Another wild game in this series ended with a 6-5 scoreline and Ryan Lomberg the hero for the Panthers. The overtime winner kept Florida from facing elimination on Saturday and cut Tampa Bay’s series lead to 2-1.
“You’re not going to win 16 games and not lose any,” said Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman. “It’s a process. We’re obviously not happy with the way we played the third period, but you’re going to get ups and downs during a playoff series and it’s how you respond as a group.”
Through three games, the Panthers have found holes in Andrei Vasilevskiy. The Lightning goaltender has allowed 11 goals through three games. Last postseason he did not allow more than 12 in any of Tampa’s series through their run to the Stanley Cup.
