SERGACHEV HOLDS UP THE SENATORS MOMENTARILY. NOW TO COLIN WHITE. PLACE FOR THE ANGLE, FIRING, DIRECTED WIDE BY COBURN. THEY SLIP IT OUT IN FRONT, CAP BEHIND THE NET THERE AND THEY SCORE. MET DUCHENE GOT IT BACK FROM VASILEVSKIY AND READ HIM TO THE OPPOSITE POST TO OPEN THE SCORING AT 4:58. >>Brian: MET DUCHENE HAS GOT QUICK HANDS AND PLAYERS WILL TRY THIS ALL THE TIME. THEY REALLY GOT NOTHING TO LOSE. THEY COME UP FROM BEHIND THE NET, VASILEVSKIY HAS TO LOOK OVER ONE SHOULDER AND BY THE TIME HE REALIZES COMING OUT THE OTHER SIDE, HE JUST CAN’T QUITE GET THAT LEG OVER. PUCK IS DEFLECTED WIDE. WATCH VASILEVSKIY. HE’S DOWN INTO HIS RIGHT. NOW QUICKLY OFF THE BACK OF THE NET AND SEE HIM ALSO THAT MOVE AND GETTING HIS STICK CUT IN SERGACHEV’S LEGS, THAT WAS THE DIFFERENCE MAKER IN HIM BEING ABLE TO GET OVER. HAD HE NOT BEEN REACHING SO FAR AROUND THE NET AND THEN COMING BACK WITH THE STICK THROUGH THE LEGS OF SERGACHEV, HE WOULD’VE BEEN ABLE TO GET ACROSS BECAUSE HE’S GOT LONG LEGS AND INCREDIBLY QUICK LEGS. THIS TIME AROUND IT DIDN’T WORK AND DUCHENE SCORES. >>Rick: LIGHTNING ALWAYS TALK ABOUT GETTING THAT FIRST GOAL, GETTING OFF TO THE GOOD START. THIS IS THE SEVENTH TIME IN EIGHT GAMES THEY’VE ALLOWED THE FIRST GOAL. HOWEVER, ON THE SEASON, THEIR RECORD, 6-2 WHEN THEY ALLOW THAT FIRST GOAL. COLIN WHITE GETS THE ONLY ASSIST ON THE GOAL BY DUCHENE. >>Brian: AT THIS POINT YOU WOULD THINK THEY PRACTICE IT. LIKE LET’S PRETEND THAT WE’RE DOWN A GOAL BEFORE WE START PLAYING, IN PRACTICE. OF COURSE THEY DON’T DO THAT. IT’S COMING A LITTLE TOO OFTEN, FOR SURE. THE MORE TIMES YOU DO IT, SOMETIMES IT IS NOT GOING TO WORK, BE CAREFUL. >>Rick: YOU’VE GOT TO BREAK FREE. OTTAWA HAD THAT 2-0 LEAD LAST WEEK IN THE GAME IN CANADA’S CAPITAL. >>Brian: LET’S GO BACK AND TAKE ANOTHER LOOK AND SEE WHAT ANDREI VASILEVSKIY’S ROLE WAS LIKE WHEN THAT GOAL WENT IN. WATCH VASILEVSKIY. HE’S GOING TO SWAT AT THE PUCK HERE IN A SECOND, RIGHT THERE. WATCH WHEN HE COMES BACK. THAT’S WHAT DISTRACTED HIM. HAD HE BEEN ABLE TO JUST SWEEP IT ACROSS, HE WOULD’VE BEEN ABLE TO GET THAT STICK WAY OVER QUICKLY AND EVEN HIS LEGS AND HELP SEAL OFF THAT POST. DUCHENE, WHETHER HE REALIZED IT OR NOT, WAS SMART ENOUGH AND QUICK ENOUGH TO TAKE ADVANTAGE. >>Rick: DUCHENE CAME IN, FOUR POINTS IN HIS LAST TWO GAMES. HAS ANOTHER ONE HERE AS BOEDKER IS FORCED TO DUMP IT IN. LEADING IT ALONG THE BOARDS, BOEDKER CHECKED AND THE LIGHTNING TAKE OVER AND KILL OR AND TO CENTER, A LITTLE CHIP AND CHARGE AROUND CHABOT, WHO WILL TAKE ON THE MELLOW