Lightning's Kucherov won't be suspended

Dan Girardi #5 of the Tampa Bay Lightning hits Stefan Noesen #23 into the boards

If the New Jersey Devils are going defeat the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 5 of their first-round series, and avoid elimination, they may have to do so without one of their best defensemen.

The Devils came into the game down 2-1 in the series, after taking Game 3 from the Lightning at home Monday night, 5-2. 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.

No penalty was called on the play and Hynes screamed at referees Tim Peel and Wes McCauley before play resumed.

Here's a look at the play. New Jersey coach John Hynes said there was "no update" on his status following the 3-1 loss to Tampa Bay. "He's competitive and he wants to win really bad". Outplayed them a lot of times, they've outplayed us at times. He would ice the game with an empty-net goal with 1:08 to go. Kucherov controlled his own rebound while jostling with Damon Severson in the low slot, and he lifted the puck over Schneider's left shoulder.

Evans, 21, and his partner Kate James, 20, have fought an ongoing legal battle to allow them to take Alfie overseas for treatment. The Rome hospital has reportedly given the same prognosis but would be willing to perform a tracheotomy.

Cory Conacher appeared to give Tampa Bay the lead with 7:39 left in the period, but the goal was overturned when a review found the Lightning were offside.

The appreciation is mutual between the Devils and Warburton, as players from the team have donned shirts emblazoned with his character's painted visage. This is the first time Schneider has had consecutive starts since January 22-23.

The Devils acquired Vatanen and a conditional third-round pick in the 2018 NHL Draft in a trade with the Anaheim Ducks for forwards Adam Henrique and Joseph Blandisi, and a 2018 third-round pick, on Nov 30. He did not travel with the Devils to Tampa on Thursday but could join them later. New Jersey has always been the long shot in this series, but there could be as many as three games left - it's far from over, a New Jersey fan might say.
