A play occurred during the third period of the game on Tuesday. Lightning forward Michael Eyssimont was skating towards the Boston crease when he inadvertently made contact with Bruins goalie Ullmark. This annoyed the Swedish native who gave have Eyssimont a high-stick in return. There was no penalty assessed on the play.
