Mitchell Stephens closed his junior season with a goal and an assist. His season was plagued by an early, significant injury, but was highlighted by good production in the second half after a good showing with Canada at the WJCs. He’s probable to join AHL Syracuse for its stretch run.

    Lightning dying on the vine after Stralman injury.

    MTL-3
    TB-0

    Ben Bishop allowed 2 goals on 23 shots for the loss. A lesser goaltender gives up 4 goals with the amount of turnovers and poor gap control the Lightning defense had tonight.

    First Period
    9:11 MTL Desharnais(10), (Andrighetto, Emelin)

    Second Period
    0:52 MTL Mitchell(10), (Pateryn, Emelin)

    Third Period
    17:32 MTL Danauly(4), (Mitchell)(EN)

    Steven Stamkos was the game's third star.

    The Lightning just look like a hot mess without their top four defensemen in tact. It was that way when Garrison was hurt recently, and it's even worse at the moment without Stralman. The new pairings look disjointed and the team is having to play certain players bigger minutes that simply cannot handle it. Matt Carle should to be playing over 23 minutes a night in the NHL anymore like he did tonight. And, tonight, it became glaringly obvious that Stralman is the glue that holds the Lightning together in terms of gap control. He was the one Lightning defender who routinely stepped up at his blueline. Tonight, you had the Lightning retreating off their own blueline all the way down to the top of the circles, which resulted in the early goal by Mitchell in the Second Period that was tonight's soul-crushing gut punch.

    With Florida winning tonight, the Lightning fall out of first place in the Atlantic Division. With 3 games left in the 10-game segment of the season, they still need at least 3 points, although the SunSports team pointed out their "virtual" magic number is 4. Either way, this team would have a hard time not at least backing into the playoffs. The issue for the last 5 games of the regular season, though, is figuring out pairings and a minute rotation on defense that actually looks cohesive and doesn't play like a train wreck destined to get bounced out in the first round. Three games into life without Stralman, they clearly haven't found that formula yet, and time is running out.

    Slater Koekkoek was -1 with 3 shots in 14:27. He surrendered at least 2 Grade A chances that Bishop had to bail him out on with turnovers and poor positioning. It'll be a learning process with Slater, but I don't see another defenseman on the roster who, athletically, can grow into bigger minutes the way that Slater can unless the finally make the decision to give Hedman every other shift.

    Bishop willing hapless, Stralman-less Lightning over the regular season finish line.

    TOR-0
    TB-3

    Ben Bishop stopped all 34 shots he faced for the shutout victory, and the customary meting of U of Maine Justice. You won't find a finer performance by a goaltender anywhere in Lightning history than what Bishop turned in tonight. Puppa and Khabibulin probably each turned in a game or two that were as good as that, but none better. He carried the Lightning on his back tonight.

    First Period
    7:34 TB Blunden(3), (Condra, Hedman)
    14:29 TB Palat(15), (Stamkos, Garrison)

    Second Period
    6:38 TB Hedman(8), (Stamkos, Condra)

    Third Period
    NO SCORING

    Bishop, Steven Stamkos, and Victor Hedman were the game's three stars.

    For a second straight game the Lightning had to go without Anton Stralman and Nikita Kucherov, and for a second straight game the Lightning looked a bit lost and befuddled. The difference tonight was that the Toronto Marlies are barely a NHL caliber team and Ben Bishop re-routed power to the deflector shields all night long. Hopefully tonight was the last without Kucherov in the lineup and, over time, the team's defensemen will hit their stride without Stralman. But, for the moment, it's pretty awful. Erik Condra is playing on Steven Stamkos' line. That's how awful.

    With 4 games left to go in the final 10-game segment of the season, the Lightning cut the magic number to 3 points, and they move into a tie in points with Florida, although the Panthers hold a game in hand in the race for the Atlantic Division title. The Lightning just have to grind out a couple of more wins as soon as possible, lock in their playoff position, and then spend their time getting their defensive pairings in order for the postseason.

Ex-Blues pick Sergei Andronov scored the OT winner 1:02 into the extra session. Nikita Gusev signed an extension with SKA during the regular season and is expected to stay in the KHL next season with the club.
