200-foot series, cashed a pass from Brandon Prust to give the Canadiens a 3-1 lead early in the period.

Over, right?

Wrong.

The Lightning got a Matthew Carle point-shot goal at 11:36 to set up a very hairy final eight-plus minutes.

Crazy stuff

An Ondrej Palat power-play goal, scored with dismaying ease, got Tampa Bay back into the game.

Then controversy.

With the Canadiens in total disarray, a Ryan Callahan shot found its way into the net.

But it was waved off on the dubious call that Alex Killorn had somehow interfered with Price.

Late-period heroics by P.K. Subban set up Brendan Gallagher for a go-ahead goal that came against the flow of play.

The Lightning had a 12-7 shot advantage.

Who is that number 17?

It took Rene Bourque all of 11 seconds to get the Canadiens on the board.

The Conn Smythe candidate was sprung by a superb P.K. Subban pass.

Shortly theereafter, the Canadiens had a four-minute power-play.

The visitors settled down as the period progressed, but the Canadiens had a 13-8 shot advantage.

 

Desperate visitors

Having dropped the first two games of the series on home ice, Tampa Bay needs a win in Game 3.

But the Bell Centre, one of the NHL's more raucous venues, will be rockin' and rollin' in support of the hometown Canadiens.

The atmosphere should be electric on Easter Sunday evening, as the Canadiens marketing mavens promise pre-game playoff pyrotechnics to pump up the capacity crowd.

Through their long and (mostly) glorious history, the Canadiens are 49-5 in playoff series they've led 2-0. But they have managed to squander three of the last four 2-0 series leads.

It should be a good one.

Puck drops 7:10ish.

    I predict a real run from the Lightning. If the boys can weather it, it will be time to grind Tampa down the way they did the first two games.

    Hopefully, we’ll watch the Habs grab the momentum quickly and bring it to them.

    I’ve been trying all weekend to come up with a name for our top line, the best i could come up with is the
    Desharnai S
    —–Vane K
    Paciorett Y
    SKYline. Maybe even the Montreal SKYline.
    The team is soaring and so is this line.
    I can envision a jet flying by at full volume on the jumbotron leaving a smoke trail with SKY written on it, and, each member of the line posing arms folded under their respective letters.

    Repent ye doubters. Our time is near.

  36. Dulljerk says:

    I expect Tampa to play a very physical game tonight. Even though they have speed, it has not worked for them. So, look for them to make some room on the ice with physicality. Should be interesting to see how Montreal responds.

    No eternal reward will forgive us for wasting the dawn.

    • johnnylarue says:

      In spite of what the hit count might suggest, Tampa have been on the losing end of the physicality battle so far. I don’t think they have the horses–or bulls–to really intimidate or dominate this incarnation of the Habs…

      I do know that a Tampa win tonight would set the stage for the gruelling 6 or 7-game series everyone was expecting, and I hope to see Montreal display some of the killer instinct they showed in the last few weeks of the season, beating down repeatedly on desperate bubble teams…

  37. piter says:

    Seabrook sure got a B-Day present from the League today. Only 3 games is definitely a gift for that hit. I’m surprised Chicago’s sunk so low to be playing Boston’s style of hockey. All the slashes, the stick work, late hits and such. I guess they’re worried.

    • Timo says:

      Explain to me Seabrooke getting 3 games vs Lucic getting 5K fine. THe only think I wish is that Lucic was on the receiving end of that hit.

    • Strummer says:

      Don’t forget that 3 games in the playoffs is worth more than 3 regular season games.
      Potentially he could be out for the season if the Hawks can’t extend this to 6 games.

So I plan to condition myself accordingly tonight to be able to stand the swill for the hopefully long payoffs to come.

    Good news on the young’ens being called up. They have endured a season amongst their peers also so are not un-initiated to what it takes to win, but I hope they see what kind of an extra gear they will need when it’s their turn to shine. I love these kind of moves.

    • Timo says:

      Yeah, Wings looked like they were not a match. But then again… I barely recognize any names on that team anymore. Maybe they took a page from the Habs book on rebuilding and will take next half century to build another winner.

    • ffenliv says:

      It was easier for fans to dislike Maclean during that series because it was a very emotionally and physically charged affair, including the hit on Eller, and the game where Maclean called a timeout and loaded up a late PP in a game that was already won. Were it not for those incidents, no one here would care about him.

      If some Tampa player goes out tonight and tries to decapitate someone, people here will turn on Cooper.

      • mark-ID says:

        Also the fact that we are leading 2-0 has something to do with it, I think. If it were the opposite…..I don’t think many of us would see such comments in the same light.

        But yea Cooper seems like a pretty good guy. Maclean last year acted like such a child. Ughh…don’t like to think about it.

        The Habs have won nothing, they have put themselves in good position. That’s it nothing more. They need 2 more wins to breathe deeply once again then it starts all over. The last thing the Habs should do is consider 2 wins anything more than a good first step.

