Bolts Acquire Braydon Coburn; Trade Connolly and Gudas (Commentary)

TAMPA BAY – The Tampa Bay Lightning have acquired defenseman Braydon Coburn from the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for defenseman Radko Gudas, along with the Lightning’s 2015 first round and third round picks, vice president and general manager Steve Yzerman announced today. If Tampa Bay fails to make the playoffs in 2015 and ends up with the first overall selection, Philadelphia will receive the New York Rangers’ 2015 first round pick (previously acquired) in the draft in lieu of Tampa Bay’s own first round selection.

NHL Game Night: 3-1-15 Lightning at Panthers

Lazy.

TB-3
FLA-4

Ben Bishop allowed 4 goals on 26 shots for the loss. Lots of greasy goals for the Panthers in today's game.

First Period
10:24 FLA Jagr (12), (Huberdeau, Campbell)
12:08 TB Stralman (5), (Drouin, Boyle)

Second Period
5:31 FLA Barkov (10), (Jagr, Huberdeau)
17:00 FLA Boyes (11), (unassisted)

Third Period
4:18 FLA Ekblad (10), (Bjugstad, Huberdeau)(PP)
8:31 TB Stamkos (35), (Killorn, Garrison)
17:16 TB Johnson (24), (Kucherov, Stralman)

Lack of effort, plain and simple. After the masterpiece the Lightning put in against the Blackhawks, they were sloppy moving the puck out of their own zone and couldn't generate anything because of it. And, they didn't seem very worried about it while the Panthers incrementally built their lead up until they got their kill shot goal in the Third Period on the PP. The Lightning finally woke up with about 15 minutes left to go, but it's too late at that point. When you fall behind by 3 in the Third Period in pro hockey, it's over.

If the point of today's game was to try to inspire Steve Yzerman to push all in on a Cup run: mission failed. The wild inconsistency of this team, coupled with it's complete lack of a power play, simply does not inspire confidence that it's ready to make a deep run in the playoffs. You simply don't know what you're going to get from the team on a night-to-night basis, tracing back to the fact you simply don't know what you're going to get on a night-to-night basis from the guys who are supposed to be the team's best players: Stamkos and Hedman. How many nights have these guys taken a (way) back seat to the Palat/Johnson/Kucherov line and the likes of Anton Stralman? That's how you go from dominating the Blackhawks one game and absolutely wetting the bed against a bummy team like Florida the next. I wouldn't be gung ho to bet a 1st or 2nd round pick to put pieces around that shakiness, either.

Nikita Nesterov had 1 shot, 2 hits, and 5 blocked shots in 14:29. Busy young man.
