There's no doubt the Tampa Bay Lightning's playoff run has been exciting so far. But for #37 Yanni Gourde, things just got a whole lot more exciting.

Gourde has two goals and two assists in this year's playoffs after setting the Lightning franchise record for goals in a season by a rookie as well as most points in a season by a rookie.
His wife posted a photo on Instagram in November, teasing that the baby would be a hockey fan:
Game 3 is Wednesday night in Boston, and while little Emma probably won't be there, we're betting she'll be cheering on the Bolts from home!
