He played with the junior Drummondville Rangers and was drafted by the Detroit Red Wings in the 3rd round, 40th overall, in the 1970 NHL Amateur Draft. The Wings placed him with the Port Huron Flags of the International Hockey League in 1970-71. The Montreal Canadiens claimed him in the reverse draft in 1971.
He is best known for scoring the winning goal in overtime of game 7 of the 1979 Stanley Cup Semi-Finals against the Boston Bruins, the culmination of an exciting game most memorable for a career-damaging coaching error by Don Cherry with two minutes left in regulation. Lambert won four consecutive Stanley Cups with the Habs from 1976 to 1979.
