The Lightning may be toast. Tampa Bay had a reign over the NHL that lasted until this past summer, when they lost the Stanley Cup to the Colorado Avalanche. Now, the Lightning are 3-4-0 and just lost to the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday night 4-2. Tampa Bay is just too top heavy and lack depth and speed in both groups. The goaltending has a combined 3.29 GAA and .909 SV%. The Lightning have scored 20 goals this season and 11 of them are from Steven Stamkos and Brayden Point. Secondary scoring needs to kick in, plus more activity from the defense.
The Ducks are in the midst of a five-game losing streak. Anaheim has failed to score more than two goals in four of five games during the streak. The Ducks’ blue line has been a disaster with John Klingberg and Kevin Shattenkirk getting the bulk of the minutes. Troy Terry and Trevor Zegras remain bright spots but still have a ways to go to getting this group on the right track.
