NHL Update: Lightning Look To “Strike” A Semi-Final Berth

May 8, 2016

The Tampa Bay Lightning, after two overtime victories at the Brooklyn home of the New York Islanders in games three and four, will try to advance to their second straight NHL semi-final series and fourth in team history, with a home win this afternoon.

In both overtime victories, the great goal scorer Nikita Kucherov tied the game for trailing Tampa Bay in the third period, the game 3 tying goal in the last minute of regulation time.

Last year after winning their second semi-final in 3 tries, the Lightning lost to the Chicago Blackhawks in 6 games in the Stanley Cup final series.

Tampa Bay won it all in 2004, winning in 7 games vs the Calgary Flames, while in 2011, the Boston Bruins after “7 ing” the Lightning in the semis, went on to do the same (win the series in 7 games), vs the Vancouver Canucks and win their first title in 39 years.
