Series Updates for Friday, April 21st

NHL scores were tiled on Thursday, as the Rangers, Maple Leafs and Golden Knights all skated away with decisive victories, but there was drama at the end, as the defending Stanley Cup champions, the Colorado Avalanche, erased a two-goal deficit and won the game 3-2 to even the series at one game a piece.

Toronto Maple Leafs tie series 1-1

Toronto totally flipped the script after their embarrassing loss in Game 1, dominating Game 2 and beating the Lightning. Tampa Bay’s defense corps was missing two key pieces, Victor Hedman and Erik Cernak, and the Maple Leafs took advantage, abusing the Lightning on the forecheck.

The Maple Leafs dominated the game from start to finish, leading 6-1 after 40 minutes, and won 7-2. The series now shifts back to Tampa Bay, and it’s obvious that the Lightning’s chances of winning the next two games will be impacted significantly by whether Hedman and/or Cernak are able to play.
