NHL Game Night: 11-19-19 Lightning at Blues

Lightning drop a playoff-style test against a proven winner.

TB-1
STL-3

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 2 goals on 33 shots for the loss.

First Period
16:36 TB Cirelli (3), (Killorn, Hedman)(PP)

Second Period
17:24 STL Perron (9), (Parayko, O'Reilly)(SH)

Third Period
6:16 STL Sundqvist (4), (Thomas)(SH)
19:55 STL Schwartz (5), (Schenn)(SH)(EN)

Could beat a dead horse about giving up SH goals, but the Lightning only managed 18 SOG, so you don't deserve to win when you get shut down to that degree.

The Lightning have to win their next two games to stay on playoff pace through the second ten game segment of the season. Big test of whether they'll right the ship and stay on pace or dig a little hole.

Carter Verhaeghe was +1 with 1 hit in 6:22.

Luke Witkowski and Cory Conacher were the game's first and second stars. Needing to snap a losing streak you lean on your veteran leaders. Witkowski answered the bell tonight.

NHL Game Day: 11-16-19 Jets at Lightning

Lightning drop one against the run of play.

WPG-4
TB-3

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 3 goals on 26 shots for the loss. I'm gonna be honest: as much as I love Andrei, when are we going to see him round into form? How many games this season has he been below .900 in save percentage? He's sitting on a .901 save percentage so far this season, and it's below his standards. It's not unreasonable for the Lightning to expect better than replacement level netminding from him.

First Period
1:59 WPG Perreault (5), (Morrissey, Poolman)
19:11 TB Hedman (4), (Stamkos)

Second Period
7:18 WPG Roslovic (4), (Copp, Wheeler)
7:39 WPG Ehlers (9), (Connor, Morrissey)(PP)

Third Period
17:44 TB Stamkos (7), (Hedman, Cirelli)
18:32 WPG Connor (7), (Wheeler, Sbisa)(EN)
19:38 TB Cirelli (2), (Killorn, Kucherov)

Steven Stamkos and Victor Hedman were the game's second and third stars, with Stamkos notching his 400th career NHL goal in the loss.

The possession stats in the game were pretty good. That effort probably wins on more nights than not.

Carter Verhaeghe was -1 with 2 shots in 9:08.
