Lightning dominate Maple Leafs to keep three-round hopes alive


The two-time defending champion Tampa Bay Lightning kept their triple-round hopes alive and the Toronto Maple Leafs suffered another disappointment in Game 7 with a 2-1 loss at home on Saturday night.

Trade delay acquisition Nick Paul scored twice and goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy, who allowed at least three goals in the first six games of the first-round series, was brilliant, making 30 saves to give the Lightning a ninth consecutive streak win.

But the Lightning also have an injury to worry about as they prepare to face the No. 1-seeded Florida Panthers in the second round.

Forward Brayden Point limped off the ice in the first period, unable to put weight on his leg after an awkward fall.
