ATLANTA -- There was no way Julio Teheran was leaving the game after Eric Campbells liner hit his right leg and bounced toward third base in the fourth inning. Kemal Ishmael Jersey . Teheran was determined to pitch through the pain, especially after the Braves gave him three runs in the first. Chris Johnson hit a three-run double, Teheran overcame the injury scare to pitch seven strong innings and Atlanta beat the New York Mets 3-1 Wednesday night to complete a three-game sweep. The Braves extended their season-best winning streak to seven games, but perhaps the best news was that Teheran wasnt hurt. Atlanta, which placed catcher Evan Gattis on the 15-day disabled list this week with a bulging disk in his back, couldnt afford another key injury as it battles Washington for the NL East lead. Teheran said his lower right leg was "burning" after he was struck by the liner. "I wanted to stay in the game so bad," Teheran said. With manager Fredi Gonzalez and assistant trainer Jim Lovell watching from behind the mound, Teheran tested the leg with a few throws to the plate and stayed in. Teheran (8-5) gave up four hits and three walks while lowering his ERA to 2.29. "He gave us a great outing," Gonzalez said. "The last two innings, it was a gut check. He got himself in trouble and made some great pitches." Jordan Walden pitched a perfect ninth for his third save as closer Craig Kimbrel received a night off. The Mets have lost four straight and seven of their last eight games and are a season-worst 11 games below .500. They hope to have David Wright is back in the lineup when they open a home series against Texas on Friday night. Wright remained in New York this week to receive treatment for his bruised left rotator cuff. "Obviously we miss Davids bat in the lineup, theres no doubt," Mets manager Terry Collins said. "We competed as good as we can compete." The Braves remain a half-game ahead of Washington. Atlantas winning streak includes a four-game sweep at Philadelphia and its first sweep of the Mets since September 2012 at New York. The seven-game streak is Atlantas longest since 14 straight from July 26-Aug. 7 last season. New York rookie Jacob deGrom (1-5) again battled his season-long control problems in a long first inning. The Braves, helped by two walks from deGrom, loaded the bases with no outs in the first. Atlanta was in danger of wasting the opportunity before Johnson lined the three-run double past Campbell at third base with two outs. After throwing 37 pitches in the first, deGrom didnt walk another batter or allow another run. He gave up three runs on six hits in five innings. "That first inning got me," deGrom said. "I think I was a little amped up, just trying to maybe overthrow it a little bit in the first. To recover from that was good. I wanted to at least get to five (innings)." Eric Young Jr. singled, stole second, advanced to third on a wild pitch and scored on Curtis Grandersons fly ball to left field in the fourth inning. Young reached on another single in the sixth before being picked off first base by Teheran. Teheran gave up a single to Juan Lagares and walked Granderson before striking out Campbell to end the sixth. Lagares had a one-out single off Anthony Vavaro in the eighth. Daniel Murphy hit a sharp grounder toward second base that Tommy La Stella caught while diving toward the bag. While on the ground, La Stella flipped the ball to Andrelton Simmons for the force out at second. La Stella started after leaving Tuesday nights game with a right foot that was bruised when he was hit by a pitch. NOTES: Gonzalez said the team will have a better estimate on a recovery period for Gattis when the success of Tuesdays epidural can be evaluated in about four days. Gonzalez said he has "not even entertained" the thought of Gattis playing left field when he returns to possibly take pressure off his back. ... The first-pitch temperature was 91 degrees, and Braves were allowed to report later than normal and take batting practice in the indoor cage "to let their bodies recharge a little bit." ... Both teams are off Thursday. The Mets open a home series against Texas on Friday night, and the Braves homestand continues with a weekend series against Arizona.

