Default Lightning at Rangers - October 29 - 7:30 pm

Lightning News: Point and Cirelli both game time decisions. Neither skated this morning. Vasilevskiy will start in goal.

Ranger news: Zibanejad is out tonight for the Rangers. Alexandar Georgiev is starting in goal.

Girardi being honored and will perform the ceremonial puck drop.

Nikita Gusev will watch the Devils’ game against Tampa Bay with Patrik Elias from a suite. The coaches feel he can benefit by watching and working 1-on-1 with another European player.

You know you aren’t having a stellar year when the official team notes include as a players highlight for 19-20:

Joseph - took a shot vs. Nashville.

Other teams seem to have our 1st PP unit figured out. They just stand up at the blue line and attack the guy that is usually looping with speed.

You are right Derek they line up and then go after the guy with the puck. Coaches need to come up with a new strategy. I am not impressed so far, they need to be better at the passing game.
Hedman has left the bench. Hope he is ok.

Not sure why Witkowski has passed Verhaeghe on the depth chart.

I guess Verhaeghe is playing tonight after all, I just didn't notice him in that 4 minutes of ice time through half the game lol.

More than witko before he had to switch to defense. Only so many people can say when killorn is at over 15 minutes with 5 minutes left in the 2nd.

I'm not one to complain about refs normally, but it's incredible the number of really soft penalties they have given us this year. That holding call on Joseph happens on so many draws during the course of a game. It's like we're always in the 5% of things that are called when it's let go the other 95% of the time. Not to mention that it seems like the other team always has 2 or 3 blatant infractions that don't get called. Stamkos got elbowed and Paquette got a high stick right in front of ref and nothing.

Killorn and Joseph are the two guys that actually seem to be skating hard. We should be losing 5-1 but Vasy is bailing out the lazy play.

This is getting ugly we are getting pushed around and the refs are just blind tonight. Somebody needs to go to the front of the net but no one wants to pay the price.
