Trending: Taylor Hall, Game 3, #WHLPlayoffs

So, the hockey world will see what happens Monday night in Newark, New Jersey. Hall rung a shot off the crossbar at 16:27 of the first and had a great chance from the left dot at 8:12 of the second denied by Andrei Vasilevskiy.

Taylor Hall had a goal and two assists, setting up Stefan Noesen's game-winner with 7:05 play, and the New Jersey Devils scored four times in the third to claw their way back into their first-round series with Tampa Bay on Monday night, beating the Lightning 5-2 in Game 3.

The roof almost blew off The Rock when Hall tied the game 1-1 at 12:24 of the second, and it was just what the Devils needed from their star after Alex Killorn's power-play goal put the Lightning ahead just 42 seconds into the second period, and it seemed like it was only a matter of time before Hall got on the scoresheet.

Hall made a big-time statement in the regular season by netting a career-high 93 points in 76 games, and based on his postseason showing so far, he doesn't appear ready to slow down. "Sometimes you've got to make a few saves to do that. It's what we're going to do in the next one". Devils players took full advantage of the raucous crowd by playing with energy all game. "It's the playoffs. There's going to be battles, there's going to be swings of momentum, but the big thing for me is who won the game".

On Monday, his team down 2-0 in the series, and 1-0 - and later 2-1 - on the scoreboard, Hall delivered again.

Butcher had tied it at 4:03 of the period, just 24 seconds after the Lightning were penalized for having too many men on the ice during a penalty kill.

They say the incident began around 7:15 pm Sunday and involved multiple inmate-on-inmate altercations in three housing units. Of South Carolina's nine all-male, maximum-security prisons, Lee Correctional Institution is the largest.

Hall skated down the right boards, avoided a check by Tyler Johnson in centre ice and found Noesen in the left circle with a cross-ice pass that the forward one-timed past Vasilevskiy. When they want to shower the Devils superstar with praise they scream "M-V-P" for the Hart Trophy candidate, whose spectacular season helped end New Jersey's five-season playoff drought.

The Lightning, who scored on 3 of 4 power plays in the first two games, converted on two more in Game 3. Kucherov sent a pass from behind the goal line that Killorn redirected into the net before Schneider could move.

New Jersey fell behind 2-1 just 38 seconds into the third period on Steven Stamkos' power-play goal, the second straight period the Devils gave up a power-play goal in the opening minute on a penalty carried over from the previous period. Gabriel Landeskog was credited with an empty-net goal for the Avalanche, who snapped a 12-game skid against the Predators. Vasilevskiy made an excellent stop on a shot from near the blue line by Kyle Palmieri.

Hall could have had more.

However, the tone of this game, and what is now going to be the tone for the upcoming Game 4, was set in the third period. Lightning RW Ryan Callahan left the game late in the second period with an upper body injury and did not return. "We're not focused on what we did the first two games".

Hynes also elected to go with six defensemen instead of the seven he used in Game 2.
