TAMPA, Fla. Sean Taylor Redskins Jersey . -- Having completed their regular-season series, the Tampa Bay Lightning and Montreal Canadiens soon could find themselves battling in the post-season. Tyler Johnson scored the go-ahead goal on a short-handed breakaway late in the third period and the Lightning clinched a playoff berth with a 3-1 victory over the Canadiens on Tuesday night. "Just being in the right spot and getting lucky sometimes," Johnson said. The win and losses by New Jersey and Washington gave Tampa Bay its first post-season berth since 2011 and only its second in seven years. Montreal ended a five-game winning streak, but also qualified for the post-season by virtue of the losses by New Jersey and Washington. Canadiens goalie Carey Price took some consolation in advancing to the post-season. "Were disappointed with our game today, but big picture, weve got to be happy with that," he said. The win moved Tampa Bay, with a game in hand, into a second-place tie with Montreal in the Atlantic Division. The second- and third-place teams in each division will meet in the first round of the playoffs. "Its just one game, but its really the 76 games all bottled into one," Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper said. "What you are really striving for is to win the Stanley Cup, but you cannot win the Cup if you dont get into the playoffs." With teammate Nate Thompson serving a minor penalty for boarding, Johnson picked up a loose puck near the Montreal blue line, skated in on Price and backhanded a shot inside the left post with 7:19 remaining in the game. Canadiens right wing Brendan Gallagher was on one knee in the low slot when he redirected a rebound past goalie Ben Bishop to open the scoring 10:18 into the first period. Ryan Callahan made it 1-1 on a power play 9:19 into the second, skating through the left circle toward Price and lifting a shot high into the net. Tampa Bay was on a power play when Alex Killorn closed out the scoring with an empty-netter with 45 seconds left in the third period. Bishop finished with 25 saves, while Price stopped 30 shots. Tampa Bay winger Teddy Purcell slammed a shot past Price with 11.7 seconds left in the second period, but the officials ruled forward J.T. Brown made contact with the goaltender and disallowed the goal. The call drew an angry response from Tampa Bay fans after a replay appeared on the video screen. The crowd also became irate when Montreals Douglas Murray drew a match penalty for an illegal check to the head of fellow defenceman Michael Kostka, setting up a 5-on-3 advantage for the Lightning with 2:13 left in the game. "If the crowds reaction was anything after they saw it, then it seems that it was illegal," Cooper said. "Those are the hits you want to take out of the game. Im sure Murray wasnt looking to hit him in the head." Lightning forward Ondrej Palat, who earlier in the day was named the top NHL rookie for the second time in three months, assisted on the goals by Callahan and Killorn.

The Jets record now sits at 12-12-4, while their road record drops to 5-6-1. Ten of the 12 road games have been one-goal games and overall, the Jets have now had 17 games decided by one goal. It was an 11:30am et start in Philadelphia and the home team had far more jump in the early going than the visitors. Scott Hartnell opened the scoring 48 seconds into the game as the Jets had trouble getting out of their own end. It was the first time in four games the Jets did not open the scoring. Final shots in the first were 13-2 in favour of the Flyers, and if not for a number of great saves by Ondrej Pavelec, this one would have been over early. His best stop came off Sean Couturier on a shorthanded breakaway. The Jets also ran into penalty trouble at the end of the period and the Flyers started the second with a 5-on-3 advantage for almost a minute and a half. It was great penalty killing by the Jets, in particular Bryan Little, James Wright, Mark Stuart and Jacob Trouba. After the kill, the Jets gained some momentum and forced the Flyers into a penalty. But another shorthanded breakaway and this time a goal for Couturier made it a 2-0 game. It was the fifth shorthanded marker the Jets have given up, most in the NHL. The Jets did outshoot the Flyers in the second 12-10 and had a number of good chances but could not beat Steve Mason, who was terrific. The Jets were the better team in the third but it was not until 12:53 when Michael Frolik scored to make it a 2-1 game. Mark Scheifele and Stuart drew assists, aas Scheifele now has points in four straight games. Authentic Doug Williams Jersey.

Evander Kane left the game early in the second, the result of a hit from Brayden Coburn late in the first. Kane tried it in the second but left and is listed as day-to-day with a lower body injury. Pavelec has now given up only seven goals in his last four road games and has dropped his goals-against-average below his career season-low of 2.73. Stuart and Dustin Byfuglien each had five hits, Little led the way in shots on goal with five with most of those shots being very good scoring chances, while Wright was the best face-off man winning six of nine. Byfuglien ended the night with 27:24 and had a few power play shifts as a forward. It was Blake Wheelers 400th NHL game, but despite a couple of chances has seen his goalless stretch hit 14 games. For the second straight game, Olli Jokinen made two trips to the penalty box and has now surpassed the 1,000 mark for penalty minutes in his career. Head coach Claude Noel felt there were too many players that started slowly but "saying it was because of the 11:30 start would be an excuse." He was disappointed with the power play. "We cant get anything out of it and havent been able to through the year. Finding solutions to that issue and that problem is certainly challenging for us." The Jets will practice in New York the next two days in preparation for Mondays game with the Rangers (TSN Jets and TSN 1290). Saturday is an outdoor practice in Central Park.
