Talk about a momentum swing. The Tampa Bay Lightning lead the Montreal Canadiens 1-0 in their best-of-seven Stanley Cup Final series, and they got a huge goal to end the second period of Game 2.

With the game tied 1-1, Barclay Goodrow shot a pass over to Blake Coleman as the latter was going down to the ice. Coleman somehow managed to convert and give the Lightning a 2-1 lead at the 19:59 mark of the second period.

This was Coleman’s second point of the Final, but his first goal since Game 1 of the first round of the playoffs.
