Revenge is a dish best served cold...
Ben Bishop allowed 1 goal on 17 shots for the victory. He made the 1-2 key stops he needed to make, and let the team in front of him do the rest. Efficient performance.

Why was I so tough on the Lightning after they sleepwalked through more than half of the Ottawa game. Because, this. This is what they're capable of. You had two of the best in the game, Stamkos and Hedman, take over a game, Bishop making critical saves at key junctures, and the overall speed and skill of the Lightning simply running Montreal out of the building. They have the ability to do that to dominate just about everyone in the Eastern Conference if they focus the way they did tonight.
Vladislav Namestnikov had a night of firsts with 1 goal and 1 assist for a +1 rating in 9:30. He also had 3 shots and 1 blocked shot and he was 33% on draws.
