Rene Bourque scored the fastest playoff-opening goal for the Canadiens in almost 37 years and Carey Price came up with 27 saves, and Montreal is one victory away from a sweep of the Tampa Bay Lightning after an 3-2 win in Game 3 of this Eastern Conference quarterfinal set on Sunday.

Brendan Gallagher added a goal and one assist, while Tomas Plekanec also lit the lamp for the Canadiens, who can advance to the conference semifinals with another positive decision in Tuesday's Game 4 on home ice.

P.K. Subban contributed a pair of helpers for Montreal, which hasn't played in the second round since reaching the Eastern finals in 2010.

Ondrej Palat and Matt Carle provided offense with Steven Stamkos assisting on both for the Lightning, who face a long uphill battle if they wish to stay alive.

Anders Lindback made 28 saves in the setback.
