It was in powerplay at the score of 3-2 in the second period that the Swede struck. Nylander was parked in front of the Tampa cash register and received a pass from Mitchell Marner.

From virtually no surface at all, he managed to outwit star goalkeeper Andrej Vasilevsky by first poking the puck between his own legs and then squeezing it into the goal.

Prior to that, Nylander had also played to John Tavare's 3-2 goals.
