Tampa Bay Lighting Form


Tampa Bay are on the brink of advancing after bouncing back in Game 3.

The Lighting made a fantastic start to the series as they won back-to-back games in Carolina, 2-1.

They failed to take full advantage of those wins though as they were beaten in their first home game of the series.

Tampa responded well to going two goals down in the second period, levelling it up with a couple of goals on the power play before the end of the period.

They failed to complete the comeback though, allowing an overtime goal that handed Carolina a 3-2 win.

The Lighting bounced back in Game 4, scoring four unanswered goals as they came back from 4-2 down midway through the second period to win 6-4.

With a 3-1 series lead they can now wrap up the series with victory in Carolina on Tuesday night.

They will have do it without Anders Nilsson (concussion) and Marian Gaborik (back) though.

Carolina Hurricanes Form


Carolina know they cannot afford a third consecutive home defeat at the hands of Tampa Bay.

The Hurricanes were in trouble after failing to make the most of home ice advantage in Games 1 & 2.

They bounced back from those 2-1 defeats with a huge win in Tampa however, as an overtime goal lifted them to a 3-2 win in Game 3.

Carolina were brought back down to Earth in Game 4 though as they twice surrendered the lead to lose 6-4.

They must now win out to avoid crashing out, and there are still injury concerns over two players heading into Game 5.

Nino Niederreiter (upper body) and Vincent Trocheck (lower body) are still day-to-day on the injury report.
