Default NHL Game Night: 2-10-20 Lightning at Blue Jackets

Lightning return to the scene of the crime and earn an important psychological victory.

CBJ-1 (OT)

Curtis McElhinney allowed 1 goal on 32 shots for the victory.

First Period
2:29 TB Kucherov (26), (Sergachev, Point)

Second Period
3:44 CBJ Bjorkstrand (18), (Dubois, Bemstrom)

Third Period

0:31 TB Kucherov (27), (Hedman, Point)

Nikita Kucherov and McElhinney were the game's first and second stars.

What I will tell you is that for the Lightning to go into Columbus and prove that they can beat a John Tortorella coach team playing a tight, grindy, hand-working John Tortorella style of hockey (and on a winning streak) absolutely does matter. That should be a little bit of validation for the style the Lightning have been continuing to master this regular season, and shows that they're capable of matching another team's willpower and work rate. And, that IS important.

Mitchell Stephens was -1 in 11:26. He was also 56% on nine draws.
