Tampa Bay Lightning
Tampa Bay fights desperately to keep the chances of another Stanley Cup. The wards of John Cooper have played in the last three final series of the playoffs, but now they risk failing unusually early. In the first game with Toronto, the Southerners got a victory – 7:2, but they could not achieve success. On the contrary, the Lightning allowed three consecutive defeats – 2:7, 3:4, and 4:5, and in two cases, there was overtime. The day before, Tampa Bay could have already gone on vacation, having missed the first.
Toronto Maple Leafs
Toronto is incredibly close to overcoming the first round of the Stanley Cup for the first time in 19 years. In recent years, the Maple Leafs have repeatedly won in three games of the Eastern Conference quarterfinals. All this led to defeats and final relegation. And now Sheldon Keogh's wards played superbly until the fifth game, winning three consecutive games after losing in the first meeting. One step away from reaching the second round, the blue whites again had problems, so they lost the day before to Tampa Bay - 2:4.
