Training Camp Numbers: Lightning Podcast Season 2, Episode 2

The podcast is back for another season as Andrew and I talk about the Tampa Bay fanbase, which version of the Lightning is real, and, of course, how the prospects are doing.

For first-timers, Training Camp Numbers looks at Lightning prospects (who get and are often stuck with the obscure training camp numbers), Lightning talking points, and the NHL news of the week.

This was a weird game where the Lightning nears doubled up their opponent in SOG by a hefty 46-24 margin. They had their possession game going but they were plagued by poor puck management and poor positioning that resulted in odd man rushes. Those things need to be cleaned up, but it wasn't as bad as the score indicates because the team did do a fair number of positive things in the game. This is kind of a stock correction for some wins early in the season where the team probably didn't deserve two points.

Carter Verhaeghe was -2 with 3 shots in 8:51. He was also 89% on 9 draws.
