Kucherov broke a 1-all tie with 4:58 left in the period. Kucherov collected the loose puck right in front and put it high into the net for his third goal of the series. Stamkos fed Kucherov entering the zone and he found Miller on the left side for a shot over Schneider's shoulder.

Joel Embiid Listed As Doubtful For 76ers' Game 3

Alex Killorn got the first penalty at 7:47 with a hook and 25 seconds later Cedric Paquette tripped Taylor Hall.

NOTES: Lightning D Ryan McDonagh appeared in his 100th National Hockey League playoff game. There were no lineup changes for Game 4.

Kyle Palmieri opened the scoring at 8:23 with a five-on-three power-play goal, marking the second consecutive game the Devils cashed in on a five-on-three. Devils in power play. Their never-quit work ethic has allowed them to make games closer than many expected.
