Sweep! NHL-best Tampa Bay Lightning ousted in record speed by Columbus Blue Jackets

Sullen and speechless, the Tampa Bay Lightning had little explanation for how they followed up a glorious regular season by getting bounced from the playoffs with record-setting haste.

The Columbus Blue Jackets capped a stunning sweep of the Presidents’ Trophy winners with a 7-3 victory Tuesday night.

Tampa Bay became the first team in the expansion era, which began in 1967-68, to go winless in the first round of the playoffs after leading the league in points during the regular season.

And what a season it was.

Tampa Bay tied the NHL record for wins with 62 and amassed 128 points, fourth in NHL history.
