Tampa Bay, Fla.–The Tampa Bay Lightning are off to a hot start into the 2018-19 National Hockey League season as they have a record of four wins, one loss, and one overtime loss. In their home opener on October 6, 2018, they defeated the Florida Panthers 2-1 in a shootout. They fell behind in their second game of the season as they lost to the Vancouver Canucks 4-1 when they let three goals in the last ten minutes of the third period.

The Lightning struck back with a huge win over the Columbus Blue Jackets defeating the Blue Jackets 8-2. The Lightning had rearranged their lines, moving Yanni Gourde and Brayden Point to the first line with Captain Steven Stamkos. This led to the reunion of the triplet’s line, a line consisting of Ondrej Palat, Tyler Johnson, and Nikita Kucherov who are a dominant line throughout the whole NHL.

They had their offense going once again with a win against the Carolina Hurricanes 4-2 with Tyler Johnson getting the hat trick. A hat trick in hockey is whenever a player scores three goals in one game and then fans throw their hats onto the ice.

The Lightning kept striking with another win over the Detroit Red Wings 3-1. They were so close to winning their sixth game of the season but took an overtime loss against the Minnesota Wild 5-4. They came right back and destroyed the Chicago Blackhawks 6-3 with a record of shots in the second period with a total of thirty three shots. They totaled fifty four shots in the game.

The Lightning play Vegas’ Golden Knights tonight, Oct. 26.
