NHL Preseason Game Night: 9-26-14 Stars at Lightning

New additions help Lightning roll the Stars.

DAL-3
TB-6

Ben Bishop allowed 2 goals on 13 shots before giving way to Evgeni Nabokov, who allowed 1 goal on 9 shots the rest of the way.

First Period
8:04 TB Stralman (1), (Boyle, Connolly)
11:36 DAL Blanchard (1), (Ritchie, Dickinson)
16:06 DAL Ranford (1), (Sceviour, Fiddler)
16:35 TB Kunyk (1), (Hedman, Ikonen)

Second Period
4:36 TB Stralman (2), (unassisted)
8:34 TB Kucherov (1), (Stamkos, Callahan)
13:26 TB Corrente (1), (Boyle)

Third Period
7:44 TB Callahan (1), (unassisted)
9:00 DAL Spezza (1), (Ritchie, Ranford)

Ryan Callahan, Anton Stralman, and Brian Boyle were the game's three stars: an ex-Rangers sweep.

After icing two rosters against Nashville primarily composed of AHL and junior-level players, the Lightning put out something closer to their opening night roster tonight. They hung a six-pack of goals on the board. That's not too shabby.

NHL Preseason Game Night: 9-25-14 Lightning at Predators

Nothing to sneeze at, actually.

TB-0
NSH-1

Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 1 goal on 32 shots for the hard luck loss. He sparkled at times. Best of luck to Coach Zettler deciding between Kristers and Vasya most nights in Syracuse.

First Period
3:17 NSH Forsberg (1), (Ribeiro)

Second Period
NO SCORING

Third Period
NO SCORING

Gudlevskis was the game's third star.

I can't feel too upset with the Lightning playing the roster they did tonight and finishing a post or two from upsetting something that closely approximates Nashville's opening night team. Shea Weber and Roman Josi were Nashville's high men in ice time tonight. Tampa Bay? Mark Barberio and Andrej Sustr were the blue hairs in there tonight for the Lightning. Kind of says it all, and it's another sign for optimism for Syracuse fans.
