The Tampa Bay Lightning deserve a lot of praise for toughing out what had to be an immensely difficult series with a handful of major injuries to key players.
First and foremost was the obvious injury to goaltender Ben Bishop, who confirmed postgame that he tore his groin:
Bishop said he tore his groin on a Richards shot in second period of Game 2. Won't require surgery, just rest this offseason.— Joe Smith (@TBTimes_JSmith) June 16, 2015
He played the rest of the series (minus one start for Andrei Vasilevskiy) visibly hampered by the injury but battled through it nonetheless, giving the Lightning more than enough to win the series had the offense not dried up. No surgery is obviously a very positive detail; Bishop now has a few months of rest and rehabilitation before the 2015-16 season begins in earnest. For a guy who nearly played 100 games this year, it's rest well-earned.
As for Tyler Johnson, it's no wonder his goal scoring (really, offensive production in general) dried up:

Johnson, who had been unstoppable with 13 goals in the playoffs, simply could not handle or fire pucks with the thumb and/or wrist injury hindering him. That severely limited Tampa Bay's attack in Games 4 through 6 especially, which was basically "Steven Stamkos and a bunch of shots from the point".
We're still waiting on an official update for Nikita Kucherov, who was also obviously limited in Game 6 after crashing into the net on a missed chance in Game 5, but shoulder seems the likely culprit given he played at all.
