Paul scores 2, Lightning hold off Maple Leafs 2-1 in Game 7

TORONTO (AP) Nick Paul came through with the best playoff performance of his career when the Tampa Bay Lightning needed it most and the two-time defending champions are moving on again.

Paul scored twice, including an incredible individual effort on the tiebreaking goal late in the second period, and the Lightning beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 2-1 in Game 7 on Saturday night to win their first-round playoff series.

"The electricity in this building was nuts," said Paul, a native of Mississauga, Ontario. "To come in and work as hard as we did, there was no doubt in our game. We stuck together."
