Thursday’s game against the New York Rangers was very fun to watch. The Lightning scored nine times and three of them happened during a one minute span. But Justin found out that this not even a franchise record [Raw Charge]
The record for the fastest three goals in Lightning history belongs to the 2007-08 squad that accomplished the feat in just 42 seconds. Vincent Lecavalier kicked off the scoring with his third goal of the game at the 17:43 mark of the third period. Michel Oullet followed with his 14th at 18:15. Jason Ward wrapped up the trifecta of goals ten seconds later with his 8th. All three goals came against Rick DiPietro and were at even strength. They turned a relatively close game into an 8-4 win for the Lightning.
Another fact for the lovers of hockey history: yesterday it was already 17 years since Dave Andreychuk became the first player to score 250 power play goals in the NHL
THIS DATE IN 2002: @TBLightning forward Dave Andreychuk became the first NHL player to score 250 career power-play goals. He would finish his career with 274 power-play markers – still the highest total in NHL history. #NHLStats— NHL Public Relations (@PR_NHL) November 15, 2019

Last night’s Crunch recap from Justin:
Reid Boucher returned to the Utica line-up with aplomb as his hat trick fueled the Comets to a 5-2 win over the Syracuse Crunch in a penalty-filled game. The two teams each recorded two power play goals, but it was Utica’s three goal outburst in the second period that was the difference.
Boucher had not played since November 1st as he dealt with an injury. His return sparked a Comets offense that had only scored seven goals in their previous six games. Outside of their power play, Syracuse offered little offense at even strength in the defeat. Alex Barre-Boulet and Boris Katchouk had the goals for the Crunch as Spencer Martin stopped 17 of 21 shots in the first two periods while Scott Wedgewood stopped all seven shots he faced in relief.
Syracuse looks to end their two-game losing streak on Saturday as they take on the Cleveland Monsters at 7:00pm.
Boris Katchouk finished off a nifty pass from Ross Colton
Hockey Canada will announce their selection camp roster on December 2nd, so it will be something to keep an eye on. With the performance Foote had at the World Junior Summer Showcase in August, his solid start to the season with Kelowna, and standout game at the Canada-Russia series, I’m sure he’ll be in the running to make Canada’s team next month.
