Cedric Paquette's tripping penalty late in the third period led to Montreal's series clinching goal in the final minute of regulation.
"I felt pretty bad, to be honest," Paquette said. "That's my bad, I was a little too aggressive and he fell ... . They didn't call much in this game, and I did a bad play, but that is just a bad moment." He earned an assist on Tyler Johnson's game-tying goal earlier in the third and finished the series with two helpers in four matches. Coach Jon Cooper praised the 20-year-old forward for his contributions after the game. Paquette will probably be in the running for a roster spot with the Lightning out of training camp in the fall.

Cedric Paquette picked up an assist and four hits in Game 1 against the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday night.

Unfortunately, he was also partially responsible for Tampa Bay's blown coverage on Dale Weise's overtime winner. Paquette wants to "make [the Canadiens] pay" after the team passed on him five times during the 2012 NHL draft. He plays a gritty game and he can contribute offensively, which gave him a spot on the fourth line to open the postseason.
