NHL Game Nigh: 4-2-13 Panthers at Lightning

I still hate shootouts.

FLA-3

Mathieu Garon allowed 2 goals on 25 shots and was 1 for 2 in the shootout for the SOL. He got outdueled badly by Markstrom, and Lightning fans have to be cursing the day Lindback got his high ankle sprain.

The Lightning completely dominated large swaths of this game and deserved better than to only get 1 point out of it. It's damned hard to put together a winning streak when you're surrendering a soft goal or two every game, and the Lightning desperately need a winning streak.

Mike Angelidis was 43% on draws in 7:22.

Alex Killorn had a goal and was +1 with 4 shots in 23:20. He's so money.

Andrej Sustr was +1 with 1 shot in 8:19. Officially 2 giveaways. That'll get your ice time down in single digit minutes as a rookie.

Tyler Johnson had 1 shot, 1 hit, and was 58% on draws in 16:53.

Ondrej Palat was +1 with 2 shots and 3 hits in 11:39.

Radko Gudas had a fight, 2 shots, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot in 11:55.

Cory Conacher played 14:04 in the game.
