With early goals from 4 players the Tampa Bay lightning showed depth the likes of which Taylor Hall and the New Jersey Devils just couldn't contend with.

The Tampa Bay Lightnings offence is rolling along dangerous as usual. With 10 goals through the first 2 games of the series and a power play that went 2 for 3 on the day, the depth of the Tampa Bay Lightning is causing all sorts of problems for the New Jersey Devils. Despite these problems the Devils are shooting the puck well, and really started to out shoot the Lightning down the stretch 44-25. The Devils will need to show up for Game 3 with the same kind of energy they showed down the stretch if they are to have any hope of getting back into this series. Final Score: Tampa Bay Lightning 5, New Jersey Devils 3, Tampa Bay Lightning Lead Series (2-0)

Nikita Kucherov set the tone with 2 goals and an assist as the Tampa Bay Lighting were just too much for the Devils in game 4. Kyle Palmieri opened the scoring with a 5 on 3 power play goal but that was it for offence form the Devils. J.T Miller and Kucherov would  each score in the first to give Tampa a 1 goal lead that they would hold on to for much of the game. Kucherov would put the Devils away with an empty netter late in the third securing the win and putting the Lightning up 2 heading back to Tampa.  Final Score: Tampa Bay Lightning 3, New Jersey Devils 1, Tampa Bay Lightning Lead Series (3-1)

From there Nikita Kucherov would find the back of the net at 12:27 of the third. The Devil could get little going except for a late Kyle Palieri shot that was tipped by Patrick Maroon at the 3:00 mark. But that would be all she wrote for the New Jersey Devils as The Lightning would go on to grab the empty netter and eliminate the Devils from the series   Final Score: Tampa Bay Lightning 3, New Jersey Devils 1, Tampa Bay Lightning WIN Series (4-1)
