We’ve got one matchup coming up tonight in the 2015 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs, and it’s sure to be a good one. While we’re waiting on that puck to hit the ice, let’s check out some of the notable players and situations out there in the league.
Steven Stamkos, C, Tampa Bay Lightning: The Lightning look pretty comfortable right now. They’re leading their second-round Stanley Cup Playoffs series against the Canadiens 2-0, taking the second road game by a tally of 6-2 yesterday.
Stamkos put up a goal and two assists, while Nikita Kucherov managed two goals. Alex Killorn posted two assists.
The Lightning scored on four straight power plays, which was a great sign of life from a team struggling in that area.
Game 3 is Wednesday in Tampa.
