NHL Game Night: 2-21-15 Lightning at Coyotes

Taking care of business in the desert.

TB-4
ARI-2

First Period
14:02 ARI Stone (3), (Erat, Korpikoski)

Ondrej Palat and Ryan Callahan were the game's first and second stars.

The Lightning just asserted their will on the Coyotes in the Second Period and early Third Period to build a 3-1 lead and eventually take away the victory. It puts them in a position to cap off a very successful road trip that many other teams in the Eastern Conference were desperately hoping would critically wound Tampa Bay.

Nikita Nesterov had 1 shot, 4 hits, and 1 blocked shot in 16:19.
