The Tampa Bay Lightning won Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals 2–0 on Friday night on a game-sealing goal in the middle of the third period from Ondrej Palat.
The goal, which subdued the raucous Game 7 atmosphere of Madison Square Garden, came with under nine minutes left in the third when Lightning star Tyler Johnson sped up the right side of the ice with a burst of speed and assisted Palat across the ice.
New York, the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference, had forced a Game 7 on Tuesday when it defeated Tampa Bay 7–3 in Florida. The teams went back and forth all series, with no side winning two or more games in a row.
