Lightning vs Penguins

GAME 4

Ryan Callahan sensed the urgency and led Tampa's forwards with his best game of the playoffs.

Vladislav Namestnikov, who has been relatively quiet in this series, had his highest Contribution since Game 3 versus the Islanders.

Much like the PIT forwards had a dominating Defensive Contribution in Game 3, the TBL forwards led in Defensive Contribution in Game 4 by a wide margin, with Callahan and Namestnikov being the leading Defensive Contributors.

On the back end, Andrej Sustr was the Overall Contribution leader, while Jason Garrison was the Defensive leader.

Evgeni Malkin led Pittsburgh Overall. He and Chris Kunitz both had their 2nd best Contribution of the Playoffs.

It is worth noting that the Offensive Contribution by both D-cores in Game 4 were very similar, but, the TBL D-core made nearly twice as much Defensive Contribution.

Also interesting, PIT forwards have led each game in the series in Offensive Contribution, but the team with the higher Defensive Contribution from its forward group, has won each game.
