5. This Team is Never Dead

They proved in round one against Toronto and they have proved it again through four games against New York, the Lightning will never go away. As long as they are still standing, they have what it takes to keep standing.

New York was unable to bury them in game three after being up 2-0 in the second period, but they let the Lightning back in it. Most teams would have crumbled in that spot, not this team. The life they got from getting back into that game translated into a win and that turned into another win in game four.

You can almost sense how things have shifted in this series as the Lightning have seemed to come alive following their nine-day slumber. They did what they had to do and defended home ice, but now the test will be if they are able to keep the strong play going on the road.
