Tampay Bay Lightning clearly defeated the NY Islanders 4-1 in the fourth final of the Eastern Conference.

The most special moment of the match was seen in the second round, when the teams made three goals in less than half a minute.
Islanders ’Brock Nelson hit first in 31.27.
Islanders ’joy only lasted 15 seconds after Lightning’s Blake Coleman smoothed to 1-1 readings. Just 12 seconds later, Ondrej Palat took the lead to Lightning.

The fastest three goals were seen in the 1985 playoffs when the Edmonton Oilers faced the Chicago Blackhawks. The teams banged three goals in 21 seconds. The middle of the goals hit the Oilers Jari Kurri.
A few seasons earlier, the Atlanta Flames and Toronto Maple Leafs had done a similar trick in 23 seconds. Phoenix Coyotes and Detroit Red Wings, meanwhile, scored three goals in 27 seconds in the spring 1998 playoffs.
