The Montreal Canadiens have fought back from a 3-0 series deficit to force a Game 6 against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Given that Game 7 will be in Montreal if necessary, an argument can be made that tonight’s contest is Tampa Bay’s best remaining chance to end this series.
That task got harder last night when forward Ryan Callahan had an emergency appendectomy that’s expected to keep him out of tonight’s contest. Jonathan Marchessault, who has just four games worth of NHL experience, might be inserted into the lineup as a result.
The contest will start at 7:30 p.m. ET and air on NBCSN, but you can tune in as early as 7:00 p.m. for pregame coverage. You also have the option of streaming the game via NBC Sports Live Extra:
