Hi Lightning fans!
With two big wins this week, the Bolts go for three tonight in Phoenix against the Coyotes. We'll be touching on many topics on Sun Sports, including these:
| ||KEY 1: KEEP THE PK HUMMING |
There are good signs of this unit coming around. It held the Stars to 4 shots in blanking them on their 4 chances last night. It's become more aggressive with solid performances shutting out the Boston and Vancouver PP's..
| ||KEY 2: GOOD STARTS ARE A NICE HABIT |
The bad starts are so last week. The Lightning have outscored Boston and Dallas 2-0, and outshot them 24-11 in the first period...modest success but they'll take it. Phoenix has won only 3 games when they haven't scored first..
| ||KEY 3: FIND A WAY |
This will be a tough back-to-back, but it would be huge to get a win. Not only would it be three in a row, but it would the first consecutive wins on the road all season.
Could very well be Roly vs. Smitty tonight in net. Enjoy the game everyone!
