Rick Nash added a power-play goal against Andrei Vasilevskiy and Brassard had an empty-netter with 1:41 to go to complete his hat trick.

Lundqvist gave up up a pair of third-period goals to Nikita Kucherov .

Brassard scored on New York's first shot of this game at 3:36 and Yandle's second goal of the playoffs made it 2-0 at 15:30. Ryan Callahan trimmed Lightning's deficit to 2-1 at 17:20 of the first.
