Canadiens' penalty kill is the true star of Game 4

TAMPA, Florida — Josh Anderson boldly said the Montreal Canadiens were not done after a disastrous performance in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final. 

He made sure of that by scoring in overtime Monday night in Game 4 to force a fifth game against the Tampa Lightning. 

Once again, the Canadiens proved to be one tough out. 

The Habs beat the Bolts 3-2 at Bell Centre, doing so by getting depth scoring from rookies Nick Suzuki and Alexander Romanov in regulation and Anderson in overtime. But the most crucial part of the game was the four-minute double-minor from a high stick by captain Shea Weber that came with just 1:01 left in regulation.
