Mishkin: Sharks 2, Lightning 1

Lightning broadcaster Dave Mishkin recaps the Bolts 2-1 loss to the Sharks

by Dave Mishkin / TampaBayLightning.com

In many ways, this game was similar to the other contests the Lightning have played so far on this road trip. It was another contest in which the Lightning defended hard, limited opposition shots and scoring chances and gave themselves a chance to get points.

Unfortunately, they weren't able to convert on enough of their own scoring chances against Sharks goalie Aaron Dell, who held the Lightning to one goal on 25 shots. And despite their strong overall defensive performance, they did allow two goals and, as a result, didn't get any points out of the game.
