If you stayed up late last night, it was a frustrating loss for the Tampa Bay Lightning. After a dominant Game 3 win Monday night and having the lead for most of the night last night in Game 4, it felt like the Bolts were about to even up the series.
By now you know, that didn’t happen. The Colorado Avalanche were able to come back and tie the game in the 3rd period. That’s how it ended in regulation so Game 4 went into overtime. The next goal would be crucial. After 2 games that were complete blowout wins by several goals, this next one goal would be the difference between a 2 to 2 series tie or a commanding 3 games to 1 lead. Unfortunately for the Lightning, it was the latter. And many fans think the goal shouldn’t have counted because the Avalanche had too many players on the ice at the time of the score… and they’re not alone.
