Mishkin's Extra Shift: Lightning 6, Flyers 5 - OT

Lightning radio broadcaster Dave Mishkin recaps Tampa Bay's 6-5 overtime victory over the Flyers on Saturday

by Dave Mishkin / TampaBayLightning.com

Certainly, there's a lot to unpack from this one. So many twists and turns. Early on, Louis Domingue kept his team in the game. Then, in the second period and first half of the third, the Lightning executed some high-level plays to build a 5-1 lead. The Flyers, buoyed by two quick power play goals, regained momentum in the second half of the third and tacked on two more tallies to tie the game. Overtime was wide-open but brief - Anthony Cirelli's determined effort to maintain control of the puck led to his winning goal.

Mishkin's Extra Shift: Lightning 4, Penguins 3

Lightning radio broadcaster Dave Mishkin recaps the Bolts' 4-3 win over Pittsburgh

by Dave Mishkin / TampaBayLightning.com

There were a few key segments in this topsy-turvy game that led to the Lightning's victory. The Penguins, after grabbing a 2-0 lead, took three separate minor penalties within a 10-second span in the closing moments of the first. The Lightning cashed in on all three opportunities, with Brayden Point recording a natural hat trick and setting a franchise record in the process. Then, after the Pens tied the score at three, the Lightning scored the all-important next goal, a Yanni Gourde power play tally. That turned out to be the game-winner. Finally, in the third period, the Lightning delivered a terrific defensive performance, helping them preserve the 4-3 lead and snap their two-game losing streak.

Burns: 3 Things we learned from a powerful win in Pittsburgh

Lightning beat writer Bryan Burns recaps Tampa Bay's come-from-behind win over the Penguins

by Bryan Burns / TampaBayLightning.com

Admit it, when Phil Kessel scored in the first period to give Pittsburgh a 2-0 lead over Tampa Bay at PPG Paints Arena Thursday, you thought the Lightning were in deep trouble.

Tampa Bay entered Pittsburgh having lost two-consecutive games for the first time all season. Earlier Thursday, the Lightning learned they'd be without All-Star goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy indefinitely as he recovers from a lower-body injury. And the Bolts came into the game against the Penguins giving up the opening goal in eight of their nine previous games.

So what do the Lightning do?

They promptly go out and give up two goals, both on the power play, in the first period for the third game in a row.

For some reason, it seemed the hockey gods had fallen out of favor with the Lightning.

But then Brayden Point proved he's no mere mortal.
