The GIST: Thanks to the NHL’s lack of genuine support last night, there were still a few playoff games to watch. Here are a few highlights from the night.

“From downtown!”: The Philadelphia Flyers tied up their series against the New York Islanders yesterday afternoon, with an overtime goal for the ages from Phil Myers to close out Game 2.

Point for Point: It’s hard to choose a favorite goal when the Tampa Bay Lightning score seven of them, but we’ll go with this beauty of breakaway from Brayden Point. The Lightning obviously took this one 7–1 against the Boston Bruins.

“I don’t think we should be here”: Former NHL goalie and current Sportsnet analyst Kelly Hrudey spoke the truth ahead of the Boston-Tampa Bay game last night. We couldn’t agree more.
