    Bishop returns.

    BUF-2
    TB-4

    Ben Bishop returned from IR and allowed 2 goals on 26 shots for the victory. He was hung out to dry on the first shot of the game after a three week layoff, but pretty well held down the fort with timely saves from there on out, while also helping a shaky d-corps with his ability to conduct traffic with his puckhandling. It was welcome relief.

    First Period
    2:58 BUF Moulson (9), (Girgensons, Fedun)
    5:37 TB Palat (8), (Johnson, Drouin)(PP)

    Second Period
    5:18 TB Palat (9), (Nesterov, Namestnikov)
    12:58 TB Kucherov (17), (Hedman, Palat)

    Third Period
    10:30 BUF Kane (11), (Eichel, Falk)
    19:42 TB Stralman (2), (Filppula, Boyle)(PP)(EN)

    Ondrej Palat, Nikita Kucherov, and Bishop were the game's three stars.

    There's an obvious talent gap between Tampa Bay and Buffalo, so I'm not ready to start a parade for the Lightning beating an inferior team. For tonight's effort to matter, they need to keep this going against Columbus tomorrow night.

    Gabriel Dumont was -1 with 1 shot an 1 hit in 10:06. He was also 75% on 4 draws.

    Matthew Peca had 1 shot in 9:57.

    Better effort. Crushing result.

    TB-2
    PIT-6

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 6 goals on 40 shots for the loss. He actually played really well for the first 40 minutes of this contest, but a guy can only face so many breakaways, odd man rushes, and unmarked defenders with point blank chances. At this point, his confidence looks shot and the Lightning may be unnecessarily toying with the prospect of ruining a young player the hockey world had thought was incapable of being ruined.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    2:19 TB Drouin (12), (Filppula, Hedman)
    6:44 PIT Sheary (10), (Rust, Crosby)
    11:14 PIT Fehr (5), (Cullen)

    Third Period
    2:33 PIT Kunitz (4), (Maatta, Bonino)
    3:28 PIT Wilson (5), (unassisted)
    5:40 TB Namestnikov (5), (Drouin, Stralman)(PP)
    7:50 PIT Kessel (13), (Crosby, Sheary)
    17:20 PIT Letang (3), (Schultz, Cullen)(PP)

    For 40+ minutes tonight was a much more spirited effort than we've seen of late. Imperfect, but the effort level and urgency level was there. Vlad Namestnikov even had a wide open wraparound that looked like a sure goal that would've knotted the game at 2-2 early in the Third Period. He blew the chance and then the wheels came off with the Lightning playing their 3rd in 4 days. This is a team that's played as much hockey as any team in hockey over the last 2.5 years and one that has largely had the same group of guys for that run with very few changes by Steve Yzerman. That probably has contributed to their proneness to injury and it probably explains how mentally, emotionally, and spiritually drained they've looked over this death march through the middle part of the season. Should they not find a way to snap out of it soon, wholesale changes will need to be made in the offseason. Rebuilding? No. But likely a retooling of the defense and lower lines, along with a strategic move or two on the scoring lines to inject something fresh into a stale and struggling group of players that need... something.

    Luke Witkowski was -2 with 1 shot, 2 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 10:16.

    Slater Koekkoek was -1 with 1 blocked shot in 11:10.

    Matthew Peca had 1 shot, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot in 9:08. He was also 55% on 11 draws. I thought he had a small rebound today after two subpar games in a row the last couple of times out.

    Adam Erne had 2 shots, 2 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 11:19. His linemates need to get used to how crafty he is passing the puck out of the corners and in behind the attacking cage.
