Tom Gilbert scores to save a bit of face for the Canadiens

The Canadiens are getting blown out, but look at the bright side, they scored two goals.

While the Montreal Canadiens have been getting lit up by the Tampa Bay Lightning with a historically awful night shorthanded, Tom Gilbert broke a run of five straight Lightning goals with one of his own, bringing the Canadiens to two goals on the night, which is actually above average for these playoffs.

The goal was Gilbert's second of the playoffs, with his other goal being the Habs' only marker in a 5-1 blowout at the hands of the Senators in round 1.
