What We're Watching

Lightning at Canadiens

Watch: 8 p.m. ET, NBC

Odds: Lightning -132, Canadiens +114 || O/U 5*

Pick: Despite their 3-1 loss in Game 2 on Wednesday night, the Canadiens controlled the puck for a good portion of the game. Sports Section likes Montreal to do the same in Game 3 — but this time come away with a victory. Take the Habs on the moneyline and the over.
