Lightning v. Hurricanes – Bolts Calm the Canes to Advance

#3 Tampa Bay Lightning v. #1 Carolina Hurricanes – Game 5
Lightning Leads Series 3-1

Game Recap by Aryan Weisenfeld:

In what was a surprising first period, no one scored. But Tampa got the scoring started in the second with a goal by Brayden Point, and a nifty one at that while on the powerplay.

The Lightning took a 1-0 lead into the third when Ross Colton put the game out of reach and give the Lightning the 2-0 victory.

Tampa would go on to win the series 4-1 to advance to the semi finals.
