Western Hockey League

Kelowna Rockets 4 @ Prince George Cougars 2

W Nolan Foote, KEL: 1-2-3, +3, 0 PIM, 3 SOG, *First Star*
Season Totals: 11 GP, 7-9-16, +5, 21 PIM
19-20 Totals: 66 GP, 36-27-63, -1, 62 PIM

Foote was first star again, earning three points (one goal) in a 4-2 road win in Prince George. Foote had the primary assist on the eventual game-winner, winning the puck along the wall on a shorthanded forecheck then immediately finding a teammate in front for a one-touch goal. Foote followed that up by finishing off a 2-on-1 where he put a low shot far side.

NHL Game Night: 10-23-19 Penguins at Lightning

Lightning get the payoff for better habits.

PIT-2
TB-3

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 2 goals on 39 shots for the victory including stopping a shot on the line with 0.2 seconds left to seal the win.

First Period
9:46 TB Killorn (1), (Kucherov, Sergachev)

Second Period
5:06 PIT Tanev (2), (unassisted)
19:01 PIT Guentzel (6), (Crosby, Simon)

Third Period
7:07 TB Paquette (1), (McDonagh, Witkowski)
19:03 TB Hedman (2), (Stamkos, Johnson)(PP)

Victor Hedman, Alex Killorn, and Vasilevskiy were the game's three stars.

The Lightning outshot Pittsburgh 48-39 in the contest. The shots against were a little high, but the trend continues toward the Lightning getting back to their bread and butter as a high volume shooting possession team.

It's a critical win for early season playoff pacing. The Lightning now sit on eleven points through nine games. They're one point shy of where they need to be with another game to close the opening segment of the season. A loss tonight and the team would've started the year in the hole.

NHL Game Night: 10-19-19 Avalanche at Lightning

Things are never as bad or as good as they seem.

COL-6
TB-2

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 6 goals on 24 shots.

First Period
3:09 COL Jost (2), (Girard, Wilson)
17:35 TB Gourde (1), (McDonagh, Shattenkirk)

Second Period
3:17 COL Jost (3), (Compher, Wilson)
5:48 COL Landeskog (3), (MacKinnon, Rantanen)
6:06 COL Jost (4), (Compher, Wilson)

Third Period
6:30 COL Kadri (3), (Makar)
11:48 TB Hedman (1), (Shattenkirk, Killorn)
14:27 COL Rantanen (5), (unassisted)

This was a weird game where the Lightning nears doubled up their opponent in SOG by a hefty 46-24 margin. They had their possession game going but they were plagued by poor puck management and poor positioning that resulted in odd man rushes. Those things need to be cleaned up, but it wasn't as bad as the score indicates because the team did do a fair number of positive things in the game. This is kind of a stock correction for some wins early in the season where the team probably didn't deserve two points.

Carter Verhaeghe was -2 with 3 shots in 8:51. He was also 89% on 9 draws.

For the second straight game Orlando got down early and had to fight their way back into the game. They were down 4-0 in their opener and 2-0 tonight. They never could recover from the slow start Friday, eventually giving up an empty net goal to make it 3-1 Norfolk. The Bears added a late goal to make it 3-2 but couldn’t get closer. Ryan Lohin sat Friday while fellow rookie pro Alexey Lipanov drew into the lineup. Brandon Halverson, former Rangers second rounder in 2014, had 49 saves for Norfolk.
