Lightning Lead Sabres 1-0 At First Intermission

There was a lot of back and forth play but only one puck found the back of the net.

The Lighting outshot the Sabres 12-6 but the only one that matters is the power play goal Tyler Johnson (assist to Valtteri Filppula and Matt Carle) delivered at the 12:48 mark.

The Lightning out-shot the Sabres 12-6 and killed one penalty in the first period while scoring on one of two power play opportunities.




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.
