We’ve got three games down in the 2015 NHL Stanley Cup Finals, and Game 4 of this intense series is coming tomorrow. While we’re waiting, let’s check out some of the notable happenings across the league.
Cedric Paquette, C, Tampa Bay Lightning: Paquette got to play the hero in last night’s Game 3, posting the eventual game-winning goal at the 16:49 mark of the third. The Lightning were down 2-1 early in the third, but struck back quick to tie things up and eventually took the win 3-2 on Paquette’s goal. Ben Bishop made 36 saves in a solid effort in goal.
Tampa has regained control of the series 2-1 and will look to take a commanding lead tomorrow night at the UC.

It’s looking like the Bruins won’t be re-signing center Carl Soderberg this off-season. His current contract expires next month and there’s been no indication that the team wants to re-up.
Soderberg is coming off a 44-point season in 82 games during 2014-15, but thanks to a tight salary cap situation Boston will likely let him walk. He’ll see plenty of interest on the free agent market and shouldn’t have much trouble finding a new home and a big payday.
Good news for the budding Ottawa Senators. Goalie Robin Lehner is reportedly over his concussion symptoms and is heading into the off-season healthy.
All of that said, there’s no guarantee Lehner will be back with the Sens next year. He’s a prime candidate for a trade situation, due to Ottawa’s glut of goalies. Lehner has reportedly been drawing quite a bit of trade interest already, and if the Sens get a reasonable offer, they’ll pull the trigger without hesitation. It'll be a key situation for fans to keep an eye on in the coming weeks, as there's sure to be some movement at the position.
