Series tied 2-2, Game 5 set for Thursday in New York

TAMPA BAY, FLORIDA (Tampa Bay Lightning) – When the Lightning left Madison Square Garden last week, they were looking up at a 2-0 hole and facing a pair of make-or-break games on home ice. After taking care of business in Tampa, however, the Bolts will return for a Game 5 tied at two games apiece and with momentum firmly on their side.

Led by a stellar 33-save performance from Andrei Vasilevskiy, the Bolts rolled to a 4-1 victory over the Rangers in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final at AMALIE Arena on Tuesday.

Pat Maroon got the scoring started less than three minutes into the game when he swatted home a rebound. Nikita Kucherov and Steven Stamkos followed up in the second and third periods to provide the insurance before Ondrej Palat put the game out of reach with an empty netter just before time expired.

With New York’s lone goal coming on the power play late in the third, Vasilevskiy has now gone two-straight games without allowing an even strength goal.

Game 5 is set for Thursday night back at Madison Square Garden with puck drop scheduled for 8 p.m. ET.
