On the NHL Stanley Cup Finals podcast with Matt:
#1 The Tampa Bay Lightning Victor Hedman in his post game interview on Friday night said of the Lightning’s 6-3 win over the Montreal Canadiens not so fast as Tampa Bay is now up 3-0 he said what happened in the bubble winning it all last year was great but saying “were not there yet”
#2 The Lightning wasted no time scoring twice in each of the early parts of the first and second periods
#3 The Lightning’s Tyler Johnson who moved up to the second line from the fourth line after Alex Killorn was out with an injury scored twice for the second time in the Finals.
#4 Hedman and Nikita Kurcherov both scored a goal and an assist and Jan Rutta and Blake Coleman both had empty netters and goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 32 shots talk about team work.
#5 Game 4 is set for Monday night at the Belle Centre and the Canadiens will no doubt be working hard on a few things during their morning skates between now and then what are some of the thing they need to improve on to win game 4 and avoid a sweep in the Finals.
