Lightning atop Maple Leafs to keep the Three Hopes alive

Two-time champions Tampa Bay Lightning kept their hopes up for a three-time win, and the Toronto Maple Leafs suffered another disappointment in Game Seven with a 2-1 loss at home on Saturday night.

Possession of the trading deadline Nick Paul scored twice and goalkeeper Andrei Vasilevsky, who conceded at least three goals in the first six games of the first round series, was outstanding, saving 30 balls to give Lightning his ninth win in a row.

But the Lightning team also suffers a worrisome injury as they prepare to take on the top seed at the Florida Panthers in the second round.

Forward Brayden Point descended from the ice in the first period, unable to put weight on his leg after an embarrassing fall.
