NHL Game Night: 10/24 Sabres at Lightning

That's another point the Lightning left out on the ice this year.

BUF-3
TB-2 (SO)

Mike Smith allowed 2 goals on 32 shots, but one of those was a softie with time running out that cost the Lightning a point in the standings. After demolishing a water bottle, Smith stopped the 1 shot he faced in overtime and stopped 5 of 6 he faced in the shootout, but the damage was already done.

First Period
TB 19:59, Lecavalier 1 (Wright, St. Louis)

Second Period
BUF 19:14, Grier 3 (Kennedy)

Third Period
TB 4:26, Stamkos 7 (unassisted)
BUF 19:43, Stafford 3 (Roy, Rivet)

Overtime
NO SCORING

The Lightning are sitting at 3-3-3 for their record right now, but if they had actually finished off this game and the one against New Jersey they could easily be 5-3-1. The thing is, they dominated this game for much of the contest. It shouldn't have been a one goal game at the end of regulation anyway. And you can't blame Smitty for what happened in the shootout tonight. I can't fathom how Lecavalier, Stamkos, St. Louis, and Tanguay all failed in the shootout. That's uncanny, and frustrating.

Steve Downie had 1 hit in 10:43.

Drew Miller was -1 with 1 shot in 12:08.

Zenon Konopka had 2 hits and was 86% on draws in 7:34.

James Wright had a helper and was +1 with 2 shots and 3 blocked shots in 17:05. He's spent considerably less time on the deck the past two games than he did in the previous seven. Now it's decision time for the Lightning, but it seems obvious they'll keep Wright in Tampa rather than sending him back to junior. The key will be for the team to get him on the same in-season weight training program Stamkos was on last season so he doesn't burn out around the midway point of the year.

Victor Hedman had 2 shots, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot in 28:19. I thought he was off tonight. As good as he was against San Jose, he played a little too soft for my taste tonight and his giveaway obviously led to Buffalo's opening goal. Of course, had he hit the top corner on his chance in overtime, I might not be typing this at all.

Justin Keller was the game's second star.

It was an unbelievably porous effort on a night where the Admirals really had a golden opportunity to get back to .500 and set themselves up nicely to make a strong run in the coming weeks. Just a bad let down in the second period.

AHL Game Night: 10/23 Pirates at Admirals

POR Byron, (2) (Mancari, Generous), 9:02
POR Ennis, (5) , 11:52

Third Period
NO SCORING

Brandon Bochenski, Paul Szczechura, and Mike Lundin were the game's three stars.

There was a lot of talk about learning how to finish games coming off a road trip where Norfolk squandered leads in two of three games. Although the Admirals allowed the Pirates to cut a 4-0 lead in half in the second period, they shut the door completely in the third, allowing the Pirates just 6 shots in the final frame.

Who are you and what have you done with Vladimir Mihalik? Mihalik protected one of his teammates in the first period after a big hit by dropping the mitts, earning an instigator misconduct in the process. He then returned to the game and added a helper on Ryan Craig's goal to go with his 17 penalty minutes. New season, new Vladdy.
