NHL Preseason Game Night: 9-21-18 Lightning at Predators

Lightning youth shows up. Shows out.

TB-5
NSH-1

Louis Domingue allowed just 1 goal on 39 shots for the victory. Nice way to ease into the season.

First Period
7:18 TB Erne (1), (Volkov)
9:06 TB Erne (2), (Cirelli)
9:24 TB Katchouk (1), (Colton, Andreoff)

Second Period
8:34 NSH Josi (1), (Subban, Forsberg)(PP)
9:25 TB Andreoff (1), (Dumont)(SH)

Third Period
17:12 TB Masin (1), (unassisted)(EN)

Adam Erne and Andy Andreoff were the game's first and second stars.

After a pair of ultra flat games against Carolina to start the preseason, the Lightning youth roared to life tonight in the First Period against a veteran NHL'er-laden Predators lineup to get the 3-0 lead and never look back. Kudos to the Lightning after a performance so bad in Carolina, I didn't write a story about it (actually, a full and complete box score was never published with correct goaltender statistics, so there's that).

Mathieu Joseph was +2 with 2 penalty minutes and 5 shots in 16:49. He's having a pretty good preseason. Knocking on the door.

Slater Koekkoek was +5(!) with 1 hit and 2 blocked shots in 20:10 of duty. Dare we dream this is the year for Slater?

Cameron Gaunce had 3 shots in 21:11.

Boris Katchouk had a goal and was +1 with 2 shots and 2 hits in 14:48. Goals in back to back preseason tilts for Katchouk.

Taylor Raddysh had 1 hit in 16:08.

Kevin Lynch had 1:00 of ice time.

Matthew Spencer had 1 hit in 15:00.

Anthony Cirelli had a helper and was +1 with 2 shots and 1 blocked shot in 19:12 and he was 56% on 18 draws.

Erne had 2 goals and was +2 with 3 shots and 2 hits in 15:31. Annual reminder that Adam Erne has the goods athletically, and just needs to stay healthy.

Dominik Masin had a goal and was +1 with 2 penalty minutes, 3 shots, and 3 blocked shots in 15:43.

Alexander Volkov had a helper and was +2 with 1 hit in 17:18.

Erik Cernak had 2 penalty minutes, 1 shot, and 1 hit in 20:35.

Ross Colton had a helper and was +1 with 2 penalty minutes and 2 shots in 10:18. He was also 38% on 8 draws.

NHL Preseason Game Night: 9-18-18 Hurricanes at Lightning

Woof.

CAR-4
TB-1

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 4 goals on 35 shots for the loss.

First Period
4:06 CAR Cajkovsky (1), (McKegg)
13:05 Wallmark (1), (Bean, Svechnikov)(PP)

Second Period
19:09 CAR Zykov (1), (Brown, VanReimsdyk)

Third Period
4:38 TB Joseph (1), (Raddysh, Johnson)(PP)
7:11 CAR Svechnikov (1), (DiGiuseppe, Wallmark)(PP)

Mathieu Joseph was the game's third star.

It was the first preseason game, so we should put very little weight on this one. Still, you'd have hoped for a little better with a lot of your top back end players in the lineup, but the team just lacked possession in the preseason opener.

Joseph had a goal and was -1 in 15:17 with 3 shots and 2 hits in 15:17.

Alexei Lipanov had 1 shot and was 30% on 10 draws in 9:34. I kind of expect him to get a copy of the home game and to be returned to junior expeditiously, but we'll see.

Taylor Raddysh had a helper and was -1 in 11:49.

Jonne Tammela had 1 hit in 9:19.

Dominik Masin had 4 penalty minutes and 1 blocked shot in 15:59.

Alexander Volkov had 1 shot and 1 hit in 18:40 in premier minutes with the top liners.

Gabriel Fortier was -1 with 2 penalty minutes and 2 hits in 13:16. I'd expect he also goes the same route back to junior sooner rather than later, although he got a good amount of minutes relative to more established prospects tonight.

The Titan scored goals in the first and in the second to build a 2-0 lead at the 2nd intermission. Drake Batherson (OTT, 2017 4th round pick) scored late in the 3rd to pull the Armada within one, but the equalizer never came as Titan goalie Evan Fitzpatrick (STL, 2016 2nd round pick) stopped 29 Armada shots. For the 20-year-old Alex Barré-Boulet, that’s the end of his illustrious QMJHL career in which he compiled 140-197-337 in 263 regular season games, and 28-32-60 in 42 playoff games. He’ll be suiting up for the Syracuse Crunch in the fall as he begins his pro career.

The Soo built a 3-2 lead by the 2nd intermission behind a goal and a power play assist by Katchouk. But the Bulldogs stormed back with three straight 3rd period markers to take a 5-3 lead late into the game. Katchouk and Raddysh would combine each for their 2nd assist of the game on Jordan Sambrook’s (DET, 2016 5th round pick) first goal of the playoffs to draw the Greyhounds to within one with 45 seconds to go. The equalizer would not come as Hamilton punches their ticket to vie for the Memorial Cup in Regina. Robert Thomas (STL, 2017 1st round pick) and MacKenzie Entwistle (ARI, 2017 3rd round pic) paced the Bulldogs each with a goal and an assist. For Katchouk and Raddysh, this bring an end to their OHL careers, with both players expected to suit up for the Syracuse Crunch in their first pro seasons. Kachouk finishes 101-101-202 in 199 regular season OHL games, and 32-25-57 in 46 playoff games. Raddysh finishes 120-172-292 in 241 OHL regular season games, and 32-47-79 in 77 playoff games.

The Titan pulled off a huge road win getting goals from five different skaters to push the Armada to the brink of elimination when the teams play again Sunday in Acadie. The Armada opened the scoring with a power play marker just three minutes into the game, but that would be their only lead. The Titan would reel off three straight goals to take command of the contest, and set themselves up to punch their ticket to the Memorial Cup in front of their home fans.

The Bulldogs built a commanding 5-1 lead behind a pair of 2nd period goals by Robert Thomas (STL, 2017 1st round pick), and then weathered a furious 3rd period rally by the Soo. Bolt prospect Boris Katchouk scored his 18th of the playoffs, a power play marker set up by fellow Lightning prospect Taylor Raddysh, amid a five-minute three-goal flurry that closed the gap to 5-4 with five-and-a-half minutes left to play. But with the Soo goalie pulled, Brandon Saigeon (eligible for 2018 draft) set up Nick Caamano (DAL, 2016 5th round pick) for the empty net dagger with 85 seconds left in regulation. Saigeon scored his 17th of the playoffs and added two assists to help pace Hamilton to gutsy road win that pushes the Greyhounds to possibility of elimination Sunday back in Hamilton. Depending on the outcome of this series, the OHL playoff MVP arguable comes down to Katchouk (1st points, goals, shorties), Thomas (3rd points, 2nd assists, 1st PP assists), or Saigeon (2nd goals, 1st PP goals, 1st GW goals).
