The Canadiens returned home to the Bell Centre on Tuesday with the hope of continuing their six-game winning streak.  The Tampa Bay Lightning, however, had a different idea.  It took Montreal quite a long time to even register a single shot on goal, and Tampa outplayed them at every turn.  Dale Weise got the Habs on the board in the first frame, but the Lightning kept lighting their lamp.  Despite a third-period goal from Max Pacioretty, the Canadiens couldn’t mount enough of a comeback.  Final score: Lightning, 4-2.

After a few days of rest and practice, the Canadiens took to home ice once again.  This time it was the Pittsburgh Penguins who had come to town and this was a much more tightly played game.  Pacioretty tallied the first goal of the night and the defense managed to hold back the Penguins offense, allowing only a tying goal.  Carey Price had multiple highlight-reel saves, most notably against Sidney Crosby.  But it was Crosby who would end up with the overtime winner while Pittsburgh was on the power play thanks to a too-many-men penalty.  Final score: Penguins, 2-1 (OT).
