Western Hockey League

Kelowna Rockets 4 @ Prince George Cougars 2

W Nolan Foote, KEL: 1-2-3, +3, 0 PIM, 3 SOG, *First Star*
Season Totals: 11 GP, 7-9-16, +5, 21 PIM
19-20 Totals: 66 GP, 36-27-63, -1, 62 PIM

Foote was first star again, earning three points (one goal) in a 4-2 road win in Prince George. Foote had the primary assist on the eventual game-winner, winning the puck along the wall on a shorthanded forecheck then immediately finding a teammate in front for a one-touch goal. Foote followed that up by finishing off a 2-on-1 where he put a low shot far side.

NHL Game Night: 10-23-19 Penguins at Lightning

Lightning get the payoff for better habits.

PIT-2
TB-3

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 2 goals on 39 shots for the victory including stopping a shot on the line with 0.2 seconds left to seal the win.

First Period
9:46 TB Killorn (1), (Kucherov, Sergachev)

Second Period
5:06 PIT Tanev (2), (unassisted)
19:01 PIT Guentzel (6), (Crosby, Simon)

Third Period
7:07 TB Paquette (1), (McDonagh, Witkowski)
19:03 TB Hedman (2), (Stamkos, Johnson)(PP)

Victor Hedman, Alex Killorn, and Vasilevskiy were the game's three stars.

The Lightning outshot Pittsburgh 48-39 in the contest. The shots against were a little high, but the trend continues toward the Lightning getting back to their bread and butter as a high volume shooting possession team.

It's a critical win for early season playoff pacing. The Lightning now sit on eleven points through nine games. They're one point shy of where they need to be with another game to close the opening segment of the season. A loss tonight and the team would've started the year in the hole.
