And that, folks, is why the Lightning spent a 15th overall pick on the kid.
Riku Helenius was scintillating, stopping 41 of 42 shots in regulation and overtime before blanking all three Sound Tigers shooters in the penalty shot session for the win. Helenius improves to 2-3-0 with 1 shutout, a 2.12 GAA, and a .940 save percentage.

Helenius and Brandon Segal were the game's first and third stars.
Norfolk moves back to 4 games under .500 despite having McKenna and Ramo up in the NHL. Impressive.
