Tory Krug Drills Tyler Johnson's Head Into Ice [Fight]
Torey Krug and Tyler Johnson dropped the gloves at one end while Brayden Point scored at the other during the Lightning's Slaughter of the Bruins.
The Lightning strolled to a 7-1 victory over the Boston Bruins on Wednesday night in Toronto, giving Tampa Bay a 2-1 lead in an Eastern Conference semifinal series.
After an evenly played start, the Lightning scored a pair of goals 15 seconds apart. Ondrej Palat opened the scoring with Tampa Bay's first power-play goal of the playoffs, in the 17th opportunity, when he one-timed a shot from just inside the right circle at 12:46 of the first period.
Moments later Yanni Gourde doubled the lead. Gourde cut down the wing and zipped to the middle after a linesman collided with defender Jeremy Lauzon before waiting Bruins goalie Jaroslav Halak to commit and lifting a shot over him.
It was Sergachev's turn to net a power-play goal early in the second period. Kucherov took the puck low before sending a pass to the high slot for Sergachev to blast a one-timer 2:14 into the middle frame.
Marchand gave his team life with a power-play goal 4:56 into the period, but it was all for not as the Lightning quickly quelled the attempted comback.
Killorn restored Tampa Bay's three-goal lead by pouncing on the rebound at 8:35 of the second period. After Point extended the lead when he converted a breakaway deke with 4:37 remaining in the second period, Killorn potted his second of the game with 1:59 left to make it a 6-1 game and finish off a dominating period. Kucherov converted an easy tap-in just 3:58 into the third period, and Tampa Bay coasted to victory.
