Ryan Callahan Celebration Highlights Lightning’s Victory In Sunrise

Domingue Sets Lightning Franchise Record In Victory



Nikita Kucherov ended a 10-game scoreless streak with a pair of goals and Steven Stamkos, Ryan Callahan, and Brayden Point each scored as the Tampa Bay Lightning defeated the Florida Panthers 5-2.

Louis Domingue made 25-of-27 saves to earn his 10th-consecutive win and establish a franchise record for longest personal win streak by a goalie. The previous mark was held by  John Grahame from November 14 through December 10, 2005, and matched by Andrei Vasilevskiy from Oct. 9-30, 2017.  Domingue improves to 18-4-2 on the season.

The win improves the Bolts to 41-11-4 and the victory marks their 20th road win on the year. It’s their second straight season with 20 or more road wins and seventh time in franchise history.

Frank Vatrano and Denis Malgin scored for the Panthers who fall to 23-23-8 on the year. Panthers’ goalie Roberto Luongo replaced James Reimer in the third period and made nine saves. With the appearance, Luongo passed Patrick Roy into second place on the NHL’s all-time list for games played bye a goal (1,030).

Callahan Scores:

Ryan Callahan, a healthy scratch the last three games, returned to the lineup with Ondrej Palat day-to-day, scored his sixth goal of the season to push the Bolts lead to 3-1. He has recorded points in five of his last eight games (16 team games), putting up three goals and three assists.

Point Sets Career High:

Brayden Point scored his 32nd goal of the matching his career high (32) set back in 2017-2018. His power-play goal pulled him into a tie with Boston’s David Pastrnak for the NHL lead for power-play goals.

Lightning Return Home:

Tampa Bay returns home to start another three-game homestand, beginning with Tuesday’s matchup against the Western Conference-leading Calgary Flames at 7:30 p.m.

I am a fan of all sports but am most passionate about baseball. From the fanatical to analytical, nothing about the game escapes me. Being born and raised in Northeast Ohio I'm very familiar with the heartache and pain that sports can bring and hope that I bring some understanding of the other side to my coverage. I will focus mostly on baseball but also cover the Tampa Bay Lightning, one of the most electric franchises in all of sports. Always willing to converse about any sport and have only one rule and that is be respectful at all times.
