The Tamp Bay Lightning finally got their game on track beating the Colorado Avalanche 6-2 on Monday night in front of their home fans at the Amalie Arena.

Every Stanley Cup final game should be treated as a must-win, and the Lightning know that better than anyone. They looked more urgent in the first, and while they allowed the opening goal and another before that, that was ultimately waved off for being offside. They battled back and took a 2-1 lead into the first intermission.
By the end of the second, it was 6-2. Finally, after two games filled with misery, Tampa was back doing what they do best.
The Lightning were a goal away from winning Game 1, but the stats showed just how much better the Avalanche were in that contest. This was the first true effort where Tampa shined above their opponents and deservedly took Game 3.
Making it this far on their dynasty run, Tampa needed to overcome some adversity to get through 11 straight playoff series. They came back from 0-2 against a determined New York Rangers team. They trailed the Toronto Maple Leafs on a couple of occasions, including being down 3-2 at one point.
Tampa knew they needed a huge response in Game 3 and the team did just that. After the game fans were throwing things onto the ice. Captain Steven Stamkos wasn't a fan of the littering at Amalie Arena.
After back to back games of lopsided scores, hopefully Game 4 can get back to being a close back and forth battle. Game 4 happens on Wednesday night with puck drop at 8PM.
