Lightning drop road game in The Hat

Team disappointed in close 3-2 loss

We just had one game this weekend on Saturday night in Medicine Hat.

We did not play too well the first period up managed to be up 1-0. We were still up 2-0 after the second period and seemed to have the game in hand, however in the third period Medicine Hat scored about two minutes in and you could feel the momentum shift somewhat.

They ended up scoring two more goals in the third and the final was a loss 3-2. Despite being outshot 31-24, I felt we certainly had the better scoring chances, but couldn’t capitalize on several breakaways and other great opportunities.

We certainly had our chances on the power play, but only ended up 1 for 7 for the night. We will continue to work on this part of our game, as it appears we are more disciplined than most of the other teams in the league.

It was a disappointing loss and a long bus ride home.
