The Canadiens were back on home turf Saturday, sounding like a team that wasn’t dwelling on past success as they prepared for Game 3 in their playoff series against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

“Focus” and “business mentality” were a few terms that cropped up in Brossard after the Canadiens held a team meeting and did some off-ice stretching.

The team returned to Montreal early Saturday morning with a 2-0 lead over Tampa in their best-of-seven series. On Sunday, the Canadiens get to play in front of a home crowd at the Bell Centre for the first time in the series (7 p.m., CBC, RDS, TSN Radio 690).

“It’s huge,” Canadiens captain Brian Gionta said of coming back home with two road wins. “But at the end of the day we fell into that trap against Boston a few years back. We won two games in (the Bruins’) building and we came back and let off the gas a bit. So we need to make sure that (Sunday) night is our focus. And we’ve got to do the things that have made us successful in the first two games and make sure we stick with that.”

They all understand that as the playoffs go on the games become more difficult to play, said coach Michel Therrien.

“We’re glad that we’re back at home,” he said. “But I like our focus. We’ve got a business mentality. So today it’s about preparing ourselves for tomorrow. And tomorrow is going to be our main focus. And that’s the way we like to do things here,” he said.

They’re trying to maintain that mentality, Gionta said. “Playoffs are extremely emotional. And you need to keep that even keel no matter what’s going on. I think we got a good taste for it last year. A lot of guys hadn’t played in the playoffs last year, so hopefully we learn from that. But it’s still early.”

Therrien called his players a dedicated group of guys who believe in their abilities.

“We really sense a team spirit with our team concept. The players are buying into it. The players also know that when we stay in our team concept, that’s when we’re at our best. That’s what we see now,” Therrien said.

Rene Bourque, who missed five games in March as a healthy scratch, scored twice in the Canadiens’ 4-1 victory on Friday night.
