With a dramatic second-period swing, the Lightning blitzed Colorado to win Game 3 of their Stanley Cup Final at Amalie Arena.
The Bolts scored four times in that second period en route to a 6-2 victory that was all but a must-win game for Tampa Bay. But instead of being on the brink of elimination after three games, the Lightning can tie the series Thursday if they can get another home-ice win.
It won’t be easy.
The Bolts could be without winger Nikita Kucherov, who was injured late in the game and did not return. His status Thursday is unclear.
