Ondej Palat Scores Go-Ahead Goal With 1:50 Left to Give Lightning 3rd Straight Win (3-1)

Flipping the script! The Lightning trailed the Rangers 2-0 in the Eastern Conference Finals, and they now lead the series 3-2 after three straight wins. Thursday’s Game 5 showdown in New York saw a 1-1 tie heading down the stretch before Ondrej Palat redirected a Mikhail Sergachev shot for the go-ahead goal with 1:50 left in the game. Brandon Hagel added the insurance goal on an open net. The Lightning are back in the driver’s seat and one game away from going back to their third straight Stanley Cup Finals. We’re heading back to Tampa for Game 6 and a potential close-out. TBL Leads Series (3-2)
