Ondrej Palat ran his goal-scoring streak to three games when he netted Tampa Bay’s second goal of Game 5, and it stood up as his second game-winner in three matches. He now has goals in five of his last six playoff contests, and sits second on the team in post-season scoring with 14 points.

His offence has been critical in a tightly-contested series, making the difference versus a Rangers team whose own offensive output has been steadily declining as the series goes on. That’s all shaping up for this to be another shutout performance in a series-clinching effort by Andrei Vasilevskiy. The Rangers will have to expend every bit of energy they have tonight to prevent that from being the case.
