Some anxious moments for the Tampa Bay Lightning and that team’s fans during Game 1 on Friday.

Tyler Johnson, who took sole possession of the NHL lead in post-season goals with his seventh to give the Lightning the lead in the third period, briefly left Friday’s game after appearing to be hurt on a Brendan Gallagher cross check as the two went to the boards for the puck.

Johnson was called for holding on the play. It occurred a few minutes after Johnson scored the game’s first goal. He did return a few minutes later.
