One critique you could make of the Lightning’s form in the early going of this season is they have been somewhat careless in protecting leads. They have been singed but not burned up until this point, though. The good news is the Lightning had some cushion in this segment to slip on a banana peel. Now it’s important for them to learn their lesson and get better.
