Devils beat Lightning 5-2 in series shift to New Jersey ice


While all four games on Tuesday night's schedule were pure insanity, one stood out, that being game three between the Devils and Lightning, in Newark, NJ, a hockey hotbed.

Hall passed to Will Butcher at the right point during a 5-on-3, and the rookie defenseman scored his first playoff goal, shooting it past a screened Vasilevskiy to tie it 2-2 at 4:03.

Taylor Hall was trending, Tuesday morning, after he had a goal and two assists in New Jersey's 5-2 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning, Monday night.

The Atlantic Division champions scored three times in a 2:47 span in the second period, and the reeling Devils pulled goalie Keith Kinkaid after Killorn's third goal in two games made it 5-1 with 6:48 remaining in the period.

Hall made a big-time statement in the regular season by netting a career-high 93 points in 76 games, and based on his postseason showing so far, he doesn't appear ready to slow down. "You've got to win the game. This is something I think he takes a lot of pride in was not only getting us to the playoffs, but it's one of those things when you look at our team, you can ask, 'Are they just happy to be in the playoffs, or are they just happy to get in?'" Devils coach John Hynes said. "They got one and then they got momentum".

Adding some intrigue to who may, or may not, play in Game 3 is that the Devils signed 2016 third-round pick Joey Anderson to an entry-level contract on Sunday.

Butcher tied the game after the Lightning were whistled for too many men on the ice.

New Jersey wasn't done yet, but Tampa Bay had an answer first.

Stamkos scored Tampa Bay's second power-play goal 38 seconds into the third period to give the Lightning the lead back, but New Jersey responded. Noesen buried the sweet feed, the Devils had their first lead of the entire series and that first win was a couple of empty-net goals and one major scrum away from being finalized. Logan Couture had a goal and two assists, Joe Pavelski, Evander Kane and Timo Meier scored power-play goals in the third period, for the Sharks, who have outscored the Ducks 14-3 through the first three games of the first-round series. Kucherov sent a pass from behind the goal line that Killorn redirected into the net before Schneider could move. Why the fans chanted "M-V-P!" following his goal at 12:24 of the second period which tied the game, 1-1? The puck was misplayed by the Lightning and went to Hall between the circles and he ripped a shot past Vasilevskiy. He hit the crossbar on a first-period breakaway. Lightning RW Ryan Callahan left the game late in the second period with an upper body injury and did not return.

However, the tone of this game, and what is now going to be the tone for the upcoming Game 4, was set in the third period. Killorn and Johnson each skated in their 50th career playoff game. Mirco Mueller also sat as New Jersey dressed six defencemen instead of seven used in Game 2.
