TAMPA BAY, FLORIDA – With a 3-0 series lead, the Tampa Bay Lightning will look to make work quick work of the Montreal Canadiens tonight in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Series.
Puck drops at 8 p.m. ET.
Should the Lightning complete the sweep the series tonight, they would be the first team to sweep a Stanley Cup Final since Detroit Red Wings in 1998 when they defeated the Washington Capitals.
If the Lightning win tonight, they would also be the first team clinch back-to-back Stanley Cups since the Pittsburgh Penguins (2016-2017).
For the Canadiens, only five other times has a team lost the first three games of a series before rallying to force a Game 7 since 1939 when the series format went to best-of-7 series.
Tampa Bay Goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy has posted a shutout in each of Tampa Bay’s past four series-clinching wins.
The game will be shown on NBC tonight.
