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.

AHL Game Night: 12-6-19 Rocket at Crunch

Syracuse stops slide with First Period explosion.

LAV-2
SYR-5

Scott Wedgewood allowed 2 goals on 17 shots in a little over two periods of work. Spencer Martin stopped the three shots he faced the rest of the way. Wedgewood departed with a LBI.

First Period
0:19 SYR Smith (4), (Colton, Conacher)
9:13 SYR Gaunce (2), (Martel, Abbandonato)
10:50 SYR Katchouk (5), (Abbandonato, D. Stephens)
14:49 SYR Conacher (7), (Mueller)

Second Period
2:12 LAV Ouellet (4), (Barber, Evans)
9:14 LAV Vejdemo (8), (Barber, Evans)(PP)

Third Period
3:50 SYR Conacher (8), (Foote, Mueller)(PP)

Cory Conacher, Luke Witkowski, and Ross Colton were the game's three stars.

Syracuse came into this game a little embarrassed, a little ticked, and a lot hungry, and they took it out on Laval early and often. Good on the Crunch to also go ahead and put the game away early in the Third Period with the soul destroying PP goal to quell any comeback hopes by the Rocket. That's what good teams do.

NHL Game Night: 12-5-19 Wild at Lightning

Lightning suffer from late 90's quality goaltending on 90's night at Amalie.

MIN-5
TB-4

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 5 goals on 21 shots for the loss. One of the less mentioned things about this year so far has been the maddening inconsistency of Vasiy. He's oscillated between ok and pure garbage, and tonight was one of those nights where he was the dog's breakfast.

First Period
1:52 TB Cernak (2), (Point, Vasilevskiy)
9:33 MIN Eriksson Ek (2), (Greenway, Suter)
10:46 MIN Zucker (11), (Staal, Zuccarello)
11:14 MIN Soucy (3), (Zuccarello, Brodin)
15:57 TB Sergachev (4), (Shattenkirk, Paquette)

Second Period
18:47 TB Hedman (6), (Kucherov)(PP)
19:23 MIN Rask (3), (Fiala, Soucy)

Third Period
4:00 TB Killorn (7), (Cernak)
4:08 MIN Zuccarello (6), (Zucker, Brodin)

Mikhail Sergachev was the game's second star.

The Lightning dominated possession for large swaths of this game, but it's irrelevant when you're mentally soft when it comes to details and you get below replacement-level goaltending. The Lightning now are probably going to fall behind playoff pace by the end of this ten game set of the year because they now need seven out of eight remaining points just to tread water. That's unlikely when your goaltending keeps bobbing up and down.

AHL Game Night: 12-4-19 Checkers at Crunch

Crunch completely outclassed by Charlotte.

CHA-5
SYR-1

Spencer Martin allowed 5 goals on 34 shots for the loss.

First Period
8:05 CHA Gauthier (8), (Bean, Kuokkanen)(PP)
9:28 CHA Gauthier (9), (Forsling, McKeown)
15:55 SYR Colton (3), (Gaunce, Witkowski)

Second Period
9:59 CHA Shinakaruk (4), (Markison, Bean)
18:55 CHA Wood (3), (McCormick, Luostarinen)

Third Period
10:16 CHA Kukokkanen (4), (Luostarinen, Bean)(PP)

Syracuse was outshot 34-18 in the contest and frankly never had a chance in this one. Dominik Masin being out of the defensive lineup, in particular, really seemed to hurt Syracuse's ability to get out of their own end.
