They could have easily been up two or three goals but some tough luck and Marc-Andre Fleury combined to keep the score at zeroes. The best-of-seven series is now tied 1-1 with Games 3 and 4 scheduled for Las Vegas on Wednesday and Friday.

Hall struggled to stay healthy in his last four seasons with the team, tearing his left ACL twice in 2014 and dealing with a lingering toe injury in 2015.

He recorded 43 interceptions during his career, including four in one game against the Chicago Bears in 2010.

While at Virginia Tech, Hall was a speedy (4.34-second 40-yard dash) and feisty cornerback who earned All-America honors as a junior in 2003.

Hall mentioned that it was a dream of his to make the Hall of Fame, and that because of the way the back half of his career played out, he knows he still has work to do to get there.

The Atlanta Falcons originally selected Hall with the No. 8 overall pick in the 2004 National Football League draft.
