Vasilevskiy, Lightning hold off Devils for 3-1 series lead

Now the Devils' feel-good season could be over in a flash if they don't win three straight.

After a monster Game 3, Taylor Hall assisted on Palmieri's goal but didn't have a shot on goal through two periods. Vatanen was slow to get up before making his way down the tunnel, remaining out for the rest of the game. The Lightning's power play was one of the tops in the league, and they have converted at a 35.7 percent clip in the first four games. Lightning coach Jon Cooper even attributed their Game 3 loss to giving the Devils too many chances.

The NHL department of player safety determined that Vatanen's head was not the main point of contact on the hit, which is a determining factor for "illegal check to the head" rulings.

Devils coach John Hynes didn't give out much information about the injury on Thursday morning before the Devils left for Florida.

Kucherov said he did not intend to hurt Vatanen, who did not return.