AND TAKES IT RIGHT TO THE BOARDS. LIGHTNING HOLDING IT IN. HANDS IT OFF, JOSEPH BACK TO KILL LAUREN. WASN’T QUITE READY FOR IT AS HE WAS TURNING. HANDS IT BEHIND AND IS TAKEN BY DEMELO. JOSEPH WITH IT. HE ENDS UP BLOWING IT DEAD. >>Rick: TWO SHOTS ON THE FIRST POWER PLAY OPPORTUNITY FOR THE LIGHTNING. MILLER WORKS BETWEEN KILL LAUREN AND KUCHEROV. STAMKOS BACK IN THE POINT POSITION ALONG WITH VICTOR HEDMAN AS THE PUCK IS BOUNCING DOWN ON VASILEVSKIY. HE HAD TO BE CAREFUL TO PLAY THAT ONE. DIDN’T HAVE THAT GLOVE DOWN LIKE THEY TEACH YOU AT BASEBALL CAMP. BUT THEY SCORE! HEDMAN ALL THE WAY! SLIDES IT IN, THE POWER-PLAY GOAL HAS TIDY THAT TWO. >>Brian: IN THE FIRST PERIOD I TALKED ABOUT VICTOR HEDMAN’S ABILITY TO BRING THE PUCK UP THE ICE. THIS PLAY STARTS WITH A NASTY BOUNCE. WATCH IT. IT’S A LIVE AND HAS TO BE FOUGHT OFF BY VASILEVSKIY. HE’LL GET AN ASSIST ON THIS PLAY. LOOK AT VICTOR HEDMAN, TURNS THE JETS ON. THEY’RE LOOKING FOR THE DROP PASS, HE KNOWS IT. HE’S GOT THE DEFENSE BACKED OFF. HE HAS ENOUGH OF A SEEM TO WORK FIFTH CAREER ASSIST AND? SHOOTS IT IN. HURRIED THERE BY GOURDE, LONG PASS TO STONE, NOW TO RYAN. LUGS THE PUCK IN, BACK TO STONE AND HE SHOOTS, HE FIRED A WIDE. VASILEVSKIY GOT KNOCKED DOWN OUT IN FRONT OF THE NET. DIDN’T HAVE A STICK. BRADY TKACHUK TRIED TO CURL IT IN FRONT. HE WAS WRAPPED UP BY KILLORN. KOEKKOEK PLAYING IT OFF THE GLASS. COMES NOW TO STONE. HE SHOOTS, SAVE, VASILEVSKIY LEANS OVER AND COVERS. PUCKS BACK SO CARLSON COULD GET A HEAD START. SO GOOD WITH THE PUCK, SKATING WITH IT, PASSING WITH IT. NOW IT’S DIFFERENT. HE’S GONE, YOU’VE GOT A LOT OF YOUNG GUYS AND THEY’RE CONTRIBUTING. >>Rick: HE SCORES. COBURN’S SHOT FLOATING TOWARD THE NET WITH JOSEPH COMING BY, REACHING FOR IT. WE’LL SEE WHO GETS IT. THE LIGHTNING NOW HAVE FORCED THEIR WAY IN FRONT, 3-2. LOOKS LIKE COBURN IS LEADING THE LINE. >>Brian: A LOT OF STICKS WERE WAVING AT IT, BUT A NICE JOB OF RETRIEVAL AGAIN. THAT’S KILLORN. COBURN JUST GETS IT AND MOVES IT TO THE MIDDLE OF THE ICE. IN FRONT, STONE GETS CONTROL, OUT OF THE BOX COMES McCORMICK, THREE-ON-ONE FOR THE SENATORS, THE PASTOR McCORMICK, SHOOTING, VASILEVSKIY GOT A PIECE OF THAT. GOURDE RACING BACK THE OTHER WAY, TRACKED DOWN BY PIATT. POINT GOT THE PUCK FROM THE ANGLE, FIRING, ANDERSON THE STOP, THE REBOUND SENT WIDE BY GOURDE. YANNI GOT IT BACK, KILLORN DRIFTING AROUND IN FRONT. THE SENATORS STEAL A PASS. WE TALK ABOUT CHABOT. HE COMES IN NUMBER FOUR IN THE SCORING RACE, THIRD IN ASSISTS, NOT JUST LEADING ALL DEFENSEMAN IN