    Lightning lose against the run of play, and the iron, and the refs...


    Ben Bishop allowed 1 goal on 23 shots for the hard luck loss. I thought his rebound control got a little shaky for a little stretch in the Second Period, but overall he looked a lot sharper with rest.

    First Period
    15:59 STL Gomez (1), (Parayko, Brouwer)

    Second Period

    Third Period
    19:19 STL Brouwer (3), (Pietrangelo)(EN)

    Bishop was the game's third star.

    This is a tough one to swallow. The Lightning can play better, especially in the way of manufacturing some greasy goals in the dirty areas, but this isn't like the Chicago game. They dominated possession and the run of play against St. Louis and they really probably deserved better than a loss. It was a pretty good road performance against a good squad and ultimately nothing for the team to hang their head about to close this road trip.

    Of course, the outcome would've been different were it not for the horrific officiating the Lightning had to overcome tonight, especially in the Third Period as they pushed for the equalizer. J.T. Brown gets body slammed in the Second Period. No call. Ondrej Palat gets tripped along the wall in the Second Period. No call. Nesterov gets tripped in the offensive zone in the Third Period. No call. Condra gets tripped in the neutral zone in the Third Period. No call. The Lightning technically went 0-for-1 on the PP thanks to a generous 20 seconds of PP time awarded after an even-up call where the refs whistled Tampa Bay for too many men... on a play where St. Louis also had six skaters on the ice. When one team has a possession edge the way the Lightning did tonight and as well as their forecheck functioned at times, it seems a wee bit suspicious that the other team gets 3 times the PP time. Indeed, as the Third Period wore on, it became clear nothing less than first degree homicide was going to be called on St. Louis in this game. Tell me how depriving one of the most offensively talented teams in the league, Tampa Bay, of any real power plays while on national TV on NBCSN helps the NHL sell its product? I know, I know. Toronto says, "Shut up Lightning fans. It's a privilege for the team just to be allowed to play in the league." It's a total joke.

    Nikita Nesterov had 2 penalty minutes, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot in 15:51. He also had one of the more heinous turnovers in front of Bishop you'll ever see and the penalty he took was at a key time of the game when the Lightning were trying to get an equalizer. It was the very definition of a game where a young guy did the opposite of what he needs to do to make a case for himself to get steady ice time.

    Tough weekend ends with SO loss.

    RCH-4 (SO)

    Adam Wilcox allowed 3 goals on 40 shots but allowed both shooters to light the lamp in the penalty shot session for the SO loss. With news coming down today that Kevin Poulin cleared waivers, a provocative question about where Wilcox will be getting starts in the near future begs asking. Vasilevskiy will soon be back with Tampa Bay, pushing Gudlevskis back down to Syracuse and potentially making the best move for the organization finding Wilcox a place to get a starting role in the ECHL. He needs playing time to develop, and I don't see that happening as quickly with sparing appearances in a crowded crease situation in Syracuse.

    A few familiar faces to Syracuse Crunch fans skated into the Bon Secours Wellness Arena Sunday afternoon with the Florida Everblades to take on Brian Hart and the Greenville Swamp Rabbits. But Hart and his fellow Swamp Rabbits held Kevin Lynch, Mike Aviani, and Gabriel Desjardins all off the score sheet rallying from a two-goal deficit to complete the sweep of their weekend slate. After surrendering the first two goals, New York Rangers forward prospect Josh Nicholls scored twice for the Swamp Rabbits to knot the game at 2-2. Late in the 3rd, tough guy Emerson Clark, a former Windsor teammate of Slater Koekkoek, scored the game winner for Greenville to seal the victory. Syracuse depth defenseman Charlie Dodero assisted on Nicholls' second goal. Greenville has a three-game home stand next weekend against Atlanta, Evansville, and Florida.
