Default NHL Game Day: 3-18-18 Oilers at Lightning






Tampa Bay gets back to basics.

EDM-1
TB-3


Louis Domingue allowed 1 goal 30 shots for the victory. After a puckhandling miscue that gifted Edmonton their first goal, Domingue settled in to have an excellent game. He made a slew of solid situational saves in the First Period and first half of the Second Period that allowed the Lightning the time they needed to eventually build a lead and win the game.

First Period
0:14 EDM Rattie (2), (unassisted)
15:12 TB Hedman (12), (Point)

Second Period
2:24 TB Kucherov (35), (Stamkos)(PP)

Third Period
11:34 TB Kucherov (36), (Stamkos, Miller)

Domingue, Nikita Kucherov, and Victor Hedman were the game's three stars.

Less than 24 hours after being humbled by a Bruins team that just seemed to be more disciplined and better at the detailed basics of the game, Tampa Bay began its road to redemption and to regain its swag. It wasn't easy after falling behind early on a soft goal on a puckhandling gaffe, and certainly the defense was too loosey goosey in the opening 20-30 minutes of the game overall. But rather than trying to win another 80's style hockey game, the Lightning seemed resolved to win this one the right way and they simply got stronger and stronger in their team game as the contest wore on. They manufactured a goal off a faceoff. They got their power play functional again. The penalty kill actually didn't allow a power play goal. And they potted an insurance goal built on a relentless cycle that made Edmonton wither under the pressure. Yes, it's just Edmonton, but it's something the Lightning needed as a stepping stone as they continue this pre-postseason portion of the schedule.

Anthony Cirelli had 1 shot and was 56% on 9 draws in 11:41.

Adam Erne played 8:20.

Small steps in the right direction are infinitely better than steps of any size in the wrong direction.

Solid game. PK better and better decision making. Hope this is beginning of SC playoff Lightning version. Wonder if Domingue gets next start especially if Devils lose tonite and Lightning get the x. Go Bolts!!

With New Jersey’s loss, the Lightning have cliched a playoff birth.

Just because I want to go overly negative right now (not sure why I'm so down on them right now), I will say that A.) it was against the worst PP in hockey, and B.) it wasn't due to lack of chances. At one point the setup of the PK was not a box or diamond, but a straight line. There were a lot of cross ice passes from the circles and below that the Oilers either missed the shot or Domingue made an outstanding save coming across. The team needs to build on this, but it really did nothing to make me think the PK is getting there.

We allowed them to stay on this game far longer than we should have.

How to fix the Boston problem??? You can not stand at the blue line and wait for the puck. We are a speed team. All 3 forwards should be moving, with speed, towards the blue line. As they approach the blue line you toss the puck in and beat them to it.

We played a system Saturday, and like most games, we waited at the line for the dump in. Their "D" just had to turn around and they got the jump on us because we were not moving.

When we passed off the boards and we tried to retrieve the puck over the line they knew to cut our line away by closing in on the boards. We need to be moving, dumping and going for the clear path.
