Bishop was replaced by Andrei Vasilevskiy, who made his Stanley Cup Playoffs debut.

Facing elimination in the best-of-7 series, Montreal took a 3-0 lead 5:08 into the second period and won 6-2.

Andrei Markov and Max Pacioretty (shorthanded) scored in the first period, and David Desharnais in the second.

Bishop made 11 saves, one night after making 30 in a 2-1 win that put the Lightning one victory from reaching the Eastern Conference Final.

He had allowed six goals in the previous five games. Bishop, who started back-to-back games once during the regular season, had won eight straight games against the Canadiens, including the first three of this series.
