Nikita Kucherov and Alex Barre-Boulet were the game’s first and second stars.
It’s November and the Lightning are scoring bushels of goals in front of replacement-level goaltending because Andrei Vasilevskiy is out hurt. It could be worse, but even these big wins feel dirty when you give up three goals in garbage time. Bank the two points and keep it moving.
Alex Barre-Boulet had a goal and was -1 with 2 penalty minutes and 2 shots in 11:32.
Darren Raddysh was -1 in 18:52.
