Ondrej Palat Again

from Luke Fox of Sportsnet,

They were silent in Denver but whooping it up in Frydek-Mistek.

A Game 5 watch party in support of the Tampa Bay Lightning and their life-support threepeat bid had been planned in the thick of the night at Ondrej Palat’s supportive home city in Czechia.

“My parents just texted me,” said Palat, all smiles after scoring the difference-maker in Tampa’s 3-2 win Friday night. “There was like 80 people there. It was two o'clock in the morning. So, it's nice to feel all the support from back home even when the game is pretty late. So, it just feels great.”

Also feels familiar.

Palat, the seventh-round gamble with first-line impact, has now sniped three game-winners this post-season and 12 career winners in playoffs, third-most among all active NHLers.
