Carolina Hurricanes: preview, predictions vs. Lightning

Carolina Hurricanes: preview, predictions vs. Lightning”

Sergachev said he's glad to be staying at the National Hockey League level but added he will continue to play as if his future isn't assured, making a case each game to stay up with the Lightning.

Stamkos had a goal and three assists, and Kucherov had two goals and an assist.

Still, the Pens have superstars Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel and a host of other really good players on their roster, and the Lightning just defeated them by six goals, tied for the third-largest margin of victory all-time in Bolts history. They often found themselves digging out of a hole, whether it be due to a careless turnover or defensive lapse in their own end.

In the second period, Tampa Bay scored three goals that were decidedly more stoppable than the ones they scored in the first.

The Lightning took a 1-0 lead on a power-play goal by Tyler Johnson at 19:25 of the first period.

Carolina started the game aggressive, at one time having a 7-5 shots on goal advantage. Last season's team registered 27 goals for and 29 goals against in the same span.

Sergachev, a rookie skating in his 10th career game, put the Lightning up 2-0 at 9:13 of the second period with a knuckleballing shot from the circle that capped a furious sequence in front of Darling.

The problem with being a shoot-first team that can strike from a play out of the neutral zone is that Tampa Bay sometimes struggles to hold onto the puck, even in situations that call for it.

When Stamkos has just three goals and the Lightning still have 36 through nine games, it's a sign that the team is receiving offensive contributions from up and down the lineup.

Steven Stamkos and Nikita Kucherov have the Lightning off to an electric start.

He opened the season by going 3-1 in his first four starts, despite posting a save percentage of.900 and goals-against average of almost 3.75. This included a 43-save shutout against the Columbus Blue Jackets on the road and a follow-up performance against the Pittsburgh Penguins where he yielded just one goal.

Vasilevskiy robbed Penguins forward Carl Hagelin near the end of the first period, in what was then a 2-0 game.

"I thought we had some chances", Canes' head coach Bill Peters said.

Lightning: Return home, where they are 5-0-0, to face Detroit on Thursday.

Jaccob Slavin scored and Scott Darling made 24 saves for the Hurricanes, playing their first home game in two weeks. They carry a 3-2-1 record j to this contest. The Lightning are playing much more aggressively and the forecheck is much better than it was a year ago.
