NHL Game Night: 3-7-13 Jets at Lightning

Season keeps slipping away.


Anders Lindback allowed 2 goals on 28 shots, but the 2 goals were very soft. Hard to blame the goaltender when he only gets 1 goal of support, but he didn't help, that's for sure.

First Period
10:05 WPG Tangradi (1), (unassisted)

Second Period

Third Period
06:57 TB Stamkos (18), (St. Louis, Malone)
15:52 WPG Little (4), (Ladd)

Steven Stamkos was the game's third star.

Frustrating game. The Lightning had well over 20 scoring chances against a backup netminder. Lots of power play chances. Against Winnipeg that should equal a pretty lopsided win for the Lightning. Games aren't played on paper, unfortunately.

Alex Killorn had 2 shots, 2 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 21:28. That's not a typo. Clearly the coaching staff believes in the young man.

Ondrej Palat was -1 with 2 hits in 11:31. Had the go-ahead goal off a feed from Conacher and slammed it off the post. Unfortunate.

Pierre-Cedric Labrie had 1 shot and 1 hit in 7:12.

Cory Conacher was -1 in 13:01. He's clearly been passed on the depth chart by Killorn at this point.
