The Tampa Bay Lightning progressed to the Eastern Conference Finals on Monday by finishing four sweeps of the Florida Panthers with a 2-0 victory in Game 4.
Florida ended the regular season with the best record in the NHL and led the league in scoring, but scored just three goals in four games against the defending Stanley Cup champions. On Monday, the Panthers made 49 shots on goal, but couldn’t get past any of the Lightning goalkeepers. Andrei Vasilevskiy.
While the Lightning only had 25 shots on target, this team scored four times, although the first two goals were disallowed. The first ball was defeated after a lengthy review determined that play should have been blown when the ball bounced off the net above the board.
