The Tampa Bay Lightning play game two in the first series of the Stanley Cup Playoffs versus the Montreal Canadiens tonight. Puck drops at 7:00 p.m. at the Tampa Bay Times Forum and you can watch on Sun Sports. 

Here are some storylines to follow heading into tonight's matchup: 

  • Six players recorded their first Stanley Cup Playoffs point last game, and of those six, five were making their Stanley Cup Playoffs debut. 
  • The Bolts also extended their perfect penalty kill record versus the Canadiens, killing off both penalties in Game One and extending their record to 16-for-16 this season.
  • Steven Stamkos' two goals last game rank him tied for first for playoff goals so far. His performance was his fourth multi-point game in postseason play. 
  • The Lightning recorded 40 hits on Wednesday night with Radko Gudas leading the team with nine.
  • Ondrej Palat is a game time decision although his status is doubtful.
