The second period went just as bad as the first for the Lightning as it looked like they were headed for blowout city. Evander Kane picked up a power play goal, assisted by Dustin Byfuglien and Andrew Ladd to give the Jets a 3-0 lead, but then shortly after Dustin Byfuglien picked up another power play goal for the Jets to give Winnipeg a 4-0 lead entering the final period of play.
The Lightning finally got started in the third period, scoring three goals, but it was too little too late to overcome the 4-0 deficit they found themselves in early. Steve Stamkos scored his 43rd goal of the season on a power play to finally get Tampa Bay on the scoreboard. Martin St. Louis also picked up a goal in the closing minutes to make the score a bit nicer in the box score, as Tampa Bay goes down 4-3.
