Flat Lightning get Bobrovsky'ed.
Ben Bishop allowed 3 goals on 20 shots for the loss. The 2 softies he gave up in the first period became the margin of victory, as softies often do.
2:37 CBJ Jenner (4), (Calvert)

I'm not going to go so far as to say the Lightning were completely terrible, effort-wise. They outshot Columbus 34-20 and got their fair share of scoring chances on the forecheck. The team's been very out of sync passing the puck the last 3 or so games, though, which is indicative of a lack of focus, and that bit them tonight like it did in the shootout loss against Buffalo. It's a coachable moment for Cooper and an opportunity to get his players' eyes back on the prize.
Cedric Paquette had 1 shot, 3 hits, and 2 blocked shots in 13:19.
Jonathan Drouin had a helper on the Lightning's lone goal and 1 shot and 1 hit in 10:31.
