Defenseman making debut for Tampa Bay @NHLdotcom

Mikhail Sergachev scored in his Tampa Bay Lightning debut, a 4-3 win against the Carolina Hurricanes at PNC Arena.

Sergachev, the No. 9 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft, was acquired from the Montreal Canadiens on June 15 in the trade that sent forward Jonathan Drouin to Montreal. The 19-year-old put Tampa Bay ahead 3-1 when he beat goalie Cam Ward at 4:28 of the second period.

Adam Erne, Tye McGinn and Boris Katchouk scored for the Lightning.

Lucas Wallmark, Derek Ryan and Sebastian Aho scored for the Hurricanes. It was Ryan's third goal of the preseason.

Tampa Bay's Peter Budaj made 18 saves on 20 shots before being relieved to start the third period by Michael Leighton, who allowed one goal on 12 shots. Ward made 19 saves on 22 shots, and Jeremy Smith allowed one goal on three shots in relief.
