The Tampa Bay Lightning had become known for responding to playoff losses with wins. It had been three years since the Lightning lost consecutive playoff games.
Now that the New York Rangers beat the Bolts twice in a row to start the conference finals, what’s next? How will the Lightning respond after two straight losses?
Tampa Bay is still favored in Game 3, but is only +200 to win the series despite the 2-0 series deficit. The pressure will be on the home team in Florida to get back in the series.
But with each passing game, the evidence has built that there could be something special in this Rangers team. Ask Gallant about their confidence and he’ll point to the team’s 27 comeback wins.
“No quit is the perfect scenario for us,” he said. “We just keep working and find a way. We did [it] enough times this year that we’re gonna build confidence with this group.”
Every professional sports team spouts similar platitudes about itself at one point or another. The Rangers seem to be one of those rare groups that will be able to back it up, and prove that their words are more than an empty slogan.
“I think we always want to compete,” Motte said. “We always want to be in the battle, especially with one another. I think you see it in spurts, in different ways. You look at the end of a game, there’s a scrum and we’re all in there rolling. We’re all looking out for one another.”
That scene repeated itself at the end of games throughout the Carolina series. Against Tampa Bay, it has played out after whistles again and again.
“There’s many different ways that this group fights and battles for one another,” Motte said. “It’s special to be a part of, just having that ingrained into our DNA a little bit.”
