Victor Hedman's very good Stanley Cup playoff run got much, much better Monday.
The Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman notched two assists including a brilliant setup to Cedric Paquette for the game-winning goal late in the third period, over the Chicago Blackhawks. The Lightning have a 2-1 lead in the final.
Lightning coach Jon Cooper is among those impressed with the 24-year-old Swede's performance in these playoffs. "This is really his coming-out party," Cooper said. "He was a monster tonight."
