    All good things...


    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 3 goals on 39 shots for the loss. It was an unfortunate result for Andrei, because he was the only reason the Lightning had any chance at all tonight. He played really well.

    First Period
    4:07 TB Palat(11), (Koekkoek, Johnson)

    Second Period
    16:51 PHI Gostisbehere(13), (Raffl, Couturier)

    Third Period
    7:21 PHI Gostsbehere(14), (Giroux, Streit)(PP)
    13:57 PHI B. Schenn(22), (Giroux, Simmonds)
    14:53 TB Namestnikov(11), (Johnson, Kucherov)
    19:33 PHI Simmonds(24), (B. Schenn)(EN)

    Vasilevskiy was the game's third star.

    So ends the Lightning's franchise record 9-game winning streak. The Lightning got the goal early in the First Period and then played the role of spectator the rest of the night. They were flat, lifeless, and unfocused. They were second to loose pucks all night long, they were weak on their sticks, and their decision-making, positioning, and passing were remarkably poor. That's one of the worst games the Lightning have played in years, and would be easier to shrug off if, A.) They hadn't played poorly in their last game a stolen a win, and B.) They didn't have a good Boston team on a back-to-back tomorrow night. Just as concerning, as quickly and unexpectedly as Callahan and Killorn started playing well on Stamkos' line, that trio has gone back into the witness protection program again. Look, I love "The Triplets," but the Lightning will go as far as the vets like Stamkos and Callahan can take them, because they will have to give the Lightning the scoring balance they need to compete in the playoffs.

    Get well soon Brayden Coburn and Andrej Sustr.

    Slater Koekkoek had a helper, his first NHL point, and was +1 with 2 shots, 1 hit, and 2 blocked shots in 13:27.

    Jonathan Marchessault had 1 shot and 2 hits in 9:12. If you blinked, you probably missed him tonight. He's 7 games from graduation from prospect status on the website.

    Lightning survive the trap game in a quick pit stop at home.

    TB-4 (OT)

    Ben Bishop allowed 3 goals on 27 shots for the OT win. He'll want the first one back that went in off his blocker. The other two were not his fault when you talk about a puck that went in off Stralman's face and a tap in for an unmarked Skinner. Bottom line: he stood on his head in OT when he needed to in order to give the Lightning a chance to get the win.

    First Period
    16:43 TB Palat(9), (Johnson)

    Second Period
    13:24 CAR Rask(15), (DiGiuseppe, Skinner)
    15:41 TB Palat(10), (Kucherov)

    Third Period
    3:09 CAR Staal(17), (Lindholm, Rask)(PP)
    10:18 CAR Skinner(23), (DiGiuseppe, Murphy)
    13:42 TB Johnson(12), (Kucherov, Namestnikov)

    4:17 TB Killorn(13), (Filppula)

    Alex Killorn and Ondrej Palat were the game's first and second stars.

    When you win nine in a row, they're not all going to be masterpieces. Tonight was definitely an example. The Lightning got pretty loose defensively about midway through the game and it took a few great individual plays by the likes of Palat, Kucherov, and Killorn to ultimately manufacture a win. I'm not going to get too upset about it, though. There's a reason why it's taken over twenty years for a Lightning team to finally win nine in a row: it's really hard to play really well night in and night out consistently weeks and weeks and weeks at a time.

    Halfway through this 10-game segment of the season, the Lightning are a perfect 5-0-0, meaning they need just 2 points out of the next 5 games to stay on playoff pace. They should do that easily, so now is the time to stockpile points to allow the team to have the luxury of resting some guys around game 80, 81, and 82 of the season. In the Atlantic, the Lightning hold serve with the Panthers playing late at Arizona. At a minimum, the Lightning will maintain their tie atop the division with the tiebreaker due to their (sizable!) ROW advantage.
