Hey, didn’t you used to be The Triplets?
Frankly, it’s good to see you again.
The Triplets – the Tampa Bay Lightning’s line of Tyler Johnson, Ondrej Palat and Nikita Kucherov, couldn’t have picked a better time to show back up Wednesday night. At the time, it was the third period, and the Bolts trailed the Montreal Canadiens 3-1, and Carey Price was in goal.
None of it mattered. The Bolts charged from behind to win, 4-1. Johnson scored twice. Palat and Victor Hedman also scored for Tampa Bay.
Shea Weber, Alexander Radulov and Chris Terry scored for the Canadiens, who have lost three in a row. Price had 26 saves.
Tampa Bay is home tonight against Toronto.
