The Montreal Canadiens aren’t going down without a fight.

In transition, Anderson pushed the puck up ice and attempted to feed rookie Cole Caufield who was streaking towards the net. Although Caufield whiffed on his shot, Anderson circled back around to the front of the net and put the puck past Andrei Vasilevskiy.

Anderson’s goal, his second of the game, earned Montreal its first win of the Final, sending the series back to Tampa Bay for Game 5.

Tampa Bay's mayor should be satisfied, at least.
