Tampa Bay Lightning's 5 Biggest Questions in Playoff Series vs. Montreal
STEVE NESIUS
Montreal and Tampa Bay met four times in the regular season. All but one game was decided by a 2-1 score.

It wasn’t pretty, but the Tampa Bay Lightning have secured home ice for the opening-round series against the Montreal Canadiens. With the shootout win over Washington April 13, the Bolts turn the focus to the Canadiens. Heading into the postseason series, Tampa Bay has a few big questions to address.

The Lightning finished the season on a four-game winning streak after a 1-0 shootout win over the Capitals. The win gave Tampa Bay 101 points on the year and secured second place in the Atlantic Division. 

The effort against Washington was a bit nonchalant, but strong wins over Toronto, Philadelphia and Columbus have the Bolts headed into the playoffs with great momentum. The playoffs start April 16, as per the schedule release on NHL.com.

The following are the questions the Lightning must answer heading into the first round of the playoffs.
