YouTube Tuesday is a weekly feature where we feature a video that has to do with the Lightning or a Lightning player when they were with another team. We may occasionally feature important moments in the world of hockey.
Returning from a four game road trip, the Lightning were riding an eight game winning streak where opponents were averaging 1.625 goals per game while the Lightning were averaging 3.625 goals per game. More impressive, 6 of the 8 wins had come on the road and only one after regulation, a shootout win against the Winnipeg Jets.
The Lightning were set to take on the Carolina Hurricanes at home on March 5th, 2016 for a Saturday home game. Coming out in their black third jerseys, the Lightning were ready to play. The Triplets were especially ready to get things done with Palat scoring two goals including his 50th career goal, Tyler Johnson had a goal and an assist and Nikita Kucherov contributed two assists. Alex Killorn would get the game winner in overtime for a 4-3 win to set a new franchise record with their 9th consecutive win.
Unfortunately, the Lightning would end the streak two days later in Philadelphia as they lost 4-2 against the Flyers.
