Third Period

5:39 ANA Rowney (2), (Pettersson, Aberg)

Brayden Point was the game's third star.

Anaheim was able to pull off a difficult formula tonight playing a pretty perfect road game. They played a very determined, structured defensive game to clog up the neutral zone. So, they made it difficult for the Lightning to gain the zone and they kept the Lightning out to the perimeter as much as possible. They got great goaltending by Miller and they got some puck luck on the game-winning goal. It's not often an opposing team can pull this off the way the Ducks did tonight, but they managed to make it stand up. It happens. One of 82.

Mathieu Joseph had 1 shot in 9:25.

Anthony Cirelli had 1 shot and 1 hit in 12:42 and was 38% on 8 draws.

Adam Erne was -1 with 4 hits in 10:59.

Erik Cernak was +1 with 2 shots, 5 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 18:10.

NCAA Game Night: 11-25-18

Rensselaer Engineers 2 @ UMass-Lowell River Hawks 5

F Ryan Lohin, UML: 1-1-2, +2, 0 PIM, 11 SOG
Season Totals: 10 GP, 6-5-11, +3, 2 PIM
’17-‘18 Totals: 36 GP, 9-16-25, -2, 26 PIM

Turnabout is fair play as the old saying goes. After RPI rolled into the Tsongas Center and beat UML on Friday night, the River Hawks returned the favor Sunday afternoon at the Houston Field House in Troy, NY. Lightning prospect Ryan Lohin fired a game-high and career-high 11 shots (no one else had more than 4) and extended his point streak to six games with a goal and an assist in UML’s 5-2 drubbing of the Engineers. UML improves to 7-6-1 (3-3-1 HEAST) and takes next weekend off before another home-and-home series the weekend of Dec 7th against Boston University.

NHL Game Night: 11-25-18 Devils at Lightning

Another no-contest as Lightning make swift work of Devils.

NJ-2
TB-5

Louis Domingue allowed 2 goals on 35 shots for the victory. One of those goals should've been waved off for goaltender interference but, frankly, the league was trying to artificially inject some interest in the game. The second was a goal off the rush Domingue probably wants back.

First Period
3:19 TB Killorn (3), (Joseph)
7:21 TB Point (16), (Kucherov, Hedman)(PP)
9:15 TB Johnson (10), (Point, Kucherov)
9:39 NJ Noesen (2), (Seney)
11:25 TB Paquette (4), (Callahan, Girardi)

Second Period
8:30 TB Point (17), (unassisted)

Third Period
5:21 NJ Bratt (1), (unassisted)

Brayden Point, Nikita Kucherov, and Ryan McDonagh were the game's three stars. Brayden Point's going to mess around and win himself a Hart Trophy at this rate.

That's back-to-back games where the Lightning absolutely blew the competition off the ice from the word "go" and unlike the Chicago game you can't ascribe this one as much to the lack of quality in the opponent. Yes, New Jersey's essentially a one line team. But, they're far more organized and professional than the Blackhawks are right now and Tampa Bay still completely dismantled them in less than twenty minutes.

Mathieu Joseph had a helper and was +2 with 3 shots and 1 hit in 11:46. Made a great hustle play to set up the opening goal and later in the game nearly had a goal of his own with Schneider making a lucky stop off the shaft of his goal stick.

Anthony Cirelli was +1 with 1 shot and 2 hits in 14:12. He was also 38% on 13 draws.

Adam Erne had 1 shot and 2 hits in 10:44.

Erik Cernak was +1 with 1 shot and 2 hits in 17:00.

CHL Game Night: 11-25-18

Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

Baie-Comeau Drakkar 2 @ Charlottetown Islanders 1 (SO)

C/W Gabriel Fortier, BC: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 3 SOG, 7/13 FO, 1 Hit

17-18 Totals: 66 GP, 26-33-59, -11, 59 PIM

Coming off a 2-1 win in Halifax Saturday, Baie-Comeau needed a shootout, but still prevailed by the same score on PEI. Fortier did not participate in the extra-extra tiebreaker.
