Video: Habs take 1-0 lead in just 11 seconds

Apr 20, 2014, 7:32 PM EDT

The good news is that Anders Lindback has plenty of time to redeem himself on Sunday. The bad news is that it took him very little time to need to earn that redemption.

Tampa Bay Lightning head coach Jon Cooper decided to turn to him in Game 3, and early on, the Montreal Canadiens made that look like a bad decision. Rene Bourque beat Lindback just 11 seconds into the contest:

Lindback seems to have stabilized since then, but the Bolts find themselves in a nervous situation as they’re trailing and are currently in a 2-0 hole in the series.

    That crowd at bell Centre… lol so loud that you can’t even hear whistles.

    Tampa is playing so poorly. Lindback made numerous big stops after letting in that first softie. It’s amazing it isn’t 2 or 3 zip.

    CBC, relax on Carey Price. The guy has not been close to tested since the first period of game two.

    I see Habs homerism among NHL referees is alive and well.

    Lightning just got go-ahead goal waved off on a really bad call. Refs making this game hard to watch letting some questionable hits go and then negating a good goal.

    who would have thought a referee named francis charron from gatineau quebec would have choked on the no goal

    life is full of mysteries

      I heard he was a Sens fan growing up. You know…. Within walking distance of the rink….

    Hard to tell if that knee to the head was intentional. But Habs fans, as usual, are pieces of ####

    What garbage officiating.

    Habs fans booing Stamkos as he gets to his feet and skates off the ice. What a classless fan base

  11. drewsylvania - Apr 20, 2014 at 8:55 PM

    Ok. Refs CLEARLY rooting here.

  12. marino57 - Apr 20, 2014 at 9:00 PM

    Can the refs be any more bias. How was that in any way not a goal clearly no interfere we

    you guys and girls really have no clue. Not only did he consider rule 69.3 to make his deccision, there was another referee on the ice who doesn’t have a french (Devorski) name, and is a veteran referee, and could have overruled Charon if he thought it was the wrong call. And the linesman who also know the rules very well give their feedback. So, invoking the referee is a homer only reveals your ignorance.
