NHL Game Night: 2-8-20 Islanders at Lightning

Lightning strangle the life out of Islanders attack.

NYI-1
TB-3

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 1 goal on 18 shots for the victory. I've seen him sharper. Then again, I've also seen him face more shots in a period than he did in this entire game.

Second Period
0:14 TB Point (20), (Kucherov)

Third Period
6:25 TB Verhaeghe (7), (Gourde, Stephens)
12:12 NYI Brassard (10), (Bailey, Beauvillier)(PP)
18:58 TB Stamkos (26), (Point, Kucherov)(EN)

Brayden Point, Vasilevskiy, and Anthony Cirelli were the game's three stars.

Stifling performance by the Lightning defensively in all three zones. The Isles aren't exactly a supercharged offensive club to begin with, but the Lightning were just generally strong in their puck management and pursuit all game long, leaving the Isles with few chances and what few shot attempts they got were often blocked before they ever reached Vasiy. Crazy to think the Lightning can do this with their #7 and #8 d-men being pressed into service with Rutta and McDonagh out hurt.

Mitchell Stephens had a helper and was +1 with 3 hits and 1 blocked shot in 12:15. He was also 50% on 10 draws.

AHL Game Night: 2-7-20 Crunch at Americans

Crunch solve Rochester riddle.

SYR-5
ROC-2

Spencer Martin allowed 2 goals on 24 shots for the victory.

First Period
16:46 ROC Mittelstadt (7), (Malone, Bryson)(PP)

Third Period
6:07 SYR Barre-Boulet (19), (Colton)
11:40 SYR Martel (16), (Katchouk, Roe)
12:37 ROC Dea (14), (Mittelstadt, Bryson)(PP)
15:39 SYR Smith (19), (unassisted)(EN)

Alex Barre-Boulet and Gemel Smith were the game's first and second stars.

After so many run and gun games and playing from behind so often, building a three goal lead midway through the Third Period tonight must've felt like a cool drink of water in the middle of the desert for Syracuse.

Syracuse actually rose to fifth in the North Division with the win, although sixth place Toronto holds three games in hand.

NHL Game Night: 2-6-20 Penguins at Lightning

Impressive win underscores Lightning's contender status.

PIT-2
TB-4

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 2 goals on 31 shots for the victory.

First Period
9:04 TB Sergachev (8), (Hedman, Johnson)
12:55 TB Stamkos (25), (Point, Kucherov)

Second Period

Third Period
3:20 PIT Marino (5), (Malkin)
19:27 TB Kucherov (25), (Hedman, Vasilevskiy)(SH)(EN)

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

That's a game where you go nose to nose against another contender in the East and you hang a -3 on Sidney Crosby. And you manage to protect a Third Period lead. It's another marker that says the team is starting to look like more than a mirage this season.

Carter Verhaeghe had 1 shot and 1 hit in 8:16. With his 41st appearance of the season, he is now graduated from prospect status on the site.

Mitchell Stephens was -1 in 10:57. He was also 67% on 12 draws.
