Hockey “Tampa” Stamkos: a series with “Toronto” was one of the most difficult for us

MOSCOW, May 15 – Tampa Bay Lightning captain Steven Stamkos said the NHL’s first-round playoff streak against the Toronto Maple Leafs was one of the toughest the team has ever played in.
On Saturday, Tampa defeated Toronto 2-1 in Game 7 of the first-round playoff series to advance to the second round. Hockey players “Lightning” won the ninth series in a row.
“We’ve had bad luck in the past, but you just keep moving forward. You just have to get over it. That’s the whole point. It was one of the toughest series we’ve played. They’ve got star players, “they have a goaltender and some reliable defenders. If you go through the list, they have everything to win. However, we also believed in ourselves,” Stamkos was quoted as saying by the official NHL website.
In the second round of the playoffs, Tampa will play against the Florida Panthers. Toronto has not been able to break the Stanley Cup first round barrier since 2004.
