Game Night Results

  • 10 weeks 3 days ago

    Game (and possibly season) slips away from Tampa Bay.

    CBJ-3
    TB-1

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 2 goals on 30 shots for the hard luck loss. He deserved better. He made a good number of timely saves but the Lightning couldn't finish their chances most of the night. It's a shame. A win would've been huge for the team and huge for Vasilevskiy's confidence.

    First Period
    16:18 TB Drouin (13), (Filppula, Palat)

    Second Period
    16:40 CBJ Anderson (10), (Savard)

    Third Period
    4:29 CBJ Foligno (15), (Werenski, Wennberg)(PP)
    18:55 CBJ Jenner (7), (unassisted)(SH)(EN)

    Jonathan Drouin was the game's third star.

    The Lightning couldn't finish their chances, let Columbus hang around, and eventually the Blue Jackets finished just enough of theirs. It's really simple. The Lightning played a pretty good game overall. They dominated the first 30 minutes of the contest and could've easily built a good sized lead with the scoring chances they had, but they allowed Columbus to hang around. The final 30 minutes of the game the Blue Jackets found some traction with their forecheck and eventually found the tying goal and drew the power play to get the winner. All things being equal, there wouldn't be a whole lot from this game to cry over, but things are not equal right now. The Lightning standings situation is fast becoming desperate and it's getting to the point where every night they fail to earn points puts them closer to an early trip to the golf course.

    Gabriel Dumont was -1 with 3 shots and 1 hit in 9:08. He was also 60% on 5 draws.

    Matthew Peca had 2 penalty minutes and 1 shot in 7:46.

    The Syracuse Crunch seized the momentum late in the second period.

    The Crunch tied the score with 20 seconds left in the middle period, added the go-ahead goal 1:10 into the third and held on for a 5-4 win against the Toronto Marlies at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    “I’m very happy with the way we bounced back,” Crunch head coach Benoit Groulx said. “That game reminded me of the first game here. The momentum was shifting left and right. They have a good team, and we had to grind it out.”

    Bishop returns.

    BUF-2
    TB-4

    Ben Bishop returned from IR and allowed 2 goals on 26 shots for the victory. He was hung out to dry on the first shot of the game after a three week layoff, but pretty well held down the fort with timely saves from there on out, while also helping a shaky d-corps with his ability to conduct traffic with his puckhandling. It was welcome relief.

    First Period
    2:58 BUF Moulson (9), (Girgensons, Fedun)
    5:37 TB Palat (8), (Johnson, Drouin)(PP)

    Second Period
    5:18 TB Palat (9), (Nesterov, Namestnikov)
    12:58 TB Kucherov (17), (Hedman, Palat)

    Third Period
    10:30 BUF Kane (11), (Eichel, Falk)
    19:42 TB Stralman (2), (Filppula, Boyle)(PP)(EN)

    Ondrej Palat, Nikita Kucherov, and Bishop were the game's three stars.

    There's an obvious talent gap between Tampa Bay and Buffalo, so I'm not ready to start a parade for the Lightning beating an inferior team. For tonight's effort to matter, they need to keep this going against Columbus tomorrow night.

    Gabriel Dumont was -1 with 1 shot an 1 hit in 10:06. He was also 75% on 4 draws.

    Matthew Peca had 1 shot in 9:57.
