That got dramatic very quickly.

The Tampa Bay Lightning grabbed a 3-2 victory over the Detroit Red Wings in Game 1 on Wednesday night and now the Bolts are anxious to notch a two-game cushion in the first round series.

Of course, the Wings are anxious to post at least one win before heading back to Detroit, but first they’ll have to find a way to contend with Tampa Bay goaltender Ben Bishop who was the difference-maker in the first matchup.
