NHL Preseason Game Night: 10-2-14 Lightning at Panthers

Lightning embarrass Panthers one week out from season opener.

TB-3
FLA-0

Evgeni Nabokov stopped all 21 shots he faced for the shutout. If work continues to be this light for Nabby, he could play another 5 years.

First Period
2:43 TB Palat 1, (Johnson, Connolly)

Second Period
NO SCORING

Third Period
7:53 TB Kucherov 1, (Namestnikov, Carle)
18:50 TB Kucherov 2, (Namestnikov, Hedman)(EN)

Extra thanks to the Panthers garbage-like inability to get their stats linked up right to NHL.com. Just move your God-awful franchise to Quebec City and get it over with. I'd care more about the "rivalry" if they weren't a so bummy from top to bottom. The Lightning's status is tarnished by having that dumpster fire occupy the same state.
