High-scoring Lightning showing they play defense, too

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) The highest-scoring team in the NHL is playing a stingy brand of defense in the playoffs.

Andrei Vasilevskiy and the Tampa Bay Lightning know ultimately that will be the key to the chances for a deep run for the third time in four years.

The top seed in the Eastern Conference won its opening round series 4-1 over the New Jersey Devils, with Vasilevskiy stopping 53 of 55 shots over the last two games.
