Lightning Host Winnipeg Jets After Loss in Nashville

By Bradley Walker, 1010 Sports

Tampa, Fla. (CBS) The Tampa Bay Lightning went in to Nashville on Thursday and lost 5-3 to end their brief run on the road. Mike Fisher rejoined Nashville after offseason shoulder surgery and led the Predators to their first home win of the season with two goals and an assist.

Tampa Bay entered Thursday’s game on a three-game win streak, but failed to keep the streak alive before heading home to face Winnipeg.

Steven Stamkos had two goals for the bolts, and Teddy Purcell had the other goal in the loss. The Lightning allowed the Preds to take an early 2-0 lead in the first period, but Stamkos and Purcell answered with one goal each to draw a tie at the end of the first.

Nashville dominated the second period with goals from Patric Hornqvist, Nick Spaling and Mike Fisher to take a commanding lead heading into the third period.

Mathieu Garon and Dwayne Roloson shared time in net, but Garon allowed all five goals on 17 shots, while Rolson blocked 10-of 10 in his time on the ice.

It was not a one-sided affair, but Nashville certainly came out with more intensity and played a physical game. The bolts haven’t fared well on the road this season, but they will return home to face the Winnipeg Jets tonight at 7:30 PM ET.

The Bolts hold an 11-game win streak against Winnipeg, formerly the Thrashers, so hopefully history will be a good indication of  things to come for the Lightning tonight.
