On a night when the goaltending dominated the play. Mathieu Garon was a shade better than Carey Price.

Garon, who was once the Canadiens' goaltender of the future, stopped 23 shots Tuesday night to lead the Tampa Bay Lightning to a 2-1 win over the Canadiens at the Tampa Bay Times Forum.

"Their goaltender was very good and we had some opportunities where he bailed their team out," said Canadiens coach Randy Cunneyworth. "Actually both goalies played well. (Price) gave us a chance to get in the game and play."
