NHL Preseason Game Night: 9-20-19 Predators at Lightning

Lightning offense breaks its slumber in Third Period comeback win.

NSH-1
TB-3

Curtis McElhinney allowed 1 goal on 32 shots for the win.

First Period
15:32 NSH Jarnkrok (1), (Bonino, Turris)(PP)

Second Period
NO SCORING

Third Period
9:30 TB Volkov (1), (Verhaeghe, Yan)(PP)
19:21 TB Kucherov (1), (Palat, Johnson)
19:44 TB Kucherov (2), (Palat)(EN)

Nikita Kucherov, Alexander Volkov and McElhinney were the game's three stars.

Shots were even at 32-32 for the game. Note the significant ice time for Volkov (again) and Carter Verhaeghe as well as a lot of ice time for righty defenseman prospect Ben Thomas (20:30). In all three cases, chronologically older prospects that should be among the next in line for spots in Tampa Bay, if in the cards.

NHL Preseason Game Night: 9-18-19 Lightning at Hurricanes

Lightning still looking to light the lamp in preseason.

TB-0
CAR-2

Martin Spencer allowed 1 goal on 13 shots for the loss before giving way to Zach Fucale who allowed 1 goal on 11 shots the rest of the way.

Second Period
4:53 CAR Lorentz (1), (Gauthier, Forsling)

Third Period
5:06 CAR Bishop (1), (unassisted)

The Lightning actually led shots on goal in the contest 24-21, so it wasn't the squash last night's game was.

Nolan Foote drew good reviews for his NHL preseason debut, but for readers of the tea leaves, take a look at Dominik Masin and his hefty 20:23 of ice time and Alexander Volkov and his 18:15. Two players clearly getting looked at.

Ugly performance for the young Lightning, who were thoroughly outplayed and outshot 37-15.
