Default NHL Game Night: 2-2-13 Rangers at Lightning

In a close game, quality goaltending matters.


Mathieu Garon allowed 3 goals on 30 shots tonight. He looked rusty and struggled, in my opinion. Rebounds were being kicked all over the place, he had trouble following the puck, and the last two Ranger goals were not his best efforts. Even the first goal was off a favorable rebound left on the doorstep.

First Period

Second Period
04:22 TB Stamkos (6), (Carle, St. Louis)(PP)
09:50 NYR Stepan (1), (Pyatt, Haggelin)

Third Period
03:04 NYR Nash (2), (Richards, Staal)
14:47 NYR Haggelin (1), (Pyatt)
19:39 TB Stamkos (7), (Carle, Malone)

Steven Stamkos was the game's third star.

Would the outcome have been different with Lindback in net? Perhaps. Would the outcome have been different if the Lightning were not in a back-to-back against a fresher Rangers team? I think so. Either way, this was an early stress test of the Lightning's ability to handle a more tight checking style, and while they didn't outright fail it, there are some questions left open.

Cory Conacher was -1 with 2 shots and 1 hit in 16:17.
