Jonathan Drouin took a minor and misconduct for checking to the head 10 seconds into Canada's thrilling 5-3 win over Slovakia, but rebounded with an assist on Canada's 2nd goal and their 3rd goal to key a huge comeback.

NHL Game Night: 12-29-13 Rangers at Lightning

Turnovers and poor luck doom the Lightning in their last game of 2013.

NYR- 4
TB- 3

Anders Lindback allowed 4 goals on 29 shots for the loss. It was one of those Lindback games where he wasn't the reason the Lightning lost, but he couldn't make the 1-2 key saves to be the reason they won.

First Period
4:30 NYR Nash (7), (Stepan)
10:41 TB Johnson (10), (Purcell, Filppula)(PP)
16:05 TB Palat (6), (Gudas, Cote)
18:25 NYR Zuccarello (9), (Brassard, McDonagh)(PP)

Second Period
4:35 NYR Kreider, (Zuccarello, Ryan McDonagh)(PP)
7:51 NYR Pouliot (7), (Brassard, Zuccarello)(PP)

Third Period
8:14 TB Filppula (14), (Purcell, Korobov)

Teddy Purcell was the game's third star.

The effort for the Lightning tonight was very good. They had good speed and the passing was better in 2 of 3 zones than against Montreal. However, they really struggled getting out of their own end with turnovers and they had some bad breaks between pucks bouncing in off d-men and unlucky penalties with sticks breaking off a faceoff. Outshooting New York 40-29 they probably deserved better, and looking back at this weekend they may regret only getting 1 point out of these 2 games with so many road games coming up.

Radko Gudas had a helper, 2 shots, 3 hits, and 2 blocked shots in 21:03. He had a rough night. His turnover led to the first Rangers goal. He had the second bounce in off his skate. Then on the third goal he got caught flat footed for Kreider's breakaway. He'll want to burn that game tape.

Mark Barberio was +1 with 2 shots, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot in 13:58. He was relatively mistake free in a game where everyone else played like a dumpster fire with the puck in their own third. Go figure.

Tyler Johnson had a goal and was +1 with 4 shots and 1 blocked shot in 20:43 and he was 53% on draws. New York had no answers for his line's speed.

Alex Killorn had 4 shots and 2 hits in 18:04. His line did well generating a lot of greasy goal opportunities in tight but couldn't cash.

Ondrej Palat had the quick release rebound goal and was +1 with 4 shots in 19:29. Again, that line was all over the Rangers like fire ants tonight.

J.P. Cote had a helper and was +1 with 2 penalty minutes 1 shot, 4 hits, and 2 blocked shots in 11:37. I thought he was absolutely hosed on the high sticking call that resulted in the GWG. To my eyes, they basically called J.P. For hitting someone too hard (but cleanly).

J.T. Brown had 1 shot, 2 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 14:45. He made one sweet play off the rush that nearly resulted in beating a d-man one on one for a goal, but all in all his line was off tonight.

Dmitry Korobov had a helper, his first NHL point, 2 penalty minutes and 1 hit in 10:35. His foot speed has really showed up as a liability in the 2 games this weekend.

Nikita Kucherov played 16:19. It was perhaps his first really ineffective game offensively as an NHLer.

Andrej Sustr had 1 shot and 2 blocked shots in 16:42. He was credited with 1 giveaway. It felt like there were more. I thought it was his poorest game at breakout passing this season.

Richard Panik had 2 shots and 1 blocked shot in 7:27. He and Pyatt looked strong on the puck early, but played sparingly after a couple of defensive zone turnovers.
