Burns: 3 things we learned from shutting out the Blues

Lightning beat writer Bryan Burns recaps the Bolts 3-0 win in St. Louis

by Bryan Burns / TampaBayLightning.com

Tampa Bay's game in St. Louis, billed as the best in the East versus the best in the West, lost a bit of its luster when Blues' second-leading scorer Jaden Schwartz and top defenseman Alex Pietrangelo were placed on injured reserve prior to the game.

Still, the Lightning hadn't won in St. Louis since the 2009-10 season, going 0-4-1 since. And the Bolts and the Blues were the top teams in the NHL entering Tuesday's matchup.

The Lightning took care of business, leaning on Andrei Vasilevskiy, rapidly emerging as perhaps the best goalie in the NHL, for a 3-0 victory to establish supremacy atop the League standings.

Mishkin's Extra Shift: Lightning 3, Blues 0

Lightning broadcaster Dave Mishkin recaps the Bolts 3-0 win in St. Louis

by Dave Mishkin / TampaBayLightning.com

This was a closely-contested battle between the two top point teams in the NHL. It came down to a handful of key plays that swung the Lightning's way.  

Both clubs brought a high compete-level to the game. To an extent, that led to a tight checking matchup. But neither team was flawless in its defensive performance. Both clubs had plenty of scoring chances - it happened to be one of those games in which the scoring chances didn't yield many goals. Goalies Andrei Vasilevskiy and Jake Allen had something to do with that, of course. But there were other opportunities that didn't even yield a shot on goal.
