All three previous games needed at least overtime – and two went to a shootout – with the Tampa Bay Lightning holding a 2-0-1 series edge. Montreal and Tampa Bay are all but guaranteed to meet in the first round of the playoffs. The only thing to be determined over the final two weeks of the regular season is which team will hold home-ice advantage in the best-of-seven series. While Therrien begged off any extra consideration for the Lightning, Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper admitted it was an important game. "It's hard not to put emphasis on the game because we're, what, two points behind them?," Cooper told the team website. "I don't know how things are going to play out in the end here, but beating them would sure be a nice rallying point for out team. … A four-point game? That's what that one is." Alexei Emelin had left the team to return to Montreal for family reasons. Emelin is expected to rejoin the team in Tampa on Tuesday and be ready to face the Lightning. Tomas Plekanec, who missed Saturday’s game against the Florida Panthers for family reasons, was back on the ice Monday morning in Florida as the Canadiens practised in preparation for Tuesday’s game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
