Lightning's patience with Hedman paying dividends

Saturday, 09.27.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014-2015 Season Preview

Tal Pinchevsky - Staff Writer continues its preview of the 2014-15 season, which will include in-depth looks at all 30 teams throughout September.

Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman can still pinpoint the moment his season, and perhaps his career, turned.

Eight games into the 2013-14 season, his fifth in the NHL, the second pick in the 2009 NHL Draft struggled through one of the worst performances of his career in a 5-0 loss to the Boston Bruins.

"That Boston game was a tough game, but after that I felt like I took off," Hedman said. "That was a big turning point."

After posting a career-worst minus-5 rating against Boston, Hedman responded with two points in a 6-5 overtime win against the Chicago Blackhawks, including his first goal in 41 games. It was the turning point in a career year that established him as a top NHL defenseman. But he still feels he has something to prove.

Quote of the Day

You've got to focus on playing good hockey. When we do that we give ourselves a chance to win games. Win games and then maybe we''ll have a chance at the end. You can't worry about something like (the division title) when we're not playing our best hockey down the stretch. We'll figure things out together the way we always do and get back on the right page.
