Default NHL Game Night: 10-3-19 Panthers at Lightning

Not a Picasso, but Lightning comfortably take the season opener.


Andrei Vasilevskiy was very well locked in allowing 2 goals on 37 shots for the victory. Arguably the difference maker tonight.

First Period
6:39 TB Kucherov (1), (Sergachev, Joseph)

Second Period
2:35 FLA Hoffman (1), (Trocheck, Connolly)
10:28 TB Shattenkirk (1), (Sergachev, Killorn)

Third Period
8:49 FLA Trocheck (1), (Ekblad)(SH)
9:34 TB Palat (1), (Killorn, Sergachev)(PP)
13:51 TB Maroon (1), (Hedman, Kucherov)
19:14 TB Cernak (1), (Cirelli)(EN)

Ondrej Palat, Vasilevskiy, and Mikhail Sergachev were the game's three stars.

Too many shots against, too many odd man rushes surrendered, and that neutral zone turnover on the shorthander allowed was awful, but in the end equation the Lightning seemed to have control of this opener. There's plenty of things to harp on if you're the coaching staff, but it's nice to know that even without Brayden Point the offense still looks like a juggernaut and that the new additions are already contributing. I really liked the veterans Julien BriseBois (AKA Young Breezy) brought in this year, because unlike the Girardi's and Kunitz's of the world, Shattenkirk and Maroon do have some tread left on the tires. That showed up nicely tonight.

After last year, I'm not putting too much stock in the regular season beyond simply making sure the team makes the postseason comfortably. Nine more games to get ten more points in this open segment of the season.

Carter Verhaeghe was +1 with 1 shot in 10:55 in his NHL debut.
