  • Lightning's Brayden Point: Hats off in road win

    Point ended up with a plus-4 rating and three shots on goal in 18:03 of ice time across 23 shifts. The only thing that didn't go right for Point was his work at the faceoff dot, winning just one of his seven faceoff opportunities.

  • Lightning's Brayden Point: Gets goal in OT loss

    Point scored a goal Wednesday in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Jets.

    It was Point's eighth goal of the season. He tied the game 2-2 at 6:13 of the second period with a shot from the low slot that went short side on Connor Hellebuyck. Point has 24 points, including eight goals, and 59 shots in 20 games. That goal total is well off his career high of 51 goals from last year. Point's 13.6 shooting percentage is below his career mark of 17.8 and well below his 21.7 rate from 2022-23. At this rate, Point could deliver 30-35 goals and still top 90 points.

  • Lightning's Brayden Point: Three-point night

    Point notched three points, including scoring one goal on six shots, against the Blackhawks on Thursday.

  • Lightning's Brayden Point: Gets two points versus Toronto

    Point collected a goal and an assist in Tampa Bay's 6-5 overtime loss to Toronto on Monday.

    Point earned his second straight multi-point game, giving him four markers and two helpers in that span. Through 12 contests this season, he's up to six goals and 16 points. As fantastic as that level of production is, it's not surprising. Point is a high-end forward who finished the 2022-23 campaign with 51 goals and 95 points in 82 outings and is capable of putting up similar numbers again.

  • Lightning's Brayden Point: Four-point outburst in win

    Point had a hat trick and an assist in a 6-4 win over the Senators on Saturday.

    It was Point's second career hat trick. His first came on Nov. 15, 2018 when he notched all three goals in 1:31 in a game against the Pens. Point put the Bolts up 2-1 with a short-side wrister in the first minute of the second period. His second came on a jam play that trickled over the goal line later in the second. His third, which was a redirection of a feed from Steven Stamkos on the power play, stood as the eventual winner. Point became the 10th player in franchise history to score multiple hat tricks in his career.

  • Lightning's Brayden Point: Finally gets first goal of season

    Point scored a goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 3-0 win over Carolina.

    It was Point's first marker of the season. He scored the game-winner at 19:06 of the first period. The 27-year-old redirected a Victor Hedman slapper from the point past Pyotr Kochetkov while on the power play. Point has nine points, including eight assists, on the season, and he's currently riding a four-game, five-point streak (one goal, four assists).

  • Lightning's Brayden Point: Logs three assists

    Point picked up three assists in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Predators.

    Point recorded helpers on a pair of Nick Paul power-play goals in the third period before adding a third assist on Nikita Kucherov's empty-netter. After tallying career highs in goals (51) and points (95) last year, the 27-year-old Point seems to be picking up where he left off to start the 2023-24 campaign. He should be a high-end fantasy option again this season while centering Kucherov and Steven Stamkos on Tampa Bay's top line.

  • Lightning's Brayden Point: Game-time decision Monday

    Point (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision for Game 4 against Toronto on Monday, Gabby Shirley of Bally Sports Florida reports.

    Head coach Jon Cooper said Monday morning that Point "should be in," so consider the Lightning forward to be closer to probable for Game 4. The 27-year-old Point was able to return to Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Leafs after crashing into the end boards. He has notched two goals and one assist in three games this postseason.

  • Lightning's Brayden Point: Returns after awkward fall

    Point left the game temporarily after an awkward hit in the third period of Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to Toronto in Game 3. He laid on the ice for a few minutes holding his chest, but he was able to return to action.

    He finished with seven shots and three hits, but no points. The hit was a high-speed impact with the boards after he and Morgan Rielly battled for the puck in the Leafs end. Point got up and took a few strides toward his bench, but he fell hard to the ice clutching his chest. There was no update on the specifics of his injury, but the Bolts are hoping Point simply had the wind knocked out of him, rather than broken ribs. He'll be sore Sunday, though.
