Canadiens-Lightning stream - Stanley Cup Final Game 2 on NBCSN

Keith Jones, Liam McHugh, Patrick Sharp and Anson Carter dive into the latest power rankings for the Conn Smythe Trophy, where Canadiens goaltender Carey Price and Lightning center Brayden Point lead the way.

NBCSN’s coverage of the 2021 Stanley Cup Final continues with Wednesday’s Game 2 between the Montreal Canadiens and Tampa Bay Lightning. Canadiens-Lightning stream coverage begins at 7 p.m. ET on NBCSN and Peacock. You can watch the game online and on the NBC Sports app by clicking here.

It was all Lightning from the get-go in Game 1, as defenseman Eric Cernak scored the opening goal just over six minutes into the game. Semifinal Game 7 hero Yanni Gourde extended the Tampa lead to 2-0 early in the second. Montreal showed life late in the middle frame, as Ben Chiarot’s shot from the point pinballed off two Lightning players and in to make it 2-1. The Lightning pulled away in the third though as Nikita Kucherov scored twice, and then assisted Steven Stamkos on a late power-play goal, ending the Canadiens historic penalty kill run to put a cap on Tampa’s 5-1 win.

The icing on the cake in the Lightning’s win was that Tampa’s final goal came on the power play with 1:10 remaining and snapped Montreal’s record run of 13 straight playoff games without allowing a power play goal. The streak ended at 32 consecutive penalties killed.

Kucherov, who played 18:54, took over the game in the third period. His three points upped his league-high total for this postseason to 30 (7G-23A), making him the fifth player in NHL history with 30-plus points in multiple playoff years. He joins Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux as the only players in NHL history with consecutive 30-plus point postseasons.
