Lightning Round: Darren Raddysh thought he lost his first NHL goal

Darren Raddysh had to wait a little bit for his first career NHL goal to be confirmed last night after his shot on the Lightning’s second goal of the game in a 6-3 loss to the New York Rangers was initially credited to him. It was later changed to having gone off Brandon Hagel, only for the goal to be given back to Raddysh a couple hours after the final horn.

The 27-year-old rookie now has one goal and two assists in 13 games for the Lightning this season. He is also signed at about league minimum for next season.

Here is Justin’s recap from that loss to the Rangers.

A flat start, a bad third, and some fights all add up to a loss.

As well as Dave Mishkin’s thoughts after the game.

The Chicago Wolves are attempting to go out on their own as they plan to not have an NHL affiliation next season. That means no road to the NHL for their players, no prospects on ELCs or depth contracts, all while managing under the league’s veteran rules. The Wolves management and ownership have been complaining for a while that they want more autonomy with roster construction, and on one hand they’ll get it, but I don’t think they’ll be able to find a whole roster worth of non-veteran AHLers without skyrocketed salaries to compensate for zero chances of being in the NHL. Good luck to them, I guess.

The Boston Bruins cannot activate Taylor Hall during the regular season without putting a big contract on LTIR, so are they just lying about this as an injury at this point? I thought the NHL said they were going to investigate stuff like this now.
