Anton Stralman continues to lead by example for the Lightning.

"When the pressure is at its highest and somebody walks out of there as calm as can be, that's Anton Stralman," coach Jon Cooper said. "Our team, you just hear the guys on the bench praise him, the things he's done for us. Having that confidence that we get to throw him over the boards every second shift, it's just a luxury for us." He has earned an assist in each of his past two games to give him seven points in 19 playoff games this year. Stralman has a 6-0 record in Game 7s in his career and he is likely to play a key role for Tampa Bay if the team advances to the Stanley Cup Final following Friday night's meeting against the New York Rangers.

Anton Stralman had a feeling he would run into the New York Rangers eventually in the playoffs.

"Obviously it's been in the back of my mind the whole time," Stralman said about facing his former team. "Ever since the playoffs started, I just knew it was going to happen. I just felt it. It's ironic for sure." Stralman and Brian Boyle signed with Tampa Bay in the off-season after helping the Rangers reach the Stanley Cup Final last year. Ryan Callahan is also a former member of the Blueshirts, who is excited for an emotional series.

"It was a hard fought game out there and honestly could have gone either way with the way the game was played,’’ Stralman said. "It’s just one of those games that didn’t go our way, but I’m happy with the way we played, the way we battled and I don’t have much complaint.’’ The Lightning will try to put the Canadiens away again on Tuesday night in Tampa.

Anton Stralman was very disappointed with his team's performance in game five loss to Detroit.

"I'm very disappointed in the way we played," defenseman Anton Stralman said. "Home ice, Game 5, it is not acceptable to have that sort of game. We played well for the first five to eight minutes. In the third we played well. That's 25 minutes out of 60 minutes. That's not going to cut it against a good team in the playoffs. That's the bottom line." The Lightning will need a win in Detroit on Monday night to keep their season alive.

Anton Stralman added to his career totals this season with a goal in Sunday's win over Boston.

He has personal bests in 2014-15 with eight goals and 36 points in 73 games. "I've just been working on it and it's a big part of my past as a player," he said. "And when I went to New York I reinvented myself and became more of a defensive player and kind of left the offensive part. As the years have gone by I've been trying to refine (the offense)." Stralman has scored in two straight games to surpass his previous high of six, which he set in 2009-10 as a member of the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The return of Matt Carle to the lineup could be a boon to both Anton Stralman and Victor Hedman.
