Patrice Bergeron scored his 1000th career point in a game the Lightning started having troubles with injuries and ended a little too little too late. [Raw Charge]
“In the first period of their game against the Boston Bruins, the Tampa Bay Lightning were aggressive and precise. In the second period they were sloppy and on their heels. In the third period they found some of that aggression again. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough to overcome the sloppy second period where they surrendered three goals. A rally in the third fell short and they lost 5-3, snapping their four-game winning streak.”

Second period over. Lightning give up three goals and now trail the Bruins 4-1. Everything the Lightning did right in the first period, the Bruins did better in the second period. The difference was that Ullmark was better in the first than Vasilevskiy was in the second period.— Raw Charge (@RawCharge) November 22, 2022
The Lightning are battling injuries right now as Cooper said in the pregame that it was a mission to find even 20 healthy guys (the Bolts ended up going 11/7). Luckily the team’s next game isn’t until Friday.
Cooper on tonight’s lineup: “We’re fighting to put 20 guys on the ice tonight, to be honest, so let’s hope we’ve got 20 healthy.”— Chris Krenn (@Chris_Krenn) November 21, 2022
On if the #Bolts could go with 11 forwards and seven defensemen: “There’s a chance we go 11 and six. We’ll have to see tonight.”
Here is the Crunch Wrap from the weekend. The Crunch are heating up! [Raw Charge]
“The Syracuse Crunch are heating up. Benoit Groulx’s slow and steady reputation is carrying the narrative for another season. It’s hard to deny the body of success Coach Groulx has staying patient with teams as they look to have some regular season success. As this weekend showed, a Groulx-coached team can win, and they can win in a variety of ways.”
