The Lightning still got outshot 12-5 in the final frame as they continue to learn how to play with a lead late in games. However, after a punishing practice prompted by the debacle against San Jose, this was a win the Lightning had to have for team morale in the early season.
Congratulations to Steven Stamkos . He had 1 assist, 2 shots, and was 67% on draws in 12:58.
