NHL Game Night: 2-21-15 Lightning at Coyotes

Taking care of business in the desert.

TB-4
ARI-2

Ben Bishop allowed 2 goals on 24 shots for the victory. One goaltender in the game made key saves at key junctures and the other was Mike Smith.

First Period
14:02 ARI Stone (3), (Erat, Korpikoski)

Second Period

Ondrej Palat and Ryan Callahan were the game's first and second stars.

The Lightning just asserted their will on the Coyotes in the Second Period and early Third Period to build a 3-1 lead and eventually take away the victory. It puts them in a position to cap off a very successful road trip that many other teams in the Eastern Conference were desperately hoping would critically wound Tampa Bay.

Nikita Nesterov had 1 shot, 4 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 16:19.

Angelidis Leads Crunch Past Senators, 5-3


By Jeremy Houghtaling

Mike Angelidis didn't pause to think over his answer.

The Crunch captain netted the eventual game-winning power play goal, chipped in a pair of assists, and dropped the gloves in a brawl in the final minute. But Angelidis was most proud of the two points in the standings after a 5-3 win over the Binghamton Senators at the Onondaga County War Memorial Saturday.

"I'm proud the team got two points," Angelidis said. "We've lost a couple games there ... We got two in a row here. So it's key for us to keep going here. I think we've got to get our swagger back. The chemistry is starting to click here, especially offensively, hopefully we can just keep riding it."
