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.
