It was the 27-year-old Austrian’s first goal since the first round of the playoffs, and it could not have come at a better time. The tally halted the Lightning’s comeback attempt; Tampa Bay had knotted the score in the second period after falling behind 3-1 in the first.

Colorado improved to 4-1 in overtime games this postseason with the victory. The only loss came in Game 5 of the second-round series vs. the Blues. 

The Lightning have lost back-to-back games just once in the last three postseasons. The two defeats in a row came last round against the Rangers, when New York opened the series with a 2-0 lead before Tampa Bay ripped off four in a row. The Lightning are aiming to avoid having to clear that obstacle again.
