Training Camp Numbers: Lightning Podcast Season 2, Episode 2

The podcast is back for another season as Andrew and I talk about the Tampa Bay fanbase, which version of the Lightning is real, and, of course, how the prospects are doing.

For first-timers, Training Camp Numbers looks at Lightning prospects (who get and are often stuck with the obscure training camp numbers), Lightning talking points, and the NHL news of the week.

D Quinn Schmiemann, KAM: 0-0-0, +1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG

Kamloops got 23 saves from Rayce Ramsay (2020) as they shut out visiting Swift Current, 4-0. Ramsay was the top goaltender for the Humboldt Broncos last year in their return to league play after the club’s horrific and deadly bus crash.

NHL Game Night: 10-15-19 Lightning at Canadiens

Anemic Lightning piece together a victory in Montreal.

TB-3
MTL-1

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 1 goal on 34 shots for the victory. Outshined Carey Price at the other end.

First Period
15:46 MTL Petry (2), (Domi)(PP)
19:53 TB Coburn (1), (Stamkos, Kucherov)

Second Period
1:04 TB Stamkos (4), (Hedman, Kucherov)(PP)
2:01 TB Johnson (2), (Palat, Gourde)

Third Period
NO SCORING

Steven Stamkos and Vasilevskiy were the game's first and third stars.

I just can't get stoked about yet another game where the Lightning got outshot by a 3:2 margin. This used to be a volume shooting possession team that had a pretty rabid forecheck. Now they play like an opportunistic counterattacking rush team that leans on the power play. It's not a recipe for long term success. It's just not.

The Lightning have four games to collect five more points to get out of this mediocre opening ten game segment of the year in tact.

Carter Verhaeghe had 1 shot in 9:00.
