The Montreal Canadiens have been struggling with the man advantage for a while now and early in Game 2 of their series against the Tampa Bay Lightning, it didn’t look that slump was on the verge of ending.
Lightning captain Steven Stamkos was charged with a double-minor for high sticking, but Montreal couldn’t get anything going and squandered half of their power-play time by having too many men on the ice.
That extended their power-play drought to 27 failed attempts, dating back to their last goal with the man advantage on March 25, per the Canadian Press’ Stephen Whyno.
Montreal has a 2-0 lead in the second period as they look to sweep the first two games in Tampa Bay.
