EASTERN CONFERENCE FINAL


THE SERIES: LIGHTNING LEAD 2-1

After dropping the opening game of the series, the Tampa Bay Lightning have fired back with two consecutive victories, combining for 12 goals in their two wins.

It all started in Game 2 when undrafted phenom Tyler Johnson scored one of the rarest of goals - a 5-on-3 shorthanded marker. Johnson's goal woke up Tampa Bay's offense, and sucked the life out of the Rangers.

WESTERN CONFERENCE FINAL


THE SERIES: TIED 1-1

After the Ducks won the opening game of the series, they played a marathon of a Game 2 - which was both the longest game in Blackhawks history and the longest ever played at the Honda Center.

The game went to three overtimes, but Chicago's Andrew Shaw thought he had ended the affair in the second overtime.
