Power Rankings
Dipping into their surplus of draft picks to bring in Braydon Coburn was an interesting move, and one that improves the team right now. They also got a pair of draft picks out of former first-rounder Brett Connolly, who hasn't quite panned out.
The Lightning are almost through their hellacious February ride with only Western Conference opponents on the schedule. They've gone 5-5-1 with one game to go and have been thoroughly challenged by top teams.
The Lightning's weird February schedule in which they play only Western Conference opponents has been challenging. They've gone 3-3-2 so far with four games remaining before they get out of it.
We're going to learn an awful lot about the Lightning over the month of February. Due to a quirk in the schedule, they do not play one game against an Eastern Conference foe. They're off to a 2-1-1 start.
The Lightning have won seven of their last 10 games and own the East's best record. Divisional opponents Montreal and Detroit each trail by a single point however as the Atlantic race just keeps heating up.
After heading into the All-Star break on a three-game winning streak, the Lightning are among five teams in the 30-win club and look to be the favorites to win the Atlantic. Staying healthy is the biggest challenge ahead.
The Lightning have so many weapons at its disposal, but Nikita Kucherov might be one of the best kept secrets in the NHL. The 21-year-old is on a 74-point pace in his second NHL season.
The Lightning have won seven of their last 10, but a tough loss to the Flyers included a few injuries to key players. Tampa has had its depth tested at times this year and has answered each challenge pretty well.
The Lightning's offensive attack remains awesome, but Tyler Johnson's individual season has been even better. He's fifth in league scoring with 43 points and leads all players with 36 points at even strength.
The Lightning became the first team in the East to hit 50 points. Scoring 122 goals is impressive, especially when considering their scoring balance. Everyone contributes.
Preseason Power Rankings
Steven Stamkos, Victor Hedman and Ben Bishop look to be providing exactly what the Lightning expect from each. Tampa has points in all three games.
