Lightning’s Bogosian, Coleman combine for one of the best goals of NHL Playoffs

1 Comment

While we’ve seen Blake Coleman score some highlight-reel goals, Zach Bogosian is not one of the Lightning players you’d expect to factor into a beauty. Yet, Bogosian and Coleman absolutely did that for the 1-1 goal in Game 2 of Lightning – Bruins. (The Lightning ended up winning Game 2 by a score of 4-3 [OT].)

Again, the most surprising part was seeing Bogosian deke and dangle around Torey Krug and the Bruins to set this play up. That said, Coleman made a great diving play to actually score the goal. You can watch that tremendous tally in the video above this post’s headline.

Interestingly, Bogosian was on the wrong end of surprising moments, too. His stick breaking on a shot helped open the door for the Bruins’ 1-0 goal:

The Lightning have been putting together a better effort to try to tie this series, and that Bogosian – Coleman goal could end up being crucial.
