Flyers vs Lightning – NHL Game Recap – October 18, 2022

Tampa, Florida – – Carter Hart held 37 rounds, Noah Keats He scored a goal in the tiebreak in the third period, and Philadelphia beat Tampa Bay Lightning 3-2 Tuesday night as the Flyers won their third consecutive season opener.

Hart has saved the run before Brayden Point In the first period he improved to 1-5-1 against Tampa Bay.

Cates completed the rise from a two-goal deficit by scoring from the hole after a turn in 12:44 of the third.

“Carter was fantastic,” said Flyers coach John Tortorella. “Keep us in it. We finally found a way. Hopefully we build a bit of a resilience mindset. I think every time it happens that way and it works, it just builds it for you.”

Stephen Stamkos He had two goals in power play and extended his season-opening goal streak to four games with Lightning, who interrupted his 10-game winning streak against the Flyers.

Stamkos has six goals during the second longest season-starting goal streak in the team’s history. Nikita Kucherov He holds a franchise record with seven, set in 2017-18.

Andrei Vasilevsky He made 21 saves for Lightning, who opened the season by dropping two of three on the road.

“It’s stinging,” said Lightning coach John Cooper. “We shouldn’t leave this game without points…maybe we should have left two points. This group should finish the game, but we didn’t. Maybe that’s a bit of a concern.”

And the lightning lost in the league championship last season after winning the Stanley Cup twice in a row.

“You’d probably take things for granted with this team for just the last decade, what happened,” Cooper said. “Early this week and the first half week, two weeks, things are not going the way we used to. We have to fight through that, you have to be a man.”

Stamkos opened the scoring with a pair of Power-play goals by 2:47 early in the second. The first came at 1:25 off a neat lane Vladislav Namestnikov.

Kucherov helped score both Stamkos goals as he moved past Lightning captain Jeremy Roenick to 25th on the all-time goal-playing list with 185 goals.
