After seeing the Montreal Canadiens take a 2-0 series lead out of Tampa Bay and then witnessing an amazing pregame ceremony, the usually incredible atmosphere inside Bell Centre to start Sunday's Game 3 was off the charts.

The roof darn near exploded, then, when Rene Bourque got behind the Lightning defense and beat Anders Lindback on a breakawy for a goal just 11 seconds into the game.

To give you a sense of what the scene was like, take this tweet from Bruce Arthur inside Bell Centre.

At 11 seconds it was quick but it wasn't the quickest in Habs playoff history. That record still belongs to Bob Gainey, who took all of seven seconds to score in 1977.

By the way, that was already Bourque's third goal in this series after having nine all season long. So yes, he's having a nice series.
