That's a fantastic play by Brewer.

To be fair, Gudas has one, too. But I loved his showing both with the hit and the fight.

Really fucking tired of power plays meaning odd man rushes for the OTHER team. Same bullshit already this year.

Not going to win much with the kids if the the top line doesn't show up.
The PP pretty much cost us the game; they certainly didn't make Boston earn it. 2 short handed against, and playing with complete disinterest on a 2 minute 5 on 3. Bowness and Cooper have some work to do.

Season starts with a whimper.

Stat observations of the game for me:
Sustr TOI 20:03
Stamkos 1 SOG through 59:20 and TOI 24:40
0 for 5 on PP and giving up 2 SHG's


I think I would have preferred having Aulie in instead of Barberio for this one, but he and Brewer played well.

Do you want the good news or the bad news?

The good news is, taking the 2 SH breakdowns out of it, the team played with a lot of structure and poise for most of the game until they sagged when they fell 2 down in the Third Period. That's how you hang close despite being down your top pair d-man (Salo), in a place you never win (Boston), in a game where you couldn't swing a cat without hitting a Lightning rookie. I thought Sustr and Labrie both played to their potential, and everyone else has more to give than they showed tonight. That's bad for tonight, but good from the standpoint that if they play to their individual potential within the system they showed tonight, they'll be in good shape.

The bad news is that the first line sucked. They were horrible. They did nothing other than a couple of sporadic scoring chances, one of which was a 2-on-1 Marty and Stammer flubbed at a key time in the game where they absolutely needed that goal. The Lightning won't win anything if that line is that ineffective all year. The second line had the puck very little, which is bad for three guys who need the puck to be effective. Third line (PTP) only had 2 guys show up, and they only showed up halfway through the game. Panik was dreadful tonight. His ass will be back in Syracuse and Connolly will replace him right quick if he's not careful. Lindback was very ordinary in a game they needed extraordinary goaltending to steal points. Finally, Barberio was a dumpster fire the first half of the game. Dumpster. Fire. When I start wishing for Keith Aulie, you know we have issues.

Did not see game (TV issues) but stunned Bishop did not start.
Hope Cooper isn't going to be Capt Cutesie with "surprises" like this.

Just need to play good team D, get .920 goaltending, pot some scoring chances and stay out of the box.
Its a simple game.

I guess holding the B's to 3 is encouraging, but.....

Well if you can't score on one let alone two 5/3s I would say you have a problem. Not enough shots, on the power play and no shots from in close. I thought Sustr played well and earned his ice time. The top line needs an infusion of testosterone or adrenalin something to get them going and 1 shot by Stammer is criminal at best. Yet they still gave Boston a game for most of the time, work on the power play please and learn how to,shoot the puck. I would much rather see JT Brown and Connolly on the 4th line than the two pylons that are there.
