Tyler Johnson's hat's trick set the tone for Tampa Bay's offense as the Lightning drilled the Rangers 6-2 in Monday night's Game Two of the East Finals to knot the series at 1.

It was a tough night for Henrik Lundqvist, who held Tampa Bay to one goal in the series opener but allowed all six Lightning goals on 26 shots in Game Two.

For Johnson, the scores were his ninth, tenth and eleventh of the postseason.

New York's goals came from Derek Stephan and Chris Kreider.

The series moves to Tampa for Game Three on Wednesday night (8:00).
