Last year’s Presidents’ Trophy winners are still looking to wash the bad taste out of their mouths. The white-hot Lightning seemed invincible...until they ran into a feisty Columbus squad in the first round of the 2019 playoffs.
Tampa Bay Lightning
The Lightning scored the game-winning goal against Pittsburgh in the final seconds of their game on Wednesday evening. They have had a few days off to rest and will be ready to go tonight.
Steven Stamkos leads the Lightning in points with 10 (4 goals, 6 assists). Nikita Kucherov has 9 points (3 goals, 6 assists), and perennial Norris Trophy contender Victor Hedman has 8 points (2 goals, 6 assists).
