What more can we say about Tyler Johnson that hasn't been said? Probably not a lot. A lot has been said, and it's all good, and it's all deserved.
He's a star for the Tampa Bay Lightning. Simple as that. Enough said. He's a star. He proved it in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Final with his hat trick in a 6-2 win against the New York Rangers that evened the best-of-7 series at 1-1.
Johnson scored shorthanded on a great play. He scored on a 4-on-3 power play. He scored on even strength. He did it all. He does it all.
