Lightning keep it rolling.
Ben Bishop allowed 3 goals on 20 shots before stonewalling 3 of 3 in the penalty shot session for the SO win. That might be as in control as I've ever seen Ben play in a shootout situation. It made up for a couple of goals by Helm and Nyquist where I thought he could've done a little better, especially on the unscreened Helm chance.

For most of the night, despite the Lightning being on the back end of the back-to-back, they seemed in total control at 5-on-5. Detroit's power play kept them in the game and allowed the Wings to make a push and tie the game in the Third Period, but it honestly felt like a game where the Lightning deserved the 2 points, outshooting Detroit 30-20.
Halfway through this 10 game segment, the Lightning already have 10 of the 12 points, minimum, you'd like to see them collect. They have a prime opportunity over the next 5 games to pick up a big handful of insurance points that can help them in the leaner times of the season.
Cedric Paquette had 2 penalty minutes, 1 shot, 4 hits, and was 63% on draws in 10:57. His tripping call ended up being a big one, as it led to the Helm goal that let Detroit back into the game at 3-2.
Jonathan Drouin had 1 shot in 13:08. He nearly won the game late in Overtime in a wraparound attempt where he got his stick held (uncalled) on the rebound.
Vladislav Namestnikov had 1 shot and 1 blocked shot in 12:00. He had moments in the Third Period when he was an eyelash of producing the game breaking play the Lightning needed to take the game in regulation. He certainly didn't embarrass himself in Uncle Slava's old stomping grounds.
