Default NHL Game Night: 2-9-19 Penguins at Lightning






Despite some anxious moments, Lightning win measuring stick game.

PIT-4
TB-5


Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 4 goals on 32 shots for the victory. The stat line isn't exemplary, but several of Andrei's saves tonight were.

First Period
13:36 PIT Wilson (1), (Blueger, Cullen)
15:02 TB Gourde (14), (Point, Hedman)
15:59 TB Cernak (2), (Paquette, Coburn)

Second Period
7:42 TB Cirelli (10), (Killorn, McDonagh)(SH)
8:31 PIT McCann (10), (Rust)
15:04 PIT Rust (15), (Guentzel)

Third Period
4:54 TB Johnson (19), (Palat, Stamkos)
14:03 TB Miller (9), (Killorn, Cirelli)
15:22 PIT Pearson (9), (Crosby)

Tyler Johnson, J.T. Miller, and Erik Cernak were the game's three stars.

This was a physical game that the Lightning clearly had earmarked as a measuring stick heading through the second half toward the playoffs. It was far from a clean game for the Lightning from the standpoint of managing the puck and limiting scoring chances, but ultimately they got to win. And, the way they got it was by a lot of guys who haven't scored much in a while getting healthy: Gourde, Cirelli, Johnson, and Miller. That's how you end the offensive drought.

Adam Erne was +1 with 15 penalty minutes, 2 shots, and 3 hits in 9:32. You saw the role they envision for him come playoff time, and his next game will mark his graduation from prospect status on the site.

Cernak had a goal and was +3 with 3 shots, 1 hit, and 2 blocked shots in 21:31. I like the defenseman rotation. I don't like Cernak being in it, though. He needs to be a regular first choice by the coaching staff. They're a far better team when he's in.

Agree on the rotation. Id prefer Coburn and Girardi rotate. Serge on occasion but he needs the ice time.

Not sure what was better. Scoring 5 goals or seeing Hornqvist get lit up at the end of the game.

Any time their 72 gets rocked adds to the value of the ticket. Cernak set the tone early. I hope you attendees got to see all the Pens fans exiting in a somber mood. F'em.

The officials were awful. One of the worst no call games in a very long time.
