by Dave Mishkin /

On the Lightning's team defense...
The Lightning went 6-2-0 on their recently-completed eight-game homestand and should feel good about their ability to bank 12 of 16 possible points. They rallied from deficits in four of those six wins - in three of those, they trailed in the third period.

Mishkin's Extra Shift: Lightning 4, Maple Leafs 3

Lightning broadcaster Dave Mishkin recaps the Bolts 4-3 comeback win vs. Toronto

by Dave Mishkin /

This was quite the comeback for the Lightning. And it was made possible by a huge turnaround in how the Lightning were playing. After an even opening 10 minutes, the Leafs carried play for the rest of the first and much of the second. They were quick to pucks, efficient in moving up ice with speed and defended tenaciously. The Lightning, on the other hand, committed numerous turnovers and struggled to generate many shots or scoring chances.
