Tyler Johnson’s Night

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

A year ago, Tyler Johnson informed the hockey world of the immensity of his skill set in his rookie season.

This spring he’s telling us about the enormity of his heart.

Monday night’s hat trick at Madison Square Garden to lead his Tampa Bay Lightning to a 6-2 win over the New York Rangers in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals will go down as one of the more memorable nights in these playoffs.

A short-handed goal with his team down two men, a power-play goal and an even-strength goal that was all second effort -- it was breathtaking.

Just another day at the office for Johnson, who padded his playoff lead to 11 goals, and the goals weren't even his most impressive play of the night.

If they win it all, Johnson is the MVP for sure.
