    That's entertainment.

    NSH-5 (SO)

    Ben Bishop allowed 4 goals on 33 shots and 1 of 3 shooters to convert for the SO Loss. I thought he was average, maybe even slightly subpar by his standards on the first goal, and that may have ultimately been the difference because Rinne was splendid at the other end even giving up 4 goals.

    First Period
    19:07 NSH Fisher (1), (Weber, Neal)

    Second Period
    3:25 TB Stamkos (5), (Hedman, Filppula)(PP)
    8:51 TB Kucherov (2), (Palat, Coburn)
    10:29 NSH Weber (1), (Ribeiro, Wilson)
    17:41 TB Callahan (3), (Hedman, Stralman)
    18:55 NSH Neal (4), (Forsberg, Fisher)

    Third Period
    5:24 TB Condra (2), (Boyle)
    14:30 NSH Neal (5), (Forsberg)


    TB- NONE
    NSH- Forsberg

    Steven Stamkos was the game's third star.

    I hate losing, but not so much that I can't admit that was a whale of a game and absolutely the kind of product the NHL needs to put out on the ice. That had the feeling of a heavyweight boxing match with each team trading goals like they were trading haymakers. Just when one team would get a big possession push and a good cycle, the other team would answer in kind. It was a really, really good game.

    Lots of silver linings in the loss. The obvious is the Lightning put up 4 goals on that goaltender and that defensive corps in a night where Rinne was on his game. They would've scored 7 or 8 goals, I'm fairly certain, on a mortal goaltender. The other obvious one is that the special teams, which have been dreadful to this point of the season, were a strong point in this game. They got the tying goal on the PP from Stamkos to get it to 1-1 and they were fairly solid going 3-for-3 on the PK. That's no small task considering the bomb launchers Nashville has back on the points. That looked like a bad matchup going into the contest, but the Lightning held stout.

    What they'll want back is the semi-soft first goal late in the opening period, the Carle turnover on the Weber goal, and Condra getting absolutely lost in coverage on the rush on Neal's second goal. Get back any one of those and you obviously get the second point.

    Interesting twist to see a more tactical, possession-minded approach from Nashville in the 3-on-3 OT. They held the puck for a minute, it seemed like, on the cycle in the Lightning zone and I give credit to Stamkos and Hedman for not dropping dead from exhaustion covering that much ice. Nashville didn't get an A chance out of that much possession and that much ice, which is pretty remarkable. I'd expect to see the Lightning start to install that kind of cycle to wear out the opposing defenders in the 3-on-3 in the future. It was definitely much different than the jailbreak odd man rush fest in the first OT game of the season, and was much closer in resemblance to real hockey, to boot.