A third violation remains a lifetime ban.TAMPA, Fla. -- After losing home-ice advantage on the final day of the regular season, the Montreal Canadiens couldve found satisfaction in splitting the first two games at Tampa Bay Times Forum. Instead, they dominated the Lightning in a 4-1 victory in Game 2 on Friday night to take a two games to none stranglehold on the Atlantic Division semifinals. Even after hearing chants of "Ole, Ole, Ole" and knowing they were heading back to Bell Centre having accomplished everything they set out to do, the Habs werent glowing about their series lead. "Im not pleased until the series is over," defenceman P.K. Subban said. Montreal is halfway toward ending it and moving on, thanks to a second straight strong performance led by two goals from Rene Bourque and 26 saves by goaltender Carey Price. In the process, the Habs chased Anders Lindback out of the Lightning net and even caused the home team to hold a players-only meeting. In the visiting locker-room, there was no need for such a scene because the Habs showed on the ice that theyre on the same page and cruising along. "I think were really focused about the work we have to do," coach Michel Therrien said. "When we approach every game, we dont want to try to see the end result. Our focus, its been like that every game. ... I like the composure of that team, I like the leadership of that team." Therrien also liked how his team reacted to adjustments made by Tampa Bay and how it managed the puck in Game 2. The kind of errors that led to scoring chances against Wednesday night were just about gone. "Its such a fine line in the difference between the games and for us its just been consistent play and were sticking to our systems and were limiting the mistakes," said forward Brendan Gallagher, who scored Montreals third goal of the night. "We just felt comfortable today. We were able to execute our game plan as well as we wanted to and we got rewarded." Sticking to the game plan meant the Habs were able to stay in their comfort zone while taking the Lightning out of theirs. While Tampa Bay had some jump at the start and forced Price to make a handful of early saves, this young group that was playing without Ondrej Palat couldnt cash in before Montreal poured it on. "Nobody likes to be suffocated," Subban said. "Its pretty frustrating if you got a bag over your head and you cant breathe. Its not the best feeling the world. "It is tough when you turn up the ice as a defenceman and you see three forwards, two defencemen and Carey Price standing in the net." Gallagher saw David Desharnais power-play goal 2:34 into the second period as the games turning point. That snapped an 0-for-27 power-play drought dating to March 25. "Thats a great lift for the hockey club," Gallagher said. "It got us going, and we didnt look back from there." From there, Bourque recorded his first multi-goal game since Feb. 2, 2013, scoring his first on a highlight-reel move by blowing past Eric Brewer, undressing Sami Salo and evading Lindbacks poke check. "It was nice to get the puck with speed and make a move there," Bourque said, crediting Thomas Vanek for the no-look pass. "Im not about style points." Price racked up style points making his best save of the night 15:31 into the second on Gaspe, Que., native Cedric Paquette. Paquette fired a loosee puck from the top of the crease, and Price managed to get his left pad on it. Alex Mack Jersey. "I was just kind of scrambling," Price said. "It was just desperation. I cant remember what exactly happened or how it wound up there." That was one of only a handful of difficult saves Price had to make because the play in front of him was stepped up from Game 1. The Lightning limited their blunders, too, but they still found themselves staring at a 2-0 series deficit. "Were not playing well," captain Steven Stamkos said. "Were not going to sugar-coat anything. We have a lot better than these first two games. Its turnovers, its compete level, but we know whats in here. We know we have this group. "People can make excuses. Im not going to sit here and make excuses. Were going to man up and realize we have more to offer." Lightning players held a players-only meeting after the loss, something that coach Jon Cooper fully supported. "When youve got a team that cares, they take it upon themselves," Cooper said. "They understand the magnitude of whats gone on and for them to sit down and gather their thoughts about it, thats why I like that group of guys. "They know whats at hand here, though, and they know theyve got more in them. For them to sit around and talk about, its good for them." Plenty will be talked about before Game 3 Sunday in Montreal, about the Lightning coming back hard with their hopes on the line. Cooper hinted that theyll go back to Lindback even after he pulled him for Kristers Gudlevskis after Bourques second of the night at the 14:39 mark of the third. No matter whos in net for Tampa Bay, the Habs are expecting the Lightnings best. "This is a team thats been resilient all year, theyve got lots of character on that side," Subban said of the Lightning. "Theres no shortage of us knowing how important these games are going back home. "Were not focusing on what the series is. As far as were concerned, our mentality is that the series is 0-0 going back home." Its not 0-0, but Cooper thinks theres still plenty of pressure on the Habs. "Im sure theyre tickled pink to go up 2-zip, but theyve still got to win games," he said. "Theyve got to go home and deliver." Six players who were in Montreal uniforms Friday night were part of the 2011 team that didnt deliver in this situation. Three years ago the Habs took a two games to none lead on the Bruins, winning both games in Boston, before losing the first-round series in seven. That was on Subbans mind after winning Game 2, but he and his teammates are armed with that memory now. "You go deeper and deeper in these types of series the games get more and more important," Subban said. "Were going to have to be ready." NOTES -- Desharnais goal was his first in the Stanley Cup playoffs, while Max Paciorettys secondary assist was his first career playoff point. ... Therrien went with the same lineup from Game 1, while Cooper replaced injured forward Ondrej Palat with defenceman Andrej Sustr. Tampa Bay went with 11 forwards and seven defencemen, a look they featured 40 times in the regular season. ... Lightning forward J.T. Brown left the game briefly in the second period after taking a big hit in front of the bench from Alexei Emelin. He returned to the bench not long after and was back on the ice early in the third.
