The Tampa Bay Lightning have a long way to go to force a Game 7, especially as they hand the Detroit Red Wings some early power-play opportunities.
Even so, the Bolts have generated the start their fledgling offense really needed. It’s no surprise that Tyler Johnson scored the 1-0 goal, either, really:
Steven Stamkos still hasn’t scored a goal, but he probably isn’t too flummoxed by at least getting a point, as he assisted on Jason Garrison’s 2-0 tally:
Again, the Red Wings could come back here, especially considering their star power and home-ice advantage. This could be a nice confidence-booster for the Lightning, however.
