TAMPA — The Lightning so dominated the second period Saturday that the Devils had more penalties (five) than shots on goal (four), and yet Tampa Bay was unable to build on a 1-0 lead as they sought to clinch the opening-round series.Nowhere was there more potential frustration than the power play -— they had four in a span of eight minutes, 21 seconds of the second, then a fifth as the third began. But the Lightning stayed patient, focusing on the way they were controlling the game, if not the scoreboard."Persistence, patience, not getting frustrated," said Ryan Callahan, who returned for the first time since sustaining an upper-body injury in Game 2, and got an empty-net goal with 1.7 seconds remaining to seal the win.The power plays came in quick succession in the second period — the second just five seconds after the first ended, the fourth just 14 seconds after the third. Lightning coach Jon Cooper said while they didn't result in any goals, they took New Jersey … [Read more...] about Lightning stays patient, even through 0-for-5 power-play drought

Special teams can make or break a playoff series, and the Devils are still looking for better results from their penalty kill. Entering Game 4 against the Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday at Prudential Center, the Devils will aim to contain a Lightning power play that has wreaked havoc through the first three games of the series. "It's just understanding what our net-coverage sort outs are going to be, and having the awareness that they do a good job of getting pucks into the high tip," coach John Hynes said. "They get pucks to the blue paint quick. Lots of times they're off broken plays." Those broken plays have led to some grade-A chances for the Lightning, who are 5-for-9 in the series on the power play. Alex Killorn has been a particularly sharp thorn in the Devils' paw, scoring three power-play goals right in front of the net. Devils' Game 4 lineup Like any opponent, the Devils have studied plenty of tape on Tampa's power play.
