Game 3 is Monday in Dallas.
CANADIENS 4, LIGHTNING 1
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Rene Bourque had two goals and David Desharnais and Brendan Gallagher also scored, leading the Canadiens to the victory.
Carey Price stopped 26 shots for Montreal, redeeming himself following a less than stellar performance during a 5-4 overtime win in Game 1.
A second road victory in three nights sends the Canadiens home with a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. Game 3 is Sunday.
Bourque and Desharnais scored in the second period after defensive breakdowns left Tampa Bay goaltender Anders Lindback in tough situations. Gallagher made it 3-0 with an unassisted goal in the third period.
Price lost his bid for a shutout when Teddy Purcell scored for Tampa Bay with less than two minutes remaining.
