Goal of the Night - Nikita Kucherov

Nikita Kucherov dances around the Maple Leafs defense and fires a wrister that beats Frederik Andersen to give the Lightning a 2-1 lead.

What they said after the game: 

"We had to win it, we knew that," Point said. "I thought we worked hard, I thought we spent a lot of time in their end pressuring them. We did a good job defending as well. We had to win it and I think we played like it."

"You've got to give a lot of credit to our penalty kill," Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper said. "That was four straight minutes to a really good power play and we really didn't give them too much. That was a big boost for us; it was a springboard for us for the rest of the game."
