Shootout
FLA- Weiss
TB- NONE

Teddy Purcell and Dana Tyrell were the game's second and third stars. Florida got the bounces they needed to hang around in the game and ended up stealing two points. The effort level was much improved from the Washington debacle, at least.

Mattias Ritola had an assist and two shots in 7:26. Tonight, his softness officially became a liability, when he got beat on Kulikov's goal.

Tyrell had a goal and was +1 with 3 shots, 2 hits, and 3 blocked shots in 12:22.

Blair Jones was -1 with 1 shot and 1 hit in 2:37.
