Canadiens hope to extend unbeaten streak vs. Lightning

Dec 14, 2006 - 3:18 PM Tampa Bay (14-15-2) at Montreal (17-8-5) 7:30 pm EST

MONTREAL (Ticker) -- Sergei Samsonov and the Montreal Canadiens hope to build on an emotional win when they host the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday.

Samsonov snapped a 19-game scoring drought with two goals to help the Canadiens to a 4-3 victory over Boston on Tuesday. The left wing had not scored since netting two goals in a 5-4 shootout loss to Toronto on October 28.

Those attending Tuesday's game mourned the death of Laura Gainey, daughter of Montreal general manger Bob Gainey. Laura was lost at sea last Friday.

Vincent Lecavalier had a goal and two assists for the Lightning in a 5-4 loss to Toronto on Tuesday. Tampa Bay has lost six of its last seven contests.

Defenseman Sheldon Souray scored a pair of goals to lead the Canadiens to a 3-1 win over the Lightning on November 15.
