The Lightning has taken a 2-0 lead  over the Devils as the opening-round playoff series heads to New Jersey for Game 3. Tampa Bay  may be without Ryan Callahan and Dan Girardi, who left Game 2 with injuries, and may face a new goaltender for the Devils, Rick Stroud says in today's podcast.

Plus, the Rays get swept by the Phillies at Tropicana Field. But the bigger loss may be centerfielder Kevin Kiermaier, who sprained his thumb and may miss significant time for the third straight season.
