Tyler Johnson Shorthanded Goal Gives Bolts Early Lead

Bolts Jump Out To Early Lead On Tyler Johnson Short-Handed Goal

The Tampa Bay Lighting lead the Phoenix Coyotes 1-0 at the first intermission thanks to a nifty shorthanded goal by Tyler Johnson at the 11:26 mark of the opening period.

It was Johnson’s 20th goal of the season and his fourth shorthanded goal. As a team the Lighting are now tied for second in the league with nine shorthanded goals.

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.
