Third Period

Vasilevskiy, Brayden Point, and Steven Stamkos were the game's three stars.

Quality win against a quality opponent, but 18 SOG a game isn't a recipe for sustainable success. The Lightning can get by here and there with their high skill level and when Vasilevskiy's in form, but there's room for improvement on tonight's performance overall.

Carter Verhaeghe was -1 with 1 shot and 1 hit in 10:05.

Mitchell Stephens was -1 with 4 shots and 1 hit in 12:40 and he was 50% on 16 draws.
