Shootout
LA- Prokhorkin
TB- Point, Stamkos

Nikita Kucherov, Steven Stamkos, and Anthony Cirelli were the game's three stars.

This was a game where the Lightning were within an eyelash of seeing Jonathan Quick steal two points from them and thankfully they were able to manufacture a big goal. And, really, I can't tell you how much I love that after years of nothingness the Lightning are finally starting to generate goals regularly off of faceoffs again. The last few years Lecavalier was with the team it was a real staple but it hasn't been there for this generation, but it's a fantastically cheap way to get possession, goals, and scoring chances and can pay big dividends in the playoffs.

Carter Verhaeghe was -1 in 8:08.

Mitchell Stephens had 1 shot and 1 hit and was 60% on five draws in 8:54.

Alexander Volkov had a helper, his first NHL point, 4 penalty minutes and 1 shot in 8:57.

It might've been a bit due to fatigue, but I thought although the Lightning played reasonably well in this game they played New Jersey's game by keeping to the outside against a collapsing team structure. So, while they got shots, they weren't really getting enough quality scoring chances and they made the game easier for Louis Domingue than it would've been if the team had played more of a muscular, meat and potatoes style. Hopefully they learn from it in video session. Sometimes when you're playing a ton of games in a compressed schedule you take the path of least resistance rather than going to the dirty areas in search of some greasy goals, and tonight was a night the Lightning needed to manufacture a couple of greasy goals.

Carter Verhaeghe was -1 with 1 shot in 6:55.

Mitchell Stephens was -1 with 1 shot, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot in 12:36. He was also 27% on 11 draws.

Alexander Volkov had 2 hits in 6:26.

Crunch choke away a two goal lead and a point as season of mediocre misery continues.

SYR-5

Mike Condon allowed 5 goals on 37 shots and then allowed one of three to convert in the PS session for the SO loss. That's an .873 save percentage for Condon this season. Submitted without further comment.

Shootout
SYR- NONE
BNG- Gignac

Alex Barre-Boulet was the game's third star.

The Crunch really gave into score effects in this one, getting outshot 11-3 in the Third Period to allow Binghamton to execute the comeback. I'd be interested to tally up just how many time the Crunch have left points on the ice this season like this, because it feels like it's got to be pushing double digits at this point, and that's really the difference between challenging for the top of the North Division and underachieving in sixth place. How do you fix it? Well, we know there's one position where a single transaction can make a big difference now, don't we?

AHL Game Night: 1-11-20 Americans at Crunch

Four goal Third Period helps Comeback Crunch stave off slipping down to the .500 mark.

RCH-4
SYR-5

Spencer Martin allowed 4 goals on 24 shots for the victory. Julien BriseBois needs to please, for the love of God, do something about the goaltending situation in Syracuse. Please. Martin's got an .888 save percentage now, for crying out loud.

First Period
5:55 RCH Randell (5), (unassisted)
10:43 RCH Gilmour (4), (Smith)

Second Period
9:25 SYR Colton (7), (Raddysh)
10:32 RCH Murray (5), (Mittlestadt, Smith)

Third Period
2:47 SYR Raddysh (8), (Colton, Joseph)
4:14 RCH Dea (12), (unassisted)(SH)
8:36 SYR Katchouk (8), (Thomas, Raddysh)
11:45 SYR Sielhoff (2), (Conacher)
17:32 SYR Walcott (4), (Smith, Conacher)

Taylor Raddysh, Ross Colton, and Boris Katchouk were the game's three stars. Nice result for the Lightning's prospect forwards and their development.

Syracuse ended up outshooting Rochester by about a 3:2 margin, but I'll say it again: this is a very frustrating game when your team has to work that much harder just to get a goal because goaltending is not what it should be. Syracuse has the worst GAA in the Eastern Conference right now having surrendered 129 goals in just 37 games. Having the third most goals in the East will remain irrelevant until Syracuse can keep fishing it out of the back of their own nets.
