    Defense falls apart at the end of the road.


    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 5 goals on 18 shots. The stat line looks terrible but there was really only one goal I felt was one that he'd definitely want back. With that said, part of being an elite goaltender is keeping your team in contact and at least giving them a chance by making 1-2 key stops. He didn't do that tonight by allowing the team to fall behind by 3 in the Third Period, which is almost always a death sentence.

    First Period
    10:53 TB Palat (15), (Johnson)
    16:21 COL MacKinnon (10), (Landeskog)

    Second Period
    3:10 COL MacKinnon (11), (O'Reilly, Barrie)
    3:39 COL Duchene (16), (unassisted)
    5:51 TB Johnson (23), (Kucherov, Killorn)
    12:50 COL MacKinnon (12), (O'Reilly)

    Third Period
    7:20 COL Tanguay (16), (Everberg)
    11:43 TB Connolly (12), (Filppula, Paquette)
    18:58 TB Kucherov (23), (Johnson, Hedman)

    In the universe I come from, if you score 4 goals and hold your opponent to 18 shots, you should win. The only time that doesn't happen is when you have self-inflicted wounds like really terrible turnovers against a skilled team. And, that's what happened tonight. This youthful defense the Lightning have patched together with Carle and Gudas out has been such a mixed bag. They'll play 2-3 decent games and then absolutely wet the bed like they did tonight. Nesterov, Barberio, and Hedman each had plays I think they'd want back, and it really burned the Lightning hard tonight.

    Hedman's inclusion on the goat horn list is particularly vexing given what I've said about best players needing to be best players. So is Steven Stamkos checking in at -3 and 31% on draws. Were both guys so awful they should be traded? No, but as I've said those two guys really need to start being the Lightning's top players night in and night out. Stamkos is the engine that makes Callahan go, and the young defense just seems to go as Hedman goes. God bless the Palat/Johnson/Kucherov line, but I don't want them to have to carry the team in the playoffs and I don't want a guy like Stralman or Garrison to have to play over their head. Stamkos and Hedman are trophy-winning caliber talents who need to start playing like it. I'm not saying it to be mean or to run the guys out of town, it's just the expectations have to rise now.

    It's too bad. Winning 4 of 5 on this road trip would've been a wildly successful outcome. 3 out of 5 is minimally acceptable, but leaving 2 winnable points on the ice like the team did tonight will ultimately cost them an Atlantic Division banner at the end of the year, barring them finding their next gear.

    Nikita Nesterov had 1 shot, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot in 14:29. He and Garrison got split on MacKinnon's first goal and he made the absolutely horrible turnover of Duchene's goal. That turnover gets you demoted on a lot of teams. As it is, it might get him a seat in the pressbox, at least.

    Number one, with a bullet.


    Allen York stopped 26 of 29 shots for the Crunch to cap their 3 win weekend.

    First Period
    SYR Namestnikov, (11) (Koekkoek, Corrente), 6:14
    SYR Corrente, (2) (Gourde, Mormina), 17:54

    Second Period
    SYR Smith, (11) (Richard, Namestnikov), 16:46
    RCH Reid, (8) (Tuzzolino, Leduc), 16:57
    SYR Namestnikov, (12) (Marchessault), 18:11
    RCH Varone, (13) (Irwin, Burt), 19:58 (PP)

    Third Period
    RCH D'Amigo, (9) (Irwin, Austin), 8:33

    Vladislav Namestnikov and Matthew Corrente were the game's first and second stars. They've been usual suspects of late when three stars get announced. Namestnikov now had 30 points in 31 games. The Lightning will need to make room for him up top next season, because he's wearing this level out.

    When you wake up tomorrow, the Syracuse Crunch will have the most points in the AHL. Nice. If they had a functional power play, they'd be untouchable.

He has 11 goals and 34 assists for 45 points in 52 games. The 5’11” righty had 45 points last year with Kamloops in 72 games, along with a minus-35 rating. He’s a combined minus-19 this year.

    Taking care of business in the desert.


    Ben Bishop allowed 2 goals on 24 shots for the victory. One goaltender in the game made key saves at key junctures and the other was Mike Smith.

    First Period
    14:02 ARI Stone (3), (Erat, Korpikoski)

    Second Period
    6:45 TB Palat (13), (Callahan, Stralman)(PP)
    14:31 TB Callahan (18), (Barberio, Stralman)

    Third Period
    3:27 TB Palat (14), (Hedman)
    11:42 ARI Arcobello (11), (unassisted)
    19:55 TB Stamkos (32), (Filppula, Garrison)(PP)(EN)

    Ondrej Palat and Ryan Callahan were the game's first and second stars.

    The Lightning just asserted their will on the Coyotes in the Second Period and early Third Period to build a 3-1 lead and eventually take away the victory. It puts them in a position to cap off a very successful road trip that many other teams in the Eastern Conference were desperately hoping would critically wound Tampa Bay.

    Nikita Nesterov had 1 shot, 4 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 16:19.
