    Canadiens stun Penguins 2-0 to win qualifying round series

    The Pittsburgh Penguins entered their qualifying round matchup against Montreal healthy but wary. Optimistic but guarded. While they'd shown plenty of grit during a regular season that featured extended absences by high-profile names on their star-laden roster, in a short series facing a goaltender like Carey Price, they took nothing for granted.

    Canadiens complete stunning upset of Penguins with 2-0 victory in Game 4

    TORONTO – Artturi Lehkonen flipped a shot past Tristan Jarry with 4:11 remaining to lift the Montreal Canadiens to a stunning 2-0 victory against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday, clinching their first playoff berth in three years. Paul Byron took advantage of a Pittsburgh turnover, darted behind the Penguins net and then slipped a pass to Lehkonen in front. The 25-year-old Lehkonen found enough space between four Pittsburgh players to slip the puck into the open net.

    Canadiens vs. Penguins Game 4 recap: Playoff Lehkonen

    In arguably the most enthralling series of the qualifying round, the Montreal Canadiens once again took the ice in Toronto as the home team against the Pittsburgh Penguins. On Sidney Crosby’s birthday, the Penguins looked to stave of an upset against the never-say-die Habs, who despite being outplayed for long stretches refused to just roll over and die. The one lineup change for Montreal was the insertion of Alex Belzile.
