Tampa Bay Lightning prospect report: High scoring week for almost everyone

New, comments

Hat tricks! Highlights! We’ve got it all!

NHL: Preseason-Nashville Predators at Tampa Bay Lightning Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

It was quite the week for the little Lightning. Two hat tricks, three players putting up five point weeks and a few more who had four points. There’s a lot to watch, and to help you with all these highlights I added players numbers next to their names so you know who to watch for. Stick tap to Boomkk47 for the suggestion.
