The skinny: The Canadiens are on to the second round of the playoffs after Max Pacioretty scored a power-play goal with 42.6 seconds remaining in regulation time to give the Canadiens a 4-3 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning Tuesday night at the Bell Centre. Pacioretty’s first goal of the playoffs allowed the Canadiens to sweep the best-of-seven series in four games.

Stayin’ alive: Tampa grabbed the momentum early in the third period when the Lightning scored twice in a 3:03 span to tie the game at 3-3. Victor Hedman got the bounce when his shot from behind the net went in off Carey Price at 3:29 and Tyler Johnson tied the score at 6:31.

Brière’s time of year: Montreal opened the scoring at 2:24 of the first period when Dale Weise controlled the puck on a rush along the boards and found Daniel Brière coming through the middle alone. Brière’s goal gave him 111 points in 112 playoff games.
