Mishkin's Extra Shift: Lightning 6, Blackhawks 3

Lightning radio broadcaster Dave Mishkin recaps Tampa Bay's 6-3 win over Chicago

by Dave Mishkin / TampaBayLightning.com

Obviously, the big storyline from this game was the Lightning's record-setting second period. Their 33 shots on goal in the middle stanza set an NHL record for shots in a period. Three of those shots went in the net, helping the Lightning build a 4-1 lead after two periods. But another significant segment in the game occurred earlier. After tying the game at one with Alexandre Fortin's goal, Chicago posted 13 shots on net in the final eight minutes of the first period. Louis Domingue stopped them all, including a highlight reel pad-stacking save on Patrick Kane. Domingue's work kept the game tied at one after 20 minutes and set the stage for the Lightning's second period onslaught.

Lightning radio broadcaster Dave Mishkin recaps the Bolts' overtime loss to the Wild on Saturday

by Dave Mishkin / TampaBayLightning.com

This game was certainly a mixed bag for the Lightning. On the one hand, they squandered a 3-1 lead. After a terrific first period, they weren't able to maintain that level in the final 40 minutes (Minnesota's elevated play after the first had something do to with it, of course).

by Dave Mishkin / TampaBayLightning.com

Beginning the season with five consecutive home games sounds great, doesn't it? Well, it's great only if a team can take advantage of the favorable schedule. The Lightning knew that a challenging five-game road trip (which begins Saturday in Minnesota) spanning three different time zones awaited them after the homestand. So there was some pressure on the team to do well in the opening five. Fortunately for the Bolts, they avoided potential potholes and accumulated eight of a possible 10 points. Here are some of the reasons why they were so successful.

by Bryan Burns / TampaBayLightning.com

If you asked Tampa Bay Lightning head coach Jon Cooper before the season started if he'd be happy with his team winning four of their first five games, he'd absolutely take that every time.

Truth is, the Lightning are still a bit salty they didn't go 5-0-0.

Lightning radio broadcaster Dave Mishkin recaps the Bolts' 3-1 win over the Red Wings

by Dave Mishkin / TampaBayLightning.com

This was an impressive win for the Lightning. The Red Wings were seeking their first win of the season after opening with an 0-4-2 record. They were coming off consecutive losses of 8-2 and 7-3.
