Third Period

Vasilevskiy was the game's second star.

There was a silver lining in this game, I think. The team muddled along for 40 minutes as they're still struggling to find their footing with Stamkos out and the new guys meshing with the team. But, in the third period, I think you started to see what Julien BriseBois had in mind with his deadline deals, because that forecheck was a notch above anything we've seen this season. They just couldn't find the one more finish.

Mitchell Stephens had a goal and was +1 with 1 shot and 5 hits. He was also 80% on 5 draws. He's five games shy of graduation from prospect status on the site.
