Bolts at Coyotes Keys to the Game

Keys to the Game

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!
