Lightning charge past Devils, into 2nd round

Devils coach on elimination test ‘We gotta learn through winning

After a 4-1 loss in Game 4 on Thursday, the Blue Jackets responded with their best game of the series. "It was fought from the drop of the puck to the end". Goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy, a finalist for the Vezina Trophy, made 159 saves on 169 shots with a 2.01 goals-against average and.941 save percentage. The Lightning received point-per-game production from Nikita Kucherov (1o points), Steven Stamkos (6 points) and Alex Killorn (5 points), but they also had 14 different players pick up a point during the series.

Without a doubt, Kucherov was the star player of the series.

Backstrom scored two goals, including the overtime victor against the Blue Jackets in Game 5. "He's the type of offensive player you need to have success if you're going to have a chance to win the Stanley Cup". "I think we played well defensively, and teams that play well defensively move forward".

The Tampa Bay Lightning came into this series struggling a bit as they had lost five of their final eight games of the regular season, but they are now just one win away from moving on to the 2nd round. The 19-year-old defenseman - a top prospect of the Montreal Canadiens before landing in Tampa Bay as part of the Jonathan Drouin trade before the season - laced a bullet past Schneider for his first-ever career playoff goal with just under 12 minutes left in the opening period.

Frederik Andersen stopped 42 shots for Toronto, which returns home for Game 6 on Monday. Will Butcher and Taylor Hall assisted on the goal for New Jersey, which played without injured defenseman Sami Vatanen. Once the first round of the playoffs began the weak spots of the Devils power play and penalty kill units became apparent. repeatedly during the series, the Lightning special teams were able to score on the power play when given the chance. They'll need to shrug off the disappointing ending and rebound again, but know how evenly matched these teams are after four of the first five games went to overtime.

Pochettino did not criticise any of his players and instead focused on the difficulty of competing with the club's major rivals. And we are in the process of the last four years, there was the challenge to try to be competitive in the top four.

The New Jersey Devils scored with about three minutes to go in the third period, while down two goals to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Devils took too many penalties and could not take advantage when given some power-play opportunities.

"We have to stay out of the box better than we did tonight", Hynes said. I thought Cory was fantastic. They did win game three of this series by a score of 5-2, but then followed that up with that 3-1 defeat in game four. So, this season was great, we just all wished it would have ended with a much better game for fans. The Devils also played without RW Stefan Noesen, who was scratched with a lower-body injury. Kinkaid is 2-4 in six career games against the Lightning and he has allowed 3.33 gpg in those games. "There's no easy teams in the playoffs", Kucherov said.

The Toronto Maple Leafs, who won Game 3, are looking to stave off elimination but have been outscored 17-9 by their rival Boston Bruins.
