This Lightning team is off to a hot start this season. They are right back near the top of the league standings like they always are. Fresh off of a Stanley Cup, they want to go back-to-back and make a statement on the state of the team. The Hurricanes are coming off a great win over Tampa Bay the other night. Tampa is looking to avenge that loss that saw them not score a single goal. They put on a performance tonight with a 4-2 win over the Canes.

Ondrej Palat is such an underrated player in this league. That is his seventh goal of the season. With the absence of Kucherov, Palat is stepping up big time. The two teams play each other again on Wednesday in Tampa Bay this time. Who will take game three? Let us know.
