Johnson (9) takes the pass from Hedman (77) and puts it past Price/JEFFREY S. KING

He is bigger now than he was five minutes ago. In another five, he will be larger still.

He is faster now, more skilled, more instinctive. The puck loves him. The net loves him. The ice itself loves him.

He is Tyler Johnson, and if they had not already named this sport ice hockey, they would call it “Tyler.''

And he’s also humble and well spoken.
The kind of player you love to root for.

If… no ….when we win game 4 tonight we will play the Caps or the Rangers . The Caps can rap it up with 1 more win too. The Bolts will have home ice advantage! GO BOLTS!

I was trying to watch the Rays and Lightning at the same time, fortunately flipped over with about 1 minute to go, couldn’t believe the goal – seemed to me after the Habs cleared their zone with 10 seconds or so to go they kind of assumed overtime and stood around for just a few seconds… Enough for Hedman & Johnson! And our Rays won to boot! What a great Tampa Bay Day!
