MIAMI, FLORIDA (Tampa Bay Lightning) – The Tampa Bay Lightning have performed well in Game 2s since making their first ever postseason appearance during the 1995-96 season.

The Bolts are 23-10 all-time in Game 2s and have won their last eight Game 2s. On the road, Tampa Bay holds an all-time record of 9-3 in Game 2s.

History is on the Bolts’ side, for now, as they will look to take a 2-0 series lead over the Florida Panthers on Thursday night.

The Lightning are 7-1 all-time in the Second Round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs and have won all five of their Second Round series under head coach Jon Cooper. Additionally, the Bolts have gone on to win 12 of 14 best-of-seven series when they have taken a 1-0 lead.

With all that being said, it’s just a 1-0 lead. There’s still a long way to go for Tampa Bay, but it was a great start on Tuesday night, especially with Brayden Point out of the lineup after suffering a lower-body injury in Game 7 of the Lightning’s opening-round series against Toronto.
