    Pin It

      The Montreal Canadiens are one step closer to extending their season.

      Center Tomas Plekanec’s early third-period goal stood as the game-winner as the Canadiens took a commanding lead in the Eastern Conference first-round playoff series with a 3-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Sunday night in the Bell Centre.

      “We’ve seen many different scenarios in the playoffs and we have to have the same approach for the next game that we’ve had for the past three games,” Montreal defenseman P.K.
