Lightning beats Islanders behind backup goalie Andrej Vasilevskiy

in Sports/Top Headlines by

On the scoreboard, the Tampa Bay Lightning was still in charge. On the ice, it must not have felt that way. It was in the second period, and suddenly, the lead felt wobbly. The New York Islanders awoke, and for once, they flashed a little fight.

The noise will start when he enters the building. It will continue through warmups. It will linger until game time. Brian Boyle of the Tampa Bay Lightning has become public enemy No. 1. And furthermore, boo. Oh, he wasn’t guilty of a cheap shot. Even the NHL shrugged when it saw footage of his hit on Thomas Hickey in Game Three.

It doesn’t matter that they backed into playoffs. The way things are going for the Tampa Bay Lightning, they’re happy to be there at all.
