The Montreal Canadiens' hopes of a deep run in the 2014 Stanley Cup playoffs got off to a good start as they defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 1. 

It is just one game, of course, but the Habs successfully took home-ice advantage away from the Lightning and did so in dominant fashion. Sure, the game went to overtime, but Montreal outplayed Tampa Bay in nearly every facet of the game.

The Canadiens will need more efforts like the one they put forth in Game 1 if they hope to continue their winning ways this spring. There were also areas to improve on and dealing with those issues will also be key to Montreal's success. 

So how can Montreal make a deep run in this year's postseason? Read on to find out. 

Here's the Montreal Canadiens' blueprint to a deep run in the 2014 Stanley Cup playoffs.
