NHL Preseason Game Night: 9-23-14 Predators at Lightning

Young Lightning Crunch Nashville.

NSH-2
TB-4

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 2 goals on 30 shots in his North American debut for the victory. After falling behind 2-1 in the Second Period, the big Russian slammed the door the rest of the way, which is what good starting goaltenders do.

First Period
NO SCORING

Second Period
1:02 NSH Forsberg (1), (Wilson)
5:41 TB Kucherov (1), (Namestnikov, Marchessault)
7:40 NSH Smith (1), (Roy)

Third Period
8:35 TB Marchessault (1), (Namestnikov)
13:49 TB Barberio (1), (Filppula, Witkowski)
15:08 TB Marchessault (2), (Namestnikov, Kucherov)

Jonathan Marchessault, Vladislav Namestnikov, and Luke Witkowski were the game's three stars.

If you're a Syracuse Crunch fan, you have to be very satisfied with the way this group of players performed tonight. Your stud rookie netminder lived up to expectations. What may be your top line exploded for 3 goals including keying a big comeback. And Luke Witkowski beat the brown runny out of someone, to boot. Not a lot to complain about there.
