Game Highlights:

First Period -

The Lightning scored the first game with just three and a half minutes to go in the period. Alex Killorn found Anthony Cirelli right in front of the net. Vince Dunn thought it was a great idea to just stand there while Cirelli fired the puck under Binnington’s pads. Puck goes in the net and the Lightning head into the locker room with the 1-0 lead. Cirelli (3) from Killorn (8) and Victor Hedman (13)

Shots after one period were 8-7 in favor of the Lightning.

Second Period -

Late in the period, the Blues tied the game at one. David Perron was at the right place at the right time. Colton Parayko backhanded the puck towards the net. The puck bounced off a pad of Andrew Vasilevskiy. Perron was there to fire home the rebound and tie the game with his ninth goal of the year. Parayko (9) and O’Reilly (15) with the assists.

Shots in the period were 18-4 in favor of the Blues.

Third Period -

A tie game in the third period. Who would’ve thought it right? Well, the Blues were the ones to break the 1-1 tie just six minutes into the period. Robert Bortuzzo was able to keep the puck in the zone. Oskar Sundqvist moved the puck to Robert Thomas. Thomas then fed the puck back to Sundqvist. Sundqvist fired the puck at Vasilevskiy who didn’t even move. The Blues took the lead on Sundqvist’s fourth goal of the year. Thomas assisted on the play for number two on the year.

From the “I’m not sure if this is a good thing or not” department.

Oh hey if you didn’t hear this one hometown guy was back. He got something to take back to Florida with him.

Keep your head up.

And then there’s this.
