Vasilevskiy and Victor Hedman were the game’s first and third stars.
The Lightning got away with only playing well for 20 minutes thanks to their goaltender. Otherwise, this was an atrocity where the team got outshot 38-19 and outchanced even worse. Why? In general, defensemen getting caught pinching or reaching and giving up way too many odd man chances. It’s been a terrible bug with the team lately and it didn’t go away tonight. Vasiy just papered over them.
Alex Barre-Boulet was -1 in 16:05. He got a scoring line look with a lot of ice time and didn’t exactly capitalize on it.
Ross Colton had a goal, 3 shots, and 1 blocked shot in 13:38.
