Tampa Bay Lightning
At 7-1-1 the Lightning are atop the Eastern Conference and in fact the entire NHL. Their most recent win was a doozy — a six goal blowout of the defending champs that saw Steven Stamkos notch his 113th power play goal, which is now a Tampa Bay record. He also recorded his 600th point as a member of the Lightning.
The win assured that this year’s team matched the ’03/’04 squad for the best start to a season in franchise history. That ’03/’04 team finished second in the NHL in points and went on to win the Stanley Cup.
Stamkos already has 15 assists, many of them going to team goal-scoring leader Nikita Kucherov (10). The offensive attack is really clicking with everybody willing and able at the moment.
Carolina’s defense has been good but good might not be good enough against the Lightning, even in their own building. The Hurricanes are in the top half in the league in both goals against and penalty kill but they gave up four in their last one against Dallas.
The Stars blitzed them early with two goals in the first period and eventually built their lead up to 4–0 before Carolina started chipping away. The Hurricanes made it 4–3 before the comeback attempt fell short.
Jeff Skinner scored two of those third period goals to up his team total to five. You must think he’ll be in one another one or two if Carolina is to hand Tampa its second loss of the season.
