Alex Killorn was the game’s second star.
The team had a way better start in this game and generally carried the possession play for most of the night. Where they went wrong, I think, is letting off the gas a bit in the First Period after they got the 2-0 lead. Chicago got the power play goal to close the First Period and then got a goal against the run of play in the Second Period and before they knew it the Lightning were in a bit of a knife fight.
Cal Foote was +1 with 2 shots and 2 hits in 10:45.
Alexander Volkov was -1 with 1 shot, 3 hits, and 2 blocked shots in 7:39.
