Steven Stamkos, Ryan Callahan, and Victor Hedman were the game's three stars. Isn't it funny how when the Lightning's biggest stars get their games going, it takes the Lightning from a mediocre team to a team that can dominate like they did tonight (shot totals 41-23 for the Lightning)? This game was important in that it allowed the Lightning to get those star players on track, allowed them to exorcize some power play demons, and allowed them to make an example of an Atlantic Division foe they'll be fighting with for position for the next couple of months.
Cedric Paquette was -1 with 4 shots, 3 hits, and 3 blocked shots in 13:39. I thought he played an excellent game on the PK, even springing Hedman for a First Period breakaway, and he was on the ice for the last shift of the game with the team protecting the one goal lead.
Jonathan Drouin was +1 with 1 shot in 11:43. Stats tend not to show what he brings to the table in games. He drew a minor penalty in the First Period with a dazzling stickhandling display after falling down and then at the end of the Second Period nearly set up a goal after a world class keep-away exhibition in the offensive zone and a sharp snap pass to the side of the Leafs cage. He is slicker than an oil spill when he's got the puck.
