Game Night Results

  • 7 weeks 3 days ago

    Lightning go meekly into that good night.

    BOS-4
    TB-3

    Ben Bishop allowed 4 goals on 35 shots for the loss. His inability to make situational saves cost the Lightning dearly in this one. Short of showcasing Bishop for a trade, I don't see much purpose in feeding him starts moving forward. Vasilevskiy got rolling a little before the All-Star Break. The Lightning need to make sure of what they have in Andrei.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    8:41 TB Killorn (14), (Hedman, Johnson)
    18:08 BOS Bergeron (12), (McQuaid, Marchand)
    19:59 BOS Krejci (12), (Marchand, Miller)

    Third Period
    4:46 TB Killorn (15), (Hedman, Johnson)
    7:51 BOS Chara (4), (Miller, Beleksey)
    12:23 BOS Vatrano (6), (Krejci, Miller)(PP)
    17:56 TB Point (4), (Hedman, Dotchin)

    Alex Killorn was the game's second star.

    The Lightning played a really solid first half of this game to build a 1-0 lead, and then waved the white flag of surrender for the final thirty minutes. What you witnessed was a Lightning team that lethargically gave away a couple of goals with sleepy play late in the Second Period and then played back on their heels most of the Third Period. And, even when they fell behind 3-2, they had a chance to turn the momentum of the game when Tyler Johnson did the unthinkable and passed out of a breakaway. Let me reiterate that: Tyler Johnson passed out of a breakaway. I just... what do you say about that. He passed... out of a breakaway?

    Brayden Point had a goal and was +1 with 2 shots, 2 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 15:47. He also was 33% on 6 draws. You could make an argument he was the Lightning's best player in his return afer missing about a month due to injury. He's now 4 games from graduation from prospect status on the website.

    Jake Dotchin had a helper, his first NHL point, and was +1 with 1 shot and 2 hits in 20:25. Re-read that minutes total. There's no more resounding an indictment of the Lightning right side defenseman situation that that.

    Gabriel Dumont was +1 with 1 shot and 3 hits in 10:34. He was also 67% on 9 draws. He's been hot fire in the faceoff circles and shown a lot of hustle in his checking line role.

    Crunch hold of a furious rally... barely.

    SYR-4
    SPR-3

    Adam Wilcox allowed 3 goals on 32 shots for the victory.

    First Period
    14:37 SYR Conacher (7), (Vermin, Gourde)

    Second Period
    11:27 SYR Brodeur (2), (Morin, Ikonen)

    Third Period
    5:43 SYR Ikonen (2), (Conacher, Koekkoek)
    11:21 SYR Gourde (15), (unassisted)(SH)
    13:53 SPR Hawryluk (3), (Acolatse, Sutter)(PP)
    15:08 SPR Rau (5), (Weegar, Berra)(PP)
    18:28 SPR Sutter (4), (Acolatse, Rau)

    Henri Ikonen and Cory Conacher were the game's first and second stars. Ikonen? I'll take unlikely heroes for $500, Alex.

    When you have a 4-0 lead in the Third Period, you really shouldn't allow the opposition to get as close as the old false hope goal. Fortunately, with the win, Syracuse maintained position 1 point back of Albany for the division lead with a game in hand on the Devils.

The hard-working winger has 11 goals and 15 assists for 26 points in 25 games this year.
