Lightning beat Panthers in another series. Delightful.
Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed two goals on 47 shots for the victory. Best in the world.
4:51 FLA Connaughton (1), (Huberdeau, Tippett)
7:31 TB Killorn (1), (Stamkos, Cirelli)
7:58 FLA Reinhart (1), (Verheaghe, Barkov)
1:00 TB Point (1), (Cernak, Palat)
12:04 TB Maroon (1), (Perry, Palat)(PP)
14:01 TB Maroon (2), (Palat, Perry)(PP)
Vasilevskiy, Pat Maroon, and Ondrej Palat were the game’s three stars.
That was supposed to be as close to the real thing roster-wise as you’re going to see in the preseason, and the Lightning ultimately handled their business. Maybe there will be a little hand wringing about the shot totals, but ultimately the Lightning capped their preseason successfully.
Taylor Raddysh was -1 with 2 penalty minutes and 1 shot in 10:31. He’ll await final cuts now.
Ross Colton had 1 shot and 2 hits in 16:15. He was also just 22% on 9 draws.
