Oh look, a dumpster fire!
Ben Bishop allowed 5 goals on 23 shots for the loss, 2 of which were pretty heinous softies. Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped all 13 shots he faced the rest of the way. The good news is that Bishop typically never has two clunkers in a row.

Other than Cedric Paquette beating the dog out of Ryan Pulock to the extent Pulock's ancestors probably felt that whoopin', there was nothing of merit to this game. The Lightning stunk in pretty much every aspect of the contest. If there was one thing I'd want the team to focus on immediately, though, it'd be to stop retreating off the blueline against the rush like the Visigoths are coming over the Seventh Hill at them. There's so much fear in that Lightning blueline right now, partially due to the stone footedness of Sustr and Carle, and it's killing them. You'll recognize Carle as the turnstile with skates in the video of the Islanders' second goal.