SCORING. ON THE CYCLE IS KILLORN. HANDS IT OFF, JOSEPH GOT IT, HE SHOOTS, HE SCORES! WHAT A SHOT BY MATHIEU JOSEPH. LIGHTNING HAVE SCORED FOUR IN A ROW FOR A 4-2 LEAD. >>Brian: WHEN YOU ARE THE HIGH MAN IN THE OFFENSE OF ZONE, HE’S HOPE HE STILL ON THE ICE. >>Rick: PAST EVERYBODY. KOEKKOEK SHOVELING IT AHEAD. STONE FINDS THE HANDLE, CLOSING IN, FEEDS IT ACROSS VASILEVSKIY, A SAVE ON RYAN. RYAN GOT HIM EARLY IN THE GAME AS HE’S HAD A COUPLE OF TIME SINCE. STAMKOS PUSHES IT IN. >>Brian: THE STONE, RYAN, DUCHENE COMBINATION HAS CREATED TERRIFIC PLAYS FOR OTTAWA, BOTH THEY GENERATE MORE CHANCES THAN ANY OTHER LINE. FINALLY TONIGHT, SIX POINTS. A BIG OUTBURST BY THE CIRELLI LINE. THEY’RE NOT DONE YET. >>Rick: WITH A SHOT, SAVE AND THAT ZALESKI WITH ACTION GOING ON BEHIND HIM. TANGLED UP WITH JOHNSON, STOP THERE, THE SHOT FROM THE POINT AND THEY SCORE! THAT’S JAMMED IN ON THE REBOUND. PLENTY OF TRAFFIC FOR THE SENATORS OUT IN FRONT AND THEY HAVE COME BACK TO CUT THAT LEAD ATTENDANCE AS ONE OF THE NEWEST NUMBERS OF THE HOCKEY HALL OF FAME. >>Rick: THEY SCORE. THE SHOT BY RYAN DEFLECTED IN WITH WHITE GOING BY THE NET, RIGHT OFF THE FACE-OFF, TO BEGIN THE POWER PLAY, AND OTTAWA HAS COME BACK TO TIE THIS GAME AT FOUR. >>Brian: I THINK A CHALK SCORED THIS ONE. I DON’T KNOW WHO WOULD HIT IN FRONT, MAYBE IT WAS WHITE AGAIN BUT THEY GET THE PUCK BACK TO THE POINT. YOU SEE WHY THEY GENERATE SO MANY POINTS AND SO MANY GOALS >>Rick: WITH THE PUCK IT’S BRAYDEN POINT. THE NUMBER THAT COUNTS, FOUR OF THE LIGHTNING, JOHNSON BACK TO POINT. DROP PASS PICKED OFF BY DINGELL AND HE’S GOT DUCHENE CUTTING THROUGH TO DINGELL, HE SCORES! RYAN DINGELL BLAZING DOWN THE LEFT SIDE, CONVERTS ON THE PASS AND FIRES IT HOME AND OTTAWA SCORE THREE IN A ROW, THEY LEAD ALEX KILLORN BLOWS A TIR ANOKD AYIS AFTER ALL OF THAT. JUST KNOCKED THE NET OFF. >>Rick: THE CROWD TRYING TO RALLY THE LIGHTNING HERE. ANGLED OFF THE END BOARDS, INTO THE GOALMOUTH AND COVERED BY VASILEVSKIY. HE WAS TRYING TO COVER IT AS HE BENT OVER TO HIS RIGHT BUT IT SLIPPED THROUGH INTO THE BLUE. >>Rick: SERGACHEV OVER LEADS KUCHEROV. BOROWIECKI GET IT OUT OF THE ZONE, NOW KUCHEROV TO STAMKOS. TO MILLER AND HE IS BUMPED BY BOROWIECKI, SIDE OF THE GOAL. FRONT HIS STICK WAS LOCKED UP BY KUCHEROV. 18 SECONDS REMAINING AND IT’S CENTERED IN FRONT. RIGHT ON THE SCENE, HE’LL FIRE AND SCORE. MARK STONE HAS MADE IT 6-4 WITH 11.5 TO PLAY. >>Brian: HE HAS BEEN THEIR BEST PLAYER ALL SEASON LONG. STONE IS TERRIFIC. HE’S BEEN A GREAT LEADER FOR THEM AND THEY’VE TRIED TO
