NHL Game Night: 2-7-19 Blues at Lightning

Remember when the Lightning used to score... goals, I think they were called?

STL-1
TB-0 (OT)

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 1 goal on 39 shots for the OT loss. All he needed was a smidge of goal support. Just a dash.

First Period
NO SCORING

Second Period
NO SCORING

Third Period
NO SCORING

Overtime
4:01 STL Schenn (10), (Parayko, Tarasenko)

Vasilevskiy was the game's first star.

Every team, no matter how good or talented, runs into an offensive cold streak over the span of 82 games. The Lightning may have just hit theirs.

Adam Erne had 3 shots and 4 hits in 9:06.
