When the Panthers came into the Tampa Bay Times Forum, they gave the Lightning everything they had and almost came out on top.
Thankfully, almost doesn’t get you a win.
The Lightning came out on top 5-4.
A shootout goal from Jonathan Drouin gave the Bolts the point they needed to come out on top.
After a disappointing loss to the Nashville Predators, the Lightning’s first loss of the preseason, you can bet that the Lightning are going to bring their ‘A’ game to get a win tonight against the Panthers. Do they have what it takes to come out on top and bring home the ‘W’ tonight? I guess we’ll have to listen and find out.
Thanks to our friends over at Lightning Shout, we know who will be in tonight’s lineup in Estero.
|Jonathan Drouin||Eric Brewer||Ben Bishop|
|Martin St. Louis||Mark Barberio||Kristers Gudlevskis|
|Brett Connolly||Keith Aulie|
|Ryan Malone*||Dmitry Korobov|
|Tom Pyatt||J.P. Cote|
|Nikita Kucherov||Matt Taormina|
*Ryan Malone is not in tonight’s lineup as a precaution due to an Upper Body Injury.
There are a lot of players in tonight’s lineup that are currently fighting for the last few spots on the Lightning’s main roster. You can rest assured that these same players will be giving it everything they possibly have in order to let Head Coach Jon Cooper see what they have to offer should they be given a shot at the big game.
Do you think our Bolts have what it takes overcome and put another ‘W’ on the board tonight? Who do you think will be the standout of tonight’s matchup? Sound off in the comments below and let us know what you think!
