NHL Game Nigh: 4-2-13 Panthers at Lightning

I still hate shootouts.

FLA-3
TB-2 (SO)

Mathieu Garon allowed 2 goals on 25 shots and was 1 for 2 in the shootout for the SOL. He got outdueled badly by Markstrom, and Lightning fans have to be cursing the day Lindback got his high ankle sprain.

First Period
08:36 FLA Kopecky (13), (Brennan, Fleischmann)

Second Period
16:41 FLA Rallo (1), (Brennan, Kuba)(PP)

Third Period

Shootout
FLA- Mueller
TB- NONE

The Lightning completely dominated large swaths of this game and deserved better than to only get 1 point out of it. It's damned hard to put together a winning streak when you're surrendering a soft goal or two every game, and the Lightning desperately need a winning streak.

Mike Angelidis was 43% on draws in 7:22.

Alex Killorn had a goal and was +1 with 4 shots in 23:20. He's so money.

Andrej Sustr was +1 with 1 shot in 8:19. Officially 2 giveaways. That'll get your ice time down in single digit minutes as a rookie.

Tyler Johnson had 1 shot, 1 hit, and was 58% on draws in 16:53.

Ondrej Palat was +1 with 2 shots and 3 hits in 11:39.

Radko Gudas had a fight, 2 shots, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot in 11:55.

Cory Conacher played 14:04 in the game.
