MONTREAL - Brad Richards scored in the shoot-out to give the Tampa Bay Lightning a 3-2 victory over the Montreal Canadiens last night.

Richards drove in fast and put a wrist shot past Carey Price on Tampa Bay's second attempt.

Tampa Bay held on through the final 1:56 of overtime after Vaclav Prospal was sent off for tripping Kostitsyn.

Montreal's Alex Kovalev opened the scoring 47 seconds into the middle period.

Vincent Lecavalier scored early in the second period, and Andre Roy struck unassisted later in the period as the Lightning recovered to take a 2-1 lead.
