NHL Game Night: 11-21-19 Lightning at Blackhawks

Lightning keep their hopes of a successful 10-game segment alive.

TB-4
CHI-2

Curtis McElhinney allowed 2 goals on 34 shots for the victory.

First Period
16:10 TB Sergachev (1), (Gourde, Maroon)(PP)

Second Period
NO SCORING

Third Period
9:44 TB Cirelli (4), (Hedman, Killorn)
12:23 TB Point (5), (Palat)
17:17 CHI Strome (5), (Shaw, Kane)
19:00 TB Paquette (2), (Cirelli, Killorn)(EN)

Victor Hedman, Anthony Cirelli, and McElhinney were the game's three stars.

They needed this win, under the circumstances, and the Lightning dug deep and pulled out a big Third Period to get it done. Style points don't mean a ton to me right now in November. I'll care more about that come March or so. For now, the big thing is not digging a hole in the standings. Especially with some of the injuries that are popping up, survival is job one at the moment.

If the Lightning can win their next game to close out this 10-game segment of the year they'll remain dead on the pace they need to be in order to comfortably make the postseason. They need to really focus on getting that result.

AHL Game Night: 11-20-19 Crunch at Wolf Pack

Crunch cruise to victory over Hartford thanks to prospect punch.

SYR-3
HFD-1

Scott Wedgewood allowed 1 goal on 26 shots for the victory.

First Period
NO SCORING

Second Period
14:17 SYR Stephens (3), (Smith, Barre-Boulet)
15:08 SYR Yan (4), (Somppi, Masin)

Third Period
4:47 SYR Raddysh (3), (Smith, Thomas)
5:17 HFD Andersson (1), (DiGiuseppe, Fogarty)

Gemel Smith and Taylor Raddysh were the game's first and second stars. It was a very prospect-heavy scoresheet for the Crunch, which I think the organization would surely love to see even more of.

NHL Game Night: 11-19-19 Lightning at Blues

Lightning drop a playoff-style test against a proven winner.

TB-1
STL-3

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 2 goals on 33 shots for the loss.

First Period
16:36 TB Cirelli (3), (Killorn, Hedman)(PP)

Second Period
17:24 STL Perron (9), (Parayko, O'Reilly)(SH)

Third Period
6:16 STL Sundqvist (4), (Thomas)(SH)
19:55 STL Schwartz (5), (Schenn)(SH)(EN)

Could beat a dead horse about giving up SH goals, but the Lightning only managed 18 SOG, so you don't deserve to win when you get shut down to that degree.

The Lightning have to win their next two games to stay on playoff pace through the second ten game segment of the season. Big test of whether they'll right the ship and stay on pace or dig a little hole.

Carter Verhaeghe was +1 with 1 hit in 6:22.
