If you blinked during the Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Chicago Blackhawks game Sunday, you may have missed a lot. The Bolts won 6-3, but three of those goals came in a span of just 32 seconds!

According to the team's website, the three-goal flurry is a new Lightning record for the fastest three goals scored in franchise history, bettering the old mark of 42 seconds set previously March 11, 2008 in an 8-4 win versus the New York Islanders.

The three goals in 32 seconds are tied for the 22nd-fastest three goals by a team in NHL history. Only three teams in the last 30 years have scored three goals faster than the Lightning did Sunday night in Chicago: the Penguins (0:29 on Jan. 26, 1993), the Kings (0:30 on Oct. 12, 2019) and the Islanders (0:31 on Feb. 9, 2022).

Another notable performance Sunday came from Lightning goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy, who made some incredible saves in the game. He is now a perfect 12-0 in his career against the Blackhawks.

Tampa Bay's goals came from Taylor Raddysh, Victor Hedman twice, Cal Foote, Corey Perry and Mikhail Sergachev.

Next, the Bolts head to Winnipeg where they take on the Jets Tuesday night.
