NHL Eastern Conference Finals - Game 6

TAMPA BAY 5 BOSTON 4 - Series tied 3-3.


TAM- Teddy Purcell 2 (6), Martin St. Louis 2 (10), Steven Stamkos (6)
BOS- Milan Lucic (3), David Krejci 3 (10)


Martin St. Louis became the first player to ten goals this postseason when he netted his second goal of the game midway through the third period. David Krejci joined him in double digits three minutes later when he completed his hat trick. Krejci scored only 13 goals in 75 goals during the regular season... Teddy Purcell had a multi-goal game for the second time in the series. 5 of his 6 goals have come in the conference finals... Dwayne Roloson was back in goal for the Lightning after sitting in favor of Mike Smith for Game 5. Roloson saved 16 of 20 shots en route to the win... Of the five Game 7s so far this postseason, the home team has won four of them. The one team to win a Game 7 on the road was Tampa Bay who knocked off Pittsburgh in the first round... Boston defender Zdeno Chara leads the NHL in plus-minus this post season with a +11... Boston winger Milan Lucic is second in the NHL, and first in the Eastern Conference in penalty minutes with 43 in 17 games. Vancouver's Maxim Lapierre leads all players with 54 penalty minutes... Game 7 is tomorrow night in Boston.
