  • Columbus Blue Jackes v Tampa Bay Lightning- Game One

Losing Kucherov for a game is a big blow to Tampa, whose offense is not keeping pace with Columbus.

Tampa Bay Lightning (62-16-4, first in the Atlantic Division during the regular season) vs. After being down 3-0 in the first period, the Blue Jackets started to turn things around.

The NHL has suspended Tampa Bay Lightning's forward Nikita Kucherov for one game.

Chirping and trash talking are part of sports, and there's no doubt frustration set in for the Lightning, which stunningly fell into a 0-2 hole in this-best-of-seven series ("A five-alarm fire", as coach Jon Cooper put it).

Blue Jackets: 9-1-0, averaging 3.7 goals, 5.3 assists, 1.4 penalties and 3.1 penalty minutes while giving up 2.1 goals per game with a.923 save percentage.

After a scoreless first period, the Blue Jackets struck 1:44 into the second when Duchene was in the right place to score off a rebounded.

Speaking to reporters on Sunday, an agitated Kucherov briefly discussed his one-game suspension, stemming from a boarding incident with Columbus defenseman Markus Nutivaara.

The night was satisfying for Bobrovsky - he hasn't been great in the playoffs the last two seasons - and the Blue Jackets, who were 2-8 at Nationwide Arena in three previous post-season appearances.

But Victor Hedman didn't want anyone on the Blue Jackets to get too comfortable taking a two-game edge.

Columbus also got goals from Cam Atkinson, Zach Werenski, Riley Nash and Artemi Panarin. Oliver Bjorkstrand followed with a power-play goal, doubling the Blue Jackets lead.
