Welcome to, the official site of the National Hockey LeagueBienvenue à , le site officiel de la Ligue nationale de hockeyДобро пожаловать на, официальный сайт Национальной хоккейной лигиTervetuloa NHL:n viralliselle nettisivustolle NHL.comiinVälkommen till, NHL:s officiella web-sidaVítejte na, oficiálních stránkách National Hockey LeagueVitajte na, oficiálnych stránkach National Hockey LeagueWillkommen auf, der offiziellen Seite der National Hockey LeagueBienvenido a, el sitio oficial de la National Hockey LeagueThe Tampa Bay Lightning followed the recipe and cooked up a win to get even with the New York Islanders in the Stanley Cup Semifinals."It was a team effort," Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman said of the 4-2 home victory in Game 2 on Tuesday. The Islanders hadn't been on the penalty kill more than three times in any of their first 13 playoff games.The Lightning didn't score on the first three power plays, but finally cashed in when Hedman scored at 9:17 of the third period to make it 4-1. Islanders coverage] Getting goals from defensemen was big, both on the scoreboard and for morale.The Lightning had no goals from defensemen in their first 12 playoff games after getting 25 in 56 games during the regular season and 17 in 25 games in the 2020 postseason.Jan Rutta changed that in the third period, putting a slap shot from the right point over goalie Semyon Varlamov's blocker and into the top left corner of the net at 2:16 to give the Lightning a 3-1 lead. "We wanted to put an end to that tonight and what better way than top shelf by 'Roots'."Vasilevskiy came up big when needed to, particularly with his left-pad save on a point-blank shot from Anthony Beauvillier with eight seconds remaining in the second period to maintain a 2-1 lead."You need your guy back there to bail you out when you break down and he sure did that," Cooper said.Still, Vasilevskiy was only part of it, as he's supposed to be when the Lightning are following the recipe."But we can't sit here and say, 'OK, we got them in Game 2, we're going to get them in Game 3,' " Cooper said.
