MONTREAL (AP) — Brian Gionta scored his second goal of the game with 47 seconds left in regulation and the Montreal Canadiens snapped a three-game skid with a 3-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday night.

Gionta was at the left post to put a rebound off the end boards into an open side for the winner.

Alex Galchenyuk also scored for the Canadiens, who had been outscored 18-8 in their three previous outings. Montreal swept their three-game season series with the Lightning.

Richard Panik and Vincent Lecavalier scored for Tampa Bay, which is winless in five and has one victory in its last eight games. The Lightning ended a four-game road trip.

It was Montreal’s first win since clinching a playoff spot last week.
