In the shortest series since 2019 where the Tampa Bay Lightning were famously swept by the Columbus Blue Jackets, the Lightning had a lot of great looks from nearly every player in the lineup. Not only is it impressive that the Lightning swept the Presidents Trophy winner Florida Panthers, but it’s also even more impressive that they did it without Brayden Point, who is out of the lineup with a lower-body injury.

The Lightning outscored the Panthers 11-3 in the second round, an impressive number for the Lightning but a disappointing one for the Panthers as they were known to have one of the best forward cores in the league.

With the second round ending for the Lightning and fans eagerly waiting to see who they play in the conference finals, here are the top five players from round two, with no specific order.
