NHL Game Day: 11-16-19 Jets at Lightning

Lightning drop one against the run of play.

WPG-4
TB-3

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 3 goals on 26 shots for the loss. I'm gonna be honest: as much as I love Andrei, when are we going to see him round into form? How many games this season has he been below .900 in save percentage? He's sitting on a .901 save percentage so far this season, and it's below his standards. It's not unreasonable for the Lightning to expect better than replacement level netminding from him.

First Period
1:59 WPG Perreault (5), (Morrissey, Poolman)
19:11 TB Hedman (4), (Stamkos)

Second Period
7:18 WPG Roslovic (4), (Copp, Wheeler)
7:39 WPG Ehlers (9), (Connor, Morrissey)(PP)

Third Period
17:44 TB Stamkos (7), (Hedman, Cirelli)
18:32 WPG Connor (7), (Wheeler, Sbisa)(EN)
19:38 TB Cirelli (2), (Killorn, Kucherov)

Steven Stamkos and Victor Hedman were the game's second and third stars, with Stamkos notching his 400th career NHL goal in the loss.

The possession stats in the game were pretty good. That effort probably wins on more nights than not.

Carter Verhaeghe was -1 with 2 shots in 9:08.

Third Period
16:03 UTI Boucher (13), (unassisted)(SH)(EN)

Boris Katchouk was the game's third star.

Syracuse slipped to seventh in the North Division with the loss. They are only five points back of first place, but they need to start to find their kick again shortly.
