NHL Roundup: Four third-period goals key for Devils

MacKinnon's goal at 4:25 of the second period gave Colorado a 4-0 lead and prompted the Predators to pull Rinne in favor of backup Juuse Saros.

"There's a lot of good things in our game to like", Devils leading scorer Taylor Hall said. We're on each other's nerves. "They got one and then they got momentum".

Tampa Bay's second and third lines once again did most of the damage, with Point scoring at 12:15 of the first period and Killorn, Johnson and Kucherov adding goals during a three-minute stretch of the second to build a 4-1 lead.

Hall was the Devils' MVP during their stunning run from the worst team in the Eastern Conference to the postseason in a year, and he didn't disappoint in their biggest game of the season.

"You approach every game at a time, and we're just focused on the next one right now", said the Lightning's Tyler Johnson, who scored a goal in each of the first two games. "Hopefully I can parlay that into a good start tonight". "He is a guy we have to watch, know when he is out there and take away his space".

Butcher tied the game after the Lightning were whistled for too many men on the ice.

Logan Couture had a goal and two assists, Joe Pavelski, Evander Kane and Timo Meier scored power-play goals in the third period, for the Sharks, who have outscored the Ducks 14-3 through the first three games of the first-round series.

Vasilevskiy stopped 41 shots, while limiting the Devils to rookie Nico Hischier's unassisted goal in the opening period and Sami Vatanen's sixth career playoff goal late in the second before Blake Coleman's third-period tally trimmed Tampa Bay's lead to 5-3 with eight minutes left. It was his first goal of the series.

The roof almost blew off The Rock when Hall tied the game 1-1 at 12:24 of the second, and it was just what the Devils needed from their star after Alex Killorn's power-play goal put the Lightning ahead just 42 seconds into the second period, and it seemed like it was only a matter of time before Hall got on the scoresheet. Kucherov sent a pass from behind the goal line that Killorn redirected into the net before Schneider could move. Taylor Hall had a goal and two assists in the game. The puck was misplayed by the Lightning and went to Hall between the circles and he ripped a shot past Vasilevskiy. "You'd like to say you played the ideal game, but somebody else has a vote out there", coach Jon Cooper said Saturday after a 5-3 victory in Game 2 of the first-round matchup.

NOTES: Center J.T. Miller of the Lightning had to leave the ice late in the second period after sustaining a facial cut. Ryan Johansen had a second-period goal and Colton Sissons scored another in the third to make it 4-2. Devils captain Andy Greene had assists on goals by Noesen and Lovejoy.

Hynes also elected to go with six defensemen instead of the seven he used in Game 2.