        The Lightning will come out blazing tonight. The Habs might be on the ropes again or they might come out with superior fire power. The series is theirs for the taking but they have to play to win not to “not lose” Fortune favors the brave!!!

    With the Habs killing the TB rush in the neutral zone as effectively as they did in Game 2, I’m also feeling like this is Montreal’s series to lose at this point.

    If they can maintain that level of discipline and continue to choke off the Lightning offence before it gets to the blue line, it’s case closed.

    And his “the Canadiens are a bunch of girly-men” comment was unnecessary too.

  82. Donkey Hoat says:

    That sounds un-Cooper-like.

  83. stevieray says:

    It,s all about the length of your hockey pants I guess:)

  84. Da Hema says:

    It is a mystifying comment. While its emotional effect on his own team would be at best marginal, it certainly should fire up the Habs.

  85. piter says:

    …..for Gionta

  86. Dust says:

    He played good in last years playoffs too. He seems to up his game for the playoffs\

  87. UKRAINIANhab says:

    Boo hoo!

  88. UKRAINIANhab says:

    You see the future ?

  89. Captain aHab says:

    I wouldn’t knock Detroit/Babcock right away….

    Me skull and crossbones arn’t the only thing I plan on raisin’ tonight.

  90. naweed235 says:

    as far as I’m concerned, the Wings now have home ice advantage but more importantly, hockey IQ advantage

  91. UKRAINIANhab says:

    The title is thiers… suarez is king

  92. UKRAINIANhab says:

    Just my opinion. Good point

  93. Habitant in Surrey says:

    …I’m not so sure about Strombo and HNIC :)

  94. sCOTT1243 says:

    Can wait until Stroumboulopoulos takes over!

  95. Coach K says:

    Sure hope that’s the case and it wasn’t a Freudian slip.

    —When Hell freezes over, I’ll play hockey there too—

  96. johnnylarue says:

    I’m not saying they’re biased–just doing a piss poor job of managing a playoff game.

  97. WindsorHab-10 says:

    Don’t forget he saved a goal before a good goal was waved off.
    Thank you Zebras. Don Cherry is having a heart attack.

  98. slapshot777 says:

    I have never seen the like. CBC= Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and yet we have these morons cheering for Tampa Bay. I mean really, our tax dollars paying for these idiots to cheer for American teams. I can see NBC cheering for Montreal tonight. I bet that guy isn’t working the next game.

  99. Danno says:

    A good attorney knows it’s not prudent to show hostilities towards the judge

    I guess you don’t understand the rules

  103. w.p.d says:

    WTF are you doing here? The rest of your bros are on the golf course .

  104. sCOTT1243 says:

    And it has never happened to the habs….as you were.

  105. duffy says:

    You get my Vote !

  106. Et le but says:

    We get it…

  107. Dust says:

    have to disagree. no one on the team i’d rather have on the ice at the end of the game than those two

  108. twilighthours says:

    Hey scot, on 5on5, plex and Gionta don’t play on the same line. So they really couldn’t be on for all of TBs goals (TB has no 4 on 4 goals)

  109. punkster says:

    Don’t bother man.

    Release the Subbang!!!

  110. UKRAINIANhab says:

  113. Captain aHab says:

    —————-
    Me skull and crossbones arn’t the only thing I plan on raisin’ tonight.

  114. Captain aHab says:

    Kerry Fraser, whose has always hated the Habs, said the call was correct.

    Me skull and crossbones arn’t the only thing I plan on raisin’ tonight.

  115. nova scotia vees says:

    You again. So this is what Leaf fans do with all their free time. Pose as a Habs fan on the Habs site. What a loser creep you are. Pitiful really.

  116. third generation haber says:

    That was the most retarded post I’ve read on HIO.

    Referee’s, who have families to support and are aware that video replay has been invented, do not risk their careers to help their favorite teams win you idiot!!!

    While bad calls have an impact on the game, they don’t allow teams to go up 3-0 in a series. Montreal, who is also subject to bad calls, is up 3-0 because they are outworking T-bay.

    Stop crying in the basement ..i am sure mommy will find your Kessel doll soon and you will have a good night sleep with it…

  118. TheLogician says:

    a breathing living sens fan actually exists?? there goes the $20 i had on them finding a living sasquatch first.

  119. sprague cleghorn says:

    zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    … ‘ow could we forget that?

  120. chesterfiled says:

    Whoa! Unorthodox! Is the expression ‘not catholic’ applicable? Sure let’s have Santa Klaus, Mean Gene and the great Joan Rivers officiate too. Complete chaos might be really fun, if no eyes are lost

  121. Loop_Garoo says:

    Ridiculous post, go home.

  122. db says:

    well, they have a lot of spare time…

  123. TheLogician says:

    his mom’s basement is in ottawa…so more likely that it’s a Spezza inflatable, not kessel, doll keeping him company.

  124. Mr. Biter says:

    Yeah, they can’t even make the Leafs win with an X box.

  125. Caesar is along for the ride for 25 says:

    could be he finishes with the most points on the Habs this spring. Seems to be in on every goal.
