A four-goal outburst in the 3rd period lifted Florida out of a 2-0 hole and doomed host Orlando on Saturday night. The rally secured back-to-back wins for Kristers Gudlevskis, the Lightning's 2013 5th-rounder, in what was his first set of games as a pro in North America. Dan Gauthier, who had a goal and an assist in the season opener, was held scoreless, as was Charles Landry, who's still looking to register his first point of the season, but both made a dent on the game sheet by finishing a combined +5 with 14 penalty minues as Gauthier and Landry each participated in the only two fights of the contest. The Everblades limited the Solar Bears to just 14 shots on goal and just 6 over the final two periods while posting 29 of their own, with 15 coming during the comeback effort in the final frame. Florida (2-0-0, 4 PTS) will begin its pending four-game road trip on Friday against Ontario (1-0-0, 2 PTS), which has a mid-week tilt with Stockton on the docket.

In his North American pro debut, recent draftee Kristers Gudlevskis steered aside all but one of twenty-one shots he faced in backstopping Florida to a sound decision in its seasons opener at home over divisional rival Orlando. It took a point shot that got through past numbers in the net front to spoil Gudlevskis' shutout bid. Fellow Lightning prospect Danick Gauthier (1 G, 1 A) as well as Maxime Langelier-Parent (1 G) and Carl Nielsen (1 A), both having contracts with and on assignment from AHL Syracuse, chipped in offensively. Florida (1-0-0, 2 PTS) and Orlando (0-1-0, 0 PTS) will square off again Saturday night in Orlando.

NHL Preseason Game Night: 9-18-13 Blues at Lightning

Erne gives the Lightning something to look forward to.

STL-3
TB-4 (SO)

Kristers Gudlevskis will get the win for the Lightning allowing 1 goal in regulation after spelling Cedrick Desjardins.

Adam Erne led the way with 2 power play goals. Tom Pyatt chipped in the other Lightning goal. Erne and Lightning newcomer Valterri Filppula scored in the shootout to put the club over the top in its comeback bid.

While it's unlikely Erne will make the NHL team out of camp, he gives Lightning fans hope that they have a steal of a power forward in the 2013 second round pick.

2013 Development Camp: Day 1

On the heels of a national holiday, 32 prospects--most drafted by the Tampa Bay Lightning, others signed as free agents and a handful of invitees--gathered on the ice Saturday at the Ice Sports Forum in Brandon to begin several days of on-ice and off-ice conditioning as well as instruction in organizational values and the culture of professional hockey for both returning and first-time participants.

"Let's call this what it is: summer hockey," Lightning head coach Jon Cooper told assembled media. "Part of what [the players] get out of this camp is the chance to get to know myself, Rob Zettler, the staff. Getting to know expectations and being a pro."

"A lot of these kids are coming from juniors programs, college, all these different walks of life, but here at the Tampa Bay Lightning we've got a certain code of conduct," Cooper noted. "This is where it starts."

Having concluded fitness testing and physicals, players hit the ice and rounded out their day with an hour-long practice spent completing basic drills as well as a forty-five minute power skating session.

"The first day is always kind of a feel out day," Cooper said. "Some of these guys, I'm sure, have been skating and some haven't been."

Keeping in mind that the 3-on-3 tournament scheduled to begin Tuesday and wrap-up on Wednesday, the final day of camp, will provide better opportunities to gauge player abilities and hockey sense, here are some brief and selected observations:
