Lightning’s Goodrow proving his value to Stanley Cup champs

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The star-studded Tampa Bay Lightning beam when talking about the contributions of Barclay Goodrow, a physical third-line forward playing a largely unheralded role in the team’s bid to repeat as Stanley Cup champions. The 28-year-old returned from missing the first five games of the playoffs with an upper-body injury to help the Lightning finish off the Florida Panthers in the opening round, and then win two road games en route to a 2-1 series lead in a second-round against Carolina. It’s just what Tampa wanted in getting Goodrow from San Jose at last season’s trade deadline.
