Remember when eight goals seemed like a lot in the Tampa Bay Lightning’s Game 2 win against the New York Rangers? The two teams have already combined for 10 tallies tonight, and Game 3 will require one more to determine a winner.
Ryan McDonagh tied the game up early in the third period, while Ondrej Palat scored his second goal of the contest to give the Lightning a 5-4 lead with a little less than six minutes remaining. Having 5:55 seemed like ample time in a game like this … and it turns out that it was.
Dan Boyle’s aggressiveness paid off, as he crashed the net for the 5-5 goal against the team he once won a Stanley Cup with:
Both goalies are struggling … but you never know when the next marathon OT epic might come. Either way, after all of this, next goal wins.
