NHL Game Night: 11-15-18 Lightning at Penguins

Lightning power play annihilates Penguins.

TB-4
PIT-3

Louis Domingue allowed 3 goals on 31 shots for the victory. Never looked entirely comfortable in his first start as the #1 with Vasiy out with the fractured foot, but he battled and got the W. Hopefully he settles down for this next stretch.

First Period
10:33 PIT Hornqvist (6), (Kessel, Letang)(PP)
13:49 PIT Kessel (9), (Malkin, Hornqvist)(PP)
19:57 TB Point (10), (Johnson, Kucherov)(PP)

Second Period
0:41 TB Point (11), (Stamkos, Kucherov)(PP)
1:28 TB Point (12), (Miller, Kucherov)(PP)
4:29 PIT Hornqvist (7), (Malkin)
7:56 TB Gourde (8), (Sergachev, Killorn)

Third Period
NO SCORING

Brayden Point and Nikita Kucherov were the game's first and second stars.

This game had the makings of a blood bath until the Penguins surrendered a 5-on-3 late in the First Period that Brayden Point cashed to instigate the start of four straight successful power play efforts for the team and a hat trick for Brayden. And once the Lightning got a little momentum, they played with a lot of confidence against a very talented Penguins team.

With the win, the Lightning have grabbed 12 points in this second 10-game segment of the season, so it's another successful stretch with one game remaining in the segment to try to add some more insurance points to the ledger.

Mathieu Joseph had 2 penalty minutes and 2 hits in 12:38. He got boarded pretty hard in the game and looked a little shaky thereafter.

Anthony Cirelli had 2 shots, 3 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 16:21. He was also 73% on 11 draws.

Adam Erne had 2 shots and 4 hits in 11:07. This was one of Erne's better games in the NHL, in my opinion. Played hard with a lot of swagger and creativity.

Erik Cernak was -1 with 6 hits and 3 blocked shots in 15:38. Got hung out to dry by Domingue moving the puck behind the net on the minus. Otherwise, a very robust game positionally and physically for Cernak.
