Tampa Bay Lightning forward Alex Killorn received a five-minute boarding major and was ejected from Game 2 for his dangerous hit on Brock Nelson of the New York Islanders.

Nelson was initially forced to leave the game but he later returned. The Islanders, meanwhile, were unable to capitalize with the extended man advantage.

The Lightning opted to dress 11 forwards and seven defensemen for Game 2, so Killorn's absence left them with just 10 players up front. However, they still managed to win 2-1 thanks to Nikita Kucherov's game-winner.
