Rock Riley Talks Lightning With Tim Williams

Lightning try to move on as Devils face elimination

The Tampa Bay Lightning moved one game closer to the Eastern Conference Semifinals on Wednesday night with their 3-1 defeat of the New Jersey Devils.  Nikita Kucherov had two goals and a controversial moment, but Sports Talk Florida’s managing editor Tim Williams isn’t surprised to see the Lightning wing act as his own enforcer.

The series shifts back to Amalie Arena for Saturday’s game 5, and Tim will be in the arena for Sports Talk Florida.  Rock asks what the fans should expect from the Lightning defense, and Tim paraphrases a legendary hockey coach in explaining the importance of good defending in playoff situations.
