Everybody knew Taylor Hall was chomping at the bit for his first taste of playoff hockey, and he sure is making the most of it.

Hall notched two points in his playoff debut in Game 1 last week, and facing a must-win situation Monday night versus the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Hart Trophy candidate delivered yet another huge performance.

In over 22 minutes of action, Hall collected three points. He scored the Devils‘ first goal of the game, got the primary assist on the power play to tie things at 2-2 in the third period, and added another primary helper on the eventual game-winner as New Jersey came away with a 5-2 victory.

The Devils now trail 2-1 in the series.

Hall made a big-time statement in the regular season by netting a career-high 93 points in 76 games, and based on his postseason showing so far, he doesn’t appear ready to slow down.
