WATCH LIVE: Tampa Bay Lightning at Montreal Canadiens (Game 3)


The Tampa Bay Lightning have managed to fight through adversity basically all season long, but this might represent their greatest test yet.

Consider this: the Lightning go into Montreal trailing a first-round series against the Canadiens 2-0 with a shaky goalie playing in place of the guy who has enjoyed a borderline-Vezina-quality breakthrough season. Game 3 between the Lightning and Habs takes place on NBCSN as well as the live stream link below on Sunday:

The Lightning suffered a 5-4 overtime loss to Montreal in Game 1 of the series, so while this contest isn’t a must-win for Tampa Bay, it’s close to it.

The Lightning have an uphill battle ahead of them though, given that rookie Ondrej Palat is hurt and goaltender Ben Bishop isn’t likely to return from his elbow injury “any time soon.”

That being said, Steven Stamkos is healthy and doing everything he can to lead the Lightning. He beat Canadiens goaltender Carey Price twice in Game 1.

Game 2 will start at 7:00 p.m. ET and will air on CNBC. If you would rather watch the game online, you can do so by using the link below:

While Carey Price carries the hype and the gold medal into this series, some wondered if the gap in net was that large between the Montreal Canadiens and Tampa Bay Lightning considering the year Ben Bishop has enjoyed. Well, Bishop is out for Game 1, so that underdog story is in full swing.

Can the host Lightning navigate another bump in the road during a season full of adversity or will Price and the Habs finally prove too much for Tampa Bay? Will begin to find out with Game 1 on Wednesday, which is airing on CNBC and can be streamed via the link below.


This intriguing series opener begins about 30 minutes before the Pittsburgh Penguins host the Columbus Blue Jackets in their own Game 1. If you want to toggle between the two games or even stream one on your computer and watch the other on TV, the Columbus – Pittsburgh game is on NBCSN and can be streamed via this link.

It’s all about to begin, so get excited (and streaming).
