TBL @ MTL - 17:14 of the Second Period

At 17:14 of the second period in the Lightning/Canadiens game, the Situation Room observed the puck cross the goal line but play continued until 17:50 when a review was initiated. The referee informed the Situation Room that he observed incidental contact in the crease by Lightning forward Tyler Johnson on goaltender Carey Price, if in fact the puck crossed the goal line. Video review confirmed that the puck crossed the goal line. According to Rule 78.5 "Apparent goals shall be disallowed by the Referee when an attacking player has interfered with a goalkeeper in his goal crease." This is not a reviewable play therefore the referee's decision on the ice stands, no goal Tampa Bay. The clock was reset to 17:14.

Tribune's Erlendsson discusses the injury to Stamkos

Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune joins NHL Live from Bell Centre to discuss the injury to Tampa Bay Lightning superstar Steven Stamkos and how the team moves on without his services.

"You're never going to replace what Steven Stamkos brings to the ice, but what Tampa has this year is a little more of a structured defensive system," Erlendsson said. "There's a belief in that room that with that system and the way they play defensive hockey, the can still find a way to score three-four goals a night to give themselves a chance to pick up some wins here."

Briere returning to Canadiens lineup

MONTREAL -- While the Tampa Bay Lightning are learning to adjust to life without Steven Stamkos, the Montreal Canadiens will be welcoming back a key forward when the two teams face each other at Bell Centre on Tuesday.

Daniel Briere will return to the lineup after missing 10 games recovering from a concussion, and he will be doing so at his natural position of center for the first time this season.

Briere will center a line with rookie Michael Bournival and Rene Bourque, taking the spot of David Desharnais, who will be a healthy scratch for the second time in a week.

"It's never easy to be out of the lineup," Briere said Tuesday. "You kind of feel like you are letting down your teammates, especially when things aren't going well. We had a bit of a bad streak where we lost four games in a row, and you feel a bit like it's your fault because you're out."

Nash will practice with Rangers on Wednesday

New York Rangers forward Rick Nash (head) will return to practice Wednesday, coach Alain Vigneaulttold reporters Tuesday prior to a game against the New Jersey Devils at Madison Square Garden.

“With concussions, you never know," Vigneault said. "He’s made some big strides and, hopefully, he’ll continue on a daily basis to make strides.

"Since I've seen him on the ice before practice, every day I've asked how he's doing and today I got the call after the morning's skate that he was going to join the team tomorrow. I didn't ask [about contact], I was just told he was going to skate with the boys."

Flames hope Stempniak's return provides spark

CALGARY -- Having dropped three straight games and coming away from a four-game road trip with just two of a possible eight points, the Calgary Flames are searching for a spark at Scotiabank Saddledome.

They might have found one in Lee Stempniak.

Stempniak, who has missed Calgary's past seven games with a broken foot, is good to go when the Flames host the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday.

"It's just hard to see the team lose," said Stempniak, who has four goals and nine points in 10 games. "I don't know if I would've made a difference at all, but it's just not being a part of it. You work so hard to be able to play the games. Anytime you're not playing it's tough, especially when you're not winning.

"Hopefully we can turn that around tonight."
