TB- Stamkos, Kucherov

Nikita Kucherov and Vasilevskiy were the game's first and second stars.

First game off the little road trip and the Lightning had a sleepy start. Between that and some excellent goaltending by Carter Hutton, this turned out to be a very competitive game with the inevitable ending... yet another Lightning win.

Erik Cernak was -1 with 2 penalty minutes, 1 shot, 4 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 16:42. Cernak now three games shy of graduation from prospect status on the site.
