Tampa Bay Lightning Beat New Jersey Devils in Five Games

Saturday afternoon the Tampa Bay Lightning put the final nail in the New Jersey Devils hopes of making it out of the first round. The offensive threats of the NHL best record Lightning proved to be too much for the wild card Devils. Cory Schneider stood on his head for the first two periods. With the Lightning on multiple power plays to end the second and to start the third Schneider fended off shot after shot to hold Tampa to a 1-0 lead. The lead increased to 2-0 late in the third period on another Nikita Kucherov goal. Despite that, the Devils powered one in after pulling the goalie to pull...

Johnson Is the Lightning’s Playoff Hero

His relentless play alongside Brayden Point and longtime linemate Ondrej Palat helped to shut down the New Jersey Devils in Game 1, propelling the team to a win.

Highlights: Bruins beat Lightning 4-2 and take over 1st in Eastern Conference!

You can breathe now Bruins fans. What a battle! 1st Period: The game started with all sorts of uncertainty over who would and who wouldn’t play.

Immediately the game started with big hits and a heavy feel to it with both teams knowing the stakes. The Bruins out shot the Lightning for majority of play before Brayden Point was called for holding halfway through the 1st. Despite the Lightning’s penalty kill being among the worst statistically,...
