Hockey: Lightning down Red Wings in Game 7

The Tampa Bay Lightning won Game 7 on home ice against the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday putting them into the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. The goalies for both sides kept the puck out of the net for two periods but Detroit rookie Petr Mrázek was beaten in the third by a slapshot over the shoulder, top corner, by Braydon Coburn. Goaltending was a key factor throughout the match and the series, with Mrázek earning two shutouts against the Bolts. On Wednesday, Mrázek was named the game’s third star.
