The Tampa Bay Lightning, fighting for their fourth consecutive Stanley Cup Final and third cup in four years, delivered an upset to the Toronto Maple Leafs Tuesday night on the Canadian team’s home ice.
The Lightning won 7-3 in a game that saw plenty of power play goals and a controversial blow to Erik Cernak’s head.
The Lightning entered the second period with a three-goal lead. The Leafs briefly made a game of it with back-to-back power play goals before the Lightning answered with three goals of their own.
Game two remains in Toronto this Thursday at 7 p.m.
