NHL Game Night: 12-9-19 Islanders at Lightning

Tampa Bay's season is now officially in some trouble.

NYI-5

Curtis McElhinney allowed 5 goals on 24 shots for the loss.

First Period
NO SCORING

Second Period
6:44 NYI Johnston (2), (Pulock)
8:37 NYI Bailey (8), (Cizikas, Boychuk)(SH)
15:35 TB Stamkos (10), (Shattenkirk, Cirelli)

The score isn't indicative of how closely played this one was. This felt a lot like a playoff game where, "first goal wins," and when the Isles got theirs after Conacher failed to convert on a breakaway it seemed like it was going to be incredibly difficult to get a W tonight.

The standings implications are scary. The Lightning will finish this playoff segment at least one point behind playoff pace, but they could be as much as five points behind the curve if they fail to get maximum points in these next two games. If they fall that far back, chances are they'll hit the halfway mark of the season still chasing a playoff pace, and that's a really bad place to be.

Carter Verhaeghe was -2 with 1 shot in 9:56.

Mitchell Stephens was -2 with 2 hits in 8:28 and he was also 80% on 5 draws. I thought he played really well. Probably the best of the debutante games this season. Better than Verhaeghe and Volkov's premieres, IMO. He was good on the forecheck and not shy at all about going to the tough areas in front of the net.

AHL Game Night: 12-7-19 Sound Tigers at Crunch

Syracuse decides to go streaking behind Volkov.

BRI-2
SYR-5

Spencer Martin allowed 2 goals on 31 shots for the victory.

First Period
1:44 SYR Gaunce (3), (Volkov, Thomas)
7:22 SYR Raddysh (4), (Volkov, Gaunce)

Second Period
5:06 BRI Wotherspoon (2), (McDonald, Lorito)
17:07 SYR Volkov (1), (Mueller, Thomas)(SH)

Third Period
9:00 BRI Schilkey (5), (Kuhnhackl, Aho)
11:17 SYR Raddysh (5), (Foote, Conacher)(PP)
12:07 SYR Mueller (8), (Raddysh, Volkov)

Alexander Volkov, Taylor Raddysh, and Martin were the game's three stars. It's crazy that was Volkov's, a two time 20 goal scorer, first goal of the season. His 1-3-4 night hopefully portends good things moving forward, just like Raddysh's 2-1-3.

NHL Game Night: 12-7-19 Sharks at Lightning

Kind of a shame big wins like this don't count for four points.

SJ-1
TB-7

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 1 goal on 38 shots for the win. Would've been amazing for him to hold onto the shutout, but hopefully tonight was enough for him to begin to re-find his form.

First Period
3:10 TB Johnson (6), (Verhaeghe)

Second Period
12:29 TB Killorn (8), (unassisted)
19:33 TB Stamkos (8), (Hedman, Killorn)(PP)

Third Period
0:52 TB Hedman (7), (Cirelli, Killorn)
3:51 TB Johnson (7), (Stamkos, Verhaeghe)
14:44 SJ Vlasic (5), (Karlsson, Meier)
15:36 TB Stamkos (9), (Killorn, Hedman)(PP)
19:35 TB Verhaeghe (1), (Rutta, Gourde)

Alex Killorn, Steven Stamkos, and Carter Verhaeghe were the game's three stars.

There's a lot of things from this game that give you some hope for a big Lightning turnaround. Vasiy getting himself together a bit. Stamkos snapping a bit of a cold streak. Even the youngster Verhaeghe getting his first NHL goal. The question, in this roller coaster season, is whether this was real and durable or whether this was a mirage. And, can they keep it going for the next three games to try and pull this ten game segment of the season out of the proverbial crapper?

Carter Verhaeghe had 1 goal and 2 assists and was +3 with 4 shots and 1 hit in 12:38.
