Resilient Lightning, rebound to beat Bruins

Wednesday, 02 May, 2018

Jonathan Marchessault, William Karlsson and Reilly Smith - The Golden Knights' big line was at it again, leading the way to a 4-3 overtime win in Game Three at San Jose, lifting Vegas to a 2-1 series lead. Brayden Point fed rookie Yanni Gourde on the backdoor, and the Tampa Bay Lightning winger snapped it into the vacant net as Tuukka Rask still managed to get a skate blade on the puck. "They finished in (Game 2), you have to give them credit and we were on the wrong side of three or four calls tonight that impacted the game, but you have to play through that". "How could none of these be called at the most crucial part of a hockey game, in the playoffs?"

Tampa Bay brought it all tonight.

It looked like it was going to be an all Tampa Bay kind of period, but then the Bruins struck back for a goal of their own in the final few minutes. "That's what he's done all year."That is what Point did Monday in Game 2".

"You want to sweep every series, obviously".

Especially the Marchand no-call.

"By the time we got going we were fortunate we weren't out of it because we could have been with all the scoring chances they were generating".

McAvoy said no one should be surprised the series is tied headed to Boston for the next two games. Don't expect this to stop when the series shifts to Boston's barn.

It was a unusual play in the second period that proved to be the difference maker for the Tampa Bay Lightning. This one is only going to get worse (read: better) from here on out.

TAMPA - It was a game the Lightning had to have, and it came out like it was out to have it.

The earlier play he was referring to was a slashing penalty called on Torey Krug in the first period.

Despite this, the Lightning were not able to put Boston away until a last-minute goal on an empty net. "It's a penalty shot let alone a penalty".

Vasilevskiy is a Vezina Trophy candidate for a reason.

Challenged by coach Jon Cooper to compete harder and raise their level of play after dropping the opener of their second-round series against the Boston Bruins, the top seed in the Eastern Conference responded with a 4-2 victory in Game 2 of the best-of-seven matchup Monday night. The B's won't complain too much about splitting the first two games in Florida, but one can't help but wonder whether things would have played out a little differently had the officiating been a bit better in Game 2. They also continued to limit their turnovers allowing 13 in the series to Boston's 23.
