2:53 NYI Barzal (4), (Parise)
3:16 TB Joseph (2), (Killorn)
19:22 TB Cirelli (4), (Palat, Hedman)
13:28 TB Point (6), (unassisted)
15:30 TB Stamkos (8), (Hedman, Point)(PP)
Vasilevskiy, Anthony Cirelli, and Victor Hedman were the game’s three stars.
The Lightning need just five points in the next six games to hit their 12 in 10 target for the segment thanks in no small part to their ongoing eight game point streak. They’re starting to reel in Florida, which is now just four points up with the Lightning holding a game in hand. Bear in mind they’re posting this 8-3-3 mark without Nikita Kucherov and with a gross of youth in the lineup that is still figuring out how to contribute at the NHL level.
Boris Katchouk had 10 penalty minutes and 3 hits in 8:07. Efficiency.
Taylor Raddysh had 3 hits in 12:55.
Cal Foote had 2 hits and 1 blocked shot in 12:06.
Ross Colton had 4 shots and 5 hits in 14:19. He was also 50% on 12 draws.
